Chris, Im awfully sorry, and gutted.

I can bring the 3 fire engines, but this tractor has eat up loads of time over the week, Ive put loads of hours on all of the models each day, but the boat and jet just aint quite finished

Im just sticking the roof on and adding some cosmetic bits and detail paint and weathering to this which will be finished, ill be on it all night, everything on it, handrails, chequered decals seem to have taken ages to do.


sorry

couple of more pics of the tractor, dirtied down didnt want to put pics on the build thread because this was all done over the last week or so, it was just wood last week. and I didnt want Chris to get worried thinking it wouldnt be ready, just gutted I couldnt get the others fully finished. ill post all the build pics when Im back from the con.




Ive had to rush the front end, cab, roof. chrome bits etc, the chrome pieces on the fronnt,mesh etc isnt exactly right but Ive used ones from the same kits they used which are closest. Ive had to rush it for the con, after it ill go over it again with a fine toothcomb. such as the black tape around the windscreen, although the original had this too, it just looks a bit naff on a static model.
im just evosticking the roof on for now, but will take that off when im back as ive only done a simple interior.



this is as far as I got with the boat, just didnt have time to get the handrails and hydrofoils finished, I spent a lot of time on the yellow fire engine which probably was a little too ambitious and could have spent the time on the others.

Mike

Mike - don't worry at all mate - you're bringing some excellent exhibits. I really would like to display that boat as it is there as it looks a beauty...any chance of bringing it along anyway ?

Cheers

Chris (just getting in the car to leave for the con now !)

Hi Cap'n !

Keep them coming.

I don't know who the guy with the white shirt is, but behind him, just
beside w8cmp's eagle, there a NDA monitoring building with the antenna
on the top (seen in Force Of Life).

Is it a real prop or a replica ?

Can you post more pictures of it please ?

That's one of my future project !

Default Colour coded ID's....

Black Shirt is Martin Willey
White Shirt is Mike Delamar
Grey Shirt is Chris Potter (running repairs to the original props)

Today was the set up day, Martin had flown in from Brussels and had been travelling since 5:30 am. Moving these props is a laborious, tricky business so by the time we had finished we were exhausted. Poor Chris Potter had stuffed an ankle just before setting out this morning and will need to rest it tomorrow.

The model room was looking quite healthy in the end with contributions from Hilton Fitzsimmonds, Darrel Simmonds, Mike Delamar, Larry Peterson and a lot of original props from the collection of Martin Willey - thanks to you all guys.

Thanks for the photos. I look forward to a photo map of the Derelict Spacecraft. That would be a great project if enough reference were available, and an Ideal compliment for any Ultraprobe owner!
