Hello from Michigan
Posted by Marktastrophe on Thursday, March 24, 2022 10:33 AM

Hello, I am a model builder living in Michigan, USA.
I love SciFi, I don't even need the Science to be that realistic, i just love it, lol.

I started in the hobby building cars as a child (poorly), breaking for about 10 or so years, getting into building gundams, and from there... everything gets a little fuzzy.

Here is my current Project WIP:

(Please excuse how this large kit ha made a mess of my workbench.)

And, where we have a couple of my recent projects that I'm happy with:

Welcome to the jungle!  I sure hope that Gundam has called in some support! Where the heck are Karen and Sanders?

I am indeed on Scale Model Addict!

Godzilla is approximately 16 inches tall, he and the Gundam are at 1:144.

Funny thing is at one point I had the whole 08th MS worth of these suits... but I had to hock some of the backlog because it was far too out of hand, ended up getting about $300 worth of grahpic novels and books. 

I'll likely post this build as soon as it's finished, in the home streach now. Smoke and final water effects are all that is left.
