Hello,

this is "The Ivory Truck" and it is meant to be the vehicle version of an ivory tower. It also is meant to be the counterpart to my Not a War Rig.

The Ivory Truck is mostly white with a little bit of black and the Not a War Rig is mostly black with a little bit of white. This creates the connection and interdependence seen in the symbol of Yin and Yang where each part bears a little bit of the other side within itself.
Since it is called the "Ivory" Truck I attempted to let its shape resemble an elephant's tusk by making it curved and pointy.
To represent the characteristics of an ivory tower I made the truck quite tall and generally tried to make it look unnecessarily extravagant and fancy. But even with all this glamourousity I wanted it to be a sturdy and powerful machine that was well capable of defending itself. That's what the turret is for.

I built this truck a long time ago when 1.13 was still a new version. There were three versions of this truck, each bigger than the one before because I lost the world twice by overriding it with another world (I really lost it when it happened the second time but by then I knew the truck's most important parts almost by heart).
After finishing the third version (this one here) I thought I could maybe, someday submit it as an entry for a contest but there never happened to be a contest with fitting theme. So, just to prevent from losing this truck again I decided to upload it now.

Enjoy!

Build a lot. You can look at what other people made to get an idea for how certain things can be represented in Minecraft. And be like a scientist who researches how things can be made in Minecraft. It pretty much is a research project that desires a beautiful or realistic (optimally both) outcome.
So, build a lot and try everything you can think of (in Minecraft) :)

Thank you very much! Yes, I tried to make it look "beautiful" since ivory is quite expensive and if you create something out of ivory, you'd make sure it looks good.
