Ron Hembling starts an Imperial Rocket Trooper!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, November 22 2017
"Hi All,

I took a few days off after the last dio build and have been playing Star Wars BF2 and have been really enjoying it. So saying that I decided I would start a 1:12 build of the Imperial Rocket Trooper from SW BF2.

I have used a Bandai Storm Trooper and covered the joints with black stockings and added the raised part in the middle of the helmet using plastic card and putty.

The rifle is a mix of Hasbro's BS Storm Trooper and Sandtrooper weapons eith parts also used from Bandai weapons and plastic card.

The rocket launcher so far is made using plastic tube and plastic strips and the trigger is is from a Bandai E-11 blaster and the tubes and chest controls are from the Hasbro BS Tie Pilot.

The base I'll be doing is a Tatooine one as that is the only time I play the Rocket Trooper as there is so many roof tops in the new game to hide on.


Yepper, that new BF2 is rubbing off in a good way on Ron!

Ron Hembling starts a new project...

"Hi All,

Here is another little project I'm doing using a 1/144 Gundam Grimoire kit and making it into a mech suit. I have seen a few people do this and thought it was a great idea so thought I would give it a go.

The helmet is from a Figma racing driver which fits in perfectly with the mech suit, the whole figure is roughly 5" tall so it is about 1:16-1:15 scale and the weapon is from the Bandai Shore Trooper ans I removed the butt.

I haven't decided on a colour scheme yet but I will be having him hiding from a drone so the enemy don't catch up with him


This is gonna rock!

Starchaser is back with an update...

"Its been since March that I posted a picture of a new figure. And... it's been since March that I've had the time to build anything at all (that's eight months!). I finally had time to put together a figure that should have been made back in the EU days by Hasbro.

Winter (a.k.a. Targeter):"

Wow, I like her!

Jaeger45 back with an update...

"I wasn't super excited about the lack of porg population and diversity found in The Last Jedi line. So, I got to casting and modding...

Ahch-To needs a colony, after all! A few dozen porg and an aquarium decoration later...

Luke and a quick SA Rey round out the scene."

Now that is great!

Dag Marus shows more Hoth Dio!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, November 22 2017
"I did a little more work tonight and threw in a few older Hoth Rebels. Now if I only had a bunch of extra, old Snowtroopers to give him."

Now this is one great gift!

"Over the weekend, I have applied a second coat of paint to the exterior and interior. This was quickly followed by a coat of dark burnt umber for the wood work, both floors and supports.

For the roof, I cut a piece of black foam board, removed the top layer of card and glued it to top of the roof. Texture of the black foam board, painted black works as both texture for the roof and another layer to child proof the set.
With the pavement I sprayed a coat of white, then while wet I sprayed a coat of black paint. Another coat of grey is needed to cover the blacker areas."

Now that is nice!

JDeck is back with a Stormtrooper Field Marshall...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, November 22 2017
"I made my "head canon" interpretation of a Stormtrooper Corps Field Marshall. Its just the officer from the KMART exclusive scan crew. With a GI JOE Flint head. I used the armor from the TVC ATAT commander. I painted the peices gloss black with a smoke clear coat. I wanted to make something reminiscent of the Waffen SS commanders black parade uniform."

I like it!

The Boo finishes his Tyderium!

"Ok, all done!

Got it all buttoned up, weathered and mounted on the stand (which is an old record turntable, painted and weathered)
Not sure what the next project is gonna be, I might do another B-Wing, it's been years since i did one, and I've learned a lot since then. Who knows, we'll see."

Uh, wow!

Science and Star Wars: Boba Fett's Amor Gets Torched...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, November 22 2017
"Hi Shawn,

Lucasfilm and Disney today released a new episode of Science and Star Wars on the science of Boba Fett. In this week’s video, the actor who plays Boba Fett, Daniel Logan, joins the show to test the bounty hunter’s armor against stabbing knives, a 2-watt blue laser diode and an arm-mounted flamethrower.

WATCH: Daniel Logan Uses Arm-Mounted Flamethrower To Test Strength of Boba Fett’s Armor

As the Star Wars universe’s most famous bounty hunter, Boba Fett has an armored chest plate, a back-mounted jet pack, wrist gauntlets housing a fiber cord whip, and a mounted blaster and a mini-flamethrower. Watch what happens when the actor who played young Boba Fett in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones tests a recreation of Boba Fett’s armor, a 5.5 Kevlar vest — whose tensile strength makes it 5x stronger than steel — against Star Wars-level weaponry."

Pretty cool show if you ask me!

"When I was a kid, I would watch those toy commercials where these kids got to play in these scaled, cool environments and I always wanted that. Well, I have a nephew now who's a massive Star Wars fan and experience in diorama building...so this is his Xmas gift."

How come I couldn't get an uncle like this when I was a kid? Wow!

Panther sends in an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, November 18 2017
"Last night was time to work on the pavement surrounding this building. Cutting out a piece of foam board, marking out where the building will sit on board. I marked out the curb and pavement slabs which run across the front of the building. Either side of the building I want it to look like a concrete alleyways.

Still need to add second coats of paint to building and paint the pavement."

Talk about looking fantastic!
