Why do people always make their own custom Nazi vehicles? It's weird, honoring a messed up political system. I fell on the bandwagon, though, and built up a german Warwalker, the Mark V Laufenrüstung. Don't think I'm a national socalist or nothing.
*Fluff* During the early days of World War Two, the German General Wilhem Scheißekopf order the production of an agile, verticle tank for city based warfare. His underlings scurried to work, and developed a one man armored walker.
Just like how the early aviators had problems replicating bird flight into their unsuccessful ornithopters, the replication of a human gait proved exceedingly challenging. The final engineering design cost more that it was strategically worth.
In the end only about 4000 were made, being used to moderate success in France and Russia, seeing little action elsewhere. A few remaining Laufenrüstung can be seen in tank graveyards and museums around the world.
Actually fits a minifig! Awesome.
If the mortar cannon and 2cm KwK 30 don't do the job, the top hatch opens and the pilot can use anything from a pistol to an MG42.
Blitzkreig! That's the Brickmania halftrack in the background.
Thanks for looking, I'll try to build some non Nazi, non warfare related MOCs over spring break.
The Nazi's are like the Empire from StarWars... except they actually existed... I love how boxy you built this, because with some power cables this could totally look like it was a WWII vehicle... anyway, nice build!
Hehe, General Scheißekopf :-D I think you mean Blitzkrieg or? In addition it is a good question why all people like to build MOCs about the Nazis - if Nazi zombies, or something else - it is all out of place in my opinion, espacially for me as a German.
