I'll just echo everyone else here, those are all very impressive. It's one of those things that any BT fan would be proud to own. Sadly you arent selling them (due to copyright reasons I assume), If you were I doubt you could keep up with the demand!

Thanks Sampson, there are a number of reasons copyright included.
They cant be mass produced and each one takes many many hours of work, the detailing part of the builds takes as long as the basic structure to complete.
I did gift one to a clanmate, who stuck by me in MW4 through thick and thin, and as a tribute to our friendship i built his favourite mech (the vulture you see above)
But it was a nervous week of tracking the parcel from australia to where he lives, they are fragile , to sit on one would be to destroy it beyond repair. His arrived ok but it was packed in solid polystyrene etc.
Im also my biggest critic of my work, and while its evolved over the years to a standard that i'm happy with, i am still uncomfortable with the idea of taking money for what to my eye is never "perfect" , each of these photos is one of 20 or more taken at a time. only those that really show off the "art" and look good are chosen for posting at sites like this.
In addition after the hours that go into them, parting with them is very hard to contemplate, imagine these were sitting on your shelf.... could you send them away ?
I must acknowledge a degree of selfishness and desire to keep them once they are built
I would love nothing more than to be able to produce these to share en-masse with fellow fans

But for now, the best i can offer is to share the portraits i take.

I've built scratch made ships of my own design in my younger days. I know how much work and passion it takes to make such a thing. I applaud your skill and dedication to your craft.

Thanks People, i wish i could make them for sale, but for reasons outlined earlier i cant.
They vary in size depending on the tonnage, theres a pic of the Atlas next to a plastech (lead type) figure posted above which will give you an idea

That's amazing! How big are these models? (I'm afraid the plastech scale is lost on me) They look to be 8-10 inches tall or so?
Another bonus of these pics is that for folks doing CGI stuff there's invaluable lighting reference here.

Hi I made my first large scale mech recently. The slow trickle MW5 of news both gave me a taste for MW again and a need to pass the time. I happened upon the http://www.mechwarrior3.org paper craft forums where one guy was building them out of styrene (plastic card).

I picked my Fav looking mech (Thor) using the MC2 model with the idea to adapt it to a MC2/MW4/Cannon crossbreed below is the result below as painted in Nicolai Malthus(from the b'tech cartoon) red/caution scheme and Clan Jade Falcon colours. It stands in at 23cm or just over 9inchs tall

I'm now working on building a MW4 Hunchback

Thanks Talieson, the Atlas is about 8 inch's tall, The Templar in the pic below is about 6.5 inch's tall

Wow, that building is a model too? I thought it was a forced perspective shot of ruins. Very cool.

Nice mechs, you really have a talent on making these things, they are so nice. :)
Can I ask which other mechs do you have (if there are any)?
I would really like to see something from the era we will be playing in like Centurion, or some other mech.

Thanks, i was lucky enough to get my hands on some old architect building models a long time ago, some in scale with the lead figures, some in close enough scale with the larger models.

I do have some of the plastic kits that were available in the 80s, a thunderbolt, shadowhawk griffin and various stingers wasps and lams etc.
