Originally an entry for the MAC forums 2012 Mech Contest, but It didnít really fit in a category being that it will be slightly altered in many areas, so It will be a new custom build for the forums. Depending on interest,this piece may be up for sale when I am done.  
I will be between this, my day job,and many other project in the next while so I hope I can keep you entertained with this wip and post regularly.  
:unsure:  :D
Thanks for looking! Any questions or comments are welcome.


TONS of seam lines. Clean em up time.

Priming.


Seam lines gone. Adding black for metals.

I built one of these before I started traveling for a few months (just out of the box, though I'd like to go back and properly paint it sometime). Going to be interesting to see what you'll do with it.

What I noticed, aside from the massive amount of seamlines, is that the parts that make up the skeletal frame are also incredibly brittle, is that something you're experiencing?

Yes. Lots of seams, slightly brittle. A lot of koto kits are worse though, and I don't mind building those either.
I don't find it that brittle though. I only get it posed up and lock it down there though.
