    ATRAN - fictional mecha WIP

    Hello everyone,

    This will be a wip thread for my "scratch" build of ATRAN (Advanced Tactical Reconnaissance Autonomous Navigator). That's the best combo of words that I could come up with, for its name.

    For the base of the main body I'll be using Gillette's trimmer holder:



    For the hip joints I've decided to use deodorant spray caps:



    so basically those are the main parts that I'll be basing my build upon:



    For the basic structure of the legs, I've used 1.0 mm evergreen sheet. I'll need to add some detail to those, in order to get rid of the square shape:





    I thought using clothespin as feet would be a good idea, but it looks like the feet need to be a lot more beefier looking:







    So that's the basic look for now, hope to update soon with some more progress...

    Andrey.

    Wow, when you said scratch build you meant it! Now I want to see how you get rid of the outline of the parts to make them no longer look like a trimmer holder, the spray caps should be relatively easy.

    List of things to do today. 1. Get a sword. 2. Name it Kindness. 3 Kill people with Kindness.

    Re: ATRAN - fictional mecha WIP

    Hi guys,

    Thank you for the comments and the interest!

    I've made a bit of progress on the legs. Added some caps to act as "joints" and feet from evergreen sheet:




    Now my plan is to do some work on the "trimmer" body. I still don't have exact plans for it, but I'll figure something out. Will update as soon as I get some serious progress on the shape of the body.

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    Andrey.
