Science fiction, fantasy and mecha model building.

Light this candle – Models 1/72 Mercury Redstone – Freedom 7

I picked this up and started building as a distraction and what I thought would be a simple build. The kit is superb. The escape tower needs a little forethought and patience but the photoetch was a nightmare to get off the sprue and bend. Felt[...]

FAZZ Ver Ka 1/100

Well it’s been a minute since my last post. It took about 3 kits to get back into the groove. Finally back at it and pleased with how this build came out. Tried some new weathering products and some tried and true products and techniques on this[...]

Hasbro ‘Treadspeeder’ to Hover Vehicle Toy Transformation

Bandai 1/72 X-wing

Well I wanted to do this fun little project a while ago, I actually started this model in early 2020, but I got demotivated so I didn't finish last year, nevertheless, a few weeks ago I found the box, and decided to finally finish it, it looks p[...]

1/144 ms-06s zaku ii

The first time I built Gundam models from Bandai. The kit is easy to assemble, and everything fits well. The decals are dry transfers. They are thick, and they don't conform to the surface. I found some wet transfer replacement decal on eBay.[...]
