(2012-11-05) EDF - Ferret LDD
inspired by the work of Evan Constantine.
About this creation
Shown are two versions (the lighter green is the one included in the LDD file).

Differences between each other first:

The lighter green model (for ease of description I'll call "the taller one") came first. This was an attempt to retro-engineer the design by Evan Constantine, and changed very little other than a couple of minor cosmetic additions (such as the number places front and rear, the tail "lights" and adding a psuedo-axel underneath.

One addition however I did add which was not in the original and changed the shape dramatically, was the addition of a trapezoidal plate under the cockpit at the front.

The Second, darker green design (the shorter one) came second. It is partly some new ideas I had while creating the first, and partly resulting from feedback.

The colour was changed to more of a US Army green, I removed the extra plates, allowing the cockpit to sit on the chasis, giving it a much lower stance. The circular plate on top of the cockpit was replaced by a 1x2 plate with one stud, thus allowing the gun to swivel, I filled in the studs behind with a 1x2 grill plate.

Finally, I replaced the cockpit window with a frame piece, and added some black 1x1 "cheese wedges" to give the impression of a cockpit, and to give it a slightly more "roll cage" feel, closer to an actual jeep.

Both designs lack the "spare" in the well at the back. I haven't the foggiest notion how Evan achieved this and I'm struggling to replicate it in LDD. Suggestions welcome.



































Based on HRE-1 Decurion by Evan Constantine

Looks like Evan has left MOCpages, that's a shame.

Quoting Evan Constantine Wow, very cool. i agree with Michael Rutheford that the addition to the undercarriage is outstanding, and I've modified my own to match. The roll-cage is also a nice option. Thanks for making this variant! Oh, and the spare tire is held in place by pushing the round plates in the center, in between the four studs on the back-deck. Hope that helps!
Thanks, yes it does help. I think I might use that technique next time I do a micro scale autobot.

Nice changes! Seems like we were thinking the same for some parts. I'm uploading my version(s) soon, but I made some other variants as well.

Quoting Michael Rutherford Ah, cool drive shaft down underneath! Very good detail in such a tiny build. I also like the roll cage. And again, it really ramps up the level of detail in a tiny MOC. Attack!
Thanks Michael.
