I am still building, though not as much as of late. Lots going on in life. But since The Force Awakens premiered, we’ve been getting official lengths for some of the vehicles. Thus, I updated the scales for the Titaniums and the Hasbro Micro Machines. I also changed the TIE Fighter scaling for the up-teenth time. Maybe someday I’ll do a page explaining how I keep coming up with weird numbers and scales for them.
Something I have had trouble with is cutting the super-thin styrene sheets (.13 mm). You can’t buy strips this thin, and using a scoring blade tends to just bend the sheets. So, I used a paper-cutter. The trick was having something that held the entire sheet down so it doesn’t move. I was able to create several dozen strips of various sizes. Now, I can put them in my chopper and create super-thin raised panels for any project I’m working on.
Well, I bought several new toys from the upcoming movies last night, including 5 Titaniums and several of the new Micro Machines. I’ve been sharing my thoughts on Rebelscum.com, but I updated the scale lists for the Titaniums and added a new page for Micro Machines. Currently, I only have the measured sizes…no scales yet since I don’t know the actual sizes.
Among other models I’ve finished lately is a 1/48th scale Tamiya Hetzer in winter scheme.
