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.

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:… let me know :)
enc86 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2014
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.:… .)

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

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

lol i could see that or some slayer to pump themselves up XD

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.
