In the winter and spring of 2009, things were great. I was still on night shift, I was prototyping like a fiend, and life was good.
I was busy as all get out, though, and a few things fell through the cracks.
Here's a few pics of the Merka and Earth Force APC original master prototypes. These were amber-colored Objet prints, excellent for their day.
Before there was a RUM-V system, there were these accessories. "Caterpillar"-style anti-gravity pods that never quite made it to molding (like I said, it was a busy time).
Wolverine Fire Support variant of the Earth Force APC.
Merka 5 and 9, the Main Battle Tank and Self-Propelled Artillery units.
It has only been four years, but these models seem to have from a lifetime ago. I has happy to discover these pics when looking for the digital files to which they correspond.
