Default What models are you building?

Well as the Title says What Models are you currently building? Anything interesting- out there




I guess I will get things started Im currently ACTIVLY working on over 11 models all in various states of completion / work

1 Millennium Falcon in A New HOPE dressing
2 Captain Harlocks Arcadia (green Version)
3 a Space Station from various left over model bits
4 a 1/144 and 1/72 Apollo LEM Lunar Landers
5 a 1/144 Saturn V
6 BABYLON 5 (the station)
7 The YAMATO from Starblazers
8 the Colonial Marines A.P.C. from Aliens
9 Alpha (the big one I started a while back) and yes im still slowly working on it
10 1/288 Drax Moonraker hanger diorama (Just got the kit)
11 Battlestar Galactica (revell kit WAY KITBASHED)

Every one of these kits I have actually worked on in some shape or form in the last 2 months. I get tired working on one so I put it aside and step to another and so on. This I have found Keeps me a quite happy Modeler especially if I need something then Im not at complete work stoppage I also find I bin less models this way - hell the Battlestar Galactica has been so so so god what's the word FRACKING annoying I have almost binned it several times but back in the box it goes 10 years and counting Its actually funny the day I met my wife it was on my work desk in my dorm room and donna asked me what it was, so its kinda got history now

My therapist encouraged me to keep doing models even though my fine motor skillz are gone (head and back injury) the building helps me.

So let me trying get so pics up of the stuff im working on (just looked at the clock must go to bed) lets se what yall are working on!

SHOW me your BUILDS

The full list could take a couple of pages, as I am such a butterfly modeller - flitting from project to project as mood and outside pressure takes me - but the abbreviated one is as follows.

Set of Supreme Daleks from Comet Miniatures kits - possibly to include unused design. (Pictures soon in Invasion 2009 Thread)

The Pheonix from "Science Ninja Team Gatchaman" - mainly conversion work as the Japanese original was a motorised thing with wheels where the engines should be.

Supersylph version of "Yukikaze" from the Anime of the same name.

FM Tie Fighter.

Warp Hawk, Eagle, and lift platform.

Joe 90 Explosives truck

Studio 2 SPV with rubber wheels

1:1 scale weapons, including comic version and movie version Lawgiver from "Judge Dredd", both season Stunguns and a comlock, movie and TV "Lost in Space" pistols, various phasers and disruptors from the Scottish Series, (And once I have finished them, phaser rifle, disruptor rifle, Starship Troopers officer's rifle, and Colonial Marine Pulse rifle to follow.)

Tank and lightcycles from "TRON"

Babylon 5 Starfury with custom 'nose art'

My main current build is actually a rebuilding of my Space:1999 style space station that you may have seen in UFO:1999. It suffered an accident a few weeks ago when one of the buildings that doubled as both a SHADO and Alpha building in the videos came crashing off the wall. Of all the models it could have damaged the most, naturally it tried to take out the most fragile and one of my favorites.
But, no worries, I had wanted to reinforce some of the sagging sections-the landing pad is heavy, and balance the model on its tiny rod better, so I am adding a new section opposite the landing pad. I plan to post photos once it is completed. I came up with a little something special I also plan to add to it...more on that in the future.
Here it is, as it was before the face lift. The video will be added to the next Youtube installment in the future.

Way Agreed the engine alone is a nightmare let alone not even complete, I 2 have built this one a couple of times but overall they make great dioramas if you blast the crap out of it like they did in the movies (tones of bullet holes busted glass etcetera)

Quite - my model room is an Aladdin's cave of half finished kits and scratchbuilds. I've not done anything for months, so I've decided to get back into it by picking just three kits to work on at a time.

My three are:
Super Star Destroyer - just received and looks straightforward. May even light it.

Starbug 1 - a scratchbuild from over 10 years ago, inspired by David Sisson's build in an SF&F magazine.

Sevans Movie dalek - done two or three Sevans TV daleks over the years but never tried a Movie one yet.

Photos to follow.

Phil.

Just one at the moment, a scratchbuilt replica E11 blaster from Star Wars. I've been ill over xmas so it's slow going, but I'll post pics soon.

Some fantastic and varied subjects in this thread - makes for excellent window shopping.

Been on a Steampunk bent for the last year, this is what's on my bench at the minute:


A full sized prop sonic rifle called the 'Thunderbuss', it has illuminated valves, 'working' targetting and setting guage, and the business end lights up blue when you pull the trigger.

Other recent projects include:


The Celestial Orb Steampunk space ship, based loosely on the Aries 1B from 2001, built around a Woolworths solar powered garden light.


Steampunk space helmet- full lit wearable prop, with two PC fans to stop the wearer from passing out! Amazing what strikes you when you see acrylic cloches and polypropolene planters on a vist to the garden centre...

I might ventre back to the future, I've made far too much Victoriana in the last year!

I've been trying to get back into some modeling over the last year but living in an apartment with housemates hasn't given me any space to do much. I've been prepping a few models for painting but that is where I really get hung up. Finally cleaned off a backroom counter near my laundry and hope I can make up a paint box or something there. Don't think I'll get up to the par most of you have on here but it will be fun to see some final outcomes...

Working on now:

MPC Hawk - seams filled and all parts prepped for painting
Eagle Cargo Pallet with Nuclear Waste Canisters - cleaned and ready to paint
Mattel Eagle - support beams cut out of the pod (need to seal holes) with interior walls to insert... after painting whole Eagle

Cleaning off that counter got me into the mood to scratch build something. I have all the PE Eagles which were looking lonely on my shelf, so I went after something sorta easy to start with. Always loved the monitoring station as far as the buildings went which was used in so many ways through the series.

Had to do a quick mock-up to see if it everything fit when I first started:



A miscalculation on the length of the tube had it way too tall so rather than make the side buildings thought I'd add a lunar mound around the bottom with styrofoam and paint it after the rest is finished. Even considering a rotating radar dish at a later date when I find a small motor...



Clear tube base; will cover inside with safe paper so no light bleeds through the paint, only the windows which I'll fill with vellum. Probably a low watt yellow/orange bulb.
