3,720 to 1 - or - Never Tell Me the Odds

Grabbed the Bandai TLJ Millennium Falcon and Resistance X-Wing kit. The X-Wings are 1/144 and the Falcon is supposed to be 1/350. Not a bad kit at all - very nice detail for the size.

1/72 A-Wing

Current build of a Bandai 1/72 RZ-1 A Wing Starfighter. Pretty much straight out of the box except for Green Strawberry photoetch kit and lighting. The fun part about lighig a Bandai kit is that their joints are so complicated that there is almost no room unless you hog out some plastic. Snaking the...

X-Wing "Fleet"

Thought I would post some pics of the various X-Wings that I have finished lately. 1/72 Bandai T-70 Resistance X-Wing with Poe's paint scheme.

Re: Jedha Statue "Imperial Escalation"

I've been wondering what to do with those tanks and this is a great idea (but now it's been done so I have to think of something else). Mine are just sitting on the shelf as cat bait.

Great work on a nice original idea!

Re: Bandai 1/48 AT-ST

I had a little cracking too from using enamels. THe issues is that the joints are so tight, the enamel degassing (as it dries) pushes the against the plastic making it crack. With other kits, I've usually used a little Tamiya Extra thin on all joints, and on moveable joints, I'm just careful with t...
