You will soon be able to pull up to Axiel's Wrebbit Mercedes and Race!!
Thanks guys, Zath, i actually was thinking of that too. I may just do that
This post marks a Milestone for me. This is the first time i've actually done mixed media with my model. I inserted clear plastic for the windshield and sides
Good for you! I believe in mixed media. Especially when it comes to windshields. Great job!
It also gives me practice working with the thin Lexan for my Bladerunner build planned for the near future
I am trying to find the clear paper I have read about. Everything I have seen is really translucent.
Im still working on the '32, just got Distracted the gift My baby got me for Valentines Day......she knows me too well
Back to the building
Really nice ship!! Those Lego kits get expensive. Some of them I make my son keep together. At $120 bucks, and 4 or 5 hrs. time ( on his part ) there staying together. He plays with them, a lot, but at the end of the day, no more dissolved models into the bureau full of Legos I have!
I know what you mean....Anna got me 2 kits for V-day, like I said, she knows me well, and knows what i love.
Here's the other:
And both together
I think the real cloth sails really set this off. There must be a lot of unique parts for the hull. I still do Legos and probably will till I die! I found bags of these things at Tag sales and In Connecticut, some of these people have more money than they should, and sell shopping bags full for $10 bucks or so. I clean them right out!
Time for a pause.
After attempting the front end of the '32 4 times, and failing each time. Im taking a step back from this project, putting it on the back burner, and starting a different project for now. Once completed, I may come back to this one.
But for now.......
It is a Hot Rod, make a front end that works. you aren't the only person who has had some trouble with that model. Most end up "fudging" it a bit. Just make one from scratch, like you would on a real car. I personally would probably have a bent paperclip for support hiding somewhere in there. The rest of the car looks outstanding so far..
