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.

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

Seasonal Greetings

Hello Friends and anyone interested,

haven’t posted much lately as I have been busy as hell. Now I have a few days off and finally manage to get a few things done. Like further developing my work space. Here’s a shot of something old but fresh shot from the new installed photo corner.

I wish you all a blessed season and all the good for the forthcoming time!

Selfness

Experimenting with mosaics.

Not long ago I was in contact with Arthur Gugick (Flickr account), who I admire for his pioneer work in seeking different methods of creating mosaics with the bricks. He was a very friendly and helpful guy and I wished our conversation would have continued. Now I know what happened as recently I heard that he had passed away.

That made me very sad. Another mastermind with the bricks like the great nnenn gone far too early.

Rest in piece and my condolences for his beloved ones.His artwork will live on! This mosaic is dedicated to him as I had him and his studies in mind while creating it.

 

Usually I don’t manage to document any progress of my stuff, but with the new work space improving I managed to grab a few rough progress steps.

My intention was to create a mosaic which is more than just a mere conversion of a prior photo edited digitally with some kind of mosaic program. Although that tool was initially involved I tried to part the part midway and try to give it a more individual touch – with the risk of failing. The coloration happened later and was done manually without any digital pre-editing.
