Re: 1/10 scale clone trooper phase 2 bust

Wow! I had to read your post more than once for it to finally set in. You did this in one day? Fantastic workmanship and attention to detail.

Re: 1/144 Sand Crawler

:D I said that also beacause you was speaking about figures to put arround it. Do you plane a diorama? ;) Yes, but for my shelf only, not for sale. Already received a land speeder, C-3P0, and R2-D2 from Shapeways. No time to paint them up just now, but later when I have time I'll do something with ...

Re: K-2S0 and Friends!

Nice work on all of these! Wish I could build droids but for some weird reason there's just no pull for me to build one. Too much "people-like" I suppose, and I really don't like painting figures. You should get some sheet styrene and bring K-9 to life rather than just an imaginary pal for your droi...

Nicve job Del, your painting looks awesome :shock:
Thanks. Sorry about the WIP page where I forgot to post the link to the Finished Work thread. I fixed that now. Looking forward to making more stuff dirty now that I'm not as afraid to make a mistake.

Oops! :oops: Forgot to post the link to the completed build. Not much different than here, but the photos are better.

Re: 1/72 TIE Crawler

With this post, I'm caught up on the build progress thus far. I used black primer, and then Tamiya Haze Grey TS-32 which I decanted and sprayed through my airbrush. Helpful hint - I use isopropyl alcohol as thinner for Tamiya paint, but it won't work on the spray cans as it curdles up almost immedia...

Re: 1/72 TIE Crawler

Great news that these are back Del - I've got the FM version sitting on my shelf but it looks a bit off next to the Bandai TIEs. Let us know when the Bandai conversion sets are ready to order and I'll get one. Also, nice work on improving the fit of the missing track piece - that was a bit annoying...

Re: 1/72 TIE Crawler

With the Bandai conversion parts shown above, the rest of the build is the same for either version. Pour stub areas on the track sections are covered by small sections of track that are to be trimmed slightly and fit into place. I changed this part of the kit a little, by pre-forming the track secti...

1/72 TIE Crawler

About a year ago, Stu Pidasso, aka The Jimi, aka JPG, was kind enough to sell me the TIE Crawler pattern that was mastered by Stefan Hacker. I've finally got the kit ready for re-release. Originally designed as Finemolds 1/72 scale, I've also made adapter parts so it's possible now to sell it as eit...

1/144 Desert Creeper (Sand Crawler)

By popular demand the Kessel Run Kits 1/144 Desert Creeper is available again, the cost is $145 USD and can be ordered directly from the website (link below in the signature line). Trying something different this time. I only have a couple of these ready to go on the shelf, but I've been getting ema...
