I'm pretty certain the Diamond Sharks made the Crimson Hawk as well.

No I'm guessing the Diamond Sharks set up their own production line to produce the Crimson Hawk. Possibly on one of the worlds they hold in the periphery or the Inner Sphere.

in the case of Justin Allard it might actually be easier to shred the centurions shoulder joint and transplant the gun arm of a Victor onto it instead, since Yen Lo Wang used the same Autocannon as the Victor

I've placed a Victor arm sprue in my cart at IWM. Probably what I will end up doing is taking the dremel to the Centurion arm and then doing the same to the Victor arm and taking off the AC20 and then attaching it to the Centurion. I may have to hollow out some of the back end of the AC20 so it fits over the arm a little (to keep the arm length the same and to allow it to bond firmly) but it shouldn't be too big a deal.  Not sure how the Victor arm itself would look on the Centurion since they are probably different scale sizes.

You will be dissapointed.
Because of the different scale, the AC20 of the Victor is a little bit smaler than the AC of the Centurion.

Now how would a Inner Sphere mech thats from the Confederation of all places get its hands on a Heavy Large Laser? And how would it fit it alongside a LRM-20 as well as the ammo? To SKW's!

First of Danai Liao Centrella worked the Cenotaph Stables, and the LRM 20 is of clan make as well.  that explains  the weaponry.  and in the dark age all can be explained by the simple three words "Clan Sea Fox" who have trade/warhouse worlds in every territory including the Republic and Confederation.

Well that answers that, now to try to cram all that into a centurion using Solaris Skunk Works and see if it will all fit!

That's very disappointing :( I was hoping the Victor was on the scale of sale... The warhammer IIC or something. So I guess the only thing I can really do is bore it out like the guys were saying and use green stuff over the missile tubes then find some way to make a claw for the left hand.

it is, but it also illustrates a point that was made earlier.  Bore size does not indicate power of an autocannon.  per Era Report 3052, an AC 20 is defined as a cannon that propels 200 Kilograms of ordinance down range within 10 seconds.  this is why the Hetzer's 150mm gun and the Demolishers 185mm gun can be of different calibers.

it is completely feasable that the Pontiac 1000 A is of a similar caliber to the Luxor D but fires faster

Just sucks that you don't need a BFG to make Yen Lo Wang. Would be nice to easily differentiate from other centurions. Oh well, such is life.

 Also,the current Victor sculpt is the 3050 variant with the gauss rifle, the older one had the 20.

That's where an awesome paintjob comes in.

That mini is really well done!! Just cutting the feet off their little base and bending the knees would have been a biatch but adding thE claw is well done.

OK, the Dark Age Yen Lo Wang has got to be a heavily upgraded to Clan tech mech to have enough room for all the gear and only have a small shield to boot to get everything to fit. I remember reading the books and the character talking about scouring the Inner Sphere for parts but this is just ridiculous!

I just pin viced the bore a little bigger on my existing Centurion. Maybe I'll cover up the missile packs or I'll wait until my existing projects are done and do it right starting from scratch with a pain scheme like that!

Did you stop to consider a simple Clan LRM20 swap?  It makes everything fit.

Tried to avoid to much Clantech, so I actually didn't look at a Clan LRM. Will now.

Yen Lo Wang was already almost all ClanTech...

Clan Engine, IS endo Steel (cause I can not wrap my head around swapping out a fram and it still being the same mech), Clan LRM 20 and a heavy large and you can squeeze in a medium shield and more armor then most centurions

I've never really cared for this look



Have thought about lopping off the shield and axe hands and turning it into a proper Centurion.

You know there are just regular Centurion models available for DA?

Hallucinogenics.  Made them think the XXXX they were making looked good.  Although if you chop up the mechs they make good pieces to use for a 40K ork army.  Used an ag mech and a construction mech to make my ork Big Mek.

Well, using Solaris Skunk Works it is doable to make Yen Lo Wang, but its not very heat efficiant, though I did use remaining tonnage to make it slightly better armored. I think I'll build one in a few weeks.

the idea is that they are radiators (same with the bigt sunburst thing on the back of the jupiter)

though I think on the Legionairre they were changed to ammunition ejection ports

Are you talking about Justin / Kai's version of Yen Lo Wang or some other future DA variant? I would have thought it was quite heat efficient.
