Yamada, the master of dioramas, is probably my favorite.
I'd like to add that there are a number of builders at kaijukits.com whose
collections pictures inspire me & give me ideas about ways to build
and paint my own kits.
Sakai ( of course ) but Bill Gudmundson is a close second. Bill has a
comparable eye for pose, attention for detail, and ability to bring a sculpt to life.
|Favorite sculpt: Wave Baragon, Kaiyodo Godzilla 1968 & Kaiyodo Vinyl Godzilla 1964 (1/200 scale).|
|Favorite kit that you've built: When I look at the 3 Toho spaceships I've scratchbuilt - the JX-2, MOONLIGHT SY-3, and the P-1, I get a great sense of satisfaction. Even though there are more talented people than me in the hobby, and better sculptors and model-makers, it doesn't detract from the feeling I get when I look at those ships and think, "Wow, did *I* really make those?!" After doing those, I feel like I can make any monster or mecha of my own... given enough time, of course...|
|Kit that you're most looking forward to building: Daimos Moonlight SY-3! You can never have too many mecha, and that model look so well done that it's impossible for a hardcore mecha fan like me to resist.|
|Paint preference: Acrylics (Polly Scale is my favorite brand).|
