Look like they're straight out of some kid's Japanese sc-fi cartoon (in a seriously good way). Very cool.

Thanks for the comments.
Come to think of it , you're right.

If I had thought of it ,I would have modeled the Mecha like these, especially the antenna & shoulder mounted flashing lights. Still not too late perhaps or…..

I might be able to find me some of the older style Darkest Stars Battle Armor, which I think will fit the bill perfectly and the 4 legged droids also, off course.

Patlabor + Ghost in the shell. What more can you want ?

"Patlabor + Ghost in the shell. What more can you want ?"
You hit a soft spot for me. But I do need to add… Robotech!

Great work on those, by the way!!!

Thanks Capt Flash,
But off course how could I have forgotten Robotech. Very similar designs.

Could use a Battletech Wasp also. Would look nice painted in white & blue.

Someone asked me how I did the head antennae on the Parma Suits.
Those are made using hammered needles. Use soft steel one not the brittle ones ( if they bend they're soft steel ).

Hold them using a small long nose pliers on a metal bench vise ( or a small anvil or any other flat metal surface) & hammer flat . Bend at 90 deg & cut to size.

Much more durable than anything else I've tried.

Oh & they make excellent 15mm /25mm swords & spears also :):):)

Hope you use this

Just got done reading about a fellow who ran a jet bike race for his family. Serious fun in Saskatoon!

The above offer some AWESOME corporate racing teams. ;->=
