Wow...not much else can be said.  Everything in this dio is sooo cool...but that tree just takes the cake!  Simply beautiful. 

Well walker, it has the potential to work.  HOwever, you will run into 2 problems, and others I'm not thinking of probably... :D

First, the fact that pastels are very fragile, will make it very difficult to make a fine enough point to fit into the gap of the panel line...second, after you color about a quarter of an inch, you will have to sharpen it again...because pastels are soft, and the point will wear down very quickly. 

I'm sure there are other things that will make this more trouble than it is was the first 2 things I ran into when trying it, and I didn't bother to go any further (I tried soft drafting pencils and "click" lead pencils as well...they all just never gave me a dark enough line)...I just practiced the wash, and finally got it.  If you read the tutorials on washes, FOLLOW THEM EXACTLY, you will eventually succeed!  Just be patient, though I know how hard that is!!!

Hey all i can say is  :yeah: rock on dude!!

This is looking really great...when I think of all the possibilities with 1/35 scale, it just astounds me.  How long are you guessing this project will take...or is it just on-going?

I was wondering...are you going to do a full cockpit?

Hey mason...( :lol: I almost typed manson) this is lookin great so far.  I loved the PC games series, though I never got into the role fact, I wasn't even aware of the miniatures... ^_^...more to look into!

This kit looks to be 10-12in that right?  That's a pretty good size...I'm actually surprised it doesn't have more detail...even though it would have to been "imangined"...oh you lots to work with and have fun with.  Looking forward to seeing more.

Sticky...this post-apocalyptic "thing" (your words :sarcasm:) is awesome!  A couple of things:..first the tires...the fact that they have the brand name "Continental" on the side is so hilarious.  Those are like "cheap-o" tires, and exactly what I would expect to find lying around after a nuclear holocaust.   ^_^  Second, you did a good job on the face of the "pilot"...very expressive eyes.

Well, since everyone else has offered suggestions I'll add one too...I was just thinking what it would be like flying across the desert/badlands/insert location here...pumping lead into an advesary...and the thought of hot shell casings flying back in my face wasn't you might could add some kind of sheilding that would guide the casings down and away?  Unless I missed it, I didn't see anything like that on there.

Hey, it is perfect as is though...I guess if you don't worry about open won't worry about a few shell casings, eh?!  :lol:

Nice job, dude...later.

Taz :taz:

well there you go, good spot. That's actually the focal point of this dio. The three of them are playing Horde and it's between levels and they are scrambling for new weps and ammo!  :lol:

lol...good point...the do look ready for some Locust Lunch!!   :sick:

Hey man, this is some great work.  I really like the attention to detail from the curling of the posters to the tiny text you have placed every where.  Cool stuff, really great work.

All those kits have flaws, dude.  Tamiya and Hasegawa are tops in my book...I'm yet to see a seriously flawed one.  Trumpeter does a great job as well...but tends to have warping problems.  (easy fix though, usually)...But you will find that everyone prefers a certain "brand name".  

I've never had any problems with Academy kits either...but I absolutly cannot stand Italeri...every kit I've purchased from them has sucked in some way.  But again, that is my own personal experience.

Try them out for yourself, it is the only way you will find what works FOR YOU.

Duuuude...that guitar is sweet!  I love how you did the even have the wound sections at the end...the switches...the knobs...expertly done.   Enough cannot be said about the finish of the neck and body...too cool...looks exactly like the real thing!

Great work!

Nice looking kit...seams seem to be well done.  Ok, I don't do it much, but I'll offer a little constructive take it in the spirit it is offered.  I can't tell WHAT it is...but it looks like you didn't completely wipe away the excess when you did the wash.  Seems like there is buildup around the panel lines.  I think if you had wiped this away more, and left more in the panel lines, you would have had an even better finish.  

It looks great for your first though, keep up the good work!


EDIT:  Aha!  I missed that last section where you realized what you had done...makes sense now!  Sorry about that!   :lol:   And you are right, you have to wipe that stuff away right then and there.  Good work!

:lol: Do I see an X-wing droid as well....R2-D2 style?...out of scale of course, but that looks like the part!  This looks really cool...I like the perspective of it all...nice!

:cry: Another beautiful helo down the tubes...

 :razz: However, what you ARE building looks really cool...even if it is Magna!  :lol:

Again...looks great...the buildup looks complicated, but I know  you can pull it off.

Hey Max...very nice so far.  This is a very nice kit...and somewhat unique as well.  Very cool...looking forward to the finish line!  8)
