If you’ve been following the development version of GearHead Caramel, you’ll see that I’ve been getting more work done on skills and the new electronic warfare/computers system. Hopefully I’ll make a new release soon… but not this week because I’ve been working on a papercraft model of the SAN-X9 Buru Buru. Last weekend at Comic World Busan I noticed that there wasn’t a scrap of mecha merchandise available, so I decided to change that.
This model still needs its shaka cannon and axe, but overall I’m pretty happy with it. This version is 1/200 scale, so about 8cm tall. I’m going to print out some for Comic World Seoul next weekend. If they’re popular, I want to do a fancy set with instructions, an information card, and maybe stick everything inside a file folder designed to look like a 1980s mecha model kit.
What other GearHead mecha would you like to see given the papercraft treatment? Any suggestions for other GearHead merchandise I could make for cons?
