IG-227 Hailfire-class droid tank
About this creation



I had a pretty clear vision of how I wanted this vehicle to look in Lego form.
The first and most challenging thing to figure out was the wheel rings, because there was several criteria’s which had to be met.

First, I wanted the wheels to be able to spin, which means the surface had to be well rounded and as smooth as possible.
Although it won’t be rolling around too well, at least it’s a bit more interesting than static wheels.
Next the design had to be strong enough to hold the entire weight of the model and also very thin to preserve movie accuracy.

A lot of prototyping was done until I found the right solution: 2x3 Plates interweaving between round 1x1 plates, which has enough tolerance to bend and create a curve to form a ring with the right dimensions.
Due to the nature of this design there is a small amount of flex but the rings holds their shape well enough for the purpose of this model.
The rest of the model was relatively straight forward to build.

After working on and off the project for 2 months, I was able to wrap up this one.

MOC features:
• Highly accurate design.
• Minifig scale.
• 1093 parts.
• Total parts price 165 USD. (Bricklink)
• The wheels can spin.
• Adjustable laser cannon.
• Missile pods can pivot.

This is really well designed. A proper system Hailfire droid. If I didn't have the technic one and this was a set, I'd definitely get one, although I am curious if the wheels would be sturdy enough. There is one big problem I have, and that is with your lighting, it is a bit dark. I'd go for either more light, or a different color background.

I'm guessing the next one to be one of the following: Droid gunship, spider droid, or a corporate alliance tank droid. Also great build!
