    Yep, it does. Another blatant ripoff by the designers of Mechwarrior

    2001 Pod

    Already in the works! Sorry, but progress on ANY project is slow due to lack of a permanent working area (I hate having to put everything away when I'm not working on it) and a recent surgery and recovery. I'm up to about 60% and it's hard to sit up so design and test build are difficult at best.

    Please excuse that my projects are so slow, but unfortunately, that's how it is right now.

    I have to do a MAJOR redesign of the Pod as it is very hard to build and I want to try to simplify things. On a good note, all of the parts fit on the first try! I still have to figure out how I'm going to make the rear door area.

    Here are some photos of the work in progress (sphere is about 7 inches diameter on this test build, actual model scale TBD later). It wasn't too bad building the thing and putting it all away because of the various sub-assemblies that could be built by themselves and then putting them all together the same evening.

    I'll start a new thread and keep you posted in a bit so as to not hijack this thread.

    Best Regards,
    Ron Caudillo
