  1. 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.

It also had a towing hook and could pull artillery pieces. Type 98 So-Da Troop/ammo carrier by g.nat, on Flickr Type 98 So-Da Troop/ammo carrier by g.nat, on Flickr The original could carry up to 10 troops!! My LEGO version... not quite as many!! Type 98 So-Da Troop/ammo carrier by g.nat, on Flickr Type 98 So-Da Troop/ammo carrier by g.nat, on Flickr Type 100 Te-Re Artillery Spotting Vehicle Almost identical to the Type 98, this variant was intended for use by artillery spotters to direct long range fire. The troop/cargo section was equipped with radios and a rangefinder could be mounted on the engine deck.

Accessories are mainly Brickarms and Brick Warriors. Thanks for looking - comments always welcome.
  2. 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!!

  3. Phadeout: Part A1 LEGORACER1: Part A2 Faladrin: Part A3 Umbra-Manis: Part B1 Jansued: Part B2 Stash2sixx: Part C1 Johannsued: Part C2 Leonardo Da Bricki: Part C3 Mesabi: Part C4 Grid: Studica E4 All military campaigns need a hub for planning attacks, planning defenses, processing satellite data & reports, adapting to situations in real time, and maintaining communications with all members of the Alliance. The RoN just so happens to have set up a makeshift command post in a small town on the Northeast side of the lake in Grid E4. The Command Post has multiple soldiers attending to all of the data delivered via satellite, following the radio chatter, and communicating orders to all of the RoN soldiers in the theater of operations. The command post is set up in a warehouse built of brick and steel. It is located at a T intersection, across from a park and an abandoned butcher shop. A temporary landing pad has been set up for helicopters. Easy and quick access to drop supplies and soldiers. This is the small park where the anti-aircraft system has been set up to deal with threats from above. The RoN Alliance has also set up a temporary brig to house their prisoners of war. As for threats on the ground, there is a team in place patrolling the area. As you can see, a small squad attempted to overthrow the command post but they failed. Of the ten men that attacked, only 3 survived and have been jailed for the time being. Soon, the transport helo will arrive to take them to an undisclosed location for...questioning. Unfortunately, the media showed up and is hanging out, snapping pictures. As you can see, she is wearing the bright blue "DON'T SHOOT ME" color helmet! OOC: Group planning was intense, and to my team, sorry if I seemed a bit aggressive, I just wanted us to really rock this campaign! I promise, I plan to step back on the next Campaign mission, you have my word. I have used Brickarms and Minifig.cat weapons and gear. The custom black computer parts (6 of them) are from TnT MOC Supply. I have 4 HUMVEEs, all inspired by Brickmania builds. The dark green/brown camo one has been seen before. The Avenger S-A-M HUMVEE has a few modifications. The 2 pickup HUMVEEs were major modifications of the Avenger. I wanted to drop a Huey gunship on the landing pad, but as I didn't have air abilities yet, and I didn't want to distract from the main build of the Crossroads CP, I decided against it. The desert 6 color camo soldiers were designed by Lando of Brickmania, and the Woodland Camo for the Commander is from Citizen Brick, along with his head. Unfortunately, due to my fear of not getting pictures uploaded in time, I neglected to take an overview shot...which is usually the first shot I take! Oh well...I think the puzzle of where everything goes seems to be pretty easy; any questions, just let me know.
