Why it took me so long to find Kow Yokoyama, I don’t know. But better late than never!
I finally discovered the work of talented Japanese artist Kow Yokoyama while searching for a model kit of the Pit Road Jim Diving Suit (I will write another post about that area of interest another day!). I came upon model kits for the Maschinen Krieger (Ma.K ZBV3000) and while researching further, I found out just how extensive Yokoyama’s work is. I now have my eye on a number of kits of his creation and books chronicling his work in the SF3D series. The subject of his work is right down my alley; WWI and WWII armor and aircraft, scale model making, space-age, science fiction, and kick-ass mech suits and technology.
I’m excited to use some of his work as inspiration and reference for my next technical 3D modeling project. Here are a couple examples of his work:
