Imperial Battle Tank







Inspired by Joe Johnston and Ralph McQuarrie's unused designs, I decided to create a Star Wars-ish vehicle of my own. Borrowing very much from established design elements (AT-AT and some of the expanded univerese stuff), I did some sketches to develop a basic battle tank/hover troop transport vehicle. Styrene (sheet, rod, and tube) some plumbing parts, and a big dumb cannon from a cheapo toy were used to make this beast. While perhaps not revolutionary in its design, I had fun making something that is sort of an original from conception to final product. I also want to advance from this point with slightly more challenging shapes, as well as greater and smaller scaled detailing to the interiors and exteriors.
