Re: Zvezda Star Destroyer

I had the camera out today for other things and decided today is a good a day as any to take a couple of update shots. I'm not as far along as I would have liked but I had the spare time. I'm almost finished the top. I just have to finish the edging and then the top will be considered done. I test f...

Re: Zvezda Star Destroyer

Thanks guys! So, I have managed to get most of the starboard sidewalls and roof parts detailing done with only 3 left to go. Then it'll be time to blend in the walls to the surface and add some other stuff around - then the last part of the top side surface detailing will be over. I'm still deciding...

Re: Zvezda Star Destroyer

Thanks guys! Steve, feel free to share anything on this thread - I'm cool with it ;) quick update. I've finished with the top side of the nose section for now and won't be adding any more surface detail to it until it's joined to the rear section. I'll be moving on the the main superstructure sidewa...

Thanks Shawn

Tamiya LaFerrari

Hi guys and girls So recently, my son has become obsessed with cars - in particular the LaFerrari and the Aventador. He got a 1/18 LaFerrari for Xmas, but I remembered that I had the Tamiya one built from a few years ago that was more than a little under whelming in regards to finish. So, after scou...

Re: Zvezda Star Destroyer

Thanks guys
This was referenced to me the other day and I bought one: https://www.amazon.com/LORESO-Bender...a-849814836633
I reckon this will be one of those tools where I will forever wish that I'd had one years ago
Suits my needs perfectly

I know I didn't So I have not long gotten back from holidays and decided it was high time I expended some time into this project. To be honest, I spent a lot of time thinking about this build and the things I could add a...

Re: Terminators

Interesting to see the results of that paint. Put me off buying it , that's for sure. I'll stick to Alclad I think I'd suggest thinly respraying it Tamiya Gloss Black from a rattle can without stripping it back and then Alclad over that. You wouldn't loose any details that way. Lacquer over acrylic ...

Re: Terminators

I'm keen to hear how you go with those paints as I have often ummed and ahhed about getting them. I've never really had the success with AK as I keep reading about, so I haven't tried their metallics range
