  1. Wow that came out great! Really like the space photos, very cool!
  2. Glad seeing these finished Pete, they look great
  3. That's really starting to take shape! The legs are very impressive
  4. I've done a few dioramas using Ma.k models, if you click the below link in my signature you can see them on my flickr page
  5. Great and very detailed work Pete! Very impressive so far, and for me the first head is way better than the second. Second one looks a bit too plain and generic Sci fi I think, and the first one has a lot more visual interest and suits the cool spiny Norman better.
  6. I'm a big fan of the Ma.k universe and these look great! I really like the added curly piping on the fireball
  7. That turned out great! Thats really good work at that scale, and the plasma bolt effect is fantastic!
  8. Yeah colours are great, its looking very cool, love that shot where you can see the figures through the cockpit windows
  9. In my mind I've been imagining him as a combat troop thats got separated from his unit after a battle and is walking back to a rally point, I am planning on weathering him but I haven't decided how heavy to go. I think it will fairly light in terms of paint chipping, and I'll grime him up a little with pigments. I keep thinking about putting a bit of damage on his shoulder shield, but I'm not sure about that yet. Thanks for the interest Dennis
  10. Decided to go all in with the light grey! I like it and thought it would look weird to only have a few bits of it here and there. And I got the strapping on the legs and the legs themselves dry brushed just to bring out a bit of detail plus the pouches are now glued in place.

IMG_20220612_185358083_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220612_185443328_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr After taking this pic I thought the neck still looked a little tall so I sliced a bit off (and forgot to take a pic!) Got some grey on his hand armour and finally took the time to sort out how the gun hand will sit on the wrist, with that figured out I sliced off his wrist at the angle I need and added a bit of broken toothpick to help peg it in place. IMG_20220612_185940353 by Nick Frost, on Flickr So next job is to get the armour for that hand sculpted out of greenstuff but for now I carried on getting the light grey down on the torso and the dark grey for the straps on his arms. IMG_20220612_191727509_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220613_193736204 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220613_193755524_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr Man I can really start to see the end of the tunnel now with this guy, and I really like the light grey. I think because of his size all white was a little too stark for my taste, and I've always liked shades of light grey and white together on paint schemes. Next up I'll start getting his hands glued in place and make a start on the armour plate for the back of his gun hand. Thanks for looking, more soon
  11. Okay been making more progress with the paint, got the boots done in a dark grey, and got the first coat of red on the red bits. I'm going for a commander unit which has more red patches to signify this, he has an extra bit of armour coloured like it and he'll have a big red bit on his shield too when I do that. IMG_20220606_190251875 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then I got the blue for his skin where its poking through down and painted the rim and the circle bits on the boot light grey. IMG_20220607_194243666 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Got a second coat of the red down, and painted his hoof and side claw black (that will be eventually given a gloss coat) IMG_20220607_194256360 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220607_194303993 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220609_200839862 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then I decided to paint some of the armour link parts in the same pale grey that I put on the boots just to break up the white, I like how that looks so I think I'm going to paint the lower link on the thighs the same grey. I think it will look good having some grey on the other thigh part too just so it doesn't look like I put the wrong colour there! IMG_20220609_200848862_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr The armour straps were all painted in the darker grey IMG_20220609_200858560_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr And the only other thing I've done for now is to give the pouches from his belt a dry brush with grey, and they will be glued on next when they are dry. You can also see where I had a go at freehanding his caste markings which will be on his gun, shield and torso. I thought it might look good brushed on like its something they add themselves but now I'm leaning more towards masking it out I think. IMG_20220609_200910943_HDR~2 by Nick Frost, on Flickr So next up its more painting, I was going to edge the hip and rear armour plates in grey because of the step, but i dont want to go to crazy with extra colour so might just leave them all white. Thanks for looking, more soon
  12. Going to seriously enjoy watching this come together! Being a massive District 9 fan when I read the title I thought maybe you would be making the mech from the movie!
  13. Cool, really like the interior and the figures
  14. Finally after a ton of DIY I've managed to get some time back on this! I really didn't like how the white went down, it looked very patchy, I think a lot of it was down to the cheap black spray paint used that turned out to be more gloss than the matt it said on the label! So to remedy this I grabbed a pot of tamiya matt white for my airbrush and sprayed it over to even it out and thankfully it worked IMG_20220602_120311632_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220602_121138885_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then I brush painted over the black parts with some matt black enamel paint once the white had dried. IMG_20220603_135951127_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220603_140004260_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220604_194016361 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220605_105825839 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Only other thing I did for now was to paint the other hand just to get a base coat on it and painted over the other bits to get rid of the glass finish, IMG_20220603_140747881_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr Was so annoyed with how the brushed on white went on so I'm very happy its better now and this guy is back on track. Next up I'll just continue getting the block colours down, he's mostly going to be white with some red bits but with dark and light grey to break it up a bit. Thanks for looking, more soon
  15. Yeah Kow used all sorts, luckily for the legs and some armor bits I'm going to use some donor parts from an old Fireball suit and I still have tons of spring tube from my ma.k days which is good! Want to give it my own twist so will add some mods and details, but it's probably going to be a few weeks before I start it
  16. Cool landing gear I like the single stand design! Oh and just as an aside I know you've veered into star wars for now, but you've inspired me to scratch a bit of Ma.k myself; I bought a cheap 1/48 hughes 500d helicopter at the weekend so I can have a crack on my next project at making a clear canopy PKA H1 Heinrich suit in 1/20 scale. Cant wait to start it so want to get my current guy sorted ASAP!
  17. Nice looking saucer! Look forward to seeing more
  18. Like the open cockpit, especially as it means all the details and pilot won't be hidden away at all
  19. Really nice weathering, looks great!
  20. Looking good! Will you be weathering it or sticking with a clean look?
