  1. Need to finish off the base and do some more weathering before I can call it done.
  2. I had an unexpected day and a half off earlier in the year and managed to produce this whilst sat in my hotel room.
  3. Hi, I am currently working on a starwars diorama. I have two storm troopers from Bandai made up and in need of a little weathering but not much. I would like it to eventually look like the rogue one promo shots with the troopers wading through a tropical ocean. I have made up a base from MDF, covered in polyfiller and then sprinkled with sand and small pieces of gravel. It looks like this at the moment: My next steps are to paint the base, as I would like it a lot lighter than what it is now, and then pour epoxy, water clear resin after I have built up the sides with styrene to simulate the water. I have never used resin and I would be gutted if this went bad, so what should I worry about. Do I need to put a clear coat on the painted sand base? Will the acrylic paint or even the sand lift because of the Resin? I know I have to pour the Resin in stages and have researched a lot, but have realised I know nothing of how it will react with the other media. All ideas and advise welcome as always. Thanks for looking. Chris.
  4. Here you can watch an amazing concept trailer based on Ralph McQuarrie's early illustrations of the Star Wars universe. Just brilliant imho!
  5. Yet another master series Falcon from me. I have lost count of how many of these i have built. Nearly straight from the box but with 3d printed radar dish. Weathering is being a bit washed out in the photos. weathering not 100% movie accurate but this is my Falcon so im not too bothered. Still a great kit.
  6. Kit: Bandai Tie Fighter Scale: 1/72 Paints: Tamyia xf-82 Ocean Grey, xf-54 Dark Sea Grey, xf-63 German Grey, xf-85 Rubber Black, Vallejo 71120 USAF Medium Grey, other Vallejo colours for hand painting, water based grey oil paints for weathering, Tamiya XF-86 Flat Clear finishing coat. Extras: None, not even glue! Build link: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235005473-172-bandai-tie-fighter/ So, another Bandai Tie fighter. The kit? Well, as good as any Bandai Star Wars Kit. Glue not required!! Simply undercoated with xf-82, top coat 71120, base is xf-54, the wing panel things(!!) are rubber black and dry brushed with various Tamiya greys. Quite a lot of time went into the cockpit which is now invisible!! But it's in there!! Here are the pics: And here he is chasing that pesky x-wing around! That's about it, hope you like them! There will be more... Many thanks, Val
  7. You know how clumsy the imperial soldiers are. Their shooting ability should be a good indicator. So their camouflage ability should not be any different. Tired of that long lasting resistance in dirty, rainy forests of Endor, this AT-ST driver looks when his shift will end. Well, this is the story I made later. After seeing 2-3 AT-ST shared in BM (excellent one by Andy, the camo one), I said, I'd never come close to such works with my skills. So I wanted to make something different. And assembling a Bandai SW kit is not very satisfactory (actually it is but it is very easy, me feeling like assembling a Kinder Surprise kit). So to make things harder, I just decided to paint that black box at hipbone. And others part fallowed. Than I said why not to try few weathering. And I overdid it. I wish I knew where to stop Anyway, I continued with some leaves from J's work which I used for the first time and I'm pretty happy with them. As you know Bandai plastic tends to crack with some paints etc. and it cracked in few spots after the washes, which became battle scars I liked the colors I used in legs etc. I hate the wash in some points. And as a last touch of creativity(!?) after hair spray, I used carob powder (something I bought for cooking desserts, one of my other hobbies). It made the job and you know what, it smells good too So here are some pictures:
  8. Hi All, Just coming back to modelling after a 10 year break and I'm posting a few of the things I had just finished before my absence from the fold. This is a customisation I did of the Kotobukiya 1/12 scale clone trooper figure. It's basically a re-paint with scratch-built custom backpack, holster and binos. Initially I sprayed the whole figure silver then masked out damaged areas using maskol. Over that I airbrushed the various camo colours using maskol each time to mask the patterns. Finally I removed all the masking fluid then added the weathering and various staining etc. I have a few WIP pics as well if anyone is interested, but I wasn't sure about posting them to "Ready For Inspection"! Chris For reference this is the original figure:

  10. Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) has been posting some great pictures on Twitter of behind-the-scenes on some of the Star Wars films. https://twitter.com/TheWookieeRoars/media anthony
  11. Hi All, Just thought I would create a thread for my first ever model in progress. It's a 1989 MPC Darth Vader TIE Fighter (the one that needs loads of sanding and filling ) Apologies for the slightly poor quality pictures, they were taken on my phone. Regardless, I hope you all enjoy the updates. Steps completed over the last few days. Primed Yesterday I primed all the main parts of the fuselage Lighting test I also tested my first ever LED lighting circuit. Obviously, the fuselage is not stuck together here I just wanted to get a feel for what it might look like. Cheers, Rob
