And she’s done! I had a good time building this up, even though I had to put it on hold for months due to work commitments. The final photoshop wallpaper was especially fun. I used one of the dark photos to create it. The batteries are in and the lights are on in all of [...]
Sorry for the absence… all of my Industria Mechanika work has been keeping me VERY busy. I finally made some time to photograph these three Sky Mark buoys designed by Ian McQue and mastered by yours truly. Check out my Remora build-ups for more info on how these were painted and finished as I used [...]
Yesterday my laser-cut foliage (thanks to Jason Eaton) arrived and I immediately set everything else aside to finish Adrian Smith’s Frankenstein up. Like the other plants, I sponged acrylics onto both sides of the paper and embossed them with dental tools. For the daisies, I used stretched sprue for the stems. Pics are below and [...]
I finished up the Kastor a few days ago so here’s the pics of the finished build-up. Overall it went together very well, especially considering it was a preproduction sample. The base is plaster poured thin over plywood then stained with AK-Interactive products. Weeds are silflor horsehair foliage and fine turf. Rubble is plastic shape [...]

Well, here they are… my two build-ups of Ian McQue’s Remora. The red one will be shipped off to Ian in a few days where he’ll do the final rigging and the blue will most happily collect dust in my display case. Overall these were a LOT of fun, not only painting/finishing, but building the [...]
Here are the final images for the Hornethopter. It was a fun kit to design, build and paint and I hope the hundred of you that purchased one of the first edition releases enjoy building it up. Watch for the second edition to be on sale at Industria Mechanika.
I’m not sure where I left off in the progress report, but this has been done for well over a month. About time to take some pics! This is just the robot for now. The rest of the diorama will be completed at a later date. Since this Chubu was found rusting on an old [...]
Here’s a duo of 1/72 Fine Molds starfighters for the upcoming Death Star 2 diorama. Wedge’s Red 2 X-Wing and Gray Leader’s Y-Wing. These were painted just like the Millennium Falcon whichg is why there’s no how-to’s or in-progs. The markings were all painted on. The only decals I used were for the R2 units. [...]
