Spacelords and a Big Blower Tank
« on: September 27, 2014, 05:21:34 AM »
For your consideration:


http://blackwidowpilot.blogspot.com/2014/09/metal-magic-spacelords-and-other-madness.html


I'd post a teaser for those of you who simply INSIST on sneak peaks, but for some reason I can't seem to figure out the finer points of uploading an image onto this post... :?

Loving those Spacelords!  The tank looks good, but I kind of think the lip should be cut away.

Cool paint on the tank, I like it.

To do an image its easy from blogger.

In blogger:
Rightclick and "copy image address"

In LAF:
Write a post
click the image button above the smileys OR type [-img-][-/img-] (without the hyphens)
paste the image between the header/closer and wha-la.



Cheers
Matt

I wasn't mad about the lip either, but alas, for the container to hold together strongly enough, I had to leave the silly thing on, so I justified it in my mind as a running board/stowage system instead (just never got around to filling it with stowage)... :?

Matt,

alas, my Apple mouse (more of a rat, really) doesn't right click, as there's no right and left button (just one big mouse with a little scrolling ball)...

So I thought I'd experiment by dragging the image directly from the blogger page onto this page....

For a mac you just need to press ctrl and then click on the image. A little menu should appear and you 'copy image location' and then paste it between the img tags on LAF.

Apple mice with a single large button do have right click. You just click on the right side of the mouse.

You may need to enable right click in the Settings, as I can't remember which versions of Os X it is switched on by default.

Depending on the mouse, it might also be that you need to two-finger click. With two fingers on the mouse, press down as normal with your left finger. Presto - right click, and most likely a context menu opening up a brand new world of options for you. =)

I like your spacelords btw. =D

I love that you used an ear-exam cone.

Love the tank! IMO the lip of the plastic container makes it look more 'hover'.

Very nice work; I agree the "lip" looks good to me.
