The Chief Smeg replied to TimMather's topic in Science Fiction DiscussionGot this yesterday courtesy of Warren at Tyridium Models, it’s the JPG Productions 1/12 scale Imperial Probe Droid: The lighting kit is also from Tirydium and will be my first foray into a lighted model; now all I have to do is find the time to actually build this - my stash grows but I’ve not built anything for months!
Hi folks, I've been running around like a mad thing organising Scale Models Expo and haven't really had the mental energy to finish any of my ongoing projects, but I did want to build something new for the show. So I started these on Wednesday night and finished them before midnight on Friday. For me that's unspeakably quick I would have waited to take proper pictures but that didn't seem to be in the spirit of the adventure so here in all their awful glory are my mobile 'phone shots of the models on the table at Expo. (Kelkavia class High Speed Astro Battle Cruiser) (Destoria class Heavy Astro Battle Cruiser) No, they didn't win anything and nor did they deserve to! But they're big and green and they give my Cosmo Fleet something to shoot at. I will produce some studio pictures on Monday hopefully. Cheers, Will

Looks great, nice job. Always been a little apprehensive about the vinyl kits but do have an Alien 3 that I'm working on in fits and starts. You have done a very nice job, really looks the part. Cheers Richard

The Chief Smeg replied to TimMather's topic in Science Fiction DiscussionThat does indeed look cool!
TimB replied to bgire's topic in Ready for Inspection - SF & RealSpaceThanks, Bruno. Very worth the effort to bring this thread back. An inspiring model! Regards Tim
Small update! I got started on the last bit of sculpting; the large open flower that will be under him. I rolled out some sculpey and wrapped the armature, started with a thin layer that I could really press in to the wire to ensure good contact and a solid base to work on. 20180413_131253 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then I added another layer on top that I could smooth over 20180413_132925 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180413_134412 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180413_134607 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180420_133942 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And I poked a hole in it, this one is going to have its small inner mouth open with some smaller tentacles coming out 20180420_134340 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And I made a start on the inner ridges. 20180420_134802 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Next up I'll add the lip to the edge with more sculpey and neaten up the ridges. Thanks for looking, more soon
rockpopandchips replied to TimMather's topic in Science Fiction DiscussionNo idea at all but it looks cool. It was from Aliexpress. BIKE Its 1/20 scale so I might add a M.ak tech to a small dio around it or I might add it to my TY build and scratch a nuclear warhead on a sidecar.
