Looking through some old pics of mine I came across a few photos I made of my old mecha models. Mainly my Warhammer 40k eldar dreadnaught and my VF-1a from Macross/Robotech.
So I thought why not make a new pic thread for mecha models.
 
Feel free to post your own, here are mine.

With some other toys from Macross/Robotech:
 

 
And this one alone from Robotech/Macross:
 

 
Batletech/Mechwarrior stole this design for their own. I think that's one of the big reasons mecha is thought off as so improbable in Western fiction- this design was made for a fictional world where there are giant humanoid aliens and this mecha had to move around inside a huge spaceship designed for those scale of creatures as well as battlefields fighting against them, it was never meant to be a tank replacement on normal battlefields.

A picture of my favorite mecha.  But it's not a model.  M60A3TTS tank.  
Second favorite, still not a model.  M1 Abrams.  That's not some cool sand overspray scheme that is road dust.

A model of a comic book tank.  The M3 Stuart “Haunted tank” from DC's GI Combat. (The model is only 2 1/2 inches long)

One of the ugliest tanks ever:  The Valentine mk. XI

M901 Hammerhead ITV.  The bumper codes indidcate that it's from 50 the Armored Division 1/102 armor battalion headquarters company.  I was in company B or bravo and there's my screen name.
