One I prepared earlier

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.

I know this violates the "no tank hull" rule, but I figured I'd post it anyway. I posted it a few years ago but here it is again:

Another angle\

1/35 Trumpeter S-103, scratchbuilt barrel, parts from everything from a 1/24 Votoms kit to 1/24 car shocks and mufflers. I really need to take some better pics of this.

Not bad, not bad at all. I really like the big fans on the side.

Dig the avatar, too.

They SHOULD be knackered! Don't believe me? Get thee to You Tube and see for yourself.
There is a solution to every problem. Sometimes it's just C4.

Fine. I got an Avatar. Happy?

DISQUALIFIED!







:P Just givin ya some stuff. I know you didnt build it for the challenge. Ill let it pass for inspiration to others and actually a good example of what not to do for this challenge.

The Trumpeter S tank is quite recognizeable. Other than that though it looks cool and is well done.

That's what I had intended in the first place: that it should provide some inspiration.

Well, the question is moot anyway -- the thing is currently undergoing a major rebuild/rethink.
