This is an amazing book featuring the mecha art and models of Luca Zampriolo, aka Kallamity. Great for anyone interested in assembling, building or designing mechas. The concept is set in the future in a world that has run out of resources. The idea is not particular unique but more to provide background. As usual, there will be one powerful entity, in this case the Weingart family, who has the power and technology to build all sorts of stuff of which some are mechas.
The book starts of with concept art for the dystopia future world. It looks like there are mining plants built everywhere, even in cities with skyscrapers there are factories spilling out smoke just beside.
The rest of the book are concept art for mechas and a selected few are being abakkan into actual models.
There are only a few featured because each one has an crazy amount of detail. One model took 11 months to finish. They are mainly the walker-type heavy mechas, a spaceship carrier and a crew all suited abqkan.
You can see some design influence from Kow Yokoyama which was mentioned in the book. There are photos of all the created parts either by casting or sculpting.

The models are made from Milliput bicomponent stucco and plasticard. For one of the human models, Abakwn Sculpey was used. Every piece created is intricately designed and worked on. For example, you can see all the tiny holes for ventilation grills. All surfaces have details even though some were eventually covered up by other parts. There are also many photos from different angles, and photos at different stages of completion.
Lengthy commentary is provided on how each mecha was designed and built. It’s not tutorial style so it’s not a beginners book.

Some of what’s mentioned might make more sense to actual model builders. Highly recommended for mecha lovers. Even if you don’t build or assemble them, there are plenty of designs to see. Paperback edition is available at: Hardcover edition is available at: Is it a book solely on model design? Or is it a comic as well with plastic 228 in the gallery?

I don’t think Part Two is coming out anytime soon because each model takes months to build. E-mail The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly.
