A new custom has been added to the bottom of the model kits page, the König Wolf Silver Fang! This is a page I've been excited about adding for a long time. Though this kit was finished in 2020, 2021 was such a chaotic year for me that it took forever to finish the photo taking and page setup. Silver Fang is a 3D printed conversion kit for the Tomy (motorized) König Wolf, developed, 3D modeled, and printed by the amazing Torrigan, who put countless hours into making sure that every single detail was perfect. Before starting work on this project, I never imagined I'd get my hands on a Silver Fang, and I'm eternally grateful!
As this has been such a long-standing holy grail for me (over a decade!) I've made the files available for visitors of the website, so you can download and print your own version! The custom page goes into more detail about what you need to watch out for. My only request is that the files not be used for commercial purposes, either directly or indirectly. I'd love for this conversion kit to remain free above the cost of materials, so that everyone can enjoy it~
A second new custom, the Bio Tricera Pyrite, has also been added to the model kits page. This is a straight repaint, utilizing a used Bio Tricera sold to me by another fan. It was a good test in dealing with silvers, as I've wanted to see how to best paint Bio Zoid armor for a while. All in all pleased with the results!
I've posted a first ever custom to the site! A custom of the WF kit Gilvader Modoki. Although I love starting custom projects, finishing them is... uhh, a lot rarer, haha. So for now customs are linked at the bottom of the model kits page, until such a time that there are enough to warrant their own section on the site. Hopefully more will follow later in the year! This was a great first kit to work with.
Several videos have been posted announcing the winners of the My Zoid Contest 2020, held in Japan by TakaraTomy! There were a lot of cool entries to these contests, so it's definitely worth checking out.
