I agree with Darren, your membership of Photo Etch Annonimouse might need to be reviewed. But seriously you have shown some great skills, especially with the painting, on this build Paul,

See. It was fate me removing the Bandai kits from temptation, It's made you build this, and what an amazing piece of work. This really is a true master class in strange SciFi builds.

Keep it up Paul, I'm learning a **** load.

Too kind squire, I’m just doing the first steps on the base this morning and then that’s me and sci-fi done until my next corvette breakdown 😂

I didn’t quite live up to my promise and thought better than to close the build without any indication of the base work.

The base was covered with some coloured polyfiller and before drying a few bits were impressed into the surface over a sheet of clingfilm to protect them. There was to be some logs, some rope, a bit of brick work and a piece of angle iron. No Ewoks were hurt during this build (nor were they successful).

The rust is just a couple of minutes work so don’t be thinking it’s some fancy dandy voodoo art magic. There is plenty of skill in model making but the right tools and materials go a long way to helping out.

Took more time to get the rope to follow all the contours than the rest of the base.

As you you can see with my new Duncanesque blue screen, I have attempted to do some finished pictures. These can now be seen in the Gallery. 

Thanks a bundle

Paul

You and me both Steve, the first ship I did was the Arizona and it still awaits its rigging. The current one, the Corvette is round two. I’m hoping that when I get to the rigging on the Corvette, that I will also finish the Arizona and get a 2 for 1 moment.
