happy new year and resolutions

Very happy new year and here are my new year resolutions. Finish these half done kits... For me I have such a bad habit of starting kitskits after I get inspired by looking at ma.k books or finished works from plamo or Mak forum.... Well we will see at the end of 2013.

Jerry and super Jerry

Just started fixing Jerry and Super Jerry... Not my favourite walker but it kinda grew on me. While fixing I found that the engine cover on the rear looked very familiar... and found that it was donated by the star wars AT AT kit.... nice find?

cockpit of falke 4

First cockpit of the falke which I am doing. Base coat of grey followed by decals for the intrument panel. The decals are thick and the one surrounding the right hand button had problems fitting. Manage to break one of it. After the decals dried I layered on two coats of gloss lacquer. Did two instrument panels and glued the better looking one to the falke. Next up the pilot...

Back in the game with Lunadiver!

I've been working on building kits the last few months, just that I've not gotten the time and energy to setup the spraying table for any serious painting. Finally back in the game!
Still working on my Falke No.4 and the Lunadiver No.1 As you can see, I preshaded the 1/35 Prowler and Fireball (black black stuff in the middle), decaled up the dashboard of the Falke (lower left) and sprayed bluish gray for the internal cockpit of the Falke.
Here's the Luadiver preshaded with pure black on primer.
After the preshade which was done in 1-2 days, I spent another 2 days slowly building up the base color which is a custom mix of white, yellow, green and grey.
The front.
The bottom.

Sorry for the long long absence

Sorry for the sudden and long long absence. One word: work. I suddenly became so busy due to a company wide deployment of a new ERP system. I was working 60hr workweeks, holidays, weekends... Coupled with the growing up of my toddler Elias Chin... I did get a bit depressed as model making stopped completely for a few months. Everything was just chucked into my robot room. I am angry that I did not even get to take part in the local model convention and meets. Well now the worst is almost over, I am slowly picking up my life and the hobby again. Will post real soon with something new. Will
