Adrain Tan's Maruader

So, I am going through my stuff and find a folder with these pics.  Blessed Blake only knows how I misplaced these, but they are of a build Adrain Tan did of a Maruader.  Here is what he has to say about the build:

...while searching on the net for resources, I came across this pic and I just have to use it as a reference to build my kit.

We all know that the Macross Pod Glaug looks exactly like the Marauder. So using a Bandai Pod Glaug kit as a base, I tried to modify it so that it looks more Mechwarrior and less Macross...I also built a open up hatch so that I could install a cockpit.

Adrain, that is an AWSOME interpretation and does fit the Battlemech feel much better than the original.  Please feel free to share more of your builds at any time.  Thanks!

Okay...two years ago I started this bugger.  I was making good progress on the torso, but was getting hung up on the legs.  So, I sent it to the "Jedi Master" of mechs, Scott from the Messy Desk blog.  He sent it back a week ago and I finished some scribing, cleaning and detail work.  I sent Scott a mech about 30% done...he backed off some of what I did and ran with the the other 70-75%.  He has my thanks...and I have the ANNIHILATOR!

Gauging Interest

Alrighty all....I have been moved by Scott's Hollander.  So moved, in fact, I am trying to see how much interest there would be in the Puma we released a couple years ago.  The molds still have some life left in them and I am thinking about casting a final run before they die.

So, any interest?

There are 26 pieces in this kit and in this photo you can see it assembled. As it is here, there is only glue on the knee joints, everything else is friction fit.

It stands about 7 1/2 inches tall depending on the pose(which is easily modifiable)  and a decal sheet is included with various House symbols and Merc units. Decals were printed on the Xerox Phaser Color Laser system.

I think I am finally happy with the weapons load-out on my Stormcrow.

IS Hunchback

Last year Chris Lynch sent me a great kit of the Hunchback IIC.  I did the instructions for him and he let me keep the kit.
Deep down though, I never liked the IIc model.  I am a classic kind of guy, so I decided to remodel this into an IS version.  I started last year, but with grad school and a big move, model building got put on the back burner.  Here is where I had left off....

In the past couple week, watching Scott's builds has gotten me fired up again.  I am about done with the Hunchback.  I have made significant changes to the torso, arms, forearm medium lasers, and added knee guards. That knee joint just seemed too vulnerable.  Here is where it stands today.

Decisions, Decisions

So, for a combo Valentines and Anniversary present, my wife got me the Wave Tomahawk Destroid as well as the Wave Destroid Defender.

So, now that I am done with my Masters Degree I may have time to build some more kits.  My inner debate is this:  Do I build these true to Macross or do I pick out a Battletech personality dor each and do their custom ride...kinda like the Warhammer posted below?

Thoughts anyone?????
