Diesel Veterans
In the early days of frame technology, frames were heavy, cumbersome, slow, ran fossil fuels, and were a terrifying sight on the battlefield. Although each frame required a full support team for long engagements, their potential was clear, and frames would forever change warfare.
About this creation
DIES-3L


The Diesel Indirect Explosive Support series was one of the earliest artillery frames conceived. Although its tripod layout was used to lower production cost and provided stability when firing, it proved to greatly hinder movement. However, it did allow for a simple mechanism to change the frames firing arc, by simply adjusting the rear leg which safely positioned behind the vehicle.

SLA-6


The Superior Land Assault frames were one of the first iterations of the vertical tank. At the time they offered little improvement over a tank other than a superior weapon height, allowing them to fire over top of obstructions. The early designs suffered from many set backs; they had no torso twist, a wide turning arc, and perhaps worst of all, zero armor covering the vital engine. This caused the frame to rely heavily on supporting forces to protect the rear and side flanks. As technology advanced, engines and armor became smaller, lighter and more efficient alleviating these problems.

All looking pretty sweet! Interesting how you can decrease size and increase detail! And Diesel Power, of course kicks arse!

I think what I like the most about these designs is that you can literally build whole battalions of them and then stage a full-scale war scene with them! Simply brilliant.

These little guys are sweet! I love the DIES.3l's stance with the swept back frame. More than sleek, it seems sturdy and ready to lob a serious hurt. I can completely see a battlefield overrun and littered with these little gems. Clever legs too. Excellent!

These are great, Dude! So many intricate details, they look like minifig scale. Do you wear loops to build these?

A super pair of designs. I think that they have the feel of things that came before the SAFS. Are they part of Ma.Ktober? I like the Technic chassis and the neat acronym of the big mech. Basing the little mechs on post boxes is a great idea, with the slit for vision and the ladder hanging below, almost like an armoured kilt. As usual with your builds, it's great fun to spot the use of parts and interesting connections too.
