None of us knows why this kind of thing happens, it’s like dropping buttered toast, it always lands buttered side down… or why does PE just completely disappears only to reappear days later, all bent and unusable…
Hope your back recovers soon
Do you have a contract with the British Army, Frank? Great paint job and quite an output! Especially I like the Wessex.
To completely eliminate such situations, I made sure that the floor in and around the workplace was completely free.
But these situations still happen exactly as you wrote!
Thanks Watto @flatfour my back is feeling much better today. Spent the weekend breaking down boxes and loading them in the recycling. I don’t remember buying all that stuff! Yes, PE seems to return from the ether the day after you finish the kit!
Did some work on the Hanomag **-100
A wash and some drybrush.
It’s going to tow a sd.ah 115 with a Biber dwarf sub.
Had some airbrush troubles this summer with the heath, that’s why it was on the shelf
I recycled with an old T72 dragon that I assembled a very long time ago at the time it was the only one available I used surplus parts from other kits to make a Frankenstein version for fun I was inspired by a photo of a Ukrainian T72 seen on the forum
Today I finished modifying 2 O-Gauge Weaver 50 ft flat cars by adding 3 inches from another one so I have a 62 ft flat car for my M992’s or Stryker or M88’s to sit on (chained to). Still have to plug some gaps, spray paint it olive drab and add DODX decals I had made some time ago. I am in the process of mounting 54 3D printed modern armor after painting the vechicles and chaining them down to the flat cars. I have 5 or 6 flat cars ready. Need to do at least 14 more 62 ft flats. Some items will go on 50 ft flat cars (M548, MRAP’s, M113’s, M578’s and LAV25’s etc. It will probably take me well into 2024 and maybe 2025 to get it done. Oh I still have 5 Tamiya 1/48 scale M1A1 Abrams to build/paint and they will go on the DODX 62 ft flat cars from Atlas O-Gauge I have.
From box to table.
Top-to-bottom and internal dry-fit session…
More Carro Veloce interior:
Trying to remedy some of the omissions/simplifications of Bronco’s kit.
Mix of Sea Dart and Sea Wolf work.
Repurposed gun barrels for the Bomb Bay Door.
I also like that round piece of sprue being used !!
Yes people often forget the sprue itself as a source of ‘greeblies’ to use to fill space. I used sprue and the little extensions used to push parts out of the mould to fill space in my X-Wing stand:
Finished the Bomb Bay Door assembly…
Painted hydraulics. …
And why I always got so many womens underwear advertisements?
