Tomorrow's War meets Battletech: House Kurita's "Stinger" finished

STG-3R Stinger - another light 20 ton Mech for my Kurita recon lance.

Sharing most of the design features of its cousin (the Wasp), the Mech had been produced already en masse during the age of the Star League.

While the pilot within the head suffers from a cramped cockpit, the Stinger has the same agility and almost nearly as much firepower as the Wasp.

Main weapon of the 3R variant is the Omicron 3000 Medium Laser that is held in the right hand. Note the light battle damages to the shoulder (or me being unable to notice what the glue had done.... *wall bash*)

Left and right forearm bear Linblad Machine Guns to engage infantry.

Tomorrow's War meets Battletech: House Davion's "Stinger" finished

STG-5M Stinger with tech-update to face the invading Clans


 Thanks to weight-saving Endo-Steel the updated Stinger has more armour and received some new weapons to replace the Machine Guns of the older 3S model.
Main weapon remains the Omikron 3000 Medium Laser on the right arm.  

 The left arm now carries a FlameTech Flamer to engage infantry and light Mechs. 

 The updated configuration now also has a Lindblad "Shotgun" Anti-Missile-System, whose radar dome and multi-barrel gun can be seen mounted underneath the wrist of the right arm.

 The back and chassis apart from the head is more or less identical to its cousin, the Wasp.

Tomorrow's War meets Battletech: House Davion's "Wasp" finished

And there goes the next one...

Some more Davion love, to be added to my recon lance:

WSP-1A Wasp, based upon another Macross kit in 1/200 which works fine in N-scale. Compared to my previous Wasp for Kurita, this one resembles the early Succession Wars Wasp model with the SRM launcher still mounted to the left leg.

Diverse Optics Type 2 Medium Laser

Not much to say about this Mech apart from having created the pose as seen in TRO 3025 (Kurita's Wasp was based upon the TRO 3050 artwork).
