CG Talk’s Hardcore Modelling Challenge #39 was about Giant Robots/Giant Monsters
I chose to model one of Macross’ destroids least represented in 3D form, the Spartan.
I’m back into the 3D world after almost a 1 year hiatus, joining once again one of CG Talk’s Harcore Modelling Challenges.
The theme for this edition was “Masters of Anime”.
The challenge consisted in modelling a character, vehicle, weapon or diorama based on the work of one of the following anime directors:

The final scene shows the reconstructed flying boat inside Piccolo S.P.A. workshop:
