1:35 Manned Walker
I’ve been wanting to build some sort of open cockpit piloted power suit / walker for a while now. I started with a seated tank crew figure from Miniart and built a seat for him from some styrene scraps and kit parts. I really didn’t have a plan, other than I wanted to have an exaggerated upper body and small legs, much like a cartoon tough guy or bully. The roll cage was formed from some 1.5mm acrylic rod, using a heat gun and a wooden form. This being a more cartoonish concept, I didn’t worry too much about the realism of the mechanical details, and went for a more for an impressionistic approach. I painted it with a custom green mixed from Mission Model acrylics. The weathering is a combination of enamels and oil paint. Thanks for looking.
