Hello everyone,
here is one of my models from a little while ago I thought you guys might like to have a look and let me know what you think as you guys do which is great as this helps me to improve on future builds.

fully scratchbuilt about 12 inches long nine inches high and saves grannies

Hello Mr Mark42,
nit pick as much as you want that is the only way things improve if people keep wanting better, I have also been building for a long while, and keep trying to improve I guess I could by now be using modern materails like glass fibre resin ect and mould loads of bits but I just take a sheet of plastic a pencil and model knife and get going I suppose if I spent loads of money and took two or three years to build a model it would be hard to tell it from the real thing but I like to keep it simple.

have you built anything that is "off the wall as they say " an odd model which none else has had a go at ? if you have stick on a post with a few images please.

regards Barrie ( the old guy )

Hi Barrie

I did sometimes build guest star vehicles that appeared in one or two episodes but I now tend to stick with just the main star vehicles, the plan being to have every hero craft from XL5 to date. Maybe after that I'll tackle some of the other stuff - like buildings for instance. There are some classic buildings in the old shows that would make great models, I remember a really nice Marineville model that was at an early 1980s Fanderson convention.
As for materials, I do prefer fibreglass myself but often its only really required if you intend to build duplicates or need it to be strong, otherwise you can use just about anything decent - two of my current builds are Balsawood and MDF board that are coated in a layer of epoxy resin to give them a decent surface, much quicker to do.

cheers

hello Mark 42,
one thing is for sure they had some great ideas and designs in the Anderson shows, so good that they have lasted for so many years and people like you and me are still building them. On the model front I have used epoxy once but the smell is awful and there always seems to be so much snding then filling then sanding and so on though a good hard solid model is the result you must be very dedicated to model model making,

regards Barrie ( the old guy ) take a peek at the couple of images any idea what it is ? or is going to be.

Hi Barrie, I'm usually the last person to criticise anyone's creative endeavours, especially your excellent effort... BUT, you may wish to revisit the spelling of your decal...;)
