so I'm gonna make a warthog for my senior project in High School. I was looking at the pic with the four warthogs lined up... user posted imageand I decided that I was gonna take the basic warthog and take of the gun :'( (so I can drive it to school) and give it the gullwing doors from the snow one (so it's not as easy to steal...) then I was looking at the troop carrier (the one on the far right) and thought about how badass the canvas covered rollbar would look on the snow warthog if you just made the roofline flush then a 90 degree drop at the back. if anyone has suggestions, comments or questions post them here... I'll post actual pics of the construction as work progresses... but I can't start work until this summer as I am only a Junior.

heh damn u got senoir projects too ic

i like the idea, but that will take a LONG time

i have to do 15 hrs job shadowing and/or make something, we get more info next week on what to do specifically
but right now it sux for me as i doubt any programming firm nearby will let me shadow one of their programmers(or slap me with a heavy NDA or contract saying i cant program for x years)

and well making a program is quite difficult, but if i had a team of people i could prolly make a good game or some other program in about a month's time

yeah... sr project's suck... but this is a good excuse to destroy a car and make a warthog. as for time... it'll take about a year... which is why I want to start this summer as that is the earliest we can start senior projects (I'm still a Junior) but I want to make this very detailed... like adding the winch and wheels and if time and money allow... 4 wheel steering. but probably not... I'll post videos too.

They actually make you do shit for your Senior year? The most I really had to do was, well....nothing really. Just show up.

With enough time, money, patience, and resources, that would make one hell of a project.

yea and my skool is fuckin cheap, instead of hiring janitors to clean shit, they send the detention kids to do it(they have 2 hour detentions on weekdays, and 4 hour detentions on saturday mad.gif)

I can't find the link right now, but you could always wait for that new concept car to finish. The one that looks ALOT like the warthog (only styling cool.gif ) and then just say you built it rolleyes.gif laugh.gif

Only problem is that's a concept which may never see the light of day as production vehicle.
But who knows, they've (car companies) produced much more radical ideas.

That, and the price tag is probably a couple bucks too much for the average high school student. wink.gif

i dont think u realize how hard of a project this would be (mainly the gull wing). i worked @ for a company that made trucks that ppl in wheel chairs could drive(www.kvb.ca) and there is alot of work that goes into making a gull wing that will actually work. not to mention all the other stuff u have to figure out. but if ur serious and u run into any probs gimme a shout(lesson 1 a 12v window motor can be ur best friend to bring the gull wing up and down)

How did you make the 3 Warthhogs on the right, because they sure as hell aren't in Halo.
