    Look who I found

    Look who I found while looking at Man from U.N.C.L.E screen shots on "Lisa's screen capture site" This ep is call the case of the bat cave... thought it might be a crossover with the caped crusaders, but no... alas.... its an S99 crossover instead...

    The Investigator boat.

    Well, the Investigator boat or Coast guard missile boat (not sure what the missiles were for :lol:) has arrived and I'm pleased to say just need some yellow paint added to the sides and the jets and rear fin painted white and jet like. I will also give the "interior" a makeover, but otherwise...

    Thanks Eagle for all the hard work getting us running again. The new page layout is arresting at first (:wtf:) but one quickly moves forward. Some of us have had to resort to email to get our fix, :lol: so many thanks, its nice to be back.

    Dropship cockpit interior

    I have started to pull this apart so I can work on the interior details while procuring pilots. There is plenty of room in the cockpit area which is good as I need to fit two monitors (one plasma like for the co-pilot and the other a box for the pilot.) There is so little detail available that...

    Changing crew in a Konami Shado 1

    Just a quick look at changing crew in a Konami Shado 1. I think I'd love to change the tracks as well, cutting them off the wheels and finding something better, but one thing at a time. The first picture shows the rather oversized figures supplied. They don't even fit the seats so I don't...

    Taito TB2 Question

    Question. Are these Taito TB2s any good? I vaguely remember one of our members suggesting they weren't. There are a couple on ebay at present, but I don't know whether they're worth looking into. And another question. What scale are they .....roughly?

    Gerry Anderson like Aliens Drop ship pod vehicle

    Not sure where to post this, but it struck me that the Drop ship is very TB2 like in its ability to bring a pod vehicle to rescue colonials. :D Anyway, I've begun making an APC for the Konami drop ship to deliver. I've gone for the glue together and start carving method in this build...

    Konami Aliens

    Can't help but show these off. They're so cool. The APC now has turning wheels and a positionable main turret, operational or stowed. The original molded one was drilled out, a new base was put into the "channel" the turret runs in and a new block to hold the turret itself was made. This is...

    Konami Drop ship

    The Konami drop ship I won on ebay has arrive, the APC is on the way. What a great little model this drop ship is. Reminds me of the beautiful detail on the Angel Interceptor. What is most amazing is that for the first time, the lollies are still in the packet. I presume the seller has kept...

    Alien V Predator

    My wife has picked this up for me for $3 AU, and looking at the special features the guys are trying very hard to link it all to Alien/Aliens, so as to get street cred I rather think. I see its already been done in the comics and I know everyone was waiting for such a classic battle... but what...

    Orange Decals for 23"

    I have bought some orange stickers (a per the originals though not the same brand) for use on the 23". What dimensions should I be using for them? The original painted on things seem too fat when compared with what one sees on the original 44"s.

    Plan 9 from Outer Space.

    This is regarded as we know as perhaps the worst film ever made. True, Dark Star was better, but this was kind of fun. Some of the recent 90s Z grade movies are wayyyy worse. I saw one the other night called Tyrannosaurus Wrecks, which I could not watch it was so bad. Typical F grade actors...

    Finally got to watch Dark Star. I can't believe it came out of the same mind that conceived Alien ....shit :&:

    Alien/ Aliens "The definitive editions"

    Just bought Alien, and Aliens "the definitive editions... supposedly the ones before Alien/Aliens the utterly amazing incredible editions, and then Alien/Aliens the utter amazingly totally completely categorically "IT" editions. I do love it how these things grow in there total utterness...

    Weathering space craft. Help please.

    As I'm about to paint panels and weathering on my PE 23" I'm wondering how I should proceed. Is there a general pattern one should follow... start with thin washes of this and that then move onto x y and z.? I have no trouble weathering military vehicles, but space isn't grubby like the battle...

    This looks like a cool place

    I'm supposed to be on hols and have spent much of it cleaning the house for a quarterly inspection. One of the joys of renting. Today is the first day I've had to really kick into the 23" eagle and its slowly becoming reasonable. I have managed to mask the CM up and paint the panels. Almost...

    From Command vehicle to Investigator car

    Thought I'd start this thread though it will take a little time to work through the transformation. Opening this vehicle up reveals that Dinky had every intention of releasing this as the Investigator car, the parts having Inv and Investigator cast into them. The wind up motor that produces...

    PE 23" refurbish

    I have finally begun pulling the PE 23" apart and have been pleasantly surprised at how badly glued together everything is... fortunately. The bottom of the pod popped straight off and the only thing that's broken is one of the ledges on the rear walkway. The coffins are now gone as are the...
