This design originally was a challenge from the standpoint that I picked two rare colors and neither has an inverted slope in the parts palette. Since then I have built quite a few more, some of which are in more readily available colors. I am in the process of building the ninth unit. There are now 10 variants of the chassis.

About this creation



I made a few changes to the cockpit to help center the pilot in such a cramped space.

Quoting Ezra Dimas This is really nice, man. BTW, can I see what the cockpit looks like with a pilot inside?
Sorry it took so long for a reply...I've been a bit busy. Here's the link to my flickr page with new photos. http://www.flickr.com/photos/12318190@N08/9580366932/

Quoting Yapdap of Rainos I like your use of uncommon colors.
I'm glad you liked it! I do seem to gravitate towards the rarer colors....Probably because they aren't so bright!

Quoting Oliver Plague Superb coloring and solid design, things you don't really expect what with limiting yourself to only grey and two rare colours. 5/5
Thanks, brother! I'll admit it presented some interesting problems. I'm glad you liked it!

Quoting Tim C Gorgeous build, Jon. Love the coloring, definitely one of your strong points and you didn't disappoint with this one. The feet look great and the weaponry looks extremely dangerous. Well done, and nice to see something new from you.
Thanks, Tim! I do put great effort into the coloring of my creations. It all goes back to a discussion that we (members of Mecha Hub)had years ago. The gist of it was that it seemed that the Ideal number of main colors was about three. Any more and aesthetically the design seemed to suffer. I do my best to adhere to that. Of course, sometimes a piece I want to use doesn't come in the color I want. As I mentioned to Charlie, I will post pictures of my latest Mech after Brickworld. Thanks again for the praise.

Quoting . Charlie . You take pride in your work. The armor is fantastic!
Thanks, Charlie! I'm glad you think so and that you liked my work. I have another mech to post, but I'm keeping it under wraps until after Brickworld.
