Of course, with Greg working on his TruKom rebels, the Spacekrieg escalation must continue. With this in mind I set about painting a mechanized death machine to serve as an example of revolutionary engineering prowess and the inevitability of victory for the latest 50-Year Plan. So what if a few million peasants starve in the process -- look at this frickin' cool giant robot we built!!
The base model is, of course, the Destroid "Monster" from Robotech - "the largest mech ever constructed by humanity" or something. All I know is that it looks vaguely Russian and has some very big guns.
I was pretty lazy and just painted it straight up - no conversion. Me, I'm not that familiar with the Robotech universe so it doesn't look odd to my eyes to see a Robotech vehicle in FuturKom livery.
This shot gives a good impression of the large size of the Monster - it's big! Look out Space Panthers!!
