Anyone have pics of an assembled MAD-9D?
« on: 10 February 2019, 13:50:36 »
I picked up a couple of packs of Marauder MAD-7D/9D from IWM recently, and am trying to figure out how to assemble the 9D variant. IWM has a pic of the 7D, so that's easy enough. But the pieces included aren't making sense to me- either I'm missing some, or there are a lot of extras. Thanks!

Iirc it also included the pieces for the 9M2 9W2. I think the only difference between the 7D and 9D is the shoulder gun

You bought the box set and are ready to expand your bt experience. Now what? | Modern Sourcebook Index | FASA Sourcebook Index | Equipment Reference Cards | DIY Pilot Cards | IWM Model Difficulty Database (WIP) | PaperTech Mech Counters

I'm increasingly out of synch with successive iterations of BattleTech authors, but it doesn't stop me from still being utterly convinced I understand the setting better than they do.

Perfect!
Thanks to both Sartris and Juodas Varnas for the replies.
Seems like the extra bits are indeed for a different variant.

Sadly, I had to go back and check.  xp The -9W2 variant http://ironwindmetals.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=9775 was done at the same time for the con-release Republic lance pack. I knew the -9M2 wasn't it (it's on my to-do list to mod to), but couldn't remember what the other one was.

Is it just me or do that look WAY better than the old 5R/9S mini?  Anyone have a side by side comparison?

There was a lot of re-skinning done. Beefier legs, shorter upper arms, some thickness to the torso and extra detail. A lot of small improvements, assuming you weren't a big fan of the original PP version's looks.

Yup, it looks great.  As you can tell by my avatar, I'm a huge fan of the 5R, and I think whichever Phoenix Marauder variant you are using, it can be improved by using this new sculpt.  Well done!
