  1. 1/35 MK.A Whippet

    You've done a great job on the Whippet. I've built the Takom version and I have the Meng version in my stash and I'm looking forward to working on it.
  2. Antoc Merrick's "Blue Leader" X-wing Bandai | 1/72 Bandai 1/72 scale T-65 X-wing in Antoc Merrick's Blue Leader livery. Completed with Mr. Paint and Alclad lacquers; Tamiya and Vallejo acrylics; Abteilung 502 oils, Mig Productions enamels and pigments. Comments and criticism is welcomed as always!
  3. 1/100 Tiger I Ausf.E

    I've been painting a lot of these 15mm tanks lately and after doing a bunch of Soviet tanks, I moved on to this Tiger I. This is my first attempt at a German tank in any scale and I'm sure my color choices were off because I used what I had on hand. The decals were also a giant pain in the bottom to get to lay down over the zimmerit but I did the best I could. I went pretty light on the weathering; just a wash and a little bit of paint chipping. I'm thinking about adding some mud/dirt but this is supposed to be a gaming piece so I don't want to overdo it Comments and criticism are welcome!
  4. Mk.V wheel colour

    The wheel color was most likely the same as the body color, or failing that, battleship grey (which is what I believe was the color they were painted from the factory). And yes, the crew hatch on a female tank was under the sponson. On a male tank, it was on the rear face of the sponson.
  5. 1/72 Tie Striker

    No ship in Star Wars could actually fly. X-wings fly in atmospheres all the time yet their S-foils have zero aerodynamic properties. The original TIE fighters have horrible visibility because of the wing panels (they also operate in-atmosphere without any aerodynamic properties). In Rogue One, a Star Destroyer hovered, in atmosphere with its engines off, over a city. But none of this matters because it's made up science fiction and the rule of cool will always prevail over real-world physics. Trying to rationalize the irrational is a path to the Dark Side.
  6. 1/72 Tie Striker

    The TIE Striker was specifically designed for in-atmosphere operations. Noel, your model turned out great! I have one as well and it's on my shortlist of possible upcoming projects.
  7. Bandai RZ-1 A-wing

    Yeah, it did. It's probably still a little noticeable if you look at it in the right light as well... but it was close enough so I left it.
  8. Bandai Speederbike and trooper

    Very well done! The scout trooper looks great with all of the joints filled in.
  9. 1/12 Bandai Darth Vader

    Looks good. I bought and built this kit right after it was released and have been meaning to paint it. I think you've inspired me to do so.
  10. Krupp 21cm Mörser 10 (Takom 1:35)

    Thanks Andy. As I'm sure you can imagine, your build of this kit was of great inspiration to me. I don't think I can match the level of your results, but I think it was a worthy effort. When I first started researching what WWI kits were available, I found this one and it really interested me because you don't see a lot of artillery models out there, especially First World War ones (which is odd, given their importance during the war). What really sold me was the option to paint it as a captured piece with the decals and while searching the internet to see if anyone else had done one similar, I stumbled across your build.
  11. Baby Blue Leader-Bandai X-wing

    Damn! Nineteen? You're on a roll... and here I was feeling good about having four done by the middle of March!
  12. 1/72 Bandai X-Wing - Red 5

    If this is your first Star Wars build, you're off to a great start. Good job!
  13. Baby Blue Leader-Bandai X-wing

    Fantastic little guy! These tiny Bandai kits are great, aren't they?
  14. TIE Fighter

    I think the color you mixed up looks spot on. Personally, I don't fret over what the color "should be;" I care more what what looks good.
  15. Krupp 21cm Mörser 10 (Takom 1:35)

    Thanks Lloyd! Yeah, the Renault FT is next. I'm doing the riveted turret one first so I'm not going to bother with the interior. In fact, I started on it this morning and already have the hull built.
