Admiral Zaarin Tie Advanced V1

The new (8th) edition of Warhammer 40k has demanded quite a lot of my attention lately. Updating and adding some new stuff to one of my armies in preparation for a big tournament takes time! However I've still managed to sneak in some X-wing painting.

Building a Phantom shuttle with folded wings

Sometimes you just have to discard an idea before it takes up too much of your time. In the case of the Phantom shuttle I recently modified, this was very much the case.

Building a VCX-100 docking bay

I'm certainly not the first person to ever mod a VCX-100 to have a docking bay for its shuttle. Heck there are even 3D printed parts to slot in. However most people don't need to make room for a full sized Phantom as well.

Commission: 'Phantom' Attack Shuttle with folded wings

When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Or in this case, build a Phantom Attack shuttle with folded wings.






Commission: Improved VCX-100 'Ghost' with shuttle docking mod

I can already hear someone asking; Why have I uploaded pictures of an unpainted VCX-100 'Ghost'? And it is indeed true that it has not been repainted. However, that does not mean it is unchanged. Oh no, this baby may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts.

Commission: Hera's A-wing

It's the return of Hera Syndulla with yet another A-wing painted in her personal colours. Star Wars Rebels has really given us painters and modelers some fresh material to work with.

Commission repair: Prototype B-wing

Finally a new project to show off and it's not even new. Yeah, I'm kinda re-using old stuff here by once again showing the first prototype B-wing I converted and painted. And yet, there is a perfectly reasonable explanation for everything.

Commission: Completed ARMD-class Space Carriers

Normally when I publish pictures of a completed model, I try to get a number of high definition shots taken from several angles for you to enjoy. Well the ARMD-carriers proved yet again to be different.





Commission: Building ARMD-class Space Carriers

The life of a scratch builder can be an odd one. I sometimes get rather strange requests and I have made a few of them a reality. However building new parts for an old toy from the eighties is so far the strangest project I've undertaken!

Painting an Arquitens-class light cruiser Mk2

Painting the Arquitens Mk2 turned out to be surprisingly similar to painting the first ship. And not only because it is basically the same model.
