1935 Campbell-Railton 'Blue Bird' Following on from my 1:18 Mercedes T80 I have also modelled Sir Malcolm Campbell's record setting 1935 'Blue Bird' in 1:18 scale. It is made using the same methods as the T80 but with an open cockpit revealing much more detail. The build is fully documented on my YouTube channel HERE. I hope you enjoy it and subscribe to my channel.
So I've been working on this piece for the past few weeks. I'm having to do this the cheap way, seeing as how I have limited funds- Scrap signage plastic(luckily, it's styrene based), 3 3/4" figures(of which I have amassed a good collection of), and random pieces of plastic I find that catch my eye have been the baseline for my materials. Here is the link to the gallery- http://public.fotki.com/cryodert/dio-stuff/ Just wanted to open this topic as a heads up for you to keep your eyes open, because I am quite pleased with what I have accomplished thus far. As a side note, I am building this piece in sections- which I have found to be easier than assembling a base first. I am not quite sure how large the entire piece will be, and I prefer not to be limited by a set amount of space at the moment. 'til next time... -Rob P.S. Oh, and to give a description of what I plan to have in the diorama- There will be a pump station set in an old industrial park, surrounded by a few aged and slightly destroyed buildings. The pump station will be manned by post-american rebellion fighters (basically remnants of american militants and service personnel after WW3) attempting to repurpose it for their own use. They will have a small security detail as lookout, and for good reason- there's a medium sized enemy patrol... coming right for them. The enemy patrol hasn't spotted the rebels just yet, but they may be in for a good fight.
