    Modification/Scratch building/Model kit repair thread.

    This thread will be for anything that falls under one of these three descriptions. for anyone to ask questions and discuss techniques or trouble shoot. basically anything you do to a kit that isn't surface prep or painting(that i can think of right now anyways). stuff like panel line scribing, kit bashing, LED installation, repairing broken parts, ect.

    here is some helpful stuff.

    Re: Modification/Scratch building/Model kit repair thread.

    Just what I was looking for.

    I'm working on a kitbash.....trying to figure out how to make or get some kind of articulated claw hand roughly hg size.

    Also, has anyone here scratch built wings or a tail for hg? Recommendations?

    My first completed assembled kit and i am at a roadblock on the customization.

    Re: Modification/Scratch building/Model kit repair thread.

    not sure about wings or a tail but scratch building a claw hand like the Banshee has would not be to hard. i would find some thick pla-plate and some pins. im no scratch building expert but i think the first thing you need to do is figure out dimensions of the final product and come up with exactly what you want it to look like. if you can draw any at all. drawing a picture even just a basic on will help you come up with an over all look and how it will articulate.

    No banshee has no claw hand it's just a weapon attachment. Barbatos comes with an additional bonus arm, I am converting it to a field repair after battle damage idea that looks all chop shopped. I have the plans for the arm but want to do a rough looking claw hand. Think z'gok e just hand not full arm.

    Double negative... Does that mean that every banshee has a claw hand?
    Sorry, I'll go be a prick somewhere else.

    Oh well. What ever happens, happens.

    Re: Modification/Scratch building/Model kit repair thread.

    I wasn't trying to be rude, I was just saying that the hand I meant was not like a weapon but like a real hand. The only picks I can post are torn apart kits awaiting paint and bashing. Thinking I may just get an epyon for the wings and tail if I can't figure something out. As far as the hand....think that seven elements machine from code guess(?) Like? Lol still in the planning phase.

    Re: Modification/Scratch building/Model kit repair thread.

    I was just gonna say, maybe use a hand from a nightmare model kit. I remember a guy making his own claw like that by cutting out little blades from styrene strips and gluing them to the fingers on his astray.

    Re: Modification/Scratch building/Model kit repair thread.

    Anyone have the Scratchbuild revolution book? I've hard of a technique in it for making scratch built parts, but don't want to pay $40 just for that technique.
