Sinking of the Yamato

Christophe Bongay presents a comical diorama of the last seconds of Yamato combining a few of his previous creations. There are many unique aspects of this creation ranging from the block shark to the disproportional ship, which was originally built as a Metal Slug vehicle.

    I really enjoyed looking at all the details; I remember first seeing the ship a while ago and (being a fan of Metal Slug) saying “wow”. Looking at it now I’m still pretty amazed that the cartoon-ish design works so well with this model. The guy in the midst of the fire really had a stroke of bad luck, burned and then drowned!

    P.S. I guess i’ve started a little bit of a new building technique for building little swimming people ;)

    so the soldiers stripped down to their shorts after bailing? or are these swimmers that happened to be passing by? just an observation.

    the metal gear look rocks my socks.

    Matt – they got their clothes blown off in the explosion. ;) Or they were in the shower when the ship got hit? How they got in the water first is a mystery though. :)

    All great. I love the use of the jumpers (plate 1×2 with one stud) for cartoon rivet detail
