Fixed the thread prefix for you. If you could get a couple of clearer pics of the WIP, it might spur some feedback. Right now, it's hard to tell what's happening.

Best of luck.

Yes, new pics. Maybe use a flash or try to get a little better lighting. That should help with images being blurry.

Looks like an awesome start. Fun project!

ok, here are some better pics, as i said befor the back is not set in stone, the blue thrusters will have lights in them,. and the mouth has lights as well. the black thruster are only for show,.and advice or critiques are welcomed before it is fiberglassed.

it started out a mod, but has quickly become a scratch item, you have tro rememberthe original toys was only what 10 inches long and 6 inches wide maybe, this is 18 inches long and 11 inches wide. just when i think i have it i have to start all over again.

its actually a robot base system from lynxmotion.. the whole back section is the track system, thats how its will be remote controlled. see the links for info, if you click on teh deminsions tab at the bottom, it will show you how biug they are and it might put in perpective how big the tank is.. You got any suggestions or somthing you think could be better'?
