Interest in Mad Cat III-X , 4 and Eve
« on: 12 September 2021, 13:07:32 »
Hello,

I am checking to see if people are interested in Fan Funding a new version of the Mad Cat III, it would be the III-X, III-4 and III Eve. The model is based off of Stephen Huda files from the Mad Cat III-Eve.

Okay! This was a Collaboration between Stephen Huda and I!

Here are pictures of the 3D models:




And I did print and paint one, so here is an image of that as well!

So the launchers, right arm and the electronics will be variant bits?

Missiles will be integral to the torso similar to the original sculpt. Eve will also have the "Mouth" sculpted right into the torso.

Sensors vary (Arti V/AMS for the X/4 blister and TAG for the Eve).  Arms are different as well (obviously!).

would it be two blisters, one for the X/4 and then one for Eve, or a combo?

I could probably use one for that Sea Fox unit I have been plotting, I'd throw in a few bucks.

Stinger...just a recommendation (also open to the financiers that back this), while I get the art is as is...how would everyone feel about trimming down that "over-compensation" of a gun for the right arm? LOL

I'll pass, but best of luck to all of you. I'll reserve my cash for a something that doesn't already have a mini of the same base chassis.

I'd probably back this, and I would be OK giving that PPC a bit of a briss!

The two doesn't even have an official record sheet though! And the description in TRO Prototypes is not detailed enough to create a record sheet...
