Custom Tanaka/Lagerfeld toys

I loved Shin Tanaka's New work he did for Karl Lagerfeld's Paris shop so had decided to do a couple of customs based on the video promo for the show, pictures 3 and 4 are of the the chibby that was available for download from the main website but hope you all like the rest ^__^....

Halloween Zombietus

I came across Nick Knite's template for his Cactus toy which he had sent me quite a while ago and wanted to do something with it for Halloween and I came up with this Zombie/Cactus fellow, hope you all like it and the template is available on Nick's website with a number of other great Halloween toys to download also, you'll find them at http://www.nickknite.com/blog/?p=1796

Halloween Goodies

Well Halloween will be upon us soon, does not seem that long ago since the last one? Anyway I had got these goody bags off of the canon paper craft site () a couple of years ago now, they are still available to download though, and since I built the pumpkin teddy ones last year thought I would switch and make these ones this year, Margaret's even filled them already for the kids ^__^

Gundam Boxzet

I have always loved the Boxzet toys and built the first one a good while back (think it was the super robot one) and whilst looking for something to build came across a folder with all the Boxzet toys and the RX-78-2 Gundam by Bymanstudio caught my eye so I had to build it. Love the design it also came with a small model box containing instructions and model pieces sheets which I think was quite clever..

Sword impulse Gundam

Well since I am hovering between projects at the moment I basically went through my files and just picked something at random and I came across the "Sword Impulse" Gundam from Jules over at . I am only building the head of this toy as I don't really want to build the whole thing, I just love the designs of the heads..

BearBearQ project

Well I managed to finish off my custom BearBearQ toy quite a few days ago, it actually took me longer to find and make the net for it (which is made of card and a piece of netting from a garlic bulb packaging). The design is based very loosely around M.C.Escher's butterflies print, I was going to cover the whole of the toy but then decided to make it a "swirling" pattern instead, which turned out better than I thought it would.
Anyway it was my first attempt at painting so let me know how I got on as this time...please. ^__^

Sulaco Project

Well I have finally finished the Sulaco project and I am very pleased at how it came out. I have made a couple of stands for it to sit on resting on the antenna array sticking out from the bottom of the craft and have made a small plaque with details of what/where things are on the ship.

I finished this over a week ago now but have tried to go onto further projects not with much success though, maybe i need to take a small break in paper modelling. I have had a BearBearQ DIY vinyl toy for a few years now so it might be time to paint that up for a change and then get back down to business.

I have quite a few ideas for my own design in paper toys so that will be my next project once i have finished the vinyl toy...

New pictures of Sulaco project

I took some photos a while back but had not managed to get them up on here until now. The project i am working on is a model of the Sulaco from the aliens movie, a space marines ship created by that great Czech paper modeller Jan R√ľkr, who has created quite a few sci-fi models. I think it was the overall size of the project that interested me, more of a challenge and this will be the last large scale model that i will be building, he says hopefully. So here's some pics of the build so far, I only have the tail/engine section to build now so the length will be another 1/3 added on to what i have already...

Mystery Project

Been a bit quite lately. Have been trying to sort out my computer as I have too many hard drives (5 of them) about 4tb of data which is in a bit of a mess so I have been trying to go through it all to see what I can throw out!! In the meantime I have been doing another project and am about half way though now and the only clue I can give is that it is 5 1/2 feet long and blue grey in color!! here's a couple of teaser shots!!

Hope you have enjoyed my collection of budogs, I do still have another 5 to post but I could not wait any longer to get this up on my site,plus they are only animal ones (monkey, gorilla, crane, onikawi rail (not sure on that) and a duck) But i will add these onto the collection when I get around to releasing the whole collection, so once again thanks for looking!! ^__^
