    Another Star Ship

    This ship has taken quite a turn! Can't wait to see what else you have in store. :cool BTW, love the theatre! This thing is starting to remind me of the luxury liner in the 5th element. Awesome work

    powerloader thing

    Thanks for the help robn1! I haven't been able to spot any online so I may go in another direction. This project was supposed to be quick and cheap so buying several 3rd hands is a little out of my budget. My resources are also quite limited as I live in a one bedroom apt. :lol

    Help me save my Guyver sculpt

    Just a shot in the dark here but what if you seal the sculpt in a large rubbermaid bin with a bowl of hot water? The vapor should absorb into the dry clay very easily. The water should continue to absorb into the clay once the bowl has cooled, but more slowly. Might be worth testing on some...

I've got a lot of experience to gain before I'm anywhere near your skill level Katsu-san but I'm having a lot of fun "MacGyver-ing" interesting solutions to problems as they arise. I'm particularly happy with my engine find which are plastic plumbing fittings I...

    yuumi2891103 inspired scratchbuild (pic intensive)

    Katsu's amazing Tempest build really inspired me to pick up a hobby that I haven't touched in over ten years. After a few small projects, I decided that something more serious was in order. I had a 1/450 Hasegawa Yamato and a 1/542 Revell USS Forrestal from childhood that I wasn't especially...
