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.

The is the Eldar Dreadnaught with his funky paintjob and dreadlocks:









Tiger Terminator Space Marine:



Same fellow ext to a very rough shadowsword tank I made from cardboard and bits of scrap:



Transforming VF-1A model kit, unfinished:











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.
