Mech Racer No.55 by shinypants Mech Racer No.55 by shinypants
I've added this as my entry to MechaDesigners 'Every Day Mecha' contest

Mecha Racing became an underground phenomenon back in 2023. Crude contraptions were cobbled together from whatever parts could be scrounged together and raced using remote controls. It wasnt until 2028 that popularity hit its peak, although injuries to locals and buildings were increasing due to the racers pushing their mechas faster and faster. 2029 saw official sponsorships and an official league was finally pulled together taking the racers off the streets and into a controlled environment.

The Mecha Racing League now sees fully piloted mecha's and fans have never been more excited. Mecha #55 is piloted by non other than 3 times MRL champion Deet Feutor.

I just David's version and your original. Sweet design. How did I miss this 'little' guy before? Hope things are going good with you. I've been basically inactive but I've been on DA a lot today and thinking about future concepts. I dunno if you are still free to do any but maybe we can do some of your marker sketches if you are.

i honestly dont see the similarities. besides the fact that i've never seen that before. are you accusing me of copying it?

i guess they both have wings, engines and a cockpit.

Can that thing fly? Anyway I like the look of this mech. It could probably hit 700 Mph! Keep up the good work!

heh i honestly dont know. I kinda imagined that its wings were more for downforce than actual take off. But im sure it could detach its legs somewhere in emergencies and take off :D
