Droids, part 3 - additional kits

by brae  

Continuing work on the droids. There are additional Bandai kits besides the two kits I have of BB-8 with R2-D2 and BB-8 with D-0, but those are the only ones I plan to build. However, during my scouting around, I ran into two fan made kits for Gonk and MSE (mouse droid) and Chopper by JPG Productions. I was lucky they were still available.

These are cast resin models, which I've never worked with before.

There are decals and other parts to finish as shown.

Of course, you can always upgrade from a basic kit, as I will do. :] I found some excellent examples not only on the JPG page but also other sites, most notably Action Figure Toronto. There are tutorials for Gonk and Mouse, and Chopper, which will help immensely. There's another Chopper tutorial on The Modelling News. All great inspiration. But, back into the boxes they go as I continue where I left off.
