    Star Wars Bandai Tamashii Nations R2-D2 complete Chogokin Diecast Sixth Scale with stand, box, accessories

    Note: the upper lamp fixture atop the dome is loose, I think it may have been glued down once but has now come off. In any case I just laid it on top where it belongs, it looks fine. Could be easily re-glued by the buyer. Heavy diecast rendition of Artoo with spring-loaded center foot, crisp...

    Bandai 1/144 AT-AT Imperial Walker build

    I've completed my build of the Bandai 1/144 AT-AT Imperial Walker. I added a red 0402 SMD LED to the interior of the cockpit and glues some AK Interactive micro balloons around various areas to simulate settled snow. My full gallery can be seen on my website. Star Wars Ep V Ship Models |...

    Bandai Boba Fett visor replacement question

    Random question, on one of my custom Bandai Fett kits, my visor got some finger nail imprints embedded in it as I didn't realize it was a softer plastic when pushing it in. I've since replaced it with a new visor from another Bandai Boba kit but now that one is gonna be short a visor, so my...

    Bandai 1/144 Millennium Falcon decal questions plus build progress...

    Hi All, I'm new to the forum and I just got back into modeling after a long hiatus when my son got me the Bandai TLJ Clear Vehicle set. I had a lot of fun putting those tiny kits together and decided I wanted something a little bigger so I picked up the 1/144 Bandai RoS Falcon. I'm impressed...

    Bandai B-Wing

    Hello all, I was lucky enough to get a Bandai B-Wing for Christmas this year, and so these past couple of weeks have been full of airbrushing, trying new techniques, and getting some lighting installed! The main inspiration for this build/paintjob came from Andy Moore, whose skills I could...

    Bandai ISD 1/5000 light up solution discussions

    Hello First time poster long time reader I have seen a lot of you have built the bandai ISD 1/5000 kit and I'm very tempted to get it, however I'm not a fan of the light kit version as it seemes like a hassle to turn it on and off and also change the batteries which will basically leave it...

    Bandai 1/72 Tie Fighter Completed

    Hey guys! Finished up this Bandai Tie a few months ago and finally decided to make a post and share some pics. Overall, like all of the Bandai Star Wars, it is an excellent kit. Any modeler with basic skills could piece one of these together in a few hours, and painting it is not really any...

    My 1:5000 Bandai Star Destroyer

    Boy, what a love hate relationship I have with this model. The casting and overall look of this model is breathtaking, the detail, proportions is everything I've wanted for a SD model all my life... .. But boy, the inside engineering killed me as I did everything I could to avoid the 'smiley'...

    HELP! I need a source for the clear Bandai Star Wars 1/144 ship mounts.

    HELP! I need a source for the clear Bandai Star Wars 1/144 ship mounts. I have looked online, Etsy, eBay, etc, etc. Does anyone know who is making these?

    4-Legged Scout Walker: "Blue Max" (full build)

    Hey, folks! Long time lurker, first time poster. Very happy to be here; this place is truly awesome and continually inspiring. Short background: I'd built a few Star Trek ships in the 1990s, but didn't really get into modelling in a big way. After about a 15-year hiatus, I got into modelling in...

    X-Wing and TIE fighter on Exegol—1/72 diorama with Bandai kits

    Hello all, Been a while since I last visited the forum and I’m looking for some thoughts/opinions on a diorama I’m planning. One of the images from “The Rise of Skywalker” that stuck with me long after I’d seen the film in the theater was the sight of Luke’s old T-65 X-Wing that Rey had flown...

    Bandai Boba Fett 1313 version

    Hello, here is my take on the Boba Fett's 1313 look from the never released SW1313 video game. I tried to emulate the concept art closely, although I did opt for gauntlets as in other artwork he is shown wearing them. The base used is Bandai's Boba Fett kit and I used most of it, although some...

    Bandai 1/5000 Star Destroyer Lighting Plan

    Hi guys, I bought the 1/5000 limited lighting edition Star Destroyer kit, but don't like the idea of opening up the model every time I want to turn the lights on and fiddling with the switches. So I'm thinking I'll ditch the Bandai lighting kit and go Arduino ESP32 (I started something similar...

    Andyland's Bandai 1/72 PG Falcon

    After working on it for ages, my PG Falcon is nearly ready for painting and weathering. Since I've added custom lighting to it (making up most of it as I go) I'm posting some pics here, in case they help anyone. Thanks to StevenBills for his hints as I started the process and the encouragement...

    Bandai Y-Wing part B2-23

    I'm wondering if anyone who built a Bandai Y-Wing in landing position would sell me their landing gear covering piece. I lost mine, I should have glued it.

    City of Jedha and Star Destroyer diorama

    Was really inspired by a few of these threads so here is my version, it's pretty much finished although I might tinker with the rock color more down the road. Maybe one day I'll go back and add lights to the SD too. The City of Jedha kit was from the awesome JPG Productions and the SD is the...

    Bandai Perfect Grade Millennium Falcon 1/72

    „I love you!“ „I know.“ Even if rarely more romantic words were spoken we all know that Han Solo’s true love was the Millennium Falcon. No, not Chewie (just a bro). Indeed, it was the Falcon. As with the Bandai kit there is a definitive Falcon out there, it’s time for me to build that thing...

    Looking for obscure Millennium Falcon 5 footer references photos

    Hi Everyone! I'm looking for photos of the 5 footer's bottom port side rear quadrant, opposite the quadrant with the big gash/hole. Believe it or not, this area is very poorly represented in the available reference photos. I have all the images from the reference links from NKG's amazing...

    Bandai 1/72 A-Wing mini diorama

    I made this mini-diorama to match the one I did for my B-Wing with landing gear. Once it's all done, I'll post a picture of both of them together. I'm also going to do one for a Y-Wing and an X-Wing... Might as well get the whole gang together!

    Bandai Millennium Falcon 006 Scale Kit Build

    Hello! Thought I'd share my work on the smallest version of the Millennium Falcon that Bandai offers. I made a video of the build process (includes lots of silliness) and posted pictures on my Instagram page (Dane Crandall (@prop_rocks) • Instagram photos and videos). Let me know what you...

    This is my Bandai 1/48 scale X-Wing starfighter. I have heavily modified this kit with additional electronics and a custom base. The torpedo firing and and wing functions are all that were kept from the original kit. I added full cockpit lighting with targeting computer lighting, engine...
