タチコマ 1/24スケール ウェーブから
Up next is a Tachikoma. This is a 1/24 scale plastic kit from Wave. It’s from the Japanese animation “Ghost In the Shell – S.A.C. 2nd Gig”.
And I can’t believe how fast I got this kit out. Only 1 week?!? Well, that says a lot about the type of kit Wave puts out. Little simpler construction, but the finished product still looks nice.
The blue was a combination of cobalt blue and regular blue, with some white and purple thrown in. The shiny bits are Alclad chrome, over a gloss black base.
These are probably my favorite characters in GITS. Spoiling here (but it is an older series now), but if you weren’t moved at the end of 2nd Gig, when they sacrifice their AI/consciousness satellite to save everyone, you’re a cold, hard person!
Talking with Christine about the merits of sentient machines.
Kit was finished on June 10th, 2017.
