When I was growing up, I always liked mechs and Mech Warrior. So when I was looking around for the latest news to bring you all this little paper craft custom by Leo Firebrand caught my eye. Seeing it made me feel all nostalgic and it reminded me that I don't own any real Macross or Batttletech model robots. Something I need to remedy one of these days.
This custom is based on a free to play video game called Hawken. I don't really recommend people get into free to play video games unless they really enjoy them, though; for some reason these have drained my wallet of more money than most regular games.
The model itself is well designed. It is cool to see a new robot that takes me back to my roots so easily. Also while I am sure this custom is made of really sturdy paper, it is impressive to see what can be done in papercraft form. This thing has wires and weapon pods galore. The detailing looks realistic enough that if someone told me it was sculpted plastic I would believe them without hesitation.
Leo did a really good job on this custom as he does on most of his work. If you want to see more of what he does, you should check out his blog here. Personally, I can't wait to see what he comes up with next.
