Starship Modeler - The complete information source for modelers who build sci-fi, fantasy and real space subjects


By Guy Garrisson

This is the Fuchikoma, from the Ghost in the Shell mangas, by Alpha. I don't know what the scale on this is, but it's a pretty decent sized model. I primed it in chrome silver, and applied about six coats of clear gloss red (all handbrush work here). Details are done in copper and gold leaf. I grimed it up with a lot of washing and swabbing. Of course, I had to add some extra hoses and antennae, and I had to rebuild the gattling gun, as the original bits were pretty warped when I got them. I think mine was a recast as there were some parts missing right out of the box.
