Having built models from kits, to scratch-building known works up to life size, I thought it was time to come up with a design of my own. Mech is something I’ve wanted to try for a while as it is technical and futuristic. To design one of my own, gives me greater freedom to use whatever I have and make it up as I go along, which really appeals to me.
I started out with a very large selection of leftovers and garbage from years of hording in my shed. After sketching a rough chassis, based on materials abundant and available, I set to the task of building said chassis, then adding technical-looking bling to it. Built up in layers, with top-layers partially obscuring lower layers, the thing starts to look like it could actually function.
Once built, it will be mounted to a base plate with a diorama built onto it. then airbrushed to finish.

Filling in the front of the turret/cockpit. Most of the unit is now sealed, with some details to add to break up some of the round underbody parts.
