Post Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake "Metal Gear D" Model
At one of the Kojima anniversary parties they had a large display of MGS artifacts in cases. In one case were the two original MSX games along with an amazing model of the Metal Gear D-

I'd always wondered what the story was with it but I recently came across this site-
http://walking-tank.com/gears/d.html

And in the bottom right hand corner they talk about two old advertisements in a couple old MSX magazines that used the model!

Bad google translation-

■ the first three-dimensional model
as described above, D breaks became the first three-dimensional in Metal Gear history. Its three-dimensional model, has also appeared in magazine ads before and after sale.
Canon 75mm ver. Between ver. Equipped with missile pods, two types of configuration options are being properly reproduced already at the stage model is excellent. In particular, the minutes were found only in advertising at the time, Cannon ver. Has become now may be a high degree of rare paintings.
※ Both Mon 7 MSX magazine (published by ASCII Corporation), 1990 (top) and the August issue of the image (bottom).

Does anybody here happen to have these issues? I'd love to get scans!

Also found this at the very end of the MG2: SS Manual-

DESIGN WORKS OF METAL GEAR

The main cast of "METAL GEAR 2 SOLID SNAKE" is, above all others, the mechanism "Metal Gear D".

The Metal Gear of this time was required to be, remaining the plot and silhouette of the last MGEAR1 design, at the same time gothic and with enough reality. For this, we have done model making and designing simultaneously, constructing a design. Sticking to the details, a design standard required , of which cannot be doubtful to exist in real world.


Passage found here-
http://gtinter.msxnet.org/Setting2.htm

Sounds like the model was built during the development of the game for reference.

Interesting stuff.

I plugged the images into google and found a pair of sites.

Along with a bunch of other ads, this site has the two ads you listed and 2 others and they're a little bigger. The latter of the two you have here also has a better (but watermarked) picture here

Awesome! Four Ads!

I also found this variation-

Also in that first link they show a SF3D (Machinen Krieger) model below it! I'd always suspected that the Metal Gear D model was inspired by the SF3D stuff in Japan at the time but it seems that the reference model was actually BUILT from pieces of them.

The legs and the "headlight" thingy match up perfectly to the "Krote" model-

Before tonight the closet SF3D model I had found so far was the "Jerry" model-

Is anybody here active on the MSX forums that would be willing to ask for better scans perhaps? I'd hate to just sign up to ask for something but those photos in the ads could really help my search for the correct model parts.

I'd kill for a scan of this photo in particular-

Tons of clear detail there.

I love this kind of detective work! :)

(It would be best to upload the images to this forum instead of linking external ones, for posterity and having a backup)
