Dear All

Ribbons have been awarded. Let me know if I missed somebody?

We finished with 14 complete builds - some really diverse and beautiful builds. Exactly what this campaign is about.

Thanks to all for participating.

Excellent and subtle preshading on the Zaku II. The red really makes the Gundam stand out.

Great build, Lap man! Very nice finish and look. Red is not an easy color to work with and Weather in the right Way.

Looking forward to see your build in Sci-Fi V once we get started.

Nice progress, Lap man.

Shell, sorry to hear about your arm. Hope you recover fully soon. If you sign up for Sci-Fi V, you can use any unfinished build from previous Sci-Fi campaigns - even if it is more than 25% done. But the build has to be something unfinished from previous Sci-Fi campaigns.

Won't make it; compressed nerve was actually the rotator cuff and until I get a steroid shot into the shoulder joint I can't lift my arm above my waist. I still have a TIE I could do for Sci-Fi V, or I could pick up one of the 1/1000 Polar Arts Trek ships. I have Y-wing but it is for the Bandai campaign.

Thanks Jesper, I'll be interested in this one too. There are several projects that might be perfect for the next campaign.

March sounds good.

I have several SciFi related builds planned for this year. I'll save one or two of my Vampire Alien Ladies builds for the campaign. I'll go more into details when the official threads goes up....which means I still am thinking on a few details.

I have not set a date for Sci-Fi V yet - how does 1st March sound and then run for 6 months?

Then people can get their stash sorted and decide on something to build. As usual previous unfinished builds from Sci-Fi I to IV are allowed.

Has a start date been decided upon for SciFi V?

I've got my stuff already for that one. Might even do two builds for real this time.



I'd go for a Sci-Fi V myself. It's nice to belong to a Sci-Fi community with a common build interest and goal.

Perhaps a longer timeframe deadline would be a good idea?

Don't think I will make it even with the extension. Somehow I've managed to compress a nerve in my shoulder and the pain is making using my left arm difficult. I was just getting ready to start the exterior painting.

We'll see if things improve by the weekend.

Peter, that looks great! The screen masking worked very well on the gun and the helmet. How was the quality of the casting?

I've looked at some of the 'crew' figures, musicians??, and passed becasue I'm rubbish at faces, but this one could be in my wheelhouse.



Thanks! I airbrushed thinned Vallejo AIR for the first time and I believe that Gunze Sanyo straight from the bottle would have produced better pixels as the AIR was a bit runny.

Casting quality was very good. The 1/20 Love Love Garden (LLG) figures are "beefy" compared to the slender and petite Brickworks figures. Best of all, LLG figures are proportional and not cartoonish. Most LLG figures display an "organic look" to their uniform as that is the sculptor's style.

"Dragon Arms" has the helmet visor that can be glued on over the helmet, taken off, or used to cover the full face. I left it up to show some skin.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the Ma.K Universe, but I sure do like the scale of 1/20 figures.

Hi guys

No problem. I will extent the campaign until 15th January. I will award ribbons after that.

Remember to upload your photos to the campaign folder.

I could use a few more days myself. The first set of lights was bad so I had to wait on a replacement, then an impromptu family trip to New York City during the worst traffic of the year ate up eight days of bench time. Got a cold on top of that. I am actually very close to done; just have to wire up the cockpit and seal it up and then I can paint the exterior.

No luck to finish in time, I request for a two weeks extension to finish my model.
