The Mad Cat was the first Omni Mech the Inner Sphere encountered at the start of the Clan invasion. Their computers, not recognizing the design, named it the Mad Cat due to the similarities to the Inner Sphere Marauder and Catapult.
About this creation


Armed with dual armed mounted Extended Range Large and Medium Lasers, two shoulder Long Range Missile Racks, Machine Guns and other small support Lasers, the Mad Cat can easily hold it's own against almost any other 'Mech. In fact, it can probably fair well against multiple opponents too.

The hardest part about the construction of this project was the legs, since it's a 'chicken walker'. It took up about half the time. While I was working on it, my youngest asked me what I was doing and I explained it to him. He laughed and told me good luck. Apparently luck was with me because I obviously made it work. The design is actually quite stable allowing it too stand with the legs and torso in various positions.

Enjoy and please let me know what you think.



Here's a full front view of the Mad Cat. I'm sorry it's blurry. Maybe it's from too much coffee. You may notice that it appears some of the missiles are missing from the racks. I did that on purpose to give the appearance of using the ammo and due to the fact that I ran out of those bricks...



A closer view from the front. Not blurry either. I wanted to make the 'toes', that angle outward, to flex with whatever terrain he would stand on but, I didn't have enough of the parts I would need so that idea was scrapped.



A close up of the torso giving a better view of the mechwarrior inside and the weapons mounted on either side of the cockpit.



Side view. I twisted the left leg out a bit to show the flexibility and stability.



Back view. Yeah, I know it's not much to look at.



Pretty good view looking down into the cockpit.



There's the lead figurine I used as one of my references for the construction. The other was the 3050 Technical Readout cover.



Here's the figurine and the pilot, wearing a red and white cooling vest.



Here's the Warhammer and Mad Cat side by side.

I was constructing a repair facility for the Warhammer but, also planned on making at least one more 'Mech. So, I stopped working on that, and built the Mad Cat just to ensure I had enough parts to make it decent. With that I have no idea what the repair base will look like now once I ever get it finished. I'm still thinking about adding a light 'Mech to help the Warhammer take on the Mad Cat though.

Quoting David Britt Awesome work. I really enjoy seeing a yellow colored Mech. Too often you see bley or dark greys used to much. I will study this and maybe try to adapt some of it into my style of fighting machines.
Thanks. I really didn't have much choice in the coloring since that's the majority of what I had left. LOL If anything on it inspires you, go for it.

Quoting COMMANDER SCAR Real awesome!!! It seams that You have a surplus of yellow Pieces! Oh and thanks for joining my group :)
You're welcome and I'm glad to be there. I have a castle set that is older than you are that is about 95% yellow bricks, so...I have a few. Almost all the other yellow bricks are being used in the base construction.

Quoting Rabid Goldfish Pretty neat design. The MadCat's a good design to build, given the structure. I'm not too overly fond of the knee joint, but the rest of it is very well built. Good Work! ^Blub^
Thanks. Yeah, I thought about the knee joint when I built it. It was either the design I went with or adding in another ratcheting joint piece just like in the hip, wanting the lower leg to twist out. The big issue with that was I planned on making a third Mech, thinking Panther and would have needed those for the legs. However, I changed my mind and made a Locust out of the remaining parts, which I still have to post up. I may alter the Mad Cat legs now though.

Quoting Rex David dude! this is awesome!!! you almost captured the exact look! all though the arm could use some beefing up but the legs are cool!..can you check out my mocs? if you have time
Thanks. Sadly you are right about the arms but, with the parts used for the shoulder joints they wouldn't be able to handle too much more weight. I certainly will look and see what you've done.

Quoting Matty Mason Epic win! However, the Warhammer should be strong enough to take on a Madcat... twin PPC's and all that stuff... Nicely done, I'm making a digital Black Hawk mech 'supposedly' to scale with these. Makes me want to have an uber mech fight with you =D
Thank you. As awesome as the Warhammer is, the Mad Cat does have it outgunned at long range with the ER Large Lasers coupled with the LRM racks. It would be something to see though.

Quoting Chris Roach You're going battle mech crazy - great job!
The 'mechs have nothing to do with my lack of sanity. Ask my wife and kids. j/k Seriously, next to coming up with Xformer ideas, that's those are my favorite things to build. I just need to look into budgeting bricks into the household so I don't have to keep disassembling everything to make others. LOL
