In the attempt to get a thread going about something other than Trek stuff, maybe we can at least see how many people are working on other stuff.
I just finished the Hulk last month so now I'm trying to complete an unfinished restoration project of Dr. Jekyll as Mr Hyde original that I started last year...
the figure is done and the base is almost there...just need to work on the details on the table and accessories.

What's on your table?

Refinishing an old kitbash, the USS Grand Alliance. New paint, new decals. There's a thread about it over on Cult's site with in-progress photos.

Oops! :D

Simultaneously I'm building AMtech's Ta-183 in conjectural WWII German Navy markings. I made up a staffel emblem of a raven over the sea and made a decal for it. Decaled it last night, just have the dullcoating, weathering, and landing gear to go.

After that I plan to tackle Trumpeter's 1/32 F-105G Wld Weasel. Verlinden finally made a cockpit set for it to replace the mediocre kit cockpit, so now I can go for it. I hope to Yoda it fits on one of my shelves!!

Of course Trumpeter's 1/48 SM.79 is still sitting there almost done. Maybe I should finish that up too.

Might want to set down before clicking on the link if you don't like Trek, 'cause I've got a shelf full of 1/2500 Star Trek ships - and that isn't even the full shelf! :D Most of them have been "in-work" for months on end due to a recent deployment, but about half of what's there is recent. I think I've built 12 to 15 in the last three or four weeks alone.

I have a whole lot of other Trek in-work, too. Only non-Trek I've got is an M1025 armored Hummvee which only has maybe 1/4 of the parts cut from the trees and some primer shot on it.

I'm trying to figure out how to finish my Wonderfest entry. I'm converting Polar Lights' Dracula into Bela Lugosi in White Zombie (the scene where he's standing there with the scarf in his hands after the coach drives off). I used Diceman Creations Bela head and totally redid the upper torso and reworked the hands/arms. I hope I can finish this bad boy in time. It's my first 'normal human' skin tone attempt. I've been putting that off for some time and am fairly pleased with the results.

Oh wow another Dig at the trek builders. I'm shocked!!

I wasn't trying to dig Trek builders as I have one on the dock waiting to get started. I just wanted to see what else the universe was doing with their time.
There are plenty of Trek opportunities to talk about this or that. I wanted to talk about something else for a change! :rolleyes:

ChrisW - Whatcha got going on there?

Oops I forgot to post what I was building. :)

1.Anakins Pod Racer for an old co-worker who doesn't build models. This one I have 1 engine assembled.

2.I have 1 PL Ent about 99% Done built as the Defiant, just needs flat coat.

3. Tamiya Bradley Fighting vehicle. This ones about 45% done.

Not sure what I will do next. I have LIS J2 for my brother and I have a ton of unbuilt kits to choose from. Including a large stock of Yamato/Starblazers so I have plenty for along time yet I keep buying more.

Just so's ya know, I was just pokin' at you. Nothing personal was meant. And I really do model almost exclusively in Trek, tho I'm trying to rehabilitate myself to occasionally do something else.... ;)

Currently working on Pl's Forgotten Prisoner, PL's LIS Cyclops w/Chariot, and PL's The Witch. Never seem to find enough time to gain any ground on 'em, though. Doubt I'll have any of them at the Fest, but, who knows!

I've got 3 NX 01's just sitting in their boxes at the moment. I'll have time to get excited about them when I complete some other projects. At the moment I'm working on:
*an Aliens Space Jockey by Halcyon
*an Invaders UFO diorama, with the UFO all lit up. This is almost complete, am working on the photographer. I've just carved a 2mm wide SLR camera & telephoto lens for him. Ordered my HO scale birds from "Little Critters" in Canada yesterday.
*another Invaders UFO diorama. This time not lit, but almost totally buried in the earth. The army has found it and are trying to etricate it.
*a Slave 1 kit - am about mid way finished. Engines and cockpit light up. This will be presebted in a large asteroid field diorama.
*on order...my next project - a Jedi Starfighter, to go in the asteroid dio, being chased down by Jango Fett. I think I'll title it, "Get 'im dad"!
*on order...my next simultaneous project - another Slave 1, but done up as Boba Fett's ship in SW V.
*Fully lit (interior) shuttle Tyderium.
*a 27" wingspan BOP - this is a long term project as the resin, by Warp, isn't the greatest quality. Still, I like the size.
*then my NX 01's -one regular, one as seen in the episode "Damage" and the third a hybred version - a cross between the NX 01 the the TOS Enterprise.
*long, long term project - my Borg cube/crashed Defiant confrontation.

Oughta keep me busy for a while.

Well. I am still working on ways to demolish my Creature model - since Oct. of '03. The back is just all frigging wrong - it has this gap thing that I have to use putty on, and it just doesn't look perfectly like it does in my head. I hate that !!!

I do however like the way the base turned out. I won't insult the base by attaching the #@( creature to it at this point.

It has not been an auspicious beginning for my second year in rediscovering the joy of putting together a model. Life sometimes gets in the way. I really look forward to seeing all kinds of models and techinques at Wonderfest - need a good jolt of inspiration.
