Showcase / Klingon Bird of Prey 1/2500

So it isn't technically a mecha but I figure it's close enough.

A favorite of mine since child hood. Quick little build, but it gave me some problems. AMT models are an entirely different beast compared to the precision of Bandi kits. But over all I'm rather happy with this guy. 

Feedback appreciated.

Alright so I found a solution, a tried and true one. Adding some random bits!

So it's been awhile since I posted anything of note here. I haven't been slacking I've just been more focused on painting miniatures than model kits. But I recently picked up a few Star Trek kits I had once had as a kid, and decided to try my hand at them now that I have some skill. Now this isn't a giant robot but I figure it's close enough to a mecha to count.

It's a small kit and it's apparent that Bandi kits have spoiled me.

It went together well enough.

But there are some problems with the kit. Mainly these huge holes through the kit.

so I decided I needed to modify the kit a bit. Added a bit ribbed styrene to cover the holes in the front.   

Now just I just need to figure out how I'm going to close up the holes in the back.

Oof, tough crowd!

I've upgraded this build with a pilot in two poses, from the Builders Parts.

Pose 1 "Suiting Up:"

Pose 2 "Victory at Kilimanjaro"


If you look closely the pilot is wearing a Karaba-inspired black jacket with a hint of the EF Army logo over the left breast; the head is painted (I felt sculpting was unnecessary) to resemble the blue EFSF Torrington Base pilot helmet from Unicorn. The kneeling figure had his hand slightly reposed; the flag is made from a staple and a folded printout of the EF flag.

^Thank you very much! Still more to come :D

Progress on the scaled armour front and a big sword. Will only be doing the scales on the right arm and I'm working at modding the destiny's shield a little bit too.

The last commission I did (the Zeta 2.0) like I mentioned in its thread was stolen/misplaced in shipping and the client never got it, so he wanted another kit done in a similar color scheme.

He was pretty lax about seamlines and since this is a fairly new kit the ones it did have were hidden fairly well.

WIP can be found here

So I've been working at this for the last week, I've kind of given myself a due date of May 24th, because I would really like to take this one to a hobby show that following weekend.

That said I've got some plans for this one, I've grown to dislike the massive backpack that is so common in SEED so I'm going without wings for this one and I'd like change the proportions a little bit here and there. I'm getting a little bit of inspiration from the Barbatos/Demon fan-art variation of the Destiny that floats around all the time.

So Destiny has clown shoes, so I chopped them 3mm shorter and I intend to add some claws to wrap up the feet. From there I would like to extend the fore-arms by a little bit. I've had it in may head that I would try doing scaled armour again as well.
