I actually bought and built this more than two years ago, and I even sort-of-painted it. But yesterday, I noticed it sitting on my shelf and thought that it needed work, so I added a ton of accents and little red warning-stripes, and I probably went overboard on the weathering.
Finished work on my Sony MDR V700DJ Headphones......it was nerve wracking to dismantle 'em and sand off the paint before I started work on them, but a half dozen coats and some fancy work on weathering gave me the finish I wanted...EG: they look like a battered and bruised piece of old industrial iron. Also added some colour change LED wire around the earmuffs with a switch for fun. ...all in all...happy with the outcome
Lego APC (armoured personnel carrier) with a armoured gun (50 cal.) An new idea of this APC with the track that is look like the T-34 to T-90 (series of the russian tanks from WWII to today) Nothing new on this vehicle, just build some basic on it~ But hope you like it~
These three 1/35 kits are going on nine years or more older. From left to right.

Right. M4A3(76)W. It is not finished. I think I will take it with me in the truck when I go back on the road on Dec.2 It is an Italeri M4A3 with a turret from Tank Workshop. I based this model from a photo of the 752nd tank battalion in Italy,April of 1945.
Ah, man, my modular rifles have so quickly become my very favorites. I also like that right now, they show off very well the range of my builds and skills. Though neither is my very best paint job ever, they get the job done, and the builds are arguably the best I've ever done. These two rifles were born of exactly the same thought process: "Hey, these pistols are not up to par, let's glue stuff onto them and turn them into rfles being sure that one aspect of it is some form of bottle".
And so, from the far-flung cyberpunk future, Dietrich Graves' S.C. Avenger Modular Cartridge Rifle, and from the fictitious past, Professor Tobias Landgrave's Goldenrod Modular Atomic Cannon-Rifle. Based off of- and get ready cuz this is gonna blow your mind- a Switch Shot and a Nitefinder respectively. ^_^
Picture taken outside on the apartment deck for once. They always turn out looking better when I do it that way... dunno why I don't always do this. Impatience, probably.
The concept of this riverside House/Studio was inspired by Le Corbusier's "Architectural Promenade" which is basically the art of 'leading the eye' using architectural elements (look it up). axis and angles are the major focuses of this design.
