V-1.5, if you prefer. A response to certain comments and some personal feelings of my own.
About this creation
I like it better now.
No, this is not a variant or field modification; I'ma gonna be pulling a retcon and saying it's always been like this.
The old page will remain up, however, both to show the old version and for anyone who might want the backstory.
Anyone who is not totally blind will be able to see the major changes in this image.
Namely, I added some shoulder plates.
It looks much better now.
Oh, and the camera/spotlight on the left side is an addition that is not quite as noteworthy.
Opening of the torso, part one.
Opening of the torso, part two.
I would like to point out that standing on the head of ones mount like this is a very dangerous move, especially if power to the neck actuators is turned off.
You never know when the thing will give way.
The last time I tried this, the pic came out too dark.
The flash is here to fix that.
I even have a white part behind the trans-red 1x2, but it didn't show up well in the old picture.
Elsewhere on the interwebs, it was asked what the back looked like. I'll have it known that the back of a Jaguar is one of the blandest things in existence, certainly not worth writing home about.
On the upside, it's relatively sturdy and a lot less fragile than an all-snot body would be.
Actually, it's technically all SNOT as is, but you know what I mean.

Nice adjustments. The shoulder plates added a load of difference. I would have never guessed the pilot went in backwards...Can't be good for his spine. Anyhow, nice work!
Thanks. Oh, it's fine for his spine; when closed, the torso segment his back rests against is vertical. If anything, it's bad for his eyes, which are also the reason he goes in backwards; that red segment represents the optical system that transmits the information from the 'eyes' of the machine into his eyes, along with ammunition information and system status, including armour damage. In theory, if he had eyes in the back of his head, he could go in in a more traditional manner, but the cockpit's not made for that. Very damaging to one's anatomy.
How convenient. Think of it this way: I don't know who you are, I don't care who you might be pretending to be, I don't know what you think, I don't really care, I don't have any interest in anything you may have built now or in the furure and if I get another worthless comment from you I am deleting it.
This is pretty good Arteetsa, but yo defitnitly need some flat and slated plates.
overall good design though, nice on the legs.
4/5 Your creations do resemble teabaggers though, I'm not saying I thing you are TEA! But I can kindoff see why people would say so.
dali is being so crazy.. i meant im sorta his friend... but hes being really mean right now... BTW this moc is cool but you NEED some better plating... 1x1 slant peices... but guys just look at the design its very good... thats y i give it 5/5! congrats teabagger (JUST KIDDING ABOU TEABAGGER)
