    BSG Mark VIIE Viper (my version)

    Been working on this for a few months and finally finished. This is the Moebius 1/32 viper. I did not modify the nose to the correct E generation shape. I just shortened it and blended in the long ventral wing fin things so they conformed and looked aerodynamic. I also tinted the canopy to an...

    McQuarrie 12 inch A-wing scratch build

    Been working this one for a while and was not happy with it. Until I finally got a break and fixed it up to the point I'm ready to show you guys. Built from a painting I saw of a Ralph McQuarrie A-wing. Gotta love Ralph's concept art. Here are some pics of my scratchy progress.

    Revell resistance X-wing

    Here's mine. These things go together in about 3 minutes! I didn't use the cock pit or droid though. I also thinned out and fixed a few things. I used some aluminum tubing in the cannons also. Thanks for looking

    25 inch Y-wing scratch build

    Been a while since I made any progress on this newer model. I drew up my own plans and its only a loose representation of a Y-wing (slightly short of studio scale..I think). So far its all wood and styrene ("For sale" signs from Walmart), I added my brew in one of the pics for a scale ref...

    My concept X-Wing

    This was a scratch build a long time in the making. It started as my own version but I hated the final product. So I cut it up and started again, this time rebuilding the front half and making it more Ralph McQuarrie like. Hope you guys like. Still need to add an astro-mech. Any suggestions...

    Oblivion Bubble Ship scratch-build

    Just starting this scratch build of my current favorite movie vehicle. I really don't know if this is going to work out but if I get it finished it will measure about 16 inches long. I'm winging it right now so I don't have any firm plans yet as to how I'm going to build. More to come,, I...

    23rd Century "Pistol" (Phaser)

    Got this in the mail last Friday and dove right in! What a great kit! I recommend this for anyone who wants a nice replica TOS phaser. I also made the base from a Star Wars ship base piece and a couple magnets, one in the base and one in the handle. The insides have plenty of room if you...

So I was off to Lowe's to hunt down some bits and pieces and with a lot of work got this done early this morning. Just need to attach the D ring as soon as the paint dries. Now its time...

    MPC Millennium Falcon

    Hi all, Been working on this kit for a week now and haven't even touched the actual kit yet except for the fact that I don't like the canopy part. So Ive decided to make a new one. Needed to make it a little longer and therefor look a tad larger. The diameter is only a couple mm bigger than...

    MPC Falcon cockpit tunnel upgrade

    I'm trying to scratch-build a tunnel and cockpit for the MPC Falcon kit to try and bring it up to the correct (bigger) size. But, I'm having a heck of a time. I just cant seem to get it looking right. Does anyone know of an aftermarket resin cockpit or know any tricks? Ive used PVC and...

    Red leader MPC X-wing

    Hi, I've been working on this kit for a few weeks now and am getting close, or closer... to finally completing this thing. I wanted to make it look better than what the kit originally was so I searched and used a lot of what I found on the net as a guide to beef this sucker up! I have used...

    Hasbro A-wing

    This is my old old Hasbro A-wing toy. I tore it apart and sanded all the raised panel lines off and re-scribed them. After a quick re-assembly it was painted and heavily weathered to try and match the studio scale A-wing. I also scratch built the lazer cannons. The thing I like about this is...
