Star Wars: A Custom 1:12 Galaxy



So our little break is still in effect, but that doesn't mean that we are going to leave our readers high and dry. We may not be showcasing any finished projects at the moment, but that doesn't mean we can't share some of the things that our friends are up to in the meantime.

One exciting new development we'd love to tell you all about is a project some of our fellow customizers just launched over at Facebook. Star Wars: A Custom 1:12 Galaxy was founded by a community of like-minded customizers that provides an educational resource for 1:12 Star Wars custom figures and dioramas. They built a customizer's archive that is a full-blown “cookbook” chock-full of figure recipes, diorama blueprints, tutorial guides as well as a databank of materials that will allow you to search out and find the unique custom cast parts you need to complete any project. They encourage their members to share before, during and after photos of their work and discuss techniques that were used to make their Star Wars custom creations. The group provides support for all skill levels, including those eager to start their very first custom. 

They also encourage members to promote and sell their 1:12 custom work if they so choose. There it is okay to commission your work, sell completed custom figures, casts, parts and accessories. It's also okay to sell your excess fodder. Although it is important to note that this is not the group to scalp your collection under the pretense that a customizer may want it. 

Their customizer's archive is maintained and updated by their admin team and is easily accessible to fellow customizers. If you have a recipe, product or tutorial that you would like added to the archive, please contact an admin. They strive to include everything they find, because Star Wars customizing is neverending galaxy of possibilities!
