New CSM, LM and S-IVB parts for 1/200 Apollo 11 LUT project

For the past few weeks I've usually gotten one more swing arm for the LUT up each weekend, with corresponding work to the pad base.  But for the past several days the pad and the mobile launcher have taken a back seat to improvements to the AMT [...]

Bandai 1/72 Y-Wing Starfighter

This is a kit that one could literally work on for a lifetime. I considered it. Panels galore to be painted in a myriad of grays and metallics and washes and filters to create variegated versions of those. Ultimately, I needed to call the kit [...]

I started this build of Godzilla from the 2016 film Shin Godzilla (the new Japanese version, pictured above) as a gift more my brother and sister-in-law after they dealt with the bulk of our mother's estate affairs last year after her passing.[...]

Saturn V Mobile Launch Tower – swing arms

I got back to work on the LUT yesterday, intending to complete some piping, continue work on the launch pad support stands, and start figuring out how to model the swing arms. The first two were straightforward, but the third involved what I enj[...]
