I’m not sure what this VSF machine from the Japanese anime movie Steamboy is. It was amongst the goodies in my previously mentioned parcel of Bandai VSF toys from Japan.
I suspect it is some sort of bathysphere designed to plunge the ocean deeps. But despite diligent searching in Google Images, I haven’t located a Steamboy still that shows this machine in action, to be certain of its purpose. The nearest I’ve found is this:
Anyway, a bathysphere won’t be much use in a VSF wargame. So I’m thinking I might make it into some sort of flying machine by adding a large rotor on top, or suspending it from a balloon. Then it can rain destruction on my enemies.
Anyway got any other ideas for it?
Keep watching … more VSF goodies yet to come!
