Skarabaeus HJF-43

Back to space-ics

You know, sometimes you build something to a certain extent and that you cannot finish it somehow. Then it lays around for some time, you look at it several times and eventually the final direction comes to shape so you manage to finish it off – this is exactly one of those creations! If there is an existing design or a synopsis of a few designs there is a clear path to follow, but creating a new original design is just different.

BTW there are a whole load of this kind of projects spread across my creative lab.

 

Building notes

I fiddled around with the large flat curvy panels and my limited parts available in dark tan. It happened that this insect-shell like design came out. My love for the small flags urged me to look how I could add them and the overall design was born.

The build is based upon the traditional Vic Viper wing-layout – two prongs, two rear-sided wings and a tailfin.

It has space for a small minifigure, being positioned up side down – as this matters in space LOL

Therefore the the underside become also a legit upperside.

A friend pointed out the view from the top and bottom being nice stand alone images, so the masks had a spin-off.

 

Long talk, here’s the full show, enjoy!

A concept from 2013, now with fresh photos and a full gallery.

Construction mech, fully articulated, the radome is for counterweight balance. Be it a gravity generator, engine and energy container packed with sensoric equipment.

Jigabachi / w Instructions

Your support from the previous project, the Alakuneda Think Tank, encouraged me to make a brick-i-fied rendition of the Jigabachi seen at the Ghost in the Shell S.A.C. II animated series alongside the building instructions.

Type: Assault helicopter

Class: aerial robotics weapons platform, semi autonomous pilot/AI controlled

Estimated real life size: TBD

Manufacturer: Kenbishi Industries

Weapons:

  • retractable minigun
  • 2 independently controlled machine guns at the front
  • 2 attachable rocket launchers with 4 rockets each
  • 2 attachable grenade launchers with 8 batteries each

The model features

  • an openable cockpit including an AI controlling array
  • retractable landing gear
  • fully retractable abdomen with minigun
  • the head and the abdomen have seperated articluation joints
  • moveable rotorblade
  • de/attachable weapons under the winglets
  • a stand

– Instructions –

The model, including the stand, contains of 789 parts. All parts should be widespread available, no rare parts as far as I can oversee.

The 59-paged high-quality instructions are for sale and available on demand, just shoot me a [mail].

And a little peak into the process and the quality you can expect.

This is a further creation in the spirit of the Titan Series with a slightly more realistic/insectish approach.
