I'm with Ystreak on this. It's...ok, I guess. I'm think the underlying issue is that a large part of the Imperial (and by extension, SM) aesthetic is chunky-ass, screw-you aerodynamics, mahoosive chunk of metal style tanks. As soon as the tracks come off you have these warring necessities of "looks like it should fly" and "big, solid and heavy". Very hard to square that circle, unfortunately.


Still better than the Taurox, though.

Of course, better than "the vehicle whose exhaust pipes vent into the crew compartment" is a mighty low bar. :lol:

If you're willing to spend more money and put in the effort to convert it, the IG Short Bus can look slightly less dreadful.

Take a hammer and saw to it, put it back together with BIGGER Exhaust pipes and paint it red, it would look just fine!
