Re: models... revell snap-tite

 

There are snap together models on the market too. No glue required.

Great stuff. This shit still has me mad interested. But I gotta get back into drawing before I even delve into stuff like this.

 

Currently redesigning Mazinger Z as a get-back-into-the-game project. It's really, really fucking hard, cause Mazinger was a fairly stupid looking robot (awesome nonetheless).

Re: Mazinger Z

 

you're a designer on this project?

or are you customizeing a model kit of it?

if toy and anime robot design is you job, then focus on that, man.

make lots of money, then retire.

Then you can make models on a tropical beach with your toes in warm sand, drinking a Singha.

oh that would be the life.

Got any pictures? post em if you have some. We want to see that plastic.

Military armor, vehicles, and figures is my primary interest too.

anyone collect trains? i used to - but kind of got out of it when i went to college. now that im older i want to get back into it. gonna start buing little by little and eventually get my layout hooked up. trying to decide between O and HO. you can fit more HO in a given space, but you can do pieces on O cars much easier, and when i really get nerded out im gonna weather the pieces and everything. my plan is to create a model of the place where i bench freights.

I would suggest HO, for the reasons you already stated. Your idea of a layout of your own yard is choice. Do it. There is another thread regarding model trains here, check it out. Most of those are HO. Then check out Mellow Mike's HO trains here.

I did a shitty Tamika or whatever Bradley IFV and started on a Polish T-55, never finished it.

TAMIYA, and the Polish T-55, was probably an ESCI. Both in 1/35 scale.

Post a couple pictures of the progress, then the finished pics.

Nah they were actually both Tamiya. I guess later tonight when i've ran out of things to do on the computer i'll take pics and upload em. T-55's not done yet though. I only put the chassis together and that's it. it's actually a really good kit, I just don't have the skill and tools.
