Izzy Mel 45 shares new Speeder Images...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, January 15 2018
"Here is my Void Spider Speeder prototype. Still working on the internal design (cockpit). and this needs to be painted."

Talk about one talented customizer. His projects are always epic.



Panther back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, January 15 2018
"I set to work on the rock columns. Using modroc plaster of Paris strips to cover the kitchen foil and joining them onto the top of each pillar. The steps were also covered as well to add texture to the stone steps.

My next step is to add a second layer to he base because the weight of the filler and modroc will break the foam board of lifted incorrectly. Then another layer of filler to be added to the rock wall."

He is definitely making good progress.



Rodger hints are more projects...

Dan shares news on new Jurassic World Line...

I found this on our Facebook Page this morning. Man, looks like the are really upping their game on their action figures. Lots of arty from what I can tell.

He has posted info in the forums too.



Dan "The Spectre" Kosa is back with a new Rampage Review...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, January 14 2018
"Rampage: The Movie" Canister Contact Ralph Review:

This set contains Ralph (a soon to be mutated wolf), a quad missile launcher with 4 removable silver missiles (recycled from "The Corps!"), a 2POA figure with a rifle (also recycled from "The Corps!"), a dark silver canister and 2 different styled gold barricades.

Ralph is the real star of this set. He is made from solid heavy vinyl similar to Schleich products and has 5 points of articulation- 4 swivel hips and a hinged jaw.

The quad missile launcher is a welcome addition to this set as I have been waiting for Lanard to reissue this piece for almost a decade. I plan on getting 5 more of this set just for the missile launchers."

Talk about fun all over the place with this movie and Toy Sets!



Dan "The Spectre" Kosa is back with a Rampage Review...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, January 14 2018
"Rampage: The Movie" Canister Contact Lizzie Review:

This set contains Lizzie (a soon to be mutated alligator), a small boat (reused from previous "The Corps!" and "Kong: Skull Island" lines), an action figure (reused from "The Corps!"), some dark silver accessories and some gold accessories.

The real star of the set is Lizzie herself. Lizzie is made from solid, heavy vinyl and feels like a Schleich item. She only has one point of articulation- a hinged upper jaw, but her dynamic sculpt, pose and paint apps more than make up for her lack of articulation."

Trust me that is just the start of his great review.



Rodger is back with a Sandcrawler Workshop Update!

Ron Hembling escapes Hoth!
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, January 13 2018
"Hi All,

Did a little Falcon dio between commissions. This depicts the Falcon escaping Hoth.

Falcon - is from Bandai and is the mini one and it was painted and weathered using Vallejo Paints and Pastel chalks.

Base - I got from the craft store and the mountains/rocks are foam just pulled apart and then watered down spakfilla was used to cover them.

I then painted and dry brushed them using Vallejo Paints and then I added the snow by watering down spakilla till in was a pancake consistency and then applied it with a brush.

Ron"

Now that looks fantastic!



Ron Hembling starts a new Star Wars Project...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, January 13 2018
"Hi All,

As some of you know I have been wanting to do a 1:12 Death Star dio with 6 - 7 levels with different scene's from ANH. The problem I have is to do 6 - 7 levels it will cost a small fortune to buy walls or get them printed 3D or laser cut on MDF.

I mate of mine has a set of GTP Toys DS walls and he took a few photo's and printed them off and sent them to me. Now I'll admit that I wasn't a fan of printed walls but I took 2 hours tonight and put this little dio together and I was very surprised how it looks.(Good Surprised)

What are your thoughts on the printed walls guys/gals?

Ron"

They sure do look awesome to me!



Fiala Fernbrugg is back with a new model build...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, January 13 2018
"UT-60D U-Wing

The UT-60D U-wing starfighter/support craft also known as the UT-60D, or U-wing, was a transport/gunship model manufactured by Incom Corporation and used by the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War.
[wookieepedia: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/UT-60D_U-wing_starfighter/support_craft]

A big thank you goes to Philipp (legion078) who gave me the washes I used for the weathering of the U-Wing

Manufacturer: Revell (https://www.revell.de/en/products/star-wars/star-wars-rogue-one/id/06755.html)
Scale: ~ 1/100
No. of parts: 35
Lights and sound module with batteries is included.

Weathering:

I used different washes to create a weathering effect. I also tried the chipping technique (old sponge with a little bit of paint) on some areas.

Some panels were painted in a different color to get the typical "rebel ship look". The engine block was repainted with a dark bronze color and dry-brushed. The cooling fins for the engine are made of cardboard.

I hope you like it."

I know I sure do!

While trying to decide who would suit this diorama I placed ‘66 Batman and Robin to fill the void which works very well, especially when I placed the Joker at the window looking in.

Hope you you enjoy the pictures."

Ron Hembling back with more Thunderbirds work...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, January 9 2018
"Hi All,

I'm on a bit of a Thunderbird run at the moment and decided to do another simple display.

This one is TB3 from the new Thunderbirds are go series, it is the toy from Vivid and I did a complete repaint and wash to it using Vallejo Paints.

The base is from AOSHIMA TB 1 Launch Bay 1/350 kit, as I wasn't going to need it I used it for this little project. The base was painted with Vallejo Paints, the smoke is cotton wool pulled apart and glued in place.

Ron"

The paint job looks awesome on this one!

For all of that I had to spend a lot of time, but after finished it I found time again for customizing new action figures and I want to show you my latest Sith Lord. I hope you enjoy it.

Greetings Talon"

I really like the colors on this one!



Panther updates us on latest dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, January 9 2018
"I went over the white walls with a light grey wash. While that was drying I took some scrap foam and constructed a small bookcase with books, which meets The Flashes approval.

Once the walls are dry I will add darker dry washes over the walls, paint the bookcase and books, before gluing the walls onto the base."

He is really making great progress on this one.

This new little diorama is scaled to 6 inch action figure. Made from foam board I’ve cut to walls and marked brick on both sides, cut a window on the larger wall. The floor is another piece of foam board, with bolsa wood stuck to it. The wood I will mark out floor boards and score the brick work into the walls."

New work from Ron Hembling...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, January 7 2018
"Hi All,

Another update on the Thunderbird excavator dio.

The excavator is now complete and it felt like it was missing something so I added thin plastic rod on both side and also added hydraulic hoses to the back of the arms.

The base is high density foam and cut to shape and the cliff face I just ripped apart foam with my finger and then glued them in place.

I the glued the excavator in place and with the left over small pieces of foam I glued them to the dozer section of the excavator and glued them tight against the grinder so it looks like it is starting to smash the rocks up.

The mine shaft support beams are pieces of balsa wood cut and glued inplace and once this was done the cliff face, rocks and ground were covered with spakfilla.

I have started painting the cliff face and rocks using Vallejo Paints as was the excavator and then I will start weathering them with pastel chalks.

Ron"

Ron is in extreme mode as you can see!

Coruscant Cantina Customs is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, January 6 2018
"Chatz “Max” Kseeboe was a Rodian assassin who had an aptitude for poisoning his targets. Max’s main clients were those involved in politics who wanted their political adversaries eliminated. He had a penchant for Sabacc, and frequented cantinas in Coruscant’s lower levels. It was in one of these seedy establishments that he first encountered Aa’ Shachen. He quickly took interest in the young Twi’lek and decided to mentor her. Max was a very successful assassin, and was never convicted of murder. He was, however, eventually imprisoned for tax evasion because he wasn’t very good at managing his finances.

I painted the armor on the Anakin torso so that the color better matched that of the loki arms. I also weathered the pants with bronze paint. Oddly, the Doda Bodonawieedo head was cast in brown despite being painted entirely green, so I had to mix the same color green to paint the base of the head after dremeling out the socket for the ball joint."

I like that recipe!



Ron Hembling is already back at work on a new Thunderbirds Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, January 6 2018
"Hi All,

Another TB dio in the works.

This excavator is from IMAI and is an old kit which needs alot of work especially the seams etc. This vehicle wasn't in the TV show but did show up in TB comics.

I removed the cockpit section and replaced it with plastic card and I made the chair with plastic card and added decals for the spare decals I have.

The figures were 1/72 scale German figures from Prieser and I sanded the uniforms and made the belts and shoulder section using paper. The holsters are also from the same figure kit and the cartridge holders on the left are done with thin plastic rod.

Ron"

I am liking this TB Work.

Ron Hembling goes underwater on us...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, January 4 2018
"Hi All,

Last update for the night.

Pic's 1 and 2 have had the glass covered with a 70/30 mix of Woodland Scenics Realistic water 70% and Light Green Artist Paint 30% and once mixed it was spread over the glass and left to dry.

Pic 3 shows what the mix looks like underneath and Pic 4 shows how the scenery now has a very light green auroa from the mix.

Pic's 5, 6 and 7 shows the water now with Woodland Scenics Water Effects covering it. It's a little hard to see but the water has very small waves to match the scale of the TB's, I did this by spreading the Water Effects over the first mix and while drying I got a damp baby wipe and starting dapping on a angle towards the large land mass.

Once the Water Effects dries it will be clear and then I will give the waves a very light dry brush of white to bring out the waves. The road has had the lines painted on then a wash of matt black was done to tone down the grey.

Ron"

The look the painted glass gives for an underwater effect is just crazy good!

Ron Hembling back with a new Thunderbirds Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, January 3 2018
"Hi All,

More work done on the TB diorama.

I have added two different types of seaweed to the ocean floor. The tall thin seaweed is dried roots painted a light green and glued on with PVA glue and the small grassy looking seaweed is static grass Dark Green from Woodland Scenics.

I got some non stick cooking paper and dapped PVA around in different sizes and sprinkled the static grass over the glue. I then took the non stick cooking paper out side and blew across the paper to make the static grass standup and once the PVA glue dried I pulled the grass/seaweed off and glued them to the base.

Ron"

This is really looking awesome.

May I present my Rogue One Rebel SpecForce Commando:

-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, January 2 2018
"Morning all. This morning I brushed off some of the excess sand. I painted the border with a black acrylic, then heated up my glue gun sticking down the wall and pillar to the base.

While the base is still drying, I had to put it together to see how it looks. When it is completely dry I will do my usual final pictures.

I have finally managed to do the completed photo's of the Alleyway.

I hope you like them!"

Both projects are fantastic. I really am gonna have to get back into some of those old Star Trek Episodes.




Ron Hembling back with more Thunderbirds work...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, January 2 2018
"Hi All,

I did more work on the TB diorama.

I have built and painted the Jet Bomber plane using Vallejo paints and added decals from left over spare ones. The Bomber was made using plastic card and I then ripped the right back wing off to simulate it hitting the tower.

The comms tower was painted using Vallejo Paints and then I used a pair of cutters to destroy where the bomber had it.

The mountians and ground work were given washes of different browns and then a wash of medium grey. I gave the ocean floor a few washes of Vallejo Iraqui Sand and The road to the Comms Tower had been given it's first coat and I still need to weather it and add the lines.

The bushes are from Army Painter and the tree's and small shrubs are from Woodland Scenics.

Ron"

Fiala Fernbrugg shares new Trooper...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, January 1 2018
"IMPERIAL SHOCK TROOPER

Imperial shock troopers were high-class stormtroopers pulled from the Stormtrooper Corps of the Galactic Empire. They served as elite frontline forces of the Empire, and also as bodyguards for Emperor Palpatine himself. They were the successors to the clone shock troopers who were part of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. [wookieepedia: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Imperial_shock_trooper]

The figure is a modified and repainted "5 points of articulation" Rogue One Stormtrooper. The detailing of the figure is really good but the missing articulation in the elbows is a real disappointment. I changed the position of the forearms with wire and putty.

I used Revell flame red silk-matt (330) = RAL 3000 for the repaint. For the weathering I used the Revell weathering set pigments.

My last custom figure for 2017. I would like to thank for your support and your comments this year. I wish you all a Happy New Year."

Now that is the way to get the new year started right!
