The Jerboa is designed for fast, efficient field recon missions. (Custom built by the JYC).
About this creation
This here is the Jerboa. It was built largely by Captain Siesta ("Napman") of the Junkyard Coalition for use in their continuing battle against Suburbia. The Jerboa is designed to be light and fast, so as to avoid heavy enemy fire.
Side View. In addition to the compact surveillance kit, the Jerboa is armed with dual light machine guns with a 270-degree line of fire, as well as a small rocket pod. Custom decals are an integral part of the JYC. No hating!
The cockpit was my crowning achievement when building the Jerboa. I really like how it went together.
This is the surveillance kit. It contains shortwave and longwave radar, a radio seeker/jammer, and an urban wasteland survival pack.
Yes, the cockpit does open. It actually is really cramped in there, because I did so much engineering trying to slim the cockpit down as much as possible.
Wheee! Riding the hydraulically actuated canopy as it opens is a preferred method of reaching upper-story windows and ledges.
And here's Captain Siesta with his trusty machine. Thats all for now, folks!
Down with Suburbia!
Off the Fourth Wall
The Jerboa was originally built near the beginning of last school year (about October-ish). Since then it has been dropped once, stepped on twice, and utterly destroyed by Agents of the frickin' Dark Side a disgruntled sibling. Because I've had to put it back together so many times, the geometry of the cockpit got a tad messed up, but I can't figure out how. So annoying! However, it still looks great.
