Science fiction, fantasy and mecha model building.
This is the 1/72 Y-Wing from Bandai. It is very good kit but so far the first one i wouldn't give to a kid. There is loads of piping it is finicky and fragile. This has taken the longest of any Bandai I have done. Most of the bast build was a f[...]
After hearing such great things about these Bandai Star Wars kit, I had to try something out of character. Even though these are 'snap tite' kits, they are premium quality and well engineered =. Plenty of detail. Almost zero filling and sandi[...]
I've had a pretty productive weekend with my little Falcon. After tracking down a misdelivered order of LEDs and fiber optics to my neighbors porch I mocked them up in the sub-light engines to get an idea of how they look. I will have to fabrica[...]
I participated a group building after year changeover and decided to do something new & small. My first motorcycle model is a bit special while it is an amalgam of bio-/mechatronics parts. Modified to military use, Battle Hopper is a mixtu[...]
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[...]

Started this one as part of a buddy build with 4 other guys, all building the same kit (either Moebius or Revell issue). Straight away, I wanted to change the OOB pose because I've always thought it looks weird! Took a fair amount of modificatio[...]
Here is a What-if model I built some years ago. The inspiration for this model was put into reality after seeing Igor Sobolevsky wonderful 3D art station work called 'Axiom Racing'. His 3d version is just breath taking. The scale is 1/20.
Yep. I am a sci-fi builder as well. :) This build was inspired from a 3D artist drawing of a wasteland hover bike, I found on the net. The 3D drawing gave me the fuel to build something similar. But as always, I kind of like to tweak things to g[...]
I finally finished a kit! Even though I visit iModeler nearly every day, I haven’t posted anything in quite a while having started a new job this school year that has kept me very busy. But, bit by bit, I kept at this one and present my Bandai 1[...]
