I still need to test build it, but this is what my sleep deprived mind came up with tonight.
It uses alot of existing components. The body is a chopped up and rescaled terra force Tank chasis and rebuilt turret. I'm not certain the turret will work as is. If worse comes to worse I have some Killer Kan and Dreadnaught parts I worked up a long time ago I can jam in there.
The Top parts are recolored from a Robo Bug model I found in the paper Makit's Member's forum. I'm not certain who the original author is
The guy on the left is a recolor of one of DarkMook's guys I'm using for scale reference.

Thank you for the kind words.
I wanted it kinda chunky and lumbering. It should look like it can a hit. The arms are above the treads so they don't snag on anything.
The Terminator T1 was my inspiration. I wanted something that fill the same roll as a T1 scaled for my miniatures collection.
NOTE: The torso is facing the rear in that pic.
After I finish this one though I do have plans for making more robots, and now that I have the idea in my head for a sleeker more agile version I'll take thos suggestions and apply them to a future model.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
