LAV-25A2

The LAV-25A2 is an 8-wheeled Light Armored Vehicle currently in use with the USMC. The vehicle is the backbone of the Marine Corps' Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalions.

 

After I started this little project of mine sometime in late June, I'm happy and relieved to say, it's finally done.

    Very good build !! I see very interesting details. The turret is fantastic !!
  • Pierre-Félix So 6y

    Very good !

    LAV-25. Great choice. ;)

    I love everything about it. I think this is the first actual MOC that I've seen from you, and it has blown my socks off.
  • Aleksander Stein PRO 6y

    This is sweet, brilliant job! I'll echo everyone else about the details and greebles, great attention to both, and you've got a very nice overall shape going here as well. You may be pushing the limit of minifig scale a bit (even the slightly oversized "functional minifig scale"), but that's merely a minor nitpick.

    This is well worth the several month long wait for it. Everything on this beast looks excellent, the attention to detail is incredible.
  • TediousDestroyer 6y

    Well I have watched this from the baby stage, in fact I was probably the first to know and I have to say, this is impressive. Incredibly impressive...
    Now I suppose Texas can purchase a few?

    You've really outdone yourself! Best LAV-25 I've ever seen, in fact I'd say it's the best in this class of vehicle I've seen in a long time. The shape is spot on and the details are nice to look at. Great job.

    Many thanks to everyone.

    @magnus: I do agree that the tires aren't that accurate, but I felt they were the best choice out of the current TLG tires.

    @stgeorg6: Thanks. I got a lot of inspiration from your Stryker.

    @ Esau: I had a few mini-scale ships for a group, but I suppose this could be considered a first MOC, in certain contexts.

    @Aleks: It is indeed on the large side, especially when I put a minifig next to it. I was thinking about making it 10 wide and a bit smaller overall, but that didn't allow me to get all of the details and functionality I wanted.


    Anyway, I fixed the comment/note settings on all of the other pictures, as flickr had them at "Only you" for some reason.

    That *I've* seen from you.

    Also, the only thing I don't like on this is the net at the front. I love the hatch though.
  • TediousDestroyer 6y

    I think that the net adds detail to the LAV.
  • Jacob Clayton 6y

    What does it do?
  • TediousDestroyer 6y

    I've seen some people us it as barbed wire. But, does everything on a LEGO vehicle have to have a purpose?
  • Jacob Clayton 6y

    Yes.
  • Jake 6y

    It could possibly be concertina wire or that netting that gets caught up in cars' tires for roadblocks, or a netting for camouflage to be put over top of.
  • General Frostingface 6y

    Dawg!
  • Chandler Parker PRO 6y

  • Macho_Man_2000 6y

    Awesome.
  • Kitten Krieger 6y

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Lego Iraq and Afghanistan , and we'd love to have this added to the group!
  • Lego Junkie PRO 5y

    Congrats on winning the contest!
    This looks great.
