  1. Here's my take on the Hasegawa 1/20th scale Mk.44 Ammo Knight from the Maschinen Krieger universe. This was built for a YouTube competition "Clean vs Weathered". There's still more I intend on doing to it, but had to stop it at this stage in order to meet the comp deadline. Cheers Richard. https://www.instagram.com/studiogekko/
  2. And, after finishing the Kreiger Vampyre, I have returned! My Vampyre build, in case anyone missed it, was based on a gluebomb Hornisse 'Battlefield taxi' which was incredibly kindly donated by @SafetyDad. So all praise to him again! The Armoured fighting suits are a form of powered exo armour to protect the troops in this war, 800 years in the future. There are (I think) at least three variations of this basic design, and I'm fairly sure that this is the Heinrich version. At Southwell 2018, I met a very nice man who sold me a complete AFS and a Heinrich box of bits
  3. After posting my last RFI yesterday, I found myself back at the modeling desk mid morning today. A few weeks ago I received a part built Nitto Hornisse kit from @SafetyDad. Many thanks again, Padraic. This is it as designed by Kow Yokoyama . the 'Father' of Maschinen Kreiger. It carries an armoured fighting suit. To make more of a profit Nitto took the basic mould and changed it to make the Hummel (A sort of Drone) and the (Manned) Fledermaus versions. This was apparently done without the permission of the designer and caused a bit of a ruckus over there. In
  4. Here's a scratchbuild that I started in early September. Thanks to being furloughed again, it is now finished & ready for the rivet counters. The idea was for a lightweight, faster, more nimble ground attack Falke. The basic bits were a 1/24th Chevy Berretta and the booms from a 1/32nd P-38 Lightning. The spares boxes contributed parts, as did @badger and WNW lozenge decals came from @gcn. Here's a link to the build thread. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235079743-a-falke-is-born/ I took advantage of the sunshine today! Helmut showed u
  5. I think a suitable subtitle to this one would be, "Go on, Sir, You tell 'im!" This is a scratchbuild which has taxed the spares boxes, but it has been rather enjoyable. The idea is that after the battle is over, there needs to be a period of tidying up. So, a vehicle of some sort, a trailer for the recovered scrap/salvage, and, in this case, a means of finding said salvage. Hence, a drone to overfly the scene and spot the goodies. I was pressured by persons anonymous to put this lot into a small diorama. So without further adoodoo's here we go. First off, a bird
  6. This one was a quick simple build from the spares box. If you're going to build a mechanical device, a vehicle for instance, you'll need prototypes/development 'mules' to iron out the bugs and refine the design. The kreiger universe has Armoured fighting suits (AFS). What came before them? How were they developed? Enter this thing, The Ritter (German for Knight). The basic shell was a Boeing Sea Knight Helicopter, first built many years ago, The rest of it pretty much built itself. Scale is 1/20th. Helmut, our techie, shows the size of it. Yes, there is a bloke insid
  7. I recently found a 'gluebomb' on the bay. It was a good price and I was curious. Battery powered, adhesive smeared and with an anti aircraft gun on the roof, what's not to like? It's an old Gunze Sangyo product and is somewhat of a Land Cruiser 'egg' model in 1/24th. But I wanted it to be 1/20th. Once disassembled, I cut off the roof. The dashboard and wheel from a 1/20th kit was added and the rear inner arches faired in. Underneath there were huge differentials to cover the gears so I made up some tubes and odd bits as a rough drivetrain.
  8. I see that it's only eight days since I posted my last RFI. Damn this furlough! This one started when I was cleaning up the garage and found an old Butane lighter. I immediately thought, hover bike. So here we are.... I made up a small diorama to put things into perspective. The main body is the old lighter, that's a Christmas tree bauble as an anti grav generator and Yamaha forks at the front. The panniers are the fuel tanks (there's a gauge on this one) and there are airbrakes on them too for steering. The rear spoiler is ex Porsche 911. Front winglets are e
  9. Some may have noticed that I am a S L O W modeler, with some of my projects taking up to a year and a half to complete. One of the downsides to this is I don't get much practice painting, which I see as my biggest weakness. So when I finish a model and it's time to paint it, its been 1.5 yrs since my last attempt. Not a great way to make incremental improvement. This has been bothering me a bit, so I decided to try and intersperse my bigger projects with quicker, built-over-a-weekend type projects that are more spontaneous and get me trying out some different paint techniques more regular
  10. And I'm back again. A new year and a new build. The intention was (note the past tense) to scratchbuild a Fledermaus, which is a rocket propelled kreiger flier. Our man in Kalamazoo aka @Tzulscha very kindly photographed his, along with a ruler (f'nar) and I was all set to go. But, I don't have the correct rocket nozzles and, well, once I'd had a look in the model graveyard, the gears started turning in my head. Never a good result for the current plan in mind. Here's a fledermaus anyway.... https://houseofqueeg.files.wordpress.com/2015/03/fm-w042.jpg In the model gr
  11. For those of you not aware there was an MA.K in Gundam contest recently run on YouTube, see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1dgHAaLWiE&list=PLoBIme3OUbYq8rST2QIGcTH9Bwp1YqkRB&index=15&t=508s The base kit I decided to start with was the Bandai 1/144th scale Gundam Gusion kit and converted it into a mobile suit from the Maschinen Krieger universe using a lot of scratch building and spare parts. I called the mobile suit - Hasslicher Fetter Junge Ausf K (Ugly fat boy)
  12. And welcome to another of my finished scratchbuilds. This one based on the upper half of a Star Wars Slave One. (The lower half became a Hover Tank). It seems that I only started this one last month. So for me that's pretty fast work. Wurger was applied to the Fw190, the Butcher bird. This one would be lunar based and piggyback to Earth orbit on a Sternail. There it would disable enemy craft and satellites and tow the remains back for salvage. Link to a Sternail picture. I built this one probably ten years ago. http://i1373.photobucket.com/albums/ag398/petergsoden/Sternail05_zps
  13. And here, at last, pictures of the beast in it's finished form. A quick resume' first though. The Star Wars Slave One ship has always looked like a Hovertank to me. I managed to get one cheap 'with parts missing' from kitsforcash. A cut'n'shut job on the lower hull gave me the basis of the tank. The spares boxes & two cheap Airfix Tiger tanks gave me the rest. The figure is Rolf. He is the tank commander. A little short for 1/48th perhaps, but he is only about 18. He was in an Aircraft kit long ago. I just wonder, how noisy would this thing be? Forget stealth!
  14. I was going to wait until I finished the VW but this keeps nagging at me and it is in progress, so.... I got this as 'parts missing' from that nice chap Ian, at Kits for cash. At rest it's always reminded me of a kreiger hover tank. What is a bloke to do? Okay, so it's not that close to a 'Nutrocker' but it's close enough for me, and the original kit is a silly price anyway. Here are the top and base. I've sawn sections out of the top to make vertical joints and I scored the front and rear to reduce the width to 95mm. This has made it slightly taller. The
  15. This kit is made by Wave and is in 1/20 scale, which makes it stand about 4-1/2" tall to the periscope on the back. Being a powered armor suit, there's a pilot that goes inside and the hatch on the top can be opened to show them (I opted not to do this). It also has limited articulation and can be posed in various ways, which is cool. I textured the entire model by painting it with Tamiya Extra Thin cement, letting it soften the plastic, and then attacking it with a stippling brush I fashioned from an old round tip brush. I added some weld beads with green stuff to all the various parts attach
  16. Here we go again. This will be yet another of my bits boxes builds. I like the idea of the Maschinen kreiger universe and I have several of the kits in the stash. I do find though, that I enjoy scratchbuilding much more than just assembling and painting a kit. To that end, I've built quite a few variants using whatever I had to hand, and this will be another of those. My apologies if some of the pictures are slightly out of focus. Or is just my eyes? Here is a link to a picture of the official kit http://www.amerang.co.uk/image/cache/data/Hasegawa/HMK03n-
  17. EDIT JUNE 2018 - To see pictures please google sternail. Any pictures of the ship in a garden are of this build. There is also a photoshopped image of the ship with clouds in the background. Yeah, thanks Photobrokit. Pete And there's more! This one I built about a year ago, I think. There are, In the Ma.k universe, Two types of Sternail. Both Space going and operated by the opposing sides. One is large & grey, The other smaller & white (usually) So far as I know, there are only a few of these around. The small white one can be had a
  18. Here's my Hasegawa 1/35th scale Melusine. First model I've actually finished to completion in something like 8 years! Cheers Richard.
  19. Hello. I would like to present to you my new project. It is series of Maschinen Krieger from Hasegawa. The model is illuminated and the battery is hidden in the base. This time it's winter scenery. So enjoy the pictures. Cheers Mike
  20. Bit of a leap from what you saw on WIP to this but Sometimes that's how it turns out. As it turned out the beast wasn't too stable (as predicted) I couldn't get the autostab to work. Ahem. I cut discs from a kit box and used a product called mod podge (I think) it's like thick white glue, Slapped it on and plunged the feet into it overnight. Some paint and model railway foliage followed. I'd put kitchen foil around the cardboard, rather like a cupcake, when I removed it I found it had dried clear and vertical in places rather like splashes. Result! I then cut plasticard discs and epo
  21. Given the interest in my completed builds I thought that maybe someone out there might want to see just how I come up with these things. This one will be a small walker built using whatever I can find amongst my redundant kits & bits boxes. No prizes for guessing the origin of any of those bits! I can tell you I started with a SMER 1/48th Swordfish that I bought years ago just for the floats. I chopped off the tail section and added a Wessex nose to the front. Engine unit goes on the back and tank bits on the side along with (I think) Buccaneer drop tank halves? The grey part
  22. Hello, Here is my first kit in the Ma.K universe. It was really fun to do !!! Hope you'll like the result:
  23. As requested, here are some more of my scratchbuilds from the maschinen kreiger universe. An earlier build of mine, sternail, can be found on here by using the search box at the top of the page. Oddly, the ma.k universe has two ships called sternail. The first here was inspired by the LUM Camel. The body was built from the caps of three deodorant cans. The cockpit is a pencil sharpener. Legs are a balsa and plasticard sandwich. The feet came out of old hardrives. Everything else is from bits boxes. Next up, this one was inspired by the Heinkel UHU (ish) Again the cockpit i
  24. Hello This is my first modelling post here "Snowman" is my latest completed model. This is a powered armour (S.A.F.S.) from Sci-Fi fiction "Maschinen Krieger" created by Japanese artist Mr.Kow Yokoyama. Snowman is one of the famous S.A.F.S. schemes in the story. The model was painted by Vallejo and MIG Ammo acrylic color, plus some MIG enamel wash and weathering products. The pilot I was trying to paint a African skin tone... not sure can you guys find it out? The last image I put my other figure aside to show the contrast of the skin color.
  25. I've been asked to put these on here, So I hope you like them! I've taken basic models/objects and adapted them to fit the maschinen kreiger universe. The first one I finished last week. It was a 1/30th scale walker from Aoshima, brought back from Japan. It looked a bit 'Fairyland' to me so it was told to tighten up & be more butch. I did take prepaint pictures so you could see where bits came from. Dunno where they went! So, It's Aoshima + Schwimwagen & tank bits with spares box add ons. The Panzerschrek & their carriers are homebuilt. Now in the background
