iMech News 2.15.2101

Another month and time for another iMech news update! This time we show off some Ian McQue’s Remora build-ups and the latest for the upcoming  figure, set, a cool new Flyer from Christophe Desse, and the long awaited progress shots of Scott Robertsons Orbship!

Christophe Desse’s Red Star 47

[singlepic id=398 w=420 h= float=]

I first saw a photo of this cool Russian looking flyer by Christophe Desse, a 3D artist for Naughtydog, a few years back on the Concept Ships blog. I loved the design, saved it to my HD, but thought I was looking at a photo of a finished model kit so I didn’t attempt to contact Christophe about producing it. Luckily, he contacted us and as it turns out, the image was not a finished model, just a 3D render made to look like a completed toy/model.

Christophe has been hard at work making small design changes to the flyer and designing all new figures to go with the kit. Look for the Red Star 47 flyer to be available for preorder November 2012.

KIT RELEASE DATE: November 2012
KIT SCALE: 1/35

Scott Robertson’s Orbship

[singlepic id=141 w=420 h= float=]

Been a while since we had news of this, but here are some in-progress renders of Scott Robertson’s 1/48 scale Orbship. Scott is still fine-tuning and adding details and 3D artist friend of his is working on a figure to accompany it.

Adrian Smith’s Frankenstein

[singlepic id=353 w=420 h= float=]

Frankie is at the caster slated for an April 2012 release. Meanwhile I’ve been working on gathering materials and doing the print work for the kit. Because it’s really cool, I wanted to show off the chain maille that will come with the kit. It’s hard to see in the renders, but there’s a bit of maille under the belt and shoulder armor. Each kit will come with a 3 inch square sheet of 1/8″ steel ring maille to use to complete the kit.

Ian McQue Figure Set #1

Here’s a few shots of the 3rd figure in the upcoming Ian McQue figure set. Like the Rigger and Mopper, this waving crewman figure was modeled by Rishi Nandlaskar. Watch for upcoming shots of the final two in the set!

“Ian McQue’s Remora” Build-ups!

[singlepic id=422 w=420 h= float=]

Some really great build-ups of the First Edition Remora kits are appearing on our forums. Check them out here and leave the modelers some comments. I (FichtenFoo) finished my two Remora a few weeks ago. (pics here) The blue one is mine and the red was done for Ian based on the box art. He should receive it any day now so I can’t wait to hear what he thinks!

There’s still a few 2nd Edition Remora kits available for preorder. Click here to place a preorder of Ian McQue’s Remora.

 

Dmitry Parkin’s Vampire Preorder Info

The Dmitry Parkin Vampire is available for preorder right now and will be shipping next week. Watch for an upcoming build-up of the Vampire by the very talented Rick Cantu of Dragonstooth Miniatures!

iMech News 1-23-2012

Welcome to another edition of iMech News! This time we’ll announce a new upcoming FichtenFoo/MechaSkunk product collaboration, a new Ian McQue product, preorders and restocks, and some new pics of upcoming releases.

FichtenFoo’s Squid-Shaped Submersible!

This counterpart to the steampunk-styled Fish-Shaped Submersible was started by hand almost a year ago, but due to a less than awesome 3D print of the drill, was put on hold. Rob Fuchs of MechaSkunk who did the drill 3D file for me originally has taken on finishing the rest of the craft in 3D based on my sketches and half-done master parts. He’s adding some of his own touches and the progress is awesome. Can’t wait to see how the dive-planes and interior look. While the Fish-Sub is a peaceful civilian styled craft, the Squid is indeed a predator. Using the enormous screw propeller to streak through the water, it can ram vessels or use its tentacles and “beak” drill to fill their hulls full of holes. A true terror of the deep! 1/35 Scale! Look for the squid to be available late-summer 2012.

Chompbot #5’s 3D Print and More Jake Parker Figures

Ownage sent us these images of the 3D print before they ship it to Jeff Brewer, the 3D/traditional sculptor who will be adding some final touches by hand. The bot is roughly 8.5″ (215mm) tall and looks to be a very fun build-up. The body is hollow to allow for lighting.

Jose Alves da Silva is almost done with the Chompbot Figure Set as well, and here’s a look at two more figures in-progress. The other figures can be seen in the last news update here.

Ian McQue Figure Set #1

We’d hoped to have this done before releasing the Remora, but it is coming! Here’s a preview of two of the five figures coming soon in the first Ian McQue Figure Set. The “Mopper” and the “Rigger”. These figures, sketched by Ian and 3D sculpted by Rishi Nandlaskar will look great on the deck of the Remora and future Ian McQue ship releases. We hope to release these in Spring 2012. 1/35 Scale!

Vampire, Fish-Sub, and Remora Preorders

The Dmitry Parkin Vampire and FichtenFoo’s Fantastical Fish-Shaped Submersible are avaiable for preorder right now and will both be shipping in Early February. The Remora will be back up for preorder on January 31st 2012 and will ship sometime in March.

More Remora Goodies

I got an image of the Captain figure’s 3D print today. Looks really nice and I can’t wait to see it in person. The model was done by Fin McGechie based on Ian’s sketches. We’ll have more Ian McQue figures available later this year that’ll be perfect for the Remora and future airship releases.

[singlepic id=243 w=420 h= float=]

I also wanted to show what the final print will look like for those of you that have ordered the version with the signed print. Obviously this hasn’t been signed yet, but shows the format. The size is 11″ x 20″ to allow it and it’s tube to fit within the box.

Scott Robertson Collaboration

[singlepic id=145 w=420 h= float=]

Industria Mechanika is excited to announce we will be offering a resin kit of one of Scott Robertson’s ship designs. Scott is known around the world for his creative vehicle designs featured in his Design Studio Press books such as “Lift Off,” “Start Your Engines” and “DRIVE.” His next collaborative book will feature a very wide range of new ship designs. The book is titled “BLAST” and you can see some of the work-in-progress here: www.drawthrough.com

Help decide what we should make!

With literally hundreds of designs to choose from our first task will be to decide which one to build. To this point, we would like to entertain suggestions as to which ship it should be. Please make suggestions in this forum thread.

Derek Stenning Concept Designs

[singlepic id=120 w=420 h= float=]

Next in our parade of amazing concept artist collaboration announcements is the amazing artist known as Derek Stenning. When I first saw one of Derek’s Entartete Kunst paintings last December, I was immediately intrigued and started searching and downloading every image I could find. Immediately I wanted a model kit of his designs complete with random wires, huge helmets, and floating orbs. I love soviet-era design concepts and these have that and an interesting twist.

Industria Mechanika is excited to work with Derek to produce some amazing figure kits based on his paintings. The first will be based on the image above  titled “Dystopic”. Check back soon to see how this project progresses!

Here’s a small sampling of Derek Stennings paintings. More can be seen at his website: Born In Concrete

Industria Mechanika would like to take this moment to announce our next collaborating concept artist: Adrian Smith! Adrian is a fantastically talented illustrator and concept artist and will be working with us to create some cool original figure & character kits. You’ve probably seen his illustrations and concepts for Games Workshop.

Adrian is currently working on some concept sketches for an upcoming Industria Mechanika figure release. Check back soon to see what he comes up with. I’ve seen some of the preliminary sketches and it’s going to be amazing!

Here’s a small sampling of the works of Adrian Smith. More can be seen on his official website and his CGhub page.
