  1. Hello, It will be my first model build. I am used to painting gaming miniatures and larger busts, but I would like to try something new. Millenium falcon starship always fascinated me. Since I was a little boy I always wanted to build it. I have chosen 1/144 scale because finished product is not gigantic and can nicely fit in the shelf, on the other hand, model details are still superb. I was lucky to get this one really cheap. I know that recent released version has some minor bugs fixed, but for me this already is supper cool (by the way, you can read more about it here: https://
  2. R-33K Protocol Droid Bandai 1/12 Another repaint of Bandai's C-3PO to add to the collection (I still haven't built this kit as it's intended subject yet). As with the previous ones, this is a non-movie droid of my own design by the name of R-33K, or Reek to his friends (if he had any). He's clearly not had the best of lives, and is probably even more decrepit and useless than Boris. No real modifications to the kit apart from the various hacks and gashes, and the missing arm, the joint for which was made from spares box bits and a few lengths of wire.
  3. Hi ! here I go again with another bandai SW model. this time is the rebel ship Bwing as seen on the return of the Jedi. for me is one of the most badass ships in the SW saga. once again I looked for some tips and I find an amazing step by step tutorial https://www.themodellingnews.com/2018/11/build-guide-andy-moores-172nd-scale-b.html thank you @Andy Moore ! -I removed the canopy for the pics to better show the cockpit details. -this kit can be improved with the bandai Led unit. ( I will buy soon ) here's the pictures :
  4. This is a “what if” I just finished with an AT-ST from Bandai in 1/48th scale. To me it’s quite clear the influences used to create the Empire aesthetic in the Star Wars universe, so instead of doing it with the usual light grey scheme as seen in the Forest Moon of Endor, I thought to be more interesting to run my imagination free and place it in the eastern front during the second world war. I used some Tamiya 1/48th German Infantry figures and I made this simple vignette with some snow melting and mud. The Bandai kit is really detailed and fit perfectly without the need of glue
  5. "What a piece of junk!" This is my build of Bandai's 1/144 Millennium Falcon from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Weathered with acrylic and oils. I also installed an LED strip and battery box inside.
  6. Hi all and here's some Falcon for a Friday. Really enjoyed this one which I started earlier this year but got distracted by group builds. The build thread is here but to recap: Kit: Bandai MillenniumFalcon 'Lando Calrissian' version Scale: 1/144 Build: Out of box Decals: From kit Paints: Tamiya black as primer, Tamiya White, Klear, Flory Models wash, pastels, finished with W&N satin varnish. Extras: Engine & cockpit lighting kit by https://www.captainjacksmodels.co.uk/ Thanks for looking, stay safe and happy modelling! Der
  7. Well, after searching and searching for a suitable base I have chosen to use the support of a photo frame. If someone wants to see the process that I have followed in this model, they can do so at the following link. Andrés S.
  8. Hi all, So to go with these two tiny TIE Fighters, I've decided to have a go at this one which was a Christmas present from my lovely wife Bandai_Solo_Falcon_box by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr What's in the box.. Bandai_Solo_Falcon_contents by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Compared to the Revell Easy kit.. Bandai_Solo_Falcon_size by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Started with the cockpit - primed Bandai_Solo_Falcon_Cockpit by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Started painting. Great detail on those tiny sea
  9. One of my quickest ever builds at five hours total, here's the Bandai 1/350 Millennium Falcon which I've just finished. A snap kit, which was perfectly moulded with no fit problems at all, only let down by the thick and unsticky stickers. Tiny little thing, less than four inches long, but I've photographed it with a single directional light source and fiddled with the backgrounds a bit, to give it a more suitable setting... Cheers, Dean
  10. Finished ! These little Bandaï models kit are superb. Very fine détails and very easy to build. As this Tantive IV is the very first spaceship seen in the first movie, this model must be done !! I hope you will like it. Alain.
  11. Hi all, I started building an MG Gundam kit recently - the Hyaku Shiki 2.0. It's the one with all the gold plated armour parts. Not much to show yet - I spent a few evenings cutting out and cleaning up pieces, and this week I've painted all the frame and detail parts. It took five airbrushing sessions - partly because I only have enough clips to do a few dozen pieces at a time, and partly because it just takes *ages*. Almost everything is painted with decanted TS paints over the plastic (no primer) and there are a few bits and bobs in Alclad. Hopefully
  12. I have been a bit busy getting my push iron ready to start a new job in 4 weeks, it's close to home so will be cycling to work, 7 miles each way..... Gulp. As I was rummaging through box's I came across this old kit I built years ago when it was first released, its the OVA version and I though it was time to show it some love. I have lost all the extra parts like the other unicorn horns and amo packs and the horn I have is bent and broken but we will see what I can do with it. The plan is to paint in a few shades of white and grey and re color the pink phycoframe green to match the 1/35 bust I
  13. Hello Dears !! Just let me know if I'm in the right place for such a build !! I spent my week End at a Made in Asia convention with the kids !! it's not the first time, but I always wonder about these kits !! And yesterday, I jumped in the game and bought one !! I suppose that you both know these beastie, I mean the kit, not the kids !! But I did'nt know, I even did'nt know if there are rules in it or paint scheme or so ! Here are the sprues !! I will just have fun and try it !! What is for sure is these kits are damn good !! In no time,
  14. Visiting Australia last year I happened to walk into a toy shop in Brisbane and found they were selling the Bandai Star Wars kits. I treated myself to a Star Destroyer and the Millennium Falcon, the latter for the princely sum of AU$29.99: As a palate cleanser between more involved builds, I decided to have a go at it today. It's a pretty simple snap together kit: I'm always impressed with Bandai's mouldings. They may be expensive, but there's no flash anywhere and the fit is no less than perfect. Consulting with a knowledgeable party (cheers Rich) about co
  15. After finally achieving a finished model in the last Bank Holiday Blitzbuild, I decided to see if I could repeat the success, so here is my entry for this weekend of holiday fun. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr
  16. I couldn't resist the temptation of starting this so I just put the inner frame together, an amazing bit of kit with so many amazing details tucked away.
  17. To “celebrate” the 50th anniversary of Cup Noodle ..... anybody know the correct FS-number for a ramen noodle? https://comicbook.com/gear/news/cup-noodle-ramen-model-kit-from-bandai-order-amazon/
  18. Some more from the archives... The Mercer was completed at the start of 2006, and the Bugatti that summer. Both were built straight from the box and I still have them although a few repairs are needed due to their size and several house moves... The Mercer went together very easily, but painting all those black stripes took a lot of care and patience. The Bugatti however was an utter pain, as the floorpan / wings wouldn't sit in the right place on the chassis, and also the bodyshell was badly warped which caused issues with both the fit of the doors and also of the body to the floor /
  19. RX-78 test type. My custom exceed gundam head modified into what I think a prototype RX-78-2 head might have looked like. The standard RX-78-2 was the other one of these I built for a bit of a before and after.
  20. Good evening ladies and gentlemen! In this build I intend creating a somewhat different looking AT-AT from the canon version many of you are used to. Hopefully this won't upset too many of you! Those of you familiar with my crazy thinking know what's in store! Below are some examples of the type of thing I'm looking to achieve. My rational behind a scheme like this is that the Empire was looking to both improve the survivability of its mobile heavy assets and intimidate the enemy with an imposing scheme. With something as big as an AT-AT being difficult to hide in a desert envir
  21. As a complete break from scale aircraft, tanks and cars I’ve built a Sci-Fi model as a pleasant diversion. This is the first Bandai kit I’ve made and I’m impressed how well detailed it is with hardly any flash and I must say it goes together extremely well. The most intensive/difficult task was the painting and weathering (my Achilles heel) which I’m not overly impressed with if I’m brutally honest, but nevertheless I’ve decided to present it here for you amusement. Any constructive criticism gratefully received.
  22. Hello and welcome. This area of Britmodeller is new ground to me I have been stalking a few builds over here recently looking for inspiration on building Gundam suits. (Excuse me if my terminology is a bit off I’m new to these kits). I’m finding some good WIP builds but nothing that goes through step by step like what I’m used to on the other side, mainly it’s finished kits or finished parts, not a bad thing but I was looking for a WIP that might help me build THIS. . I was gifted this lovely looking kit by a work friend on my birthday in April who has far too many in the stash.
  23. Bandai BB8 and Bandai First Order Stormtrooper. plus Black Series Firetrooper action figure. ” Yeah. You’d better run you little *#@% “
  24. Hi all and hope you're all staying safe and keeping well. This was a little build to restore the mojo - they're the Bandai 1/144 TIE Fighters from Force Awakens but backdated to Empire-era and one converted to a TIE Brute. Build thread if you're interested is here but to recap: Kit: Bandai Vehicle Model 004 First Order TIE Fighter set Build: One built OOB and one converted to TIE Brute Paint: Halfords Grey Primer, Revell Acrylics, Flory Models Wash Bandai_Model_004_Tie_Fighter by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Bandai_Model_004_TIE Fighter_2
