  1. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    The Pukin' Dogs would be proud NZEOD! Arbit, it's not based on any one design, just a small patrol/fast attack missile boat. It's the 1/72 Tamiya PT-15 hull (ripped off by Trumpeter) heavily modified to what you see. Even the hull is heavily modified for the prop channels. This will be one of my few 1/72nd scale models. 1/20th and 1/24th figures are perfect for shading. It's basically your main base color with shading in the shadows and then adding a bit of white to the main color for highlights on the surface. The you do it again with a lighter shade yet and so on in layers. Wargamers do it to add depth to their figures. There's tons of tutorials out there. - MT
  2. Hasegawa 1:4000 SDF-1 (DYRL)

    Yeah, I believe that is Dorobou 's build. It is an awesome build! - MT
  3. Hasegawa 1:4000 SDF-1 (DYRL)

    I would suggest using those 6mm geared motors if you really want to motorize the Daedalus. Screw drive or get a SLOW geared version and use a lever or something. That will be a tight fit alone! You could probably get most of it to fit in the legs. Did you solve your battery issue with the Arduino? The opening sequence of DYRL would be great to see all the lights and how they are sequenced - plus some artisitc license. Use magnets as contacts and to hold the ships in place, then you can remove them from the SDF-1. Just some ideas. - MT

    Looking good Thom! You can see the throttle quadrants and everything! I love the paint scheme and detail Chavakaiser! It has a realistic look to it. The ship and your figure look GREAT Arbit! The fiber optics take a fairly bland design and make it stand out. The figure looks great with your updates. Are you going to paint highlights on the clothing for depth? ALMOST DONE with the ship. Biggest change was adding a 1/4" lip around the top of the deck from the wheelhouse to the stern. The lip is a "C" channel of styrene that a square tube slides into snuggly. The square tube goes onto the lip of upper deck. So the top deck slides on and is now mostly water proof. No fasteners to undo. I extended it to cover the "exhaust" and give me a small helipad (helicopter sold separately, batteries not included). Also added the "glass," Harpoon missile tubes, rebuilt the .50 cal HMGs with brass parts, and added a ton of detail all over the place to include bollards and other tie downs. The crane was built of spare parts and the inflatable boat needs to be finished up. - MT
  5. Hasegawa 1:4000 SDF-1 (DYRL)

    This is cool, it is not just the main weapon that is new, the rail guns and other items are new too " the OT ultra fast rail cannon of the shoulder, the elbow joint, the bridge (head), a part panel of the fuselage , It is a model that set secondary guns of each place with new parts. " I was disappointed with the cruiser mode, but this is much better! - MT

    Nice Jean Arbit! That Tiger will look good once you get some paint on it Zombie. Just hang in there with it! - MT
  8. 35th Anniversary VF-1

    Thanks NZEOD! It's hard to believe its been 35 years too! - MT
  9. Max Factory 1/20(!) VF-1S/A Hikaru

    The details do look minimum. The fan blades look shallow without having real blades, just engraved lines. What's with the heads? They should be separate from the fuselage piece. Not to mention the laser thicknesses? Then again, this is NOT the final kit we are looking at so take what you see with a grain of salt.- MT

    NZEOD - Those buildings are cool for a diorama! That will look awesome. What material are they made of? NYANKODEVICE - That will be a cool diorama and I think you chose a good scale. The 1/15000 is too small to go into detail with. - MT
  11. M Frontier: Heavy Soldier Vajra

    (Russian accent) Dosvadania to dose Russian veekles! That came out great Xigfrid! Its cool to see people make models that aren't available commercially. Great finish and execution over all! - MT
  12. 1/72 Bandai VF-1J build

    That kit is coming along great! The shape of the nose always bothered me too. The extra mini-binder data card that came in each one (that hopefully you got) were really cool too. Mine are framed in my shop. - MT

    That's cool Kelsain! Dang, I better hide that ring better now... - MT
  14. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    If it says "King Bong" on the bottom, its gotta be good! Does it need power to levitate, or is that for rotation and lighting only? The diorama is a good idea with that LCAC too! - MT

    Thanks CrossAir! They are from the Italeri 3.7cm Flak gun. I had to heavily sand the backs and then link them together around the base. That diorama sounds cool Arbit! -MT
