Is a fighting robot from a Japanese animation program of 80's, Armored Trooper Votoms. (Vertical One-man Tank for Offense & ManeuverS) The robot was utilized as a personalized tank in the show. Designed by Kunio Okawara, who designed many of Japanese robot characters such as Mobile Suit Gundam. I like the scope dog because it was not ridiculously huge one of the kind robot. It somewhat reminded me of ww2 fighter planes or small armored vehicles. I enjoyed building a model kit of the robot when I was a young boy. Found a picture of the 1/1 scale robot the other day and remembered how much I liked it. Maybe we should build a bike in the similar style. Scope dog bike, armored plate looking side panels and tanks, 3 lenses head lights, shields with hand rails sounds real fun to build.
