The Solstice Mobile Cannon was never uploaded to the DbM gallery, so I've decided to upload it here. It made use of the 180mm Sledgehammer Cannons made by chunkblaster.
About this creation
Class: Mobile Cannon Vehicle
Role: Fly-by massive destruction
Max Speed: 80 M/H
The Solstice is favored by expert pilots and novices alike because of its speed and size.
The base of the Solstice has incandescent headlights for the occasional night battle. The huge seven foot diameter wheels are all on separate motors, allowing the Solstice to turn 360 degrees in place.

Just the mid-seccion of the gun.
The pilot has only one job: aiming the massive gun. The vehicle is piloted off site at a secure bunker.
The clasp holding the main gun to the swivel is reinforced with titanium and teflon fibers.
Thanks to all three of you for comments! I agree with all your ideas, especially the cockpit one. This was a bored afternoon project (I'm sure all of you have had those before) so I wasn't exactly thinking clearly. Thanks again, and congrats on finally making it out of DbM! I've been trying to make this happen for a really long time!
Whoah! That thing is epic! I agree with chunk and ED about the cockpit, however also feel that it would look better with another set of wheels, just to make it more stable when firing.
Keep on Brickin'!
Well done with the Sledgehammer, I never got to use it. :(
Did you upload this three times or something? MOCpages sent me the email to say that you uploaded it three times over.
I agree with chunk about the cockpit though. Just an idea, but what about modifying the base so that you can put a CBMC Classic cockpit module on instead.
Dude I'm lovin the high res screen shots! I just figured out how to turn up the resolution on mine so all my new uploads will be in High res. Eventually I'll reupload the TAM-X stalwart and Jester in high res but not right away. And nice use of the sledgehammer, but I feel like the pilot could be more protected.
