This is my latest project- making my 70's Flying Sub model more exact.



The windows on my Aurora model are surrounded by a "bulge" that was not on the real sub( in silver here)- I intend to fix it.

Also, the hatches were round, not including the "latches" shown here:


I intend to fix that also.

Tell us YOUR pet model projects...

We exist! I am working on plans for a steam punk air ship out of Space 1889/Soldiers Companion. It is patterned after the gun boat HMS Melik.

That means you would have to define the "real world" and I am not up to that today ;-)

In the "real world" you can play with a model, and possibly break it (not erase it).

There.

We need more pictures so I found a couple at home last night.

This was my inspiration to build a Martian Gunboat. These are my 15mm Civil War gunboats. 15mm corresponds to 1/87

""

This next is our first attempt. It is a kit bash tarting with the hull of the Star Wars Airboat from the third movie with boiler and various bits of Victoriana added.

""

The final Picture is the Colonel leading his troops.

Kit-bashing is a felony, isn't it?

Though not a "model" per se (only a very little assembly & painting is required), this is my favourite...

I used to build models. Did plenty of the Star Trek and Star Wars kits.

Then for a while when I was scratch building model fire trucks. Kind of a niche but since i was a firefighter at the time it kinda fit.

Then I got into 3D modeling aircraft for Microsoft Flight Sim 2000/2002/2004

That got really addicting. I'm still not one hundred percent cured of that since I still occasionally drag out the modeling program to make stuff to go with my fanfiction...



And the stuff I used to make for Flight Sim...

I use to build models back when I was in high school and had fre time (and a workshop). Now that I'm an overworked apartment-dweller, those days appear to be over.

Though, when the weather warms enough to leave my windows open, I do plan to take a paint brush to some of my Transformers figures (Hasbro has to pay for every individual paint app they put on a toy, so we often end up with great molded-in detail that needs a few coats of paint to actually look like. . . not molded-in detail).
