Ron Hembling finishes his latest Fett Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, May 24 2017
"Hi All,

Completed a commission piece for a mate, please enjoy.

Recipe

Fett - Fett is from Bandai and was built staright out of the box, I glued the joints and then filled them in and once that was all done I used tissue paper for the outfit.

The weapon has had it's muzzle sealed and a muzzle from a DLT-19 was glued on and the ribbing along the barrel was doen using thin strips of plastic card. The cape was doen using a dried baby wipe and the several washes were done and then it was cut to shape and glued inplace.

Base - is built up foam board and balsa wood, I used watered down spakfilla to cover the walls. While the spakfilla was drying I got a lightly damp baby wipe and dapped it over the spakfilla to give it a more natural look.

The consoles were done using plastic card and the pipe is plastic tube, I used greeblies from the parts box for the bench section and the grill was cut out from a plastic fly swatter. The figure and base were painted and weathered using Vallejo Paints and pastel chalks.

Ron"

Now that is one awesome dio and Figure!

-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, May 23 2017
"Here is my first entry for the No Paint Kit Bash competition. I was thinking of Jan Ors, and how much her name sounds like Jyn Erso. Anyway this is a mashup of the two characters. Basically a Rogue One era Alliance female sniper. Head is from the 5 POA Jyn Erso, torso is from Sarissa Jeng, skirt is from Kithaba I believe and the lower legs are from Mara Jade. Boil and pop and reassemble. Added Rey's backpack and a sniper rifle and viola. Hope you all enjoy..."

Looks awesome to me. Remember there is still plenty of time for you to enter your own kit-bash custom. Click here for the full Contest Details and see some of the prizes!



Darth Sinister presents a Different Point of View!
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, May 23 2017
"Hi Guys. Been a while. I can see some light at the end of the tunnel in a few months.

Nothing special here. An update of an old comic cover from waaaay back. A little nicer and a little cleaner and a title change. Hope y'all like it.

Also, I've been working on a Facebook page. Nothing really new there. Putting stuff on a little at a time. New stuff will be coming though, so keep an eye out.

Here's a link.
https://www.facebook.com/DarthSinisterCreations/"

It is so great to see him back! And if you are not familiar with DS' work you are in for a treat. He presents a view of Star Wars as seen through some of our favorite movies of the ages, as you can see with A Fistful of Star Wars in the image above.



JDeck adds to his Throne Room...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, May 23 2017
"I did a little more work on my Jabba's throne room display this weekend. I got a few walls fabbed up, I built the stairs on either side of Jabba's dais, and I got the inside of the main arch covered. Granted its all held together with toothpicks essentially, so its a little wonky. I used foamcore for the inside of the archway. I had to strip off the paper, because it will fold instead of bend with the paper. So I spent most of yesterday soaking and stripping. Next I'll start finishing the flooring, including an attempt to make the floor grate."

I really think this is gonna turn out fantastic!



Panther is back in action in Gotham...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, May 23 2017
"Tonight, I got a bit carried away!

What started as only wanting to apply a base coat of limestone to the underneath of the roof (which I did). Ended up by adding beams to the ceiling, to straighten out the bending board and then having the bright idea of gluing the roof to the base! The black board has been placed back in but not glued in place yet. But I am now at a conundrum as to
1) Do I paint the top brick work as I have the others
Or
2) Leave the roof as is and stick the black core in place before I add the extra rooftop garnish?

Thoughts please.

I also still need to add the base, first floor windows/door and accessories for inside before saying this is completed."

I know it is sure looking great so far. Stop in and help him answer to his question.

Sjefke gets his kit-bash on for the latest challenge...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, May 22 2017
"Hey Yarders

It's been ages since I posted anything. Here's a figure I whipped together.

He's not a cool bounty hunter or a smuggler or a Sith. I just feel his particular career path is under-represented in the Star Wars Universe."

Ron Hembling starts a project for yours truly!
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, May 22 2017
"Hi All,

The second piece is also a commission piece for Shawn and it will be a AT-AT head and partial neck dio where the AT-AT has been hit and it has gone down and there will be smoke and flames coming from it.

The head is done so far using foam board and once I get the look I want it will be then covered in plastic and cardboard

Ron"

Oh yeah, you know I am gonna love this one!



Ron Hembling starts Boba Project...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, May 22 2017
"Hi All,

I have multiple pieces going on at the moment but I'll show two at this stage. The first one is a WIP commission piece and it's Boba Fett.

Fett is from Bandai and has been built straight out of the box and I will be adding the flamer unit which is the ROTJ version using plastic card. I glued the joints and then covered them over and will need to do some sanding on the joints.

The base is built up using balsa wood and then I used spakfilla to cover it and while it was drying I got a wet baby wipe and lightly pressed into the spakfilla to give it a more natural look.

Ron"

Oh yeah, this is gonna be good.



Panther does some window work in Gotham...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, May 22 2017
"Update!

Before I carry on working on the roof, I thought it was about time I turned my hand to making the windows.

I cut out 6 pieces from the plastic sheet, then using bolsa wood I made front and back window frames. Once completed I stuck them into place with hot glue.

Next job is to do the bottom two windows and putting the second coat of paint on the roof."

They sure do look real to me!
