Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

Woohoo, my shipment from Shapeways arrived early!

While I may have gone a little overboard with the height on my Space Marine, I wanted the body proportions to look right. He now stands just a bit short of 9" with the helmet, which is almost 9 ft scale height.

I guess he's a Primaris, then:

Need to drill some holes for the backpack mount & knee pads before I can get them attached properly. The elbow armor snaps over the existing Iron Monger joints. I'm also still working out how I'll do the attachment for the giant shoulder pads.

The required tolerances of the WSF left the backpack nozzles a bit loose, so I'm gonna have to figure out how to tighten those up without locking them in place...

My first helmet print was about 15% too large, but this looks much better.

I also whipped up a couple accessories for a loose (probably bootleg) Sabine Wren fig that I got off eBay. New pistols & her jet pack. I'm gonna try to update her to her Season 3 look.

Hey all, just thinking about making a 1/3000 Ataria Island for my 1/3000 SDF-1 and I was curious if there was any 1/3000 Buildings and ships around this scale? I'm starting this project next week and was curious if anyone has any recommendations before I start. Thanks!

I finally got some of the 1/144 models “done”. What a madness to detail at this scale. They have been on my workbench fora year

They do need more decals, “flare” lights and subtle details

The future is wireless. Now we just need these in 1-3 mm size!

you can build your own. its using a disconnected transformer, one size is in the base and pumping out a couple of Watts of power (excessive!) and the other side of the transformer coil in in the LED base. Google Instructibles and seach there site for the tutorial on building your own wireless charger for cellphones

Thanks, slide! Display options - now that's something to think about!  :D

Thanks, modelglue!

Thanks, teckno viking! Is that a custom Colonial Marine?

He Is indeed. 6.5 inches tall. Cloth uniform and NECA Marine armour. Modded the Armour so working buckles and cloth straps. Ab plate is worn correctly too.
Plus now have Screen correct Camo BDUs x 3 sets to make film versions in cloth Uniforms.

I have seen these, but seriously the price is holding me.

I wouldnt pay for that either, I just like the way things are headed.

Made a mold of the Floor plates and now can cast as many as needed. Each is 5" x 6".  Works for corridors, Rooms and Range.

Makes for an awesome Aliens display!

What are the risks with this coil induction? Would the LEDs burn out or heat up more likely than normal wired LEDs?

Been working on this. It’s the TIE Defender 1/72 kit from Kessel Run Kits. I added som extra details and used the Cockpit ball from a Bandai TIE Interceptor as I like that it is larger than the kit provided one that was using the Fine Molds TIE ball, and it is also open instead of solid. I also used the Bandai kits panel tip blasters as they are bigger and more detailed than the small resin ones. Just need to give it a light wash and then attach the solar panels.

Thanks for posting that video Arbit! The narrator was funny to listen too and him showing how the LED lights worked. I guess it would be easy resin coat them and make them water proof for our own purposes. - MT

That thing is beautiful.  Man, I wish Bandai would get to work on the rest of the canon ships, and then start making those game-based designs for real.  Always preferred that style to the elongated rear section used in the old games. 

Now I seriously want a Bandai Missile Boat kit... original game, not the blocky X-Wing vs Tie Fighter variant. ^_^

Me too. :)

The Defender, though, is now Canon! It is in Rebels, and is a project of Thrawn. I believe it never sees full production due to cost and complexity. It is actually even referenced in the new Incredible Cross sections book for TLJ as it was “resurrected” by the FO and its technology was used for the TIE Silencer.

Tinfoil your cockpit sides to avoid light bleed through. I sabd mine, then dip them in alclad aqua clear then slap on the decal frames then paint the inner side of the frames in cockpit grey but leave the canopy loose until EVERYTHING else is done

Ok..... after about a 6 month hiatus of getting engaged,  moving her in, getting her settled in a new job, planning the wedding, having the wedding, Thanksgiving, and now Christmas and New Years right around the corner, y'all may have noticed that I haven't been able to do much of anything around here!  Well...today I finnnnally got this off the slow boat from Japan, so I'm gonna start getting back into things with something simple and get some build time in on the weekends!  A little prequel love is first up! Jedi scum!!!

I have no idea how or if this will work out, but it sure is fun to try.

Those are just test parts for fiddling around.

Hope it works out. That will be cool to see in operation.
