Been a fan of the Mechwarrior and Battletech franchises most of my life and while the catapult was not my favorite mech to pilot (I like my assault class) It has always been my favorite Mech design. Recently I found out that the franchise is having a resurgence and while I dont care for the fact that the new games are both "free to play" games, I do love the look and feel they have captured. Here is a picture of what the redesigned mech looks like: You can find more pictures along with the orthographic I am using as my blueprint here: http://penny-arcade.com/report/edit...fully-illustrated-insanely-intricate-birth-of The first thing I did was start with the backside of the model as it was one of the only places where the geometry was a clear cut rectangle. Once this is in place I can scale the rest of the "plates" around it. I folded the white strip around the edges of the line drawing and then glued a cutout of the side profile directly down the center: I then cutout the shoulder part that would serve as the mounting position for the LRMs. Using the cutout as a template I was able to make several more. I then determine the dimensions by measuring the front side orthographic drawing and folding a strip around the edges of the template. Once that was dont I made a strip 2mm smaller and lamenated it 3 sheets of card thick. I folded this around the shoulder as well. I used this smaler thicker strip as a guide and glued on thin 2.5mm strips around the edges giving it the correct tappered edge look: The last thing I did was use the template to cut out the detail piece for the pannels and glue that to both sides of the shoulders: I can only upload 6 pics at a time so I will post another update right after this.
