Finished Bandai 1/144 Millennium Falcon

Sometimes you have those builds that get out of hand, this was one of those. This particular build started out as a “paint mule” for my upcoming build of Bandai’s 72nd scale Falcon that came out last fall. Things quickly […]

AMT/ERTL USS Enterprise E, Nemesis movie Version, 1/1400 Scale.

This is the Enterprise E from the movie Star Trek Nemesis, it has some modifications of the original model, in addition to more intense colors and a much more complicated Aztec pattern, it is painted with acrylic testors and sealed […]

The Falke – Redux

Here is a model I did a little while back. It is Falke model by Hasegawa: As usual with practically all my builds, I like to give models my own personal touch. The Falke is definately no exemption here. I […]

Bandai 1/72 Y-Wing

This is the 1/72 Y-Wing from Bandai. It is very good kit but so far the first one i wouldn’t give to a kid. There is loads of piping it is finicky and fragile. This has taken the longest of […]

This was a fun build. Bandai have kept trying new ways to do capes. Ren’s is a soft flexible material that holds really good surface detail. I sprayed it black. Bandai kits are coloured right out of the box but […]

FFG Imperial Assault AT-ST

As this piece is from a miniature game the build is quite rudimentary. A handful of parts snap together tightly and don’t require glue. Overall its not too bad especially if space is a big limitation for you. It has […]

Moebius Cylon Centurion 1/6 scale

Started this one as part of a buddy build with 4 other guys, all building the same kit (either Moebius or Revell issue). Straight away, I wanted to change the OOB pose because I’ve always thought it looks weird! Took […]
