Feasibility of the Phoenix Hawk L (Taka)
« on: 15 November 2017, 18:57:35 »
 I'm planning to kitbash one at some point, but was wondering just how feasible it would be to just include new arms for the L version?  It looses 10 tons per the fluff, but still looks reasonably same to the reseen version, maybe with smaller jump jets.  There's several other mechs that do this as well, changing weight without compromising overall looks like the Stalker, Jagermech and Centurion.

What are everyone else's thoughts?

The MW:DA one was very small. It would work as a CBT mini without any issues. It would save a lot of work.

I'd love to have a smaller Phoenix Hawk L.  I just wonder how they'll pull it off, it's half the size of the original.
