  1. This 120mm figure by Verlinden will be my second entry. There are a few more parts to this one but it looks to be a fairly simple parts breakdown of figure and equipment. It has been a long time since I painted a large scale figure so hopefully this should be a good refresher before I go on to tackle something else. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr
  2. This Elan13 figure of an RAF Pilot smoking a pipe and accompanied by his spaniel will be my first entry in the group build. It has four parts in total and two of those are the head and the pipe, so it should not take long to assemble (famous last words) and will be a good lead in to the larger second figure I have planned. As you can see, I also have a perfect life model for the dog - if I can get Molly to sit still for long enough. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr
  3. Whilst searching the internet for a Kitty Hawk Blackhawk and not getting very far, i came across various models for different figures on the ol' eBay and upon looking at the description and the product picture, i thought looked really cool! The detail of the 1/35 Figures were very intricate and detailed, best of all was the price....£9.32 including post and packaging! wow i bought 2 and waited.......and waited.....and waited....checked the details page on ebay....Sending to the UK from none other than Shaghai......by boat...jeezo, long wait Then finally one day a battered pack
  4. Well now! I had this: ..and this...: and - with a little imagination - ended up with this: I present to you - Feline Female! I hope you like it (couldn't call her - you know what - but Feline Female - or FF for short - should be OK?) Cheers Hans J
  5. I cant believe it but its done!! The project I started nearly 4 and a half years ago is finished in my display cabinet and it feels great The concept was based on an image I had seen in my Spacebase 2000 book when I was a kid, I'd started out wanting to copy it but the project slowly morphed into something more original but with the same feel. Its basically as if our intrepid intergalactic explorer has stumbled across some intresting flora that turned out to be carnivorous fauna! Cue a speedy jet pack exit to escape its slimy tentacles. The base and body were sculpted
  6. HI all, it's been pretty slow on the modelling front for me this Christmas. My Airfix QF 17-pounder is patiently waiting for a suitable diorama base to be sourced - it also awaits the gun crew from the kit to be assembled and painted. However, one additional figure I need for the diorama is a civilian - specifically, a Dutch teenager as portrayed in the reference photo shown in the WIP thread (here). I can't find any suitable figures to fit the bill. So, I have decided to make my own using a technique I have used before for garden railway figures, albeit in a larger scale (1:22.5). It involves
  7. Hello All, This is my first post (except comments) and is mainly to see how to work this doohickey called the interweb. Right then, I shall introduce the Heller Homer Simpson I made a year or so ago, If you have made this kit or one of the series you will know it's a 'fit's where it touches' kind off kit, but can be made into a nice figure with a little care and patience, I used a mix of Tamiya and Humbrol acrylics applied with Air and 'Airy sticks finished with Humbrol Satin from a rattle can. Thanks for looking. Andy.
  8. Evening all Another "cellar dweller" gets a 15 year makeover,This the Phantom vinyl Bladerunner kit,Which,to be honest I was never really keen on,the proportions looked wrong,the pose is static and the heads to small,to stop the vinyl "popping out" I secured the arms with small nuts and bolts,re positioned the hands and built up the hair with milliput to make the head seem a bit bigger,and made a jacket from layers of thin plastic card. Its not brilliant,but it looks better than it did. And I really needed a break from Aliens
  9. Hey! Didn't really know where to post this topic :/ I'm currently making an AH-64D Apache Longbow (Revell's kit) in 1:48 scale. I'm gonna be bored over the summer, so I was probably gonna have a crack at making an Middle Eastern diorama focused around the Apache. It will be just before a mission, so there will be people loading ordnance, maybe a quick bit of maintenance and nothing much else really. I was looking at Hussein El Kaissy's 1/32 one on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJjPWS18rTQ . It looks really nice. So, my question is; Where can I get these diorama accessories in 1/48? -
  10. Magister Figure Set 1:72 Special Hobby Special Hobby have released these figures under the CMK label to accompany their new Magister kit which we reviewed here.The set consist of two standing pilots and a kneeling ground crew figure. There is one standing pilot with his helmet and parachute on, one lounging on the airframe with his helmet off and no parachute. The ground crew member is franticly fixing something that pilots probably broke . The figures are very well sculpted with separate heads for the guys not wearing helmets. These figures are excellent and just what is needed to
  11. 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
  12. This is my first real 'stand-alone' figure! I've made figures before, but always in a setting with a vehicle or plane. This is the first figure I've been modeling which is to be on a base by itself. I'm not finished yet, but I thought I'd share it with you. It's a bit shiny now due to drybrushing, but it'll get a coat of matt varnish when done. Cheers Hans J
  13. This project has been ongoing for about three years and is only visited between other builds for a bit of something different. That said, I am determined to complete it this year so that I can then make a start on the French drummer that I have. It is only the second 120mm figure that I have painted, so my flesh tones need a lot of improvement. The figure also needs a matt finish applied to the uniform and the ancillary parts adding. I have sprayed the top of the base black to hopefully help with shadows, I don't know if this is the usual way but that is the way I have gone. The lower part ha
  14. HI ALL, im helping a friend with his first model aircraft. hes a big tom cruise fan so i got him a 1/48th tomcat for his birthday n we are looking for some advice. Firstly decals, does anyone know of any aftermarket sets for the TOP GUN movie version, if so can you let me know who does them so i can go shopping. secondly i remember once, brousing threw a traders stock at a show .(i was looking for parts for a corsair at the time) that someone does a set of US NAVY pilot figures doing a high five. i think it was actually called " the need for speed" tho i cant be sure as its a while ago n
  15. Hi I have a rather nice 1/24th figure that looked fine until I put some primer on it (Halfords White plastic primer). There are an incredible number of very fine pinhole size-holes in the figure. Any suggestions on how to fill these? thanks
