I am thinking about adding an Ostscout mech to MechVM. In this case, I clearly prefer the new artwork from Project Phoenix, but I wanted to hear your thoughts on it. Note that the new version is clearly able to torso-twist.

The old Ostcout resembles something out of a cartoon. Arms are scrawny, and the cockpit is unappealing.

The new Oscout looks like a well-assembled clan light mech. The frame that goes around the cockpit is kinda cool, and the jumpjet exausts on the back compliment it well.

You mean like Macross/Robotech, for the Zentraedi Pods?
same goes to the MAD-3* Marauder, that the image was based on the Zentraedi Officer's Pod from Macross/Robotech.

There's also this version floating around:

I'm not a big fan of hand actuators but prefer the head of this version to the original.

Interesting, thanks, it's nice blend of the Mechs. Unfortunately, I haven't been working on Mechs in months.
