  1. Very nice. Cheers
  2. Very cool. Those bases are awesome!
  3. Very nice. Those engines look great!
  4. Quick question... How in the world do you paint such tiny scratches? Do you use a tiny brush or tooth pick or something?
  5. Amazing work on these! Your skills in painting such small vehicles never ceases to amaze me
  6. "Stay in Attack Formation"

    Great job! I love how you made the base.
  7. Aoshima Gigant

    Looking good Weird about the magnets. Are there other Aoshima kits of the same type of ship? Maybe the parts can be interchanged or something.
  8. I think you've a great job! If you're using this as a miniature for film use then I think you're definitely on the right track. Have a look at some of the techniques used by ILM. There models weren't pristine and perfect models made for a showroom. They were often quite quickly slapped together with pretty rough weathering. A couple of the reasons for this were the shading, weathering, etc needed to stand out on film and because you only saw then for a few seconds at a time (while in motion) they still looked amazing. If you take a look at the model in the pic below, you'll see that the weathering is quite similar to what you've already done.
  9. Revell U-Wing

    Cheers Jake. I was actually considering doing a Hasbro version but I've got a few other projects I've just started and I fear if I add a large project like thew Hasbro U-Wing I'd never get any of them finished
  10. Amazing job! You've captured the feeling brilliantly.
  11. 1/500 Revell JJ Enterprise

    Great build! I've always loved the JJ Prise version... so huge and stylish. I think you've done amazing work on the lights and azteking.
  12. Bandai 1:144 U-Wing (Red Squadron)

    Very nice work! The red markings look great. I love the fleet pic also... they look great together.
  13. Revell U-Wing

    The kit originally had a green light inside the cockpit and a small speaker for laser sounds attached to a simple circuit board with built in switch. I just cut them off the circuit board and wired LEDs to the original connection for the green cockpit light. I had to cast clear engine nozzles but you easily just drill out the centres and get a very similar look with blue LEDs.
  14. Finally got around to finishing this one off. I was going to make a rocky desert base but decided just on a plain one as I've got too many other projects I'd like to get started on. I'll still make the desert base for her but I'll do it as a side project. All in all, this was a very fun kit to build. There's a few small inaccuracies but they are easily fixed and builds into a very nice model for the price.
