  1. I have a suggestion! DON'T waste your money on an airbrush! EVER! I am drawing MUCH inspiration from this build especially given the fact that you achieve a finish better than using an airbrush! KUDOS Sir!!! How long did it take you to master this technique?
  2. Maybe Bandai just figured out that they can charge more for their stuff? I mean I picked up my first vehicles (72) while I still lived in the states for ridiculously low prices like 25 bucks or so US. After seeing the quality of their stuff, I would pay a little more! Like I said though, this spoiled me and I have complained about the price of the 1/72 MF (both PG and reg) as being WAY over priced and yet a LOT of people obviously disagree with me and are quite happy with their purchase of the MF. So if they know they can charge more it seems reasonable for them to do so.
  3. Thanks photobucket for ruining yet another thread!
  4. I LOVE your technique and the results you have gotten so far! The one tone paint has a "depth" ?, "tone"? I dunno how to describe it but I like it! BTW may I ask how you achieved the wear on the drive sprocket teeth and idler wheels? they are subtle and look fantastic!
  5. This is a VERY nice build! I decided to start scratchbuilding a 1/12th scale one figuring, "it's all straights and angles!....how hard could it be?" It is still to this day sitting in the closet of doom! Nice to see someone who has the taelnt to put these deceptively hard vehicles together! GREAT WORK!
  6. I think that because we all have such different tastes and cost of production, no one can ever make a stand that all, or even most people like. I myself mount mine on thin rods (tubes if they are lit) but I have to admit, when ya think about it Bandai did a great job on their solid, functional stands and their DS tiles are added gravy. one of my x-wings, y-wing, a-wing I scratched gear and display them that way the others (TIE etc) are on thin blsck rods. This one however is a conundrum for me! I think it would look better in flight on a thin rod, BUT on the other hand makng a believable landing gear and showing it that way would be quite interesting! DANGITT! I think I will HAVE to get two!
  7. With the 144 and 72 x wings it would be quite impressive if not a little too deep
  8. I see a forced perspective diorama in my future
  9. I've heaard that is why we can't get the figures in Canada, copyright infringement. It's gone pretty quiet on a lot of boards lately! I think it's because those of us who are rabid SW fans want ships from the old movies and Bandai has to make the ships with the greatest sales potential but so few of us are impressed by any of the "new" designs. I too, have a list of ships and such that I would like to see, but how many others want a probe droid or a 1/12 escape pod to put 3po and r2 in? In regards to that tiny falcon, I would love that one too ( it will go great as scale comparison with my 350th Enterprise) but sadly I cant get those teeney kits here either and will have to order from abroad.
  10. Such a shame! My Bandai "love affair" started so strong! Great kits at great prices! and then came the Falcon! way too much for a 72nd scale Falcon (to me) and this new release is too much for a small kit with no decals, photo etch AND blue engine lenses! I might pay that kind of money for a 48th scale or even twice the money for an even larger scale, BUT a 72nd scale?...seriously?
  11. After seeing any of the "new" designs, I am hoping more and more for a B-wing, Probe droid, gunship, at-te or anything really from ANY of the first 6 movies! Keeping my fingers crossed!

    Star Wars Films

    All in the original chronological order from episode 1 (Darth Maul lightsaber scenes are THE best!) to episode iv. Add Rogue 1 in before a new hope and pretend the current drivel never existed. OR conversly, watch all the ones you like and the rest!
