I decided to create a robot model of my own design. To do this I used spare parts from other models like airplanes and helicopters and combined them with scrap wood pieces. I used a dremel tool to cut and shape all the parts to fit together. Then I applied the best paintjob I could muster.
  I don't have a step by step tutorial because this project is basically just a demonstration of an idea. The idea is to use various scrap parts to make something. I chose a robot. You could make a vehicle or a prop or just a piece of art to display. What you use and what you make is entirely up to you.
well I didnt make your model but I used the same concept I built a mech of my own using some popsicle sticks and a plastic spoon I thought I was the only one who did this
Wow, this is an impressive model. I have a few broken Gundam and aircraft model kits laying around, so I may try something like this one day. Thanks for the idea!<br><br>I wish there were some close up shots so we could admire your wood-to-plastic joining skills.<br><br>I had a few questions:<br><br>What are the approximate measurements of your Mech? (height, width, etc.)<br><br>Is it stationary, or are the parts that can be moved to make different poses?<br><br>Would you know the approximate cost of this Mech Model?
Thanks for the compliments. As far as the model goes it is stationary, about 10&quot; tall and probably cost $20.00 to make. For joining the pieces I have two words, hot glue. <br> The model has been changed since these pics. It is now painted silver and moveable. It's joined together with mostly wood screws so I can modify the pose.
