6X6 Armored Car Tech Info by dangeruss 6X6 Armored Car Tech Info by dangeruss
Based on concept art by Malaveldt : [link]

Mike has become my favorite conceptual artist lately. His ideas and art are very inspiring. I wrote him with a request to recreate some of his stuff in 3D and received his blessing, so here's the first collaborative work. This is a "retro-future" style armored vehicle. Some people term this style as "Skortch", where new concepts are fashioned from older hardware in a future where supplies are limited and recycling technology is a must.

Modeled, textured and rendered over a 4 day period using Mike's sketch as a guide with details from my own imagination and research of WWII and contemporary armor.

A realistic environment version can be found here: [link]

This is amazing, great work.  Do you still have the file?  Do you think you would be able to send me an *.stl or upload it to www.solidoodles.com so I can 3D print it!?  I can send you one...

This would not be suitable for 3D printing. There are too many intersecting and unsupported objects.  It would fail spectacularly.

Amazing, though such armament would be more useful on a heavily armored tank :)

I think this would be a lot cooler if the cannon was a shell-firing cannon (possibly a mini-thermonuclear type round? Like Arny's power cells from Terminator 3). Something that, while futuristic-y, would look more realistic with the rest of the vehicle (say, a longer, Sherman-esque cannon. Shorter than a normal tank's barrel, but long enough to fit with the rest of the vehicle).

Otherwise, very neat model, I'd love to see something like this in a video game (perhaps an addition to Battlefield 2142? This would fit in perfectly!)
