well actually got off my butt the last few days and did some work on the Zaku II. Now he is almost fully painted and ready for panel washing. just waiting on the Grey I needed for the weapons to come in so I can paint those.
Edit: For some reason google doesn't want to work with me so i'll put a link to the image for now

A bit more progress on my AT-ST. Weathering has begun, but still a long way to go.

More to follow soon 🙂

Simon - great work!
Paul - excellent work on that old kit!
David - that Hanuebe is remarkable! love it

Its been a little while since Ive had solid bench time, and figured I was overdue for an update on the T29E3. I am depicting a T29E3 sent to Korea in 1950 for combat trials. The tank is painted in a tri-tonal scheme that apparently was applied to certain UN tanks during the conflict. With the markings applied its time to start the weathering process.

Cheers!

Yes, my camo pattern is brush painted. I like that better than masking for uneven surfaces.

Don, nice start on the Bat boat.

Si, cool effect on the storm shield. Love it!

Looking forward to see more

Howdy Y'all
Jesper-looking good, did you brush paint the brown pattern? Looking forward to more.
I finished the Anti-Aircraft campaign so I'm starting to work again on the Bat Boat. Finished the cockpit today.

Keep up the good work everyone!
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Great looking wolf rider, Si. Looking forward to see all three next to each other.

I have made a bit of progress on my AT-ST. Next is a green camo color as well.
More to follow soon

Paul, I agree you have done that old kit proud. It looks great.

Simon, nice work on the beasts. Love the finish on the fur and the snow is also a nice touch.

I have an Orc Boar rider unassembled in the stash. My now 29 year old son came looking for a few things we have in storage for him the other day. We found this kit amongst them and decided he didn't want it now. I'm tempted to join in the next build, instead of just lurking, and do that one. Hate it go to waste...

I just started today.

Originally, I intended to build a 1/16 Sci-Fi Ma.K figure and add some spare parts, but due to the time crunch, I've decided to build something simpler: Love Love Garden's 1/20 "Dragon Arms" Ma.K figure.

David, beautiful build of the flying saucer. I love the weathering. Spot on. I will steal your pencil trick for panel lining on my next bird.

Paul, Great build! You turned a very old kit into a great build.

Congrats to both on finishing!! Remember to upload pictures in the gallery if you have not already.

The next Sci-Fi campaign will start 2-3 months after this one finishes.



many thanks for the kind comments about my build, there are now some pictures in the gallery for this campaign.

i look forward to the next sci-fi build when it comes as i have plenty of kits in the stash :-)

The Ferry Rocket is done. It turned out to be a fun project and I look forward to another science fiction project. I just got one of the kits of the flying saucer from Forbidden Planet. How soon is the next SciFi campaign?

It is certainly a stunning take on the flying saucer idea. Most are squeaky clean, your looks like its seen service in the trenches . . .

i think to some degree you are right about this type of nazi flying saucer being a ground attack vehicle as there are four ball turrets on the underside and only one set of guns on the upper hull.

anyway i'm calling this one done now, time to focus on some of the other projects i have started including the three campaigns i am running lol

I agree, the finish is something else. This must have been a ground attack vehicle?

Hi all,
well this kit is just about done, a few little things to take care of and some decent pictures to be taken at the weekend hopefully.

as you can now see i have added the last stage of the weathering. this was done using oil paints. small dots ans splodges were added using raw umber paint that was streaked downwards using a dampened brush that had been dipped into thinners. this was all sealed in using the citadel purity seal.

after this i did the same again adding just a few spots of lamp oil black and burnt sienna oil paints to break up the tone with some oil leaks and rust spots accordingly.
