Mad Dog by Punakettu Mad Dog by Punakettu
Since I updated the Timber Wolf model, I decided to do the same for Mad Dog.

I don't have anything of it but I guess it would make a neat little 10 sec video. I just don't have the time to render something like that.

Beautiful! I love these realistic renders that bring battletech to life, one Mech at a time. Or in this case, three. :)

Nicely done man! I belted out a low poly version of the vulture variant for my midterms at school. How many hours did this take you to do? And what program did you use? I made mine in 3ds Max.

I have no Idea how many hours I've used. I've rebuilt this model twice after I made the first version years ago. I never keep track of my hours anyway since I have no need to do so. I used wings 3d.

I always was a fan of the Mad Dog. If only this model were in Mektek's Mechwarrior 4. Oh well.

Perhaps some time you can attempt a model on the Summoner? I would love to see your take on it.

Gotta love this thing. Although I hate it to have a Mad Dog as enemy in MechWarrior 3 or 4. But sitting in it is awesome.

Freaking awesome model. What I never understood about mechs though is how Battletech used monomer musclulature, and how the mechs later designed such as the Vulture/Mad Dog, (even by the Clans, who were with Kerensky's team of scientists and had access tot he tech) run on what looks like hydraulics?

I've looked around for this information, but I can't find any explanation.

Absolutely brilliant model. If I'd had this to work from when doing my lego version, it might have come out better!

I love the little details, like the hatches and whatever those things are on the pulse lasers. The attention to detail is amazing.

Love your model on the Hagetaka, though I prefer the Inner Sphere, the Hagetaka is one of the few mechs that want me to just go and let the Clans do their thing (Wardens not Crusaders).

oops, sorry, saw that you are with Mektek.

MP3.1 is awesome by the way. NBT-HC is considering it. I hope that others find out about the free download and flood the leagues with new blood - or old blood that have drifted away.

I used to draw Mad Dogs on my binder when I was in grade school. Seeing this reminded me of how much I used to love giant machines back when I was little. I still do, but I used too to.

Now for some praise! Excellent model work.

That's no Mad Dog. I'm know what the Mad dog looks like. your miss two auto cannons on the slides of the nose on it and the gunery pods on the arms of a mad dog are bigger then what you made. that's the vulture not a mad dog

Yea... How about you familiarize yourself with Battletech canon before trying to give me a lecture about a subject you clearly have no knowledge of. :roll:

acecombatfighter Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2009
yeah i do. i was a huge mechwarrior fan. and i know what i'm talking about. it's the little minute detail that give it away. like the mad cat and the timber wolf. again same basic model, different weapon, and defensive systems. just like what you made. the vulture has a slightly smaller design making it faster the the mad dog. with a centrally mounted pulse cannon, which your so called "vulture" should have. it should have a gun turret in place of the pulse cannon. and the gun mounts on the arms should be larger at the back and more narrow to the front, with two shielded missile pods, that have a vent grill in the back.l oh the the whole body of the vulture is smaller then what you drew. i should now because i've used both of them online battle-tech tournament.

Jesus christ... You're only making yourself look more foolish. First of all, Mad dog and Vulture are the exact same mech. They are not variants of each other. The same goes for the Mad Cat and Timber wolf. :roll:

You can always head to the classicbattletech.com forums and ask around there if you want to make a fool of yourself.

:iconsingularly-datarific:
I think I know what he's talking about. In the game Mechassault, they made it so the clanner names were simply a different variant, so in the game, the Mad dog is a variant of the vulture.
If the clans ever hear about that, they'd be stupendously insulted.

As Khan of the NBT-HC Clan Blood Spirit, I am indeed stunned.
MechAssault was a POS game. Look what it has done for comprehension of Clan vice IS naming conventions. And how many of the MechAssault mechs had 360 torso rotation? Baloney!!

Best mech to be piloting, and the worst one to be facing. (In the hands of a skilled pilot that is).
