  1. 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

    Hello everyone..

    Hello from Essex. Glad to be here!
  3. 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! :-)

    3D Renders

    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! Chris https://www.facebook.com/chriscardwellmodels/
  6. 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 ...
  7. 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.
  8. 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/

  10. One of my builds for the Sci-Fi group build is the Nelson-class 'Space Battleship' by Kami de Korokoro. This is one of a number of resin spaceships in their 'Original SF Mechanics' series, which consists of WWII warships reimagined as spaceships à la Leiji Matsumoto, and the only one to be based off an actual battleship. I bought this kit on a whim from Hobby Link Japan two years ago, for 2600 yen. It comes packaged in a plastic bag with the artwork/header-cum-instructions inside as well. The main hull is a single piece, with the turrets, parts of the superstructure, and winglets to be attached on. The smaller parts, which include smaller turrets, radar dishes, aerials (with a keel included?), and two tiny fighters came in smaller ziploc bags. The instructions simply consist of a parts list and exploded views. Like the real-life Nelson battleships all the main gun turrets are carried forward (and an extra one is added to the underside). It can't be seen from the photo but the bow of the ship contains a Yamato-style cannon. The kit is straightforward in the way small resin kits are, that is only straightforward after proper cleaning-up of the parts. The casting is pretty rough, the main hull will need quite a bit of smoothing-down and I will probably need to scratchbuild some replacements. The kit is actually small, smaller than a 1/72 Spitfire. I will post a picture with this comparison once I finish the kit.
  11. To those of us who grew up watching him on TV, Leiji Matsumoto's Captain Harlock is the archetypal space pirate. Part Byronic hero, part Eternal Champion, he (or at least his space pirate incarnation) starred in two TV series, two movies (one of which came out in 2013), two OVAs (besides the original manga) and is an important side character in several other works by Matsumoto. To me, his style defined what spaceships, battleships and fighters should look like in SF. I will be building the SW-190 Space Wolf, released as part of Hasegawa's Creator Works series as a tribute to this childhood hero (and also because I'm too afraid of buying and making a mess of the model of his pirate ship Arcadia). The Space Wolf was a fighter carried by the Arcadia, whose entire crew were apparently excellent pilots. I don't know if the Luftwaffe-esque SW-190 designation is canonical or something added by Hasegawa, though (i) Matsumoto was known for his World War II stories (cf. The Cockpit) and (ii) one of Harlock's ancestors was in the Luftwaffe and (iii) the Arcadia in one of its incarnations uses an authentic Revi C12D gunsight for targeting its guns may have something to do with it. The kit comes moulded in four sprues, along with a clear sprue and black and white sprues which make up a fine skull-and-crossbones stand to pose the fighter. Parts are provided for a pilot figure, whose features could represent one of many characters besides Harlock himself. The kit has a lot of nice surface detail though I don't have any source material with me to see how canonical it is. The skull-and-crossbones stand, with the skull part thoughtfully moulded in white plastic. The kit suggests three colour schemes. The first (RLM 82 over 76?) is from the 1982 movie. The painting instructions literally recommend RLM 82 as the top colour. The second is from the original 1977 anime, and the third 'low-visibility' scheme is pure fiction. I would like to do it in the second scheme, but the 'off-white' is intimidating, It is worth mentioning here that the cockpit is to be painted in RLM66 and the wheel wells in RLM02. The decal sheet is really nice, with faux-Luftwaffe markings (and stencils in German!) and plenty of death's-heads. The left-over markings can come in handy for what-ifs. While not related to the build, it is worth mentioning that when drawing the original Harlock manga, Matsumoto and his assistants used plastic models as references. Amusingly, Harlock's first mate is a dedicated modeller, who is willing to forgo his duties as first mate to build models.

    Battlestar Wreck

    Hi guys, this was a bit of an experiment ive been wanting to do for some time. Below is a screen grab from the Battlestar Galactica Mini Series, it shows a Battlestar similar to the Galactica hit and adrift, and it gave me an idea. I thought to myself, hmmmmm ...so, rather than posting all the photos, here is the end product, and a link to the folder with all the WIP photos for your viewing pleasure. http://s181.photobucket.com/user/chris1984_99_99/library/Battlestar%20Titanic?sort=3&page=4 I still need to get a base made for it, but I think im finished with the kit itself. Its my first time doing an explosion this way, so any words of advice or how to improve would greatly be appreciated! Thanks! Enjoy!
  14. Hello all, I am not actually too sure if this counts as a "Sci-fi" build? It's got a laser-cannon of some kind on the top now so I am going to classify it as such. This is also my first commissioned build, a teacher at the school I work at found out that I like "bashing plastic together" as he puts it. He is a massive Warhammer fan and runs the Warhammer club at the school. I dont know why, but he is trying to get me to join in, and he asked me to paint up one of his building. Here is what I started with... After a few hours of filling and sanding, then priming and painting. I decided that I didn't like the first attempt so I repainted the whole thing and was handed back the below. The teacher loved it alot, dunno if he intends to give me some more or not... Sorry for the dodgy pictures, these where taken on my phone. This is the first building I have ever done, so I realise it is not perfect (is any model in reality?) but I do want to improve my skills. I will take on all criticism (constructive) and see where it leads me. I am planning on making something like this again, probably not soon tho. Thank you for looking. Kind Regards, Dazz

    Galactica's Return to Earth

    Asked my daughter to play around with Photoshop and one of the pictures I took of my recently finished Galactica. Original photo Photoshop version Cheers, Warren
  16. Hi, We are in the process of putting together a kickstarter for a collectible kit and/or miniature for tabletop gaming. We are here to get you guys involved and give us some useful feedback on these our first pass ideas at a Mecha/Vehicle Our initial aim is to produce a 3D printed kit, modular build, with a range of accessories, weapons, add-ons etc to make your choice as customizable as possible. At this stage we haven't decided on 15mm or 28mm, but we would like to go as large as we could to carry across some serious detailing in the print Attached are our first passes; very loose ideas, and we would appreciate opinions and feedback from you guys as to which you find the most appealing.. which aren't and why ? Are we swimming against the tide by not going for the standard Mechwarrior blocky design or are you guys crying out for something a bit more steampunk, outlandish and exotic?
  17. Well after over a year in the making, im calling this one finially done (well until I decide to tinker with her again!) Ive build about half a dozen other kits since starting this one, but at long last I got around to finishing her! (and just im time for a model show tomorrow, which may or may not have been the kick up the backside I needed to finish her!!) Anyway enough of this chit chat! Here she blows..
  18. I built a MkII Viper a few months ago and a friend ended up buying it, so I couldnt do without one myself as I think they are among the best looking fighters in Science Fiction, so ive ended up building another. I recently completed the MkVII version in under a day to set myself a challange to see if I could do it, this time however, that was not possible, there is simply too much work involved in the MkII. So instead its taken a leisurely 2 days to complete minus weathering which I shall do later today! More pics to follow!
  19. Been wanting this kit for years and like everything on the grail list is way overpriced. ( then again what price art eh) This kit is easily in my top 5. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/221294182862?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 Now if anybody would like to kindly donate to the fund. I would show appreciation by squealing like a gurlie. From an anime Film called Venus wars. One of my favourites from the late 80's.
