  1. As some of you might know, we're big fans of the stuff that GreenStrawberry is producing for all our Star Wars, Star Trek, Babylon 5, BSG and all those other shows/films that we know and love. They're great people too, which endears them to us even more, but Brexit seems to have hit them a little hard when it comes to sending shipments to the UK from their base in Czechia (Czech Republic). We're pleased to announce that in order to stay in contact with their valued customers, they've set up a chat room for you to discuss things with them, which you can find here: https://greenstrawberry.cz/content/80-chat-room You'll have to create a new login even if you're an existing customer, as it's a separate system from their ordering software. If you've got any issues, questions or suggestions, they'll be only too happy to help, and you can also meet up with other folks that have been unable to find enough to reach the minimum shipping amount, agree to join forces and get it done - at your own risk of course. Going back to Brexit briefly (must we? ), please remember that it's a huge change for overseas companies in the way that they do business with us British, so cut them some slack when it comes to shipping and the constraints that they're under now. Also, don't forget that English is not their first language (although they'd pretty good at it), so remember to talk/write to them in your best Queen's English , as I can't understand you lot half the time, and I'm born & bred here! As a reminder, here's the note from their website. If you want to get some sets direct, and don't have a large enough order, team up with a buddy, possibly using their chat section as a hub to find a new friend, and spend spend spend! Anyone wanting to do that on here should reply to this thread if they're looking for a friend to share shipping with. We all know each other here, but the usual caveats apply Finally, we've got a few new sets coming from them soon, so watch out for the reviews when they pop up
  2. Hello I'm new to this forum and I would like to post pictures from my build of Revell Star Trek U.S.S. Voyager 1:670. But first the introduction: My name is Lukas and I'm from Czech Republic {please excuse my English skill} . Decided to post here, in a UK forum, because I noticed that the community of sci-fi builders is much bigger here and in my domestic forums and also the overall attitude of the people here seems more welcoming where in CZ forums I was often surprised how toxic and offensive people can be. I'm building plastic models for a few years now, starting with planes then ships {historic and modern non-millitary} but last year i tried my first sci-fi builds {bandai SW} and found out that so far this is the area of plastic scale models which excited me most as i'm like huge sci-fi nerd Now to the build: By building this spaceship i'm basically fulfilling my child dream. As Star trek: Voyager was my favorite TV show and i always wanted to build the Voyager and have it for show on shelf. With this build I will be aiming for a fully lit version with heavy modifications as some of the details of this kit are not good i will try to recreate them as best as my skills allow me This also my first attempt to light the model, for that purpose I bought a lighting kit from Ebay. I will try to upload pictures of my progress regularly. Any suggestions and the tips along with some healthy critique will be most welcomed. Hope you like my work Lukas
  3. Resin Figures (1350015) 1:350 GreenStrawberry While these little folks aren’t strictly Sci-Fi, I suspect that they were intended to be placed in Star Trek kits that have visible bays or arboretums, at least initially. That doesn’t stop you from using them anywhere that their scale would permit, even going as far as a Gulliver’s Travels diorama! The set arrives in a small box, which is why it got side-tracked for a while (sorry about that!), and inside is a plastic bag that has been heat-sealed into four quadrants, each one containing a casting block of figures. There are no instructions because each figure is a single part, and as they aren’t intended for any specific role, you can paint them any colour you like, within reason. The four casting blocks each have little ears at the ends to help protect the figures, of which there four on each block. There are two blocks of male figures, all in different positions, and two blocks of female figures in the same poses as the males, so if we’re thinking Star Trek, you have plenty of variety to play with. The poses are as follows: Walking, possibly carrying or pushing something Standing, hands on hips Kneeling on one knee, both hands out Walking, arms swinging Standing, one arm out straight Standing, possibly leaning against something Standing, hands near pockets Standing, hands folded in front Each figure is attached to the block across the shoulder blades, and there are additional wisps of resin spreading out to ease casting, but all this should be very easy to cut off the back, possibly with the aid of some Blutak to hold the figure down. At this scale the limbs are very slender, but my example had made it here in one piece, but care will need to be taken by the time you begin handling them for painting and eventual installation. Conclusion Very well-detailed and crisply cast tiny people in a range of poses that will add some human scale to any 1:350 model whether it’s Sci-Fi or otherwise. Very highly recommended.

  5. Hello everyone... I present my latest build from the Sci-fi/Movie-TV Group Build. It is Red Two flown by Wedge Antilles at the Battle’s of Yavin and Endor. This is the ancient MPC kit which i think is 1/48 scale. Its close to that as i used a 1/48 cockpit from my spares and it seems to fit. I did a few things to it. I made a canopy post for open display as seen in some photo’s. It is removable so the canopy can be posed in a much lower state. Like i said the Cockpit is from my spares as the kits used dial gauges molded in to the dash. Its far from perfect but its better than stock. I also added the two launch tubes for the secondary torpedo’s used in the trench run of the 1st death star. They weren't there on the kit, just flat panels. A link to the build log in the Sci-fi group build. Questions, comments, and or thoughts ? Dennis
  6. Star Wars Hangar Crew & Equipment Vo.IV (72004 & 07219-1/72) 1:72 Greenstrawberry You've probably heard of Star Wars just like you've also probably heard of Bandai, so if you put those two together you've probably also heard of GreenStrawberry and if you haven't you're about to, so prepare your wallet for a shock when you see all the lovely sets that are available. GS as I call them for my ease produce all sorts of accessories and detail upgrades for Sci-Fi subjects in general and Star Wars is one that features heavily on their menu. This latest batch of sets are great for the diorama builder that wants to put their ships into a human scale on the ground, and we reviewed the first issue here a while back, which is now augmented by these new sets. Each set arrives in a small black-themed card box with CGI rendered sticker on the front showing the contents. Inside the resin is ziplok bagged and has a small instruction sheet where appropriate. Hangar Crew Vol.IV (72004) Three figures are included in this set, each of them attached by the soles of their boots to their casting blocks and their arms standing up by their sides, all surrounded by wafer-thin supports to aid the ingress of resin and egress of bubbles. There are also some wisps of resin adhering to the parts where the moulds have been split, and these can be removed with your fingertip or a sharp blade. These folks are all pilots dashing to their ships, presumably during a squadron scramble, and are in action poses as befits the occasion. Two are running, one of which is adjusting his helmet as he goes, and the third figure is clambering up his boarding ladder with the usual butt-out pose adopted to balance while climbing aboard. Only the helmet-adjuster has his arms moulded in place, so there is some room for adaptation of their arms to suit your needs, which might be useful for the ladder climbing chap. Hangar Equipment Vo.IV (07219-1/72) Like the previous sets, this one includes a set of five boxes of various types and sizes and you will have seen a couple of those in previous sets if you've been paying attention. There are two rounded-edge boxes with horizontal lines engraved in their sides, a flat stackable box with an irregular outline, a box with fluted protective vanes all over it, and finally a pack of four cylinders on a palette. Very useful for background clutter that accumulates on even the most fastidiously clean hangar decks and gives a diorama that lived-in look. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  7. Hello everybody ... Well I decided i couldn't wait to start my Bandai AT-ST Walker. Being that im coming from an Aircraft modeling base i have loads of extras in 1/48 scale. My intentions are to build this as a Resistance captured/operated walker. Ive chosen to build it as a Temperate/Junglie L.R.R.P. Unit. This will have extra weapons possibly uprated armor, stowage, and a nice Camouflage scheme over everything. Something like the scheme #’s 7, 9, & 10 from @Gekko_1‘s walker thread. Im hoping Gekko you dont mind me linking to this ? I take inspiration from several other builds of Star Wars models not just walker’s. I have thank @Gekko_1, @AndyRM101, @monsterpartyhat, & @Pete in Lincs all your sci-fi works have inspired me to do this. Dennis
  8. Hi all and great to look back at 2018 and the bits of plastic I stuck together, whether for Group Builds here or elsewhere, or just for fun. All are 1/72 unless noted. As I'm slowly getting into airbrushing, all of these are brush painted, except for any white finishes which are a rattle can with brush finish on top. First finish was a Revell Albatross in January for the Flying Boat GB here.

Keep on sticking for 2019 and yes, will fire up the airbrush (and build some newer kits) All the best, Dermot
  9. Hi to all,My main hobby is mount tanks 1/35. On each kit there are several leftover pieces. One day I imagined mount something with those pieces and this is the result. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mS_XDiluZs4
  10. Hello from Essex. Glad to be here!
  11. Hi folks. New member, blown away by the builds on here! Here's my most recent build. A Fallout inspired take on TT Combat's 1/56 (28mm wargames scale) Dinogas Filling Station. A mixed media (mdf & card details) kit that was a doddle to put together. Base coated in acrylics (UMP primer, Tamiya, Vallejo Model Colours) shot through the UMP-Apex airbrush and weathered with acrylics (AK, Tamiya, Vallejo) and oils (winsor & newton & sansodor odorless thinners). Very happy how it came out and given me the confidence to tackle a 3 foot square gaming table for the upcoming Fallout table top RPG! I've got a step by step build log over on my blog with loads of wip shots if you're interested: http://www.richbuilds.com/articles/build-review-tt-combats-dinogas-filling-station-28mm-mdf-wargames-terrain/. Always happy to answer any questions you might have. Please bear in mind it's not 'finished' (windows need dusting, etc.) till I've done the in-place weathering once the boards done. In the meantime, happy building! :-)

  13. Hi Guys, I havnt been out in the shed building many models lately... the winter has seen to that! So, instead I have started dabbling with modelling of a different sort, 3D models. The Meshes are downloaded for free online and rendered by myself in Lightwave and finished off in Photoshop. So far I have done a few dozen, so rather than linking them all here, I will show you a few and give a link to my FB page where I upload them. Hope you enjoy!

  14. I hit the [backspace] key accidentally when I almost complete the post so I lost all my input in a second So I'll link the images first and then I'll add the description next day Description below: This is an old resin kit has been in my collection over 20 years. The kit is sculpted by famous sculptor Takeya Takayui. Who is a talent of monster and character design. This kit actually was a conversion of a mecha from 80s animation "Aura Battler". The kit is around 80mm high and casted in grey color resin. The sculptor actually turned this mecha into more organic from and lifeful instead of a battle mecha. You can compare the look between the animation and the kit itself. I sprayed Vallejo black primer, and then white primer for highlighting. Before painting the details i used Vallejo wash to define the recess area and shading. To be continued ...
  15. The massive 22" Long Space: 1999 Eagle Transporter from MPC is now in stock and available to order! This impressive model kit is the latest addition to MPC's range of Space: 1999 models, complementing their popular Eagle 1 Transporter, Eagle Transporter with Laboratory Module and Moonbase Alpha models.
  16. Hey guys, well its been a while since I last did a physical model (been getting a bit carried away with the 3D renders lately!) So today I got stuck into the Revell USS Enterprise for a client. I don't normally rush things, but once I started this kit today I couldn't stop, so I persevered and managed to get this done in a single day! Its been a while since my last 1 day build! (well, I started after lunch!) I'm putting it in the WIP Thread as its not TOTALLY finished as I will give it a quick gloss coat tomorrow once the decals have totally dried! Hope you like! I'll include a link to my page where there are more pics including some more WIP and "finished" pics. https://www.facebook.com/chriscardwellmodels/
