  1. Thanks It's not too late to tell you about it, but I don't have any photos really. When I do the next figure I will try and take some photos and post to in-progress. First you need to source the digital asset either from the game if you know how, or there are certain sites of an "east European" nature where you can find such things . If you are interested, PM me and I can give you a link. Once you have that you need to edit it so it's printable by a 3D printer. With this kind of thing it's mostly a case of extracting the head from the low-poly figure mesh and running it through
  2. Here is the second in my series of Star Wars women pilots -Iden Versio, the leader of Inferno Squad, plus her TIE/Ln fighter from the Battlefront II game. The TIE Ln is the Finemolds kit with a standard imperial paint scheme plus Inferno Squad Markings. Paints are all Vallejo. Underneath Iden is the Black Series TIE pilot and the main changes involved dremelling down the suit bulkiness and chestplate after removing the chest box and adding the "O II" to the backplate. The belt is the original one with scratch buil
  3. Well Evaan was at the Battle of Scariff, but the pilot you are talking about is Wona Goban I think?
  4. Ten points that man! I am currently making an R2-KT to go with Evaan from a slightly battered R2-D2 on Dagobah I picked up from eBay.
  5. Hi Everyone, this is something I've been working on as part of a bigger project to cover the (rather neglected) female pilots of the Star Wars OT era. Each project will have a craft and figure. For those of you that don't know, when they were made, ANH and ESB had no female pilots, but ROTJ was supposed to have them. They even shot video of three, but apparently test screenings of ROTJ with them in got negative comments about women in combat (this was 1983) so they took them out. Except one - an A-Wing pilot called Sila Kott who you can glimpse for a second before her death. But they over-dubb
  6. Hi Julian, they're not *bad* at all! The standard of painting is fantastic like the rest of the kit. It would be such a shame to lose the colour that figures add. It would be easy to remove the W-SS decals, give them all black unis and revert to Heer Panzertruppe. Chris
  7. Hi Julian just been catching up with your amazing build. As the attention to detail is so spot on with the vehicle I wanted to say your figures uniforms are slightly wrong. The original figues portray Army Panzer troops. You have modded these into Waffen-SS figures using the other insignia but there are a number of errors : Tank commander cap insignia is still Army Eagle insignia should be on left sleeve for W-SS, not right breast (you have the correct W-SS pattern eagle though) Totenkopf divison troops usually had skull collar patches not SS runes Cuff title is too lo
  8. Outstanding work. I have one in a similar state to how you started. Now you're inspiring me to do the same! I wish someone would bring out a First Order Star Destroyer...
  9. Nice job of weathering the black scheme, always tricky! In fact Poe and BB-8 do fly a blue/white T-70 in the film - it's the ship they try to escape Jakku in at the start of the film.
  10. Thanks! I got the Bandai kit on EBay from a reliable Chinese seller called goodjoy. Stuff comes quickly and shipping is free or inexpensive. I got the Brienne figure from Forbidden Planet.
  11. The Star Wars Bandai fest continues! This time it's their 1/12 Captain Phasma figure. Another superb kit that goes together without a hitch. Handling the chromed plastic is quite tricky as you can't fix mistakes like with other kits, but thankfully as the kit is well engineered there weren't any disasters! The only painting I did was a coat of matt varnish on the undersuit to bring the shine down and the small black areas on her armour. I also added restrained amounts of panel wash to bring out the details of her armour and tinted the rifle light gold using gloss varnish with a touch of trans
  12. The bases are really cool, much better than what comes with the kits. I noticed you have tinted the FO TIE transparencies red. The Bandai box shows it that way on the box art, but no other reference I have seen does. Did you have any other source for it?
  13. Star Wars started the idea of 'The Used Future' all those years ago. Before that, pretty much all SciFi was Star Trek shiny. Your R5 is done in the finest tradition of that. Excellent work
  14. Further to Wayne's answer, the cockpit has space and locating recesses at the back for the gunner and controls. The SF Bandai TIE has another sprue with the pieces. Looking at it though, it's hard to see how either crew could eject through the hatch without losing one or more appendages!
  15. Doh! I knew there was something I missed... thanks, post edited!
