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.
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.
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)
