    TIE Experimental

    Agreed. IIRC I played the first TIE fighter game. Loved all the ships. I tried to get screen grabs with the hope of a clear view and maybe some scrathbuilding. Din't happen... πŸ˜‰

    Phantom of The Opera

    Thanks. Agreed. Saul has some outstanding stuff. I picked up his Daenrys (or however she spells her name)at last years JF. But I'm on a mission to finish one of FPs Avatar helicopters that I was told is a real dog and stopped another modeler in his tracks. (The model does remind me of one I would have gotten in the early 90s). 😯
  4. Thanks Mark! Phil, your pics aren't coming thru for me, but from the descriptions, you did make quite a score! πŸ‘
  5. Back and settled from the Nats, I had time to go thru my stuff. Because my interests are so narrow, and not really a huge part of IPMS draw, I never really come home with a lot - unlike my son (builds armor - where did I go wrong πŸ˜‰ ) who had so much we had to UPS some of it home for him... But I did get a few things. Rare Plane Detective announced on FB that he was coming with a bunch of Anigrand and Fantastic Plastic kits. That was my first stop in the Vendor Room. And then I goofed. I found a few kits of interest and said to myself I'll be back. Yeah famnous last words. When I got back those kits were gone. Duh!! But I did get a Viper from SciFi's BSG prequel series Caprica - Then I had this "What if" Soviet vehicle, that I needed figures for to make a vignette. So my son found me figures - Then lo and behold there was a table just for me with horror and sci-fi kits. I found a kit of one of Japan's folklore creatures - The Kappa. Finally when I got home there was a box waiting for me from Kabuki Miniature Models and was a kickstarter based on GoT Mother of Dragons. This is a 1/8 scale mini...

    Phantom of The Opera

    Yet another kit that has been sitting, waiting for paint for a while now. It's Lon Chaney Sr., as the Phantom of the Opera. This is a four part kit - the bust and 3 pieces for the base. Silent Screen Icons also included sheets of miniature music to add to the base. Diving right in, things start with some research and I found that Lon Chaney Sr. had both brown hair and eyes. Being that the film was in B&W, I'm free to paint the figure whatever I wanted, so I used the typical dark suit, ivory shirt, and the reddish tie. Base was painted like a dark dank sewer walls. The sheet music was provided and all I did was give it a wash with Citadel sepia. Thanks for looking.

    Ghosts in the Desert

    That is a *very* cool idea. I like that the "stage" is simple and crowded with stuff just for the sake of adding it in. 2 thumbs up from me. πŸ™‚

    Greetings from Virginia

    Welcome. We can never have too many Star Wars fans on the forums. πŸ˜‰

    LT-7 - Tiger

    Wow! Looks terrific! I’ve grown quite fond of these original designs. This one is very cool. As GKs go the sad part is the grab it or miss it way it works. I sadly missed this one.

    Wow - terrific!

    1/72 Bridge Diorama

    Wow quite the undertaking. The lighting/operating would have stopped me in my tracks. Outstanding work so far. It’s good you’re including a boat as to give people a visual for its size rather than just listing dimensions. I’ll be following this one. πŸ˜„

    Question about decal sheets for 1:72 F-86 kits

    EBay seems to be the place. In the future, Draw Decal is also a good one to keep in mind. Had nothing but good experiences with them.
