Picture Time

The snow has melted away, letting me take the mech outside for the first time. Pictures!

The "Stasis Dock" (wooden frame supporting the mech) is on some casters, which are braked by these rotating chunks of wood.

Started work on a PVC subframe.  Many little elbows and unions give me flashbacks to the good ol' days of goofing around with lego.  Must have a hundred or so feet of PVC in this little beauty.

Armor Brainstorming

Been a while, the big ol' mech as just been sitting in my garage.  Outside its snowing (which is unfriendly to cardboard) and my budget has dried up for a bit.  You can guess what my tax return is going towards.

An idea for basic covering.

Looking into some more detailed design eventually.  Extra points for a wireframe view?

Some more armor ideas/ display support.  A mech needs someplace to dock, doesn't it?

I've found myself liking the "Bubblegum Crisis" and "Metal Skin Panic: MADOX 01" Mechs.  Something about 80s cheese...
