    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

  18. Barbo added a post in a topic My new project from the movie AVENGERS   

    Yes, the vehicles are from Plastruct (scale 1;500), it will also have trees, sidewalks and streets. A friend of mine who is a Star Trek freak is making me a scratch built "Quinjet" for the landing dock, this will help sense the scale. If you saw the movie, this will be the new headquarters for the Avengers. When the building is partialy distroid only the letter 'A' stands from the STARK sign, Barbo
  19. Barbo added a post in a topic My new project from the movie AVENGERS   

    Well, I finished my drawings and decided to do my model in metric scale 1:500,(26"high) The scale of 1/8"=1'-0" makes the building more than 4 feet high and a base of 14". This is on of my drawings "Front Elevation" and my preliminary cardboard model. Now I will start my final model with all the details....Barbo

  21. Barbo added a post in a topic My new project from the movie AVENGERS   

    I am drawing the model in a architectural scale of 1/8" = 1'-0", If it comes out to tall to handle I will bring down the scale to 1/16"=1'-0" . The drawings that I have for ref. are hand drawn sketches and computer special efects photos. Once I have my drawings done I will post them. I will use more plastic than foam for this model, specialy from PLASTRUCT.....Barbo

    Hi....I did try to do the motel with this model as I said a few months ago, but it was coming out a diorama of about 36"x40" with the parking area, but it is to big to handle. So I decided to use the plastic base that comes with the model and add a foamboard base to do the small hill. I also use the old method of tissue and dope covering used for free flight balsa airplanes. I painted the area and used dry weeds to do the trees.....Barbo
