what scifi stuff has the postman delivered to you today?

Recommended Posts

Picked this thing up at at Aldi recently here in Oz, so it wasn’t really delivered, but, you know.

Looks pretty fun, it even has little lights and sounds!

I’m sure it’ll sit in the stash for ages, but it might make a nice change of pace from plastic and vinyl, so it might jump the queue ahead of some other kits I’ve got.

I've been away from updating for a while due to the holidays, and it's taken a bit to get back in the swing of things....but the holiday postman brought me one of these table top photo softboxes and some cheap-but-effective LED lights:

So, now I can finally properly photograph my finished models.

I’m glad you added the assembled version too as I was trying to work out what it was and then scrolled further down and “Tadaa”

My second Shin Godzilla vinyl kit has arrived. Produced by X-Plus/Bandai, this time the vinyl is made of a luminous purple. The dimensions are the same as the previous red vinyl kit, the pose this time depicts Godzilla unleashing his atomic breath.

The is how the kit should look once assembled:

Got them from eBay. The red one was about £130 and the purple one was about £100. There was one seller offering both kits in the same listing if I recall correctly.

They are nice kits, very finely detailed.

Any idea how big it is when completed?  Does it scale with the Bandai EX figures? Or is it bigger?  

 

Surely at that price it isn't in the Ultraman 500 scale.

They're about 10 inches tall when completed, approx 1/474 in scale

Not really the post man, but after seeing Steve's (Dances With Wolves) build of the 1/48 Fine Moulds Incom T65 X-Wing, my lovely wife bought me the Revell version (the one I'd seen in our local model shop just before Christmas) for my birthday - admittedly my birthday isn't until July..... but still.

So, a massive 'thank you' to my wife! :smile:

Godzilla inspired marital aids? Whatever next.:blink2:   

:D

 

 

Anyhoo, picked up a cheap ‘n cheerful little kit. Nowhere near as detailed as some of the other Falcon kits available, but scratched an itch whilst slogging through a (never-ending) 1/32 Bf109 build.

Within a few hours I’d already cracked it open, slapped it together, and plonked a couple of LEDs in it.:whistle:
