WOLVERINE
To quote the music group OK GO: Here it goes again. You know the drill. As a matter of fact, I don't even know why I'm still bothering to write an introduction. I think I'll stop now.
About this creation
My apologies if the following write-up seems to be lacking my typical witty sarcasm and humor. I had a VERY long week (and weekend), and I really just want to take a nap. But, I couldn't help but share this with you first. So I've left the cues in to help you write your own Matt David-style description. It's interactive!


So...here's the thingy. (insert humorous remark)


A slightly more frontal-angle shot of the thingy. (insert another humorous remark)


And the back of the thingy. (insert cliche AFOL comment)


The gun. (insert anti-clone sentiment)


The side. (insert yet a third and completely superfluous humorous remark)


The other side. (At this point, having exhausted my reserve of jokes, I will typically insert an obscure Back to the Future reference.)


Suspension. Whoopdi-do.


Full, independent suspension.


The inside. Holds four dudes. (insert another cliche inappropriate AFOL joke)


Showing off all moving parts: doors, hatch, and TRUE quad-steer. I always felt like I cheated a bit with the Accipiter's "quad-steer" system. You see, on that older system, I had two independent truck assemblies that rotated the paired wheels in opposing directions, which threw the opposing wheels (left and right in the front, and left and right in the back) onto different axis of motion. In reality, this system would not be plausible, for the force required to actually turn those independent trucks would be unimaginable-particularly under the immense weight of the turret. Here, all four wheel pivot on the same vertical axis, making this system require a much more reasonable amount of torque to execute a turn. Still reading? Impressive, young one.

BONUS------------------------


"Stu, I meant we drive on the right side of the road...as in the right-hand side. I didn't mean that the left side was the correct side to drive on.

Sorry about not commenting sooner. Whoa, this...this..is a wonderful masterpiece! You have everything right, from the steering and the suspension to the greebles and fine details. If Chris Phipson made military stuff, you would defiantly win. Oh yeah, I just said that.

1.) Because I'm lazy and I don't have access to LDD or LDraw. 2.) Microsoft Publisher or Photoshop, depending on how much effort I want to put into it. Although, the same can be achieved through Microsoft Word.

Quoting Jonathan Ladner Love it! but i have a question, how do you do suspension like that? :o
Magic. But, if you're not lucky enough to be a wizard, somewhere down the thread is a link to photos that explain the whole system.

Quoting Bernardo BLITZ Silva does it has an actual spring suspension hidden or just pure mechanics?
It doesn't use a spring, but it is fully-functional. It uses a rubber-band and a cradle hinge (among other specialized parts) http://s809.photobucket.com/albums/zz12/LEGOPhotostring/

I guess some days we really aint in the mood for jokes, unless using the *insert here* strategy... Looks bulky and aggressive, yet also maneuverable. Amazing job with the suspension, does it has an actual spring suspension hidden or just pure mechanics?

Alright, alright. I'll come clean. It's a free font that I found somewhere on the interweb (can't remember the particular spot). Type "free fonts" into the search engine of your choice, and you can end up spending a good half-day clicking, searching, and downloading.

i love the dimentions on that car i can see that took a while to make. i like the interior but i think you should make a rocket launcher turret on the back as a secondary option and id like a more closer shot on the inside of the vehicle otherwise this is one of he best cars ive seen so far, you should be proud of your self. check this out: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/206246

Aha, word play. You are progressing well my evil-yet-tired disciple. Do you know why the English do drive on the left side of the road? I believe it dates back to medieval times, when approaching someone on horseback you wanted your sword hand towards them (had to be the right, left = sinister)so you could hack them into messy lumps if the need arose. So the rest of the world have it wrong - pacifist hippies. What? Oh, the MOC, right. It looks like the Hummer who got bullied at school, went away and trained under a hummer sensei and the 4x4 equivalent of Mr. T, came back at the 10-year off-road school reunion and kicked a great deal of butt before making off with a cute suzuki rhino and a keg of deisel. When I have the time I think I need to be getting on with Somalian pirate ninjas so MA have some fodder to crush.

Quoting Patrick »Packie« Chambers The underside and suspension appears to take influence from the MRAP (intentional or just my imagination).
Clearly my plan from the beginning. And by that, I mean a complete cosmic accident. But I thought "MRAP" when I looked at it, too.
Quoting Patrick »Packie« Chambers Now, from a technical standpoint, I can't see this working well without some modifications.
Yeah. For one, plastic makes for poor armor. :-)
Quoting Patrick »Packie« Chambers Visibility is key in a light strike vehicle and there are no view holes.
Light? Packie, my friend. You've followed my creations for a while. You know "light" isn't in my vocabulary.
Quoting Patrick »Packie« Chambers Also, while that roof hatch looks great, it obstructs the cannon (also sweet looking) when raised.
At first, I thought the same thing. But then I realized something: The only time the hatch would be open would be when a soldier was standing up through it. That being the case, we wouldn't want the double-barreled .50 cal. firing in that direction anyway.
Quoting Patrick »Packie« Chambers HOWEVER, this is merely knit-picking. A sci-fi piece of hardware like this doesn't need to be functional. It needs to be bad-ass. It is this category where you truly delivered. Nice work. Peace ~ Packie
