Q-14 Reconnaissance Robot: And it Was All Yellow…
October 21st, 2011
The Q-14 Reconnaissance Robot was built by John Neiner for Starship Modeler’s Yellow contest way back in 2007, but it’s still just as cool as the day it was created. The robot definitely looks like an interesting addition to any modern family, wanting a bit of help with aliens and farming in the future.
John built the robot from scratch using sheet styrene. He drew a reference sketch of the ‘bot that he used throughout the creation process. All of the joints were made so that they would allow the resulting ‘bot to be posed. I have to say that it looks pretty awesome.
Would you scratch-build your own ‘bot like this? It’s a pretty daunting project, but when you take it one step at a time, I suppose anything is possible.
