Thanks gents  :)

So, found most of the wip pictures and all of them are still in the state they are in these photos  lol

First off is a torpedo neff. This one only need the aerofoils and tail prop doing before it can be painted. I've made some aether/air torpedoes as well but I can't find them  ::)





Then we have a little cargo skiff/neff. Actually complete but I don't have any decent photos of it.




A bit of fun and whimsy for this next one (even though neffs are total whimsy anyway), a flying Chinese junk, or a Flunk. I really fancy digging this one out again and finishing it off soon and maybe making some attack sampans to go with it  lol


Some underwater fun now, an aquaneff (yes, I know it's really a submarine but aquaneff sounds so much better  lol). Not too much left to be able to finish it off but I got a bit stuck on the 'cockpit' and left it there.



And finally for the wips is the Mikasa. Hopefully the unprimed shots make sense. Lots to do on this one and I should get it out and finish it as it might make an appearance at Salute next year...





Onto New Victoria for the next updates including the viaduct  :)

Truly awe-inspiring. The Junk is my favourite of the lot, very Miyazaki with those propellers.

Belated thanks  :)

Something new for Mars. These have been in the painting queue for several months now but I finished them off today (in between other stuff). The figures are the Japanese from my small Boxer rebellion range with Perry plastic British heads.

The Royal Interplanetary Society.



And the flag for the noble venture. The honour scrolls are for the Moon, Mars, Phobos, Deimos and Venus. There’ll be plenty more to add in the future  >:D



There will be a few more units, some transports and ground armour and potentially a neff or two  :D

And some civvies/scientists...

And a headquarters building  lol

Can you see where this is going?  ;)

Stunning! I cant even find words to praise the magnificence (both in size and modelling/paintig skill) of this beauty!
