WIP : Bandai Stormtrooper Pt. 1

Time for a more relaxed build after the F-86 I think. As far as I know, Bandai has never had bad fitting kits, this one is no exception. The neck is a bit loose and I messed up slightly on the right shoulder pad so now it falls off easily but all in all, very …...

WIP : 1/48 Bandai Snowspeeder Pt. 2

The interior of the cockpit was simply sprayed Black Grey and then given a light drybrush of Light Grey. Bandai includes decals that covers most of the interior but I decided against using them.

WIP : 1/48 Bandai Snowspeeder Pt. 1

The plan is to learn weathering with this build as Star Wars vehicles frankly don’t look very good pristine (the prequels nonewithstanding).

WIP : Games Workshop Space Marine Pt. 3

The box comes with a set of decals with a ton of choices of markings. I decided to go with an arrow on the right shoulder and the Ultramarines insignia on the left. To prep for them I brushed on some Future. Meantime, I painted the Purity Seal with Transparent Red on top of Foundation …...

WIP : Games Workshop Space Marine Pt. 2

I decided to depict a Space Marine from the Ultramarines chapter which means an overall blue color scheme. Painting begins with a black undercoat. I’m using AK Interactive Black Primer for this. Then it’s spraying Vallejo Foundation White on the areas where logically would be the brightest. It’s also here that I fixed...

WIP : Games Workshop Space Marine Pt. 1
