I've got a soft spot for Maschinen Krieger, the Japanese models that are seeing their influence bleed into video games. And it's very sensitive to stuff like this.

The images you're seeing below are the work of Kevin Derken, who makes such badass Maschinen Krieger gear that he flew all the way to Japan to show off his work at Ma.K. Modelers Showcase Vol 9. Where he promptly became the first non-Japanese builder to win best in show.


There's a collection of amazing photos of the event here, while Kevin's own site is here.
