A few months ago I built a TX-130T Imperial Fighter Tank since then I have been reworking the design to make it both more accurate and more sturdy. 

I also ordered the parts in different colors so that I could built a Republic Version of the tank as I was very keen to see how it would look and well... here is the result.

Personally I am very happy with how it came out, but I'll let you judge for yourselves:

Here is the tank accompanied by some clone troopers this should give you an idea of the size compared to a minifigure, overall I'd say it is pretty much in perfect minifig scale.

Here you can see all the movable parts of the tank; the cannons can move up and down, the hatch opens up and the side engines and flaps can also move.

Like with my previous design I left some place for a gunner to fit in and I can finally showcase this to you.

Here we have a look at both this tank and my reworked Imperial tank, overal there aren't many changes between the two. Which one is your favourite? (Note you can also see a Stormtrooper in the gunners seat of the imperial one as I didn't highlight this in my previous pictures)

And here are both tanks with their hatches closed.

 

So that was pretty much it. I hope that you liked my version of the Republic Fighter tank, if you did (or didn't) be sure to leave me some feedback as I would greatly appreciate it.

As always have a nice day!

Compared to the imperial version the republican looks like strawberry icecream :pir-laugh:
Though that doesn't harm the great design! some republican vehicles are pretty colourful. Plus the Lego white is way too clean compared to the messy white/grey we see in "reality".

This definitely bring back memories from playing Battlefront when I was a kid. Picking a favourite is really hard, I love the colourscheme on the Republic one but there is nothing wrong with a fully grey one.

It is a great looking moc. With the release of 75167 you too could build a similarly great model as well, this thread I believe predates that set.

Haha, nice to see this thread getting a bit of a reboost given that I am actually slightly overhauling the model myself :)

I did already make a model based on a combination of this one and the one from the set, instructions can be found on Rebrickable for free: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-11884/TheIncinerator14/imperial-fighter-tank/#comments

I love the imperial version. Always loved medium and dark grey scheme for the imperials. I would love to build one for my imperial army. 

Thank you very much :) Might start working on instructions for this one when I have the time.

If you do instructions that would be greatly appreciated. I would build a pair to go with my hover tank moc that hatted sandwich designed. It would be a nice little armored section addition to my growing imperial army.
