Anyone like Star Wars?

    A few years ago I kickstarted my modelling making again after quite some years away from the bench, a mate of mine was making a model helicopter and it inspired me.
    Looking online I discovered that the Japanese company Bandai did a range of Star Wars characters in 1/12th scale, as a kid those movies had awed and excited me beyond belief.

    So I thought I would show you some a those projects.
    I like to try and tell a story with the dioramas that I make, each has a name.
    The first photos are of a peice I called 'The Veteran', second is 'Don't Shoot', thirdly 'Jedha Rebels', fourth 'Put Him Down' and lastly 'The Scavenger'

    I hope that showing you them all at once like this is not too much, let me know if it is and I will post things seperately.

    Best wishes to you all,
    David

    Your weathering techniques are absolutely stunning. The attention to the smallest detail is stunning.

    Your level of detail and artistry would have George himself approve. I hope someone at the big, "D" would take at look at, "The Scavenger" and incorporate that into a time line and put it on the screen.
    The force is clearly with you!

    Truly amazing work... You could get a job as a prop maker with those type of skills.. Now if you would only do a SBS for us on your next piece...

    I'm glad to see that there are some Star Wars fans out there, thanks for all of your comments.
    Right now life and work are keeping me away from my work bench so my modelling output has been greatly reduced but when I can find time I will do my best to carry on.

    A Star Wars themed Christmas tree?
    Yes, I can see it now, X Wings and Tie Fighters flying in circles around it with Vader and Luke fighting it out at the top.

    Dave these are superb mate, love the idea behind them all and the execution of them is just spot on, can't believe you have not shared these before. Would love to do something similar one day.

    The (modelling) Force is strong with you... I did some figures years ago, for a couple of teammates who also have a strong "Force" presence...:).
