It's a bold idea. I wish it didn't look so goofy, though.

Well, to each his own. Thanks everyone. I had a good time building, can't wait to finish him and get him painted up. I had an 'Iron Giant' kind of image in my head and it actually came out a bit better than I had planned (usually its the opposite)

Yeah, I shifted to buying premium walkers, just don't like painting vehicles. And so instead of selling the unpainted ones I had lying around, I just repurposed them.

How many kits did you cannibalise for this!

At least one heavy walker, two mediums and a Blackhawk. The phasers could be just leftovers from Wildfire configurations.

About 6 maybe? The medium walkers were from some extra core sets. The Blackhawk was from an extra set of revised core I got. The heavy walker was free to me,so the only thing that was really bought were the honey turrets which I normally use the wildfire. So overall, not a lot spent

The axis Superfortress walker has to look like the Spider from Wild Wild West.




Then again, nothing should ever look like anything from Wild Wild West, ever!

No really Never Ever!!

i dont know , i am not "feeling" that paint scheme .

i think its just that i'm too used to the holywood movie robat image where they are always metalic , or grey , or bright race car colors ....

GREAT idea using thise robostruct kit pieces for the back .

it will be a bit before i can get around to my answer to your robot , it wil be a bit traditional , but cool none the less .

That's just the raw build, not the paint scheme. I'm spraying the whole thing down now in a spray that closely matches the factory basecoat until I do get around to painting it.

Thanks for the feedback!
