Citadel XV95 Ghostkeel Battlesuit
This is a kit I have wanted to build for quite some time! It has the unique Tau white/gray/black with a blaze of red scheme that I love, and plenty of angles, greeblies, and bits to weather to my hearts content. A special thanks to patron Chris Bernique for supplying me with this kit!
Nitto Ma. K Jerry
The Jerry has a cool appeal to me – it’s as if Star Wars dropped in on the Maschinen Krieger universe. Or maybe it’s the other way around. Either way, this is a cool looking little stompy. It does take a little love and patience, but the result will be worth it!

Bandai Star Wars Rogue One Shoretrooper
This 1/12th scale kit is from Rogue One, part of the Star Wars universe. In many ways it builds like a Gundam kit, but the large scale really offers some great detailing and weathering opportunities without so much concern for being “scale appropriate”. Plus… it’s Star Wars stuff! How can you go wrong? 🙂
Bandai Gundam Bael
Bandai’s 1/100 Gundam Bael is from the Iron Blooded Orphans anime. The 1/100 scale mobile suits from this series are a unique Full Frame Mechanics design. They have a full frame, like a Master Grade kit, but the assembly and design are a bit simpler. The armor is very detailed, and articulation good. In my opinion, they’re the best of all Gunpla worlds!
Citadel Space Marine Rhino
The Space Marine Rhino is part of Citadel’s Warhammer 40K tabletop game. Though designed for gaming, these kits are wonderful as standalone models. The Rhino kit offers plenty of options and variants, and is quite detailed. Great for weathering!
