  1. BB-8 Resistance pilot Poe Dameron's loyal astromech droid Bandai 1/12 scale I started this year with a BB-8 and I finished this year with another one, albeit one as a commission instead of my personal collection! Like my previous one, this is a full paint job: the white is a custom off-white mix I've used in the past for X-wings, the orange is a mix of a couple Vallejo paints, and the metallic bits are Alclad Airframe Aluminum (ALC-119). All of the weathering was done with Mig enamels and oils. The base is a 3.5" wood cube that I spray painted satin black and I made a vinyl stencil for the "logo." Interestingly enough, I got the idea for the "logo" while I was standing in line at the craft store to buy the wood cube. My girls were looking at knick knacks they had on the shelves in the queue and my younger one found a neat little Star Wars coffee mug with BB-8 on it. She showed it to me and when I picked it up to look at it, it had this little logo on the one side (with a "BB" in the larger circle). I thought it would look cool on the base so I made a stencil of it when I got home! As always, comments and criticism is always appreciated.
  2. Revell's 130mm Level 3 kit of the Imperial Star Destroyer, with a slightly off-the-wall paint job. (Wikipedia: Dazzle Camouflage) Humbrol gloss white from can, then Lifecolor black airbrushed over a lot of fiddly masking, finished with light grey wash to bring out panel lines and surface shapes a bit.
  3. I've had Bandai's 3P0 sitting in the stash for about a year now, but for some reason I've never been able to get the motivation to get started on him. I thought it was time he got built, but I wanted to do something different, so he's not going to be 3P0, but a different protocol droid instead. The first thing to do was strip the plating off the kit parts, which was a wrench to do as Bandai had made a beautiful job of it. They'd also made it pretty robust, as it was less than easy to remove, but I got it all off eventually. The assembly has now been done so this will be more of a painting wip than a build one The only paint app so far has been a bit of silver and clear orange behind the eyes... ... and the mid section, which was painted dark grey, then weathered with a few Citadel washes. The moulded wires were picked out in various shades, and a few extra ones were added with wire stripped from and old USB cable. As for the droid I'm doing, my initial thought was to do TC-4, who was a protocol droid in the prequels. The only reason I'd thought of him was that I liked his colouring I'm now veering in a different direction, which is to do an unofficial (i.e. made up) droid, which will be in a dilapidated state (hence the split wires on the mid section). The current plan is to base him (or maybe her; there are female protocols) in a dark aluminium/steel metallic, then add layers of oxidation/corrosion and general grime. I'm keeping it fairly open for now, and I'll just see how it develops as I get paint on. And, no, I don't know what I'll be calling him (her) yet. I'm open to suggestions. Andy
  4. BTL-A4 Y-wing Bandai 1/144 scale Bandai "Vehicle Model" Y-wing (1/144 scale); completed in Tamiya & Vallejo acrylics, Mr Color lacquers, and Mig Productions enamels. This is was a fun little weekend project! I started it late Sunday morning and finished it up Monday morning. I painted it as Dex Tiree's Gold 2 who was famously shot down by Darth Vader during the Battle of Yavin (I had no intention to copy you, Andy!). Truth be told, it could probably stand to have a little more weathering, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, especially for something I started on Sunday around lunchtime and finished up Monday morning. I still can't get over the detail on this kit; for something that fits in the palm of my hand, it's absurd! Comments and criticism is welcomed as always!
  5. Hi chaps. Don't know if it's been posted on here, but DeAgostini are releasing a new partworks... https://www.deagostini.com/uk/collections/build-your-own-R2-D2/ Build your own 1:2 scale r2-d2. Looks rather nice, with a few unique features. Matt
  6. After th Pg Zaku, i started my first 1/72 scale model kit. Bandai X wing. This is the box and parts some parts are realy tiny first i started the assembly all parts. After that process i will be start the priming. but i realized when i assembly the all parts than i cant paint or prime everything Thats why i seperate some parts again...
  7. The X-Wing's finally finished with today's last minute addition of all new mini Nigel, the mouse droid. Bandai's X-Wing is a great kit, easily as good as all their other releases. The custom finish was down to wanting to do something different to a red squadron fighter (ironic that I painted it red then). The open panels were also done to give it a bit of individuality. The base was my first snow scene, and a bit of a learning curve, using different materials. If I'm honest neither the X-Wing or the base are my best work, and are a bit scruffy in places. I was quite pleased with the astromech though, which recreated U9-C4, the R5 droid I depicted with Bandai's 1/12 kit. (wip here) I'll post some shots of the X-Wing on it's own first, as it's easier to see the details when it's off the base And all together on the base (if you get bored you can always play 'Where's Nigel') Thanks for looking Andy
  8. I got some primer on the Gonk earlier today and, while I was waiting for that to dry, I thought I'd have a look at getting some of this together All these Badai box scale releases are pretty simple, with very low parts count (and very low prices too), but the detail they've managed to squeeze into the box is pretty spectacular. I posted some sprue shots a while ago, which can be seen here. You could easily just snap this together in 10 minutes and have a great looking model, but I've decided to refine some of the details a bit, starting with the two main guns. the two cannon barrels come moulded to the lower cockpit section. They're not hollow so you'd need to drill them out (if you're bothered about that kind of thing). I hate drilling out barrels, as I always get them off centre, so I made more work for myself than was strictly necessary by rebuilding them from brass tube Before After The front section is 0.6mm Albion Alloys micro tube into .8mm then 1mm, which then goes into some thicker stuff from Trumpeter. I just cut two slots into the bulkhead section, and stuck them in. With that done, the top half of the cockpit was added. I'll be leaving the canopy off for painting The other bits I've replaced are the two U-shaped bars at the back of the main fuselage. They come moulded as part of the side panels, and look a little chunky, so I cut them off and replaced them with copper wire After that the fuselage fell together. It's essentially just a top and bottom section with 4 sidewall pieces that clip into place but, despite the simplicity, it makes a very intricate layered structure The level of detail on these parts really is amazing. For scale reference the wire I added at the back is 0.5mm thick The cockpit is a very snug push-fit onto the fuselage, but I'll leave it separate for painting Andy
  9. This is B0-R15, a rather old and broken down protocol droid who inhabits the lower levels of Coruscant. He claims (to anyone who'll listen to his ramblings) that he used to work for an influential senator before the Empire came to power. He now ekes out a living by providing translation services to various underworld gangs. At one time he was fluent in over six million forms of communication. Unfortunately, due to age and lack of maintenance, he can now only manage seven, and those not very well. This has, rather understandably, hampered his employment opportunities, especially after one unfortunate incident when he mistranslated the phrase 'honoured guest' as 'Gamorrean faced Bantha fodder', during a negotiation between rival crime lords. He still though dreams of one day returning to his former life, serving the great and good of Coruscant society. The build can be found here Thanks for looking Andy
  10. I got this for review and just couldn't resist putting it together in between doing other things, and it did put up a little bit more of a fight than I expected, with a few ripples in the body that needed filling, some confusion in the direction the lower body faces, and some bubbles in the corrugated leg parts. They were easy enough to fix, and I've been priming it on & off for a few days, testing, fettling and so forth in between sessions, finishing off with a coat of black. This morning I squirted some LifeColor panzer grey all over it, and sealed that in with some AK Gauzy before applying a couple of coats of AK Worn Effects Chipping Fluid (ooer!). Then I overcoated that with some more LifeColor, but this time some Anthrazitzgrau, which is slightly lighter than the base shade. I've been harassing it with a stiff paintbrush for a wee while now, and decided to take a few pics to see how it looks, as you get a bit "blind" to it after a while. It's the first time I've used this technique, so I was a little anxious about screwing it up I'm quite pleased with how it has come out so far, but there's still a long way to go with it. I'm basing mine off the look of the Star Wars originals, although every one seems to differ slightly from the last pic. I've since applied a filter for Panzer Grey (an old Mig one) to blend the two shades, and add a bit of tonal variation, but I have a lot more to do to weather it. I've also got to do the detail painting of the feet, the greeblie insert in the front etc., and add a general dust coat to finish. It's about the most beaten up model I've tried to date, so I'll be hoping that Andy gets a wriggle on with his painting, so I can slavishly copy him

  12. So I've had this one for a few months, sitting on the pile. Finally got stuck into it and had a ton of fun in the process. Felt quite liberating in a way, knowing I had a bit more freedom with this than say, a real world vehicle Anyway, enough of that. I did do a few pics of WIP, but nothing extensive. I'll add those to the end of this post. I wish I could take some better images, considering it looks better in person. Other things to mention. A few decals were left off, in part because I had already coloured some of the panels they covered differently, rendering them moot. Others would've proven too much of a pain. I tried adding decals to the cockpit side panels, hoping my Micro Sol would conform them. Did not go according to plan, so I ended up having to scrape it off. Didn't get it all off, so when I went to paint the detail, some of it was blurred. Was disappointed with that, especially since if I had straight painted it, it would've looked much better. But, live and learn I guess. Anyway, on with the show And here's some additional images, including some WIP Thanks for looking Gaz
  13. Hi. Yeah i know, another Bandai. Build number 6 so far, i think. Nearly caught up! Finished about a month ago. Yet it again its to grey in the most part. Need to leave things lighter to take the weathering into account! Will i build another Y? Hmmm … the pipe work was a job and a half. Probably get a plumber in to do that next time. Managed to find a white background for me photos. Still missing a fill light though. Thanks for looking. Cheers
  14. I've always wanted to do one of these in 1/72 scale, so when I spotted that the current Revell easy build kits are currently quite widely available for half price (£30) I grabbed the chance. The kit really does just snap together and could easily be assembled to fly-away condition in an afternoon, although I fettled a few poorly fitting bits and then got out the glue to keep things properly in place. As provided, it comes with some superficial pre-painting of detail, which is very sparce, but in all honesty quite effective enough for the main target market of this kit. I added a fair amount of detail painting, then a heavy wash over the whole thing. That's all though - other than one spare (ex-Sea King) instrument decal applied in the cockpit, everything else you see is what you get in the kit. The builder is offered a few options representing the Falcon as it appears in the different films. For the most part these are undercarriage changes , the different shaped dish antenna and some different hatch panels. There are, of course, far better representations available in various scales, but whilst it is definitely not Finemolds standard, for sheer size alone this one provides a lot of fun and makes for an easy build.

  15. I dug out my long abandoned MPC AT-AT build. I started on this back in 2006. It got packed away and has finally seen the light of day again. I resumed work to get it to this state. The plan is to do the famous tow cable scene from the movie. Compared to today's Bandai kits and even the Revell kits, this model leaves a lot to be desired. The fit is less than stellar. I started applying paint and washes to each part of the kit separately. I felt it was easier to finish each minor assembly separately rather than the complete model. More to come...
  16. Hi all, I'm a long time reader but this is the first time I've uploaded any of my models. I'm a big fan of all the Star Wars canon and I was so taken with Andy Moore's U9-C4 that I decided to try my best to match his amazing standard and have a go at the same droid myself. I followed his build diligently and tried to use it as a tutorial to get used to these sic-fi kits (I usually make 1/700 scale ships...). The Bandai kit was so enjoyable that I decided to have a go at another of the droids from D-Squad. The green one, M5-BZ, was a bit more work, as I had to make his head from scratch. It was a bit tough as it's a really unusual shape...it's round at the base but changes to hexagonal at the top. It took many attempts with paper before I got the shape right. I managed to use the eyes and the base of the head from the R2 head, but the painting was a real challenge too...it took a lot of masking to get it look right. Anyway, all credit to Andy for the original idea. Thanks for looking and I hope you like my little droids!
  17. TIE Fighter & Vader's TIE Fighter 1:110 & 1:121 Revell The TIE Fighter is the standard Imperial single-seater attack ship, and attrition rates during the three films it starred in must have been horrific! Named after the bow-tie it resembled, a cranked "special" was also designed as the personal mount of arch baddie, Lord Vader. They have menacing designs in darker colours than Rebel ships, which emphasises their alignment with the Dark Side of the Force, as does the eerie scream of their engines, which as per most Sci-Fi films, can still be heard in the vacuum of space. The Kits These are both in the Level 3 range, and as such are more of a traditional kit than any of the Level 1 and 2 snap-together offerings as they require glue and paint, and are quite small thanks to the scale, which doesn't seem at all consistent throughout the five kits released so far for no apparent reason. That gripe aside, They arrive in a small red themed box with Kylo Ren (the new baddie) menacing us with a light sabre at the top, with a new style of colour printed instructions on slightly better paper stock. Darth vader's TIE Fighter Arriving on three sprues of Imperial blue/grey styrene with a clear sprue for the windscreen, you get a diminutive but fairly well sculpted Dark Lord sat in the same seat as the standard TIE Fighter, with the same angled tray and side walls, but a different control panel, which we see Vader fiddling with during the flight down the trench in Ep.IV. The top hatch is glued in place on the upper hull with a clear insert, and in the lower half the leading-edge inserts, windscreen and cockpit tub are installed before closing up the hull. A windscreen frame decal is included, and then it's time to make up the wings, which are moulded as one piece with a separate detail insert that hides some ejector-pin marks on the vertical inner side. A scrap diagram shows the correct orientation of the detail, as you wouldn't want them installed upside down! As with the other kits, the decal and painting call-outs are made during construction in Revell colour codes, and don't forget to have some masking tape on hand for those "solar panels" on the wings. TIE Fighter The standard TIE is presented in 1:110, which makes for a bigger kit than Vader's TIE, which is a shame for those wishing to create a small scale Death Star trench diorama. It is supplied on four sprues of Imperial grey/blue styrene with a clear sprue for the canopy and a decal for the framing in dark grey. The detail is better on this larger kit, and the pilot benefits as a result. His cockpit builds up the same way as Vader's, and the upper hull houses the hinging hatch with clear insert, while the lower hull accepts the cockpit tub and windscreen part. Closing the hull up should be fairly easy, as only the seams around the spherical crew compartment are properly visible, and they're quite short. The wings are each one large part with a central boss added to the outside to complete the detail. They side over the fuselage pegs and then it's just a case of assembling the two-part stand to keep her off the desk, with a small hole in the bottom of the crew compartment keeping it in place. Conclusion Again we have the scale discrepancy reducing the overall appeal to the avid modeller, but individually they are quite nice kits if you do your research and make sure you know what you are getting. All these Level 3 kits are ideally suited to the casual or younger modeller, and with a little care can build into nice models. Revell model kits are available from all good toy and model retailers.

  18. Bandai's latest addition to their Star Wars range. For my money this is the best one they've done so far, with the fit being perfect, and the breakdown of parts being completely logical. This one isn't lit but it would be a pretty simple job to do, as Bandai have conveniently moulded the engine inserts in clear plastic. The included Turbolaser turret is the icing on the cake. OK, it's not to scale with the A-Wing, but that would have been unfeasible anyway, but it makes a great display piece in it's own right. Everything's painted predominantly with a mix of Gunze and Tamiya and weathered with AMMO and AK enamels and oil paints. Oh, and of course there's International Man of Mystery, Mr Flatty, seen here with his somewhat low rent sidekick Nigel the Mouse Droid Thanks for looking Andy
  19. Just finished this other day. Lovely ole canvas for weathering. An enjoyable learning process. Bit grey but hey, she is what she is … the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy Thanks for looking. Cheers
  20. Hi all! So this is a project I started at Christmas on a group build on another forums. I didn't get very far because I was finishing off my degree in my spare time around work, and didn't even get time to chuck together a Bandai kit! But, that's all done now and after a month of settling down I've got back to the bench! So this is what I've been up to over the last day or two: The cockpit was undercoated in Tamiya rubber black, then painted with German grey, details picked out with True Metal Aluminium oil, then washed with black water based oil paint before decaling and flat coating with Tamiya's excellent flat coat. There was some dry brushing with light greys and silver paint. He was just painted with Vallejo black paint and lightly dry brushed. I know Phil Flory on his videos didn't paint these panels, but i thought I would with Tamiya rubber black, and then dry brushed with a few shades of lighter grey before Tamiya flat coat. I was pleased with how they've come out, i was hoping for that dusty kind of look. The build: It all comes together so quickly that I've not got many in progress shots!! It just falls together. I did glue the two halves of the main body together as it was quite tight and a couple of the locating plugs got lost in the process. She's undercoated in Tamiya's XF-82 Ocean Grey. I am intending to go over this in a blue grey from Vallejo, but actually this colour isn't that far off so maybe I won't... time will tell! I elected to paint all the framing for the black panels separately rather than fit them and mask the panels, but it probably took just as long or longer to do it this way! I've fitted the clear top part to the model and painted the non-glass bit separately. When the build is finished I'll fit the above bit instead and put windows in with Micro Krystal Klear. So that's it for the minute. Coming together nicely. I might finish it next weekend as I've got gigs all week, and then onto the Lancaster which is not too far off the painted stage. Thanks all Val
  21. Sad news today that Kenny Baker, the actor behind R2 D2 has died. he was 83. Here's a link to the article in today's Guardian on line; https://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/aug/13/kenny-baker-r2-d2-dies-star-wars
  22. Speeder Bike & Scout Trooper Bandai 1/12 I won't be starting this one just yet but I'll post some sprue shots for anyone interested in seeing what's in the box We'll proceed in alphabetical order starting, amazingly enough, with sprue 'A' which contains all the biker scout's white bits There's some nice mouldings on here including the front section of the helmet Chest armour Top of the feet And bottom of the feet The tread detail on the sole is excellent. The moulded text in the middle reads 'INTER'. No idea whether this is accurate to the costume or something Bandai added The white sprue's also got the tinted visor. There's a bit of VERY faint rippling in it but, under normal viewing, you can't see it All the parts have got the usual (for Bandai) plug & socket connections On to sprue 'B1'. The black bits Some nice creasing on the fabric sections but they could probably do with a bit of texture The Biker Scout's pistol (by far my favorite Star Wars blaster) And some disembodied fingers to fire it Which leads us onto sprue 'B2' which has the alternative hands Two pairs - one for the standing pose and one for the riding pose. They look OK if a bit mannequin like. They really could have used a few wrinkles here and there Next up's 'B3' which is an alternative base if you want to display the trooper separately (all the bases from these Bandai kits can be interlocked should you want to display them together) And now, rather oddly, we jump to 'B5'. I've no idea what happened to 'B4' but nothing seems to be missing from the kits so maybe Bandai think the number 4 is unlucky. This is the main display base for the speeder The rather naff looking 'tree stump' acts as a side support for the speeder (with the addition of a clear connector) to give the impression that it's hovering Sprue 'C' - bike bits Two pairs of thruster flaps, one for up, one for down. I haven't fully checked the instructions but it looks like you can't pose them in any position between fully open and fully closed which is a shame although I'm sure they could be modified to do so Control rods The seat's a bit too smooth so, again, a bit of texturing will help The bed roll's nice, with separate ends to give better detail in the folds and, yet again, a bit of texture wouldn't go amiss Sprue 'D' - The brown bits (a bit too brown to my eye, if you were thinking of leaving it unpainted) Good sharp control detail Rear fairing Forward stabilizer fins These are chamfered to give a very thin leading edge Every single Bandai Star Wars kit I've so far built has had split sprue gates. I don't know why this happens and I've not had any damaged parts as a result but it does leave some parts less protected in the box Sprue 'E' - The grey bits (which are more of a gunmetal on the real one) Repulsorlift engine detail Front forks The foot pedals have some very fine ribbing detail More engine detail Final Sprue - The vinyl joints for the trooper As per usual, two sets of markings - stickers and decals And finally, the regular Bandai instructions complete with the bizarre jumps from the main sequence to the black strip at the top and back again Overall, a great kit easily up to the level of Bandai's previous releases I'll start the build as soon as I get a chance (too many other things on right now) Andy
  23. New Revell Master Series Star Wars Kits Are In Stock Now RV15091 This is the Revell 1:48th scale X-Wing Fighter from Star Wars. It is part of the Master Series range which is based on the famous Fine Molds kit, the most accurate kit ever built of this subject. Kit Features include: Molded in white and clear plastic Scale Figures and Droids Landing Gear in up or down positions Display Stand Length - 271mm, Width - 222mm, Height - 141mm Description: This is the most important rebel alliance fighter and one of the most powerful single-seat space ships ever produced. The T-65 X-wing Fighter owes its name to the double wings one above the other that form an X in combat in order to increase the firing range of the pilot. In addition to four high-energy laser cannon the X-wing Fighter has proton torpedoes, deflector shields, hyper drive and a navigation droid. Luke Skywalker prefers this type of fighter. It was used by the young Jedi to destroy the first Death Star in the Battle of Yavin. The X-wing Fighter quickly proved to be one of the most effective military aircraft in the galaxy. The unusual wing design of the T-65 is frequently regarded as the success formula of the space ship. The pair of twin wings remains closed during normal flights under the speed of light. In combat and on entry into the atmosphere of a planet, they can be extended. On the wing tips are high-energy laser cannon that can be fired singly, simultaneously, in pairs or in other combinations. Construction kit for the advanced modeller. RV15092 This is the Revell 1:48th scale TIE Fighter from Star Wars. It is part of the Master Series range which is based on the famous Fine Molds kit, the most accurate kit ever built of this subject. Kit Features include: Molded in white and clear plastic Pilot and Imperial Figures Full Cockpit Interior Display Stand Length - 133mm, Width - 130mm, Height - 157mm Description: Darth Vader used this prototype as the basis for the terrifyingly effective TIE interceptor in the Battle of Yavin. Unlike all other TIE fighters this prototype has a deflector shield generator and a simple hyperdrive. Vader's TIE Advanced is armed with heavy twin blaster cannon on fixed mounts but has no life support systems. The TIE Advanced is characterised by a hull made of duralloy steel, an extended after deck and unique solar cell wings. The Tie Advanced quickly became one of Darth Vader's favourite ships. Like all the TIE ships the prototype has a drive system consisting of twin ion engines. Its solar ionization reactor is reputed to be much more powerful than that of the standard TIE fighters. The TIE Advanced has proved itself in battle, as it is capable of withstanding many direct hits. In addition the pilots' chances of survival were considerably enhanced by the incorporation of a hyperdrive system, which enables the ship to escape from hopeless battle situations.

The Millennium Falcon may look old and broken down, but continual modifications have made it into something special. The crew has for years consisted of the reckless pilot and smuggler become hero of the rebel alliance, Han Solo, and his co-pilot and technician, the trusty Wookiee Chewbacca. A long time ago Solo won the ship from Lando Calrissian in a game of sabacc.
