Default 1970's photo of me with models.

Found this photo of me in the 1970's. I was a proud lad with my models.

Would love to see other peoples photos from back then.

Hovercraft. Always been there.


Dark, satanic scribblings...

Hey, I had one of those hovercraft. That's a blast from the past. It was a thin vacform with an outlet at the back to one side to counteract the torque of the motor. No good on carpet but excellent on my aunt's smooth lino kitchen floor.

I have photos like that which shall not see the light of day.. Eagle, not satanic drawings, but merely your rendition of the black sun. Nice diorama there shado driver, are they Tamiya models? I still have all mine from that period in my life safely under the bed. One day I shall get back into the military modelling and make some of the lovely stuff on offer at present

I think they are Monogram models. M26 Weasel and M8 armored car. Hanging from ceiling is AMT Enterprise, AMT Klingon cruiser, AMT Romulan warbird, AMT glow in the dark Mystery ship, Airfix Eagle, Huey gunship and a Spitfire.

This is the only shot i have of my models from that time (dig the funky wallpaper eh?).
But it shows i'd got the converting bug way back then.
Anyway, the photo is real small and i haven't a scanner at the mo' so don't know how clear this'll appear to you, but what we have, left to right, top shelf:

a Darth Vader TIE Fighter wing, upended, with an engine on the back and the canopy door used as a command module stuck in the middle.

An Action Man Gyrocopter backpack with kit bits on. Looked a bit Thunderbird 2 i thought.

Hawk. No weathering.

Scarlet Angel.

Viper.

Then on the bottom shlef there's:

very heavily dirtied down Orion.

The back section of an Eagle, painted in black and white, weathered, and the two squares that would've been facing the pod filled in with black for cockpit windows.

A hideously chunky, clumsy scratchbuild. Embarrisingly, the only one i still have.

The bottom 35th scale tank upended and turned into a ship.

The "claw" like stand for the Viper with bits stuck on and the triangular bit that fitted in into the Viper painted up as the cockpit.

The front section of the Eagle, painted in red and white.

The other TIE wing, this time turned the other way up and a Vostock ball stuck on top as the cockpit.

OK - here we go, time to hog this thread... :-)

While I don't have many photos of me 'with' my models, I do have some of my old projects etc which I have dug out of the archives.

Here we go with some of my model collection from my mid teens to twenties. I make no apologies for the fact there are a number of Star Trek models here as I was seriously in to this as well as all things Anderson.



A local one day convention (I believe in Walton on Thames), where the art room was unfortunately lacking in models...so I went home and picked up a few...


The Stingray and Interceptor launch crater were not mine, but the other models & starship drawings on the walls were...note the Klingon cruiser 'landed' on elevator cars !


All mine...




AMT Klingon Cruiser


Movie version with a few corrections...


Halcyon kit with resin APC




The original Comet Liberator


A modified AMT Galileo


My AMT Bridge kit which had some major surgery, and corrected upper walls / viewscreens cast in plaster of all things as I didn't know anything about resin when I built it.








Always loved aircraft...






And military subjects. This started out in regular camo and got reworked during the first Gulf War.


I'll try to dig out my box of old photos and scan some of me when I was younger too...

Found a few of a younger / much thinner me (those of you who know me now will know what I mean here ) - not with normal models...but their full size counterparts...

A trip to Duxford with my Grandad who took the picture...in front of Concorde


And the cockpit of a Victor bomber.


My Grandad (who has now sadly passed on) and me at Duxford again. He was part of B-17 Preservation looking after Sally B, and we got a few flights in the old girl in our time...




One of my favourite holidays to Spain...we were in Benidorm when the USS Forrestal came in for shore leave. My parents befriended the Chief Petty Officer on board, and we were given the royal tour. Having established my interest in aircraft, I was invited to stay on board for a few days which was far better than a beach holiday as far as I was concerned.


Managed to get a flight on this while bringing supplies back and forward to the ship.


Mum, our friend Bert, and a thin me on board...
