Based on the M3 halftrack. Halftrack used to have wheels on front for the handling like a car and the tracks to cross rough terrain.

Made for the Pixelopolis vehicle challenge.

Reminds me of Back To The Future, because of the folding wheels.

Can you build one for me?? :p
Nice smooth animation :) but I think it could be in low position longer..

Awesome work. Lovely style, works incredibly well with the palette with a wonderfully smooth animations. Superbly done.

The animation is really nice and smooth, fun to look at.

I think i remember this one, i like it.  Yes, a bump might help it, but i think its pretty neet as it is.  The only thing i would suggest would be a slight shine to some parts to reinforce the metalic idea, even painted trucks have a bit more shine than youve got at the moment

(just as a side note, all 'halftracks' have wheels on the front and tracks on the back, thats where the name comes from.  if theres a modern version without wheels and someone is calling it a halftrack, they are wrong)

Very nice, Brian.  Could use a few more animation details, but you got the main mechanical aspects perfect.

hoho cool idea ...

  I totally agree with you there sedgemonkey :).  By bounce do you mean like the truck is going over a bump in the road? That's what I would recomend.  Erm.., maybe some smoke coming out of the pipe thingy would look nice.  Looks great, keep it up :).

I forgot about that challenge. I'll have to go take a peak. 

The metal has a nice worn look and the animation looks tight -- very smooth. A little bounce might help a little to give it that "in motion" feel.
