    Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Thanks Arbit! Zoom away! It couldn't be any worse than the judges at last weekend's model show. And no I didn't pick up and places as there are far too many flaws. I only entered for a laugh. Yep 63mm to the top of the deployed tail fins. Thanks dude! It did take a while. I may do another kit in the future in a similar pattern but different colours. Cheers, Brett

    Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Great work guys! And I am especially loving the 1/48 VF-1s. I can tell you what isn't on my workbench any more...this VF-0B! Finally finished two years after I started it. Rubbish pictures but better ones will have to wait until after I move cities. So glad it is finished so that I can move onto the next shelf queen! Cheers, Brett

    Hello to all fellow builders

    Welcome aboard Jagimis! I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with as you have picked some great kits to start out with. Makenaurenyou checknout WM Cheng's step by step builds (sticky'd in the workbench forum) as they are great resources. Hexworks in 1/72 scale but the techniques are universal. Cheers, Brett

    What will Hasegawa do next?

    They do keep repopping it though so it must be popular enough. I'd say if we hadn't of had macross delta we would have had more kits in 1/48. By all accounts Hasegawa are a pretty small company so they are probably near max rate of development. - Brett

    1/100 Gnerl recast

    Wow you did a great job considering the rubbish casting quality! I hope you didn't pay more than $10 for it otherwise you have been ripped off. Is the blue colour a custom scheme? BTW did you know that both Plastic Cretins (Exo on the boards) and I both produce Gnerl kits that haven't been ripped off somebody else's work and are cast super clean? -Brett

    Mos-cah-to! Models

    Yeah I was amazed how much scanning services cost just recently when a bloke I know wanted some work down. There will be a bit of a wait until 3D scanning comes down in the same way that 3d printing has. Perhaps when AR/VR really takes off there will be an uptake as people will want to be able to scan in grandma's ashes into their VR house I can't wait to see what kind of goodies I'll get access to next year as there is some bits and pieces of the job that require 3D scanning... - Brett

    Valkyrie Canopy Masks - Now available at HLJ!

    G'day lads, just thought I'd pop in and let you guys know that we are are looking at producing a line of canopy masks for the Hasegawa 1/72 and 1/48 Valks (at least to start with). Personally I could never get those decals they give you work without looking like a huge mess, so I always masked and painted by canopies which is a huge PITA. While prototyping I can say that masking up now only takes a few minutes before you're back in action. Anyway let me know if you are interested or if you have any input/suggestions or goo and bad experience with canopy masking sets. EDIT: These are starting to become available now so I'll list details here in the first post so they are easy to find. So far we have the following sets available (or will be soon): 1/48 scale VF-1A/J/S DYRL(Hasegawa canopy part N -1) - AUD$8.25 each. 1/72 scale VF-1A/J/S (Hasegawa) - AUD$5.50each. All orders include postage within Australia. International orders add a flat AUD $3.00 for postage. I can be PM'd here or via email here. Cheers, Brett

    Thanks Arbit! I didn't even know that they were on Hobbysearch as we have been dealing directly with the Japanese distributor. -Brett

    Valkyrie Canopy Masks - Now available at HLJ!

    There will has been and will continue to be a delay with the VE/VT-1 canopy masks due the Kamjin kit being moved up the schedule...and the fact that I don't have a canopy to use for development like I thought I did. Oops. In other newd our canopy masks are niw available at HLJ woohoo! Cheers, Brett

    1/72 Kamjin Kit Reissue

    Agreed. He's a bit short for 1/60 and could arguably be too short for 1/72 unless you care about figures fitting into the vehicles. 138mm at 1/72 scales out at 9.936m and hes just able to fit in the Glaug when the Glaug is sized correctly for 1/72. Damn you anime magic! Damn you to hell! - Brett

    1/72 Kamjin Kit Reissue

    For those who were curious, here's a quick size comparison with the hastily cleaned up and assembled Kamujin kit next a 1/60 VF-1A, 1/72 ground crew and a 1/72 Regult Heavy Missile Carrier. Oh and a severed head - Brett

    No model should languish on the Shelf of Doom. John used to provide a copy of the buck as a cutting template. Does your kit have that? If so and you are willing to send it down to me I can vac form replacements for anyone who wants them. I had to vac form visors for the Gnerl pilot and have some left over thermoform clear plastic. Cheers, Brett
