Well, I know a good caster and PE guy if you need their info. It's the people I use.

Hey i would like that info...... for future projects  :D. My actual project (1/48 blizzaia) will be my own cast, but i wonīt mind to ask for a quote. please  ;)

I donīt know where to start..... well, ok; your built is great and love the design really, but i have a sort of mixed feelings about it  :(, because i would never dare to kit bash  an awesome kit like the leynos (and is expensive, around 85 USD)  ^_^. Letting this apart, as i said it is great. Since the Leynos is 1/35, is it yours too? What kind of camo have you planned?

For the gatling there are some great kits from Adlers Nest at HLJ (3, 4 or 6 tubes gatling). I have the tree tube and is great. hope it could be useful  ;)

Iīll keep waching this WIP

The model is great.... but, the base is "awesome.... is beyond awesome.... is be-awesome" (Rhino from Disney-Pixar Bolt movie)  ;)

Thanks guys......  :D

Iīve been thinking about some strips, but i havenīt decided the color yet.... white?, Yellow?, maybe both?...  :meh2:

looks amazing and original  :twitch:  i love it...

iīll keep an eye on this one...... and still waiting for more Argun  :-)


Time for an update.... the painting process has started  :lol:

I decided for a green-green hard bordered "Stukish" pattern. first i began with a light green base coat. After dried (for two days) the model was masked to apply the next color (dark green). I couldnīt tell you how i get to this particular tones..... I just started mixing differents color until i found what i wanted.......

Then, the day after i proceeded to remove the masking tape and to paint the mechanical parts in freight stock grey, gun metal and steel....

The next step is  to apply a satin varnish cote and begin with the weathering, using the artist oil filters and dot techniques.

see ya soon.... hope you liked it so far

Looks amazing, great weathering.............  about the base it is suposed to be some volcanic rock or so?, i donīt know it doesnīt look natural the black/grey rock with the brown dirt. Anyway i like it..... congrats  :lol:

To fix the vfin insert a short bit of small brasss rod, and sculpt  a new one on top out of your material of choice (i would use sgt)

Thats exactly what i would do...... try magic sculp.

This kit is huge  :twitch:

I guess the guy you are building this for, should have a big house.... otherwise heīll have to sleep outdoors and the model in his room  :razz:

What now? Painting?....... iīll keep an eye on this.

Looking great so far............ the jolly rogers scheme is better than the white-red-blue.... seems like a real airplane   ;) itīs a pity that the smoked canopy would hide some of the excelent work in the cockpit.


Here some pics of the complete pre-assembly......... hope you like it-

The head height is around 15 cm... no so small  ;)

Next step......... Painting  :D

Any updates here?... :(,  is awesome. Iīve been planning to do some hovertruck modification myself for a while, using a rocket launcher from a 1/35Th Hummvee Avenger, but other projects have been kept me away from it. But your are making me willing to start it  ;)

Congrats great job

Hi; little update

I pinned the whole thing and started pre-assembling.... Iīm very anxious to see how it will look standing alone. You know what is curious..... iīve never built a resin model and turns out that the first is my own model  :lol:

Well, I chose the pose, the model joints are designed so you can build it in different poses you just pick one then pin it and glue.... ;)

I decided for the one in the art from the game.

Here some pics of the lower parts

It is not glued yet, is just holding by the pins. The figure is 1/48th, so you can figure the size.

I really donīt like the core fighter as a plane, but the kit is awesome.... and Iīm sure youīre gonna squiz it  ^_^... In fact the cockpit looks great.

What do you use for the seat-belts? Is the deck tractor from Verlinden?

Iill be keeping an eye (or two) in this thread

looking great.............. very unussual subject  :lol:

Like to see more.

Clee: Thanks man. That was really awfull and frustrating...... But as Walt disney used to say "Keep moving forward"  :-)

Helmos: That was exactly what happened...... Yes, one way to prevent this is letting the rubber cure under pressure; but Iīve been told that degassing applying vacuum to the rubber prior pouring is more effective, so iīm going to try this first plus I already got one device to do it.... Anyway any advice is very welcome, so thanks a lot for yours.  :D. about the pricing I think it would be around 70  USD plus shipping, but i couldnīt tell this is the final  ???

Meanwhile i was bullding the machine gun. I used a kotobukiya kit, made a mold of it and modified it to get what i wanted.

And finally...... i sanded, sanded, sanded an sanded again the ruined cast  :(. then primed it. Here is the result.

The kit will consist of more thar 40 pieces.

NEXT STEP..... ASSEMBLY    :drool:......... i hope when you see the whole thing somebody would be interested in get one cast.... but of course not from the ruined molds  ^_^.

 When new mold are ready and the test cast is done iīll post how it looks so any body interested can see the cast quality. I will be using smooth-on urethane plastic for the castings.

Thatīs all for now i hope you enjoied.

Ok...... i mixed and poured the silicone rubber very carefully, and got my molds  :lol:...... they look good donīt they?... i was really excited about it.

Well, there was a problem  :(, i ussually use Smooth-on rubber for my molds, becuse it doesnīt need to be degassed and work very nice with the pressure casting, but since i donīt live in the states (i live in Venezuela) this is imported and very expensive. So, i decided to to try with a new silicone rubber that is being produced locally...... ooops, i didnīt have a vacuum system for silicone degassing (i already have one now  :shifty:), and the mold resulted to be full of bubbles  :twitch:  :twitch:, and when pressure was applied to the resin when casting look what happened.....

HorrorĄĄĄĄĄĄ, i was in shock and really pissed off  :mad. I thougt.... "if i want it to be sold to other modelers, i canīt offer this thing", so what to do?..... I decided:
First: used this ruined cast (i sanded an repaired it), to at least view how the final model would be.
Second: Make new molds, degassing the silicone.
