Damn, you're doing what I couldn't with 'Big Berfa' All those details and the paint-job, totally awesome - it's what I wanted to do but failed (Berfa's still sitting neglected on a shelf, maybe I need to send her to you )

Thanks as always guy's.

@ Waaazag. I hear you on the size. Might look at it again later. See what you think of arm swaps below.

@ Shas Thank you.

@ Dr H. Thank you and sorry, about the way I post things sometimes, just like for people to see the process some times.

First is a shot of a LED mounted in the bottom of the cab.....(blooming impoossible to get a decent shot of.....



Then there is the last combat arm.....



And some of it is interchangable.....



The new arm is a hydrolic spikey thing. I think of the dredd grabbing with the claw then spearing it and the hydrolics tearing the spike into it's victims.

Thoughts?

Also Got the shooty bit to decide on, what do people think I should go with. Originally thought Rokkit rack on roof when I make it. But now I am not sure, maybe a skorcher between its legs!! Or just mounted low on his left. Your thoughts would be helpful here.

As to over all size, he currently stands 8cm ( 3" ) Tall to the top of the body. Exhausts and arms extend everything everywhere.

Thanks for looking in and c&C very much appreciated.

Thank you all very much.

@ Walord_ky Thank you, been a while since then.

@ Everyone else thanks guys really appreciate the comments.

Gear box and engine management systems.....cheating, it's all in a box.....



Not sure about this, was meant to be out the back, as on the mega gargant there is a "3rd" wheel arrangement out the back, was going to make this the main drive and have this engine and gearbox as the guts of it. Trouble I have is I originally planned to have it in line but that is coming out a bit big....


So probably plan B, going to mount it like this and have a couple pully wheels and a belt between....


Got to add a couple hubs and drive shafts coming out of the gearbox. And then set up some rear tracks.

The drive for the side tracks will be in the "hidden" in the housings above the track sections with appropriate exhausts out the back.

I have started work on the front main gun deck, just the beams and supports at the moment, this will be on the 6th level, still trying to work out if I do much for the 5th level yet, maybe another room.

Thank you all for looking and comments are wonderful and gratefully received.

I think the top mount is a cool idea, especially with the belt idea.

Oh yeah, that'll be awesome. Could then put a little tangle/rat's nest of beams under the rest of the engine as a 'support' for it. Maybe make a little grot nest or something in there, too.

@ Skinflint Games, yup all I would ask is a bit of help with the postage depending on where we are talking about.

Bit more done, but doesn't look like much...

Added in the panels on the walls where there are not rooms and some upper braces ..
