MonoStomper
...when there is more Punk than Steam...
About this creation
Did you ever wonder how a steampunk mecha could look like? Did you also think that 2 legs are just too much?

The MonoStomper, created by an engineer who forgot about basic physic's laws existence, is more than unique. Towering above enemies, and madly hopping, it must look rudicilously in battle... until the HammerFall.

   MonoStomper, altough almost nobody will look at this from such point of view. The whole machine is more than 10 metres tall.

   From the side. Gray "pipe" thingy with a hinge is only a stabiliser, which is not rigid - so the leg springs nicely.

   Whoever would like to drive such a machine would have to be permamently immune to sea sickness. Altough jumps are not harsh - I imagine that it would move rather smoothly, constant level changes will do the job. Crew, if not using weapons, is only 1 person, who controlls the movement. Second crewman in the pod controlls rotating firespiller, and the hammer.

   Actually, the black pins under the foot are not necessary. The model can stand only on gray fingers, but for jumping it around the desk I needed to install the pins. Simply - fingers hold on only 2 studs each, and this is not strong enough.

   Something is going to be more flat than usual...

   ...fortunately it was just a shot in the ground (an equivalent of shooting in air). The hammer has very nice horizontal range When leaned and on full length, it could reach almost 2x farther.

   This is what you see from the ground.

looks really good, i dont really like the colors (too much gray, and not enough black) but thats not a good enough reason not to like it :D ... check out my steam punk mech in the near future (im working on its legs)

Nice Steampunk MOC, I'm a big fan of steampunk (though I havent built anything in the genre yet). Since you like steampunk I'd thought I'd send you an invitation to my forum: http://s3.phpbbforfree.com/forums/index.php?mforum=corramann We can use another excellent builder on it, thanks

Oh wow...I can just imagine a whole bunch of these jumping around crushing a village. VERY unique design, especially the workings for the leg :D
