Geert is back with another update of the Hellbringer. He is weathering it with some interesting techniques. I was running some of the text through a translator....interesting stuff. http://www.modelbouw1.be/forum/science-fiction/2434-1-60th-hellbringer-5.html#post46752

Here is the latest kit I am working. This is the 85 ton Templar from TRO 3067. It is described as a mech that moves like a heavy mech but fights like an assault mech. I have to work on the weapon's pods, but all in all it is really close to being done. I have blended the features I like on the mini with Mechwarrior version. It will stand about 8 or so inches tall when done. Thoughts?

Just a reminder, we are always looking for people to join the Battlemech Club. You can join as a builder, kit creator, Club contributor, or just a fan. Also, it takes a lot of money to create and cast these kits. I can see why Armorcast had a hard time. LOL! If you are interested in seeing more kits, we welcome donation. All donators qualify for first shot at new mechs off the assembly line...at a discount. Contact me to donate. What little extra we make off the kits is going right back into the club. Currently, we have not even broken even on the costs of rubber for the molds on the Puma. I know in many parts of the world, the economy just stinks, but I remind you that we are doing all of this out of our own pockets. Any help would be welcome. If finacial support is not possible, we gladly accept "scraps." If you have extra stuff around, be it from old navy kits, railroad kits, or especially armor and military kits we would love to give it a home. Don't throw away that extra piece or that broken kit...send it to us! We would love to help keep that stuff out of a landfill and on our mechs! Contact me if interested.
Geert, one of our builders overseas, is continuing his Loki customizations. I am regularly impressed with his ideas and execution. You have no idea how many times I have seen things he does and thought to myself, "Why didn't I think of that?" Keep up the great work Geert!
More from Scott. This is one of his earlier scratch builds. We all recognize the Firestarter. Honestly, this was never one of my favorite designs, but you have to admit that Scott did a great job catching this mech's essence. It looks like it jumped right out of the pages of the TRO.
