This mech is great! I can figure out the arms and legs (have them in LDD) but cannot get the body or lower rear grill to work.

I'm proud of this guy, there's lots to be proud of.

It's cheap to build, quite configurable, and looks great on the battlefield.

I present: the Gutbucket.

If you don't want to work up both variants, I prefer the Gutbucket support (left), because of its Macrossey/Spartan roots.

Gutbucket Support
2d6 + d8 Red Artillery - withering rocket pods
d6 Blue - ECM backpack
d6 Yellow - Comms

Gutbucket Trooper
2d6 Red Ranged - Autocannon
2d6 Red HtH - Ripsword
d6 Yellow - Comms

@Darcy Burgess
I can do those little guys easy. Those are great! I would love to have a set of rules for really small mecha like this where you might field 50 on a side. Battles that wage over a whole city, not a peach delivery truck with a flat tire. I still like my base idea for such a game. Each mech can take one action on its turn. "Move" or "shoot" or "capture objective" or whatever other abilities mechs might have in that game. So the game goes quickly.

I know nothing about Ldraw, so if you could work out my KNight Frame and possibly the variants that'd be pretty awesome.

KNight Frame


KNight Brute Variant


KNight Tank Variant


KNight Flight Variant


Knight Multiped Variant

I would love to know how to build this guy:

Here is the whole gallery (you have different variations and models):

Well I hope I'm not stealing your thunder, I mean no offence, but here is a (no so pretty) LDraw file for the . I only did one of them (it was late) and I ran in to some limitations of my knowledge of MLCad. But you can clearly use this to constuct the model. Let me know what you think.

I just looked over the gutbucket pics again!

The gutbucket trooper is missing two parts!

It needs two 1x1 plate, round added onto its back. It looks much better with.

Crater Corporation Mech completed. I have edited the first post in this thread with links to the LDraw file and a PDF of step-by-step instructions.

Wow. All I've been able to look at is the PDF, I'll have to look at the other later. But wow. That is awesome. The internal framework is different than what I was trying. As I said I couldn't figure it out. And I'll have to build it to see if it fits what I've already built. But the "wow" is the amaizing PDF - I'm sure this is the quality we're getting in the MFZ book, and that totally rocks!!

Very nice work!

And I believe this is the kind of work needed to make MFZ mainstream, if people can't build these great frames, why play? I know I wouldn't play if I was limited to the frames I can design and build (because they suck).

Thank you, Wordman!

Wordman,

this might not be cool to ask, and I might just have to wait for the official materials, but I really would love one of the Hi-leg. I have had issue figuring that mech and more importantly am trying to invest in pieces to add to my collection of old mechaton pieces. So would appreciate it, but if it's not cool, or it is lame to count against the frame limit you are posting here then please don't do it.

OK, lots to say.

1) Your LDraw file is for professionals. There is stuff in there I don't understand but I'm glad I have it to learn from. For most people though the hidden legs and arms might be difficult. I would have liked all the steps in one file, but I also want to learn to make better LDraw files.

2) To get to the arms and legs use the File>Export function. You'll get files that make up the arms and legs. How to get all those steps in one file I don't know.

3) The 1x2 plate that is upside down does not fit in real life/in the brick.

4) The brick with 2 studs is an innovative change to the takafashii frame this is based on, which uses two travis bricks. The freewheeling (not connected) 1x1 round plates is also not expected and very cool.

5) Malcolm_Craig (the designer) could weigh in on all this. I'm afraid he doesn't have this constuction anymore. Perhaps seeing it like this might trigger some memories. And, one word on that, this frame is just brilliant.

6) I wonder if there is not a 1x1 plate attached to the 1x2 plate with one stud? Something in the photos seem to make the nose stick out farther than this design.

All in all this is wonderful! This makes it much easier for people to build this great frame. And adds another great frame to the MFZ universe!!

Thank you for doing this!!
