Will Someone Please Build A Hippy Van!

Lego Rusich Tank TransporterWhat is it with you lot? All the Elves are finding on MOCpages, Flickr and Brickshelf are machines of death. And we’ve stopped them watching war movies so we know it’s not TV’s fault. This particular one is a KZKT Rusich Tank Transporter made by Sariel, and it’s a follow-up to his previous K2 Black Panther Tank. It’s truly humongous too; we’ve cut the tank-transporting trailer out of this post so it fits on the page! See the full model on MOCpages here.

And will someone please build something more peaceful! Preferably with swirly paint on the outside and hippies on the inside.

I’m So Ronery

K2 Black Panther Tank

Ready for the DMZ

Sariel is back with a bang! This is his latest project, a ridiculously complicated – and brilliant – replica of the most advanced tank in the world; the South Korean K2 Black Panther. Costing $8.5 million each, making it the most expensive tank in the world, the K2 features lazer lock-on weapons, 55 calibre smoothbore gun and an incredible In-Arm Suspension design which allows the tank to sit, stand or kneel depending upon the terrain.

Sariel has recreated it all (apart from the lazer lock-on, although he’ll probably manage that soon) and details the build fully at his blog, sariel.pl.

Sariel’s K2 Black Panther in Lego

Sadly the situation in the Korean Peninsula is looking increasingly unstable, as the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea, who looked on the verge of softening their stance, seem to have returned to their isolated and antagonistic state of mind*. With nuclear weapons on one side of the DMZ, and K2 Black Panthers on the other, we’re just pleased The Lego Car Blog office is a long, long way from it all.
