The back of the legs were done in foamboard and bondo, I gave it a rough sanding job, leaving lots of pits, so when I painted it, it looked as though it had walked through difficult terrain.
I thought the treads were cool.
I have the 'mechs pilot standing next to the Timberwolf to give a sense of scale.
On the original MW4 model, there was no vent behind the hip, but I stuck one there because as far as I could tell, the MW4 model didn't have any vents.
In this photo, I wanted to demonstrate that the 'mechs arm can rotate
The arms were cleverly designed, allowing the cables to flow around the skeleton of the arm and the pneumatic ram. The ram does work and the guns can move up and down
I left one hatch open so the insides can be partially seen. Below is the ammo chute for the missile launcher.
Looking straight down at the ammo chute and shoulder assembly.
Looking straight down into the cockpit. The canopy was made using bondo and the clear plastic found on toy packaging
I thought the layering for the back of the missile battery was pretty clever on how they were done.
To make the missile batteries, I used a sheet of PVC plastic and cut out all of the hexes, I made tubes for the "spent" missile launchers, and the pieces I cut out were reshaped and glued back into place.
The maintenance hatch again, you can see the coolant tanks in the back.
Looking straight into the cockpit.
As I said earlier, the original design lacked vents, so I used older Timberwolf references and turned this vague shape into a vent.
Looking straight down into the hatch. It's a shame, there is a lot of details that cannot be seen, such as the power distributor and the upper column of the power plant.
There was originally two rows of lettering, but I accidentally made the stencil too big and have one row instead. I didn't want to redo this so I left it alone.
The underside, where you can see the power plant heat exchange vent, and the gyro vent.
I had no references for the cockpit, so I used references from Vietnam era airplane cockpits and ejection seats, I also had to get inventive for some of the other details.
It took me a full day to take a cheap "made in china" one dollar action figure, and turn him into a Mechwarrior. He needed a razor, sandpaper, a lot of wood filler and a good paint job, to become the man he is today.
That's all. I hope you enjoyed it.
