Well, I'm currenntly working on a 9" long SHADO Mobile, based on the Phil RAE plans. it's taken 2 months just to make the wheels!

I'm hoping to have working suspension. The big problem will be the tracks!

I have about 40 part painted Lord of the Rings 28mm models started ATM if that counts.

I will be starting the two MEV resin kits later on in the holiday, they can go with the new aquisition to my collection, two Martian Rock Snakes I just got from Fanderson.

And absolutely loads of other stuff far too numerous to mention, but like Chris mentioned, nowhere near enough time, (in this life time anyway), to finish them all.

I've got one of SSM's Viper Mk.II on the bench right now. I like this one - and in 1:72 scale goes with the Fine Molds Star Wars and Hasegawa Macross Fighters.

I also am working on what I think the predecessor to the Eagle Transporter looked like - a Falcon Space Shuttle - to go with my Pods-U-Like entry...

Just cleared up my model room so I can get in there during my 2 weeks off work, and have decided what my priorities are for building / completing this holiday...in no particular order:

Jim Small Ultra Probe - Built, painted base coat. Awaiting panel detailing, decals and engines etc

Jim Small Alpha Tanks (3) - Built two of three. To complete, prime, paint, decal & detail etc

1:1 Resin Stun Gun - Built and sprayed silver. To complete painting / detailing

Jim Small Pilot Ship - Not yet started

Warp Hawk - Built, primed. To do detail parts, painting and detailing

Warp Eagle Lift - Built. Awaiting priming, painting & detailing

Warp Eagle Freighter Pod - Built & painted. To decal & detail.

Revell Babylon 5 Starfury - Built and painted. Awaiting detailing, decals & weathering

Monogram Buck Rogers Starfighter - Built and base coat painted. To finish panel detailing, decals and weathering etc

Monogram BG Viper - Part built with cockpit conversion. To complete, paint, decal & detail etc

Resin SHADO Albatross - Built & primed. To paint, decal and detail

Resin Star Trek V Shuttlecraft - Built & primed. To top coat, decal & detail

Stargazer Models Dark Star - Built. To fill joints, rub down, prime, top coat, decal & detail

These are just the ones screaming out at me to be completed...there are hundreds more in boxes which I have started and put away again - see the list above for some of them...

If I can get half of this lot done I suppose I'll be happy !

Yes. Attached here is my Falcon Space Shuttle concept sitting next to a PE Eagle Transporter. I'm about 45% through pulling together the basic idea(s) - but I have a way to go before painting, revised Pod details, Engineering/Engine Bell structural supports, completing the Spine Truss, Landing Legs, etc...

What I'm envisioning (and still working out) is an immediate predecessor to the Eagle Spacecraft. Familiar components, but less capable - lineage clear, but different. My idea has Utility Pods that are semi-permanent on this spacecraft, for example. They can't be dropped and changed like the improved Eagle Spacecraft, calling for drydocking facilities for such. Even the range of my idea of the Falcon is much less than in the improved Eagle Spacecraft, as well as maximum speed.

I want to work this all out while off for the Holidays - as it is a background part of my Pods-U-Like Entry.

It would be nice to see the progress since December. It's a nifty little Eagle; and a great concept.

Fed up with working out how to attach the wheels to the Mobile Chassis, I've recently built the 'piggy back' fighter from Thunderbirds - 'The Duchess Assignment', modified from an F104 with F101 wings. I'm just waiting for decal sheets from Hannants so I can make my own markings. Then, I have to build the Carrier Craft

Wahey I like that carrier craft - any idea what the wing bits come from on it? You'll be needing 3 SRN1 airducts for that...

What manufacturer kits did you use for the piggyback fighter?

Hasegawa F104 G/S for the Fuselage
Revell F101 Voodoo for the wings (these have to be trimmed to match the body outline

Dunno about the SRN1 ducts though; they're about as common as rocking horse poo
