    Battle of the Planets (Gatchaman) - God Phoenix

    Awesome work! brings back fond childhood memories:) You think the Phoenix is wonky, try making Speed Racer's Mach 5. That thing changes from every angle! Robert:)

    1/12 Bandai Boba Fett - New Intro! (Almost Finished)

    That's and old technique. I used to use it to simulate tarps on armored vehicles. An oldie but a goodie! Robert

    Bandai release schedule

    That 3D print looks like it has a bit too thick of a paint job. I am STOKED to see the first test shot to see those super fine details pop! The panel lines should be quite a bit finer when molded also. This kit begs to be painted with an airbrush. Robert:)

    (Sort of) Ultimate Hasbro FrankenTIE?

    I'm working on the same project as you and I am beginning to think that Vintage wings are too BIG after attaching them to the Solo tie cockpit....too tall. Maybe someone with a studio scale tie could measure the height and width of their wings? The vintage wings are 15 and 1/4 high x 12 and 1/2...

    Bandai release schedule

    Can't wait-can't wait-can't wait! I think this SD will be the PERFECT size for handling and "playing" with. Kind of awkward with the Zvezda and PG Falcon. Robert:)

    What bothered me with the Zvezda even MORE than the narrow side trenches was the too wide bridge. Looks like Bandai corrected BOTH of those flaws. I can't wait to pick one up. Oh, and looks like I won't have to cut out the garbage chute either! Robert:)

    Movies that Suck Except for a Couple of Great Scenes

    Steve McQueen's Bullitt. Pretty boring(to me) except the EPIC chase scene. Robert

    Products that were not intended to be used in model making but work anyway

    Talcum Powder. Great for simulating mud on ground vehicles when mixed with the appropriate color. Robert :)

    Just Got my PG Falcon!

    I plan on building mine in flight mode and making my own stand and mount. As for the fans, not that I know of, but it's a cool idea! Robert:)
