    Currently I did model 10 or 11 mechs, although I only released 6 by now, the rest is under various stages of completion, and I also started working on 3 more models.

    I'm not counting models which I did not model from scratch, but did the clean up necessary to convert to paper model...

    You did forget my MW3 Orion and Awesome, they are both at Mechwarior3.org downloads page and also on their own FileFront links (I didn't have an account on that time), those make the 6 released ;)

    On MW3.org forum?

    The bushwacker was cleaned and unfolded by me, but the model was not created from scratch like the others, it is the original model from the game, as well as the Cauldron Born, but that one was cleaned and unfolded by another guy there.

    Not released yet, but there is a guy, Cantaris, working on it, don't know when it will be ready to release, I guess it is at beta testing phase, not sure...

    Howdy Shiftdel Sorry I'm slack with the emails.

    I just flicked through your design tutorials @ mech3.org ~ great stuff ! I don't want to stand on any toes, but budding designers are always looking for design tuts, and I'm sure they would find those helpful, so a link to those pages in your signature here would be handy. Or maybe repost them here..?

    Thanks Gearz, I never thought about to post a link for those tuts on mw3.org, because as they are in another forum, I didn't know if would be ethical to do so (post a link for another forum).

    I still need to finish my tutorial about cleaning models in Metasequoia, so I could post it here too, altough I'm not sure if it would be helpful, as Jaybats already wrote an excellent tutorial for Meta.

    I'd just uploaded another skinset, skinset3_materials; this time it has a generic steel skin, another rusty one (which I like more :D ) and the third, my favorite, sandburn, which looks like it has heavy battle damage, just cool :D

    Another update, it is almost complete, I got a bit lazy with this, so it has only one joint at the waist, I may include 2 more on the arms, if I decide to put joints there to make storage easier.

    Final assembled parts:

    And the torso mounted over the legs:
