Hi!

This is my first proper LEGO military scale model MOC of a real vehicle - the famous M1126 Stryker ICV!

The MOC is a true display model, very close to the true mini figure scale. I tried to stay true to the scale and detailing of the real vehicle as much as possible using many reference pictures, and I am especially proud on the Protector RWS turret :).

As a display model, the Stryker has limited play-ability - the two roof hatches can open for posing the crew inside, the Protector turret can be "turned" and moved, front wheels also can be turned. No interior detailing though.

I am very much looking forward to build a nice small diorama around this beast in the future! :excited:

Here you can see the pictures of the M1126 from my Flickr account:

Looks great!  You've worked the angles together very well, nice details & greebling, and those tan gears look great on the wheels.

Thank you all!

Well getting the front section angles right was a major hustle.. still did not manage to completely close all the gaps, but I am satisfied with the result.  :)

The original plan was to build this ICV in olive green, but I quickly understood that not only do I lack the necessary parts in that color, but there simply are not enough of needed parts made in that color to get the vehicle and all the angles right, so I went with the desert camo :)

Holy cow dude. The angles on this are absolutely fantastic. The scale is perfect. Armored vehicles/ICVs are not my forte, you did a really good job with this one.
