Hi there,
I'd like to share my 1/35 scale Mr Kim build here. It is my only movie related model yet, normally I build less famous concepts or my own ideas.
I started this one last year, paused some months, and hope to finish it this summer.
Most parts are from scratch with a little kitbashing. Few kitchen decoration taken from accessory kits.

Here are pictures of the process up to now, hope you like it:

What a first post! That's a staggering level of detail, beautiful work. Would really enjoy seeing what other things you've built.

This is a fantastic replica- you took this rather obscure subject and really brought it to life!

(Extra stars for the food)

Absolutely ASTOUNDING! Love the details. Could you explain how you did a few of them? Namely the vegetables, the bamboo frame and , the tiny bottles and like everything else? :)

Wow, thanks for all the great comments! :)

They would be offtopic in this forum because not movie related. I still have to do my "Please introduce yourself"-Post this weekend, so I'll post some links there.

Yes of course. Gimme a few days.

Strode and all who are interested, here's how I made some of the details:

Most of the food are melted sprue pieces. Rice and noodles are stretched sprue (see warship rigging), then cut into pieces. Noodles were wrapped around a wire first.
Vegetables
: Holding the end of a stretched sprue near a flame, it shrinks again and gets thicker, reminding of a pepperoni. Or carrot. Or chicken drumstick. Or undefinable things of a rat. Depends on color, size and accident. To experiment and then decide what it could be is the best way here.
Same for dried mushrooms, potatoes and the like: heated irregular sprue pieces.
The roast is also sprue, sanded to an oval form, painted dark brown and then cut into regular slices.
Onion rings or calamari
: cut shrinking tube.

Fortune cookies
: punched and folded shrinking tube (then shortly heated to keep the form)

Bottles
: transparent shrinking tube. You can also put the tube on a metal profile to get different forms for olive oil or ketchup bottles. Heating and pulling leads to the bottleneck. After cooling, a bath in future pledge or whatever you use for cockpit windows increases the glass effect. These pictures are without bath.

Lanterns: 3mm LED put into a semi transparent bending straw. With additional wires and a paper bottom.

Knifes: just paper. The handle of the knifes in the left picture is an additional piece if paper on each side. To the right, I used wood glue for the handles of the chopping knifes.

Pots, pans, barrels and so on were taken from kitchen acessories.

For the bamboo I have to sort the pictures first.
