An MOC done over the weekend by accident as the AT-AT was destroyed during the clean up of my sons' rooms. Thrown into the box and later that night I started to assemble it back into shape. Thought about doing an alternate model for it and the result was the Ground eNforcer Armored Transport (http://www.acpinlac.com/LegoGNAT.html). There were only two extra pieces that I had to scrounge up for from the TIE Fighter & Y-Wing set which I had to use for the wheels.

Cool build, but how did you get the vehicle to stay upright on just those radar-dish wheels? My experience is that they'd rather pop off than stay on.

The wheels are reinforced by the round brick, then attached to the body through the hinges and they stay on quite well. You can see them in the undercarriage in the front (http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/ACPin/ACPin-Star-Wars-MOCs/SW-GNAT/gnat-c01-28.jpg) and back (http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/ACPin/ACPin-Star-Wars-MOCs/SW-GNAT/gnat-c07-32.jpg) view pics. It's when you try to get it rolling that they will eventually fall off. The main reason is that I used only the parts from the walker. The technic pins can easily be changed to different ones that have friction and will keep the wheels on.


As always very well done!
Thanks! :cool:

Oh, ok, I see what you did, it's a variation on how the wheels are attached to the Kaadu set's ammo wagon (which has pretty much the same problem as you describe with its radar dish wheels ;)). Very neat! :cool:

That's cool and it makes sense. With the legs destroyed in battle the rebels would have to add wheels to them.
