PF / #7470 Safeguard Class Recon Tank
My latest tank, this time with system parts as well as technic power function elements.
About this creation
First, some video....








----------------------------------------------------------

This creation started it's life out of the failiure of another creation.
I'd tried combining my #7470 set with pwer functions to make a tank, but
the thing I ended up building was RUBBISH .




The front of this failed creation.





The side.




But I pressed on with the idea, and evenually it bore fruit...

-----------------------------------------------------------

Enjoy!!



Front veiw.





Hand rails.





The interior, With space for a Minifig.





The cockpit exterior.






2X Heavy duty road wheels.






The roof, with eco-friendly solar panels...





...Which hinge to give access to the receiver and the switch for the lights.






Powerful headlights...





... & Cannons.





The rear.






The grunt, two XL motors coupled directly to the drive sprockets.





The little exterior extension of the internal lights switch.





Front, showing the high ground clearance.





The underside.








A series of photo's showing how to remove the battery pack.





Headlights.





Dazzling.

Now with a LDD file!!

Also, be sure to check out the chassis page for this creation, also with an LDD file.

That's a great little design! It should have more likes! I love the design and the video was great! One video tip! If you cut the first and last few seconds of a clip you don't get the camera shudder. Or try using self timer :) That Guy You Saw Earlier

Quoting Matthew Oh Sweet tank! At first, I just thought it was a regular tank, with an ok guy, BUT NOW, IT CAN ACTUALLY GO! This tank is amazing! The solar panels are cool, and how you used actual lights is sweet! Nice job over all! When I watched the video, it was so funny to watch it do a pop-a-wheely every time you asked it to go! That's great! And how you turned something standard and okay into this is amazing! I could go on, and on, and on about the details! KEep up the great work! :D
thanks... The wheelie was really unintentional, as i had to move the electronics backwards to make room for the driver Etc. but i really think it works well with the tank.
