Advanced Tie Fighter X 1

I finally finished a kit! Even though I visit iModeler nearly every day, I haven’t posted anything in quite a while having started a new job this school year that has kept me very busy. But, bit by bit, I kept at this one and present my Bandai 1[...]

London Gunbus (Post-Apocalypse Time War)

This concept project uses as its base kit Revell's 1/24 scale London Routemaster. It's had a bit of surgery, to accept the various clock/watch parts, and I've added numerous other details. The pilot figure is ex Vintage Fighter Series, also 1/[...]

Bandai 1/48 AT-ST

Hi all, Since Bandai brought out their superb Star Wars kits, I have had the bug to build some of my favourite subjects. This was one of my first Bandai kits and I am very happy with the result. I wanted to capture the 'David and Goliath' feel [...]
