Michi, that black and white shot is superb (well it's all superb). How did you do the mist effect for the photo?

You can call it a lucky shot. All pictures were taken outside on a winter evening with snow all over and still snowing. I carved some runway in the snow, put everything in position and laid flat on my belly on a field. The one photo below was shot from the edge of the "runway" with the camera in the snow. Itīs simply the snow wall in the foreground that is out of focus and therefore blurs the picture.  :D

Now that you explain it, I can see it, but it's still a great shot! It looks like Dastardly, Klunk and Zilly are getting ready to fly a dawn patrol!

No, I think the sculptor wanted to do a NOT-Dick Dastardly...

I'd like to volunteer for that dangerous mission, Sir, and become a member of the Vulture Squadron!  lol

When I was a kid, we build a few planes. Turnes out I still have some of those unassembled lying around. This for instance:



I don't know how well it scales with the few pulp figures I have, but I will assemble it at some point. Its only lying around 25-30 years by now. Might as well build it.

Also - @Michi - how did you paint the googles of these airmen?

Itīs the gem painting method, I chose blue for the basic colour, but green, turquoise, grey and brown work as well. Darker colour on the upper portion of the "glass", lighter colour on the lower portion, blend as smooth as you can.
Add a dot of white to the upper edge and finally gloss varnish it.

I just noticed the Spartan Executive. :o Was wondering who makes it? In my VACW game the Black Legion has taken over the Tulsa airport as well as the Spartan School and aircraft plant across the street.

It's a Phillips 66 metal coin bank. I got it on eBay for around $20.

Thanks Michi. That sounds a little over my skills right now :). But I'll keep that in mind for the future.

That Spartan looks great!


Rufus, you may find 1/72 too small for 28mm gaming.
I personally prefer 1/48ish for my planes and cars.

Yeah probably Amalric. But I'll assemble the plane anyway to see how it looks. Besides - the dozen Models of Yesteryear cars I bought off Ebay recently at 1:43 seem entirely too big for my small collection of pulp figures :).
