I just finished the display model for the Wonder Festival now I have to make the new display stands for all new kits (and old ones too).
After building two Vincent I wanted to make something different so i decided to make a diorama,I didn't do some much dioramas ,not I don't like them, just they take a lot of space that I don't have.
It was a new thing to me and it's no so easy to find the right composition,I wanted to make a pose that use the full possibility of the articulations , the flexible spine , so I did the robot waking up after a long time trying to stand up and taking support from an Ameise head and give the impression of the instability of the robot,make it a bit weak.
I took the colors scheme from an old japanese car ad ,i was pretty happy with it then a friend asked me "why did you made Iron Man?" well ...
Check the W.I.P and more pictures and video on the japanese blog.
When Luca told me is was doing a diorama with the Ameise i gave him, I knew it will be something great because the guy is talented plus he isreally nice ,we met several times at the WF and always had good times.
I had the chance to see in person his insanely detail models but check his build up and garage kits on is site (Kallamity) they are top -notch .
Luca sent me a mail telling me he will not do something retro so I didn't know what to expect ,when I got the pictures I was really surprise( in a good way ) it was a fresh take on the robot and the diorama set up by itself was brilliant as usual go to see the site for more pictures.
Last year FichtenFoo made a diorama with one of my robot( Vincent) , when i got the pictures i was really happy ,Michael did a great job on the model( check the step by step on his site) and the atmosphere of the scene is perfect.
He picked up a nice retro color scheme for the robot and the sign is well ... flawless
Be sure to check his new site industriamechanika with all the upcoming kits in collaboration with the top concept artists .
Back in 2005/2006 I decided to make my own garage kits, after losing a lot of silicon and resin i could make about 5 complete models without too much bubbles, i paint two ,the rest i gave them away to friends.
Here is the build up of the very first futuristic kits, I still have one taking dust on my shelf.
