  1. 1/6 Spiderman by Horizon

    Thanks! And yeah i agree I'd love to see some new vinyl kits being produced, its a swine at times but i love working vinyl kits, just a shame a lot of them are now out of my price range Cheers! Yes actually i have, but the closest I've got to actually got to doing it is recreating the web cape of Spiderman 2099 on a modded version of this kit for a build a while back
  2. Great work, thats a lovely metal finish on it!
  3. Thanks Gimme really appreciate the compliments, glad your enjoying my build. And I'm really enjoying watching your sand crawler come together, having it as part of a large diorama sounds amazing! Just a small update, still working on the tentacle vines, want to get this done but trying not to ruch it as I want to keep them as natural and non uniform in their positioning as I can. 20171207_132925 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20171207_134453 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20171207_134515 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20171207_134542 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Will continue with this then start on the alien flowers. Just a word about where I'm going with this (as I changed how I want this to look but dont thing I mentioned it??) There is going to be a large closed up flower head that he's going to be shooting a laser through, and probably a tentacle, in one shot. The little one in front of his left leg will be open, the one at the back I made a support for will also be closed, but underneath him I'm going to do a large open one, this will be sculpted separately for ease of sculpting and painting then glued on after baking. In terms of vine tentacles grabbing him the supports on his feet will become two wrapped around his feet and I'm also going to do a third large one reaching for his thigh, this will mostly be for support as he's quite heavy now, the body is already nearly 2 pounds and he'll have batteries in his backpack too so I think its necessary. Thanks for looking, more soon

    Nice start on the paint, its looking good
  5. Right so I got the sculpey over my now nice and solid foil, made sure I pressed it down firmly to make sure is solid to work on. 20171201_133953 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And I'm just making a start on the root/vine/tentacle base covering 20171204_133957 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20171205_132659 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20171205_133103 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20171205_134504 by Nick Frost, on Flickr So thats where I'm at for now, going to continue getting the base covered then I'll start on the carnivorous alien plant heads Thanks for looking, more soon

  12. The Toxic War ~ HG Zaku High Mobility

    Like i said in the WIP Brian, this is a really cool action diorama, you can really feel the motion!
  13. Thanks Brian, I just hope it grows into something good! Okay so coming back to it after it had cooled the next day this is what it looked like 20171129_130621 by Nick Frost, on Flickr So its cured the whole thing which is fine but its warped a bit, which I'm guessing is because the main base wasn't the main focus of heat which has caused an imbalance in the curing. Which is no proplem, and at least the cracking means its dry! And the wire supports are now nice and solid which was the main goal So all I did next was pack some sculpey into the raised bits around the edge to support it and even the bottom out again, making sure i'm pressing down pretty hard on the cured top bit to ensure proper contact with no gaps which will cause problems later. 20171129_131404 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20171129_132205 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20171129_132507 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20171129_133130 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20171129_133506 by Nick Frost, on Flickr So once now thats done I can start to build up the middle with foil 20171129_133753 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20171129_134027 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then I rolled out some sculpey to lay over this (I always roll it between a large sheet of baking paper just to keep the rolling pin clean and no residue on the table) 20171129_134754 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20171129_134820 by Nick Frost, on Flickr However after I did this I realised that the way I did my foil was a bit dumb! I'd left it smooth in layers, so its was a bit slippy and because it wasn't scrunched up tightly it was also a little springy when pressing on the clay, so plan B kicks in. I scrunched the foil up tightly into hard pieces and used pva glue to ensure they will hold in place and be a solid base to work on. 20171130_132043 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20171130_132826 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Okay so thats where Im up to, once the glues dry I'll lay my sculpey over again and start laying down a base covering of vines, so lots of sausage rolling coming my way!! Thanks for looking, more soon
  14. 1/6 Spiderman by Horizon

    Thanks for the kind words guys! Actually it wasn't too bad, no denying it was a bit of a tedious process, but I used a .01 fine liner which made it much easier than it could have been
  15. Awesome seeing this finished, it looks great Andy. The base its very alien and cool looking!
