it's 90 out and i have a cold

Rebuilding Stabby Pt.2

I stripped Stabby down to the barest of the motor frame… I didn’t think I’d have to go this far down, but, the difference between the two track types is significant!

The new tracks are at the top, the old tracks are at the bottom. The new ones are 5 studs wide, 2 studs wider than the original ones… sooo… yeah, total redesign of the chassis to accommodate them.

Lookit all of the pieces I had to tear off poor stabby! :(

Wait a minute… is that a functional powertrain? … … … Why YES IT IS! A total redesign, but, it gave me opportunities to make improvements to the original design!

For example, I was able to better fit the rear access cover, it sits solidly now and doesn’t feel like it’s just bodged on.

Under the access panel, the battery box… looking at this picture, makes me think I need to flip it around… hmmmmmm. (It is about midnight here right now… sooo…)

And finally, a front view, the new servo motor is visible with a long axle coming out of it. I’m waiting for the third IR sensor to arrive so I can hook it up to its own channel for the speed controller on the remote. Stabby’s head stalk will have full 90° movement left and right, and, will also be able to incline his head. I haven’t worked out that feature yet, but, it will happen!

Yeah… I know! he looks so cold all naked down to his bare chassis! But, I left the design similar enough, the side panels I already have made SHOULD snap right back on.

Alright, those are the updates for today, I’ll post a video tomorrow of his movement! Whatcha all think?

Visual modification training guys! These are vehicles or weapons of one faction/side, designed to look like the hostile’s weapons, for training purposes.

Above, we have a Bradley or perhaps a M113 vis modded into being a BMP-2.

Here, we have a Humvee vis modded into being a BRDM-2.

Here, we have something soviet, probably a big T-72 or T-55 vis modded into pretending to be a Leopard-2. Well done, Commies! (srsly, this is pretty close!).

And here, we have something soviet vis modded into being a Leopard-1. This is really well done!

Here, we have a M109 Paladin Artillery piece, visually modified to look like a Shilka, Self Propelled Anti-Air piece.

Here, we have a pretty convincing looking M1A2 Abrams, disguising itself as a Soviet T-80 or T-90. Spooky!

Ahh, a Soviet T-64 in it’s natural habitat…Wait. That’s a poorly disguised Sheridan light tank! Good try yanks!

Finally, we have an M1A1 Abrams….Except those are Soviet Crew men? Oh how clever, its yet another visual modification. The Soviets appear to have taken a T-72, and modified the shit out of it. I like the attention to detail, with the little English “US ARMY” on the side. Except I’m fairly sure that the stars were turned from white to black, for camouflage purposes, in the late 1950′s. Well done though, all contestants!

thenextflight  asked:

I go to school in Florida but I'm currently in Michigan on break (where I have lived all y life previous) and I think it's hilarious how Floridians are freaking out about their "cold temps" while I'm sitting here in temps that are actually colder then the North Pole counting the days until I am back down south

like i’ve said about 8 million times, this is actually really cold for us and does not happen often. we’re not conditioned for cold weather. we’re conditioned for 90 degree weather with 70%+ humdity. you grew up in super cold weather so this is like nothing for you. it’s a lot for us. i’m sure in the summer, you think it’s really fucking hot (and we do too, but probably not to your degree).
