BattleTech is a huge house, it’s not any one fan’s or “type” of fans.
Even the first set of Introductory Boxed Set minis had their problems, but again, they can be made to look good examples of a Cicada and Battlefech. Granted, the “dimple” that almost every one has somewhere caves in the entire side and requires a lot of rework, but I’ve seen minis from a misaligned mold that require almost as much work.
CityTech – BattleTechWiki
I hacked the lower arms of the Daishi next to it to get my PPCs. Hengist on 24 March The only way I really got GS to stick on the old 3rd ed stuff was to really rough up the area you are putting it down.
ColBosch Lieutenant Colonel Posts: Oh, that is neat, and something I didn’t know before. Yes, but for different reasons The rear facing toe had to be placed anew giving the word toecutter a totally new meaning I was not so excited about the Fatipult and the hands on the Hunchback were fragile but they were what they were.
Later i got a Citytechframe. That said, I absolutely love the ones I have now that they are all painted up.
CityTech – Wikipedia
I agree it takes different techniques for different materials and not everyone is willing to learn the techniques, but I do think that some of the disgust is because the cleaning process is so hard with that 3rd edition plastic and once that’s done you still have to deal with all the rest of the issues with the casting so folks just think why bother.
Cazaril, I have to disagree somewhat about placing the fault on the user because of the techniques needed to clean the 3rd edition mechs. While the Uller used scrap material and was easy to build the Nova took a bit more time.
As for comparing them to the newer minis, I agree with Feenix Is there an upper limit to how good they can look? This wargame -related article is a stub. Vaaish Master Sergeant Posts: Found almost a full box set of Plastechs in a miniatures bargain bin at a comic store in Cittech, Oregon, mid 90’s. Vaaish on 30 July Wish I had a bunch of them.
I actually though the Val’s, Panthers and Atlas mechs were close enough to the art to be acceptable and the Locust Plastech I lived with because it was durable. The remnants of the Daishi still await their fate, but i bsttletech they will end like the Centurion which ended as kill under the feet of a Nightsky. ColBosch on 20 March It is just a little unfair except in the case of the I. Because the panel lines are shallow and not crisply defined, the standard “Basecoat, wash, drybrush, done” that a lot of people like to use doesn’t work so well with these.
Once you get the first layer adhered you can sculpt as normal. But who’s fault is that? ColBosch on 14 March They really aren’t in the same league as a mold slip on a metal or resin model.

Cazaril Warrant Officer Posts: Hengist Lieutenant Colonel Posts: I still have Plastech Panther’s that’s been lugged a million miles and still look like they were the day I painted them!! But the truth is, as some others have mentioned, they are not irreversibly so.
As for the PlasTech ones But again, working with the PlasTech minis is a little different than the metal versions Pat Payne Lieutenant Posts: Big shock, but my painting has improved a bit since 96, when I got them, so I’ve stripped a bunch to re-try. I picked up 3 of the 4 not released packs at ECCC this weekend. That said, it didn’t work nearly as well on the Citytech material that, or using different priming techniques made it more difficult.
