I'm a french guy, so I appologize for my bad english.
I finally decided to refund my legos (stock in my garage) and starting trying to rebuild this incredible war machine, wanzer (DEU's WANderung panZER) code name :
ZENITH also world wide known as ZENISLEV.
This isn't the minifig pilot, just for size comparison.. Wanzer Equiped with 2x4 grenades lounchers
First of all, I wanted to precise that I WANTED a little size mech composed by a Frame and Armor parts. Not a final aspect but a real assembling process, which will be accomplished in a mech bay by engeneers.
Notice : If you didn't intersting by FRAME jump directly to ARMOR or WEAPONS chapters. let's have a look :
For my frame, all I need was a bike..
The frame unpainted. As you can see I use the bike for the cokpit, which gives me empty slots for the head, the arms & the legs. It's my principal part
I also use an technic suspension bar, which allows flexibility for the shoulder's mouvements
It hold on perfectly
The waist & legs
Finally the arms
The frame : the cokpit is defined (under the head : in the wheel space), now I had to find a pilot..
A technic chair..
for the torso armor !
Stand up before painting
Like this it looks like an LDD build..
All armors parts off
The frame 1/2 ajusted with armor parts
All armor parts on
Real colors shot
I can equiped him with 3 levels of weapons : low, midlle, heavy :
Equiped with low weapons : Bone Breaker / Rifle Gun / Light double cannon
Equiped with Mmiddle weapons : BB / RG / Left & Right shoulders amovible rockets launchers (up)
Equiped with middle weapons : BB / RG / Left & Right shoulders amovible rockets launchers (down)

Miscellaneous of all the part I'm particulary proud have to use.
That's all, thanks for watching (sorry for some drakness pics).
You can see the firts trys of the ZENITH in my second "creation" or directly by following this link bellow :
Aaah, un bon mech bien sympa comme je les aime ! Ce qui est vraiment cool, c'est que tu as pris la peine de détailler l'élaboration originale de la structure de ton MOC, ce que peu de gens font ici, sans compter les multiples modes de combat qui satisferont largement les amateurs de mechs. Alors keep on building :)
Wow! You really put a lot of work into this one, and it shows. It looks really good! I made another version of the zenith, though it is still tall and skinny, but is a bit closer to what is found in the games than the other one you saw:
