HOMO FERRATUS - by makadi3000

I'm a designer currently living and working in Zurich, right in the middle of Europe. This blog is about my original toy work and hobby interests. I dedicate it to Japanese artist Kow Yokoyama, creator of the Maschinen Krieger universe, which has always been a teacher and source of inspiration to me, as he is for many contemporary concept artists and illustrators of the 21st century.

Thanks for looking! - Adi D'Agostino aka makadi3000

Next step is to give the right dimension to the rear, middle and front cylinder. The head is made from a fuel tank (Italeri Truck Accessories).

I added end caps, which are used to cover screws on furnitures, to get the raised shape at the ends of the cilinders...

One side of the head has a spheric end...

The main tank is made from two
bottle caps of unknown provenance and the rear cylinder is a small 1/35 oil drum also with raised end caps.
