    Really nice build. I'm on a Star Wars trip myself.
  3. What kind of other nerd are you?

    Vintage comic books for over 35 years. Now I'm into Warhammer 40K and FPS gaming like Battlefield.

    One word. OUTSTANDING.
  5. Solo

    Horrific is a word to use. Full of third wave Feminist and SJW malarkey. But it might be up someones alley.
  6. What Irked You Today?

    I wish I was close by Bill. It would be MY pleasure to help. Ya see, I lived in Baltimore for 15 years. I had to deal with that quite a lot. But one sunny day my buddy Dave [Who is from Costa Rica and looks like a big round brown guy with a wide nose. He is also a great guitar player and lifelong Metal head] came up with a great idea. We were at the house rehearsing and arranging some music for his upcoming solo thing. I mentored Dave musically and even played in his band for a while. We were playing small combo amps and recording them into my DAW on the computer. Dave looked over at the two 100 watt 1/2 stacks I had at the house. One Marshall and one Mesa Boogie. He thought, "Hey, what if we bring those down to the porch?". Knowing the loud music would return we dragged both amps down to the porch. Each amp is a 100 watt tube head with a 4X12 cabinet on which it sits. When I say they can get LOUD, I mean they get LOUD. We can drown a full drum kit with one of these things. Two is waaaayy over the top. So we set them up and just hung out. We grabbed my two acoustic guitars and were playing a bunch of classic stuff for quite a while. We drank a few beers and went through a lot a cover songs we knew when at around dusk two cars pulled up across the street about 3 doors up. You could hear them when they made the corner 1/8 a mile away up the street they were pounding so hard. We fired up the 1/2 stacks and just waited. They pulled up got out and just hung there with their buddies with one of the cars just shaking the ground with what must have been the genre you alluded to. I had dropped the tuning on both guitars to B to add extra girth to the demonic riffage we planned. Once the amps got up to temp we flicked em both off standby and played some riffs we knew that were certain to entertain and thrill our lucky audience. You could still hear their BOOM BOOM a little but over the top of that was this HELLISH sound of two 100 watt Metal amps be wielded by two very competent players soloing back and forth over each others scorching and brutish downtuned riffs. That went over like a fart in church and they listened for a about 2 minutes before they packed up and left post haste. Once gone I went around and apologized to several of my neighbor's and dragged the amps back upstairs. Of course they would return at later dates and pound again but at least we got a point across. I don't make you listen to my music, why should you subject me to yours? You don't have the right despite what you think you have a right to do. No lesson was learned on their part but the rest of our night was peaceful.

    Looks solid bro. Keep on....... The tops of the heads are in contact with the frame as well. I've owned several 1:1 early 80's Shovelheads and they rattle, they shake, but they don't fall apart. The gals like em too because they shake. Especially if it's a rigid. Looks great from here.

    Those are pretty heavy for kids. These days those certainly wouldn't fly. Gotta protect eyes from anything real or a bit disturbing. But back then we could handle things for what they were. It kept us from repeating them in case anyone cares to consider it all. Snowflakes these days cannot handle even the smallest diversity except what they deem acceptable. OK, rant over.

    I too have those Blazing Combat mags in my vast collection. They are a pretty penny these days especially the #1. High grade examples are well into the 500 or more mark. Look at those covers will ya! Mood, movement and a true sense of capturing a moment in time. These are prime examples of why Frazetta, Wrightson, Jeffery Jones, Mike Kaluta, Mike Ploog and a great many others are head and shoulders above mere mortals by being able to tell a story with a single image.
  10. Well it has been quite the journey Chris. From day one till now I have been with you hoping you fulfilled your quest to build the ultimate Snake. You have without a doubt achieved that with much to spare and i wanted to congratulate you on what is the finest 1/16 scale AA/FC model of ANY car to run the 1320. There were times it seems you doubted yourself but all of us knew you would do it. And here we are brother, looking at it and wondering how it was achieved even though we all saw it come together lo these few years. A hearty congrats to you Sir and so say all of us! My humble respect. Bob Frias

    Nearly complete. The reds on the ax are drying and the sword got a coat of oil to make it pop and is also drying. Tomorrow it will be complete and ready for some lighting if I can find a spot and lighting to make it eerie enough. For now this shot will do. A great kit from Moebius.
  12. Moebius Death Dealer

    You gonna build it soon Vince?
  13. Moebius Death Dealer

    Thanks guys. Please forgive the open seam at the waist and below. Once the arm is attached that area becomes completely blocked with the arm and shield and I didn't feel the need to putty it.
  14. Moebius Death Dealer

    I agree. Once complete a little set up will be required to get the eerie look of the painting. I've had the pleasure of seeing the real painting up close and although it was quite a few years ago i remember it being surreal. As many times as I've seen the image nothing beats seeing something in the flesh. I recommend the Frazetta museum highly to those who admire art of any kind and fantasy art in particular. Since he is the father of all fantasy art. I have quite a few touch ups and ground work but I'll have it finished before the weekend is out. Perhaps I'll have the moody pics that an image like this truly deserves.

    No sense calling it a WIP since it is almost complete. Arm bits are drying and awaiting further refinement. Great kit overall and seems to impress hobbyists and non alike. Very imposing when looked at in person. No enamels on this 100% Acrylic paint. The base will get the royal treatment with bits of grass possibly. Lots of airbrush work that is certain. Moebius certainly know how to pick a subject.
