  1. After giving myself serious eye-strain on the Aliens mini figures,I went to the other extreme with a re-paint of my nearly 30 year old T2 figure as he was looking a bit battered and worn,a pretty large figure coming in at about 35cm. Looks like hes back........................................again Cheers.
  2. Hi folks, I've been messing around not doing much recently - we had our club compo and the requisite rush to get something finished, then the model railway show, and then the PS4 came out. Plus Micky talked me into doing the couch to 5K running thing (4.9K as of today ) which has been taking up some of my spare time. Anyway... I popped into my local model shop the other day for no particular reason and came out with a couple of vinyl figure kits (half price!). I bought a Halcyon Judge Anderson off eBay earlier this year and was hoping to try something a little less precious as my first vin
  3. Needed a "mojo" restorer,had tried a revell 1/48th FW190D9,half completed,then a Tamiya 1/48th Stug,nearly finished,but couldnt really whip up any enthusiasm ,my fault,not the models,then this popped up on e-bay. The seller has started it,and filled it with resin,and had an add-on pack with the pulse rifle,barrel and white metal facehugger,had even primed it,so all ready to paint. Knocked up a quick simple base And started slapping some paint on her. Mojo restored
  4. Another repaint of an old model,Given the subject matter I decided to go "full gore" on the scratch built base,body parts will be present,but not in the right order! This is a big figure,about 18 ins,came with a packet of pins to stick in his head,which was weirdly theraputic. "No supper until you tidy your room,The floors a disgrace"
  5. Cellar Dwellers for the last 15 years,These kits date back to the early 90's The Prince and the bat just got a clean up and some washes,additional detail work and varnish,the wolf was a complete e-paint. Worst boyband..................Ever
  6. Another repaint from under the stairs,Horizons fairly large and chunky ED 209,Was never very happy with my initial paint job,and actually found it boring at the time,However I have learnt to be patient and not rush these things,So nearly 28 years later its back on display.:) U Used some spares from the decal bank to add a bit of detail,dont look to closely its mainly in German! The OCP logo is a fridge magnet off E-Bay Drama shot Cheers Andy
  7. This is a re-paint of my first ever vinyl kit,Bought it from Thunderbooks in Blackpool in 88,I can remember how weird it seemed,a model that needed a hairdryer,superglue and no enamel paints! I was well out of my comfort zone! The original pose was rather static so I have repositioned the right arm and leg to try to give Murphy a more dynamic pose,The base is a home made job. I enjoyed re-visiting this Vintage figure. And remember "Stay out of trouble"
  8. Heres my pretty ancient Horizon T2 kit,gave him a bit of a clean up due to few years of dust and neglect.
  9. Having recently re-watched Batman on Blu ray,and throughly enjoyed it I scored a couple of Far-east Billiken copies of the Joker and Batman figures,Went together resonably well and all prepped for painting. Joker comes with two heads. Started blocking out some of the colours,Batman fairly straightforwards,Joker less so. Cheers Andy
  10. My final 1-1 scale Halcyon Vinyl kit(actually thats not strictly true,I do have the alien queen foetus knocking about somewhere ) The Dog buster from Alien 3 . Handsome little fella isnt it the base is a homemade job with extra added fleshy bits. Right,Back to Batman and the Joker ! Cheers Andy
  11. Apologies to Mikemc,But it would appear Alien Queen Chestbursters are like Buses,You wait ages for one,then two turn up Another 2 decade + stash lurker finally completed. I am contemplating "bloodying" her up,but not sure as I quiet like how she looks at the moment
  12. Halcyon Vinyl kits from the early 90's May not be SFW Worst Modelling day..............................................Ever Its a boy!
  13. After my Frankenstein based detour I'm back on familiar ground Dating from 1991 this is an original Halcyon Face-hugger undergoing a restoration due to less than stellar paint job(by me) and general "sagginess" and wear and tear. The original box art(Which I no longer have) Dissection Crude,but effective wire armature added to tail and fingers. Trying to run away! Bits of the chestburster in the background.
  14. "How can I describe my emotions at this catastrophe, or how delineate the wretch whom with such infinite pains and care I had endeavored to form? His limbs were in proportion, and I had selected his features as beautiful. Beautiful! Great God! His yellow skin scarcely covered the work of muscles and arteries beneath; his hair was of a lustrous black, and flowing; his teeth of a pearly whiteness; but these luxuriance's only formed a more horrid contrast with his watery eyes, that seemed almost of the same colour as the dun-white sockets in which they were set, his shrivelled complexion and stra
  15. On the first of January 1818 "Frankenstein,or the modern Prometheus" was published ,and with it,one could argue the birth of the science fiction era,In 1983 acclaimed American illustrator Bernie Wrightson,with Marvel comics, released the novel with his beautiful illustrations ,a hardback version was released in 1983 and 2008. In 1995 Sideshow released a vinyl model of the creature and its creator,a kit that these days commands an extremely high price(usually about £500.00)and even at the time was prohibitively expensive ,So imagine my surprise when in Morecambe market (of all
  16. Not the prettiest Ship in the Galaxy,but one of the most iconic,The Halcyon vinyl and injected plastic Nostromo. Been a bit of a chore,but really happy to have it in the collection. Cheers Andy
  17. Hi chaps. I've decided it's high time I started a sci-fi build. I'm not going to reveal straight away what it is yet, but I'm going to give you lot a chance to guess what it is. It's rather iconic, I think, and harks from the 80's. I'll give you a clue..... Hope I haven't made it too easy. Feel free to have as many guesses as you like. Matt
  18. So for something different for a change, I looked for a figure of everyone's favourite Great Old one, Cthulhu! Reaper Miniatures came up trumps with a 6" tall vinyl figure: The main body is cast in solid cream-coloured vinyl and there are 8 pieces in all: body, tail, 2 x arms, 2 x wing wings, head and base. The detail is superb and the mould lines are minimal. The tail and arms fit together very well - the arm sockets are keyed so they only fit in the correct orientation and the tail has a well formed plug that fits into the socket at the rear (ooerr!). I had to use only a very small amo
  19. 1374 This is my very first WIP post I've ever attempted so please forgive any and all errors. Also I can't seem to get Flickr working here so I've opened a photobucket account as the instructions are very clear (they need to be for me!) in the FAQ section. I've had this vinyl figure sitting in its box for ages but as I've just seen Ep VII and I don't have any of the nice shiny new Bandai kits I thought I give him a go. Now I've never worked with vinyl before but I jumped straight in and after a bath (for him) I started trimming the excess away. Using heat (a hair dryer) really softens
  20. Weighted Road Wheels for BRDM-2 (Trumpeter) 1:35 ET Models ER35-051 This set of four resin tyres and four hubs are designed as direct replacements for the vinyl tyres I the kit, which although looking of, they do take paint that well and have been known to perish over time. The set comes in the standard carded thick poly sleeve with the tyres and hubs held in separate poly bags. The resin appears to be quite hard so they should sag over time. Each tyre has its moulding block positioned on the realistically flattened area that gives the visual effect of there being some weight to th
