Lecutia Platform Hauler by Foxi-5 Lecutia Platform Hauler by Foxi-5
Things that make you go BOOM!
So, this one is the Lecutia, with a sub-warp rocket pack giving some love to a pirate spaceship or too.

Hi All, I've been up to mischief. Yep, created a website and all. About 26 CAD models on there too. Going to start a little mini's business. Maybe, if there is enough interest for it. This is one of the mini's that will be on sale there soon. I may do a Kickstarter, or I might just do single items depending. I'll upload some more pictures here from time to time.  www.gunslave.com for those that are curious.

Yes this one could do a great miniature. (^^)
Do you also make other custom stuff, other than mechas?
I have interest on a YAMATO-based battleship model from the Muv-Luv series, either that comes from you, or I make a papercraft by myself, or yet if there is already a plastic kit or complete model of that, well let's see...

Generally I don't do custom stuff for other franchises, because I make stuff that is customizable for the audience. Ie: all the mecha have swap-able parts. Tanks, trucks too. Big spaceships, I draw, but converting them to 3d would takes many weeks of work...

Is the website live? Can we go poke at it?

Yep, it's my dodgy skills at web building. I had to learn a lot. But you can float around and download a whole lot of pics and stuff. Will be prepping a model for sample casting tomorrow.

Whoops, that should say www.gunslave.com    but the web company looks to have crashed their servers. .. Hopefully up soon.

I'm digging the idea of the built-in thrust venting ports on the missile pods. It'd make sense to have them, and I think it's an important detail that people like to gloss over.

*Nods*. Yes, you wouldn't want a giant missile blowing up inside the chamber from excessive heat.... I've seen the big rockets and ICBM's use venting. So, hell yeah!

Exactly!
Also from some of the smaller details I've noticed on the warhead itself that's launching, I can imagine that it's got built-in countermeasures against ballistic missile defense systems. The first idea that comes to mind is those small, black circles towards the tip that are actually launch tubes for flares or chaff to deter interceptor missiles. Maybe the warheads even come equipped with their own personal shielding, stealth, and even maneuvering systems to protect against other solid-state countermeasures! Imagine a ballistic missile literally weaving around to avoid CIWS fire, eh?

Well, the Lecutia is launching a sub-warp (sub-lightspeed), solar range missile. It's designed to jettison hard disruption mines from those ports which then breech through spaceships (including through electro-hardened surfaces). So any large pirate spaceship or battlecruiser will get slammed. The missiles travel so fast, that they can't be caught (solar system instability). Shooting at them coming towards you means you're already too late to save oneself. It's a mean, mean missile.

Huh, sub-lightspeed ballistic missile... Yeah I suppose that'd kinda eliminate the need for solid-state countermeasures. I was thinking too far in the past for the thing! You'd need to preemptively attempt to counter the missile before it's even within any sort of CIWS or EMP range just to stand a chance against something that fast. That makes it better that it's launched from the ground from such a relatively small platform. You'd never know it's coming from something other than another battleship!

Or, only fly a highly maneuverable, small drop ship that contains 1-6 mecha. ;D

That too, but a torpedo like the Lecutia seems like something you'd refrain from using against such a small target...

That's where the Corona missile array comes in. (See on my site). They are deployed to stop fly-in's from jumpships to close to your town.

Actually you should make a cannon/rail gun variant of that thing. Maybe give it some AA capabilities too...

Behind the scenes work? You mean like an actual "paying" job?
Reply

Foxi-5 Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2017
Nah, getting a potential business sorted out. Many people have asked me to produce mini's. So I've been creating the models for that, and a game. Plus I've had to undergo a "stack" of treatments to fix my stomach matters. That's the real reason I haven't posted up here for such a long time. But getting better, little bit by little bit.

Well with you talents you should be getting paid. Many artists turn their creations into a business.

Thanks man. :)  At Supanova expo a while back, every 2nd person was "yelling" at me to get a Kickstarter happening. {Yelling}!.... I was so busy at my job doing IT work, that I never had time, but now I've got time. So I can post models. Yuss.
