My friend gave me link to this intresting site.
So allow me to show some my works, which theme I suppose, correlates with intrests of this community  ^_^



This 1: 35 scale steam gear was made from different parts of classic tanks - M1, BT, Tiger plus plane engine )) which were combined in random way, glued and painted. For some ribbons on surface I used "magical" amulets  :embarrased:

I really dig this model. Its a very inventive kitbash and has a good paint job. Your weathering and paint chips are a little harsh but its not too bad. Overall nice work decoy.

Best part used: Lego bionicle foot :lol:

Very nicely done. At first I thought this was some sort of warhammer build, but better. Nice work!

Cool, nice job!!! If you had not told us that it is a 1/35 scale model, I would have thought that it was a lead miniature.


You did a great job painting the model, very cool.  8) :-)

For weathering and painting tutorials just check around the board. Folks like Mr. Fichtenmayer, Luca, Machinen Krueger or Lincoln Wright, Braxat... the list goes on and on.

Hey, whats that supposed to mean? :P

This is one of those builds that actually made me say 'Woah' - and that doesn't happen too often.  Great build!

That's a really cool idea, it's looks like a fairly simple idea, yet it very well orchestrated. First thing I thought of when I saw the eye was a tontie from Eyezmaze.com. Personally, I think the rust and weathering looks fine, almost like when you go out into BFE and you see a john deer that has been retired in a yard for 20 years. But I'm a sucker for the look of old rusted machines.

This is really cool! The color scheme works so well with the shape of the mech, it makes it fell really natural.

It reminds me alot of the little robots from the movie "batteries not included" for some reason.

Very creative! The scheme is very fitting for the mech! Lovely highlight of tainted gold around the 'eye' :)
I wished to try something like this one day.
