Custom TIE Interceptor Model Kit – with a First Order Twist

GE

Managed to score a day off from work yesterday…and complete a project! This is the Revell/Monogram Snap-tite TIE Interceptor. A simple, fun little build, this was. It comes pre-painted in the traditional Tie Interceptor colors, but you do wanna trim the spurs. It didnt come with a base so i borrowed one from a broken Star Trek kit and then placed them on that nift light-up stand.

I liked the black look of the First Order TIE Fighters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. So, i gave it a metallic black overall color, thre in the red accents, and silver panels…and here we are…with the wings reversed, just for kicks 🙂

Aile Strike Gundam completed….finally!

GE
Finally finished this kit last week. 3rd item on this year’s project list to be completed too 🙂 (no resolutions this year, just projects…) this is BanDai’s Mobile Suit GAT-X105 Aile Strike Gundam. It was a nice build…replaced the standard colors with metallics, love the way they turned out. Really enjoyed the fact that not a single drop of glue was needed. Nicely detailed and rather poseable(?)…wonder what will come next…i may have somethin up my sleeve…new year…new possibilities…

Gundam Astray Red Frame model kit…

WP_20150630_004 This came together much quicker than I expected it to, and I wanna thank my daughters Dakota, Graci and Logan for allowing me time to work on it this weekend. This is my Gundam Astray Red Frame model kit. Love the way it turned out. Almost exactly as I had imagined it would.

WP_20150630_002Tried makin a special background for it too…while at work 🙂

It just looks bad ass. I have 2 more to build…not the Astray Frame models though…but they will have to wait…Its time to draw something…

Mobile Suit Gundam – Gundam Astray Ishigaki Frame

WP_20150623_008 WP_20150623_001 WP_20150623_002Ahhh one of the fun things about building a model kit is finding some way to customize it and make it unique. Sometimes it can be as simple as changing the color scheme or as complex as scratch-building parts to fit your needs (something way beyond my capabilities).

This model kit had been sitting on a shelf for years, along with quite a few others. Purchased many years ago and i couldnt even tell you why i never built it until now. But, waiting did allow an opportunity for Krystal to provide her usual inspiration, and a few ideas (the gold guns were all her 🙂 ). Originally this was the Gundam Astray Red Frame, 1/100 scale model kit from Bandai. I Changed the color, obviously, took a gun from the 2nd Red Frame kit i have (which I am currently planning out with a few mods) and then while working on it decided this would be dedicated to a friend and co-working who has been battline medical issues for quite some time. Despite everything, she has such a courageous and positive attitude…so here’s to you Ritsuko Ishigaki! Here’s your Gundam Astray Ishigaki Frame mobile Suit…

Cant wait to build the next one…
