iModeler Sci-fi

Science fiction, fantasy and mecha model building.

iModeler at the Movies. Klingon Bird of Prey

I know it may be too early to post, but since this was a Christmas present for my sister and is leaving today I had to get some shots. The kit is AMT's 1/350 Klingon BoP made up as the HMS Bounty from Star Trek IV, The Voyage Home. I myself am [...]

Saturn V Launch Umbilical Tower fueling pipework

The various pipes needed to fuel the Saturn V ran up Side 2 of the LUT, attached to a frame, as shown in the B&W photo of LUT #1 during construction (the foreground is LUT #2). I started working on adding this frame last week (closeup and [...]

Progress on the 1/200 Saturn V Launch Umbilical Tower (LUT)

After several weeks off I finally got a day in the model workshop yesterday, which extended late into the night and several more hours this afternoon. While I made some progress on the 1/700 Hood and Arizona, the giant leap, to borrow a phrase, [...]

Bandai 1/12 custom Star Wars Clone Trooper

I swear to you guys that I do more than just Star Wars builds but I keep getting sucked into these Star Wars build offs! With that said go to Instagram #trooperbuildoff2 @dfmodelkits and vote for your favorite custom trooper voting ends on Nov [...]

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.
