  1. "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.
  2. Ok, this probably won't be your typical Work In Progress thread. This started out as me trying out some pre-shading techniques which I've never really used before. I usually build 1/32 aircraft but thought the Falcon would be a great test subject for pre-shading and for me to see how it works (or not). The kit is the Force Awakens release of the Falcon. For AM, I've got Tyridium's lighting kit and the Green Strawberry PE. I started with the main hull sections. I used Tamiya NATO Black for the pre-shading on the bare plastic. Over
  3. Just finished this Bandai box scale Millennium Falcon from Empire Strikes Back for the Film, Fiction and Speculative GB here. Short wee build thread for this very wee kit is here but to recap: Kit: Bandai 1/350 Millennium Falcon 015 Build: Out of the box! Paints: Black Acrylic primer, Revell Aqua colours with airbrush. Klear, Flory Models wash Extras: None Not my best (tried the pre-shading thingy but not great) and the wash didn't work out underneath - don't think the Klear coat had fully cured. But really loved the details in such a tiny kit and can't
  4. So even though the workbench here at HQ is backing up with Group Builds, I've decided to throw my hat in with Bandai's mighty Millennium Falcon - someone had to, right??!!! How excited to see the postie finally delivering this one.....I really can't wait to get stuck in. Bandai Millennium Falcon_1 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Wait...……..wha??????? Bandai Millennium Falcon_2 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Why of course, it's the mighty small Bandai Millennium Falcon - I'm still saving the cents and raiding the children's future col
  5. Millennium Falcon (06777) 1:164 Revell Build & Play The Millennium Falcon seems to have been a main stay of most of the Star Wards films to date. The Kit As part of Revell's licencing of Star Wars from Disney they are releasing a whole host of kits for modellers of all ages. This is aimed at the cross over between toys and kits in that its pre-painted and ready to go with some easy click together construction. The unit also has a sound & light modules built in complete with batteries so its ready to go. Co
  6. Just started out on another model from the Bandai's Resistance Vehicle Set which includes two 1/144 T-70 X-Wings along with this 1/350 Falcon from the Last Jedi. Few parts but great detail. I'm really impressed by the pipes which run from the hull into the maintenance pits. The parts were all very clean except for the radar dish, which had a prominent mold line running down the center. I laid down a base coat of Badger Stynylrez Black Primer followed by random squiggles of Vallejo Model Air 71.119 White Gray to give some modulation to the hull color.
  7. Hi Everyone, This one I've worked at on and off for months (with huge gaps!). I've overdone the weathering (particularly the exhausts), which meant I parked it for a while. I'm happier with the end result now though, even though it's not perfect! Good fun though. And for those not familiar with the size, it's pretty small:
  8. Buying something from Amazon I needed something to take me up to the magic twenty squids and free postage, so I had put this little fellow in my "save for later" basket some time ago for just such a day. I usually top up with Vallejo paints but this time I needed a fiver so this little chap for six squids was just the job. Quick little throwaway bit of fun... But when I opened it. Well it isn't a bad little model. So I started thinking about "doing something" with it. Anyhoo, more on the MF model and what I decided to "do" with it later, I decided I wanted something to display it o
  9. Hi Folks, I started another Bandai Star Wars Vehicle Model a few weeks ago. I built the model during lunchtimes at work, so no WIP photos of the build I'm afraid. It went together like a dream. The kit is designed to be snap fit, so I didn't need to use glue, but I did anyway, just as I felt it helped fill any tiny gaps between the parts - even though I doubt there would be anyway, the fit is so good. Started painting by airbrushing a Vallejo Model Air USAAF Light Gray (spelling is correct according to the bottle!), and I used multiple layers of citadel Nuln Oil for
  10. Have seen one of these on offer for sale 2nd hand. Not mint in box or anything but is unbuilt and complete. Price is reasonable I think... I know it's not really that accurate (inside or out) and not even in the same league as anything larger scale by Bandai or Fine Molds.....but since those are in a galaxy far far away from my budget right now, is it worth a purchase or should I pass on it? Welcome your thoughts.. Cheers, Dermot
  11. Hi everyone, My first post here and I just wanted to post my favourite build from last year (and it took pretty much all of last year to do!). This is the 1/144 Bandai Millennium Falcon that I have modified to be (my favourite) version, the one from Empire Strikes Back. Mostly an out of the box build, it uses a lot of 3D printed parts (the radar dish, cockpit interior and exterior, maintenance pits, sidewalls on the mandibles), some photoetch (the rear circular grills) and is lit (although you can't really see this in the photos). The engines have a blue flickering glow, the headli
  12. I know...I know, a Star Wars 'Build and Play' kit. While I save some modelling funds for Bandai's lovely Millennium Falcon in 1/144, thought I would have some fun with this one which I got on the very cheap in Lidl some months back. Sure, it's not the most accurate kit and most of the details are simplified for kids but the general shape is ok and hope it will look a little better with some improvements.

  13. Saw one of these, between a bunch of other Revell Star Wars kits at my local Hobbycraft store, so think i was meant to buy it. :-) Finished build - took less than a couple of hours; Pre shading on (tamiya xf-69); Light layers of tamiya xf-19 sprayed On, building up the coverage bit by bit to endure the pre shade shows through.Then added some white to the grey and randomly sprayed a few panels (free hand) added more white and repeated; Red panels painted in and inspection port
  14. Stellar Envoy (AKA Millennium Falcon) I've had Bandai's little box scale Falcon sitting about in a base coat for a while, and since I was waiting for some filler to dry on the Gigant, I decided to get some more work done on it. I wasn't originally planning to do a wip for it, so I don't have any construction pics, but there's not really much to these vehicle model kits, and this is built OOB anyway. I have taken some photos of the painting steps though, so I thought I might as well post them. As the title implies, this is being done as the Stellar Envoy which,
  15. Hi Thanks to our dedicated and most loyal club photographer at IPMS Farnborough, here are the pictures of my completed DeAgostini Millennium Falcon (20 editions of which belong to him I do need to add!) - Built from 100 editions of various sized parts as a studio replica of the 3 footer Falcon used in ESB and ROTJ. Mine had its own paint job and face-lift as I was not particularly impressed with the basic toy look of the parts from the kit supplied parts. This is BIG, heavy, and has already been exiled to the garage by my Fiancée ("get that bloody great big
  16. Hi guys I've been a member for a while but this is my first post here,....My name is John & I'm from Carrickfergus (10 miles from Belfast) You might get to notice that I tend to build 1 craft......in different scales.....different versions...... ....the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars I've built various MPC kits (the one from '78),....the most recent I spent quite a long time on & sold it to a collector about 95% completed I've got 2 FineMolds 1/72 & 1 of the 1/144 I'm in the middle of modding the big Hasbro toy Falcon (works out to be 1/48) & two of these fantastic Ban
  17. Hello BM's. Now for me, something completely different. My wonderful modelling supporting Wife bought me a Millennium Falcon in 1/241 scale for Christmas and I've had great fun completing this over the last few days. I'm normally a 1/72 WW2/Cold War aircraft modeller so some different techniques and approaches were used to create the effect I wanted: Tamiya Acrylics used, XF-20 and lots of XF:2 to get the colour Painted the different panels using the starter set acrylics that came with it I only used the kit decals on the gun turret view port For a
  18. Dear forum members, I have done a repaint of the big 28" Hasbro Millennium Falcon and would like to show it to you. So far I was hesitating to buy expensive additional parts from Randy Cooper. Maybe I will try to get them later as this is a really nice model, much cheaper than the Falcon from DeAgostini and for me nice enough. I hope you like it!
  19. We've got six new Revell Star Wars spaceship starter kits for you! With half a dozen of the most iconic ships and fighter craft to be found in the highly popular and legendary movie series, such as the Millennium Falcon, X-Wing, TIE Fighter and Snowspeeder! For full details, please see our newsletter.
  20. What started out as a distraction from the large Vader figure managed to turn into a minor obsession with colour variance, scale colour theory and highly magnified stills from the DVD’s (still not got them on Blu-ray). While I do want to get both the Bandai 1:144 and the Revell 1:72 I will be laying off of the ‘Falcon for a while (it helps I can’t afford either!) C&C’s are most appreciated but please be gentle :-) Paints used were space-fighters and star-defenders sci-fi colors from mig with vallejo top coat and ultimate weathering wash dark dirt Thank you Davros aka Mechanised Dwa
  21. Hey there guys this is another Bandai Falcon I'm working on,....just taking a wee break to work on other Falcon projects,...at the minute I still have the side-walls to do.....but this is how I got to where I am: Some small thinning of pipes & greeblies: The detailed area that runs along the top of cockpit walkway looks a bit too high: Carving out the area from the inside to minimise the damage of details on the outside: Re-positioned lower in the walkway: Blast marks: Carving out the framework for the new rectangular radar: Underside blast marks:
  22. There tend to be too much blue'ish light in my kitchen this early in the day, but I suppressed the blue a little as a post effect on the images, and hopefully the photos should look ok. Edit: Hrm, nope. Too much blueish lighting here. Have to go take some new photos. This model was airbrushed with Vallejo Air colors (USAF Light Gray and Nato Black). I used Humbrol Clear for the gloss coats (psi should ideally be at 5-6 I think). The four layers of gloss coat is ofc "hidden" by the final layer of Vallejo Matte varnish (diluted 50/50 with thinner). I'll post some more images later
  23. Note: The Ready for Inspection thread can be found here. I think this one should be fairly quick to complete. The finish should end up looking great, now that I can use an airbrush. The fine molds kit comes with paint masks, something I have never used before. It didn't work well when I made my Tie fighter model, painting it with a brush over the masks, but now, I have an airbrush and I suspect that the result will be perfect. I think I only have to make sure there is enough adhesive on the masks, so that paint isn't blown in underneath the masks. Fyi, the paint masks is simply a single sti
  24. I finally finished this little guy, after languishing in the bottom of a display case for around two years.. I painted it with Vallejo silver grey over a Tamiya German grey preshade. Weathering was done using citadel and oil paint washes, oil paint streaks and oil paint shading and toning.. If that's a word?
