Sadly brickshelf requires a mod review and manually make things public... perhaps I should've waited. Sorry.

Thanks for posting the LDD files. I reviewed them this weekend and built one of the Humvee's. Was not really satisfied with it's design. Uses way too many uncommon parts like 2x3 SNOT plates, 1x3 plates and SNOT plates, travis bricks, etc. Even with my large Lego collection I didn't have enough parts to make more than a couple. Redesigned it to use 2x4s, 1x4s, and normal wheel/axle assemblies. I think it turned out well and it uses common parts!

This is quite inspiring...
I am all for mechas, but probably because of my childhood interests I seem to still show a little more interest in the vehicles, and this board seems much unloved compared to the one for frames.
I was actually thinking of adding a super-heavy tank (a la 40k) and a mobile scout car, and this humvee design I am sure I can at least use as general guideline for the car, and some of the other stuff in that blog post will help for a tank too.

I know this is a massive necro, but I took a crack at these on my blog.

That's an excellent "single picture reference"!

I could see myself staring at it for hours!

Inspired by zi zy's recent vehicle dump, I started by repro'ing a couple trucks; I know I'm not 100% on some of the parts but they're pretty close. LDD doesn't have the new grill guard or the bumper holder technic bricks and while think I have the parts right on the front wheels of the tan truck, the alignment is off a little.

Then I started mod'ing and ended up with this truck.

Here's the LDD file with my repro's and the truck I made if you want to take a look. If you figure out something I got wrong, let me know.

zi zy posted a detail pick of one of the jeeps/humvees from his vehicle bomb. I took a shot at sussing it out.

Image

I'm pretty condifident in the body and the front wheels, but I know the rear wheels are totally wrong. My version has the wheels in the right place, but it's wrong.

I added this to the LDD file if you want to take a look. If you can sort out that rearend, let me know!

zi zy's little truck has tons of mod possibilities. I went full safari mode with this one; lots of little details.

I spent some time trying to repro zi zy's amazing APC. I'm sure the insides are all wrong, but all the pieces on the outside ended up in the right places.

Really nice!

If it works, it's not "wrong", just different!
