Super Leopard Mk-XI Grav Tank

The challenge: build any kind of hover tank without using a tank kit's hull or turret - because nothing saus 'fun' like 70 tons of floating mayhem.

A little something I did a few months ago. It's on my Facebook art page "The Blaposphere". The page is public so anyone should be able to view it.

Mighty nifty! Whole lotta work for an elegantly simple design.

What a beautiful and clean design. Very nice, though I spotted the AT-AT face parts as vents, I felt the whole thing seemed completley orginal. Nice work Blappy

Happy New Year

The AT-AT parts were my nod to the ILM guys and their use of greeblies. Now their designs are greeblies! ;)

I wanted to make a TRON/Battle Zone looking tank since I was a kid. So I finally did it!
