    Got a bit burned on a Studio Scale Tie fighter on eBay by Mike Tait!

    I'm sorry to say I've had the same issues. I was fully refunded after starting a paypal dispute, but I was given the run-around for months.

    Bandai Death Star II

    I love this model, but it's weird that they didn't cut away the panels to the lower left of the superlaser dish.

    Yeah well that baby is constructed from Quadanium Steel (R) so you're gonna need a gamma class plasma welding rig or a heavy duty vibra-sander at the very least.

    I always thought the Quadjumper looked like all the parts of Sebulba's podracer jammed up close together. A podjumper, if you will. I'm not a big fan of the art direction on the ships in the new trilogy. :angry

    Bandai release schedule

    I'll take a 1/72 AT-AT and a 1/48 TIE please. Anyway. I done did a quick mockup of the teeny DS with some of that egregious surface detail sanded down/filled in:

    THIS IS AN INSULT TO ALL MODELERS AND AN INDICATION THAT BANDAI IS FAILING Anyway...I wonder if it's possible to run some fibre optics from the LED unit to those wee headlights in the front? hmm.

    "Look at the size of that thing!" "Cut the chatter Red 2!" Well, I like it. And I think Bandai has been doing a fine job with its SW line. Not only are they nice and accurate in shape, they're super well engineered and a pleasure to put together. I wish we could have had stuff like this when I...

    I'd totally buy a 3 inch Death Star 2 if it was up to Bandai's usual standards.

    Many Bothans died to tweet us this information.

    Event Horizon kit - At Last!

    Hey! Got my 1/4000 EH today. It's, well, hmm. Not sure what I was expecting, but there's a lot of cleanup to be done. It's been printed in a translucent material that makes it a bit difficult to pick out the surface details, but they are there. Somewhere. I've put the 1/18 X-wing butt-plate (I...

    Suggestions for 1:24 X-wing and where to find them.

    I enquired about pricing on the Nexus about a month ago and was quoted $900 plus $130 shipping to the US, and he'll be casting both snowspeeder and X-wing kits sometime 'after March'.

    Studio scale X wing droid strip

    Would it be possible to get the dude from 3D Falcon Parts to custom print his 1/29 or 1/18 droid strip at 1/24? The next best option seems like it would be to chop up your stumpy droid strip from the Hasbro, space out the parts more correctly, then scratch-build the missing bits. That way...

    I'd like to get in on any of a new run, should you decide to go ahead!

    Event Horizon kit - At Last!

    It's worth checking back regularly. These things take a while to churn out, so the production rate is fairly low. I missed out on the 1/4000 the first time around, but nabbed one a few weeks later. Email the guy and let him know you're interested.

    I think that's for the finished and painted version.
