Awesome Star Wars Model: Abandoned AT-AT Walker

Abandoned AT-AT Walker

The 1/32 scale AT-AT was created by scratch modeler Dimitri Kaliviotis.


This entry is a heavily modified ATATRON kit. The ATATRON kit is a garage kit which is not commercially available but a few models have been made over the years. I managed to get hold of one because I was commissioned to put some finishing touches on the prototype model and to make the molds for it, so later I was given one of the castings as a “bonus gift”. However the ATATRON I got was one containing mostly reject cast pieces. So Instead of repairing the reject/miscasts I decided to use those imperfections in my favor.

  12. Amazing work Dimitri! The weathering and discoloration, combined with the “damaged” body and missing hull plates, make for a remarkably realistic final product.

    I’d love to see a hi-res picture of this.

  13. Very rough work. Shoddy and appears rushed.

  14. Awesome!! AT-AT’s are not good for street fight in a city. The enemy could sneak and put a bomb :)

    This piece outlines a contemporary obsession with modern entertainment and fiction as a form of escapism, combining the stark reality and despair in an image portraying the aftermath of war. Moving and very poignant.

    well…heh… It really didn’t start off as a “statement”, for that I’m sure, but along the way it sorta looked like a commentary on the perpetual milking of the franchise and especially the prequel thing. I thought that by means of making, remaking, packaging and repackaging etc the original series is treated like it’s handicapped and dated. I quess they had to sell out the old generation in order to sell more to the new one…

  20. World War II Weathering on SW models.. pretty Awesome

  21. Never seen one in this bad of shape It,s so broken I don,t know why it was treated like this I wish I had one.

  22. freakin dope!

  23. I wonder what happened to it in battle?

  24. this is a fantastic representation of Imperail Tech falling and being taken over by the locals. not the watch tower scafolding on on the one leg.

    nice work dimitri. i would like to see what else you work on

  25. Needs foliage growing up the legs – very cool – love your work..!
