Lego StuG III Ausf G Tank

The crew of this StuG III Ausf G tank are in for a surprise if the photographer behind this first-person image is as heavily armed as they are.

Points* go to Daniel Siskind for this intriguing shot of his wonderfully accurate StuG III tank, and you can see more on Flickr via the link above.

*Redeemable at TLCB Towers for a colouring pencil of your choice and an assortment of paper clips.

M3 Halftrack

Halftrack-M3-500w

This WWII vintage M3 Halftrack is the work of Swedish builder =DoNe= (a.k.a. Viktor). The Elves were attracted to it as, despite it only being seven studs wide, there was loads of room in the front to drive it and even more space to climb in the back and play with the machine gun. We at TLCB Towers liked this MOC because of the neat techniques that Viktor has used to get the shape right for the front of the vehicle. The use of plates with clips to make the mudguards and radiator grille works very well. There’s also some nice parts usage in the running gear inside the tracks and the Technic pins in the windscreen frame. You can see more details of this build by clicking this link to its MOCpages listing. In the meantime, can anybody lend The Lego Car Blog some scissors? An Elf has got tangled in the Halftrack’s working winch and we’re going to have to cut him out…
