Tachikoma 3D Model?

Dear lazy web,

I'm hoping someone might have some handy links to a (preferably free) 3D CG model of a tachikoma that I'd be able to use in a s3kr3t side-project of mine (oops, I guess it's not so secret anymore, huh?). Since I'm planning on animating the tachikoma, it would preferably have hooks for this or be componentized or something (not sure how 3D CG models are "built" to allow animation, so... excuse my ignorance).

Failing that, a technical blueprint would be greatly helpful if I am forced to model my own.

Credit will be given to the modeler (or draftsman) in my project if it ever reaches the point where I release it to the public (which I'll do if/when it becomes more than a pipedream... currently just in the planning stages and the project is likely beyond my abilities, but we'll see).

You could ask this guy:

All on the first page of google search...

yea, I came across the google sketch model but it doesn't load

As far as the second link, I came across a few links where people said they were working on making tachikoma models but none have made their model files public.

I might have to give these guys a poke via email and see if they'd be willing to share (which I was planning on doing if I didn't come across any publicly available models).

Anyways, thanks for the help.

I know a guy who made a model, but he's since mysteriously disappeared from the Internet. Maybe if I poke him hard enough...

hi did you ever find a 3d model? If so i would great appreciate it also.

Im working on making one right now. you can contact me and i would probably be willing to share it depending on what it would be used for and what kind of credit would be given.

That Sketchup model will import into 3dsmax using opencollada.
