CURRENT PROJECTS

ZVZ_KKH-Build 013.jpg

ISD-XS (1-2700)

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

Hype the Prototype

I have chosen my next project starting in 2020...  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.  I am planning to do general lighting, as well as light the "hero" side.  Hopefully it will also have my first 3D self-designed and printed parts, as part of this as a prototype and learning project.

Status:  In-Progress...

ESB Cloud Car (SS)
 

Henning, Studio-Scale

A New-School / Old-School Resin Beauty

Wonderful resin rendition of the SS Bespin Cloud Car.​  Minimal cleanup and good fitment out-of-the-box.  This will be the first use of closely-matched colors from the Archive-X Acrylics line.

ESB Ion Cannon (SS)
 

Masterpiece Models, Studio-Scale

Most-Wanted!

I have always wanted to make a diorama of the Hoth Ion Cannon.  This resin kit is beautifully plated on the master and casted hollow.  The main ball is around 12 inches.  This one has many possibilities.

[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.

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...

HST_DS2-Port 01.jpg

ROJ DS2 Port Attack

 

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

My On-Again, Off-Again Beauty...

This started with a $25 rack from a local store-closing.  After months of analysis, I calculated the scale of the original port model to around 1-98.  There were not many ships in that scale, at the time, so I settled on 1-144.  I was a Computer Engineer, a math guy, and at one time a want-to-be Architect, so this really intrigued me.  I also like to try dioramas that have never been done before.  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 also removable and hinged to work on any innards.  With life-events, this has been sitting under plastic for about five years now, but looking to restart on the finish-work at some point.

Status:  Moved to workshop awaiting restart...
