It's got a lot of upper body mass. Built for lifting heavy things during wartime as well as a strong defensive role, the Kasabaru was designed for one thing: toughness. It's nigh-indestructible by any sort of anti-tank round, and is vulnerable to laser fire and blunt force from other mechs.
I've updated the photos to look a whole lot better than they did before.
I don't suppose you'd want to be on the business end of this gun.
Regular stance. It's nice and bulky but can still move very well.
Back/side shot. I love how many greebles ended up being on the back of the Kasabaru.
Another side shot.
A side shot with the gun (no pun intended)
This shot was really hard to pull off as I had to balance the mech just right to let it stand up.
It ended up looking less like it was running and more like it was skipping.
The frame I used was my own variation of Sentruos' mech frame, and used several of the same concepts. It's designed to be posable and still provide an ample platform for bulking up with armor. In total this project was about 3 days long, 1 for the frame, and 2 for armor. The hands were a bit finnicky in a sense that I was running low on the parts I needed, but I managed to scrounge up enough to finish the model. I included instructions if you want to build it yourself. Make sure to inform me if you do, as I'd love to see it.
