Work in Progress

Projects that are in the process of being built

Hover Tank HT-2

Project started in spring 2020

This was another quick project I did. I didn’t have a plan or anything particular in mind, I just threw together a bunch of shapes I thought worked good together. Parts used were a CPAP mask, a case for small screwdriver set, a candy package (choco-baby again!), and model parts.

I imagine ...

Turbo Racers

Project started in early 2019

I don’t have process photos for this project. It was something I was working on in between other projects.

I bought a correction tape dispenser at a ¥100 shop because I liked the shape. I used it (body), the lid of a dessert cup (body), the top of an electric toothbrush (engines), ...

Cloud Jumper

Project started in early 2019

This was very much inspired by the work of Ian McQue. I wanted to make a flying vehicle in his style. I wanted to make it a bit more rounded so I used a gatcha capsule for the basic shape. I built onto this with different model parts from tank kits and ...

Spice Miner

Project started in early 2019

I think I was inspired by the pods used for mining in Guardians of the Galaxy. I had the idea to make a little ship that would go out and collect spice(?), space gas(?). Who knows what.

I took two gatcha capsules and glued the larger halves together. I then cut an ...

Brute Speeder

Project Started in Summer 2019

I wanted to make a vehicle that looked both fast and bulky. Something that looked like it had weight. I had a design in mind for awhile. Using parts from the parts box, a pudding cup, the top of an air freshener, and my favorite candy packaging (choco-baby -large and small) ...

Behemoth Tank

Project started in Summer 2021

For a while now I’ve wanted to try a scratch-build using nothing but styrene plastic and model bits. So I decided now was the time.

I had an idea for a flying tug. Kinda dull, but I wanted to keep the design simple since I wouldn’t be able to rely on my ...


Started this project in spring 2022 after a long hiatus. We moved to a new house in late 2021 and that kept us busy for awhile.

I always like to get back into my hobby by making something. As always, I intended it to be a quick project but decided I might attempt to make this ...

Speeder Bike

I promised myself that I wouldn’t  start any new projects until I finished a few of the ones sitting on my desk.

But after being in a real funk I needed some motivation. I felt the urge to get back to the workbench and build something. I wanted to do a quick build, just a few ...

Candy package flyer

Built this one during the summer of 2018. It was my first project after moving to Japan. I didn’t have many supplies and model bits then, having left them in America, so I made due with what I had available: candy containers, plastic spoons, and lots of apoxie putty.

After posting this photo on different social ...

The 3 Amigos

The 3 Amigos. The BotHead Trilogy.

Made these guys from different bits and pieces. Things like caps, keyboard keys, plastic spoons, legos, and other bits.


Robot Bust

Summers in Japan are miserable hot and humid. Usually too humid to use the airbrush, so I busied myself making a lot of new projects.

This was a fun little project. I started it just to be doing something. I didn’t have any ideas in mind other than I wanted to make something. (more…)

Walker Tank

A fun and quick kit-bash I did last year. Based on the part I used it’s 1/35 scale. Took about a week to build…that’s really quick for me.
