Remember JDeck's spray bottle parts?
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, March 1 2021

"I figured out what I wanted to make. I decided on a Cafe Speeder. Kind of a small dieselpunk style speeder. It's basic construction is made from spray bottle parts and a vallejo bottle. Even the seat is the spray bottle trigger, and it works great for a two seater. I still need to make the handles and foot controls, but I got tired."

He has since added said handles and is almost finished with this. Hard to believe this is just spray bottle parts he got at dollar tree!



Mr. BMB shares a new build...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, March 1 2021

"Star Wars Bandai - 1/144 Vehicle Model 017 X-Wing Fighter Star Wars :The Rise of Skywalker"

Looks like a nice build to me!



Dan shares word about Halo Infinite Line...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, March 1 2021

"Jazwares/Wicked Cool Toys "Halo" Covenant figures with McFarlane weapons:

They scale nicely save for the tiny plasma rifles (not McFarlane, but the original license holder whose name escapes me at the moment), but here they come off more like plasma sub machineguns which works for me!"

Click through to see the full offerings.



JDeck shares word on new paint product...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, February 28 2021
"I got the AK Interactive True Metal aluminum. It's a wax based metallic finish, that works with the plastic Hasbro uses. It has the consistency of oil based paint. You just apply it to whatever you want, then buff it out with a cloth, I use a cotton ball, and for small areas a Q-tip.

It makes a great shine. It's almost a mirror finish, not quite. It's somewhere between vac metal and the new metallic paint Hasbro uses.

Pictures Really don't do it justice. I guess that's why I was fooling with the camera and broke the whole page. Anyhows, heres the link

I liked it so much I ordered the Gold too."

Now this stuff seems awesome folks!




JDeck shares more wall work...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, February 28 2021

"I just used paint pens, and wrote random stuff. I'm sure with practice, you can make cool lettering and something much much better than I did. It's just trying to get the Aurebesh lettering right. I didn't want to get too fancy my first attempt.

Hey Starchaser, those Roblox accessories really did the trick. Now my punk kids are complete. The boombox is from the Mezco cockroach guy I used for that last figure I did.



Havoc Hobby shares more Mandos...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, February 28 2021

"and the last three that are printed have been painted. now I wait for the others."

These are great, all on their own mini-dios.



RCW Creations starts a new Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, February 28 2021

"Starting a new diorama, this piece will be a corridor in a temple or castle. It measures 11" x 30" x 9", it will be able to split into two separate pieces or kept as one piece."

He is making great progress on it already.



Havoc Hobby is back with a Mando Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, February 27 2021

"I'm back again for my once in a blue moon photo dump. This time I have a squad of Mandalorian Miniatures from DarkFireDesigns made for Star Wars Legion."

Wow, these look great!



Don shares a new custom...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, February 27 2021

"New (Instagram) pics of an older custom henchman."

You could definitely see him on the ole Sail Barge.



Fiala Fernbrugg is back with a new Bandai Model Build...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, February 27 2021

"Bandai Super Star Destroyer

I used these colours to paint the kit:
-Tamiya german grey TS-4 acrylic spray paint: for the superstructures
-Vallejo model wash for grey and dark vehicles: for the weathering
-Revell enamel paint grey matt 43 for the drybrushing
-Revell enamel paint metalic silver and light orange for the engines

The deatils on this small kit are phenomenal. Another wonderful Star Wars model kit from Bandai."

It really turned out awesome!



Don updates us on his Shelf Project...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, February 27 2021

"Here's the current progress. I should have time for some trim paint on the third level tomorrow. Forth level still needs a LOT of work.

I'm really excited about this!

I haven't posted this on social media yet; Shipyards debut!

Now that the 'Blue Level' trim is painted I can get started with the greebles and other stuff!

Jabba's job-board is on the wall!"

Now that looks great!




L-Jarvis is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, February 27 2021

"Another fortnite/Starwars remix"

And he also did another one that was more Mandalorian oriented. These FortNite figures really work well.

Princess Leia (X-Wing Pilot) 6" custom (based on Dark Horse Comics - 'In The Shadow Of Yavin')

Uses slightly repainted 6" TBS 56 Jaina Solo figure, helmet, belt, vest & harness. As Jaina is quite a tall figure, to make the figure a bit shorter I took a bit off the tops of the thighs and redid the sockets. Head from 6" TBS 75 Leia Hoth with added hair pieces - ponytail from DC Comics Designer Series 3 Raven."

She is stunning folks!
