Space Battleship Yamato Message Capsule
I started making this guy back in ’01. Then after a move, home renovation, and a couple of side projects (see projects album), I finished him in ’06. He is based on the Message Capsule from the 1974 cartoon Space Battleship Yamato by Leiji Matsumoto (I have posted reference pictures here). He is entirely sculpted and kit-bashed (I’ll probably post a photo of the constitute parts sometime latter). This was also my first foray into silicone mold making. Incidentally, the pictures I posted here were all I had to go on for scale and what not (and those were in black and white). Hope you guys like it.
