    Exclamation Titan Fall Mech Build 2014

    Hello All,

    After a long discussion with my self in the mirror and great response from several forum member of OSW. I am opening a new build from Titanfall video game. This is purely non production and as a artistic expression(covered by the first amendments followed by the second ).

    This is solely a bunch of guys and gals(?) to show off there talent.
    The figure (code Atlas) has to be in 1/6 scale (or close to/subject to artistic license)

    Any an all materials, data, images, late nights and spouse support or not, will be use to build the figure.

    Build can be create by self person, teams of 2 or more and from other countries.

    Of course no negative bashing (unless you deserve it) only positive criticism to support the build.

    I hope to have several individuals, (aheem flanela, sir flip flop ) to join in!

    I would leave the time frame open for those who have busy schedules but want to build.

    Good luck to all.

    Tony
    Los Angeles.

    it is now January 5th, 2014 pacific standard time!

    Err.. is this an open competition? I'm rather confussed.

    Hello All,

    Yes it is an open competition, talent share but no prize (unless you want one? kotm?koty?).
    I create the topic to see different collectors, builders and all around mad scientist to build a mech with different building styles.

    I am glad you chimed in.

    Ohh.. come on yankee, I thought I would be able to follow you doing such a feat ... despite being my thing, I"ll not have the patience and space to do something so big again ... but I hope that someone has the courage to do it!

    Hello Flanela,

    Thank you for the words of encouragement (i think), I have to figure out a way to move the figure around without breaking my back!
    Now where did I put my engine hoist?

    Adios

    Don't take this the wrong way but if you want this to be an open competition, you need to say so and set some guidelines, rules, a time frame and maybe a prize or two.

    KOTM or any such is OSW owned and operated so it would have to be independent of that. or at least call something else.

    Due to the nature of what you expect people to make, don't be surprised if you get no entries...due to the size and complexity of this type of vehicle, this would be beyond the average model builder/hobbyist. Those that could make one or would even attempt it have probably done so already.

    I think you should rethink what you are asking or build one yourself and keep a running post of your build.

    I think people are missing some of the humour in yankees posts. This is his build thread, but he is inviting other people to join in with their builds too if they want to take on the challenge. As far as his KOTM/KOTY mention is concerned, and I could be wrong, I think he might be meaning that might be your reason for starting a build like this.

    But some progress pics would really help clear things up, for me at least.
    I guess it's like when I was building my IM2 HAMMER Drone and asked others to make theirs too, sadly no one did, on the bright side I'm the only person I know of with a 1/6 IM2 Drone!

    Oh! It's the bot/mech from the X-box one advert! Cool! I bypass all that measuring/planning stuff myself, just makes it more daunting; doing it by eye stops you procrastinating and is often faster but that's just me, I'm odd.

    Hello Crusader1xxx,

    Thank you giving me the input and I take what you say in the most positive way in promoting OSW and all the forum members.

    The build is open to all, there are no guidelines, there is no time frame (unless the builder has one),
    there is no prize.

    Thank you Shovelchop81 and The Beginner Collector for your interest on the topic.

    Tony

    pics coming soon.

    Hello The Beginner Collector,

    Don't feel bad the weather is "cold, dark in No.California".
    Will contact a friend or two to take some pics if possible.

    Strange that the image did not come up?

    I saved it in the gallery then copy paste but no paste

    Open to ideas here

    I think you left the ".jpg" off at the end of the pic URL. It's partially hidden on the gallery page but double clicking it usually selects the whole thing.



    Nice start, getting the scale you want down will help solve a lot of problems later.
    I'd attempt one but I don't really like the designs. The troopers are neat though. Are you making the Ogre?

    Re: Titan Fall Mech Build 2014

    Hello Saiko,

    Thanks so much, I was going crazy last light trying to figure that out!
    Yes the principle design and shape is from the 1 to 1 scale poster, I used the ghost of the driver as the reference to evaluate the scale of the Atlas. *Photocopied and glue to foam board. Cut it out.
    I made the entire body but could not fit it all in my back pack. Yes I ride a Vespa!

    Awesome on the troopers, I keep thinking they have a Star Wars troopers look (visors) them.
    I will have to make some examples to see if they clear the door/hatch way.

    I will try first the Atlas and move onto the other Mechs Ogre/Stryker if I haven't lost my mind by then.

    Thanks again.
    Tony

    Good luck on your project Yankee.. when I have more time, I'll recycle some of my stuff and make a kind of small stryder.

    I'm not encouraging a larger build here, but that looks too small to me! Lol.

    That sounds great Flanela, I have been impressed with your builds and one things get slow, I am sure you can crank something out.

    The Beginner Collector, I have an idea about putting a seat inside with all the "bling bling", I will post some pics tonight.

    The torso has a barrel shape.
    It only has four fingers (yakuza)?
    It has no neck, really not like Joey No Neck he football player

    It doesn't like lentils.

    Re: Titan Fall Mech Build 2014

    That's pretty cool. The height feels right when you look at vids or the collector's edition statue.
    Man, I wish the collector's wasn't 250, GG i'm out.

    Good to see the hatch feels right, I have to cheat a little on my vehicle project, the hatches in 1/6 are too small/tight for a blocky figure to be pushed into easily since they can't 'wiggle' into the tight hatches like we can in real life.

    Thanks SSGStank, Saiko,

    Yep she is a big one, is it a she or he.

    Now the next step is to get some details of the under structure and how it moves.

    Will have to make something up, the legs and feet are going to be interesting to fabricate.
