British Mk. 1 Universal Carrier (Bren Gun Carrier)
The Universal Carrier, or Bren Gun Carrier is a common name for a family of light armoured tracked vehicles produced between 1934 and 1960 and used by commonwealth forces during WWII. I'm using a new camera, so let me know how the quality is. Thanks!
About this creation

I've tried to give the image that this beast has been geared up to the teeth. I think I've succeeded. The driver has sandbags placed around himself for extra cover.


A close-up shot of the tread detail, which reveals the type of treads I used. They're probably at least 20 years old, and hard to work with. I've used newer technic gears, though the treads still don't actually work.


Up on the front I strapped down a jerry can and rations box. I'm generally a "LEGO Purist", but I tend to use the occasional rubber band or two.


Ah, the back equipment rack. This took some doing, but I like the results. I believe this is one common way men boarded the vehicle, too. Just some random boxes, a spare wheel, and shovel. And yet another rubber band.


Alas, this last photo is quite blurry, but bear with me. It shows off my ammo crate and warhead designs (not copied, but I'm sure others have come up with them too).

GT, OVER & OUT!

Quoting Anthony Dunne Very cool llittle vehicle! I love that you used the mega old-school treads! I have a set, don't know if I will ever use them, but you have proven that even the most-dated piece can still be used well. Nice work! Keep buildng! -Anthony Dunne
LOL, they're a pain to work with; If you use them use the gears I did. I'll comment on some of your stuff as soon as I can.
