Airfix 1/72 Dornier Do-17 History and Kit Review

This vid is the second in an ongoing series made with a good friend over at RTB Models. A bit of history and then discussion about the kit. We take turns choosing what to review. Vid 1 was the Airfix 1/72 Spitfire Mk1a. The second the Dornier an[...]

Bandai 1/72 A-Wing Starfighter

This is Bandai's excellent "snap time play time" as my son calls it. They do with snap fit what some companies can't do with traditional methods. They don't bake their plastic which means that it can be effected by some of the strong chemicals w[...]

Hasegawa 1/72 Macross Ve-11R Thunderseeker

Finally finished something other than figures. This is a 1/72 Hasegawa kit based on the Japanese anime series Macross. Hasegawa has been slowly increasing their line of these jets. The fit is not Tamiya but its not too bad. It goes from amazing [...]

Reaper Bones Ogres

So these two are painted to tabletop quality rather than shelf quality. The reason is these are for use in a game. Which means unlike your typical kit/figure they are going to be touched a lot. Normally I prefer doing really thin coats and spend[...]

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 any Bandai I have done. Most of the bast build was a f[...]

Reaper Miniature Undead jester

This is a 28mm Undead jester from Reaper Miniatures. I ended up basing my colour choice on the one the company did for theirs. The red and black seemed a good idea so instead of trying to muck around and come up with something new I went with it[...]

Doctor Who: Zygons 28mm

these small bundle of red hostility are from Warlord games into the Time Vortex game. I have been a fan of doctor Who since a kid and its awesome that we are seeing a growing amount of figures from the Sci-Fi show. These are 28mm or 1.1 inch so [...]

Bandai 1/12 Kylo Ren

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 they look a lot better if you pain[...]

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 decent detail though does not[...]
