Hello Again everyone.

I felt a little guilty that my kit wasn't as hard as some of the builds that are here, So I found something at Hobby Lobby that was on sale and built another little kit.

I'm not as good as Lain esp on the round parts but for my second metal art style kit. its not bad..

The Imperial Star Destroyer. This post is to show my work.. and let me tell you some of these pieces were tiny...

Great builds, Delbert! Remember to upload them to the gallery.

Great progress on the cabin. Very nice details - brings cool memories of the car in the movie.

Howdy Y'all
I'm trying to get closer to the finish line. I've used some rattlecan ModelMaster Dark Green on the base. I was going to add foliage to the base but that might be a project for another time if I don't do it for this campaign.

Take care,
Don "Lakota"

i know it's been a while since i last posted any info about the "Gonk" droid from star wars so here is a brief update, as you can see i'm finally onto the painting and weather side of things and i might just make this inside the deadline with a little luck.

this shot was taken just after i had given it a coat of citadel sealer paint.

Nice progress, guys.

We are now in the last stretch for this campaign. Little less than a month left.

Time to push through and get something finished

We can do a two week extension - would that work?

Anybody else finalizing their entries?

I would certainly appreciate an extension as well. It has been really tough to get much progress done on mine.

OK, let us extend the campaign until 1st February. That will allow progress over the christmas holidays and finishing touches through January.

I will check the campaign gallery on 1st February and award ribbons to all completed entries.

Looking forward to see progress over the next 6 weeks or so.

Well here is its, the Star Wars Gonk droid!

unlike those astromecs, they don't get to swan around the galaxy on the back of an x-wing fighter but instead do all the mundane work like providing power to ground crews to help them repair ships and computer... never seeing any of the glory that the other droids do.

and so here is my rendition of an under loved power droid or gonk droid. he's painted in an off white colour which would have acted as camouflage back the planet Hoth but as the fight against the empire raged through the cleaning and maintenance has been sorely neglected.

Time to wrap this bad boy up.

I know it's been a while so a reminder...a 1/20 Bandai Brutish Dog, built with a 1/35 interior. The premise is, aliens invade Earth circa 1944. They are a vampiric race that use planets as farms. Earth is such a farm, but he vampires lost contact ages ago. Now, they are back and want to harvest and cultivate/manage the planet.

Assembly was mostly done in the last update. I did go back and change the markings. I took a pair of 14th Panzer Div. insignias and turned them sideways to make a trio-diamond insignia. The white circle with diamond...I'm not sure what unit that is for.
sci-fi-3_46

The cockpit was pretty empty in spots so I added some more detail. I think t gives it a tighter appearance. And I added some detail under the hatch lid. Further down, you'll see I added some more detail to the floorboard area.
sci-fi-3_47

The pilot. I modified a Masterbox female figure....using Mechwarrior pilots as my primary influence. I used styrene strips to give her body-armor, boots, and belt. The weapon is a modified MG pistol from the old Italeri Accessories set. The head is from the Dragon Vietnam Helicopter crew set. I added styrene bits to change the shape of the helmet. The face was reworked to soften her features some...with so-so results. I painted her skin sky-blue...because she's an alien. Her pose will be changed several times....see the picture further down.

Weathered and drybrushed.

A final, teaser shot for scale using the mech-troops. These were modified 1/32 Terminator figures from Pegasus.

And a close-up with some more Vampire Alien Ladies (VALs) included for size comparison.

And I am calling this one done.

I really enjoyed the build and look forward to further developing this VAL theme...and just see where it all goes. I'm up for another installment of SciFi/Alt History Campaigning...I think we'll be going to Mars for that one though.

David, beautiful entry! The weathering looks Awesome.

Alex, great job on the robot! The paint job on both the interior and exterior looks great. Only now do I realize how huge it is. Well done !

Howdy Y'all
I'm starting to see the finish line.

I need to do some weathering/wash and then a flat coat before I call this one done. I'm shooting to get this done before the deadline.
Take care,

Roger, roger, the AT-ST is completed.
Imperial Assault 28mm 'General Weiss' built as a plain AT-ST, the General Weiss figure was too "soft" to mess with.





I'm sorry the photos come out sideways (landscape), I don't know how to post them so they come out as portrait orientation.
This was a fun build, thanks Jesper for the Sci-Fi III campaign.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Rotate them in your photo editing app before you upload them.

Thanks Shell, I was able to figure it out when I loaded them into the Campaign Gallery.
Next up is yet another AT-ST in WIF Soviet markings, I'm building the old MPC kit for the "150-" campaign.
Take care,
