Sometimes my arms bend back

Orthrus!

I have been making a concerted effort to right the wrongs in my studio. If you build models, you have them too, and the big one is probably all of those unfinished models that take up space on shelves and in boxes. Well, I made a promise to myself that before I would start yet another NEW project, I would finish the ones that sit neglected and sad. Here is one such model – the homage to the Maschinen Krieger Cerberus that I began in 2007, and that I have not touched for four years. This has the dubious distinction of being shown to Kow Yokoyama, who politely offered a few pointers on what he would do, if this were his model. It’s a rookie fanboy thing to do – throwing your “original” work at the feet of “the master” and asking for feedback. All this is is a riff on something he made in the mid 1980s, so I’m grateful he gave it attention. Maschinen Krieger as a hobby over all is always a little mysterious to the non Japanese, so we take what we can get, and I have been fortunate to have been given a lot over the years. So here is the model as of 2008 – I will update as I begin to work again.
