Ducktank

Behold, a follow-up to my popular Mecha Mouse model from a few months ago! Donald Duck's new mechanized battle vehicle is clearly inspired by the RX-75 Guntank from the 0079 Mobile Suit Gundam series, notably with the dual Gatling gun arms and triangular tank treads.

 

This was conceptualized shortly after the creation of Mecha Mouse in spring 2017, but was put on the backburner over the summer. One of the particular major obstacles was obtaining orange tank treads and wheels.

 

Unfortunately, the torso and head are unable to rotate, despite early engineering tests. I attempted to use SNOT (studs not on top) inside the torso and bottom units to have Technic friction pins for swiveling movement; I wasn't able to achieve this in time.
