News: Home made mecha “Kuratasu”

Over at Gigazine, they’ve got a pretty mad piece on a chap called Kogoro Kurata who’s basically building his very own armored trooper (which he’s calling the “Kuratasu”). The chap has already made a 1/1 sculpture of an ATM-09-ST Scopedog but this will actually move. Using a quadrupedal design, each leg will contain its own wheel propelled by a diesel engine under the torso. The arms and the legs will also use the engine to power the hydraulics. At first glance it seems to share the lens setup on the head from the X-ATH-P-RSC Blood Sucker from The Last Red Shoulder but the overall design understandably looks far more industrial. When all’s said and done though, this is really quite awesome indeed. Of all the mecha that could be made in real life, the AT’s from VOTOMS have always been one of the best contenders. We wish Kurata-san the best of luck with his endeavours!

Heh heh….cool!

Now…wonder if I can afford one?

And I also agree that the AT designs from VOTOMS could certainly work in the real world. Kunio Okawara was ahead of his time when he designed them back in the 1980s; it’s great to see that they still hold up.

Indeed!

Impressive!

this is pure passion (and money!) 😀

WAW…..this perfect robot’s….are you bought kuratasu robot’s
