Refuge from the Fantasy Flight Games forums purge, now joining DakkaDakka. I mainly dabble in X-wing and Star Wars related stuff though not exclusively. My main area of expertise is scratch building though I do consider myself a decent painter as well.

First to be posted here is my latest project, two scratch built 'realistic' CT-900 StarScavengers, built to an approximate X-wing scale (1/270). It is a ship that only otherwise exists as a computer model in the show where it originated from (Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures) or as a Lego model.

As it turns out, the commissioner of these two ships were actually one of the guys that produced and created the show in question so that was bloody awesome! Pretty much as close as official as you can get without the house of the mouse stamp of approval.

I figure I might show some of my previous work as well, not just the very recent stuff.

This I just call the Skink Firespray as the paint job was inspired by the very real Skilton's Skink lizard found on the west coast of North America. Last picture show the lizard in question.

Still older work but anyway, here's two AT-RT walkers that started their life as Wizard of the Coast models from their 2004 Star Wars game. The original models were awful with the sculpt rather lacking in details. More importantly the material used was a soft, almost rubbery, plastic. Let's count all the things I had to do to make them presentable:

Re-positioned the legs considerably so the models stands straighter and taller
Added some pistons to the legs
Added an antenna array
Moved the entire top pod forwards
Added footrests
Removed the original gun and mounting point
Replaced the gun mount with a new one with a magnet added
Scratch built / kitbashed all three gun options and of course magnetized them
Replaced the original pilot
Replacement pilot needed extensive work to legs, feet and arms in order to have the right position.

Just finished my latest project, two X-wing ships with an ocean theme. First is a YT-2400.

Great looking figures.

More DAKKA - the only true answer to any question.

Those are great looking tentacles, and a nice new element for space ships. Never seen anything quite like it.

Many people who commission me to paint for them are perfectly happy with a simpler paint job, no need for all that fancy highlighting. The small size and scale of X-wing models make this highly feasible and a tidy paint job with proper shading is really all that is needed for a decent looking model. Case in point, here's one of my latest projects, a Scurrgh H-6 bomber. It isn't terribly fancy but it certainly gets the job done.

As a side note this is a companion to two other ships I painted last year and all three share the same colours and scheme so I suspect the idea is to have a themed squad.

Already two months since I last posted anything? What dark hole did the time disappear into? And no I don't need an answer for that.

Here's a collection of three scratch built Arquitens-class light cruiser I've built over the years. These beasts are about 50 cm long and when I built the first one, there was almost no solid info on the ship type. They also earn the distinction of being too large to fit in my photo setup so the pictures are of worse quality than usual.

My latest project, Hera's A-wing from the Rebels show. It's certainly not the first I've painted and I doubt it will be the last.
