    Thanks' it was a bit of an experiment with the casting but very rewarding to get a convincing result.

    Hi everyone, my build is now completed, you can see the final reveal in the link below.
  4. Hi all, this is the final reveal for the Alien Space Jockey diorama. As I previously mentioned in the work in progress topic, in order to give the model a sense of scale, I decided to add the background as it was depicted in the movie. I tried my hand at mold making and resin casting and this was my first attempt at using these products. I'm pretty happy with how it came out, however my only advice to anybody trying to do anything similar is that you seem to need twice as much mold making silicone than you actually think you require. In order to get a nice solid mold, plenty of the silicone is required to pour into your donar part, otherwise you run the risk of distorting the casting. Also, I treated myself to a new camera so that I could hopefully improve my photography in the future to enhance my model builds. Hope you enjoy the photos. My next project is the 1/9 Dragon Man of Steel Superman & 1/8 Moebius Wonder Woman build which I hope to start working on next week. Finally, you can see the work in progress of my build in the link below.

    Dallas is inspecting the Space Jockey, Kane is checking out the melted hole in the floor, which he gets lowered into and finds the egg chamber, guessing you know the rest LOL!

    Hi all, here is a progress update on my Space Jockey build. In order to give the model a sense of scale, I decided to add the background as it was depicted in the movie. So I was going to try my hand at mold making and resin casting and this was going to be a first attempt at using these products. I used air drying clay to sculpt out the parts, then I coated it with a thin layer of fiberglass resin to lock in all the small details I added. The pictures will show the progress so far and I hope to update you all in the next week or so.

    Thanks ! Cheers Mick !
  9. Hi all, these are my next two builds after I complete the Alien Space Jockey. I may build the superman kit first, I'm also planning on maybe building a diorama to include both figures. Should be a lot of fun building these kits however I'm out of my comfort zone with all the flesh tones and face painting skills that I'm going to have to brush up on, wish me luck!
  10. Many thanks,it was hard to photograph,looks superb in person with the light reflecting off the command module and the gold foil effect,i posted the video on Modelerstube.com in the space section if you want to see the rotating effect.

    Thanks OMR, for the colour on the Kawa i used a high sparkle pearl white dusted over a silver base then a clear candy called Whiskey gold,it's all products i used in my day job painting full size bikes,it looks about right i think,and in person in sunlight you can really see the sparkle of pearl come through the candy gold. I have a soft spot for FJ 1200,had a couple of them 1988 and 1995 models,very smooth and torquey motors. I hope to pick up a H1 500 kit in the future,would look great sitting next to the 750. Good look with your Heller build.

    Kat's were never known for their comfort ! Which Bike magazine back in the day wrote that riding the big Katana was like sitting bareback on a great white shark.
