Now i don’t ever post on these forums. i only comment. which is why you never see any of my contraptions. but i pay attention. i know how to build, from learning off all you magnificent builders out there. So now i’ve decided. Why only take from the community? I should release some of my stuff. so…
Introducing… Hybrid Space / Ground Combat VTOL Hover Tank (WIP). this is a prototype
It comes with:
balancing / rotating engine pods. (vertical for hover (follows terrain), horizontal for space movement)
mouse aimed tank turret / barrel.
vertical / horizontal anti personnel turrets
parented details with non parented armor for gcombat
made with all phx and wire except the tank barrel
To do list:
actual balancing wiring
cam controller for multiplayer use
Pictures: (sorry about the low fps. I’m on my laptop while taking these pictures and my fps is always around 20-40)
v/h turret emplacements
I give some credit to the artists at rocketpunchstudios.com (http://www.rocketpunchstudios.com/artgallery/vehicles/vehicles_hovertank.jpg)
they made the concept picture in which i based my tank on.
of course, i can’t build it to exactly how it looks. it also wasn’t my intent to copy it. Our tanks are similar.
yes this is a work in progress. It is only a non functional rag doll i made with ball sockets and other things to show off its mechanics and looks. I will continue to work on this for the next few weeks so stay tuned!
c&c welcome. =]
