  1. Like the open cockpit, especially as it means all the details and pilot won't be hidden away at all
  2. Looking good! Will you be weathering it or sticking with a clean look?
  3. Cool, this is coming together nicely, great work with the wheel!
  4. That is sweet! I love macross kits, would love to have a go at 1/48 scale one like this, the 1/20 one sounds amazing, must be huge! Will be watching
  5. Nice! My only experience of a kotobukiya model was one a Border Break Zebra unit I found I had to do a lot of masking out because of how they had molded the parts. How are the frame arms models to paint?
  6. Very cool, used to love playing Zone of the Enders ony PS2
  7. That sounds really cool, even just having a lift crater base would be good
  8. Cool! Look forward to seeing this come together, I've always wanted to have a go at bashing together a pod racer
  9. Bit more work done on this guy, got the sculpting tools out and got cracking on his other hand. Same as before I used my same scaled skeleton diagram to get the size and rolled a bit of clay for the palm/wrist and a seperate bit was added for the thumb IMG_20220511_185440436_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220511_185659232 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Sliced the fingers and shaped them out before cutting them to the right length.

IMG_20220511_193546714 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220511_193552064 by Nick Frost, on Flickr The bottom finger in the first pick looks a bit bent, so I reworked the shape a bit IMG_20220512_185125282 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220512_185146154 by Nick Frost, on Flickr This is actually the 2nd hand I've done, had a quick go at it a few weeks back and it went terribly and looked awful! So its not always smooth sailing! Much happier this time although it didn't feel as natural as the first one, I think its just because maybe I was rushing a bit. Anyway I'm pleased with how it looks, and the plan to get it on the gun is to just slice his thumb off so I can get it back on the rifle and then just glue his thumb back on, simple solutions are always my preference! So it got backed with the cut off thumb IMG_20220512_192154537 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then I just roughly held it together to check how its going to look, think this is going to be pretty massive when all together! IMG_20220512_194439199_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr Next up I'll have to cut the wrist part right down at the right angle to sit in the position I want, and also I need to get the bit of armour plate on the back of the hand. I'm going to do that in greenstuff, didn't do it in clay with the rest of it because I want to make sure when it goes on it buts right up against the forearm armour as it should. Thanks for looking, more soon
  10. That's looking very impressive! Just add a few internal greebles and you could make a factory diorama of it being built!
  11. Yeah that's a good shout actually, I think I'll add a bit of that, it does give a good sheen. Thanks for the suggestion
  12. Had some shed time so cracked on with more work on the pulse rifle! As I said before the round bit at the front of the barrel needs to be gold, and I noticed on a lot of the images I've seen of them they have a line detail going through it at an angle, so I masked it off and carefully painted it with some gold humbrol enamel (good old original 16 metallic gold from a dusty little tin!) IMG_20220509_192138350 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220509_192658610 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Next I dry brushed the black bits with some silver enamel to bring out the details and give a worn look IMG_20220509_194231258 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then I rescribed the lines IMG_20220510_194514250 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220510_194530976~2 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And to be honest I was so happy with how that came out, thats how its staying. So I then used some graveyard dirt pigment to add shadow and grime around all the edges/lines and VERY sparingly did some fine chipping here and there with dark brown enamel applied with a sponge. IMG_20220510_195641150_HDR~2 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220510_195655200_HDR~2 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220510_195836688_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr And oh boy am I happy with that! Only minor thing that needs doing is the red squad markings I'm going to put on the barrel, other than that yeah its finished. I really thought the gun may end being the weakest part so pretty pumped, and feel like its the boost I needed to spur me on. So next up, red markings will be done on the gun as the final touch and then I resume painting the torso of the body and also now the gun is done I can start to sort out the hand that will be holding it which is the only remaining small bit of sculpting left. Thanks for looking, more soon
  13. I'm sure it would have looked very majestic as it spiraled in to the ground!
