RCW Creations close to finishing his Teletraan I Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, November 26 2020

"I have completed the painting of Teletraan and the two consoles, applied a few decals on the monitors and Iím currently looking for the perfect image to place on Teletraan centre screen. Do I go G1 cartoon, from a comic, add a grid or a huge Autobot insignia?"

I think I am thinking Autobot insignia myself. Wow, this looks good!

Ron Hembling shares a WarHammer 40K Custom Project...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, November 25 2020

"Hi All,

Space Wolves - Grey Hunter 7.5" scale.

Recipe.

Figure - is from Mcfarlane and was originally an Ultramarine and I repainted and weathered him using Vallejo and GW paints and the images on the shoulder pads and right knee pad were hand drawn on using a led pencil.

The fur is fake fur repainted brown and then lightly dry brushed with medium grey and the light grey, the purity seals are done using high density foam and an old hanky and the rune stones and teeth were made using high density foam.

Base - was from an old 1:12 dewback resin kit and I just painted and weathered it and the snow was done by using watered down spakfilla.

Ron"

Ron just makes stuff look real. Period. What more can I say about his work over the years?



RC-1136 shares a work in progress...

He has created one awesome Egg Basket from one of the latest episodes of the Mandalorian. Customizers never cease to amaze me.



RCW Creations almost finished with his Teletraan I Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, November 25 2020

"Almost there with this Transformers diorama, I needed to test it out!"

This diorama is more than meets the eye! Ok, I know that was an awful pun, but the diorama is sure awesome. Make sure you scroll around and see the little Shockwave too.



Lenny Quinn sends in an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, November 23 2020

"Not sure if this is common knowledge, but it was a new to me. I've been experimenting with painting figures for a more vintage/retro look and I discovered that if you turn Ketwol's head around you get Melas..."

Well now that is interesting!



RCW Creations shares a final and a continuation dio update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, November 23 2020

"Final pictures of G.I.JOE Armoury commission are now live on my website

Painting is underway in the Ark, I've mixed up a bright orange with I am applying two coats because the first coat is too dark. Teletraan and the consoles are also having their second coat added, the first coat I used a new air brush paint which would be fine to use as a second coat but not a first. The paint was too thin for the foam.

When this dries, a second coat will be applied to the back wall and floor and then again to the consoles and Teletraan."

It is all looking great.




Don shares some great droid customs...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, November 23 2020

"Spent some time late night weathering these two."

They look great!

RCW Creations shares new Teletraan I Dio images...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, November 22 2020

"I've completed the engraving on the foam consoles, made a couple of wall mounted monitors and a small Soundwave who can sit on top of the consoles and Teletraan.

The next step is to add some plastic card buttons before I give this all a black undercoat."

It is really looking great to me.



So what did you think about the new episode?
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, November 21 2020

So we saw a new episode of the Mandalorian last night and man did I think it was awesome. I don't want to give to much away here, but please click on through and leave us your thoughts on this new episode that was heavily inundated with Imperials this time out!

-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, November 21 2020

"From the Mandalorian

A few more vintage..."

Definitely look to see all of his great vintage customs as that was just a taste.




RCW Creations shares a Teletraan I Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, November 21 2020

"I've made a second smaller but higher console to be placed the other side to Teletraan. The hot glue melted some of the foam which I have filled using liquid Green Stuff, when it's dry I'll sand it down and start adding detail to them both.

I'm just wondering which way round they should go?"

Click through and let him know what you think.



Mauldalorian shares a wall mount dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, November 20 2020

"Been a while friends!

Here is my latest Nevarro diorama that also works as a wallmount

The base was a spare box that i coated in resin, then sprinkled dirt over the surfaces. I then coated a layer of black spray paint, then another layer of khaki.

I then glued the 3D printed base I made from before with hot glue, sprinkled more dirt in between the seams, then sprayed some more khaki spray paint for a weathering effect on the door/walls themselves and to glue all the loose dirt together!

Hope you all like it!"

Like it? I love it!



RCW Creations shares a diorama update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, November 20 2020

"Final internal touches, external walls just need a coat of black and this will be complete."

Talk about one awesome dio. These finishing touches are really pushing it over the edge.

He also has a great update to his Teletraan I dio.



Dan shares custom news...

Looks like someone gave that great Baby Yoda Toy some Beskar armour. I like it!

You know we have to see him training the child sometime in the near future.

RCW Creation updates us on his Teletraan I Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, November 19 2020

"The walls have been etched and applied magnetic tape to walls, Iíve done this incase I want to extend diorama by adding another floor piece and back wall.

The next phase is to make the consoles to sit either side of Teletraan."

Talk about looking like what I remember from the 80's cartoon!



RC-1136 shares an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, November 18 2020

"Amazing how a simple wash dramatically improves this figure in a big way."

Wow, I can sure echo that!



Don shares a new custom Mando...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, November 18 2020

"Ancient Mandalorian, Mand'alor Crusader and Old Republic Jedi hunter. Early example of beskar armor. And this custom 3.75 figure is on eBay.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/233785053732"

Now he looks pretty rough and tough to me!
