Padawan Tyler’s Longbow Mech!
Who’s brave enough to pilot a pink ‘mech?
This model started as a Ban Dai 1/100 scale kit from the Macross series. It is a Missile Phalanx Destroid, now converted into a BattleTech 3025 Universe ‘mech, known as a ‘Longbow’. (The model is a LGB-OW variant of the standard design, dropping all secondary weapons in favor of more speed.)
This was the third model I completed. I wanted to experiment with different color combinations. As well as trying out different weathering applications and techniques using MIG Powders.
I was going for the “been to hell, and not quite back yet” look. It certainly does look like it’s been ‘outside the wire’ far too long.
I also wanted to try out some new materials for the hex base, I used Foam Coat on the hex base to make a tarmac/freeway look to it. Kind of like a CityTech game piece.
Now, what’s next?……
