Day Three: Exoskelettkleinpanzer Ausf-G 'Valkyrie'
This week: 7 variations on the Kleinpanzer frame. Number three is the improved Exoskelettkleinpanzer, introduced in May 1942.
About this creation






A number of faults were found in the Ausf-A, including a lack of head protection, bullet traps in the shoulders and flanks, faulty attachment clips and unacceptably thin armour on the legs and rear. A number of new models were created, and while most of them were just misleading designations for minor updates, eventually they got correlated into the Ausf-G, which was the first Exoskelettkleinpanzer model to go into full production.

Really, there's only so much to say about this one. It's the one that started it all, it's bright red, and it's resistant to anything less than an anti-tank rifle.



Except on the back. The back is technically similarly armoured, but in practice it's got the engine there, which isn't protected at all.



Also some minor ergonomic changes to make it gender-neutral, because it turns out that avoiding backlash for having a women-only military unit in the 1940s is rather difficult.

Quoting Hugh Jass just built it! Do you mind if i will post instructions for others on my account?
You can if you want. I don't think it's that complex, but I've been wrong before.

Quoting David Stockholm My favorite one to date, can't wait to see what the next one will be. Any way I could pry some instructions from you? Even just a quick partial disassembly would be helpful.
I'm currently on Day Six. And, well, instructions: make a pile of all the 1x1 SNOT bricks you have; headlight bricks, travis bricks, etc. Then start putting them together in various configurations until you find the single combination that allows you to have a head on the top and 1x1 plates on the back, sides and front, with a pneumatic T piece sticking out the bottom.

I love this. I've seen this hardsuit from you, but I'll tell you I love it simply for the helmet.

Nice design, and the helmet complements the chubbiness very nicely (... it IS meant to be chubby, right?).

Quoting Danny Morgan I really like this one. Where is that helmet from? (what set)
One of the old Knights Kingdom minifig sets. I'm not sure which one, but the guy in question was redder than a Starfleet away team so he shouldn't be too hard to spot.

Number three look very good. As the always say, when in a line of work in which you may suffer grievious injury, red is always an appropriate color choice. Great work! ^Blub^

Quoting Timmy Kid Excellent! But it lost one head because of a grammar mistake. When it says "Day Two:" it says it again THEN it shows the link to Day Two's model. If you fix that, I'll come back and give it the fifth head.
Whoops.

I love the claw on the wrist, and the MP-40 design. The exoskeleton itself is great to begin with.
