Tank design greatly inspired by merkava. Made with 3dsmax, fusion and photoshop.

Edit: Damn people. I was blown away by popularity of this one. Thanks a lot for all of you.
Theres a bit of a making of image: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/84…

The Fiddler, an awesome mech of power!!. Now available as a full resin model kit Standing 150mm tall, consisting of 91 resin and brass pieces.!!
[link]

This promotional image for the model kit took a tremendous effort to create, both 3d and 2d effects went into this piece!
Please enjoy!, And don't forget to pick up a model kit! (they are awesome!.. trust me, I'm a mechologist)

I'll post some closer views and more detail on the walker later. Just a bit busy at the moment.

The idea of the mech comes from StTheo [link]

There is no such thing as "Overkill" only "Keep Firing" and "Reload".

Armaments: (yeah they're all there..)

1 x 260mm Rail Gun
2 x Quad 70mm Pulse Burst Lasers

Original size: 5000 x 2000 pixels AVAILABLE FOR PRINT.

My entry for the November 2011 Gnomon Workshop forum challenge.

This month the theme was: MMAU; Mobile Mechanized Artillery Unit.

I imagine DARPA will have something like this in a theater of war in the next 50 years; if humanity survives that long.

Enjoy!

*EDIT* I tweaked the sky a bit. Wasn't happy with how it looked. Added more detailed cloud cover. Now I'm done.

My entry for jimms mecha competition.
Inspired by mad catz rat computer mouse, and plenty of transformers reference.

Modeled a simple geometry to get the form and perspective rigth. Everything else is painted in photoshop.

I made this with my 3d creation kit beta it only took about 4 hours to design.

hear is a link to it in 3d [link]

And hear is a link to the creation kit [link]
the Creation kit is a library of almost 200 low poly textures mesh parts that can be combined to form complex designs like this one.

Enjoy :)

The Reconnaissance/Attack Hoverplane 808 was the AgustaWestland response to the procurement of a lightweight attack VTOL plane for advanced reconnaissance and troop support. Powered by 4 Rolls-Royce high bypass afterburned turbofan, it could take off and behave like an helicopter, and with two rear-facing small jet motors it could reach an average operational speed of 500 km/h. The Moongoose could use a great variety of weapons, included Hellfire missiles, guided and dumb rockets ( 70mm and 50mm). The 20mm three-barreled cannon is fitted in a mobile turret and it's driven by the artillery officer in the foward seat. Maximum applicable ceiling: 12000 ft in hovering out of ground effect Average range: 750 miles ( or 2.5 hours ) Average payload: 2500 kg with ferry tanks Average armament: 6x AGM-114 Hellfire missile; 2x AIM-9L Sidewinder AA missiles; 55 70mm FFAR rockets, 1400x 20mm rounds in the internal linkless drum The Moongoose is fitted with an unusual tricycle retractable undercarriage, which allows autonomous taxiing capability. Long range TAT (Target Acquisition and Tracking) version ( RAH-808TAT), equipped with phased array radar and inflight refuelling probe, is also planned.

Here's my latest work! this one is more of an update than a new work, but i like to consider it a new work since the whole thing is revamped so much (this is the previous APOSTLE tank [link]). If you need any explanations or you think you found something that is incorrect/misspelled please comment!

This is part of the description found on the top right corner of the image.
The Bishop-1A7 MBT is an unconventional design featuring an amalgam of the world’s best 3rd generation MBTs. It is the first tank to be succesfully constructed by two nations (Germany and Israel) supported by the multinational corporation NINECORP. However, Israel and Germany both use the Bishop as their own MBT it is also sold to a variety of countries who use it as their primary MBT. The Bishop has tackled more challenges than any tank before it; it does this by using innovative technology as well as technology taken from older tanks such as the Abrams models, the Leopard 2 models, the Merkava models, and the Challenger 2.
The technolgy adapted from the Abrams models is having heavy DU armor and a high power yet quiet engine. One of the incredible abilities the Abrams models have is not only the extremely tough DU armor but also the capability to move silently and quickly with its psuedo-jet engine. However the Bishop uses a conventional (i.e. very load) V16 engine the designers realized the importance of having this advantage and implemented sound muffling technology inside the engine compartment. The DU armor is not layered inside the frontal plating like it is in the abrams it is instead homogeneously alloyed with Rh (Rhenium) and used as the first line of defense on the armor.
Perhaps one of the biggest obstacles the designers overcame is the resistance from IEDs which borrows the design from the leopard 2 tank and various MRAP vehicles. The Bishop is able to divert the energy across the lower surface of the tank, using a similar method that the Leopard 2 does. The hydropnuematic suspension system is also borrowed from the Leopard 2 tank and the Bishop owes its offroad speed capability to that system.
The Bishop, like the Merkava uses a front engine design in addition to the rear hatch. Though the crew survivability is mostly preserved by the advanced armor (see Specifications for detail on the armor) and the V shape under the body to reduce damage from IEDs. The rear hatch allows for quick deployment of soldiers as well as a quick and easy entrance for potentially injured soldiers. However unlike the Merkava the rear hatch on the Bishop offers cover to supporting soldiers on the outside of the tank.
The only technology borrowed from the Challenger 2 tank is the rifled barrel which increases overall accuracy. The Bishop also uses a triple shot autoloader similar to the French Leclerc and Russian MBTs (see figure 4A, note the Russian tanks and the Leclerc use
a larger magazine system and do not need a loader to change out the magazine).

to get a reference for the size, it's approximately twice the volume of a merkava MBT.
