A fun miniature conversion I did a while back using CAV Thunderbird arms on a Halberd torso. I never thought they'd work since the Thunderbird arms are so big, but after finding some suitable legs and feet - I thought it might actually work, and began hacking away. Cutting the larger RP cast Summoner/Hellbringer legs was a bear and a half, but otherwise this was a fun project.
Inspiration for the paint scheme came from Rammstein's Reise-Reise CD cover. I've been wanting to try a scheme based on that cover for a while, but this just seemed like a good mech to use it on.
Firepower comes from a pair of Snub-Nose Long Toms, (4) SRM 4's, (4) ER Smalls, (1) ER Med.

This is a 1/48 scale resin,and plastic kt. The turret,except the IR light,is the Tamiya M26. The body is resin from Gaso.Line. I also replaced the kit's 13mm machine gun with a metal .50 mg barrel. The color is Tamiya field blue. Archer Transfers are the lettering. The crew,commanded by Zod,have named this Mecha,Helena.
In the kneeling position,it stands a scale 16 feet tall. The rust on the exhaust is a mix of MIG Pigments. Russian earth and Vietnam red dust.
Space Pirates have some weird currency, but it is pure gold so what the hell do I care? Not that I got this stuff illegally, but I do carry my favorite blaster to keep my share..mine.
I hope you like the look of the nerf Element, it was painted to match a Longshot I'm working on for the same client. It has a definite space marine style to it, but would work well for a lot of different themes like HALO, etc..
Thanks for checking it out!
