Type Odin Collage by enc86 Type Odin Collage by enc86
With hoards of raiders, giant monsters and other ne'er-do-wells in the wasteland, something had to be done. That is why the UC(United Colonies) formed and decided to start fighting back. Using old world blueprints,they built from the ground up, the ultimate in wasteland purification, the Type Odin MBT.Named after and imbued with an old world gods power, the Odin strikes down any in its way. forged and built with their advanced technology the Odin features a new 240mm magnetically propelled particle cannon, capable of cutting thru the scum like a hot knife. to offset the ratio of degenerates numbers  to Odin's, a secondary advanced targeting and auto loading TOW has been equipped to engage multiple targets at once. A Browning M2 machine gun is center mounted to pick off any survivors.With a full suit of advanced tracking,targeting,EMP protection and MP3 player, the Type Odin is ready to take on the abominations that only the waste can conjure up.

Here is my 1/35 Type Odin tank, kitbashed from a Tamiya Type 90. Built with bits bin and scratch build parts/details. i added in an assortment of 2 Photo etched sets(lion's roar and Eduard), 2 resin stowage sets (Verlinden) and set of resin tank figurines(Verlinden).painted with enamels, weathered with art acrylics and MIG pigments . mud was a pigment/dirt acrylic resin mixture(MIG) all hand painted with the exception of primer,flat black/white and top coats(spray cans) this tank took me around 5 weeks and is my most detailed tank by far.Lets just say i put ALOT of work in on this one. 

Overall I am pretty happy with how this one came out and for the most part i had no major mix ups or mistakes(just the usuall tons of tiny ones)Working on this thing was really fun but in someways quite stressful($$ of project,PE,color, photos,ect) i am not super happy with the mud but it was a new material/mixture so that's something ill hopefully improve on. Could probably use some more pigment dusting and a few touch ups, but ill wait till i get it on a base to mess with that. i am happy i got it together and its done, i have have spent wayyyy to much time on this thing XD  up next is a kitbashed Humvee to match the Odin and then a base/diorama for both of them to be featured on.

as always questions,comments and suggestions are welcome.

thank you friend!
this build almost kicked my butt. two sets of PE,two sets of resin stowage, resin figures and overall kitbash. it was a tonnage of work but it all was worth it. i am still pretty proud of my self for this one.

All the work was well worth it!  Seriously, this is absolutely Gold Medal award winning stuff!  And again, the photos are just fantastic!  I feel like I'm seeing shots taken from a quality modeling mag!

Great looking model.  Really awesome detail and concept.  Did you build the main gun from scratch or is it from some other kit?  I also like the other models that you have built though this is currently your masterpiece.

sorry for the incredibly late reply.

yea the main gun was a scratch/kitbashed. really a hodge podge of parts and styrene and wires. plates/main berrel were from MG gundam kits, there is even some 1/24 car parts gun up to make the inner details/wire intakes.

Hello enc86, your sculptures are wonderful. congrats!! I am a digital hobbyist and just for the sake of fun thought I could place the first pose of your tank in an environment. It is not for profit or anything, and if you are unhappy with it I will remove it right away. Here it is: distantstarr.deviantart.com/ar… let me know :)

ahhhh really really awesome, super happy with your results! makes my day that you used my work like that, i would say you did it justice. feel free to use any of my models for future projects and let me know if there is anything i could do to help you. if you ever need a certain angle or photo i can do that no problem for you.

anyways thanks a ton for choosing my work and giving me a heads up! you do great work!

I am very glad that you liked it. I actually did not invest too much time in the work as I was not sure of your reaction. I am really grateful. Your sculptures are as beautiful as your attitude. I will make sure to ask for your help in my future projects. Thank you so much again :)

Yeah, like the composite here with the different angles.

Really like the Boom Box strapped to the back. ;-)

Best hope the Hordes don't target that LPG tank on the back.  It might make a pretty big Boom, and scorch your water cooler and bedrolls...  ;-)

thanks, sometimes its hard to capture all the details in one shot, so i like presenting projects like this.

lol yea they had to have some tunes!

 i was thinking that and wondered how long it would be till someone said anything lol

As the name implies, I have a reputation for "seeing" things....  ;-)

Maybe they play old Frank Sinatra tunes to put the Hordes to sleep!

(Oh yeah, I do pottery and sculpture, so I have lots of painful experience trying to "capture all the details in one shot".  I've tried to figure out how to photograph figure sculptures, and sometimes will put up a side-by-side shot to show more of the piece.  It's tough!  Sometimes I just skip trying to capture "everything", and go for the more dramatic shot to convey more of the feeling of the figure. eg.:  observer14.deviantart.com/art/… .)


Great, creative piece here, with lots of levels of detail!

ahhhh awesome, and eye for detail can be a rare thing.

yea if you had asked me a few years ago, i would of said i would never learn or care about the photos. now sometimes they are harder than my builds. sometimes coming up with that one good angle can be quite the accomplishment.

thanks once again, glad you enjoyed it and appreciated my detail.

yea i went with a coil/Gauss gun design, the cables provide the magnetic charge inside the cannon.
lol sure they do, that was some of their recovered tec XD


yea this was ALOT for me and was pretty challenging. After the $$ of the kit and all the fun stuff to go with it i was really worried i would mess up something. lucky i think i pulled it off and it came out really decent.

wow :O great model!
I actually didn't expect it to be a sculpture but more like a 3D render (just realised "reallife" sculpting seems to be underestimated these days :I but tends to surprise more than zBrush etc.) 
you have a great sense for detail and i love the mixture of the "classic" tank and the futuristic cannon

:iconenc86:
enc86 Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2013
thank you very much!

yea i sometimes hear that, and i tend to see alot of projects like this done thru renders and such. unfortunately/lucky i dont have any skills in that area and try to recreate some of my ideas with scale models.
there is something about obsessing over tiny bits of plastic that is quite soothing for me.

and thanks again, this is by far my most detailed project and probably took the most work. was really challenging for me and happy i got it done alright. tho i am sure it will not be the last time i make something like this.

this semester i got started with modelling in blender, sculptris, zbrush and such and it's quite easy once you know the drill.
but i really miss the haptic feedback in 3Dmodelling compared to the good old sculpting/legos
on the other hand you can mess around and try out more
pros and cons everywhere :D

thanks on the favs btw :)

Awesome work! Looks really great! I was lookign forward for this model to be finished and it was worth the waiting. The main canon reminded me of the Coilgun (aka Gauss gun) and  who knows maybe we gonna have tangs/weapons based on this? 
Keep up the awesome work!

:iconenc86:
enc86 Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2013
thanks buddy, i tried hard on this one.

it is in fact some sort of coil gun, you called it. i had done a bit of resherch into future/teroritcal wepsons tec befor i built this. always been a fan of Gauss type weapons(video games) . it was pretty fun mocking up my what if on the design.

yea you never know, i am sure there are top secrete weapons out there, this could look strangely like a r"real" one!
Reply
:iconhackeye:
hackeye Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2013   Traditional Artist
No I like it even more :D
I am a fan of new weapons as well especially when they rely on sth else then the stuff we use nowadays. Well I just made a quick check and Railgun weapons are different from Gauss guns. Altough they are pretty alike there are some differences. Maybe building a turret based railgun could be your new project? Maybe as defense turret for an outpost in this post-apocalyptic world? 
My motto: The bigger the better or more applying in this case the faster the better since this will inflict more damage.
The design looks really good, I envy you for your skills! 

Yup well time will show what  mankind brings on stage to extinguish their own kind but I am keen to see it anyways. Maybe there will be a way to use it for civil stuff as well... such as demolishing buildings xD

:iconenc86:
enc86 Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2013
yea they are a bit different, but this tank has the wires that enter the cannon, in different places like a coil. yea i have already started thinking up a true rail gun design of some sorts. was thinking about srtaping it to something but maybe your right and i should make it some sort of hard point or defense turret.

maybe, we can only wait and see.

In my opinion it would be hard to supply a Railgun with enough energie if mounted onto a vehicle but it is the future there everything is possible! So I am lookign forward to how that will turn out.

Sincerely a future weapon freak :meow:

lol but really that's kinda how i felt building it. it was pretty stressful in some parts but by the end i was very very proud. i can see a few things i really improved on and really went all out on detail. its kinda hard to even see all of it from the photos,a friend of mine IRL was pretty dang floored seeing it and say it looks like my best.

you know me i am a stowage addict, only takes a few fully loaded builds to get addicted lol.

Yeah its certainly one of your best works. I like the stencils along the barrel shields. Gives it a nice little mech feel to it.

yup, quality over quantity. i was burning thru kits for awhile and realized i was never gonna have room to display everything. i am sure i will still do some quick builds, but i think i have decided to shift over to more detail and longer works. that way i don't fill up my displays to fast and i know whats going in, is worth to show off.

thanks man, i think its my technical best. i put in everything i know how to do and then some on this thing. think i learned/got better at alot of things in the process of this. at least PE is not soooooo scary to me anymore. anywasy i gotta build a few more things and get this one a base. after all this work, think this might go to a con with me
