Fortress Truck
I wanted to build something steampunky, but already, I'm limited with the available bricks... (great, no brownish parts)... But I can't let an idea slip away. Anyway, I put together this steam-powered monster truck with a slight touch of medieval.
About this creation
This is Bubba.



Bubba: "Ey."

We do not have a steampunk pilot so we settled for a Mars Mission veteran who was recently layed off. He seems to fit the bill - gruff-looking, space suit in place of pilot outfit, painted-on flight goggles...




Bubba: "How do you get on this behemoth?!?"




Bubba: "Great. No ladder... &%@#$@!!!"




Bubba: "... and how do you turn it on? This thing better fly."

It appears our driver is a bit P.O.'ed. Oh well...



*** A WALK AROUND THE FORTRESS TRUCK ***



Behind the driver are two huge boilers.






Vertical trusses hold up the heavy and bulky steam engine system in the rear.












*** A CLOSER LOOK ***



The cockpit - 3 steering wheels and way too much gauges and indicators.




All-terrain Brickstone� Castle Seige Series� tires.




Pressure Relief Valve on the front.




Compact Steam Turbine




Steam Compressor




Steam Condenser




Back-up Pressure Vessels




Thinga-ma-greeblies on the top.




A view from below ... all-wheel steering!

Dang that is some clever use of parts. If this is what you can build with a limited supply, than I am really looking forward to what you can do when the collection grows. Lee.

I was scrolling through the pictures, when the compact steam turbine screamed "Ingenious part usage!" I love the way you've included all the different parts of a steam engine, it really adds to the realism. Besides, who doesn't want to drive a monster truck with three steering wheels! ;)

That's really nice for a steampunk car! You did a good use of the supports and the hoses. With the proper colours, it would be perfect!

Oh waw! that's one weird creation in a very cool way, I agree with the comment below; an unusual part usage over here, great steering system, great cabin, great details all over... all in all really a fantastic creation... very well done. BTW thanks a lot for ALL your nice comments and compliments; its very much appreciated, and yes..having a little race wouldn't kill ;)

Very fun! Nice non-traditional use of parts. (I love the saws up top.) And the comments are laugh out loud funny. Poor Bubba!
