LAV-25A2

Newer Older

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  10. TediousDestroyer [deleted] 64 months ago | reply

    I think that the net adds detail to the LAV.

  11. Ésau [deleted] 64 months ago | reply

    What does it do?

  12. TediousDestroyer [deleted] 64 months ago | reply

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

  13. Ésau [deleted] 64 months ago | reply

    Yes.

  14. ShôçkAñdAwé 64 months ago | reply

    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.
