Well, suffice to say, this has been a long time coming. I had ideas since this contest was announced, but only started building in the last week. That sounds like a great idea. Anyway, here is my entry, Admiral Seasick's Land Dreadnought. As kind of a backstory, Admiral Seasick was a rich fellow who had retired from the navy, but missed having a ship to command. However, one thing he did not miss was the rolling ocean giving him seasickness, so he wanted a ship, but not on the ocean. Thus, he contacted one of his inventor friends, and the Land Dreadnought was born. Now, the Admiral is running in a race, with some of his fellow Navy retirees, the inventor, and some assorted family members. Wish them luck, they're going to need it. Now, on to the model itself. I had many inspirations, including Mahjqa's Khagaan, armored trains, mining equipment, and of course, older naval ships. The chassis had 3 straight six engines, and steers via articulation. From a structural standpoint, it's almost complete, most of the work now is to make the thing look like a ship of sorts. The wacky functions are going to be lots of guns, of course, but there are going to be some other fun goodies, that you will never see coming. Admiral Seasick's Land Dreadnought 01 by Saberwing007, on Flickr Overview. I'm debating which end is actually the front end. Admiral Seasick's Land Dreadnought 02 by Saberwing007, on Flickr Turning. The steering gear mount is not final, and will be changed to be more solid. Admiral Seasick's Land Dreadnought 03 by Saberwing007, on Flickr One of the modules. There will be another engine mounted here. I'm debating whether this module is actually the front or the back. What do you guys think? Admiral Seasick's Land Dreadnought 04 by Saberwing007, on Flickr The central module. The large turntables are going to be mounted to the front and back modules to make the frame stronger. The gear assemblies hold 2 of the 3 engines on either side. The gear assembly in the middle is for steering, and is going to be modified to go up and have a large knob gear on top. So, that's it so far. I'm going to be working on this later today, and hopefully get the frame finalized.
