This weekend I built and painted the Khurasan APC. Given its stunning resemblance to the M577 APC from the 1986 movie Aliens I used the fanbase info for the painting. Figures in the picture below are from GaleForce9's 2020 board game Aliens.
To keep all the moving parts moving I magnetized the wheels, gun turrets and door.
Another baffling design choice is that the APC has only one entry/exit door and a sliding door at that, of which the mechanism is placed on the outside. A few lucky hits on the rails and the crew is trapped inside the APC with no other way to get out....
The four wheels are independently driven by one engine each. That's 4 times the chance on crippling engine failure compared to a classic one-engine vehicle. Plus it remains a mystery how Ripley could break the transaxle in a vehicle that doesn't need one.
I am clearly overthinking things 😂
