  1. It's a sweet craft for sure. I managed to snag a couple of incomplete copies fairly cheaply on Ebay a while back, and slowy accumulated the ancillary parts to get them back into shape. I plan to customise at least one into a modern-day Navy paintscheme(After filling in all the panel gaps and re-scribing them). There's one on Ebay right now with no bids(Although it has a while to go...). Bar.
  2. I wonder what held this one up? It looks beautiful... Bar.
  3. Are they being discounted, or are they still at full retail? Bar.
  4. Well, first of all, well done! I have long liked the idea of the DragonHawk as a Halo munitions deployment dropship(Just for hardware, as opposed to the troop capability of the Pelican). And also: You won't regret geting into Halo. Start with The Fall Of Reach. And you may not have seen my work on the subject, but i built a conversion template to make the DH a single seater for 3 3/4. I don't want to thread-jack, though, so if you drop me an e-mail to vipermark7 at googlemail.com, i can send you the template and some build up pics(It's an easy build. Two hours tops, no dremel required...). Bar.
  5. IIRC, it was around the $10 mark as well. Not sure though. It's ok. I was just curious. Bar.
  6. What kind of price point was on the marked down parachute Dukes? Bar.
  7. Sweet. Looks very good. Thanks for the link. Bar.
  8. Hydrospan, eh? And how does it work, if you don't mind me asking? Bar.
  9. How did you upsize it? And would it not have been easier to re-sculpt new armour? Forgive my ignorance. I have no idea how you could possibly upscale a 2" Spartan...
  10. Looking good. Remind me again how you did the sculpting? And what did you use for the helmet? Bar.
  11. Good build. I was once in a TRU here in Scotland, and they were selling those choppers off for $10 each.
  12. If it were a Cobra vehicle, it'd be bright red, with a gigantic laser gun on the top... It would never work as a cobra vehicle, though. Too.... familiar....(As mentioned above, Cobra only tends to use bespoke military hardware). Now, if it was a half-track version...(Or maybe one which had only tanktracks, instead of wheels, maybe it would work then...). Bar.
  13. I paid about $100 each for the F-18, and F-16. Bar.
  14. Holy moses! What the hell are those???!?!?!?!?
  15. You're kidding, right???!?!?!?! $20? For real? And they had lots in stock?(Or were they clearing the last one or two from the shelves before christmas?) Bar.
  16. I don't know... It makes it look a lot more impressively sized for the smaller figures. Didn't they change the seat size? And remember, all these toys are now grown with SLA technology(You can usually see the layer breakdown on the rear of parts), so all you need are CG blueprint meshes, tell the machine what scale you want the print-out, and it will make the parts smaller or larger. Bar.
  17. Standard modelling glue. It's called liquid poly here in the UK, but it's only short for "Polystyrene cement". I believe the US leading brand is Tenax? It always depends on what you're trying to do, but if you are intending to build up more structure, i always recommend cutting a sheet of 20 or 30 thou styrene, and skinning the area of the toy to be built up first(And gluing this layer to the toy with Super glue). Then attach all subsequent layers of styrene to the first layer. For some reason, i never get a good bond with liquid poly directly on the toy. It'll cure, but not properly cement the joint. That's why the super glue for the first layer(And use Zip-Kicker for a super-strong layer of adhesive). As i say, it all depends on what you're trying to achieve. You can PM me if you want to let me see details of what you have in mind. Bar.
  18. Those look very nice. Thanks for the pics. Bar.
  19. Which would only happen if SS had a 60 a day habit of cigarettes every day since 1984... @loll@
  20. Not at all. I was asked to make this, and i know there are lots of folks out there who wanted this as a 3 3/4 ship to begin with. All it needs now is a folding ladder(Can anyone else tell me how the little guys are supposed to get into it?).
  21. Thanks guys. As i say, this was made for another forum member, but i know a lot of folks were moaning about the fact it takes a lot to alter the existing tub, so the attached template is all the hard work done for you already. The detailing i added(Like the instrument detail, and the ejection handles), were just to whow what could be done if you have an extra ten minutes to spare on the build. I personally like the little scale the ship is originally, but i appreciate not everyone does. Once again, thanks for the comments. Bar.
  22. Anybody want to pick a couple up for me whilst they are on sale?(I'm 3000 miles away, and they don't sell S6 here...) I'm very trustworthy. Bar.
  23. I love the new artwork. Thanks for the link. I was also impressed by the review of the FireBat(It's what made me get my first one so i could customise it). Always an inspiration. Bar.
  24. That makes sense to me. All of it. Kudos. Bar.
  25. I don't know if this will interest anyone here, but here goes: I was asked to do this by a member of another forum. I roughed out a card master pattern: Made a template: And then did the final build: Total time about six hours on and off. The template is here in case anyone else wants to have a go(If you print the image out on A4 paper, it should be the correct size). Try it out with paper first before cutting card or styrene. Bar.
