Another magnetized omni, have the new plastic one on the workbench, waiting for parts to arrive.

For the Kokou custom, I didn't touch the launcher, but used the Rhino turret to kind of simulate the triple lasers.  May try and see if any other turrets work to emulate other versions.

Enjoy!

Is that a Crescent Hawks Ice Ferret?  Like all the arm options, that looks great!  :drool:

The Crescent Hawks were my first introduction to a merc unit that wasn't overhyped in the fluff, my first to the game in general, and I prefer blue as a personal color.  The CH scheme is my goto scheme for my magnetized omnimech project as well

Nice looking stuff. How do you make the magnetized limb connection? Is is square magnet inserted into square hole or how do you keep it from rotating?

Round magnets, and friction via primer and lacquer.  In the case of a number of the arms, they tend to balance pretty level.  The magnets are generally strong enough to hold it in place, as long as the arm itself isn't too heavy for the magnets being used.

hi! You make nice mini, but at the same time you destroy all quality of uploaded images, by making a collage.

I'll keep that in mind.  I'm trying to keep the attachments to a minimum when I do the posts as there are usually more than several pictures to be displayed.
