From the Back of the Shelf: Ma.K Raptor

Another old kit which I’ve never posted about, the 1:16 scale Ma.K. Raptor.  This is a different scale to the normal Ma.K. kits which are 1:20 (so slightly smaller than this).  This one is all resin and at the time of innocence that I got this (from eBay) it hadn’t crossed my mind that it would be anything odd.  Well turns out this is a recast of an original which seemed to only be available at Wonderfest in Japan.

From the Back of the Shelf: Babylon 5 Starfury

Starting to do some random posts of old builds and starting with the long since discontinued Revell Starfury which featured in the Babylon 5 series.

These are really nice kits and Revell released an initial version and then a limited version which featured more, and different, wing art.

For my first one I decided to do something a bit different and based it on a post which was seen in the background of the Head of Security’s office (Garibaldi for anyone who remembers it).  This was of Daffy Duck.

Rocket and Groot

So, still prevaricating on finishing Igor and got distracted again.  This time by the Guardians of the Galaxy kits.

Picked this one up off eBay for a decent price because the box had been damaged (like I care, it’s already been thrown out).  It is the 1:9 scale version from Dragon.  There is a larger scale version of Rocket but this one has the full sized Groot and is in scale with the other Dragon kits.
