M70 "Alien" MBT
Obviously based on the M60 Patton, The M70 got it's nickname from the unusual shape of the turret resembling the head of a Metamorph. The tank features a newly adopted suspension system with six roadwheels and return rollers (a first in my tank series). The turret has a big overhang at the back where the ammo storage is located and a single hatch on top (the commander's). The gun is an uprated high-velocity 105 mm rifled gun fit with a thermal sleeve.
About this creation


I'm sorry for the inconsistency with the roadwheels, but I have max 6 pieces of the same wheel... I'll order some if the need arises.


also the turret shape, notice how it extends waaay back over the engine compartment.













the suspension. not as good as on the Mark II, but still pretty functional...














also not as much ground clearance as the Mk II, but it looks somewhat awesomer from the front.






Hope you liked it!

EDIT As requested, here are pictures of the whole suspension system. it is modular, it just pops onto the bottom of the chasis. I'll be using such systems from now on.






teaser: self-propelled artillery version coming soon!

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 very cool tank Alex! I love that you show the suspension in detail, I think you owe yourself a couple of kits to get more parts, ordering by the parts is expensive, some stores liquidate kits, it s much cheaper, there is always uses for extra parts, and you spend so much time making tanks, they should reflect your effort on them, I can t wait until you show a one colored uniform piece, and your artillery!
I appreciate it! But the problem is, I'm not big on money right now, in january I bought an NXT kit and that took a chunk out of my wallet. But I have a large box of unsorted legos in the basement and I filter through them to find pieces I need.
