I sort of get the theme; that doesn’t really matter - that’s some good work there!

Looks fantastic. Excellent paint work.

This was a whole big thing in the 80’s in Japan.

Agree whole heartedly.

One thing - if you make a base for it don’t forget to add the “S”.

I think it was in the 80s I first became aware of them; they were stocked in one of the big supermarkets in Muscat where I was on Loan Service; there were hundreds of them and I went for a closer look, but just didn’t get it. The juxtaposition of Wehrmacht-looking things with sci-fi was beyond my ken, and then the scale was 1:20 (I think).

Since then I’ve stumbled across stuff in 1:35, so who knows? One day perhaps.

Hmmmm; for some reason I can now see the attraction. Armour painting on a sort of figure. I like it…

If anyone gets the urge to Google for this type of model/figure then

Google will usually auto correct for something like that. What you should really do is caution certain non European moderators - they might find some content too much to handle. :face_with_peeking_eye:

Having done a few of these and absolutely loving them, the threadtitle just made me look. And what it shows, looks GOOD!!

Kow Yokoyama is the creator and illustrator of Ma.K SF3D.

I find the 1/20 scale nice to work with…not too large and not too small. The original kits are all “Made in Japan,” not China, to avoid recasts.

Although I am not really a fan of his retro Post-WW2 armored fighting suits, I find that his figures are quite nice, especially the 1/20 resin offerings from Brick Works and Love Love Garden.

One thing to consider is that most of his figures aren’t armed, armored, or geared up as they use the armored fighting suits for combat. However, ETSY and Shapeways sells 1/20 weapons to arm the figures if you just want to build the figures and not the armored fighting suits.


Great paint job and build on the armored fighting suit. The weathering and face look excellent!

I used a 76mm Sherman barrel on one of mine… The Ammoknight must be one of my alltime favorite kits!

Thats decent.

Some nice builds. No one has to worry about the future shade of Dunkelgelb.

I always thought they should have gone with Maschinenkämpfer.
Two reasons:

  1. Germans love to make longass words by adding words together
  2. There’s just something cool about the umlaut. American rock bands know this.
