Inquiries should be directed to Thor for these custom built Models
Due to an overwhelming call to arms Thor is producing his durable war machines to order nearly around the clock. He has asked for me to make the announcement that Production is moving along and to please be patient with your orders. He is purchasing a second printer to increase production as soon as he can. If you have any questions please address him at email@example.com
After several requests from viewers out there Thor asked me to pose some of the mechs he makes together for a group photo. This is a group photo of Thor's work for scale. The two figures on the
left-center in front are from Khurasan in 28mmm. the two on the right-center are
original Steiner laser troops in 25mm.
the truck on the right is an ambulance Thor designed for sci-fi street clutter. He has a 1/2 dozen vehicles we haven't featured yet.
After talking with the mech-maker this evening he hinted at a classic unseen design armed with long ranged missiles, a mech with interchangeable long ranged missiles,/Cruise missiles/ particle Projectors in its weapons bays, and an itsy-bitsy co-op project with our friend north of the border.
(thanks Messy Desk, your request is being processed.)
am posting regarding your inquiry for vehicles proudly produced by
Thor's Mechworks. I am building them on a build to order basis,
currently the wait time is about 1-2 weeks. Prices do not include
shipping from the 65745 zip code. Be aware that I try to keep the
shipping as low as possible. Additionally, the models are significantly
lighter than cast resin models further reducing shipping costs.
Here is the current list of items produced:
Obliterator Tank $60
Engineor Mech $70
Bunyip Mech $80
Winchester Mech $90
Mjölnir Mech $100
Yumi Mech $100
Creeper Mech $110
Obliterator Tank - This tank is big. It can demolish anything in it's way.
Length: 19cm (7 1/2")
Width: 15cm (6")
Hull Height: 3.5cm (1 3/8")
Overall Height: 7cm (2 3/4")
Engineor Mech - Jenner was originally an occupational surname for someone who was a military engineer.
It comes from the Middle English version of the Old French word
“engineor,” which meant “contriver” or “cunning.” The Engineor stands
Bunyip Mech -
Fun fact:In Australia, a common name for the cicada is the Brown
Bunyip. The overall height of this mech is around 14cm (5 1/2"),
depending on how you pose the legs.
Winchester Mech - The Winchester is like a rifle, man... I got nothin. 20cm to the top of the radar array.
Mjölnir Mech - Mjölnir was the war hammer of Thor. 21.5cm to the top of the torso. 25cm to the top of the rocket pod.
Yumi Mech - The yumi was a Japanese longbow for samurai. 19.5cm to the top of the torso. 24cm to the top of the sensor pod.
Creeper Mech -
This guy likes to stalk around the battlefield. Like a stalker. The
overall height is around 24.5cm (9 5/8"), depending on how you pose the
You can see some awesome pictures of the mechs on these websites:
models are printed from ABS plastic and partially assembled for
surfacing and posing purposes and they are all almost fully articulated
(the Bunyip has one joint that has to be glued). You can assemble the
model, pose it, move it around, make it dance, etc. without gluing it.
ABS material that is used to construct the models is the same kind of
common plastic that milk jugs, model kits, plastic forks, etc. are made
from. It is very light and quite durable. The printing process is a lot
like decorating a cake. The printer heats up the plastic in an extruder
and squirts it down in very small layers (about 0.2 mm). The final
product has a grain a lot like wood. With the grain is very strong and
flexible but when stressed against the grain the layers can separate.
Luckily, fractured pieces glue back together very easily with a little
super glue, usually without any noticeable breaks at all. The
separations don't tend to happen all at once so they are easy to catch,
glue and clamp together for drying before significant damage occurs.
Also, if absolute disaster strikes I can print off individual pieces and
send them out, generally free of charge.
have to be careful when using a hobby knife and cutting with the grain
of the material. I have slipped and sliced my fingers a couple of times
this way as it take far less pressure to cut with the layers than
pieces are printed in a way that they have exterior layers and a
hexagonal infill of about %15 so the pieces are not solid all the way
through. This cuts down the weight and material usage. A problem with
this method happens when big drill bits are used on the surface layer.
When using a large bit (1/4" plus) in a low RPM power tool such as a
cordless drill, the bit tends to grab and tear at the outer walls. A
dremmel works much better as the higher RPMs and smaller bits alleviate
the problems of the bit grabbing and tearing at the plastic. It is still
possible to drill the pieces with a larger bit and slower tool, but you
will want to start with a small diameter drill bit and work your way up
in sizes to the desired diameter.
ABS plastic has a slight lined texture from the printing process but
this can be remedied with some primer and a little sanding. It is much
lighter than cast resin and is more durable in almost all respects. When
it does fracture it tends to be along the grain, but this is easily
fixed with a dab of superglue.
You can smooth out the texture in two ways.
Acetone - Acetone on a paper towel will smooth the surface out. Just
remember that acetone melts the ABS so don't dump it in a vat of it or
it will turn into goo.
Sanding - This is your fairly straightforward method of working down
from a large to small grit sandpaper. It also helps if you sand, prime,
then sand again as the primer, then prime again. This helps fill in the
gaps with primer.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
So I had a little influence over Thor in this build. The Iconic "War Hammer" of the 1980's is the mech I see as the poster child of FASA's giant robot games strolling across the desolate box cover of the game I loved as a kid. This build will work into the Rifleman as we already have half the model built digitally. Size: 21.5cm to the cockpit, 24cm to the missile pod.
