  1. SBY 2202 1/1000 Andromeda

    Great work on this so far. I too have mixed feelings about this design, but it's kinda cool!
  2. SPACESHIPS!!! Time for some SBY goodies

    This is going to be great! Thanks for posting!
  3. Thanks! A better modeller could actually do some very cool things with it. I'd like to see it in a drydock in the bat cave, with Bruce Wayne working on it. But that's beyond my meagre diorama skills! I'm working on a 1989 Batwing (or Batplane, or whatever it's called). I just finished a 1/1000 Yamamoto kit from Bandai that I'll post pics of soon.... Brad.
  4. 1951 Bel Air (birthday present for my daughter)

    Thanks Jerry! I've purchased a Moebius Hudson Convertible for her next!
  5. Here's my take on the recent Round 2 Reissue of the Batboat from 1992's "Batman Returns." I wanted to do a gloss coat, but I couldn't just get a uniform gloss every on the hull. I finally gave up and went with a semi-gloss. I stripped the chrome parts and redid them with AlClad chrome. The worst part of an otherwise simple build was the seam between the top and the bottom, but with filler and a lot of sanding, I took care of that. I suppose I should add some weathering, but for now, I'll leave it as is! The last pic is with the backdrop that Round 2 supplies with the kit. Comments are welcome!
  6. Here's something I recently finished for our 16 year old daughter. It's Round 2's reissue of the AMT 1951 Bel Air. She chose the colours of both the exterior and interior. I haven't built a car model in a long time (not counting the 1989 Batmobile I recently built). It's quite a departure from my usual fare... The main body was done with Tamiya spray cans. It was also the first time I tried Bare-Metal Foil. Man, am I sold on that stuff! I have a new appreciation for model car builders. I lost track of how many times I had to polish the body. It's still not perfect! But... my daughter is happy with how it turned out! And she also like the case I bought for it!
  7. Thanks Bill. For Iron Man 3, Dragon did kits and pre-paints. The kits are quite good. I haven't built the Moebius kits, but I own them, and in my opinion, the Dragon kits are better! That said, the Moebius Mark VI is better than the earlier kits.
  8. Yes, if you want to do it yourself, definitely don't get the pre-paint. And lighting this kit is super-easy!
  9. Thanks both of you. I really enjoyed the Dragon Iron Man models! I'm starting another one and will post when it's finished! Brad.
  10. And now images work again. Migrated to Flickr and see ya later Photobucket.
  11. Sith Interceptor

    This is very cool! Well done!
  12. 1989 Batmobile build

    Thanks all!
  13. AMT Batmissile from Batman Returns (1992)

    Thanks for the comments. You can see the Batmissile at the end of this clip. It doesn't have much screen time. :-)
