The Albatross all finished. I must say I do like how it turned out even tho I had my doubts in the final stretch of making this mech. Final mesh is around 100000+ faces. That translates to about 230000 triangles.

I thought it was pretty good... I wouldn't have picked it if I hadn't thought that. That's not to say I didn't see things that could be improved. ;)

Nice take on the ALB-3U. I must admit, I didn't like the Tech Readout 3055 original or upgrade pic. That ER Large Laser on his left torso jutted out pretty badly. Well done on giving it a more aesthetic appearance...

Glad you like it. :)

I never really had any major gripes about the illustrations it has had in the TRO. Only things that really bothered me were the wholly unrealistic left arm that was supposed to be an LBX and the right shoulder that had no possible means of working as a joint and a missile pod. Those were the only things I wanted to fix in the design.

I just got an idea... Pimp My Mech.

still, someone needs to do pimp my mech, that would rock. Maybe I can get Bandit to do it.

Awesome work! Was this particular design for BattleTech, or just a random Mecha?

It's an official battletech mech. You can check out the TRO here.

I was told it took about 1½ hours. With my CPU it would've taken 10 hours.

It looks beautiful! And it's got that fresh-from-the-factory shine shine to it.
