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. (Update: Link removed because the website is gone.)

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.


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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
