Ive never been a fan of the Quickdraw Battlemech, it always seemed to be one of the designs that Duanne Loose sorta just phoned in.
It wasnt until I saw this painting by Alex(flying debris)Iglesias that it made sense to me, and I needed to build one. I started with a few drawings, trying to make sense of it. The proportions and
dimensions, but it didnt take long for me to start cutting plastic.
I did make a few changes to the original. For example, the miniature has the lamest looking jump jet system
so I improvised and came up with this version.
Also, the original feet were so lame, big block feet.
Since this was Alex inspired I tried to make the feet look like one of his designs. As you can see from the above photo the feet are pretty obscured so I copied as best I could the feet on his new Jenner.
There a few details left to do, some panel lines,
the hoses on the arms and those antenna things.
All in all, Im pretty damn happy with it.
So here it is in 1/60 scale.
