Midi-scale AT-ST
As promised, here's a detailed post of my midi-scaled AT-ST from the Endor diorama.
About this creation
I consider this one of my greatest walkers ever, and I think you'll agree. I've put in more detail and poseability than the official LEGO version, at half the size. The hardest part was the cockpit; due to the limitations of the three-wide core, I had to drop the slight inward slope of the side walls in favor of a more accurate side view. So, while it looks awesome from the side, the front does look a little off. I'm not really happy with the leg design, so I might revisit this MOC. I think the photos turned out really nice here, too.

Why choose Legoarts?
Armament

Mounting two blaster cannon, two light laser cannon, a concussion launcher, and dual fence-cutters, our All Terrain Scout Transport is just as formidable as it's larger LEGO cousins.



Stability

Our AT-ST features fully articulated legs, 'head', and weaponry, all mounted on a strong, correctly angled gyroscopic array for thousands of accurate, stable poses.

Detail
From the correctly angled gyroscopic array and windows to the hatch and air recycling fans, we've packed detail into this scout transport. In fact, our walker is just over half the size of the official LEGO one, yet contains more detail.




Scale:

Our walker is correctly scaled to the size of 3-stud high midi-figs.




More Pics:



Apparently, my photo skills have vastly improved, because I was able to get enough of the background solid white so that I could turn it transparent and make this cool blueprint:

micro at-rt's arten't that hard. ;-) I can see how the 3-wide base could be difficult to work with, but it worked beautifully in the Endor dio. It still looks good by itself, and I like all the detail you got in. All in all very excellent work.

Quoting Kir Kanos Kalinka Good, but the bottom of the head where the guns are is to abrupt a transition to the guns. The brick should go around them like the previous AT-AT set that was released by itself.
I know. But, like I said in the post, with a three-wide cab, it was a choice between an inward slope of the side-walls or a forward slope of the front wall. Since a square side wall would look ridiculous, and because the design was easier to build, I arrived at the walker you see here.

Quoting Brickdoctor - Brady G., will you still comment if I make an AT-RT? :-P
No. You would be exiled from the order of MOCpages and forever called an abomination by all builders of the light side. :3 Yes, but it'd be hard to beat your older ones.
Luckily for you, I just realized that if minifig-scale AT-RTs are near impossible, anything smaller is insane.

Dang! You beat me to it! I was planning on making some midi-scale builds starting with an AT-ST, but...I agree with you on the legs. I would try making them studs-up using hinge plates (or bricks) for the joints. i think you could pack more detail into the legs that way. Anyway, this is an AWESOME build! I love the details in the head.

Oh yes! I think the use Aurbesh gives it more of a blueprint feel

Are you addicted to using aurebesh? Also, do you have the font? Great job on the moc!

If its diferent from most AT-RTs, then yes. But Im sure no one has made a midi AT-RT before...

Glad I could help, and Im looking forward to more midi scale vehicles from you.

Quoting Juan C. Very nice, and I agree that this is your best walker, the attention to detail is outstanding, but I only have one complaint: the eyes are a bit big, using a 1x1 under those cheese slopes might fix that, if you plan on using it in the future, for something like a Hoth diorama.
Good idea. I don't plan on making a Hoth diorama, because Brickplumber's already built a virtually unsurpassable one. (I mean really, I'll never convince my parents to give me $10,000 to use on LEGO) I deal more in the vehicular area.

Quoting Brady G And- correction. Midifigs are 3 BRICKS high. 9 studs, I believe.
My bad. Actually, one stud high is the height of one brick, unless you're dealing with SNOT, it which case one stud is one stud. Just like LDD lists a 2x4 brick as 2x4x1, and a plate as 2x4x1/3. So I would say, "Midifigs are 3 studs high, or 9 plates high".

Quoting Erik C. I love the techniques used on this.If you compared it with the midi-scale falcon,either your at-st has got to be smaller or the falcon has got to be bigger.Overall,great moc.
Midi-scale is really anything smaller that minifig and larger that mini, and I wasn't really going for a specific scale, just one that looked right in the forced-perspective Endor dio.
