Panther almost there...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, September 22 2017
"Having a little spare time I have managed to fix the Tiger Claw swords to their backing boards and mounted them on the back wall. I have painted the sword handles and applied another coat of black gloss to the sword rack.

Hopefully by the time I get home from work this evening I will be able to fix the swords to rack, take final photos over the weekend and call this project finished."

What a great project. And he said this was just a kind of test bed for a new project!

Ron Hembling finishes his AT-AT Down Diorama...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, September 21 2017
"Hi All,

Here are the usual outdoor pics for the AT-AT head dio and also one with the lights down and the flames on.


I know I am way biased when it comes to the subject matter on this one, but this might just be his best project ever and you know that is saying something. It is just over the top awesome! Here are some of his FB Galleries to finish it off:

Ron Hembling starts new Indy Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, September 21 2017
"Hi All,

Start of a new commission for a mate in Canada who runs and owns the Ravenwood Museum and here is an interview with Les the owner. Start the video at 10.57 and that is the start of the interview.

This will be a 1:6 scale boulder chase dio something similar to the 1:35 scale one I did a few years.

So far the frame work is high density foam and I will be starting on the boulder and cave structure tomorrow.


This is gonna be another great one as I can already see!

Thank the Maker featured on the THEFWOOSH...

I saw this on our Facebook Page this morning!

Ron Hembling is making my week!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 20 2017
"Hi All,

I have added the snow by watering down spakfilla until it is like a pancake consistency and then applied it to the base.

The snow on the AT-AT was done using a small brush and then using a almost dried out baby wipe and dabbing into the spakfilla and then dabbing it over the AT-AT head.


To say I am loving this is probably the understatement of the week. He has also shared some great work on the 6" AT-AT Driver too. Once again I am including his awesome FB Galleries:

Panther is showing us some great molding!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 20 2017
"Last night was all about casting katana's and tiger claw swords. I now have 4 of each, which I'll paint up and fix the katana's into the sword rack and the tiger swords to a piece of wood each, which will then be mounted to the back wall, either side of the Shinto shrine.

You can see that Slice and Dice both approve of the tiger claws swords!"

He is really getting good at that!

Legion078 gets into the Battle Droid, literally!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 20 2017
"FialaFernbrugg and I talked about our next plans for future customs the other day. He told me it would be nice to see a well painted Battle Droid next! Commander Vaks was actually next on my list! Luckily I got enough time to work on both over the last couple days! This is going to be a bigger post so I will try to arrange everything as clear as possible."

Folks, aside from just a great custom project, L78 has created one of the best resources on this character and its offerings I have ever seen. It is definitely worth a read. Thanks for putting all this together and sharing it Legion078!

Talonreap has more custom Clones!

"Today I have a CW trooper again. He's an AT TE Gunner from the Season 3 arc 'Padawan Lost', and he's a gunner with the 104th at the Battle of Felucia. The base figure is an AT TE Gunner I got loose of Ebay a few years ago, the one without the green triangle variant on the helmet. I used Mechanicus Standard Grey, Mephiston Red, and Chaos White. I included a reference picture for him as well due to the character's obscurity. The eyes on the helmet were tough, but I'm satisfied enough for the moment."

I can't imagine painting that fine of a detail.

Foxtrot Delta shows us some Action Man Cardbacks...

These are really nice!

His Cantina Sets are really looking nice. 3D Printing sure does seem the wave of the future. I gotta wonder when we will just switch over to that full time!

Toys R Us declares bankruptcy...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, September 19 2017
"Toys R Us, facing imminent deadlines to pay off hundreds of millions in debt, said Monday that it has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

The move comes on the cusp of the all-important holiday season, a period in which many retailers earn nearly half of their annual revenue, and a time of year that is particularly lucrative for the giant toy seller. The filing was long in the making."

Read the full story here. Glad that Ackbar set said in stock before I ordered!

Panther with a new Arishikage Dojo Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, September 19 2017
"Last night the second coat of paint was applied to walls.

Using Blu Stuff I made molds of 2 weapons to be used as wall hangings, the swords will be used in the rack. Making up the mixture, poured it into the molds and waited for them to start to cure."

Looks good to me and his molded weapons fit the bill!
