I don't know whether you have this problem but some of my posts disappear just after posting and I'm sure they were there, which is a waste of precious time.

Anyway ,I am posting it again.
Here are some more scratchbuilt mechs.

Wow, I really love that one on the far left!

Where do you get all these bits? And, most importantly, where do you get your design ideas?

Very cool…. I read Hunchback mech and thought of the Battletech Hunchback, but this is a neat concept.

Man, you really give them a lot of personality! And the wear and tear is impressive, gives them a lot of life.

Thanks all for the praise.
I was prompted to do 3 more after reading a comment by Redroom, which made me think that it had potential.That's why feedback is good 😎😎😎.

Dan almost all the parts are scratcbuilt.legs & arms are Square GW or round plastic sprue, cut or heated over a candle.
The body is a simple card & pvc flat top pyramid plus guitar string pipes.
The garbage tank is Lego & the power generator a switch knob.
Baggage is milliput + GS.
Figure converted AA penal figure.
Bases are cardboard cut with a hole cutter.
You must see possibilities not shapes.

See examples here also….. plus several more in my blog.




From where? Good question.I saw a similar concept for this one on Artstation. I get inspiration from everywhere & everything but mostly in my head, not very helpful I know but that's why one has to think possibilities.
For e.g.. your posts are the proverbial mustard seed ,what one does with them is only limited by imagination.

Another thing , I have a rough idea what I'm going to make but I usually get carried away into making something somewhat different & that my friend, is creativity .

These are really great!

Thanks tsofian glad you like them.😎😎😎

For any who would like to check, I have just uploaded the pic that started it all.

Sorry can't paste it here as my android tablet doesn't let me copy image location.

I finally posted the comparison pic of what inspired me.
As you can see mine is squatter with shorter arms. I also did away with all those fiddly details as it wouldn't make sense to model them for a gaming standard model in 15mm.


Tell me what you think now, Dan

These are awesome! See possibilities not shapes… Words of wisdom :-)

Thanks Skinflint,
Indeed my friend, indeed … & it seems you are using these words to your advantage also.

Keep it up
