yeah you should absolutely try to squeeze a dual perm into Contagion. It does look badass though! Love your work

- CONTAGION (AGAIN) -



Okay so it's nothing too exciting because it's yet another Contagion rebuild, however I'm really happy with the result this time! Once again rebuilt from the ground up. Taking heavy inspiration from 13 Black, the spinners now sit at a very subtle 2.5 degree angle for little reason other than it looks cool. Plus I've taken a lot of the bulk out of the boxy extender-chassis to make the shape much more compact and (per Hoppin's suggestion) added a support bar underneath to match the one on top.

- CARDIAC ARREST & WARRANTED ARREST -



I've been trying to up the combat effectiveness of my IRL bots, this time I went back to the police car theme for another Vertical Spinner to go alongside Cardiac; essentially the same bot cut in half, losing some of the aesthetic & drive power to up the component strength from aluminium and give the bar spinner a lot more kickback. And it can self right this time! :)

Both are so good, and Warrented arrest (right bot?) is basically how I should have built a bot I've been toying with recently. Such good work.

Generic Ring Spinner, not strictly IRL as the central disc collides with components but ehh, what can you do? I had to waste some weight on DSL disc trickery to lower the ring height getting is as compact as I could.

Yeah I tried to streamline the design to make it more realistic looking (ie: Lycan) but it does seem to have lost a bit of its charm. When I can, I’ll have another go at the absurd trap setup I had before.

I think it's looking really good, better than the first version anyway. This one actually looks possible to make.

Here's a prototype of a bot that's definitely not a shameless clone of S3/Tashic's bot Hammerhead (minus the beautiful paint work). I need to think of a way of detailing it to separate it from being a direct rip off of S3 though...

There's a sharp disconnect in the design of the smooth body and the jagged axle cover/stabilizer. I guess you could use extender spam on the body?
