M12A1 Reconnaissance Tank
After realizing I had very few parts left, I didn't think I could build anything for a little while. But I managed to build this little tank out of nearly nothing. So, this is my M12A1 Reconnaissance Tank. It small and highly maneuverable, capable of reaching a ridiculous speed of 55 miles per hour in good conditions. However, this high speed comes at a cost of very thin armor, so it must use its speed to find the enemy, get a few shots off, and get out of there. Its 57 mm gun is capable of pelting enemy positions with high rate of fire, but does little good against more heavily armored targets. That is where the artillery come in and bring the rain.
About this creation

The front armor is the thickest, along with the frontal turret. Two headlights lighten up the way at night.


The low profile gives it the ability to hide, but also decreases view range, meaning it must get close to find the enemy.


The return of mys suspension design, except in a more compact size.














Hatch opens so crew can get in and out.


57 mm gun, good for lightly armored or unarmored targets, not so good for heavy tanks.




Size compared to my armored truck.


Size compared to my M57


Well this totally depleted my resources. I cannot build another tank without new parts, and I'm not willing to lose any of my other tanks, time for that Bricklink order. Anyway, thanks for viewing and please rate and comment.

Quoting Alex Sonny Awesome! Looks kinda cute, but if I give you some advice: don't let the front poke out frm between the tracks too much and use as much SNOT on the front as possible - makes it look more realistic. But good nontheless. Also, I wish I had the pices to build so many things at once... every one of my tanks got deconstructed immediately after I posted the pictures :(
Man I should have seen the front poking out, I could have fixed that. I guess there can always be another version. And as soon as I get new parts I can try SNOT. Sorry to hear that, parts supply is one of the hardest things in Lego building. I hope that one day you get a chance to assemble your full army!
