    Red 6 Bandai 1/72 X-Wing T65 (WIP)

    Looking great, Korben. Superb landing area dio as well. I don't mean to hijack your thread, but if you wouldn't mind giving a rookie some advice..... The basecoat on this X-wing is beautiful...and I'm starting a new x-wing build and wanted to vary it up a bit from my others and was thinking...

    Bandai 1/72 Tie Interceptor (a must read!)

    That is really a sweet pic. I could be wrong, but it seems like you once mentioned in a different TIE thread that you were assembling a group of various models of TIES. I remember thinking that would make a great shelf display, and it most certainly does. Beautiful work !!

    Bandai 1/72 Tie Interceptor (a must read!)

    Thanks for the insight regarding your processes, Korben. I've been building kits for a couple of years now, but I have multiple hobbies so I don't put in as much time on models as a lot of you guys do, and I knew nothing about painting when I started so I've relied on YouTube and groups like...

    Saw a display of model kits at my local Walmart, including Enterprise C (?)

    Last year right around Christmas my Walmart had a center aisle display of models. It included some Star Wars Revell Build and Play, Flintstones "car", TV series Batmobile and some standard car kits (only one I can specifically remember was a Volkswagen Beetle).

    Rookie Airbrush Question (sorry - I know you experts are sick of these)

    Hey Basement, Thanks for the link. Gonna watch the vid after typing this and having a couple of slices for supper. Agree with your points, and am now back to seriously considering one of the Amazon brushes I originally mentioned. The 2 things that originally made me take notice of them was a...

    Rookie Airbrush Question (sorry - I know you experts are sick of these)

    Sindariel, thanks for the info, too. (Meant to thank you earlier, my mistake). Ebay is a great suggestion. I use ebay for collecting purposes, don't know why I didn't consider it here. The cheap rubber seals you mentioned is a prime example of what worries me regarding the "bargain" brushes...

    Bandai release schedule

    Add a 1/12 Destroyer "Droideka" Droid and I'm just happy. I saw Bluefin mentioned a few posts back, and that it is Bandai owned. I once heard that they offered replacement parts for Bandai kits (Gundam, I assume). I did a little research, and if I'm correct, they do not offer replacement parts...

    Rookie Airbrush Question (sorry - I know you experts are sick of these)

    Great idea on the coupon. And I have decided on gravity fed from the research I've done. You bring up a great point to consider with "how much I'll be airbrushing". I have several hobbies, so generally I work on models an average of 3 to 4 days a week, probably 1 to 3 hours on the days I do. I...

    First Order Tie Fighter Bandai 1/72

    Wow, great photography. Just beautiful. Also, I'm getting ready to start my Bandai Grievous and love what you did with yours, Scarecrow. Anyway, great photos.

    Rookie Airbrush Question (sorry - I know you experts are sick of these)

    After well over a year of model building I have decided to give airbrushing a try. I know, I should have done it long ago. Anyway, I have done extensive research but for someone who's never even seen an airbrush used in person there is a lot of info to take in. What I'm thinking of at present...

    Are Klean Strip Odorless Mineral Spirits Safe?

    Thanks korben. Gonna give it a try on Xwing. Going to have a base paint of fuselage. My Grievous model I don't plan on painting. Just weathering and washes. So I will probably avoid oil paints (and Tamita panel line accent). I love the Tamiya Panel line, but it worries me on bare plastic. May...

    Are Klean Strip Odorless Mineral Spirits Safe?

    I live in an extremely small town (1 walmart is about the extent of our retail paradise), so you can get a good idea what model building supplies I have access to locally. I want to give oil washes (and dot filter) a try and had a bandai X-Wing kit that was going to be my test subject. Of course...

    Batarossa

    Very cool.

    Bandai release schedule

    I could be wrong (and honestly didn't take 90 seconds to look before typing this) but is the mouse droid not just a slightly doctored-up astromech foot?

    Droideka / Destroyer Droid 1/12 scratch build

    Agreed. You gonna be taking pre-orders...?
