  1. I find that thinning with Mr. Color Levelling Thinner makes Tamiya much hardier.

    The MSM-07 Z'Gok 1/144 HG

    I've always wanted the hover truck. I've got them in 1/144 and 1/100 but I'd still really like a 1/35 one....to sit in my attic an never get built.

    The MSM-07 Z'Gok 1/144 HG

    Looking rather tasty. Just an FYI: It's easier to die the sponge first before blending (or at least I find that to be the case). Just water down some cheap acrylic from the Works and soak it, then pop it in the oven on the lowest heat. Also, a good cover for wire armature trees is artist's latex. You can buy it by the gallon on Amazon. It allows you to build up multiple layers and impart texture more easily.

    Nice. What are the sci-fi door looking things on the right? Sci-fi doors by any chance?
  6. I like the layout as is. It keeps the Regult as the focus (as it should) whilst also allowing the eye to be drawn towards the parts that give it scale.
  7. Cool idea. I was in love with the first two ME games and have probably played them more than any other BioWare RPGs excluding the BG series (though I thought 3 was a bit iffy past the half way mark and Andromeda is, from all reports, terrible and is the likely reason that the franchise is indefinitely 'on hold'). You should add Blasto to the list, for comedic effect if nothing else.
  8. Well, the pilot's 10m tall so...
  9. Comes with both the 108 for Kai and Hayato's 109, but per Bandai standard they're stickers.

    Lovely. I've got a Gelgoog Jaeger that's been on the go for a looooong time.

    Are you going to be replicating the missing detail on the 'chest' area between the front legs, and fixing the feet? I've got one but not being an armour modeller lack the required greeblies and the additional parts from shapeways cost as much as buying a cheap 1/48th tank kit (so in fairness that's what I'll likely do when the time comes).
  12. Go these two lovely books from my sister and mother respectively for crimbo: And these two pre-festive purchases arrived from Japan today. A revive Guncannon (which I already have one of, as well as the original HGUC and the MG but it was going for less than £7 posted so I couldn't resist) and a 1/100 Tieren Ground Type, which I've been after for a while, so when one popped up at retail price of 2,800 Yen on Amazon I jumped on it.

    Your Plans for Modelling in 2018

    I've got a Zaku II F2 to finish (and start if I'm honest) by my birthday, and I'd like to get at least one MG kit done by the end of the year.

    why snap togheter models aren't more popular?

    A lot of the ire I see directed against snap-fit kits is of the 'no true Scotsman' variety. Which at least makes it easier to ignore. Personally, most of my stash is made up of them (I've probably got 100+ 60' robots piloted by angsty teenagers) which suits me well as actually constructing most manufacturers' kits is about as fun as root canal work as far as I'm concerned, painting and detailing is more my bag.
