A Messerschmitt can go “pew pew pew”, right?



Bandit Rocket Bike: Progress & Test-Fit Pictures

Four episodes of Farscape on Netflix and no playing of GTA means progress!





Bandit Rocket-Cycle

Here’s a test fit from a few days ago, before I started painting legs. Again, this is my 1/20 “Borderlands”-inspired build.


Still Plodding Along

I’m starting to pick up the pace a bit on modeling (which is still slower than molasses). Got a few irons in the proverbial fire. If I can’t figure out how to post pictures here from the iPhone, please take a moment to weed through my twitter feed to find some recent project pictures.



Hey! Figured it out! The “Borg” is a war gaming figure. The torso is a 1/20 pit crew figure soon to be turned into a Borderlands-style bandit.

Still Alive… I Think.

It’s been over a year since I’ve updated this blog. Why? There’s a few very good reasons. I’ll list some: 

  1. Real life always takes priority over hobbies. In other words, “family comes first”. 
  2. There are MUCH BETTER modelers out there that have a lot more knowledge to impart than I do. Until I get going on airbrushing, I will continue to languish squarely in the “amateur” ranks.
  3. I really haven’t built that much, due to reason # 1.
  4. I’ve been updating what I have been building over on Twitter and my personal Facebook page. My twitter link is here in the blog. If you want to see some amazing stuff (not mine) on Facebook, look up “Mashinen Krieger” and “Industria Mechanika”.
  5. Compared to updating twitter, updating this blog tends to be a pain in the butt. Especially for as little as I seem to do. 
  6. GTA V.

So… I am still working on models here and there, but I’m not sure if you’ll see too many more posts on here in the short-to-medium term future. 

As always, thanks  for taking the time to read this. 

2012 in Review (a WordPress Annual Report)

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 11,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 18 years to get that many views.

Where Was I? Right…

My blog updates are sporadic and far between. If nothing else, you can always check my twitter feed. It certainly gets updated more often than my blog–but it’s a lot less model-centric.

ANYWAYS… What I’m currently working on: Another Maschinen Krieger scratch-build:
