Super Killer Rabbid Robot named MaK
« on: May 02, 2016, 10:56:07 AM »
Here's something I've been messing around with lately. It started out as a happy meal toy from a video game called Rabbids. I found it in an alley. It has a new life now.
So, at the beginning...

I had to remove his spare tire/tyre and fill in his belly. Then I cut off what little he had in the way of arms and legs and built new ones, MaK style. The gun barrel is from a propane lighter I found.

Thank heavens for Aves! The arms and legs are made from various tubing  with a ball of Aves to make the joints look like flexible material. I placed a wire armature inside the new limbs.
The feet were made from computer keyboard keys and half of a plastic appetizer spoon.




So now I had to make a robot hand. Once I figured out how it went quickly. Basically, I cut a section from a drop tank and sliced a groove to make knuckle joints and then between each finger.


So with some primer and greeblies I'm up to this point.


The skirt armor is from full size plastic spoons and the knee and shoulder armor is from the appetizer spoons.
As usual, I'm pondering what paint scheme to use. I'm not inclined to use the Panzer schemes used on most MaK builds. I suppose I could look up pics of wild rabbits but that seems a little tame......
Let me know what you guys think.

Wild!!  Now why do I hear Elmer Fudd in the background singing "Kill the rabbid..." (cf. Warner Bros. "Looney Toon" cartoon, What's Opera, Doc?).

Elmer better have his own AFS!

Of course, how would he get his big head into the suit?

Wouldn't that be "Kill the wabbid"? ???

I don´t know what Rabbids are, but I like this one!

Great job with the computer parts!

Regarding the paint scheme, it all depends on the planned operational theatre of the machine :)

What about this one?


It suits your rabbit robot like a mechanical glove :)

Project revival!
I finally decided on a splinter paint scheme using OD green, sand beige and Krylon Smoke grey. Pics will follow as its gloss coat is still drying and I don't want to take the chance on a big fat finger print in the middle of it. I've got a bunch of old decals that should finish it out.

Some pics!











Detail painting, decals and an attempt at weathering to go. One of his side skirts keeps breaking off. I'm going to glue it back on with a ball of Aves behind it to reinforce it. Any ideas what to do with his "goggle" lenses?

Love it!  :-*

How about a glossy fuchsia colour to suggest a laser-protection  lens coating?
