An update for my 4-wide tumbler with a new front, new flaps on the rear end and a camouflage version.
After some other projects now it’s time for a 4-wide, again. I already finished an intermediate version in MOCtober but then I was busy with NnoVVember, the CS Pocket Money Contest and some more models that had been waiting to be posted…
It was very hard to find all the needed parts in tan or reddish brown. I made seven (!) BrickLink orders until I had all of the parts I needed. The most difficult parts to get were the tan side panels. I could have bought a small LEGO set for the money I paid for these. But they look so cool! ;-))
Some changes on the front: The Tumbler now has the double front windows and the “nose” section looking a lot more like the original. I had the idea to use the large tile from Chris Rogers’ Tumbler. His Tumbler is bigger, but the look is very similar.
And a little change on the rear end: The hinge plates I used for the 1×2 flaps on the previous versions didn’t exist in tan or brown, so I looked for a new way to build them. The new ones are even more flexible, they now can tilt and turn a few degrees.
