BattleTech Locust

After a few hours, a cup of coffee, and a massive headache—I’ve finally finished this BattleTech Locust! The entire model is cut and engraved from :proofgrade: basswood hardwood. Using this material allowed me to implement the technique of 3D engraving to add more definition to the build. This may not be very good for painting, but it is definitely a usable game piece. I’ve included the file below, be aware that there are a lot of steps to the file in the Glowforge interface, and all of the engraved areas of the model that need to be 3D engraved are on the side weapons, the center cannon, and both layers of the head.
