I use the first time this section in the forum to show one of most pretty projects: A full scratchbuilding collection of players ships in video-games from old MSX home computer.
This machine is a early iniciative of Bill Gates to create a universal computer family in early 80's, this project is made with ASCII partner (The MSX is a Microsoft Extend), Gates end the project in USA to create a development in a DOS system, but the Japan continue this project and many factorings build and comercialize this machine based on Z-80 processor.
This type of computer is many popular in Europe, Japan and Brazil in 80's and early 90's many softhouse (famous today) write games for this system (Konami, Ascii, Telenet, Taito, DB Soft, Compile), and this libray of games is very extense.
So I decide scracth ships from my favorite games (I played in MSX in my adolescence in 1980's). I fixed the goal to made ten ships from classical games for the MSX System.
This scratchs made without 3D software and unfolding is a multimedia. I use paper in same thickness, and types, epoxy putty, biscuit (mass of could porcelain), metal wires. All materials is a very low cost. The models are painted with artistic acrilic paint...
The first model from collection is a player ship with combat sattelite from Space Manbow, a 1989 game write by Konami for MSX 2 system, one of my favorite shoot 'n' up of all times... This model is made in 1/144 scale used booklet game, end cinematics sequence, and in game sprites...
I painted with a mixture of light gray and yellow to made a whatering, the display is made with paper for reproduce title screen and a plastic disc...
Next ship: Zanac AFX-6502 from Zanac game - Compile - 1986
