    • Lots of works in my FlickR gallery
Again, new pics from an old model. This AT-ST-like combat walker  is a resin/white metal kit from an obscure tabletop SF-strategy game called "Kry°mek Confrontation" (???), it was manufactured by Fantasy Forge from UK, a company better known for roleplaying miniatures. However, they also has a SF line, which included this and some other mecha.
Long time ago, I just stumbled across this (and another) Nexus Rider kit in a local RPG store, and since they were well-detailed and in 1:72, they were immediately added to the mecha home forces ;)
The kit has no moveable parts except for the cabin on the chassis. Many details (equipment, cammo nets, commander's hatch and figure) were added from the scrap box or scratched.
It received the same paint multi-color desert scheme as my 1:72 Dougram "Bushman" (then from the Revell Robotech series) in four tones of brown and sand, and it'as actually one of my first (successful) attempts of weathering.

Good work Dizz.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
