Heavy Gear Blitz 2017 Kickstarter Preview: Peace River Crusader IV Model
This weeks preview is the Crusader IV model for Peace River, with stock Heavy Autocannon, Linked Medium Rockets, back mounted Light Field Mortar, and Medium Vibro Blade (Axe). With this larger model we are trying a new 4 part poseable arm configuration, where the shoulder is hollow with slots on the inside for the upper arm to be positioned (angled) wider out. Plus slots on the front and back for the shoulders armor plate to be able to rotate up as the arm is positioned wider. The lower arm can be rotated in towards or away from the body and glued as wanted, checkout the image below with these and other detail improvements and information.
As with our previous previews we are including a link to a new 3d PDF of the Crusader IV which the Solidworks 3d software allows us to make now, click here to download the 3d PDF (4.3MB) file. Once on the download page, you will need to right click on your mouse for the option to save the file or you may have a download button at the top right of the screen to click, as 3d PDFs won't open automatically online. And you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for PC or MAC, here is a link to its download/install page. Once you have the filed downloaded to your computer and open it using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. See our previous update with the Warrior IV preview at the following link for a fast preview of how the 3d PDF works.
We want your feedback on the Crusader IV model, leave you comments below. We'll continue tweaking the Crusader IV parts up until the Kickstarter launch in mid-September to get the best new plastic models possible. The next Heavy Gear Blitz 2017 Kickstarter preview will be models from the Utopia Faction and then on to NuCoal.
