[MOC] Minifig Scale Armored Assault Tank & Defoliator Deployment Tank

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, as promised here are my AAT and DDT MOCs.

AAT - Armored Assault Tank

While LEGOs Clone Wars AAT is actually very close to minifig scale, many of the proportions just aren't quite right. I changed the front sections shape a fair bit, as the actual tank isn't quite so round. It sort of flattens out in the middle, I also added the scoop in the front.

In cross-section images it shows that the front domed peace is actually also a hatch, so I added that functionality since it was already on a hinge. There is enough room in the turret for a full droid, even with the hatch closed, you just need to fold the head down.

The rear hatch can also open, revealing the droid crew, 1 driver and 2 gunners.

Also did a palette swap for the AAT Lok Durd rides around in.

DDT - Defoliator Deployment Tank

The DDT design-wise isn't too different from the AAT. Shaping the stabilizers wasn't the easiest, but I think they came out alright.

The turret itself wasn't too difficult to design, but oddly enough getting the grated platform along the side proved rather annoying. I had to leave it for a while and come at it with different perspective.

As always, hope you enjoy.

Absolutely stellar, man!  You did a fantastic job with shaping and color blocking, and I love the angled guns, I'm not sure if I've seen a version that's nailed them quite as well.  Likewise with the DDT, it looks totally spot-on.  Great job beefing it up, the the stabilizers worked out well plus the defoliator cannon is pretty damn close to the show. 

I know it's spraying herbicide and not insecticide, but I wonder if the DDT name was intentional...?

Edit: I love that there's still room inside for pilots and gunners, great job with that too.

Very nice work on both vehicles. The AAT is truly a masterpiece and so much better then what Lego has given us in the past. I love that you even managed to find the space to fit an interior that can hold several droids.

The DDT is equally impressive. I especially like how the turret came out so it definitely was worth the trouble.

Do you have plans for creating these in physical form because I'd love to see that.

I really like the shaping and attention to detail on these. I must say that I definitely prefer this CW colour scheme to the tan ones from EP I.

Are these designed so that they could be built with real bricks in the correct colours? I really like how those renderings turned out and I could imagine a small diorama with all three of these and the Defoliator in action would look really cool. ;)

Wonderful, Huge and detail design, full function is delight me.

But for AAT, is it a little bit oversize? I need to re-play some TCW episodes to learn again :)

Any way, I want them, they gave me a lot of inspiration.

As with all my MOCs, I would love to actually build them, but it always comes down to lack of finances unfortunately =/

I also really like the colouring in CW, the browns and tans of the movies feels a little boring. As far as part colours, I think the AAT is 99% available in those colours, but the DDT is not, there are some pieces only available in regular blue that would have to be switched out. I changed them to dark blue for the rendering and such, hopefully they'll come out in dark blue soon.

When compared to some of my other MOCs the AAT doesn't look quite so big, it's actually a bit deceiving, but I scaled mine off of the official dimensions for the tank.

Very nice! I thought the DDT was brown though

I'm unaware of a brown version of the DDT, the two times it was shown in the CW it was dark blue. (S1E14 Defenders of Peace & S4E19 Massacre)

I mean the canno on top, it just seems too bright, but that could just be peronal.

Really cool. I like the round front a lot. But I guess the AAT needs a stand for the upper part or it will fall on it?! Or is the front heavy enough? I guess its not that easy to know from digital renders. ^^

Another set of fantastic builds! Have you ever thought of partnering with Brickvault on YouTube? MOC builders can sell their MOC's to them on their website and then other people can buy the instructions for it and you both make money off it. I’d be more than willing to pay to be able to build some of your MOC's for myself!

I never realized these were so long. I loved the CW version of the AAT but you still  managed to top that, not once but twice

I would love to see your take on something like a Separatist proton canon

Welcome to Eurobricks, but can you please stop bumping up old topics?

May I also ask the reason that you quoted me?

Sorry, I quoted you by saying that the coloration is probably the closest color it could be and that it looked more yellow on the show. I also said that If you really wanted to you could probably rub some shoepolish on the yellow bricks to have that color as a "half joke"

 

The quote, however got tacked on to the bottom of the proton cannon comment and I didn't like the way it looked

Sorry about dragging up old topics but I wanted to get message capabilities and these mocs encouraged me to make an account. Thanks for the welcome btw

Yes, but bumping up old topics isn't the right way to do it. If you participate normally it won't take long for you to reach 10 posts. Just try not to bump up that many topics at once...
