Realistic Assault Mech . Since I now have little girls in my house, and legos are a choking hazard, I've started using LDD for my creations. It has been a real learning process. Here is one of my first builds that I feel comfortable showing to others. . The general design and construction method is inspired by builders like Brian Kescenovitz and Danny Morgan. Though this is not quite as grand as their work, I love the look of their mechs and I have learned a lot from them. I consider it the culmination of my 'realistic mech' series. It features a main battle gun, like a tank, centered in the torso, and allowed to pass through, so as to minimize recoil. It would be dangerous for an object balanced on two legs to tip over with excess recoil. Armament also includes four hellfire missiles on the shoulder racks, cluster rockets (like a helicopter gunship) in the right and left torso, an eye tracking nose mounted machine gun for anti-personnel work (also like a helicopter gunship), and a series of heavy machine guns in the arms. The gunner sits in the torso and would have control of the torso rotation and arms for aiming. The pilot sits with a view of the ground so as to better pilot in rough terrain and to avoid disorientation when engaged in complex maneuvers. Though this model was built to be quite pose-able, LDD is not very cooperative in this regard. The torso can, of course, rotate, the arms are able to move freely, the legs joins are all based on a friction lock on a lightsabre rod. Now that I look at all the pictures, I think it is a little too monochromatic, but I'd be glad to hear your opinions in the comments section.
