The Gambit mech made its initial appearance in the Age of Destruction game. That is pretty much the extent of the information available about the Gambit, a light (25 tons) mech. It is not a major design in the Battletech universe, and depictions of it are rare. If you are a fan of the Gambit, this may be one of the few places where you can see it in photos.
I’m not totally sure why I decided to build this model, other than the fact that I thought Primus’ design of the sloped shoulders looked interesting. I didn’t keep much of the original torso, and modified it to accommodate a pilot figure. I also widened the arms to give them more heft. The joints connecting the legs to the hips were inadequate, and I replaced them with Technic brick friction joints with rotating pins. The result was one of the most stable mech models I have built to date. Perhaps other folks who know more about the Gambit can add to the discussion.
