nice job on those!
Sorry for the late response guys, I should look at my own wall more to see comments I've missed! Thank you kindly!
Added missing pics of stripping paint with SuperClean
late for party but actually I'm here for inspiration, like the result
Ha ha! I remember this.. thanks for the memories i_nook! I had a lot of fun with the silly putty, I must use it again someday 😄

Wow, you did a great work taking the toyish look out of them. Did you do extra work beside the paint(looks great by the way)? or are they OOB?
Thanks! They're oob, I just gave them a matte finish to knock off the shine, then blended in different shades of grey and black oil paints. No big deal, but I felt they looked good enough to post. 😁
Like the paint job, make it more real and shows the possibility of the kits 👍
Thanks Torsten 😁
Great Work 👍
Very nice. Very industrial looking.

Excellent details. awesome base, and the windows are mostly round.
I try to ;resist playing the sounds until the model is nearly finished
Paint job is unsatisfactory, must redo
Nobody here gives a fuck.

I just stepped up to the original 1966 Batmobile Deluxe edition from Polar Lights!
I paid up for it too. ?This kit has photo etched details, and a highly detailed cockpit with all kinds of Bat-gadgets and chrome, and detailed experimental jet turbine engine with an afterburner and a crime fighting super computer hidden in the trunk, and much more! ?
It came the very next day! Gotta Love Amazon! Anyone want to see what's in the box?
Answer: Fuck no!

All I can say is, Stanley Kubrick' s deathbed confessional was an eye opening and jaw dropping confirmation that the Moon landings were faked... By him. How, and why a worldwide multigenerational coverup was needed. The fact I have most trouble with is, as stated by many scientists, (and NASA astronauts) is humans simply cannot travel through the Van Allen radiation belt surrounding the Earth.
There is evidence of the Moon landings and most importantly there are reflector stations on the surface that reflect Laser beams so we can measure the distance from the Earth to the Moon.
If people can't travel through the Van Allen radiation belt then exactly when arr they going to give up on people going to Mars.
Or is all human space travel going to be faked until we're extinct to maintain some pretence
well said wilky
There is compelling evidence on both sides of the argument for "did we really go there", but it's hard to refute a huge freakin' Moonbase with regular commutes by Eagles (well, at least until that nuclear thing happened...) If JD's wall is deep enough, he could install a sparkler firework at the waste site and then ignite it in 1999......wait, already missed that one by 20 years. Oh well, the fibers still look cool anyway. 🙂
Good work so far! Looking forward to seeing how the project develops.

Thanks Argento 1975, yeah I think I've decided to keep it green and add a high gloss finish, as they were always shiny and dripping with goo. I'm having some trouble polishing the clear head piece, it seems like it may not become as clear as I had hoped
Maybe it's possible to use the clear part as a pattern and make a vacu piece?
Or dip the clear part in Future/Klir. It often helps to... "clear up clear parts"!?
That's a very complex shape to try and cast, has anyone had any luck with mold making? A Vacu-form machine would be fun to play around with. I'll definitely try dipping it in future, couldn't hurt.
I know a technology where you heat a plastic foil with a toaster. You hold the foil over the slots, needs a little bit training, maybe it's worth a try

Where's the cake?
Thanks Y'all, I made it this far.. Well, as the old proverb goes, you can't have your cake and eat it too. The literal translation is "you cannot simultaneously retain your cake and eat it, once the cake is eaten, it is gone." I'm not sure how that fits here, but it has the word cake in it, so I'm sure there is some deep wisdom there somewhere.. ?
? Happy birthday to me ?I got a new tv?and it is an LG ? Happy birthday to me??

Very rare and unnecessarily expensive
Didn't know this one was available as a kit. Nice!
Me either, that's why I had to have it. But can I get the tail fins to spin? ?
If it is poosible to mount them glueless I think there might be a chance to build in a little electric motor. That would be overcool! And then present it in a little aquarium!
That would be awesome!

I will have to settle for a knockoff version..
I was lucky to be able to purchase this kit. I'm not worthy..

For my Mother on Her 79th Birthday..
Really nice 👍
The force was with you.
Well done, looks really 😎
very nice 👍
WOW WOW WOW! What a presentation. The force was really strong with you on this one! I'm sur your mother liked it so much. So well done!!! 👍
Fine work, JD!
Great work. Love the base too.
Thanks mates! I completed this in only two days. I never set deadlines for my projects, but this time I did. Maybe that's why it seems to take me forever to finish a build..? Anyway, the time crunch helped me focus and get something accomplished without thinking about it too much like I usually do, and I'm very happy with the result! ?
The force is with you.

Nice find! 🙂
Yes! I finally decided to buy up all the SW kits I could only dream about as a child. I did have some original toys from Hasbro as a youngster, but they were all taken away from me in some form of cruel punishment that I must have deserved.. anyway I digress.. I have also, Encounter at Dagobah, and have started it. Next on my list to collect, is the Battle of Hoth, the Rebel Hanger, and the Cantina bar scene. Got to go where inspiration takes you right?
Yeah right! 👍 I found myself the cantina and had to buy it 'cause it was exactly my kind of scale.
Nice! You should start that one! I'm on a mission to build them all. I'm trying to figure out how to use the Dagobah set and build an terrarium out of it with water, plants and frogs and other buggers. That would be awesome!
Nice little builds 👍
Lovely builds. Well painted!
Really nice 👍
Somewhere on a clearing on the forrest moon Endor... ,cool subject, very nice build! Congrats mate!!! 👍
Sadly, no Ewoks being dragged behind on a rope, but still a nice diorama.
Yeah I know, this is my first attempt at making a diorama with off the shelf Woodland Scenics products, a couple years ago. I borrowed it from my Kettenkrad build to use it as a backdrop. I don't have the skills yet to do really cool dioramas, but it's on my bucket list. ?

Not really, but maybe that helps:
It does, Thanks Roland!

Inspired to return to the laboratory, our intrepid narrator presses on..
Here's an update, my glossiest finish yet. I'll let it dry a couple of days and pray the tape comes off cleanly.
Report: The tape didn't come off completely clean, revealing our humble narrator's embarrassing and pitiful mistakes... too shameful and humiliating even to post. Having to retreat back into His laboratory for further study, our Hero vows to succeed..
That's really sad. Hope he recovers soon to once again rescue our peace and prosperity!!! 😉
Nothing special, just the annual change of my Avatar.. Mk.III

Very well succeeded?
Thanks y'all! It feels good to finally complete something. Been stalled out on other works for far too long, so I needed this small victory. I went to visit my Mum yesterday and showed this to her. She liked it so much, she asked if she could have it. I was so surprised.. ?
very nice 👍
Wow truly all its money worth that kit. What a nice find! With all the gaps you filled these days you should install a pipeline to your local fillersuplier! 😄
Very nice made, 👍 Fun to watch!!!
Gentleman, I thank you. The positive energy flows through me, and I will use it to forge better models!
