RIP : Stan Lee (1922 – 2018)

Stan Lee died today and the world seems smaller now. His works has been such a big influence in most people’s lives: who on this planet doesn’t know Captain America, Hulk, Thor (the comics version), Iron Man and Spider-Man?

So good night Stan Lee. In your immortal words: Excelsior!

Rest well.

 

Interlude : 1/87 Miniature Project

Over the last few days I’ve been helping my friend with a commercial project using 1/87 scale figures. Due to its commercial nature, I can’t show the final figures and pictures.

I can however, show this one figure I modified from a mountain climber into a guy in a bathrobe. It’s a rejected figure that I spent the most effort on. Oh well. 😀 Anyway, the idea was a man in a bathrobe stepping onto a weighing scale.

I trimmed the jacket and leggings, added parts of the robe with epoxy putty, chopped and swapped in a bare head and added painted on slippers. Then the whole figure was repainted. In the end though, a different figure concept was used.

And lastly, some non-spoilery behind-the-scenes photos I took…

Holiday over. Back on the saddle!

I’ve been away from the workbench due to a short holiday to the United Kingdom. Not much on the hobby front there but I did pop by a Warhammer shop. More soon after I write up a small article on it.

I’ll get back to finishing my Gustav as soon as I finish unpacking and laundry.

The need for speed!

Yep! I feel it! Although it’s too bad the Super Hornet is just not as sexy as the Tomcat.

My boy’s kit : Games Workshop Ultramarines Intercessor

This is actually my son’s third finished kit (the second one has broken to pieces before any photos have been taken) but is his first figure.

Bernard, the owner of M Workshop kindly gave my son this small set when we dropped by his shop earlier this year. The figure is painted primarily with Vallejo Game Color.

He has already started on his next kit, a 1/48 scale Bf109. Hopefully he’ll see this one through.
