    The Ads on this site are ridiculous now

    Don't know why, but all of a sudden i've got adverts everywhere - even in the scroll down of each topic, there's an advert between the title and the rest of the thread. Seriously thinking now of giving up on this site. I don't need all this crap (literally) to wade through to get through to the...

    Blakes 7 K47 Plague Ship

    Finished! Very odd to finally have this, after more than 10 years of planning, and 2 attempts before

    Blakes 7 K47 Plague Ship

    So that's the command ball attached and stripes done. Just a couple more bits of colour to put on, then I've got to figure out the weathering for a ship that's been lost in space for 700 years.

    Blakes 7 K47 Plague Ship

    The wheel axle i've had in my bits box for ages - i bought some 1/24th car kits back when i was going through a Mad Max car conversion phase. The two cylinder part i couldn't track down, so i got two parts from the Space Shuttle (think they were from the hyrdalics of the landing gear, cut them...

    Blakes 7 K47 Plague Ship

    So, let's have a think about the K-47 ship. I've always assumed its quite small, going by the size of those command ball windows. The clues were given in "Killer" bear that out: We learn it went missing 700 years ago, in the region of 61 Cygni and only had a 3 man crew. Even then, being inside...

    Blakes 7 K47 Plague Ship

    The original studio model of the Plague Ship was only properly detailed on its left side. That's of course following in the tradition of filming miniatures of "if it's only going to be seen on one side, don't waste time and money doing the other". But, now I've got two tanks on, there may be...

    After more than 10 years planning to build the K47 Plague Ship, it's really weird to finally reach the paint application stage.

    Blakes 7 K47 Plague Ship

    That's the command ball done. I'm not going to attach it as it'd be difficult to mask up the windows, then paint, then remove the masking then add the pin stripes. So I'm leaving it off and will paint separately and only attach it right before weathering.

    Are these the same X-Wings?

    Folks, hoping to call on your massive modelling knowledge here, please. Does anyone know if this X-Wing released in the Return Of The Jedi packaging is EXACTLY the same size as the original one, that was marketed as Luke's X-Wing? I need to know as, if it's not, the parts i need from it are...

    Blakes 7 K47 Plague Ship

    A couple of updates for today. First, this little piece that goes to the left of the engine bells has been identified as a piece of the turret from an Airfix 1/72nd Tiger 1 tank kit. I had hoped that the wheels would be the ones i needed to put on the cone, but they're a tad small. Got a 1/48th...

    Blakes 7 K47 Plague Ship

    Latest bit of progress - these rounded shapes with the ribbing are still unidentified, so i've made my own buy cutting halves of my remaining Space Shuttle external rockets to size, and then adding the ribbing using Half Rod:
