    Thunderbird 1

    I decided to have a go at painting with acrylics, seeing as the local Euro shop had all the bits.. This is as far as I got tonight. Acrylic is a lot more forgiving than watercolours, which was my only painting experience. (A picture of Leo McKern, done in the late 90's, sadly long-lost).

    I decided to have a go at scratch-building a commlock. Why? Because I can't afford to buy one, and it beats an iphone any day. Plans, drawn up from the Starlog originals. My first attempt in Acrylic. Too difficult to cut, leading to tolerance stacking. 2nd Attempt in 1mm plastic card...

    My First Build : SHADO Moon Mobile

    Work In Progress : S.S. Hyperion

    This is an original design that I put together... oooh, about 30 years ago when mucking about with super-8. The original was cardboard with two jet-engines from a 1:35 Frog Messerschmitt 262. It was a bit smaller and had a bit of a different engine area. A couple of months ago, I noticed...

    Hello folks

    Hello, I've just joined and I'm delurking to introduce myself. I'm coming back to modelling after something of a 20 year hiatus, I'm English but now live in Germany, and I've taken up scratch-building so I can spend a bit of my time NOT looking at a computer screen. I look forward to getting...
