The Soldier is my
first attempt at a manned mech. The biggest
problem that I had with this model was getting it to
stop falling over at the slightest movement.
Thanks to tips from Ben Vaughn, I was
able to accomplish this.
Most of the images below show a improved Soldier. With a few minor changes to the lower
leg, modified feet from Vaughn's
were added. The original design (image 6) was made in Oct-Nov of 1999. Changes to
the lower legs were done in late April, 2003. Image 7 shows the Soldier equipped with the
legs of the Tyr. Images 1, 6, and 7 use the same camera settings so
you see the effect of the various leg configurations.
