Build: Sloat and Widener

Build: Sloat and Widener

Alright, so these two really seem fresh, right? At least as regards the Piececool Q Series. Sloat / Xiao Qiao (in the blue and purple dress) and Widener / Sun Shangxiang (in the red and gold dress) are the first female characters I’ve built (at least, as far as I can tell… I guess I’m […]

Build: Black Dragon

Build: Black Dragon

As promised, here is the reveal of the completed Black Dragon, by Piececool. I decided to continue my tradition of building a big dragon for my total build counts ending in 50. This here is my 350th build, which seems to have crunched up way too close to my 300th Metal Earth build. Guess I […]

Black Dragon, In Steps

Black Dragon, In Steps

So, life has thrown a curve ball at me. A little over a month ago, I did something (don’t really know what) that strained a muscle in my neck/shoulder. And, after about a month of just hoping it would work itself out, but then having it consistently re-tweaking itself, I went to the doctor. He […]

Build: Liberty Bell

Build: Liberty Bell

I didn’t intend for this build to be timely. In fact, it wasn’t until I told my wife what I was building, and she said something about it, that I realized the connection. And, to be honest, it’s kinda hard to feel patriotic right now. Our country is hurting, our people are divided and full […]

Build: Color X-Wing (with bonus mod)

Build: Color X-Wing (with bonus mod)

So, this may look a little different than you expect. First of all, it’s the color version of the model that is only sold in Disney Parks. And second, the S-foils are in closed position, which I’ve been meaning to do with an X-Wing model for some time. But… I did it a little different […]

Build: Deltoro and Pasley

Build: Deltoro and Pasley

Hope you are not tired of seeing these models, as these are my seventh and eighth, of a total of twelve. And I got all twelve. These two are also called Ma Chao and Zhou Yu, respectively. Deltoro / Ma Chao is the one with the staff, while Pasley / Zhou Yu wields the sword. […]

Build: Yeung and Howse

Build: Yeung and Howse

Also known as Zhao Zilong and Huang Zhong, respectively, these are the 5th and 6th models in the Piececool Q-Series. For clarification, Yeung is the one with the spear, Howse is the one with the bow and arrow. As you can probably guess, this is the third pair of Q-Series models that I’ve built. If […]

Build: Sweet Arlene (P-51D Mustang)

Build: Sweet Arlene (P-51D Mustang)

The problem with having a big backlog of models is that some things stay in there longer than you want them to. The Sweet Arlene is definitely one of those models. Of course, I also feel like I’m always saying that the model I’m building is one that’s been waiting to be built for a […]
