    Destroyed Planet VFX Maquette

    Here is an ALMOST finished version of the shot. The planet part is complete, though. This is the miniature with CG enhancements on top.

    Painting and Weathering Bandai AT-AT Part 1 Tutorial

    If you mean the last part of the video, that's just the first step. As I mentioned before, there will be smaller and smaller details added in Part 2 which will make that a non-issue.

    Painting and Weathering Bandai AT-AT Part 1 Tutorial

    Hey everyone. I have noticed alot of nice videos out there on weathering tanks, airplanes, and other such things, but there seems to be a lack of videos focusing on scifi subjects. To that end, I've started a new video series to focus on weathering of scifi vehicles. I kick it off with the...

    Bandai 1:350 Millennium Falcon Vehicle Model

    Oh yes, I do. I'm just building a couple of smaller Falcon kits to get in all the practice I need for the PG. I might do it later this year or next year.

    Bandai 1:350 Millennium Falcon Vehicle Model

All Vallejo Model Air (VMA) Primer - Black Stynylrez Base Coat - MicroLux Reefer White (made by Vallejo) Very slightly darker base coat panels -...

    Bandai 1:350 Millennium Falcon Vehicle Model

    Finished the 1:350 Bandai Millennium Falcon. Without a doubt the smallest model I've done. I did everything I could to cram as much detail from the 5ft studio model onto this tiny model.

    Miniature Spacecraft in The Mandalorian Star Wars TV show

    That model also looks pretty small for a hero miniature.

    Miniature Spacecraft in The Mandalorian Star Wars TV show

    The Orville made 7-8 stock shots with a miniature, but the vast majority of shots are CG. Also, I DO have a 3-AXIS Motion Control unit. I just need to finish a model to film with it...heh.

    Miniature Spacecraft in The Mandalorian Star Wars TV show

    That may have been true in the past, but CGI rendering technology has taken a huge leap forward in the past 5-6 years with physically based rendering. Ideally, with the right artists, you could match miniature photography and not be able to tell the difference.

    Miniature Spacecraft in The Mandalorian Star Wars TV Show

    So here's something unexpected. The Mandalorian, the new Star Wars TV show, is using miniature VFX for space craft. That's pretty much unheard of since 1997. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE miniature spacecraft. BUT, in the practicality of TV production, it doesn't seem to make sense to me. That...

    Bandai release schedule

    I still want an OT 1:144 Falcon. Maybe this one will be pretty close with the round dish. I dunno.

    Bandai release schedule

    For the past 2 or 3 years, I've been waiting for them to. I've been tempted a few times to order OT 3d printed conversion parts. It would probably look pretty good, but it won't look AS GOOD as a Bandai part. So I keep hoping they'll do one between sequel movies and they don't.
