Hello,

this is NASA's crawler transporter used for carrying spacecraft from the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) to the launch pad.
Rockets and space shuttles get assebled on the Mobile Launch Platform (MLP), which then is carryied by the crawler transporter.
The crawler transporter weighs 2721 tonnes and is able to lift three times its own mass which equals 8164 tonnes.
It is propelled by 8 tracks being connected by hydraulic cylinders to the vehicle chassis. This allows for independant height adjustment of each corner of the vehicle. Height adjustment is needed when the transporter crawls up the ramp to the launch pad and the rocket is meant to stand upright.
There are two control cabins, one for each direction of movement.
When loaded, the maximum speed is at 1.6 km/h (1 mph) when unloaded 3.2 km/h (2 mph). So, you can easily keep up to it simply by walking.
In total there are 2 such crawlers in the world and they are after bucket wheel excavators the second largest vehicles ever built.
They were manufactured by the Marion Power Shovel Company which used to make steampowered excavators like the Marion Steam Shovel.

Enjoy!
Progress100% complete

Yep, that Mobile Base Crawler you're referring to originally was a crawler transporter like this one, hence the similarity ^^

Those two things are definitely too big for me xD
I only make such huge builds for special occasions, mostly contests, but in general not very often.

That`s really cool...And now a little question. Are you going to build buildings in the style of Dieselpunk?

Interesting you ask!
Yes, I actually already made some.
The first one was a Dieselpunk Stable because I thought a normal (probably medieval) stable would be too boring. This and The Last Man on Earth are the only immobile dieselpunk structures.
The rest are vehicles such as a Dieselpunk Snow Vehicle, a Dieselpunk Tram, a Dieselpunk Car, an Antarctic Snow Cruiser and a Hot Rod Santa Sleigh.
Also, since you seem to be interested in the visuals of Fallout, I'd recommend the Atompunk Tank Truck because it features this distinctive look Fallout vehicles have.

If there is a specific vehicle you'd like me to make show me an image of it and I will decide if I am going to build it ^^

The hovering trains are nice, I think I am going to make one of them. Even have the images you sent (of the trains) in my gallery. I hate ships, though, so I'm not going to make that.
But I really like the last image of the land steam train. I've got another image from a different angle saved in my gallery. There already were times when I thought about building it. I'm gonna make it as well.

1.25:1 approximately. Maybe 1.3:1. I made it a little bit bigger than 1:1 so that it fits with my cars and trucks which also are a little bit bigger than 1:1.

It's on the Wellandel server which currently is in the buildup phase and I am a builder there. Unfortunately, you can't join until it gets public :/

OH there you go ! That's the REAL big boy. And the crawlers had a BIG upgrade in 2003. But the current upgrades won’t improve its speed or gas mileage at all: one mile an hour and 32 feet to the gallon.
The two crawler-transporters were added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 21, 2000.
NICELY DONE, LOOKS GREAT

Yeah, during the upgrades in 2003 the lifting capacity was increased for one crawler to be able to carry the new SLS rockets. But it still guzzles immense amounts of fuel xD
Such a crazy machine...
