I'm panicking a bit now Fabian, my internet is through a mobile phone and every now and then it goes down for a few days at a time, or chaotically intermittent, frustrating as hell !! [frown]

Anyhow thankyou dude glad you like, just posted my finished Kugel Spatz too [smile]

Ok now I have proved that I have completed these models I can relax a touch, hope the net will keep going for me [smile]

Cheers Ted, glad you like [smile]

A true winner - one more :-). Great work Paul with amazing detail. Very cool that you managed to make those legs moveable. You nailed the insect look mate!

Thanks again chaps, makes the staying up all night to get the pics uploaded all the more worth while [smile]

I am dog tired though, the last couple of weeks have been busy sleepless but worth it to get all three across the finishing line, just [biggrin]

Thought it might be nice to leave the concept drawings for this build here [smile]
my initial thoughts were to another aircraft type but then I went all mecha on it [biggrin]

Wow mate this came out really nicely !

The design is fantastic and I think you have really captured the ww2 period feel with both the overall look and also the paint scheme but the thing that has really caught my eye the more I look at it is that the engineering of it looks totally believable, everything you have added looks like it has a purpose but more than that it looks like it could scamper about spider fashion at any minute.

Can just see a regiment of these crawling over the battlefield letting rip with that huge nose cannon, awesome stuff Paul.

Looks great on the base and really nice pictures too.

Pete

Edit :

Looking at those pics again it's articulated isn't it ?

Major respect given

Pete

Cheers hugely chaps [biggrin]

Yeah, Pete fully articulated with working telescopic rods etc. each leg has 4 axises of movement [smile]
I'll upload some more pics demonstrating the range of movement available as well as a video so one can see it in action as the stills don't quite capture how they move [smile]

Someone suggested "Spinne Kannone" as a name which I really like as it's German for Spider Cannon [smile]
Regarding the engineering look of it that was a necessary by product of it being full articulated as it has to actually work etc.
the main cables are there to hold the legs in position as they are quite stiff but bendable wires to facilitate supporting its own etc.
but also add to the functional look as those hydraulics needs feeding somehow [biggrin]

The elevators on the back are attitude controls for when it jumps as it is a jumping Mecha and when traveling through the air it needs to be able to control what angle it lands at, at the back is a thruster to extend the range of the jump, the legs can twist forward to create a crude wing which also helps to flatten out the jump thereby extending it a little further, it would not be able to fly but it could probably maintain a 2 to 1 glide ratio (2 meters forward for every meter dropped), which for a glider, or indeed any flying machine is just terrible but then it is a jumping mech not an aircraft [biggrin], even a helicopter without and engine can do at least a 4 to 1 glide ratio, a typical light aircraft Cessna etc. can do 10/15 to 1 and a top notch glider can get above a 50 to 1 ratio, just to put that notion into some perspective, but now I am waffling over a theoretical maybe over a fictional vehicle haha [biggrin]
But I do like to think about these things when designing stuff as it all helps I guess anyhooooo.......... [biggrin]

More pics and video to come,
but thanks again guys, glad you like it [smile]

Finally a decent bit of sun !!
so some more photos, please note that no extra work has been done and is exactly as it was on June the 30th when it was completed and all that jazz, and besides I'm burnt out after the three week frenzy leading up to that deadline [smile]

Anyhow, I feel the earlier pics didn't really capture the range of articulation of the legs so I figured some more pics were in order ....
