  1. the series in japan is called space battleship yamato in us it was called starblazer and the name of the ship is called argo the ship your daughter is building is called black tiger 1
  2. i love your model it is beautiful but may i make a suggestion it looks too clean might want to weather it a bit
  3. watch the movie zapped there is a scene when Scott Baio first gets his powers he floats a model spaceship around his room the model spaceship looks like a early concept for the NX-01 but for the ship the used the amt millenium falcon without the sidewalls and a pair of amt refit nacelles and supports
  4. reason for the display was simple to coordinate with the opening of the dark knight rises & the amazing spider-man in movie theatres
  5. every time i see this thing i keep hearing the borg saying resistance is futile, we will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own
  6. question got a paint job that look frosted have tried everthing to remove paint nothing has helped any clues
  7. robin ibeleive that the end of the prequels will end with the "space jockey" ship crash landing on Lv426 and the creature/xenomorph aka queen bursting out of the pilot which i now belive to be david in engineer form
  8. i'm sorry i enjoyed the film from what i am gathering you wre expecting another alien or at least a prequel when everything Read before hand said this is not a prequel but has strands of alien DNA. espcially with then end and the alpha creature. plus keep in mind,this is not the whole story for they are two more movie planned for promeithius.
  9. as far as the revell x-wings and y-wings they are not in scale with the revell tie fighters that's why we used the mpc kits they were as for the y-wings they are going to be in a forced perspective situation since they are not in scale
  10. got a a-wing that is broke never going to build it is yours write me a dlots1701a@charter.net for your address
  11. like you i have the fine molds 1/48 great kit but for this build uneconomical, when building these i discovered the fun of building star wars subjects again, go back to the mpc's not the amt's and their warped bodies, sure they are not 100% accurate they are fun kits to build.
  12. then explain why here in Spartanburg S.C. we have 3 IPMS chapters and 1 car club
  13. on purpose. 3 different modelers are working on the x-wings we are going from red leader to red six and our star wars historian/expert looked up color schemes for all of the x-wings from red leader to red six so that is what we went by.
  14. well i have a suggestion have any of you thought about adding a tv/movie catergory to your auto catergories. a local club has done this here while not much of a turnout in the catergory it eliminates some of the "customs"
  15. My group is doing a group build for a permant display in a local comic shop. attaching a couple of pis of our Work in progress \ Our X-wings or as i call this shot Baa Baa Rouge Squadron Our T.I.E.S. Vader's Squadron The Y-wings these babies took 2nd in a local show \ Can't have a Star Wars display without the Falcon and last but not least our Tower guns under construction
  16. Greeting y'all from S.C. well the IPMS/Upstate Scale Modelers has done it again i am enclosing pictures for our Avengers/Marvel Display that took place May 4th and 5th at the Carmike 7 in Spartanburg S.C., The display was seen by hundreds of moviegoers and helped raise awareness of our group.
  17. nope definate Dark Knight Returns beautiful job
  18. so was half as diificult as the first kit
  19. let me introduce Myself The Name is Chris Whitford I am from Boiling Springs S.C. at current I am the chapter contact for IPMS/Upstate Scale Modelers. We are a Small group comprising of about 15-20 members, Myself I am A TV/Movie Builder that means i am mainly Sci-Fi but can jump from cars to motorcycles to speedboats and everything else in between.
  20. WEll have any of you really and i mean really talked to car guys, Tim and I deal with a indepedent Club here in South Carolina called South Carolina Modelers Association which is primarly a model car club. sure they build other things but what they are primarly known for are cars, I have attended their Greenville,Spartanburg, and Charleston contests and when it comes to their contests. The cars are judged by the modelers themselves while military,Ships etc are judged IPMS style. Last year i attended a car show in Spartanburg that had a small model contest with it, mostly SCMA members showed up and in the lull time i talked to one guy and mentioned he should enter an IPMS show. his answer was no the reason being he did not like our rules & our style of judging or how our catergories are set up. You see these guys don't think like IPMS Members do where as we put emphisis on Basic Construction,Paint, Decal and overall authinticity. These guys don't focus on that sure they will go all out on a beautiful paint job, but will leave details like mold pins under the hood, or leave seams on the transmission etc. , now how do you resolve this with IPMS and car guys. first off look at us as group IPMS has the stygmatism of being Planes & Military, as a scifi-builder who dabbles in cars it is a little off putting especially to anyone outside of those catergories maybe it is time to put emphsis of all models and modelers instead of Planes and Military. 2. as far as catergories and judging goes you may have to adaopt a different policy when it comes to cars something like The SCMA does, Do i like it NO,but maybe changing how the cars are judged at IPMS contests will get this stygmatism off our backs. I am only posting my opinon not here to cause any trouble or hurt feelings.
