Make models, not war

While surfing, I came across this fantastic diorama by Francesco Coriglione from Sicilia, Italy. The piece is entitled “fate il modellismo, non fate la guerra”, translated as “make models, not war”.

The theme of having a Gundam making gunpla models caught my eye immediately.

Upon closer examination, you will notice that Francesco put in a lot of effort. I applaud his attention for details.

Miniature gunpla kits were made from scratch, as were the gunpla boxes.

He even threw in a Millenium Falcon, an X-Wing and TIE-Fighter to complete the otaku image.

    Hello everyone I’m Francesco, yes, Francesco himself who made this diorama, from Italy!
    Just today, by accident, I found this blog.
    Chasuble made was a long work, nearly a year and allowed me to win three awards in Italy and to participate in the grand finale of BAKUC Bandai in Hong Kong in December 2009 finishing in 2nd place.
    You can see a short movie of my diorama in “moving” here:
    Bye and Thank You for copliments! -_^
