Cowboy Bebop Diorama 01 by ogamitaicho Cowboy Bebop Diorama 01 by ogamitaicho
FULL VIEW PLEASE !!! :D

Hi everyone ! :)

Long time that I didn't posted something new on dA ! ^^;

I really appreciated the Cowboy Bebop serie so I want to say that this diorama is more a tribute to Cowboy Bebop than a special scene of the show.
You may find some details that are related to the serie.

It took me about 6 months of free time work to complete this ! However, it took me years to bring all the 5 kits together !
The Spike is a Thai recast, one that I had for about 3 or 4 years, the Faye and the Ein are HK recasts and the Ed/Jet are some original kits that I bought directly from a Mandarake shop in Japan thanks to the help of a French friend.
The main difficulty was to find Ed & jet because they are so rare !

The figures and background are mainly painted with acrylics or laquers.
Most of the furnitures and accessories are scratchbuilded by myself.
I totally build the background with wood, metalic veneers/papers, and a lot of different materials.
I designed on Illustrator the labels on the bottles to match better with the anime and added some details.
I used 13 Leds to light the scene.

I have already published a full WIP on some modeling forums that I will try to post here, however, there are so many pictures that I have to think about the way I will present it on dA !

I hope that you will like it as much as the fun I had to work on this project ! :)
Thanks in advance for watching, every comment will be fully appreciated so feel free to write a word if you like it ! \\(^_^)//

First, I'm not the sculptor of this model and I do not agree with you at all. I find it pretty nice. I mean that comparing to all the Spike's garage kit I know, as far, this kit was one of the best...
Let me give you an advice : be more humble, when your sculpting skills will have get this level, I think that you will be more rightful to write a fair critical... :sarcasm:
I had no intention to "hide" him, on the contrary... It's just because how the diorama is set and his face was more difficult to shot...

Second, if you don't have more constructive comment related to my diorama, please don't do it... :spammer:

Yep, that would have be nice to see more episodes ! ;)
I had a lot of trouble to gather all the figures because Cowboy Bebop resin kits are not so easy to find especially in the same scale...

I agree. Bebop is one of a less than a hand full of amines I actually like.

I had this diorama project in my mind for a long time, the most difficult was to bring together all the main characters with the same scale... ;)

Resin kits are very expansive you know,
It took me years to find the (Ed + Jet) kits that were sold together... As written in my description, I found them thanks to a Friend that traveled in Japan and seen them in a store by chance...
The price was 15000 yens => about 185 US dollars just for the unpainted figures ! ^^; => [link]
Fortunately I could had Faye, Spike and Ein resin kits for a cheaper price ! :)

Of course! I just adore Ed so much, I've never seen a character before that I've wanted to exist in real life so much :XD: Is there a way for people to exchange US money for Yen? that would be pretty awesome. I'm saving money for lots of things though, and right now I am searching for a small motor scooter, because I saw a picture with Ed on one, and it inspired me to find something that's in-between a scooter and a moped (like a really really small moped.) Anyway, thanks for the information! maybe one day I will be able to get at least the Ed figure(:

You're very welcome, :D
If one day you are able to get the Ed+Jet kit, feel free to tell me if you have some questions about resin model kit painting process. BTW I had made last year a mini-WIP for the Ed painting job, you may find some tips => [link]
