AIP re-issue of the Aoshima kit.
Done over a couple of days for the 'and why not' Dept. Came out at about 8 & 1/2" or 216mm long.
Tamiya paint mix specially for the main colour, pencil panel lines for the main part and pastel chalk weathering.
Markings stock decals and small markings via decal...
The Playing Mantis/Aurora reissue of the Addar Dr. Zaius.
Got as a quick build for me and fun many moons ago, decided to finally get stuck in because why not.
Only faffing about was to replace the moulded in detail of the boxes and rods for the Alpha/Omega missile controls on the altar thingy...
Some resin lumps slammed together and made to behave themselves!

Came out at 6 & 3/4" tall. Lights added and no interior by request.
I thank you most kindly. Truth to tell, always liked the Eagle design and still do.
Well it still might not be the same as 'seeing it' it's about as close as one can get witrh a short video I shot, here's the link on YouTube:

Had top do a bit of rework on the supplied landing gear as it just went all the way to the bottom stops. The springs were just not...

Well happy new year to one and all!
Finished off this one during the Christmas capers, just built with only the supplied items with the exception of the glazing for the cockpit and gun turrets as the supplied stuff was rubbish. Some 5 thou" clear sheet sorted that problem.
Full paintjob, decals...
Thought I'd sling this one up, completed a wee while back but what the hell.
Never built the kit before now, yeah I know, shame on me and all that but this one was done with the Paragrafix photo etch and resin extras, some bought in lighting and some by yours truly.
To get things out the way first, I honestly am not a fan of the show as such but love the design and tell it like I see it so...
Got handed this build to do.
Mostly one could say, it's a 'kit build' as I have a pile of pre-made parts. At least that was the idea in the beginning.
Howdo folks and folkettes!
Right, not a fully public page as such, got more than just a few things to sort with the client on this build so may still happen or get canned in short order.
Not sure but here it is anyway.
