    C3PO & the other one 1/6 scale

    Cool. Nice to see another version of the character. This looks much better than the MPC I just built.

    MPC Glow Vader & Pair o' Protocols

    These three models serve as testbeds for upcoming jupiter2 work. Most of Vader was done in December. He sat until this recent session with alclad paints and was finished off. The minor metal on his body wasn't enough practice for the J2, so I broke out both of my 3-PO's as well. One was...

    Alclad Chip Chart

    With the smooth 1/650 1701 on the market, what good is the old gridded saucer? Clockwise starting with the aluminums, then the 'precious metals', the burnts and exhausts, concluding with the two steels, magnesium and chrome going on midnight. The two Lexan metals are not represented as I...

    3 Foot TOS Galactica

    That could be a perfect compromise size! 6ft is clearly too humongous for anything else than a basement to display it in. The Monogram and Moebius are just too small. While a 3ft'r can be tucked into a nice, low-ceiling'ed display case in almost any room. The cost must be a buck at least...

    source for fiber optics

    Cheers, Scott. I sell almost everything LED, except fiber optics. I cannot recommend enough Paul is the owner and a great guy to deal with. The one time I tried fishing line, the light transmission was negligible. It glowed dimly as far as the light's natural...

    Classic MPC C-3PO and R2-D2 uber detail build: Completed!

    Re: Classic MPC C-3PO and R2-D2 uber detail build There are resistor calculators online that will let you enter the colors and get the value. I've got one on my phone. There are also charts. A 'resistor value chart' search should get you something. Generally, the LEDs themselves will all...

    OOB Review: 1/350TOS Enterprise and All Accessories!

    Cheers! Yeah, this was a full 40+hr week for the bulk of the reviews. The last 2 vids of the lights took me a month to get to and were a couple full days of work. Someday maybe this general kind of effort will get me a paycheck! lol.
