I've been working on building a FASA BATTLEDROIDS collection. Part of that is building up a set of the small plastic Nichimo and Nitto mecha models that FASA and Twentieth Century Imports pushed for use with the games. My plan is to paint & mod them a bit differently from the anime-accurate buildups I would usually do, and skew them a bit toward FASA's art design at the time. Here's the first: a "Wasp". This is the Nichimo 1/200 scale MACROSS VF-1S Variable Valkyrie Battroid kit, with some minor assembly modifications and the addition of a SRM-2 launcher kitbashed from another kit in the series.

My Caverns of Doom dragon (split-body type). This is one of three I've completed, although the other two (both body styles) are out on loan.

Here are the Famous Monsters repops I got from Michael. Overall, they look great. The metal is much nicer than the old lead. However, it is very rigid, so you can't really bend it. The molds are in excellent shape. Although the base of the guy with the lantern & axe is a bit short-shot. There is also a bit of a pit near the feet of a couple of the humans, and a couple of odd bits around the backs of the legs that could use some filling. Overall, though, clean the seams and you're pretty much ready to go! I've only cleaned & primed a few so far.

I obtained this resin (I think!) cast piece from a collector near Dallas, TX. Should be very recognizable from the Paint & Play box graphics!

Nice to see you've found a fun handle in your latest pieces, to keep them from becoming a 'grind'.   I appreciate seeing your self-analysis on the face work, since I consider your works' faces & skin tones to be so inspiring!

Wow!  I'm really amazed!  Your work is inspiring, and your painted KD samples were one of the things that enticed me into the property.  Having an actual example of your work in my collection will be a treasure.  Thank you!

Holy Grails & ASTRO PLAN 太空历险记/星原战记
Just about a year without a blog post.  Oh, well... No model kits, model rockets or dinosaurs.  A change in employment and lots of business work & challenges have kept me limited primarily to just buying toys, and fixing rather worn & broken ones that were ...
