My completed 1/4 Scale Screamin Models.
« on: February 28, 2006, 02:50 PM »
Hi, this is my first post its a little long because I want to make an effort with my first post... I apologise in advance for boring you all... you could always just scip to the pictures.

I came across this range purely by accident. I bought a joblot of what could be described as Star Wars junk from ebay. The main auction was for a Stormtrooper diorama... it was the 1/4 scale stormie coming through a door.... the door was made from white melamine... its now in the bin.
However the models were quite impressive and had potential but were poorly painted stormie was matt white etc, some had parts missing (chewies crossbow for example is scrathc built from parts I found) while others had just fell apart on there way too me.
I repainted all of them I'm fairly happy with the out come allthough I think I may buy some material and give the tusken raider a material cloke rather than the plastic one. So far completed is the Tusken, Stormie, C3PO and chewie. The R2D2 is actually a bubblebath I bought years ago which just happens to be roughly the correct scale, I intend on weathering this a little eventually.
I'm eventually going to build stands for them all so they fit in with the sideshow statues I'm going to build 3po and R2 on a sand style base (Like sideshow Luke) and have r2 on a slightly higher hill of sand to mask the very slight scale difference.
A customised screamin Darth Vader came with the lot but after doing the best I could with it I've decided it just doesnt look right so I bought a new kit off ebay and I'm going to build it the way it should have been, I also have a Yoda and Boba Fett to build to go with these. I'll have quite an impressive 1/4 scale collection once there done as I have the Sideshow Luke and I'm hoping to add the Han to my collection when I see it on ebay at the right price (I got Luke for 80gbp it retails for 150-200gbp over here)

Anyway I'll stop boring you with my stories heres the pics:

Also heres a pic of the Vader. I intend on giving this another coat of Matt paint on the parts that should be cloth (it dried gloss for some reason last time) and placing this on Ebay shortly. The chest plate isnt correct it didnt come with one but I found this piece of vinyl in the box and it looks ok as a chest plate I was going to scratch build one but like I say I've bought a new kit so I'm going to leave this as it is. Oh and the cloth cape is covering a huge hole in back from where its been hacked apart to change the stance.

I don't know about the statues, but I dig that 'vintage' Maul at the base of Vader!

Nice work Kirk.  It's such a satysfying feeling to complete a collection of something, especially in an area that many people may not even collect.

I'd also like to know a little more about that "vintage" Maul.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

I'm hoping to get a good collection of 1/4 scale statues eventually. Anyone know of any good ways of getting that gold plated look? The paint I used on 3po is the best I could find.

Its my first attempt at a 3.75 custom, only took around 10 minutes.
Nothing special really although it is a little different to the usual vintage Mauls you see as it has a telscopic saber. I've got a couple of spare repro luke jedi/bespin sabers which I'm going to glue together to make a double bladed saber and then paint them red. Also need to do something about the other hand so he can hold them.





Simple formula vintage jedi luke with vintage vader arms, vintage vader cape and a ep1 maul head.

Cool Maul!

I might have to make one to put on a custom card...
