Homemade Lego Advent Calendar 2015: Day 6 - Turret

The story behind the Homemade Lego Advent Calendar: We opted not to buy the Dude a Lego Advent Calendar for the past few years. The Dude was quite amenable, countering with: "Ok, then you have to build me something every day until Christmas." Challenge accepted! This is the series of daily posts, cataloguing my builds.

Having a kid who's been into war-based play for years means that I sometimes bite the bullet (ha) and incorporate some weapons into my builds. This turret is an original build, and its best feature is that it spins around so the person operating the controls can shoot in any direction. Naturally, it's is operated by computer because tech. :)

Maybe it's all the Fall Out Boy the Dude's been playing recently, but when I look at this I think, Rat-a-tat-tat-rat-a-tat-tat! :)

See you tomorrow!
