Re: So, what ya doing?

Hi Folks

Been away from the site for far too long now; nothing sinister just the usuals of life and work! I am still fighting the Halcyon Dropship I started months ago, but I have nearly won the battle! Just the diorama to build now... Anyway here`s a snap of the progress so far.

Been absent of late....work deadlines and the dumbest project I`ve ever built have just about killed any enthusiasm and time for modelling but anyway here`s what`s on my bench..........


and yes IT`S A SPACESHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   thought it`s about time I tackled my fear/ inability to paint hardware so I`ve come up with an idea for a little dio which could cover up some dodgy paint..

What was this hideous kit that has caused you so many problems?

Hi Gareth


Yes I managed to knock something up together. I have just finished the APC as well (and yes I added headlights to the resin kit) so there will be photos coming soon. I didn`t carry on with the build report that I was doing chiefly because it crashed every time I tried to upload any pictures. Life getting in the way also didn`t help much...


Since the above photo I have removed the canopy and cleaned it up, so you can now see the cockpit lighting I put in. I am happy with the way the lighting has worked (this is my first one!), and I just have to build the base remembering to incorporate the battery box somewhere.


I will say that the build has been a bit of a nightmare, I have essentially built two of these kits with the amount of things that either fell off or had to be pulled apart again! Then factor in all the scratch building needed to make it look proper (the OOB cockpit features two seats and nothing else at all!), adding the lighting and then the filler required - holy crap was there a shit load of that. Still the end result is definitely worth it.
