CURRENT PROJECTS

ZVZ_KKH-Build 212.jpg

ISD-XS (1-2700)

Commercial/Kit-Bash/Scratch-Build, Non-Studio-Scale

Ongoing Personal Project...

This project started in 2020...  a Cross-Section Star Destroyer, based on a picture in the Star Wars Incredible Cross Sections book.  At the core is a Zvezda/Revell (1-2700) Kit, which is about two feet long.  Hopefully it will also have my first 3D self-designed and printed parts, as part of this as a hybrid prototype and learning project.  This was on hold for two years to finish out two mega-projects for ESB and ROJ 40th Anniversary exhibits at Wonderfest.  Work on this started back up in Fall of 2023...

Status:  In-Progress...

ROJ DS2 Port Attack

 

Scratch-Build, Non-Studio-Scale (1-144)

Phase II reStarted and Completed in 2023

This started as a $25 rack from a local store-closing.  After months of analysis, I calculated the scale of the original model to around 1-98.  At the time, there were no ships in-scale, so I settled on 1-144.  I was an Engineer and a math guy, so this really intrigued me.  I also like to do "untried" dioramas.  After completing the fully-lit tunnel, it took two years to complete the port itself... and is completely hand-built.  The top of the port is removable and hinged access innards. This sat mostly under plastic for a decade.  Phase II, the top/surface, was completed for an appearance at Wonderfest 2023 (ROJ 40th Anniversary exhibit).

Status:  In-Progress...

Coming Soon Neon Light

[UNDER THE BENCH]
 

The projects shown below were selected from the build stash as the next projects to be worked on.  Some are resurrections of older projects.  All projects are subject to change...

RCM_Hammerhead Corvette (Rogue1) 02.jpg

RG1 Hammerhead Corvette
 

RCM, Non-Studio-Scale (1-250)

I've Got an Idea...

This is a great rendition of the Hammerhead Corvette, from Rogue 1.  This ships was one of the fan favorites from the movie.  This one also screams for a section of ISD for display, like the core scene from the movie.

Status:  Upcoming...

MER_SS Anakin Podracer (1-8) 03.jpg

TPM Ani's Podracer

 

Merlin Models, Studio-Scale (1-8)

Still Drooling...

I got in on the original 2020 release of this monster 3DP kit of Anakin's Podracer from TPM.  This thing is a monster of a kit, beautifully engineered as far as the parts breakdown and display options.

Status:  Reviewing the painted examples...

R1DS_Build 000c.jpg

RG1 Death Star
 

Korbanth + Scratch-Build, Half Studio-Scale

On-Again, Off-Again Fun Project

This started as a half-Studio-Scale ANH Death Star Kit, from the original film.  Since it had a separate main laser dish, I decided to try and custom-build the inside more to the Rogue-1 scene, where the laser was being mounted and you could partially see the inside.

Status:  Playing with a 3DP STL of the main laser...
