Ron Hembling shows us his final project images...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, January 17 2017
"Hi All,

Here are the usual pics and recipe.


Pilot - is from Hasbro and I superglued the joints and then puttied them up and once the putty was dry I used tissue paper to cover the outfit. I used the open hands from the Bandai Stormtrooper so the hands could lock together as the Hasbro hands were to closed to give them that stand at ease look.

Fighter - is from Bandai is 1/72nd scale and was built straight out of the box and I used a piece of plastic rod and the end of the stand attachment that comes with the kit to secure the fighter to the base.

Base - The fighters base is the one that comes with the kit and the pilots base is two Bandai bases that comes with the figures. I glued the two bases together and the painted them and used to empty inhalers for the canisters.

I painted everything using Vallejo paints.


I think its pretty to cool to see the pilot with his chosen vehicle in a kind of reference image dio.

Rodger gives us a new video!

He is back in action this time painting up his Ultimate Imperial Set along with gearing up two new Death Star Briefing Sets too. It is great to see Rodger back in his shop!

Finley002 finishes his Hera...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, January 17 2017
"So here she is you guys. My completed Hera (minus any paint touch-ups that will be done at a later date...) in addition to the face decals, I have implemented ball-jointed shoulders and knees as well as swivel wrists. It was a frightening endeavor since I wasn't 100 percent confident on the outcome. So during the operation, I had the Hera figure in the Amazon cart ready to replace one of my daughters favorite figures. I simply didn't have the courage to attempt jointed elbows. I didn't have any joints small enough the retain the aesthetic nature of her tiny elbows. Even the smallest joints would have enlarged her elbow to "bulbous" proportions... so I'll hold off for now."

That is just the start of his most excellent description and image review you can see at the aforementioned link.

Ajunta Pall is back with a mega update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, January 16 2017
"Heres a few wips I did last year Jan-Dec 2016 that I never posted here. They are all finished now of course but all of my customs are temporarily in boxes :-[ so until they are back on shelves and I can take updated pics, here are a couple I really dig from the animated series clone wars and rebels which are two very big interests of mine. Hope you enjoy. Thanks for looking

1)Luke Skywalker (Fan Fiction character of what I imagine Luke looking like if he were in Rebels cartoon) I realized that his belt and lower shirt was in backwards its since been fixed. Lol

2) Minister Maketh Tua (StarWars rebels)
3) young Boba Fett in mandalorian armor ( clone wars lost reels)
4) Jocasta Nu ( clone wars jedi librarian)"

All are fantastic! I like seeing all the homage being paid to Jocastu Nu!

Looks pretty good to me!

Legion078 talks diorama plants...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, January 16 2017
"So let's talk about artificial plants! Why? Because I think it's worth it! You might have noticed that it can be quite hard to find suitable material like (artificial) plants for your dioramas. That's why I would like to talk about this here!

During my time as exchange student in Michigan my host mother took me to Hobby Lobby a couple times. I can only remember this store as source of artificial plants. Most of them were not suitable for model building though, but more for decoration purposes. The second disadvantage was that Hobby Lobby or similar craft stores are not located in every city in the U.S. - for all of you living in the U.S. you might have better sources for model building supplies (like dollar stores maybe?)."

It is a nice pictoral resource base to get started. Stay tuned as I will research this myself and get you some links to get your supplied!

Larifari articulates up K-2SO...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, January 15 2017
It is pretty cool to see his full design process with diagram images that shows you exactly how he pulled this off. As you can see by the image above he can now put ole K2 in any pose he wants.

-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, January 15 2017
I think it would be cool to see a ton of different YT Falcon Mods myself. John shared this one on our Facebook Page. I like waking up to see what new things are posted there. It is always great to see the imagination and designs of star wars customizers.
