Mecha Plamo Display / Ma.K. Oskar "Lost"
« on: July 17, 2018, 09:16:11 AM »
Finally dipped a toe into the Ma.K. pond. A Strahl forces SK362 Panzer Spahwagen Oskar automated reconnaissance hover tank. Iíve called it ďLostĒ as itís aimlessly wandering a wasteland somewhere due to a communications breakdown, slowly rusting away due to the acid rain.

Paints were mostly Gunze with a bit of Tamiya and Vallejo. Weathering was done mainly with Vallejo pigments and AK Interactive washes with a final brush over with various Tamiya makeup kits. The dust from under the skirts was done using fish tank filter wool with Vallejo pigments rubbed into it. Thanks for looking and I hope itís not too hard on the eyes.

Pilot's Rec Room / GW 40K Taurox half track
« on: July 04, 2018, 09:09:56 AM »
Something a bit different. Gunpla is a bit on the nose for me at the moment so I thought I'd have a go at one of the ugliest kits in 40K, the Taurox. Picked it at a swap meet a month or so ago for a good price (thankfully  ;) ) and them went and spent about as much again on bitz  ::)

The wheels were some resin ones I picked cheap from a sale somewhere and most the extras came from some bloke on ebay that breaks up kits. It's not built to the rules as I don't play anymore so I decided to use as many weapons in the box as possible.

All hand painted with Tamiya mostly and Gunze for the figures of which I know suck so don't look at them too long and it'll be okay :-). The first pic is what it's supposed to look like and the last few are of the cabin before the lid went on. Hope it's not too hard on the eyes  :)

Pilot's Rec Room / 1/48 Tamiya Elefant
« on: April 16, 2018, 10:49:57 PM »
What's this? Another tank. Yep my break from Gunpla is still going strong.

Built this OOB using the sticker set that Tamiya offer as an add on for the zimmerit (the lumpy finish for all you non armour types  ;) ) Paints are Gunze with AK & Vallejo for the the weathering. I used some Wilder Earth Texture for the first time and am impressed. Stays where you put it and looks fairly realistic once dried.

Pilot's Rec Room / 48 Ford Coupe "Moonshine Express"
« on: March 29, 2018, 03:06:24 PM »
After 25+ years of sci-fi, itís tanks, planes and now cars. What next? Ships?

In my late teens I used to make cars by the truck load but havenít touched one since around 1980. Nothingís changed kit wise, this Revell 48 Ford Coupe is just as crappy as they were back then. Anyway enough reminiscing and back to the model.

ďWell my nameís John Lee Pettimore, same as my Daddy and his Daddy before.Ē

The opening lines of one of my all-time favourite songs, Copperhead Road. Whilst I like to look at nice shiny cars I couldnít make one in a million years so what could I make with my limited skills but a moonshine runner and what better scenario than Copperhead Road. Yeah I know itís not a Dodge but the 48 Ford is pretty close shape wise and itís all I could find. The kit is by Revell, itís the two in one Police/Deluxe kit. Pretty ho-hum compared to todayís kits. I had a bit of a fiddle with the suspension to crank it over, added a driver, bucket seat, shotgun and some whiskey barrels, painted it semi-gloss black and went OTT with the weathering. Not use to dirtying up black finishes so it got a bit out of hand. Hope itís not too bad on the eyes and I promise to get better  :)

The Catapult / HGUC 1/144 RGM-79(G)
« on: February 26, 2018, 04:32:00 PM »
RGM-79(G) ďSabreĒ

Bandai HGUC RGM-79(G). The new 79(G) is a great kit. Only a few seams to deal with and the new joints make it really posable. I made this pretty well OOB with a few additions from Bandai Builders Parts and Kotobukiya, namely the extra armour, the axe, some antennas, smoke launchers and grenades. The M61A5 tanks, the Hovertruck and the extra missile launcher all came from the UC Hardgraph Ground War sets.

Everything is brush painted using mainly Gunze acrylics with Tamiya & Vallejo for some of the details. The main colours are from the US SE Asia scheme as used in Vietnam. Weathering is done with a combination of Vallejo pigments and AK Interactive washes with the Tamiya makeup set used for highlights and dust.

The base is an artistís canvas panel that you can get from most cheapo and art shops. The basic ground cover is a mat I picked up on the cheap at QMHE a few years ago. Added extras like tank tracks, footprints, rocks, tree stumps and some ejected cartridge cases. I also modified the breach of the 100mm machinegun to show a case being ejected.

Here's the latest from the committee

The Catapult / MG MSA-003 Nemo
« on: November 13, 2017, 05:59:52 PM »
MG MSA-003 Nemo Deep Strike Unit.

Parts used:
MG Nemo, P-Bandai Ballute Pack, Weapons Container & 180mm cannon from MG RX-79[G], Anti MS shotgun from MG Kampher, pistol & rifle/grenade launcher from Kotokukiya. Drones are made from the large radome in the Bandai Builders MS Radome 01 set with missiles left over from the Mosquito that I built a while back. Decals (all 131 of them) are mostly from various Bandai ZZ sets.

As it is an infiltration unit it has no shield or beam sabres as getting up close and personal is not the mission. I havenít added any battle damage just a bit of paint damage here and there from skulking around in the rubble waiting for a target. I tried to paint it in colours youíd see in a bombed out city and as such the only weathering is to make it look dusty from the rubble. As an elite unit it would be well maintained so once again no battle damage or really mashed up parts.

The Ballute Pack has been left looking newish as they are a one off use pack that would be disposed of after landing. Once on the ground it can be configured with or without its booster unit or carrying the Weapons Container. It has two drones accompanying it to clear the way during the drop and to provide fire support once on the ground.

Joint Exercises / QMHE 2017
« on: September 05, 2017, 10:52:44 AM »
Another year another comp. Same venue as last year but man what a difference a new committee makes. Comp ran reasonably smoothly with AFAIK no models in categories they didn't belong in  :) Our display was well stocked with a variety of subjects and from what I saw attracted a fair amount of attention. Uncle Hemish did a good job of running the build table over the two days. There were lots of familiar faces from past years having a go but there was also a lot of newbies.

Below are pics of the display, Mecha-1 & 2, SF-1 & 2 and Juniors. Hemish's tribe was well represented this time round. At least they finished something, eh Mr H  :P

Someone needs to tell the banana benders the categories are Sci-fi 1 & 2 and Sci-fi Diorama not Star Wars 1, 2 & Diorama ::) and it's only going to get worse next year with all the Bandai Star Wars kits that were sold over the weekend  :'(

Joint Exercises / 2018 GAF Squad for QMHE
« on: September 05, 2017, 10:01:02 AM »
For next years squad it was Smegalot's turn to come up with a scheme (don't worry Mark it's your turn next time so you've got a whole 12 months to come up with something  ;) ).

We are doing ANY 1/100 Iron Blooded Orphans Mobile Suit in blue/grey/black camo decked out for urban combat (no massive BFG's or heavy armour, just lots of smaller weapons and bashy things) If a camo scheme is not your bag then just paint various components in a blue/grey/black scheme. A couple of examples are shown below.

As usual the GAF logo must feature on the kit somewhere (shouldn't it Mark  :P ). if you need any just PM me your address and I'll get some to you.
