Mechs from Jon

On to the fun stuff.  Jon is a follower who has ordered my kits and has been building his own mechs for a long time.  He sent me some pics of his builds.  I am impressed.  His work is mainly in 1/48 scale because, "there are so many aircraft kits in that scale and accessories, flight crew, deck crew etc." He is planning a mech bay to go with his kits.

Jon also said, "I have built a Mad Cat, Mad Cat Mk ll, Masakari, Puma from Mechwarrior 3, Vulture, Bushwacker, Roadrunner, Shadowcat, Thor, [and]Warhammer being attacked by Clan Elementals in desert terrain. If there are any in particular you would like to see let me know and I will sent you some photos."  What do you all say?  More photos?  I am a big YES!

Here are some pics...comments welcome!  BTW, I love the Kell Hound scheme...always one of my favorites!

Uziel Update

Okay...its not much to look at but the Uziel is coming along nicely.  I am really pushing to have this one done by the end of March about the same time I am expecting the Mad Cat MK II in.  On the main body, I just have to add either paneling or scribe panel lines. Either one will be a bitch.  The lower legs are about done...just need to add some detail.  The upper leg is roughed.  This weekend I intend to finish it, mold it and then make a left upper and right upper. 

Yes, that is the Bushwacker commission I have started.

I have made machine guns to go in the torso shoulder hole.

I made one upper arm, then molded and cast it to ensure they are identical.

The SRM is a separate piece that sits right over the torso.

The leg will be 3 separate, posable pieces with the foot and toes also separate.

Back of the torso and hip.  What's the Uziel without jumpjets?
