    Been Painting Again

    Been painting again. I'm not too happy with this one, for some reason. It's the Morlock Sphynx from the George Pal version of "The Time Machine".

    Elysium : Original Design

    I also used them to make another model I posted here a while ago, which for some reason has uploaded upside-down.

    Elysium : Original Design

    Back again, this time with a model. An original that I started about two years ago : The S.S. Elysium. Finally finished.

    Hi all, haven't been on here much due to work. However, I have been keeping myself busy with a few paintings. Kirk vs. Gorn Android Ruk Spock 3 Talosian

    Com-link monitor options?

    2.5 inches is far too big. The commlock screen is only about 1.5.

    Thunderbird 1

    5.. 4.. 3.. 2.. 1! And here are all the pictures, all finished. I'm thinking about bringing them to Cosford, if anyone's interested. The next subject will be non-Anderson, but still rescue-related : It's going to be a picture of a Vosper RAF rescue launch MkII, as based at RAF Holyhead, as...

    Thunderbird 1

    Finished. Rejigged the waves, put on a bit of panelling and highlights, and cheated the text with a marker pen.

    Work In Progress : S.S. Hyperion

    Talk about back from the dead.. I've resurrected the Hyperion, given it a decent coat of paint, some dry decals and a bit of a rub-down with a wash made from burnt umber acrylic, with a little black in there. When last seen, our Hero's ride had a fresh paint job. The sort that no...

    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).

    Commlock

    Kevin : Funnily enough, I'd been looking at something very similar on Conrad (sort of the German equivalent of RS). And relax.. Not quite finished, as I have to add [light circuit for the screen, but 99% there. I tired of the buttons, and removed them with a sharp blade. The new ones are...

    Commlock

    So, after a certain amount of DTP trickery, I had a sheet of buttons, screens and IDs ready to print out on to white laser decal paper. White laser decal paper. What a load of utter carp. Passing one sheet of the stuff through my HP Lasercolor was enough to bring doubts. Out came a rather...

    Commlock

    More Commlockery : After a bit of masking and respraying with better masking tape, I now have this: It's beginning to look the part. I'm now working on DTPing the relevant decals.

    Commlock

    Hmm. I'm not having much luck with the application of paint. I've had to retouch various bits, then I remasked and sprayed various buttons white with the Revell etching primer, which is a lot better than the standard acrylic white. I then tried to make the button stickers. I did this by...

    Commlock

    After 4 months away, I've done a bit more on the commlock: Paint! The commlock was undercoated with Revell etching primer, and then with duplicolor primer grey. I used whitetack to mask the screen. Don't, because it leaves a horrible residue on the perspex which is an utter pain to get off...

    Commlock

    Finally, some work on the Commlock again! Here we are with the freshly-attached belt clip. The clip is made out of aluminium sheet, cut, bent and attached with two small pop rivets. Slightly off, if you look carefully, mainly due to the way I bent it. If you look closely, you can just see...
