Thanks guys! My oldest is getting into sewing now so we're trying to decide what to do next. I might make a Siamese cat... since we have 5 cats and 4 are siamese. haha!

Here's a stuffed Kraken I started about 2-3 years ago and *just* completed. All I needed to do was finish the eyes and get some ribbon for the lace, but I was slacking.

Thanks. The kit just came out a week or two ago. The stand and the Vader come with the kit. I just painted it black and rubbed some graphite on the raised letters.

Finally finished this one up after months of sitting near-complete on my shelf. Just had to do the lighting using small surface mount LEDs behind each of the eyes. Man... those REALLY improved my soldering skills!!!!

« on: September 07, 2013, 02:35:59 PM »


Hi all. Finished painting up my Dragonfly! I designed this kit as a follow-up to the Hornet, but I think I may like this one better. Sleeker, more detail, larger, etc... Having said that, I have a spare set of hornet resin and some spare etch I saved from the 1st edition already being cleaned and blackened so I can do another one of those.

Everything I did to achieve this finish is on the link below along with a ton of photos.

Model News Feed / The Chrononaut!
« on: August 23, 2013, 05:13:07 AM »


Hi All,

After some delays, The Chrononaut is being printed next week and should be going into casting sometime in September. I'm estimating the costs based on the cost of the 3D print and it's looking like he'll cost about $180 + shipping for each kit. Please let me know if you're interested! Post here, send us an email, message us, whatever... I just need to figure out potential sales numbers to keep costs down. Thanks!

Model News Feed / Manchu's Steam Car and Dr. Torque
« on: August 17, 2013, 08:42:07 AM »




Hi all! The famous Sci-Fi artist known as Manchu (Philippe Bouchet) has been working with us to develop a model kit of the Steam Car illustration he did for a book cover back in 2001. La Machine Difference. This large 1/35 scale model kit comes with the coal trailer and 2 figures with 3D work by Bruce Lee (not that one) and Pedram Karimfazli. There's a LOT of resin parts (haven't counted yet) and a fret of photoetch for the dash. I'm also working on a 12-16 page instruction booklet containing many of the concept art illustrations Manchu did while we fleshed this out. There's probably more drawings than I can fit in the book actually... he's truly an amazing guy!

The Steam Car retails for $135.00 USD and the estimated shipping date for this preorder is 9.30.2013.

Don't blink and don't bother trying to keep up. Doktor Orpheus Odanata's Dragonfly is the fastest ornithopter in the skies. Designed and sculpted by FichtenFoo (Michael Fichtenmayer), creator of the Hornethopter, Fantastical Fish-Sub, and Long-Nose Fish Sub, the Dragonfly will add a great touch to any steampunk display. This kit boasts an impressive wingspan of 14 inches (35cm) and a length of 9.5 inches (25cm). Like the Hornethopter, the wings are two layers of photoetched brass with a laser-cut plastic wing-film insert. This multimedia kit comes with the following:

    40 Resin Parts
    1 Pilot Figure
    4 Photoetch Frets
    Glass Eyes
    Laser-cut wing film
    Rigging Wire
    Detailed Instructions

For a limited time, save $10 when you order a set of Aviators with your Dragonfly.

Hi All,

Here's my latest flying insect model kit design. This one was a lot of fun to sculpt. I started off with some rough sketches as usual, then I had a friend (Christophe Desse) do the thorax in 3D for me based on my plans as that'd be a difficult shape to sculpt otherwise. I also had to source some 1/2 sphere clear glass for the eyes. All I could find were the flatter cabochon which wouldn't work as well here as it did for my Hornet. (The original Hornethopter will be back next month as well for a 4th run.) This one's nicely sized with a 14 inch wingspan. I may do another Hornet and add these to some shadowboxes like pinned insects to hang on my wall... if my wife allows. LOL!

And here's the photoetch I designed for the wings and rigging brackets. Also the detail behind the eyes, the feet, etc... A producer friend of mine, Uschi Van Der Rosten makes a blackening agent for brass which will work wonders here. Depending on how long it's left in the solution, it'll range from brown to dark-blue/black and it acts fast! I just used it to age a brass nozzel for aspitting Moai (easter-island head) fountain I just finished.

Rust looks great so far! Nice work!

This is looking really fantastic. I wouldn't mind putting this on the product page if you're up for it when it's done. :-)

Thanks guys!


If you're on a plastic revival, I probably shouldn't mention the Pegasus Nautilus to you :)

And you just did...
Actually I saw it on the Pegasus table at Wonderfest and avoided the temptation for now. Looks amazing built-up!

PS. Can you explain some more about tricky R2 decals? I'll be doing mine some time so maybe I'll need a little help from expert.
It's just that it's like5 different decals for a half a pea-sized piece. Just make sure you follow the placement instructions and only do one decal at a time. The top one is the trickiest to line up over the detail and needs extra setting solution and a little pressure with a wet paper-towel wad to make it conform nicely.
