Bandai 1/72 Poe’s X-wing

Finished Bandai 1/144 Millennium Falcon

Sometimes you have those builds that get out of hand, this was one of those. This particular build started out as a "paint mule" for my upcoming build of Bandai's 72nd scale Falcon that came out last fall. Things quickly took a turn when my wi[...]

AMT/ERTL USS Enterprise E, Nemesis movie Version, 1/1400 Scale.

The Falke – Redux

Here is a model I did a little while back. It is Falke model by Hasegawa: As usual with practically all my builds, I like to give models my own personal touch. The Falke is definately no exemption here. I have heavily modified the original kit[...]

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[...]
