Leopard - Scale and bay progress
"What is table top scale?" - Well MWO is based off Battletech and battletech is a board game played with metal miniatures around 5cm in height on a hexagonal board.
In green are 2 mechs scaled to table top height. Those centurions are 4.8cm tall so you can see plenty of head room for the larger models with bases. All said and done you could probably fit 6 models in the drop ship (three on either side)
I've also added a battletech themed floor to the bays there's some finishing touches to be added but making those hexs work took longer than I thought.
As well as seeing how the new central spine works you can also see the lugs I have been adding for strength when gluing the sections together.
I have to add some more lugs then go though the model again to make sure there's no holes in the parts or internal geometry then I should be ready to get some print quotes (if i dont get side tracked adding details).
