  1. Boba Fett's Slave 1 Finemolds 1/72 Hi everyone This is Finemolds 1/72 Slave 1, Boba Fett's customised Firespray patrol ship, built August-September 2014. I added some fibre optics to the cockpit instrument panel and backwall along with LED accent lighting and hull lights. The paint chipping was done with masking fluid applied with a sponge. Paints are a combination of Vallejo, Tamiya and Gunze. The long term plan for this is to construct a maintenance bay dio for it to sit in, hence the removed hull panels and port blaster. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to do that this yea
  2. Hi Everyone, this is something I've been working on as part of a bigger project to cover the (rather neglected) female pilots of the Star Wars OT era. Each project will have a craft and figure. For those of you that don't know, when they were made, ANH and ESB had no female pilots, but ROTJ was supposed to have them. They even shot video of three, but apparently test screenings of ROTJ with them in got negative comments about women in combat (this was 1983) so they took them out. Except one - an A-Wing pilot called Sila Kott who you can glimpse for a second before her death. But they over-dubb
  3. Time for another build, and I'm excited about this one as its a kit I've wanted for a while. I was lucky to find this actually as I had initially found a 1/20 flaptter on t'internet from abroad but that was a total no show so with the refund I managed to snap up this kit for south of £20 which I was really pumped about and THEN totally out of the blue the flaptter turned up!!! So that freebie kit will be the build after this one Kit arrived sealed in the box, opened it up and the droid and STAP are in seperate bags, I'know its 1/6 but the size still amazes me, love a b
  4. Hello. This is the ‘moving edition’ from Bandai, comes with lights etc. no super interested in that, but it was this or the fine molds one that I couldn’t find on eBay at the time. one thing I don’t like much about these Bandai kits is the soft edges on many of the panel lines, so I’m thinking out removing them. At least on the nose. anyway, I’m trying to figure out if I need to create sub assemblies for painting, since it’s difficult to dry fit these kits. Very nicely detailed, The ‘power brick’ that contains the wi
  5. Hi all. I've been stuck with Wing B. I know what I want to achieve with the exterior paint but I'm not quite sure how to do it or the result. So since the Bandai kits yard is not enough to take things lightly and push forward to see what comes out I have decided to leave it until my ideas are clarified and in the meantime undertake a much simpler kit, in all aspects. And it was this little one's turn. Very good kit from the Fine Molds brand, with good details and equally fine and negative panel lines representing this small combat ship that appeared in the film “The Phantom Me
  6. This behind-the-scenes feature on ILM building a model Razor Crest for use in The Mandalorian TV series was on last night. https://youtu.be/8YuaIwVbEZo Great to see scale models being used again in this way. The skills on display are amazing. C’mon Bandai...now it’s your turn! Cheers, Dermot
  7. It is time to show the world my finished project! A BTL Y-Wing from starwars. I chose to model the Y-wing as I like the shape of the ship, noticed that there were very few paper models done of this craft and felt it would be a good challenge! The model started with myself gathering image references from around the internet to gauge the complexity of the design, look at design ideas and how it would transition into the real world with card/paper. Top, side, front and back profiles were then placed onto planes in my 3D software which allowed me to start modelling the basi
  8. IMPERIAL TIE FIGHTER Bandai 1:72 I've had the Bandai TIE Fighter waiting in the stash since last year when Model Hobbies were discounting the Revell imports. Having recently finished a bit of a marathon build, I was looking for some light relief and this one seemed like a good idea. There are very few parts on the TIEs, so assembly is fairly rapid. The painting was pretty quick too, in fact the longest job of the build was masking off the solar panels which I'd sprayed first. Nothing particularly exciting with the main painting - just a cool grey for the base coat, follo
  9. Hi: Here you got my take on the smaller member of the AT family: the AT-PT. The model was CAD designed using Fusion360 and 3D printed with an Anycubic Photon resin 3D printer. These are all the required parts for this build. Please note all these pics show the naked model. No special post processing was required but removing the printing support trees. For comparaison purposes here we got the AT-PT body with the Imperial officer figure included in the Fine Molds 1:48th scale Tie figther kit.
  10. EL-5A Mouse Droid 1/12 3D Print I've recently bought a 3D printer (Elegoo Mars Pro), and have been slowly finding my feet with that and Fusion 360. I wanted something fairly simple as an initial print, and there's very little that's simpler than Nigel. He objected to a digital doppelganger though, so this initial print has become EL-5A who's now betrothed to Nigel in some kind of weird mouse droid arranged marriage. The print came out fairly well, although there are some things I need to tweak, both with the printing and with the original file. The upper body was done at
  11. Having bought an Anycubic Photon after Bootneck kindly pointed out they were on offer, I have been printing away for about 3 weeks. So now is the time to take the plunge and build someting that I've printed. I had been quietly watching StevenBills build of the Y-Wing using his Elegoo Mars and this got my interest up in building a Star Wars ship, the CG model was bought from CGTrader (same author as Steves Y-Wing) and away I went. A couple of weeks of printing got me here: Scalewise I thought I would revive the old 'Box scale' of the 50's, but this was go
  12. Hi to all. I just finished this beautiful kit, it is a snap kit, no glue si required. I painted with Tamiya acrylics, XF-2 and XF-53 in a 3:1 ratio with a drops of blue. I wanted to leave the upper hatch opened with a crew member looking out, so I modified a figure to change the posture from sitting to standing. This are the pictures, I hope you like it. Regards, Pablo
  13. How to Paint Imperial Galactic Fighters – Solution Book 05(A.MIG-6520) AMMO of Mig Jiménez There are a huge number of people that love the Sci-Fi movies of the Star Wars franchise, and some of the designs are amongst the most recognised spacecraft designs in the world. Of course there wouldn’t be any drama without a worthy adversary for the heroes of our story, which leads to the Galactic Empire, and later the First Order, who stepped in to fill the power vacuum after the apparent death of the evil Emperor Palpatine. Initially is was Star Destroyers and TIE Figh
  14. "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.
  15. After finally achieving a finished model in the last Bank Holiday Blitzbuild, I decided to see if I could repeat the success, so here is my entry for this weekend of holiday fun. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr
  16. Hi,here's my Bandai at-st i built about June last year. Its a snap together build,but i did glue it! I built the whole thing unpainted, except the cockpit interior,airbrushed matt black, then airbrushed matt white in places to give some shading. Gave it a Tamiya matt grey(sorry,can't remember what colour grey!) top coat. Ak pigments,engine grime,light rust pigment,sponge chipping,and burnt umber oil paint for some rust stains. The cockpit and pilots, i had a few not so sharp pictures from the web from the empire strikes back movie,to get an idea of the colour layout,b
  17. Hi all. It has been very fast to perform because they are few pieces and also their size is not large (it fits in the palm of the hand) so what you have to do with paint or effects does not make it lengthen over time. I have really enjoyed this kit and the pity is that I am afraid that Bandai is not replacing the kits that it launched at the time, since I see these kits more and more scarce and at a higher price. A shame because they are of the highest quality. Whoever wants to see the process followed with this model can do so at the following link.
  18. Hi all. This ship from the Star Wars saga first appeared in the Return of the Jedi movie. It appears very briefly, at the moment before the attack on the 2nd Death Star, spreading its wings to the combat position. It is a heavy fighter equipped with various types and powerful cannons and that was expected to have more prominence in the development of the final battle, but due to the thinness of its fuselage and wings, there were problems with the Chroma process during the post-production of the special effects and their scenes were removed. It also appears at the end of the last mo
  19. Hi all With this model I think I am going close a 12-month period in which I am going to finish 6. Something that I have never done. Although I have some models in process, I did not feel like continuing with them, so I looked at the Bandai boxes related to STAR WARS that I have in hiding and decided on this kit. What can I say about him that hasn't already been said? Gorgeous detail, gorgeous and finely detailed pieces and a perfect fit. A candy. The construction is already quite advanced and I decided to start this post because I think I will not stop
  20. I have a thread over on The RPF, but I thought I'd start one here as well. Since Bandai never came out with a 1/48 Y-Wing, I have decided to make one on my own. I'm using my 3D printer (Elegoo Mars) to print these parts. The model is from CGTrader and I'm scaling it to the appropriate size, relative to the 1/48 X-Wing. So here we go! I'm going to use this thread to document my build. So here we go! Just pulled these two parts off the printer this morning. I waaaaaay overdid the supports on the canopy because it's a very delicate part, and because I didn't want it warpi
  21. Here's one I built some years ago when i was in Saudi. I think I posted here back then but can't find it now. So it probably fell foul of the Photobucket thing. I gave it to my Son but over time it got damaged so I recently gave it a refurbishment. With some fine builds coming out of Scandinavia recently, I though it worth another showing. The figure was an ancient Revell Astronaut, the bike is totally scratchbuilt. In fact I started with some 1/24th Airfix Fw190 engine bits. TBH, it's a bit rough but was one of my early scratchbuilds and I have a soft spot for
  22. Well, after searching and searching for a suitable base I have chosen to use the support of a photo frame. If someone wants to see the process that I have followed in this model, they can do so at the following link. Andrés S.
  23. Hi all. I have started this Bandai kit, magnificent as the others I have of the brand and theme. I did not feel like continuing with the models that I have running. I do not feel like for now correcting this, removing the other or modifying what is beyond; so I have taken this kit from all the ones I have from Star Wars (which are quite a lot and more complex and numerous in pieces). The interior is exactly the same as the TIE Fighter, only the figure obviously changes because this is Darth Vader's personal fighter. As a base color I have used Tamiya Neutral
  24. Hi all, So to go with these two tiny TIE Fighters, I've decided to have a go at this one which was a Christmas present from my lovely wife Bandai_Solo_Falcon_box by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr What's in the box.. Bandai_Solo_Falcon_contents by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Compared to the Revell Easy kit.. Bandai_Solo_Falcon_size by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Started with the cockpit - primed Bandai_Solo_Falcon_Cockpit by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Started painting. Great detail on those tiny sea
  25. A couple of weeks ago I received a box of spare parts for my scratchbuilds from a fellow BM member (Thanks again, Ben) Amongst the tank bits were the parts for an old part painted Ertl X wing. I've never built one and, me being me, decided a few changes might improve it. It struck me that if these things were dogfighting in atmosphere then a good turning circle would be an idea. So why not use spoilers? same as the Snowspeeder. While I was at it, a different low viz (ish) paint scheme might be good too. And, markings, well, The D day aniversary is coming up shortly! So, onto t
