Currently in progress, it's called "Skate Boy", I'm not sure who produced it (not at home can't look at the box) Basic coat on and am working on the shading of panel lines with pastel chalk. It sort reminded me of a bug ( a mosquito to be exact) so I decided to go with the green. I'd like to set this in a swamp vignette. We'll have to see. My time is running out. It'll be part of a sci-fi exhibit in October.




Later guys

The style reminds me of a kit I had about 20+years ago.....I think it's in a similar family as the Joe Crusher set, maybe?

The Locust battlemech, from the battle tech series, lifted the design of a two legged walker for the game, and the two do share a distinct artistic relationship.

BAck to your work.

Looking good, so far. Like the subtle line work on the panel edges, is there a spot where two drums (or similar) connect to the upper fuselage (upper rear portion)?

Good stuff, from classic style sci fi!!!

Cheers

Yes, that's correct! It is the Joe Crusher series! And yes, there are engine pods that are located at the top.

Hi Steven,
well, that was a guess from memory lane.

From memory (again) it was a Japanese manufacturer.

Looking forward to seeing your work progress on htis kit.

cheers
