The 'Hey look at this really cool model build I saw' post

Recommended Posts

We have hundreds of awesome builds here, but sometimes when goofing around on the internet you come across something that looks cool, but you don't really want a separate thread on it as it might just be a pic or two....So this is that thingy

 

I'll open it up with this awesome build I came across last night-just incredible. Can't remember if it was posted before, sorry (I'm old)

Always enjoy dioramas especially when they capture a particular scene or piece of art like the IMAI boxart.

I saw this Regult a while back painted in the same box art style.

This is a cool thread!  Now I know why it's hard to find eggs in some places! I love the box art models. It's all really cool though. -MT

I love the off-white/grey accents on the leading edges. Gonna go break out my VF-1S and see how it looks on it!!

Yeah, I like the grey accents too, very "field-repair/field-repaint" ish.  (Would be even more so if they were asymmetric)

Thanks Shawn, that Tinami page is AWESOME! Tons of stuff and cool ideas.

Darth - Where's the HUGE room inside that thing with the little control panel in it to take down the whole ship? That seems to be all the giant Republic ship designs :D - MT
