Alright, so I made this back in December, and when I finished it, I did not plan to post it. In fact, I found it to be very ugly, despite all the work I put into it. But recently, it came back on my mind for some reason, and I decided to render and post some pictures of it. I used bluerender, because I didn't want to wait three weeks for all the pictures to finish on pov-ray.
3610 pieces, 61 studs long (19.4 in), 24 studs wide (7.6 in.), 35 studs tall (11.1 in.), and 7.2 lb (all according to stud.io). In piece count and weight, I believe it to be my biggest.
Are you wondering where the other 1500 pieces are, since surely this brick with wheels cannot have over 3600 in there?
Well, it sure as hell isn't an empty brick. I wanted to build something with details hidden away. The vehicle has a full interior of stuff, including a large engine in front, cockpit in the middle, and mindless greebles hidden under the artillery gun in the back.
Close up of the engine and its surrounding greebles.
Open door leading inside.
Close shot of the rear. Artillery gun is center focus here. If it was real Lego, the gun would be able to rotate, but the LDD hinge tool doesn't work right with it.
Under the little flap are some detail-y bits. There are more hidden under the gun, but they are inaccessible. The LDD file is at the bottom in case anyone cares enough to find those hidden goodies themselves.
Full view of the inside, with the roof removed. There is no full windshield, just a small windscreen at the front, which is open. The side panels connected to the roof have windows, but bluerender doesn't do transparent bricks well, so they don't look to hot. There are three seats, one for the driver, one for the artillery controller (usually the commanding officer), and one for the gunner in the back.
View of the bottom. Spare wheel in the back is the only thing I haven't told you about already. The stuff in the middle here is just filler to make it look realistic.
Close up of the turret and the large artillery unit. The bulky artillery unit shoots a large laser-like particle into the air, which makes an arc (programmed by the artillery controller) and comes down on a target, incinerating it. A single laser can take out a 40-floor building, and each shot produces 12 lasers. The turret on the other hand, is just a standard machine gun. The only other armament on this beast is the two guns connected to the hood, and the spiked front bumper, which can be devastating when pushed through enemy lines at the front of this vehicle.
Cutaway shot. This is the most you'll see of the stuff under the artillery gun without downloading the file.
Now, some WIP shots:
Well, that does it for this thing. Despite my initial unwillingness to post this one, I do like how it turned out, even if the general shape is kind of ehhh. As always, like and comment.
I'll hopefully be back soon with another MOC. There's one I'm working on now with almost 3,000 pieces in it already, and nowhere near completion. (Don't worry though, it looks less like a brick)
