In-Progress Creations / Re: Vertical cityscape (h0 scale)

I am planning on painting it and at least griming it up.
Was planning on making it more or less one or twee shades of gray. But I do like the different, lighter colours it has on the bare plastic.

That's a lovely doll and very nice design.
I have not heard of these BJD's before, but will check into it as I'd like to add something of articulation to some models and I dislike polycaps and such.

« on: September 10, 2020, 11:28:40 AM »
I have been very interested in these huge dystopic towering cityscapes from artists like Nihei and Chantarra. A bit Kowloon City on steroids.
Having an ample supply of h0 scale houses I figured I'd try to make a test panel to see if it works. A POC if you will.
Used an Ikea picture frame for it,  hoping to convey something liek the city bursting out of its bounds.
Glued the backing in and filled it with CD cases and assorted plastic shapes to make for a less even backdrop.
Then started to add houses and stuff without a real plan, to make it more organic (I hoped at least).
Already looks cool on the wall, just needs a ton of wires and tech and sheds.

Don't see these enough, so here's one.
Made for my girlfriend at the time as she loves the design.
Good practice for a wee bit groundwork and an attempt at weathering.

Lots learned, lots to learn.

Cool, the details are a really nivce touch.

With the spring wire, look for the recasters of Ma.k on ebay, they usually sell a bunch of this spring for cheap, or wave springs at hlj (which are more expensive).
Guitar wire works after a fashion, but is more stiff.

Waiting for the nexxt update ^_^

Maybe a bit too long....

All made with leftover parts, culture loops, spoons, tea stirrers, pipets, umbrella parts, random plastic crap ^_^

nice save, I love the terminator, it oozes evil
The gun attachment works pretty well, smart thinking.

Added some plastic around the leg wells to create a raised edge and widen the vehitle a bit in the middle.

Then drilled, sawed and sanded a hole for the cockpit. Added walls and a chair (from a 1/20 racecar I think, doesn't fit 1/20 figures though...)

And started on a pilot (1/24 scale) using 1/24 legs and a 1/20 divers torso that was quite small for the scale.

Just some major gap filling and then it's on to puttying and mechanical detail.

For a sortof competition on the Mechalounge I decided to build a vehitle (  
Scrounged some interesting parts from the box of plastic waste and started.
I want to try and use as little kit parts as possibly, mostly to clean out my boxes of random crap, but also because I always turn to kit parts while I have so many nice shapes and pieces that I neglect because I feel it too be too much work to make something out of it...

Glued the bunch together

Then I made some leg parts from 10 and 25 ml pipets, bent using a lighter, also made lumpy on purpose.

Dude's got a ball ^_^

And the parts that keep it in place.

Started building the leg wells too, now just need to find more parts for the legs

cool! very evil looking cathedral ship!

yes, do bring the dwarves

Yeah, the stickers are also 0.5 mm thick, so they add dimension. Very cool stuff if you like that sorta thing.
And they can take white spirit, so oil weathering is possible.
Just need to make sure they'll stick on forever, so couple of layers of clear coat before anything else.

Man, I don't usually get jealous of other modelers, but this....

Why were people able to make such nice cars in the past and now we generally have these generic shapes without identity?
I think (of the normal affordable cars) almost only Lancia still makes some designs that really stand-out

nice! those ships are really something.
the upgraded ships for the military are way better than the originals, they actually look like warships.

The pirate ships don't seem to be flight capable, bit orky in that, but they sure are a presence on the field.

Any more to come?

thanks guys

Will, I actually like the fins as they are, offsets the shape a bit, the calliope launcher is on there for the same reason.
I that some fledermaus skids I tried on, but didn't like the look, so now it has recessed rounded skids, they don't really stand out, but that was the idea.

In the meantime, this thing got a bit of colour and some gold to make it look like something royalty would drive. colour idea comes from the last exile model expo from a while back. Some of the weirder vehicles were (dark) red with gold decals. Lacking those decals I opted for simple DIY card stickers.

just 2 more layers of gloss coat and I can start detailing and weathering, if I feel like it that is ^_^

I didn't feel like painting , nor did I want to finish one of the other long-term projects.
So I decided to follow Marcel du Long's ( footsteps and build something quick and easy from a small scale battleship kit.
I figured such a build would be good for the building stamina. Start it, finish it, no hassle.

Sadly, this also meant it was quickly built, so little WIP pictures.

I used a vintage (and apparently very expensive) Aurora 1/600 enterprise kit, turned upside down for the hull. With a 1/32 p38 cockpit for the, well, cockpit.

Then I filled up the hull with (mostl) a 1/87 revell BigBoy locomotive, all holes that were left were filled with leftovers from this locomotive and some random stuff from the bitsbox.
I think there's 1/84 jeep parts in there, 1/24 and 1/20 engine parts, 1/35 calliope rockets and 1/32 stuka cockpit details.

Basically just needs some antennas on the lowerside, some cockpit parts and a pilot of course.
Someone suggested it looks like a vanship, but I don't think I can add the weird propulsion system those things have.

Name ideas? anyone?
