This looks so good already! I notice the bottle of Revell contacta glue in your desk. Does that work on the materials you are using so far?

It work great for plastic to plastic. Not so well for foamed pvc to foamed pvc....although, where I pushed plastic rod into the soft foam, the glue works just fine.

Reading through all your posts, chaps: you are such pissers, thr lot of you.  lol

...and I thought I hid the cans of beer quite well! ;)

Not the hole punch again NOOOOOOOO :'( :'( :'(

I know....hopefully it doesn't end up the same size as the Zeppelin! :o

Looking Good

Thanks Mick.

So, as a break from doing gubbins on the back of the front section, I started building the broken away engine pod. Again just foam core and foamed pvc. There is some green stuff pushed into a circular cut out and sculpted into turbine blades. I'm starting to think my bases are going to be too small! I'm not sure if its worth cutting the base off of this and making it bigger or making a full 2x2 board with all the various bits scattered on it? ???

Just noticed the hex base, are you going to mount it all like that?

That was the original plan. Although, they now seem too small. I'm swithering on making bigger hex bases or a full 2x2' board. Not sure yet. What do you think?

For the hexes to work do they not all need to be the same size?
How would you do a 2x2' board?

I guess keeping them on multiples of hexes might make them easier to store/transport than a 2’ board, although the latter would give you more room to add extra to the base ?

As Akula says Colin, just do multiples of hex bases. The size I now need though, is going to be huge! I've totally miscalculated the size this thing needs to be. Even broken up, its going to be big! :'(



I tried a wee bit to see what the smoke is going to look like.....





Its going to need some PVA glue to make it solid.
