Science fiction, fantasy and mecha model building.

Bandai 1/12 R5 Droid

This is one of my older builds from 2015. Was doing a high weathering idea especially with the thought of oil leaks. Today I would approach this totally different but it is good to remember our older stuff for what we did right as well as where [...]

Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Series – NCC-1701D from STTNG 1:2500 scale

Star Trek USS Enterprise Series NCC-1701D AMT 1:2500 Model built by Dale Jackson - StratoArt.com - I loved this series of 1:2500 ships of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The decals for most were amazing, save for the NCC-1701C which I thought was a roy[...]

1/650 AMT USS Enterprise 50th Anniversary model

For the most part, I'm almost done with this kit, but I wanted to go ahead and photograph it. I still have yet to paint some details on it such as the end of the warp nacelles and so forth, so it's about 98% complete. Definitely an old AMT kit [...]

Bandai Space Battleship Yamato

This is part of Bandai's mecha series. Its a tiny capitol ship. Its sitting on a brick to give a sense of scale. Its small. But the detail isn't terrible and they sell for around 10.00. They are snap together and unlike many of our Western snap [...]

The Walrus

This build went together rather easy. I started off with the IDF Nagmachon APC kit from Hobbyboss, that I received as a reward for the 'Random Award' in November 2017. I then converted the kit into a hover unit using the kits original parts onl[...]

TIE interceptor

Hello all This is the Revell snap together TIE interceptor kit. I added cockpit details such as seat straps and consoul switches as well as a scratch built base and an R2 unit to fix the battle damage.

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 [...]

Battlestar Galactica (Newer Version) Cylon Centuion, Cylon Raider, Apollo’s Viper MK VII, Battlestar Galactica, and Starbucks Viper MK II

I loved the first series of Battlestar Galactica when I was a kid. When they re-did the series in 2004-2009 I was very busy with school work for college, and did not watch it. I did get to finally see it about a year ago on video. When I saw the[...]

Star Wars Rogue One Blue Squadron Leader General Antoc Merric

Blue Squadron did an awesome job of racing through the gate and getting into the battle of Scarif in Rogue One: a Star Wars Story. The Leader of Blue Squadron was Antoc Merric. He and his squadron of X-Wing fighters destroyed several of the AT[...]
