iModeler Sci-fi

Science fiction, fantasy and mecha model building.

3 – Bandai 1/60 Mobile Police Alphonse Special

This was the 3rd kit I've built and my first Gunpla kit, was fun, I put it together standard and thought the white and black was a bit boring, so I gave it a South African overhaul, I made it into a Johannesburg Metro Police (JMPD) theme. I star[...]

1:35 scale Hitachi Construction Mech

This was built from a Hasegawa excavator kit and parts from a few Gundam robots and numerous scratch built elements.

Sky Bike

This is a model I kit-bashed about 90% out of Tamiya bike parts and 10% scratch built. The design was inspired by a short film, called 'Leviathan', that I saw on Youtube some years back.

AIP 1/350 Thunderbird 2

I got stupidly excited when these reissues were announced and knew I had to get some. This took me all the way back to Tuesday Evenings at 6:00PM on Grampian TV. The only time I was allowed to have dinner in the living room as my Mum and I sat d[...]

Red Lightening Anti-Gravity Bike

Yes, it s another scifi bike. Not much to write, just that, I used a Tamiya 1/12 race bike.

Bandai 1/144 Messer “Holding the Line”

Fighting in the swamp!!! We’ve got an LED, some resin and glass “bugles” for necklaces for the brass casings (sheer luck, they are actually a perfect fit for the barrels!) As always thanks for looking and would love to hear what you think!!

Mon/Jet Bike

This is something I have been working on, for the last couple of days. I started of with a 1/12 Yamaha race bike from Tamiya. I kept most of the original details but modified and scratch built some to fit the theme. The model is resting on a sta[...]

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

This is the Hasbro tread speeder, that I modified to a desert speeder instead. I sawed off the treads, the toy-like missile launcher and it's mechanism, and other parts that I didn't want and replaced the opened areas with plasti-card and some m[...]
