Jackdaw Frame

Postby VitorFaria » Sat Mar 09, 2019 11:51 am

After a brief study of the Brikwars community and how they build their own mecha, I decided to experiment with the concept of an "army-build-able" minifig scale frame.

Ignoring the greebles, and assuming you also have a ton of those 90's style canopies like I happen to have. You can build a few of those without depleting your parts.

The leg joints are simply two pairs of Mixel ball and sockets, on hips and ankles, and a pair of hatchet plates for the reverse knees. So not more than your average 7p chicken-walker.

Looks cool! Bet it could easily face my Mega Reaper frame! How well do the legs balance, though? They look a bit thin.

Thanks!

It actually balances super great, it's way lighter than it looks, as the cockpit is mostly hollow.

The legs are thin, but they are solid plate-on-plate all the way, thus considerably heavier than anything else in the build, rendering it very stable.
