you can see here is what I consider some of my finest creations.
'Mechs from Mechwarrior 4 already look great, and creating Lego
models based on those designs almost guarantees good results.
I started with the Vulture, a model actually based on the much
larger "UCS Vulture" I built earlier. It was followed
by three Mad Cats I built simultaniously. In order to complete
a Clan "star" of 5 'Mechs I replaced all red Lego pieces
at my older Puma/Adder with blue elements. Blue and gray has always
been a great combination since the time of Classic Space. I added
dark grey and yellow highlights to my color scheme, as well as
black for arms and guns. I feel this combination becomes the models,
and it allows me to use a larger variety of elements. Not every
Lego-pieces exists in every color ... I started creating more
color-matched models, but soon I ran out of parts ... well, 2
months and at least 15 bricklink-orders later my work was done.
Of the 15 'Mechs, only Puma and Blood Asp were not entirely new.
Actually I had to paint a few parts on the Blood Asp (in case
you were wondering where I got the blue 10x10 domes from). I also
planned on switching pieces on my older Nova Cat, but I realized
I would have to replace virtually everything, so I just built
a new Nova Cat. Using this opportunity, I also did some changes
to the new Nova Cat to make it closer to the MW4-variant; a shorter
torso, a larger belly, a hunched back and new guns on the right
