    Hello Again ... I hope that U didn't forget about me :D. As I said time for next mod, this time it will be something that is called here scratch build... I will say it will be scrap build :naughty:.
    First of all ... It will be something BIG -> about 1.5m H x 1m W but there is only one sketch. This will help me when I will forget what i'm doing :idea: .

    could be better but i'm not an artist :wallbash:


    [​IMG]
    this "thing" was in my head for a while but now i know that this what i will do will be a bit different. Not everything can be done what is sketched here

    I've got this for the begining (this is scrap after my brothers removal to his own house)(got lots of this :clap: )
    [​IMG]

    Afer a while i found that that i don't have to buy glue :D (also acrap afer a redecoration)
    It's a special glue for caisson but i will use it only for polystyrene forms (it's a polymer based glue)
    [​IMG]

    this sophisticated tool will help me with applying glue
    [​IMG]

    few of this will be assembled and glued in this way

    few in this way

    hmm ... i'm wondering what I was doing? But now i've got nice table :confused:
    [​IMG]

    now i get it ... I'm doing smth cube like ;)
    [​IMG]

    after a 5 min long break ... my main tool just dissapeared... noone would be soo stupid to robb this sooo i started looking for it.
    I'm not a Sherlock but i foud it (damn ... :wallbash:)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    let's play scrapy dice :D
    [​IMG]

    How big it will be :confused: that big !!:rock:

    I hope that U like it ... but ... There is also a question for U all.

    End look of it should be:

    A) round
    B) Cubical
    C) smth betweet round and cubical (polyhedron)

    if someone have good pictures of mech i would be very happy :)

    IT WILL NOT BE A TRANSFORMER :p:nono:

    Lookin' good! :thumb:
    But it is a bit strange choice for a mech, as most of them have rear-facing knee joints. And your has normal knee joints, why, if I can ask?

    yeaap marf41 that's right most of them have rear-facing knee joints. I think that this was just my imagination. It won't be typical mech but if my plans will change i will go for it :). This night next update but verry small. (this draft is only help for me :D it can evolve)
    Cheers!

    Sorry for a long time without now updates but now only few photos. Sorry also for a poor quality (it's phone camera).
    Studies ... a lot of time without modding :/ i hate that time :)

    [​IMG]
    Huh that's the front but not exactly, the upper side should be rotated 180degrees.

    [​IMG]
    here we have got back side of legs, you can see joints of those legs. Remember this is only a skelet of the whole mod :p

    [​IMG]
    side view... upper side is just holding legs together without glue, whole construction is self standing.

    [​IMG]
    And last picture of low quality :wallbash:

    I PROMISE THAT NEXT UPDATE WILL BE BETTER... I hope that now U see how the mech will look like.

    dood just my opinion you should run to water cooling pipes through each leg looking thing !! now that would be awsome

    i was thinking about imitation of pneumatic pipes attached to the legs near the joints. But watercooling in it could be very nice too. Thanks for the idea pksjaveed! Planned realization time "HOLIDAYS!" MoBo will be in something like a backpack of this mech covered with perspex shaped like a diamond dome.

    But unfortunetly till holidays this project is freezed... :/

    let forget about it for a while and not add more posts :) there are much more interesting projects going on and also a MOTM !

    Regards,
    HeXeN
