Scout Trooper and Speeder Bike project: Bandai 1/12

Well, it’s been a minute since I’ve posted. So I thought why not show what I’ve been working on. Bandai 1/12 Scout Trooper and Speeder bike with scratch-built fountain (it works!). Still have quite a bit to do but at least we can now see the finish line on this project. Any questions feel free to ask and as always thanks for looking!

  1. Looks real, Travis. You put a lot of effort there. Fantastic job!
    I admire yor work (though I’m not into figures and dioramas). I’m also a big fan of Yoda.
    All the best!

  2. Not my area of modelling interest but can’t help admire the quality of this Star Wars diorama you present here. I do wonder how did you achieve the falling water effect? Thumbs up!

  3. A terrific build! Very imaginative.

  4. Great representation of nature + weathering of the models! Very much liked!

  5. The Bandai Star Wars kits are awesome, although I don’t have the speeder bike yet. The old MPC version was (and still is) quite good. (Their best SW kit IMHO.) Can’t wait to try the Bandai though. (Any idea how do they scale up to one another? I’ve seen the MPC listed as 1:11.)

    The base you’ve set these on is stunning. Looks like a combo of Woodland Scenics and real wood, moss and vegetation. Cracking job Travis!

  6. Thank you sir appreciate it! The Bandai kit comes with both Scout Trooper and Speeder Bike and is listed as 1:12 scale. You are correct some woodland scenic foliage was used along with some real vegetation and sticks. Most of the foliage is from a place called Dioramapresepe.com out of Italy they have great stuff but unsure what their status is with all that is going on with this COVID-19 mess. The mud is a combo of VMS Smart Mud and Ammo by Mig Mud Splashes line

  7. Super sweet dio. Excellent craftsmanship.
