Hunchback, MW4 Style

Here it is!  From Simon Kelly in the UK is the Hunchback kit.  The last one we had was a revamped recast of the Tyco toy.  This is a completely new scratch build that has been converted to a kit.  It is currently available on eBay UK. 

Here is the link: Simon's Auction

Coming Soon in the UK


There is a new lad joining the fray. He is going to start producing his own kits in the UK.  Stay tuned for an official missive from our new builder later this week detailing the MechWarrior 4 style mech he is producing.

A few months ago, Scott sent me the lower legs and shoulders from his Zeus in 1/60 scale. Now, the Zeus is far from my favorite mech...its not even in my top ten...but as Coke was nice enough to send me some pieces, I decided to do my own version.

I used the paper model found at as my template. The torso I filled in and built up with Apoxy Sculpt. The legs and upper arms were layered to look armored like the Zeus-X. It is pretty much done except for some tweaks to the gun arm to include an ammo feed mechanism and the radiator fins coming off the shoulder.

As it is not my favorite design, I will entertain offers for it.  Just drop me an e-mail.
