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

Laputa - Castle in the Sky Robot Soldier

Got the new 1/20 Robot Soldier Kit by Fine Molds with my last order - a beautiful snap-together kit of the very artistic and iconic Laputa (Castle in the Sky) Robot by Hayao Miyazaki from 1986. A quick and easy model, slightly modified (POPBOT style, lol) and rescaled with the 1/35 boy figure - hope you like it ^^

I am a great fan for Hayao Miyazaki's work and Ashley wood's, and Laputa robot is certainly the number 1 favorite! so does popbot, cos they have so many similarity yet they are very special on their own ! I adore your work! !! Great honor !
