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!

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?|

Trying to sell an "Incredibly Rare Battletech MadCat" for $1700. Seriously?
