    [MOC] MK V Tank

    Hi Guys, This is my first post here so tell me if I am doing things wrong. After a long time of not doing anything with lego I decided to start up again, a bit older and wiser (so they say) I started to get interested in making some more difficult models that don't exist from Lego themselves. I started snooping around and eventually bumped into Sariel & Tommy Stryvoky 's MOC's, one thing led to another and I am currently designing a MK V tank. I started using the photo's from Sariel's MK V as a reference but quickly decided that I can use other parts or design it differently. The first thing I did was another color, the original one was a dark tan color but since Lego doesn't have a lot of pieces in this color, this one went to the trashbin. Finally I decided to go with the standard tan color as this resembles the real paint job better than just standard grey. THE HISTORY: The British MK V was an upgraded version of the MK IV. It was first deployed in 1918, used in action during the closing months of World War I. The tank was improved in several aspects, chiefly the new steering system and engine, but it fell short in other areas such as mechanical reliability and its insufficient ventilation.However, the Mark V was a great improvement on the MK IV due to the use of Wilson's epicyclic steering gear meant that only a single driver was needed. -wikipedia The base model: Where am I with the project: The mechanical part is finished and the tanks drives under its own power, it works like a clutch-steer should (slow and like an elephant ) the canons work and only need some finetuning. Cosmeticaly there are some parts that need to be finished or adjusted (top of the thank needs to be finished, sponsons need to be redesigned, semaphores, exhaust & final details (STICKERS)) Tommy Styrvoky helped me a lot with the clutch drive system, this will be similar to how the tank moved in its day, thus no 0° turning circle. Please leave your thoughts, comments & ideas I am interested in hearing your opinions.
  2. The M1 Abrams is an American main battle tank. Highly mobile, designed for modern armored ground warfare, the M1 is well armed and heavily armored. Notable features include a powerful AGT1500 multifuel turbine engine, sophisticated composite armor, and separate ammunition storage. This tank has also advanced conuntermeasures. The M1A2 M1A2 Abrams is equipped with Tank Urban Survival Kit armor upgrade equipment and Common Remotely Operated Weapons Station (CROWS). The main gun is a 120 mm L/44 M256A1 smoothbore gun (42 rounds) rifled tank gun firing a variety of rounds. This version offers the tank commander an independent thermal sight and ability to, in rapid sequence, shoot at two targets without the need to acquire each one sequentially. Also has TOW missiles pod with 2x missile, on each side of the turret. SEP V.3 stand for System Enhanced Package, so this version of M1 Abrams has a number of upgrades in the areas of survivability, maintainability, full efficiency and network capability. The primary mission is to provide mobile, protected firepower for combined-arms maneuver and wide-area security. The Abrams must be capable of engaging the enemy in any weather, day or night, on the multi-dimensional, non-linear battlefield using firepower, maneuver and shock effect. This is a combination of developmental upgrades and the addition of mature technologies that include the Ammunition DataLink (ADL), improved 120mm ammunition, Improved Forward-Looking Infrared (IFLIR) and the low-profile (LP) CROWS. TUSK stand for Tank Urban Survival Kit, the TUSK 2 update is an advanced and more efficient upgrade of the first version that increases the survival capacity of the tank in urban battlefields.

  3. I built a new ride on vehicle for Brick 2015 at London Excel. It was super popular and I am so tired now (3 day event, 20,000 + people) Uses 10 NTX's 22 motors, rotacaster 125mm wheels! Made in 5 evenings powered by RedBull
  4. The Leopard 2A7+ is the latest development of Leopard 2 German MBT series and is designed to operate both in low intensity and high intensity conflicts. The tank's protection has been increased by modular armour; the frontal protection has been improved with a dual-kit on the turret and hull front, while 360° protection against RPGs and mine protection increase the survivability of the tank in urban operations. The turret mounted MG3 has been replaced with a stabilised FLW 200 remotely controlled weapon station. The mobility, sustainability and situational awareness have also been improved. The main gun is a Rheinmetall 120 mm L/55 smoothbore gun. The engine is a MTU MB 873 Ka-501. It has been chosen by numerous armies all over the world thanks to his performances and abilities.

  5. The last time this older 7-wide industrial saddle tanker steam loco design was seen in complete form in the real world was in 2014. I have since added working pistons and an "American" style headlight for use on my US layout. (These working pistons were inspired by Hunterdobb's 2015 replica of Lady from the Thomas and the Magic Railroad movie as seen here on Flickr.) The bulk of the original model was a ScotNick creation inspired by Thomas and Friends engine "Stanley". Here we see the @ScotNick engine circa 2013. The rear of the loco, with the "glowing" firebox showing. As you probably know by now, BRS (as stated on the tank sides) stands for Brick Railway Systems, my fictional railroad company. Anyway, I thought this engine looked cool, and I don't think there was a thread about it that was a stand-alone or at least recent enough to bump up and edit, since just added the pistons two weeks ago. As usual Comments, questions, and suggestions are always welcome!

    Siege Tank

    Build myself a SiegeTank from Starcraft as i love that game :P
  7. ICE PLANET IS BACK! My latest build is an armoured vehicle decked out in Ice Planet livery used by the peaceful men as a mobile research laboratory. Ice Planet 2002 was a subtheme of LEGO Space introduced in 1993 and marked by a very cool color scheme: white, blue and trans-neon orange. Even if I've never played with these paceful guys (at that time I was a teen with other interests on my head) I've always appreciated this series. The ground vehicle is not equipped with weapons but with a lot of retro space components. Ice Planet are in fact engaged in secret researches about renewable energy rather than interplanetary wars. The canopy opens to expose a detailed little interior with such an assortment of retro-tech computers and equipment. More info and pictures here. I hope you like it The Ice Planet vehicle joins the other space armoured vehicles I built in the last few years: 1) Space Tank in Classic Space livery; 2) White Tiger Futuron Tank; 3) UFO Shado Mobile Evo; 4) B-59 Blacktron APC. Thanks for stopping by.
  8. This super heavy military tank has 4 indipendent tracks, that guarantee movement even in the event of one of them breaking, configuration which allow to face the most difficult terrain. This tank it also has a hull in ultra-resistant composite materials with specific deflecting angles to deflect enemy projectiles. It has a 2 main hatches, and an hatch in rear position in the hull. It mounts a M1128 Mobile Gun System as the main turret and employs a crew of 3 members. This is a modified version of the 7297 set.

  9. Here's my take at the father of the modern battle tank. Goals: make it green and aim for a reasonable balance between looks and functions. Also, I'm really happy with the upper glacis plate opening up just like in the real tank, because it required creating a complex compact hinge inclined in two planes.

  10. Blacktron is back! Hello from Italy! Tonight I share my latest build: a big, bad and totally black armoured personnel carrier. It's based on U-59 Explosive Truck from Joe 90, a 1960s British science-fiction television series created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson (the same producers of U.F.O. It's called B-59 where B stands for Blacktron, in fact this six-wheel APC is the new and lethal groud vehicle of Blacktron. The little ATV on the right is based on the Amphicat, a six-wheel-drive, skid steer amphibious all-terrain vehicle manufactured in the '60s by Mobility Unlimited Inc. of Auburn Hills, Michigan. The Amphicat was also used by Moonbase Alpha personnel in the television series Space: 1999. Back view and tank entrance. The interior with many details. This time thanks - to a friend of mine who is a pro-filmmaker - I produced a presentation video of the B-59. Below on YT. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by! B-59 on flickr.
  11. Hi guys At first, we want to introduce ourselves: We are three excited Lego builders: Budo, Paliason and Bedo. Each of us has built many of our own MOCs in the past. Before the recent, we decided to do something together. The main condition was to do something untraditional, original and with many details. This is the Lego project, which we will introduce to you now. It is the scene from the PC game Command & Conquer: GENERALS and its expansion ZERO HOUR. Three factions fight against each other: USA, CHINA and GLA. USA: CHINA: GLA: Our common goal is to make a large map of approx. 6.25 square meters and on it the combat scenes of vehicles and the infantry of all three opponents. The map will also include several civilian objects (farm, houses), industrial buildings (Oil derricks) but also large USA base. The model will be dedicated to exhibitions and commemorations of the great PC game C&C: GENERALS, at this year's 15th anniversary of this masterpiece.

  12. The recent Brickmania magazine featured instructions for a Type 97 Ke-Te Tankette from WW2. I did a bit of research into this obscure vehicle and discovered it spawned a couple of variants which I decided to try and recreate using the chassis of the original vehicle. The Original Brinckmania Type 97 Tankette (the real life version performed reasonably well against the Chinese but was no match for US and Soviet forces) Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Type 98 So-Da Troop/Ammo carrier The first variant was a troop and ammunition carrier. The turret was removed and the engine relocated to beside the driver freeing up the rear to carry troops/cargo.

  13. Hi guys! Recently I bought a bunch of blue pieces to mod my 7676 gunship but ended up selling it. That left me with a lot of blue bricks so I modded Lego 75151 Clone turbo tank in to a 501st version and the AT RT that came with it. Enjoy! A shot for both vehicals AT RT Here you can see it still folds up Turbo tank Interior, I fitted it with another plate so I can put troops or cargo in it Close up of plate here you can see the AT RT still fits but you will need to take the plate out I also modded the cannons because I do not like stud shooter very much So that was my mod of 75151! Hope you liked it! I would be happy to get feedback!
  14. This LAV fitted with an electric turret mounting a General Dynamics GAU-12 Equalizer 25 mm (0.984 in) 5-barreled Gatling cannon, and two missile pods each with 4 FIM-92 Stinger missiles for Short Range Air Defense (SHORAD) duties. Capacity for 990 rounds of 25 mm ammunition, and 16 (including 8 reload rounds) FIM-92 Stinger missiles. Lego LAV AD (Air Defense) by Jordan Parmegiani, su Flickr The M1128 Mobile Gun System is an eight-wheeled armored car of the Stryker armored fighting vehicle family, mounting a 105 mm tank gun.

  15. This version of LAV-25 is equipped with a very accurate and fast laser cannon: the ATHENA Laser System, a super weapon in development by USA. Has been developed to face the threat of missiles, aircrafts and drones. It's very effective and fast to tack the threat (thanks to his in-built radar) and delete them with a powerful laser ray. Actually ATHENA is only a prototype. Lego LAV-25 Athena Laser System (ATHENA LaWS) by Jordan Parmegiani, su Flickr This version of the LAV-25 is a non-lethal, directed-energy weapon developed by the U.S. military, designed for area denial, perimeter security and crowd control. Informally, the weapon is also called the heat ray since it works by heating the surface of targets, such as the skin of targeted human subjects. The ADS works by firing a high-powered beam of 95 GHz in microwave spectrum. Lego LAV Microwave Active Denial System (ADS) by Jordan Parmegiani, su Flickr

    [MOC] Lego M3 Bradley IFV

    My version of the M3 Bradley IFV. It is classified as an armored reconnaissance and scout vehicle. The M3 is fielded with two-man 25mm Bushmaster Cannon turret with a coaxial 7.62mm machine gun, and also carries more TOW missiles. The Bradley is highly capable in cross-country open terrain. The Bradley is designed for reconnaissance and to transport a squad of infantry, providing them protection from small arms fire, while also providing firepower to both suppress and eliminate most threats to friendly infantry. It is designed to be highly maneuverable and to be fast enough to keep up with heavy armor during an advance.

  17. - Train station 1944 - Finally I can show my new diorama 100% complete. I hope you enjoy my scene. Was so funny to build it. Please, check out my flickr page for more pics. about train wagons, tanks and other WWII veichles. Credits: -My BR23 was inspired by Ben Benekes model. -Panzer III it's a copy of Brickmania's set. P.S. I know, BR23 it's wrong to put into 1944 diorama (it's a 50's train) like the D.236 locomotive (this scheme of colours are post-war) but I love too much these 2 locomotive, especially with this scheme of colours.

  18. This is an all terrain vehicle, a mortar carrier armed with a 120 mm mortar on his rear side, maneuvered by a specialized crew, with a rate of fire of 16 RPM max, and a lethal range of 7 km, with blast radius of 60 m. It's still much lighter than field artillery pieces. His mortar is a modified version of the RMS6L 120MM mortar USA made. It has two door, two upper hatches, and a rear hatch for the mortar, also has a remote controlled heavy machine gun on top. His name come from the infernal judge, Minosse.

    [MOC] - Sci Fi-esque Tank

    It doesn´t happen very often that i build a tank or a military vehicle in general,in fact,this is my first Lego tank ever. I got the idea from finding a bunch of olive bricks that originated from the Marvel Hydra Tank and the Chima Crocodile Boat. I put them together loosely and all of a sudden it turned out as a shape for some futuristic tank or recon vehicle. I added some armoring plates on the sides,one of those ball shooting thingies as a cannon and even some sort of crude suspension,so the tank has all 6 wheels on the ground at all time.At least it didn´t have any problems crossing Mount Couch Cushion or Office Desk Plains. Hope you guys like it,comments are always welcome. IMG_20180630_150541_1 IMG_20180630_150558 Rotating turret, Bionicle Ball Shooter and simple suspension.

  24. Hi This my MOD of Brickmania's Renault FT tank of World War 1. The Renault FT was a French light tank introduced towards the end of WW1. Previous French tanks had followed the British idea of a large armoured box on tracks with the main gun(s) forward and machine guns protecting the flanks /rear. The problem with this idea was that the resulting tank was heavy, slow and expensive in materials and men. The solution that the French came up with was a small 2 man vehicle with driver in the forward hull, a gunner in a rotating turret (cannon and machine gun version were produced) and the engine at the rear. The idea was a success; with 5 FT's being produced for the cost of one heavy tank. On the battlefield the tanks would operate in "swarms" to overwhelm the enemy and their small size/weight allowed them to operate in woods and narrow lanes (essential once the stalemate of trench warfare had been broken). Over 3,000 were produced before the war's end and the basic design became the norm for tanks right up to the present day. This MOD is the command/communication variant, the T.S.F which stands for "Telegraphie San Fil" (wireless). Around 200 of these were built and they were used to improve communication between mobile units and for observing/reporting back on the enemy. The hull was unchanged but the turret was replaced with a fixed box-like structure containing a morse code radio and space for the operator and a commander/observer (increasing the tank's crew to 3) Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr I kept the Brinckmania hull (built using instructions from their" Great War" instruction book) and added my own superstructure. It's not perfect (the observation cupola should be half a stud wider) and the front should be sloped (I tried using cheese slopes but they looked too steep!) but overall I think it's pretty good and reasonably in scale (the tank itself is too tall but that's LEGO for you!!) I'm still trying out hatch ideas - didn't want it too bulky but I did want to be able to pose it open. I'm also planning to replace the Lego tracks with Brinckmania ones. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Here's one of the crew... had to remove his legs for the looking out the hatch pic!! Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Finally a rare colour photo of a TSF passing some British troops (loosely based on a period B&W photo I found online) The "Tommies" are from United Bricks and the helmets/rifles are Brickarms. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr I'm currently building a few Brinckmania models and many of them I have plans to MOD so who knows you may be seeing more soon!! Anyway thanks for looking!! Comments always welcome...
