Merry Christmas!

May we have peace on Earth and goodwill toward all Man.

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.
