Leopard Gecko

This is one of the stranger things I've done. It's a paper craft model of a leopard gecko, however instead of using paper I've used  plasticard. You can thank my niece for this particular project.

Modifying RISK speeders

I should have quite frankly uploaded this three months ago but I've been a lazy bugger. Anyway, here's how I re-purposed a bunch of  air speeders from a RISK board game into models fit for an X-wing battlefield.

Commission: Arquitens-class light cruiser Mk1 - Improved

And it's time for another scratch built Arquitens! This is the third ship of this type I've built and while it's getting easier for each model I complete, it's still a huge investment in time and effort.

X-wing: Ground Assault

Ever since Star Wars: X-wing miniatures game appeared on the market, people have dreamed of a ground wars version. Here's my contribution to that dream.

Painting a CT-900 'StarScavenger'

While painting the CT-900 wasn't quite as difficult as building the ship, it certainly provided it own set of challenges. After all, trying to match the colour scheme of a Lego model to a scratch built 'scale' model can be quite tricky.

Building a CT-900

So how do you go about transforming a Lego kit into a 'real life' Star Wars model. Well it's not the easiest task I've ever undertaken but somehow it seems I've come out of the ordeal with flying colours. And I also managed to produce a pretty kick ass model too boot!

Commission: CT-900 'StarScavenger'

Here's likely a world first; A CT-900 freighter known as the 'StarScavenger'. Never heard or seen the model before? That's because it normally only exists in Lego form!

Prime Battlewalker

I aten't dead! Yeah, it's almost been three months since the last post but I've been pretty damned busy lately. Some of it I can't even talk about yet! However I can talk about this model.

Admiral Zaarin Tie Advanced V1

The new (8th) edition of Warhammer 40k has demanded quite a lot of my attention lately. Updating and adding some new stuff to one of my armies in preparation for a big tournament takes time! However I've still managed to sneak in some X-wing painting.

Building a Phantom shuttle with folded wings

Sometimes you just have to discard an idea before it takes up too much of your time. In the case of the Phantom shuttle I recently modified, this was very much the case.
