I have been a fan of Star Trek since it was possible to be so, love the franchise, movies, series, the lot. I saw a diagram that resulted in an ATAT (All-Terrain Armoured Transport) – one of many fairly silly designs from The Babylon 5 universe, and with some shaming from a friend (thanks Dodes) I decided to give it a whirl.
If you were making a vehicle for battle, the last thing on the design bench (apart from a 2 legged chicken-like bipedal mobile gun turret) would be a quadruped.
This model hides a huge quantity of paper (it might be worth re-working to tease out some mechanistic detail) to result in a lovely posable quadruped that resembles K9 (if indeed K9 had legs and they were mechanical).
I went off plan in numerous places to improve the fold, and decided to do a bunch of closed sinks to tidy legs, body and heady thing. In the end I think this was a good idea as it simplified and strengthened the model, stopping it from unfolding in ugly ways and making it more posable.
There is lots of “starwars-agami” and I must try more, I have folded Yoda a few times but should look for more of the vehicles and roboty things to fold.
