Armored shell (truck) and Cocoon (aa/turret) . Mission: Scrap Convoy
---Ok you two, here are your orders. We need more resources and we are running dangerously low. You two are to protect a convoy carrying scrap metal but itís not that easy. The sector is highly dangerous. Many ships and vehicles lay waste here after fights long ago. The reason so much of this metal is here is because of radiation leaks from these old crafts, the road is littered with junk, and the ground has craters from weapon explosions and falling ships. Now I know this truck is a tight squeeze but believe me, you will thank us later. On back, we attached a modify aa/ turret that we were able to steal though we did modify it with our own scrap so it will at least blend in. We added some new armor around the front and on the turret. Some of this armor will be able to survive in places of high radiation but it has its limits. Now I know the truck is built of most scrap anyways so it gives quite a good reason for this convoy. Letís just say if all parts on this thing match, then hell it wouldnít be scrap. If anything goes wrong, you have two rifles. First one is in the driverís seat and the other is strapped on the outer back of the seat. Get this done quick and clean but chances are, this wonít be quick and far from clean. Here are your orders, the convoy will start two days from now so get prepared.--- Transmission Over
Now this is my first attempt at a vehicle with suspension. It was a really fun build and made me think hard to get it right. Iíll admit there were times I wanted just demolish this truck by many ways. I would like to thank Andrew Somers for the suspension design. Itís funny, I didnít have enough LEGO rubber bands for the style I was looking at and had to improvise by use two larger ones, which from there the forced me to build the truck with four wheels in back to work. Iím glad my PLAGUES idea uses scrap metal to make their vehicles and machines since it allows you to do some mixed colors but the colors have to be black or greyish and the ability to use many small parts for greebling. I would also like to say that this is my first serious attempt at greebling and I hope it looks good. In the beginning, this truck was much smaller and a lot thinner. It didnít seem to look so good so I started to use greebling to make it more buff and from there, it grew larger and larger. The turret above started out to be for a different moc I shall soon be posting, and it is a boat. It was meant to be an AA gun on the boat but was too large. Most of the outer of it had more pieces put on to it so that it looks like it can take heavy damage but keep the gunner protected. The cockpit/ driverís seat has a hatch on in from the top because I spent so many hours trying to build door that I gave up and seeing it had become disproportional to the rest of the vehicle, I added a great amount of armor. I hope you enjoy the truck and at the very bottom of this post is a little teaser of one of my LARGEST creations and shall post a teaser a moc for my other vehicles Iím posting (as in I will be posting new vehicles and each page will have another teaser).
Here is a quick look at the Cocoon (aa/ turret) that goes on the back.
