This one is based on the spider tanks from Ghost In the Shell.

Nice!
If you don't like the news then go make some of your own.

It's all hand made ?
That's really clean !

I just don't like the canon turret much. It doesn't really fit with the overall design IMO, and if it has some blowback (not sure of the word), the mecha may have a hard time to take it.

A great thing in the design, is that you hesitate to define the eyes as the triple-camera ball or the 2 big circles near it. I can't remember if it was also the case on the original design (what's it's name by the way ? I know there's tachikoma and fujikoma, but does the big tank for GITS 1 has a name ?).

Thanks Tachyon

Falk, I agree about the eye, the cannon doesn't bother me as much though. If I ever going to do an upgrade on this one, I would give it a more stable feet. It's hand made, thanks for the comments.

I don't know the names for them, just from what I rememer. There are the Movie 1 version, TV Series (heavy and medium type), and the small blue one.

-edit
it was this tank, I still don't know the name.

Some of the earlier sketches. The first one was more based on the Movie version.
