bootneck posted a topic in The RumourmongerReading the paper this morning, I see that Hornby has won the International Licencing to sell Corgi and Scalextric-branded James Bond products in 2015.
First things first... this will not be a quick build. I am posting this to kind of force myself into finishing my Dalek build over on the Sci-Fi forum ( http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234945056-scratch-build-16-scale-dalek-an-eye-for-an-eye-and-some-painkillers-please/?p=1382230 ), and then commencing with this. Posting this will hopefully force me into finishing one and getting on with the other. I've always had a thing about the Aston Martin DB5, especially the Bond version. I'm lucky enough to own a Danbury Mint version of the Bond DB5, and recently I acquired several more versions. The first one I managed to lay my grubby mitts on was the old Aurora version. Of course, it wasn't officially licensed, so it was sold under the completely different guise of "Aston Martin - Super Spy Car" Good versions of these seem (like the original Airfix version) to go for stupid money. So, me being tight and looking for a challenge found this beast up for grabs on evil bay. What on earth am I getting myself into? These are the original photo's from the listing and you can see just what kind of state it is in. The box itself wasn't too bad considering it's about 50 years old. But as for the kit.... maybe just a tad too much glue methinks! Where do you even begin on something like this? Well, obviously, it has to be taken apart to see what we have got. Fortunately, it's almost complete. There are a few parts broken, but should be able to be scratched without too much difficulty. I also broke a couple of pieces taking the thing apart - no surprise there. I tried the soak in water, then leave in freezer method, but to no avail - there was just too much glue. I eventually discovered that the glue bonds were actually quite brittle, so, some judicious coercing and some downright forcefulness arrived at this collection of parts. As you can see I have already primed a few parts - I needed a break from my Dalek build when it wasn't going too well. At this stage I think I can rescue 95% of the parts. A few others can be scratched, but my biggest areas of concern are around the windows. I just don't know if these will be salvageable at all. The side windows aren't really a problem but the front and rear windshield may be beyond repair and I may have to try molding new ones myself. - That's a ways off yet! I have invested may hours scraping off decades old glue, with some limited success. To give you some idea of just how bad this is... here's a wheel hub and here's what's left of the ejection seat and occupant Okay, intro over, now back to my regularly scheduled Dalek build and I shall return here in a few weeks (probably!) perhaps I should also mention that since winning this on ebay, I also managed to obtain a copy of the Airfix Bond DB5 - in a slightly better state but with some parts missing - that shall also become a WIP in due course.
Hello friends! This is the Tamiya kit Tiger I Late - "Limited Memorial Edition". Add-ons included Voyager PE's, Tracks of resin from Lion Marc, hooks and some tools of J. Peddinghaus, Archer transfers and barrel gun metal of Jordi. Resin figures. Tools to make a Zimmerit are includes in the Voyager set and I have the Tamiya ones. Preparing the way for applying the Zimmerit. I used the tools and the Polyester Putty of Tamiya. Paintings: Humbrol, Tamiya and Vallejo - Pigments MIG and Mexican mark ATL/Rodin and AK Pigment Fixer. Mudguards front and rear, antena, support of MG and some hooks they can be moving. Here is the Tiger Late 007 finished. In a different focus I the Tripulation looks with a different uniforms which they used in past ocassions. (The shiny of the figures is caused for the potence of the 500 watts of my lights, in a normal view it not is visible.). I hope you like my work.
