Mecha Musume

From Steven's blog, commenting on the -tan profileration...

It's gone well beyond the Strike Witches phenomenon - now everything is up for -tanning. A few examples...

Presumably, from the "Big E" patch, the USS Enterprise
Maid Spitfire, with incongruous Bren gun
A slightly loli Tiger
The Great Marianas Turkey Shoot
Twin Danish battleships, the Peder Skram and Niels Juel
EDIT: Just saw this and had to add it... the Weighted Companion Cube!

I remember once coming across a picture of Enola Gay-tan... complete with stuffed Little Boy. Kind of a haunting image, really, and I wish I'd saved a copy of it. Anyone know where one may be found?

1 That "Great Marianas Turkey Shoot" picture is magnificent! I love that the Hellcat has cat ears. (Of course!)

The artist of the Enterprise one missed an opportunity to get her WWII battle pennant (one foot long for every month away from the US) in there as, say, a hair ribbon or something.

When the Big E came home after WWII ended, it was so long they needed balloons to lift it into the air...
