    No-one would have believed, in the last years of the 19th century, that human affairs were being watched from the timeless worlds of space. No one could have dreamed that we were being scrutinized as someone with a microscope studies creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. Few men even considered the possibility of life on other planets. And yet, across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this Earth with envious eyes, and slowly, and surely, they drew their plans against us.

    So for my third model I thought I'd do something completely different from the house models I'd built so far and this certainly was, barely a straight line on the whole thing.

    Learning curve, meet deep end, deep end this is learning curve. Hadn't intended to do two of them, but I was struggling and feeling out of my depth so much on the first one I figured I'd make a hash of it so decided to use the first one as a learning experience and build a better second one. As it turned out the first one was alright but I thought why not do two and make the second one even better.

    Also being just slightly off white I couldn't do much covering up so I had to be fiendishly precise, but very enjoyable none the less. Will probably do a diorama after Christmas with these two, until then I'm on to some Christmas things.

    I had the chance to met Jeff Wayne himself personally a couple of years ago, after his concert of "War of the worlds" in Oberhausen, Germany. That was sooooo cool!

    I like your paper war machines!
