Ron Hembling starts a new project...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, August 25 2016
"Hi All,

I try not to do two projects at once but I really couldn't hold back anymore, I had to start on the Stan Arts 1/12 Dewback.

The casting on the is excellent there is next to no seem lines and what there is of them took me 15 min all up to get rid of the. The legs and toes were glued with superglue and the legs were attached to the body using superglue as well.

I have my trusty helper Bob show how great a Bandai Figure works with this kit. I have some little gaps I have to fill and then I will be using this leather to cover the saddle and bridle as for the reins.

Ron"

Needless to say we are loving this so far!



Kualan previews the next chapter!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, August 25 2016
"Here's a preview for the next issue!"

Needless to say the wait is just agonizing for me. What a great way to keep The Clone Wars alive and well. Matter of fact I find Kualan's story a bit more entertaining than the orginal TCW, but don't tell Mr. Filoni!



Darth Streams is back with more 3D Printed Goodness!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, August 25 2016
"Other things I've been up to is, I printed a g0t0 directly of the model from KOTOR II TSL, and scanned my 15 inch cthulhu and printed him at 2.5" scale."

Wow that g0t0 looks fantastic! I would so love to see this in action wouldn't you?



Bronxstalker is back with a new Mando...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, August 25 2016
He shows us a new Mando he has made...

This one is also up for grabs on eBay if your like him!



KRZTFR shares more of his Fallout Armor...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, August 25 2016
"Now a bit added some additional make shift armor pieces..."

It is really looking tough to me.



Ron Hembling shares his progress on his Rogue One Trooper...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, August 24 2016
"Hi All,

No to much of an update. I finished the chest section and have covered the joints on the legs and have started on the back of the armour.

I have also started adding plastic card and putty to the helmet so that I can shape it and then start adding the rest of the armour it the helmet.

If your wondering why I have only painted sections of him it because painting the areas I have sanded makes it easier to spot any cracks or uneven areas.

Ron"

And yet another great customizing tip from the customizing master Ron Hembling!



Mandalore 25 is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, August 24 2016
"Been a while, had to keep #199 on the down low to enter it in a contest, got 3rd place. I'm quite pleased how my Deku Link from Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask turned out, he actually looks like wood. Started with the World of Nintendo minifigure, taking off the head and feet. Retooling the head, I bulked it up a bit to keep the scale factor, and cut the hat off to add in a swivel joint, so the clear stand could be used, and he can twirl like in the game. The body is from a Sonic the Hedgehog, Tails action figure with the hands and feet taken off."

Trust me there is a lot more to this build than the first part of his description above. This one is up for sale on eBay" if you are interested.



Darth Streams putting his 3D Printer to great use...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, August 24 2016
"My original Naga Sadow sculpt took about 2 days to print because of the ridiculous high quality build height I have my prints set to (0.04mm) which is almost 10 times finer than average. Then the wip pics, black coat, red coat, then terracotta overlay with details."

Wow that looks great!

Stronox shows us his 6" Scale Durge...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, August 23 2016
"At last I have completed my 6 inch scale Durge! He is super articulated, the chest emblem has been scribed (not just painted) has tons of his signature weaponry including magnetic shields, his jetpack arms are super poseable and can be removed and he is a very big boy...This is probably the most involved custom figure I have ever done and I def will not be making another ever! He is up for sale on my FB page as well...Thanks for taking a look!"

Wow, he sure looks great to me.



Darth Daddy is back with an update...

"Here's the next one!

"JABBA's MERCENARY PILOT"

Looks spot on to me.

"The latest in a batch of more commission pieces...Working hard!"

They sure look fantastic to me! Make sure you scroll down when you are done and see his awesome six inch Durge too.



Panther figures out his Sith Trooper Helmet...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, August 23 2016
"I was looking at the Lego Sith Trooper's Toms helmet and thought to myself that I've pulled apart this Snowtrooper, rebuilt his armour and now I'm going to stick a Lego helmet on his head. I've got this far and that just felt like cheating a little, so I decided to cast the Toms helmet and make it a little larger. Something I have only done once before and that was making bones for my Rancor pit.

After taking the initial mold, I carved into the cast and made the helmet deeper and extending the face plate a little. It turned out rather well and Tom is happy because he gets his helmet back ;)!

I also added extra pieces onto his armour, extra bits onto his gauntlets, he just needs a little sand down and then I think he'll be ready to paint!"

I think it turned out rather well too!



KRZTFR is back with a WIP...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, August 23 2016
"Raider Power Armor WIP"

It looks like he is off to a great custom to me!
