+HEPHAESTUS is not done yet, but it's well on it's way.

Here's some pics showing the starting of the graphics, and the blood spray from the mowing down of zombie hordes.

BURN BABY BURN!

I'm thinking of a driver for this one, nicknamed 'Aphrodite'. Y'know, since the actual greek god Hephaestus' consort -was- Aphrodite :P

I'll have to find an appropriate figure for this one!

Beautiful work, Rob. I copied the pictures to the next TZH SQUAD video update.

Thanks Doc!

I'll be doing little bits here and there until it's done, still need to weather some parts, fix up some 'pop-offs' that happened during the photo shooting, and make the graphics pop just a little better...

Then maybe order the welder chick once she's in 1/25th scale, and modify her to be the "Aphrodite" to +HEPHAESTUS :P

I'm thinking this one's gonna be deserving of a diorama base. But we'll have to see, time allowing of course.

My poor attempts at photo editing, to turn the blank casting of Sasha into Aphrodite (or a similar rendering thereof :P)
Posted Image

She'll look similar to this, but just a little more scraped up and dirty :D

They need to hurry up on releasing her in 1/25th.

nice rendition of Sasha! I like the inkwork on her belly... That'll be a tricky decal to place!

Thanks Chris! I could have done the edit better given more time, but I just cranked it out in 15 minutes to give myself and you guys a general idea of what I'm gonna try and go for!

On the same note, I'm going to find pictures of the figures I will be using as drivers for a select few vehicles (I'm only going to give a few of them the full treatment of a diorama base, permanently and underneath a glass dust cover) that I deem worthy of the effort, and edit them to look like the charactes behind them. Look for some more edits in the future!

At the moment, I've only decided on a few from this CBP and all but one of my technicals from my other CBP.

Speaking of, I need to find some "good ol' boys" for my confederate technical... :huh:


P.S. I may be raffling the OTHER builds of mine off to a lucky participant of this CBP to clear space on my display rack... but I haven't decided just yet. I know of at least ONE person on here that may end up with 'em :P

Good job, Rob. Archer has a couple of great tattoo decal sheets that would be perfect. And they are going to release her in 1/24th scale.

Thanks , T

Stripped all the kit chrome this morning , now I have to remove all the mold lines , glue the exhaust stacks and fuel tanks together and seal off the seam lines . Next up , shooting the parts with aluminum metallizer and start scratch building the rear platform .

Real eye opener at the hobby shop today when Bob rang up the the scratch building supplies!

It adds up, doesn't it. I just dropped over a hundred dollars in supplies myself today. It's all for a good cause, right? :lol:

I'm gonna be dropping about that much come pay day (my first big check finally comes in next week) on stuff I've got on hold from the CLEARANCE rack at the LHS...

Two nice big display cases for the two dioramas that I'm gonna be making, some plastruct crater sheets, ballast, brick will sheets, and some flocking/foliage.

On a slightly related note, I've been holding out on you guys again...(I do this from time to time)

I have yet another secret build I've been cooking up over the course of the month. Building it wasn't the problem, it was coming up with the idea...

I bought (before I found out that I could have gotten an entire kit from Tamiya) a 1/25 Toyota Trueno body from a model racing shop while I was in Myrtle beach. Needless to say I built it curbside because of the thickness of the bodywork, because trying to remove the hood and make it workable would have taken WAY to much time. (and I probably would have sliced a finger off in the process)

I've got it sitting on the bench drying in primer.

I'll let you guys squirm a bit in the anticipation of seeing what I've done with it :P








....I'll post pictures soon.

Oh ! So addiction is now considered a good cause ? Lol ! I dropped about the same , Virg . Sanded down all the formerly chrome plated parts, total pain in the behind !

Hope to have it all in metallizer tomorrow morning and weathered . Slow but sure .....

Here's the exo-cage I did. In hindsight I should have pulled it in much closer to the body.

Looking forward to it, Donn, and everyone. As we head into the fun summer months, I hope you all keep in mind that although there's plenty of time to complete one or several of these builds, it's my job (rather, GENERAL EYEGORE's job!) to rally the troops. And so, of those of you on the fence about joining in, it is never too late.

Besides, here's a picture that I know will get you to fight on the right side of the Zombie Hunting Wars . . .

a very small update as I've been waiting for some parts. I did come upon a shovel I plan to make into a bomber seat. It has the right size and shape and just needs some sheet wrapped around it for a back.

The cylinders are for the seat swivel (the short ones) and the machine gun swivel mount, the long one. The seams are tough to see, but they were just made from two tubes. The shaft has a larger tube slice glued to the base while the sleeve has a smaller tube half it's length glued toward the top. The sleeve will glue to the floor and trap the base, allowing the shaft to rotate. I almost think I should have sketched it up to be clearer. Coming up with a solution like this is what I love about this hobby ... simple and effective. :)
