  1. Mine finally arrived. Truly a work of art. I never thought I could say $500 on a model was well spent, but the time and effort to recreate this beast at over 3 feet might justify the expense. It's a once in a lifetime thing for me. Thanks Randy! Randy's Blog with Imperial Star Destroyer
  2. i guess the detail is all relative... it is frickin huge!
  3. PERFECT! Thanks... I already have the pegboard, so a couple of those inexpensive magnetic strips would be perfect.
  4. Thanks... but I was looking for something that can create space on my desk. Besides those tool caddies often can't handle my larger tools.
  5. I'm looking to clean up my workbench area. Tools are strewn everywhere. When I clean up and put everything in my tool box, things are not easily accessible (I have to dig to find stuff). Is there a table top solution to store hand tools like pliers, picks, tweezers, glues, puttys, sanding sticks, screwdrivers, sculpting tools, etc.? Ideally, I'd like something that I could wall mount so I can maximize my work space.
  6. $585 now. Believe it or not, price of resin is through the roof. Shipping and casting this thing is expensive.
  7. There are several metal templates I use. I tape them down and scribe: http://www.starshipmodeler.biz/index.cfm?f...;Product_ID=144
  8. Magic Sculp flakes too much. I would use Aves Apoxy Sculpt any day of the week over Magic Sculp. It's also easier to use than Magic Sculp.
  9. Believe it or not, the price is about right. When you take into consideration the man hours to make the master, the materials, the time to make the molds, the time to cast, the shipping cost, the shipping materials, etc.... it's about right. Garage kitters like Randy don't make a ton of money on these. He'll probably sell about 20 (if that) and will make a small amount of profit per hour of labor. He (and most resin garage kitters in sci-fi world) do it out of the love of the subject. He did a great Blockade Runner from Episode IV and a Radiant from Episode 1. The guy makes a great garage kit.
  10. This option is not only cheaper, but has a smaller light box than those Xmas trees I've seen.
  11. I thought more electronics newbs would be interested in this.
  12. Just thought I'd pass this on. I picked up this pre-wired fiber optic bundle (50 strands). You apparently can cut each 2 foot strand to the length you want. I'm hopeful this will be a nice solution for the electrically impaired. http://www.nationalartcraft.com/subcategor...6&scid=1446
  13. there is no comparison. The thinness and consistently straight edge are great for masking. The tack is just tacky enough to not pull up paint most times (if applied correctly over primer), whereas masking tape can be a little too tacky in my opinion. I swear by my Tamiya tape.
  14. I got the Eclipse HP-CR... very pleased.
  15. Got mine from Starshipmodeler.com. Boy do they ship fast! Good price too. What a wonderful model.
  16. I could understand all the fuss if it was the Cleveland Browns... but the Colts? hmmph.
  17. I normally airbrush Tamiya acrylics, so I have the Tamiya thinner. Thanks very much! I have my Y-wing all primed and ready to go... here's the paint job I'm going for that was done with Polyscale paints... http://www.starshipbuilder.com/forums/atta...mp;d=1142304970
  18. Is Polyscale sprayable out of the bottle or do you have to thin it? If so, is Windex acceptable to thin it? THANKS!
  19. I've seen some Blue Moon Y-wings (old SMT master) on Ebay since the announcement. People are still trying to get $200 for them. I have one... I don't think you could expect to get any more than $150. It is 1/48th and accurate enough. I'd hold on to yours.
  20. Do you know something we don't?!? I'd absolutely love a republic gunship (LAAT/i). I want to paint one with the tiger mouth just like in the Clone Wars animated series. Also, deepstriker... it is starshipmodeler.com... not spaceshipmodeler. There is also another website called starshipbuilder.com.... another good website. The definitive source for data on this stuff is starshipmodeler.com and the Replica Prop Forum. The RPF has some guys on it that can name pretty much every piece on most Star Wars kits. They have threads that are like 60 pages that are dedicated to identifying kit parts tha
  21. If you guys are interested in a Y-wing, might I recommend buying it from Starshipmodeler.com? They have excellent service, quick delivery and the cost should be about the same as importing it from HLJ. They have a pre-order for the Y-wing set up now. http://www.starshipmodeler.com/cfstore/ind...;Product_ID=944
