It's kinda neat what a few hundred hours, a couple tools, and a group of guys can do. CTR 1650 poses in the afternoon sun after a makeover. There were many of obstacles along the way. From angle grinders burning up left and right, to the paint curdling up, it was definitely quite the experience. Glad I was able to be a part of this project.
Sorry for the long absence here on Flickr, but I actually forgot the password and the email password, so it was an ordeal, but now that I'm back, I decided to take my new build and post it here first.
The CTR-01' is a build inspired by a ceramic tortoise I got as a souvenir on my last vacations, and inspiration can come from any place, so this is what came out of that.
Colors are spread out but used in small doses and it is modular since the external armor can be removed and there is a smaller mech hidden there as well, all with a minifig as a pilot.
So, what do you think? also, follow me on twitter and instagram, I post more regularly there.

Just had to grab a pic with how much this reminded me of the old BFI logo. No idea what they run.
