New Year, New Construction Method

Well...these may not be models we could cast and sell, but they are 'Mechs...and they are built from scratch.  I have to say, these LEGO mechs are cool as all get-out!  Here is the info in Nick's own words:

I have built several battletech models of my own, but mine are constructed out of Lego. I find this is an easier medium to build with than what you do! Some of my past models can be found at in one of the galleries page. I have currently built to date a Vulture, Thor, Dasher, Koshi and two points (ten) of Elemental infantry armor. I had built a Black Hawk, Fenris and Ryoken years ago, but they have been scrapped and are currently back on the drawing board...I have a half-completed Uller, Loki and Fenris rebuild all getting closer to completion. The Loki is close, but the building is slow going...

All of my models are approximately 1/32 scale, and my Thor stands just about 15.5 inches tall, the Vulture about 14.6 inches. All the models have arm posability, torso twist, opening weapons pods and cockpit compartments and are fully standing with no glue. Some have leg posability.

Thanks Nick.  Everyone else, enjoy the pics!
