This morning, I came across two mecha models, from two different builders, that share a common attribute. Their legs are all quite thin, one might even say elegant (or flimsy). Personally, I have trouble keeping mecha with thick legs and joints standing, so I really appreciate the effort that went into these.
First, there’s the Zip Kit by Dave Steeves. It had an old-school mechwarrior vibe that I dig, and while the construction of the base is simple, I quite like it.
Next, is the VT-318 Kelly, by Rod Gillies. He could just as well have called it the black swan, as it stands balanced en pointe. It’s also a cool looking mecha, once you get over the shock that it’s actually standing.
