Welcome.

It's a bit quite around here but have a rummage around (easier to find stuff than Facebook  ;) ) and hope you enjoy.

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.

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  :)

Plain old GP Thinners is all you need. You can get it in 1ltr or 5ltr containers. Diggers is the most common in hardware stores but any paint shop will have some brand of GP Thinners.

Nice collection  8)

You've got more patience than me. Only built the first two RG kits. They ended up in the bin. Horrible things that fell apart if a door slammed on the other side of the country  :(

No, that's just a mix of different grades & types of railway ballast glued down with Aquadhere. The Wilder stuff is on the front, back, under the guards and splashed over it in few places.

It's an interesting kit. It would be nice to find out who makes them for Mechanicore. Probably the same sub contractors that make kits for Dream Forge and a few other mobs. The subject matter is nice but the execution leaves a lot to be desired.

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.

Welcome.

Pretty quiet around here thanks to that useless Faceache but if they keep going the path they've chosen then things might pick up again.

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  :)
