    1/48 Finemolds Tie Fighter

    Hi ARC, I've painted up the interior and the pilot. Just a simple wash and a little dry brushing. I'm not sure what those black and red panels are but they are made up of 4 decals per side. Installed, I think they look kinda weird. View from the top. With the hatch off, I can still get some light for the shot. I doubt you'll be able to see much once everything is buttoned up. Thanks for looking -co

    Dirigible Aerial Landing Platform

    Nice job Els! How'd you do the texture on the base colors? They add a lot of visual interest. -co

    3D printed 1/6th & 1/12th CSM RCS

    Nice job Pete. Fantastic demo of the potential of the technology for our hobby. I have an FDM printer but that can't get anywhere close to what you have achieved. I may have to look into SLA soon. -co

    Really nice finish! After seeing your nice collection, I tried getting some on a recent trip to Tokyo but they were all sold out! -co

    1/48 Finemolds Tie Fighter

    Lol! It is! No complaints at all. Detail is great and everything fits together well. The plastic reminds me of Tamiya, super easy to work with. -co

    1/48 Finemolds Tie Fighter

    Hi all, I thought I could join in the fun with a 1/48 Finemolds Tie Fighter. This kit has be sitting in my stash since 2014. It'll be my first Star Wars build. The box and it's contents. Instructions and the few sprues. (Finemolds did include double the sprues in the first pic to make the 2 solar panel / wing thingys) Here I've cleaned up the parts and given them a scrub with soap and water. I wasn't too keen on the included display stand. It seemed a little clunky and so I've filled in some locating tabs and drilled a hole to accept a transparent acrylic rod. Not too many parts in this one. I've started gluing bits together into subassemblies. Hopefully this will go quickly. Thanks for looking! -co

    What I plan on building, That aint real GB

    Hi all! Now that I've just finished with my last shelf of doom project, I'll join in the fun with a 1/48 Finemolds Tie Fighter. -co
  13. Hello everyone! I'm very happy to have finally finished this kit. It only took me 11 years. 😅 The decals were the most frustrating part of the experience. Thick and brittle, they fought me all the way. Here she is, my very last project from my shelf of doom. No more half built kits from now on! Or so I hope. Thanks for stopping by folks! -co
