    NICE lit Enterprise! Did you rig that up yourself, or use some sort of light kit...?

    Actually that Enterpise has a funny history. I had originally the ST:TMP kit with light set. I had assembled that (at the age of 14) and thought it was pretty good. Then they came out with the STII:TWOK model with no lights but better details on the mold (such as the panel etchings). Well, my ST:TMP model met with disaster...the warp engine broke at the base, and you all know the pain it is to reattach and make even those things! So I ripped out the light kit, bought the ST:TWOK kit, bought a half dozen more grain of wheat bulbs, adapted it to a 9-volt instead of two C's and viola! The only * about it is that I had the dilithium crystal dome light up a bright blue and the impulse drives bright red, but the two bulbs croaked! ARGH!

    But in my basement, tucked away, is the STV Enterprise with lights and sounds just waiting for the day to come with Kirk has to say "Code 000 destruct 0". [​IMG]

    Well most of the model kits that I've built this past 3-4 years have been Gundams...until recently when I built the SMT Probe Droid. [​IMG] I have about 50 Gundam models, mainly master grades and 2 perfect grades. I'm in the process of building a Macross at the moment. I'll eventually muster up the dough for an SMT ATAT and maybe that APC and Drop Ship they got listed as coming soon. [​IMG]

    Nice work LA.

    I haven't finished a kit in some time, but here are some finished or close to finished. (I wish I could post more than the same old ones...I guess I have to get crackin.) [​IMG]

    Sleepy Hollow

    Bates Mansion

    Rancor

    USS Constellation

    I'm glad this section was added. I've been visiting the RPF for over a year now, but couldn't really post anything on topic, so I kinda just read and drooled alot. Now I can post.

    Thanks for the addition.

    I think thats the first time I've heard anybody saying that the panel etchings are good!! Most people go to great lengths to get the panels smooth (myself included) and would kill for that TMP Ent that you ripped apart for the lights! [​IMG]

    Sulu - I'm a bit of a nut about details though and the etched panels worked so much better when painting them the alternating colors (which are hard to see in the pic). The smooth one was very, very thin plastic in comparison so the lights didn't work well with it unless you heavily lined the inside.

    Phase - I loved the Black Hole actually, but the Cygnus model was a B**CH to paint! I mixed a flourescent orange with Testors model yellow to get that odd orange look the windows had. I think I've broken the antennaes off that * thing at least a dozen times each!!! I'll try to take some pics of it later on.

    Rogues - LOVE the Pyshco house! That looks great ("NORMAN! GET IN HERE NORMAN!"...I love you can see her/him in the window!). The Rancor with drool looks great too!

    No, no prize.

    The first and 3rd one is an artist interpritation of an anime character called Devilman. The second is Shiranui the Cyber Ninja. Then there is Iria 1/6 scale from the Live action movie Zieram. Next is another artist interpretation of a character called Guyver, the kit is called Failed Guyver.
    Finaly is Zeiram from Zeiram 2.

    Glad you guys like them.

    Well, it is a 1/6 scale vinyl kit, the kit's name is Iria sculpted by Takayuki Takeya and was distributed by the company Flachion. The kit has been long out of production. It is from the Japaneese Live-Action movie Zeiram which is based on the anime called Iria. The actress that plays Iria in the movie is Yuko Moriyama.

    [​IMG]

    I just placed the kit on the scanner for these two pics.

    This is a kit based on the same character from the sequel Zieram 2

    Tom- That Seaquest job was my first airbrush attempt, using a $15 badger and a can of compressed air.

    Boba Flint- That was a fun one to do. There's actually close to 6 square inches of plastic in that 1/2 inch hole.

    yea i get guyver and gundam confused when i type a lot.

    still, sweet kit. very sweet.

    i dont have that many models (mainly just love the glue [​IMG]) but the ones ive built in the past 6 years or so were vinyl kits (spiderman, venom, terminator, wolverine, batman, etc) and before that were the lovely star wars vinyl kits, then before that was the always awe inspiring "plane" or "car" kits. i never got really detailed with em (this was when i was a kid), so mostly they ended up with holes or smashed something or another, and i ended up making a "crashed plane" diorama for school projects later in life.

    we have some serious talent on this board!

    centralrepaor - whats that final pic a model of? i have never seen it before...

    Gah I hate you, you have a guyver model[​IMG]

    since I'm practically not good at painting whatsoever I'm always looking for a finished one on ebay caase I know if I do it myself I'll screw it up and it'll be a waste of my money.

    The only models I've done was the BTTF 2 model, got put together nicly but has a crappy paint job if u ask me, and I also did the Ecto-1 model That one came out excellent (probably since I didn't have to do alot of painting)

    I'm working on a jedi starfighter model now (probably start it up again in the summer just haven't had time to concentrate on it) and it's easy enough for me it's just decals.
