This is a Work in Progress of a new mech I'm building, this time utilizing the techniques I learned while building the APM Type 01 Beta.
About this creation
This time I'm building my own frame, primarily due to a lack of pieces and my unwillingness to destroy the APM Type 01 Beta. PSM stands for "Precision Strike Mecha" and -Z stands for Zeran, its name. It's going to utilize high capacity thrusters and light weapons making it extremely agile, as well as accurate. This one's going to be worth the wait. I'm employing everything I know about mecha building thus far into one masterpiece.
So... I finished the legs, then came up with a better way of doing them, which made them bigger... then i made the shoulders which ended up huge so i had to make the legs even bigger, then I had to make everything proportional... anyway, it ended up considerably larger than the standard izzo style mech...
PS: Being snowed in = great Lego -progress:
Size Comparison (the right is a typical Izzo style frame):
Shoulder Assembly (complicated...):
Back Mounted Thrusters:
Skirt with Thrusters:
Legs with thruster doors open:
But can it stand on it's own?
It basically commits suicide if I don't have it anchored to the baseplate and balanced JUST right... Oh well. On the plus side, I don't think I need further training in mech building. This is probably the greatest thing I've ever built. It's a shame, my camera is about 3 years old and isn't picking up the details I'm most proud of, but please don't hesitate to criticize, I'm eager to get better and any criticism is a good thing imo.
