Chicken Tank - 3D design by ElDonaldo Sep 16, 2017

<p>A walking tank - my entry into the MyMiniFactory/Vectary design competition, in the Sci-Fi category. Perhaps it came from some distant future, or an alternate past where technology evolved differently. Maybe it's there to fight aliens in a War of the Worlds invasion, or maybe it's a Planet of the Chickens type situation.&nbsp;Hope you like it!</p><p><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-VzHw02ms8fs/WbzneuJM2TI/AAAAAAAAJHw/oSfEs6S9s1cZVsqqPVAuxHScN1AypZZFACLcBGAs/s1600/turnaround.gif">Click here for a 360 turntable view.</a>&nbsp;<a href="https://www.myminifactory.com/object/chicken-tank-45191"><br></a></p><p>The MyMiniFactory model can be found <a href="https://www.myminifactory.com/object/chicken-tank-45191">here</a>.</p><p>When printed, the model stands at around 65mm tall, more or less depending on how you pose the legs. At that size it should fit nicely in a 28mm wargame. Of course, there's no reason why you couldn't print it bigger. The turret rotates on the pivot, but you might want to add a magnet in there to help keep it in place. There are two sets of layers in the Vectary scene. The ones named in lower case show the model posed, as it would be when assembled. The ones named in all capitals are positioned for printing, and are the ones that were exported to MyMiniFactory.</p><p>The base you see in the photos is not included in the model and is 75mm in diameter. The antenna is not printed, but is a piece of extruded filament.</p>
