Kallamity Briegel sniper mecha

Recommended Posts

Hey chaps and chapettes. First Post on the site so be gentle! 

Been really getting back into modelling the past year, used to post regularly on other sites and gradually getting my mojo back! 

So, I started this beautiful kit a few months ago and have been chipping away at it between other projects. For those not familiar, the kit was designed by Luca Zampriolo , a master scratch builder/mecha designer and owner of Kallamity. 

 

I've decided to modify a few elements. I've scratch built and sculpted a new head for the kit (the black and white bit) from milliput and gubbins from the spares. 

Started painting the general scheme. Lots of weathering to come. 

Also added flare dispensers, I used a set of cobra company resin 1/48 hind that never got used!

Also started the base. Its huge! I'm going for a mossy forest kind of look, still a lot of work to be done here

What a great start to very cool kit, the new head is outstanding and base is looking great as well.

Ooo I love the Briegel, will enjoy this one! Already really like the mods to the head design, and that mossy base is great. From the photo it gives me a Studio Ghibli feel, like its a bit of ground lifted from Laputa!
