WWI “Sandpiper” Recon Walker
About this creation
Conceived as a more nimble alternative to tanks for crossing the trenches that dominated the western front, the Sandpiper actually found it’s calling on the vast plains of the east.

Originally designed for frontline combat, the spindly frame proved unable to support the armor required for such a role. It was stripped down and converted for recon duty on the shifting lines of the eastern front.

Introduced late in the conflict, it never the less proved a highly effective scout vehicle, able to traverse the most difficult terrain, and capable of surprising speed in open countryside. The Sandpiper was equipped with a state of the art wireless radio and a .303 caliber machine gun, used primarily for defensive purposes.


























































































































Well there’s your problem…there’s no hole in the barrel!

In fact……it doesn’t appear to have any moving parts what so ever. It’s just a solid billet. How are you going to shoot anything with that?

I guess you could use it as a club or something…

Very nice! the design is about as organic as you can get while still titling it a machine/mech...I love the feet especially. One quick question-how do you photograph your MOCs so nicely? i build similar creations, but am never able to properly photograph them. Now that I've discovered MOCpages (Well...not exactly discovered-more like decided to join) I need to know how to properly photograph MOCs. If you can help, that would be great. Once again...fantastic MOC!

This might sound stupid, but was a vehicle like this actually used or is this a figment of your imagination?

I was wondering if the elastic bands do anything( other than make it look cool, of course) ?

Quoting mr. grunty its awesome, but i honestly doubt germans could make that.
If anyone could have, it would have been the Germans.~H

This is supposed to be a family site, you know ;) I remember seeing this baby awhile back on brickshelf or something and falling in love with it. I love how its got that quick and dirty middle of a war feel, but was pulled off with such attention to detail. Beautiful mech, good sir!

Wow this is definitely one of my favorite mocs now. Great job. I can really imagine this one running throught the battlefields ambushing enemy squads with lightning speed and running back to safety.

When I first saw this a few months ago, I was in absolute shock...and I still am! The layout of the frame is genius; the combination of old technology and unseen ideas makes this what it is. These would have been quite useful in WWI. C ya~ElNickre

"Great, I'll take it!...Wait, how do I get in?"-lol. Awesome work on the design, sort of reminds me of the two legged walkers in the old Star Wars movies.

Not quite sure what Ocean was on when he wrote that review... (for those not paying attention, Ocean and I are friends and jab at each other all the time) Anyway, K, I don't care if it looks like an AT-ST or scout walker or whatever... it's brilliant! the "ropes" really give it its unique design and character. Excuse me while I go build a shrine to your greatness. (that was not meant to be sarcastic, If I had the time I probably would) I could go through the thesaurus to come up with a better word but the simple ones usually do the job... Nice! Later ~ Chris.

Definitely one of the most creative mechs I've ever seen, I love the 'thrown-together' look and the rubber bands give it a unique touch. The exposed mechanics are a definite plus and make it even more appealing.

this is a very good mecha and i like the use of cogs, wheels and a elastic bands and the good space where the man sits but all you need now is a ladder for it unless you already have one because i whizzed through the pictures but the man looks i bit wierd he looks crossed between a tuskan raider and a german in WW1.

Very nice, It looks polished, and professional; as always. I like how you used rubber binders to kind of make it look more primitive.

Innovative use of jousting equipment -check. General awesomeness -check. I could go on like this for hours, but that would be a little tedious... I wonder where you got your knee-joints though, I've never seen them before and they look useful.

Great MOC, I like this. You made the pulleys on the legs and the rubber band wrapped around the antenna look very realistic and convincing.

By far one of the best walkers of any kind on MOC pages. I dont know if all of the strings and rubber bands actually make the walker move, but they are placed very convincingly to look as though they are actually controlling the walker.

Perhaps you could redo the machine gun to appear more like the 303 Maxim. Very cool indeed.

This is great, the detailing is perfect. The leg chains, motor, machine gun, and flood light are ridiculously awesome.

This has to be the most original walker I've ever seen. And the most appealing aspect is that it doesn't have any fancy special features, only truly eye-boggling detail and practicality. I wouldn't be surprised if this got MOC of the day one day.

Ahh, now this is something I like. It combines The Great War with steampunk-esq mechanics, something that is quite difficult to execute. The Sandpiper has a fantastic shape and look, and an excellent back story (Wireless radios FTW!). Excellent work as usual!
