Leichte SPzA-II Armored Suit by MikeDoscher Leichte SPzA-II Armored Suit by MikeDoscher
First in a series of World War II mecha designs from all the major powers. I'd resisted an explicit participation in alternate history scenarios, but I thought I'd try my hand at it. Famous last words, eh? Dieselpunk claims another soul!

Certainly, feel free. I can point you towards reference for most of the features you see here, as it's designed to fit in with the existing weapon systems and construction techniques of the time period.

oh that would be great=) when I start on it I will contact you, maybe wecan do a mini interview via skype if you would be interested. This is a side project for me, but it would be great to do each of these vids with details of the DA artist that inspired me to make the model.

Thanks for your time.

no prob, I absolutely refuse to get in the way of anything productive, I have a busy schedule regarding my professional time, which is why this would be in spare-spare time..lol.but sometime when it works for both of us is great. Shouldn't be more than 5-10min.

Thank you, will contact you later when I start it. :)

Maybe we have a brief talk via skype over the weekend. Im excited to start this channel as it will be the first of its kind, plus its more motivation to work on portfolio.

Cool, will do.

The gun at the shoulder is a 3.7cm Pak 36: [link]
The shoulder gun has also been fitted with a pneumatic autoloader and a drum magazine kind of like the MG/FF (top photo):[link]
The chin gun is an MG 151: [link]
There don't seem to be any good sites with multiple shots of the MG 151, so you may need to cast around a little.

I'll find you refs for the rest of the stuff tonight, but the guns are the really fiddly elements.
