  1. Hi folks, According to Hobby Search, Bandai are re-releasing some of the EX kits early next year, including the White Base, Musai and Hildolfr: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/list/747/0/1?state=1 The EX kits are a sort of semi-limited-run thing, they tend to be more expensive for their size than other Bandai models and you often have to use glue for some of the construction. I.e. like a normal kit Good crisp detail. I built their Salamis and it was pretty good: Quite tempted to pre-order the Musai to go with it, maybe the Hildolfr after seeing Brian's Zaku Tank Cheers, Will
  2. All done! My first completed model in several years, and the first I've ever weathered up! Took nearly three months of restocking paints and whatnot, but I think it turned out quite nicely Did my best to match the griminess of the movie model Gaz.
  3. 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?
  4. Hi folks, I finished off the Salamis yesterday and took some pictures today - here they are: (click for bigger, especially if you like dust!) I'm pretty pleased with how the Balls (sort of cut-price Gundam robots, apparently) came out - they look nice and chunky considering they're about 4.5mm across I wasn't really intending to light this, but realised that with some drilling and filing I could get a 5mm LED into the engine bell, and a 1.8mm square one into the bridge. Running the wires wasn't too hard - I drilled down from the bridge and back from the engine, and then diagonally up from the hole where the stand plugs in until all the bores met. Some more filing and a bit of stiff beading wire helped feed the stranded cable through. Pleasingly, the battery (a CR2032 coin cell) just fits into the base of the stand, so the whole thing is self contained. I made the battery holder from some bits of metal, but ran out of space for a switch so you have to pop the battery out to turn it off I thought this was a fun little kit, a bit more work than I expected but worth it. It's not very big compared to the box it comes in though: You also get a larger ship (the Magellan-class battleship) in the box, so I'll have to get on to that in the not too distant future. Comments + criticism very welcome, and thanks for looking! Cheers, Will
