Sorry you couldn't find a way to the Mpls. NNL North. These things on the primer table would have been a great conversation piece. As good as it looks in paint, too bad it hides some of your hard work.

For those wondering,,,,,I have a pile of things in the paint shop so in waiting for them I diverged again into new territory....the previous projects will get done but paint drying has it own schedual.....so I will post a little of what I have been working on this week...Mind you this is about 1/14th scale,,,,,,roughly.......The first picture has a ruller so you can get an idea of the size.....

As you know I have again wandered off the subject and immersed myself in yet another K3.... a quick up date.(this is 1/14th scale)

 

I have been working on the engine and front end architecture. The engine is slowly coming together along with the sheet metal and louvered hood. Obviously all the louvers are hand cut and lack sophistication of the real thing but they give the correct appearance for this model.

The hoods for these are always a challenge to get them right in plastic and I need a little filler to clean it up along with some fitting. This will be done as the sides of the hood are placed.

I was wondering if you were going to get back to this...since you have so many other masterpieces in the creation process.  ;)

This thread is an eye candy factory.  I am just amazed at all the painstaking steps you've performed thus far.

Amazing work. Bucket-loads of creativity on every page - and no small ammount of determination either.
