still doing my 4 foot cardassian warship that ive been doing on & off for about 3 years, i was going to make moulds of this monster, but tbecause of the size of it, it would be too expensive, so just building it as a solid model, it`s goddam heavy!!

Well, got a couple going, as usual. I'm working on Starship Modeler's Action Class ship, putting the ablative armour on the nacelles, then it's on to painting. I also need to finish up my kitbash TOS-looking NX-01. And just for giggles I'm starting/restarting two more- One is a Galaxy Class variant from an RPG I do. The other is taking a 1/24 new VW Beetle & turning it into this:

And for all you TF fans, I'm giving him Goldbug's head. :)

^^Beetlebot looks like fun!

Can you show us your TOS-looking NX-01? I've been thinking about the same thing.

I've made some big progress on my garage>workshop conversion. I removed one of the garage doors today and replaced with a temporary wall of fiberboard while I frame it from the outside for doors and windows. Next step, however, is to cut a hole in the wall and put in an airconditioner. The midlands of South Carolina are no place to be without some form of efficient cooling during the summer.

I'm working on a resin kit of Skrat from Ice Age, and I have a PL Captain America sub-assembled, filled and primed. The next step is to re-prime and if that looks good I'll start painting, which I find a bit daunting to get a good spray job on the stripes on the torso. Oh..god, I forgot, I have to decide if I'm going to fill the back of the shield and sand it. Icky poo as they say.

It should be! It'll sure test my scratching abilities!

Here's a quick shot. She's built from the PL 1/1000 E. Currently, I'm in the process of painting. I'll post more when she's out of the booth. :)

^^Excellent, PoSII! Definitely got that TOS/pre-TOS look! I wish they'd have done something more like that for the ST:ENT series.

Prosta: That thing is cool as all git-out! But one question: what the devil is it? :confused:

Macross

Robotech/Macross Tactical Pod Glaug.
Next to the refit the Macross Destroids and the Glaug/Regult are my favorite kits.

Talk about revisiting my youth. Spent the summer of '85 in the States. There was a hobby shop around the corner selling all this Robotech stuff. This is the 1st one I've done since then.

I've been loafing for the last few weeks. I still have some finish-work on my Frankenstein with little girl, and I was gonna start on Alfred E. Neuman, but I just recieved my Monster Time Clock and started the background.
It's a great casting, with no clean-up, and I'm as happy as a vampire with a debit card at the blood bank !
Since I like figure models and faces it should be a joy to do, but as has been said here before, rather contorting to the fingers/hands to work on.
I have two examples on my PC file, so I'm doing the background the dark blue as one has, but the faces in full color. I primed the hands with white, then did them in luminescent paint, and the moon the same way. The moon looks "cool", "neato", ( add your adjective here ) !!
So I guess I'll be 'Dabbling' at this for a while.

If this transfer works, this will be a pic of the clock with 6 figures done.
I don't know if it's yeager or not.

Ok, it didn't work. i'll try another way??

OK, I put a pic in the photo album, but the quality is bad. I have to get a good digicam.
I am happy with the results so far, thanks to tips, etc. I learned from folks on this board.

Monster Clock

Yeah AV, I'm using acrylics. I 'discovered' them a little while ago and really love them. Especially since I do figures and want the flatter finish as oposed to gloss enamels. Plus the water cleanup,thinners play hob with my skin
I get mine from Wal-Mart, something like $.44 for small ( 2oz. ) and $1.67 for larger (8oz.) .I bought a couple gloss by mistake, but use Testors Dullcoat to tame it down. All of this stuff I learned by eavesdropping on this BB before I joined. ( there're some reall pros on here )
I buy the basic colors and mix my own custom shades & tints. Well, OK, that does give me a whole table crammed with 1.5 oz. jelly & mustard jars.
If I do want a gloss for some detail, I use Minwax Polycrylic Clear Gloss. Like on the "Creature" on the clock. I'm not near as good as some on here, but I like the way the clock is turning out. I'm sure you love it too.
