Beetles, Tortoise & Fatties

First up are three Diving Beetles that appear both in the Pailsen Files series as Marine specialist mecha, and in the Armored Trooper VOTOMS Stage 2;  Kummen Jungle Wars segment of the original series. Two are primed with Citadel Foundation Catechan green, while the middle is in olive green, which is much easier to apply over the foundation green. I have another couple of these and intend to paint this unit up in a jungle stripe camo.

Next is Mellolink in his motorcycle and side-car combo and my one and only Standing Tortoise of the Secret Society,  not yet cleaned up and primed. This is one of the two enemy mech designs that appear in VOTOMS, being seen in the Kumen Jungles Wars segment.

The other main mech type that Chirico fights are the Balarant Union Fatty's, which I have none of at this time. They look like this:

The above is a picture is from the Takara F144 Series 3 box set, and if anyone has any of these they would like to sell to a good home please contact by leaving a message here?


  1. I might have a single sprue with a fatty buried somewhere deep. I will see if I can find it. I would loooooove a couple of Tortoise and a couple of Bersergas. Don't know if they made any in 1/144 though...

    1. Let me know if you find it, and what you want for it. I do PayPal, so I'm sure something can be organised?

      AFAIK the Beserga wasn't done in 144th, but you can get it as a larger gashapon.
