Topics I've Started

Revell Thermopaylae

21 March 2015 - 03:55 AM

I first bought this kit in the mid seventies but it was lost in a move.I recently found this kit on the Bay for a reasonable price.Should be fun although i know it is the Cutty Sark with the correct figurehead and decals. 001_zpsnaslbjvy.jpg

Lindberg Jolly Roger float test

04 February 2015 - 05:08 PM

I saw a Youtube video that featured a guy who took a Revell Wasa sailing ship and modified to float in a swimming pool.I have a Lindberg Jolly Roger pirate ship that I decided to make it a sailor.Glued the hull halves and transom with Zap A Gap and clamped it over night.The video recommended that you use pennies as ballast so I filled up the sink and added pennies along the keel until it was balanced correctly.I locked the pennies in place with 2 part resin and let it float for an hour.No leaks and the attitude in the water seems correct.Should be a fun project.                  001_zps4c3ccbf0.jpg


Old school 1/72nd Mavis

The cockpit is almost devoid of detail but the fuselage halves fit fairly well,although bodywork will be necessary to eliminate seams.   022_zpsa74b763d.jpg
