Traveler Class Light Frame

Postby VitorFaria » Mon Aug 28, 2017 10:24 pm

One frame that definitely needs more love is the Mechaton 5th gen, by Vincent himself.

Took inspiration from it's main body shape and threw some Soren-style joints on it, and the Traveler was born!

Of course, couldn't resist using the Classic Space scheme again.

I really,
and I mean really,
dig the simplicity and form of those legs.
Awesome. Also, very cute little arms and great build overall! The shoulder armor is really interesting. Great job!

Thanks a lot, Aardvark!

Simplicity was an overall theme with this guy, so I could focus on the general base frame. Now I'm planning some variations on top of it.

This frame is really bare bones simplicity and I love it :)

Although because of the frames size would you have to scale down the playing field?

Thanks!

It is short, but not that short. It has roughly the same height as some of my earlier frames, like the ST-01 Classic and Salticidae. Those don't look out of place in a standard 7p game, as you can see in some of my battle reports.

Decided to experiment with some systems for the Traveler.

It sorta gave me a peaceful vibe, probably because of the space colors, so I decided to give it nothing way too aggressive looking. Ironically I ended up building them black with trans yellow highlights which brings it closer to Blacktron style.

Now those are some good systems. It's incredible how cool this guy looks with those simple yet very effective weaponry.
That drone! It's like 5 or so pieces yet it looks SO GOOD! And the boosters are 3 pieces and yet also just as awesome, great use of that gun piece.
I'm impressed, Vitor.
Also, I continue to fall in love with the legs on this frame. Might have to build one myself.
I also really like the idea of a more peaceful, shaman-like frame with drones and a staff...
Awesome job Vitor, very well done.

This is a prime example of how basic can be so awesome! The shape and build of the frame is really cool, the colors 5 in total, all basic, are just blended so well, and now the weapons and boosters and this just rocks! Awesome job indeed :)

The drone is pretty cool too, fits perfectly the Light Frame.

Thanks for the kind words, Aardvark!

I'm also pretty happy with the leg in general, it's mostly a skinny version of the Chub leg, thou. Probably going to reuse it a lot in future frames.

Amazing how a simple color scheme swap can make the Traveler a hundred times more militaristic.

We could definitely use an army of these frames to help build sandbag defenses against Hurricane Irma that's coming.

And I echo that a simple color change can change the entire theme of a Frame. Well done indeed VitorFaria 8-)

Thanks, Artasid!

Good luck to all of you guys that will need to brace through another hurricane.

The frame is short and simple, just like I like them.

I really like the little details, like the arrangement of the tap pieces to look like neck pistons.
The LF-D5 "Stub" is the top of the line in agriculture frames, designed to haul heavy farm equipment. It is also easy to repair, with standardized connections between all joints. Buy one today.

Also, it's also quite cute on the battlefield....

Thanks! That's a neat detail most 3 wide Chub-like chest have, I'm happy to have it here.
