    Mech- Hagetaka

    While I'm basing my Mech off of Mechwarrior's Vulture (Mad Dog) for some reason Mad Dog just wasn't that appealing of a name to me... so I went with a bit more obscure Mechwarrior lore reference: Hagetaka.


















    Version 2 Upper Torso Chassis:



    Still a lot of work to go! I'll keep updating this post with my progress.

    Re: Mech- Hagetaka

    Looks great Tyberius! You can always opt for the Clan names of the mechs,

    Mad Dog = Vulture

    Mad Cat = Timber Wolf

    I personally like the Clan names, was never really a fan of IS names...

    Oh yeah, you might want to consider using the brackets between the hip servos like in the humanoid for better structural integrity...

    Planning on dropping a servo in between the hip servos for torso rotation.

    Hagetaka is what the Draconis Combine nicknamed the Vulture when they first encountered it, Japanese for of course, "Vulture"

    Re: Mech- Hagetaka

    So is your Bioloid currently in a humanoid configuration or as Hagetaka?

    Humanoid until this weekend, figured I would play around with a the stock humanoid for a little bit until I tore it apart to rebuild it.

    That looks fun Tyberius.

    The Bioloid set is looking more and more interesting to me...

    Re: Mech- Hagetaka

    The AX-12+ are quite torqy (low 200 oz-in if I remember correctly), and without too many metal parts inside, the unit is actually pretty darn light...

    I think if you made a chicken walker/scout out of it, it would leave more room for weapons (airsoft bb canons) since it's no longer carrying a shoulder, elbows, hands like a humanoid.

    Still, an Atlas in the BT world is... an Atlas! What can I say! My favorite 100-ton mech has always been "Stone Rhino" Freaking thing is a tank!

    Re: Mech- Hagetaka

    I'm trying to leave it as light-weight as possible, for future expansion of rocket packs on the shoulders.

    Keep in mind the AX-12s get almost 275oz/in torque running on a 3s LiPo (which they do no prob)

    Re: Mech- Hagetaka

    Some renders of the initial foot design, going to make the base where the ankle will mount in a bit larger. These are going to be stamped out of 3/16" aluminum.





    ^ Left toe edge wouldn't draw properly for some reason.

    Re: Mech- Hagetaka

    Tore apart the stock humanoid, done playing with it and I need to get a move on with my Mech.

    Lower torso and legs are done, keeping it simple. I have the upper torso frame almost completed in CAD, just need to get it CNC'd.

    Pictures updated in first post, and in My Gallery
