    'Make a Deal' Diorama

    Hi Tiking, I missed this one somehow. Superb work as always. Love the burnt out interior, the ash and rust. What did you use for the ash? I'm guessing it's fixed in place and won't disappear with a sneeze? Rearguards Badder

    'Make a Deal' Diorama

    Uber noob and currently part way through my first ever model (Revell Mk1 Golf GTi) to see how i get on with things. Seeing this and the Burnt out truck has got me itching to get cracking.

    MAN - Burnt Out Cab

    The tyre on the right is a flat. Difficult to see with all the ash surrounding it. And yes, I got the idea from a reference photo off the net. As a matter of fact, I found quite a few photos like that roaming around the net.

    MAN - Burnt Out Cab

    Thanks. Actually, the right has a flat. Difficult to see it. With all the ash surrounding it. It was more prominent before adding enough ashes.

    DIORAMAS I WOULD LIKE TO BUILD

    Just reminded me of the song, "Three wheels on my wagon "

    'Make a Deal' Diorama

    Really enjoy seeing the rusted/burnt out/decrepit styling. They're inspiring and make me want to give it a go.

    MAN - Burnt Out Cab

    Utterly fantastic. Amazing skill and execution of observations. Agree with Steve about the offside tyre.
  14. Here is the platform for the Short Range Theodolite and collimator, this sits at the head of the missile when it is flat in the hangar. Due to selective compression I am not including the Long range Theodolite. Apparently these were for the alignment of the missile. Each missile had two possible targets and so it needed to be aligned correctly. Liquid Oxygen was quite difficult to handle and as well as exhaust pits a shower was provided for staff use in case of mishap. The staff did wear protective clothing.

    Good lord that is astonishing! I'm used to seeing your marvellous trucks Charles, but this takes things to a new level!

    MAN - Burnt Out Cab

    Remarkably convincing.

    MAN - Burnt Out Cab

    Incredible, certainly convincing enough that I don't want to question or criticise any aspect of it, save maybe , would the right tyre be as complete as that? Steve.

    That's stunning tiking....
  20. I have been experimenting lately with different burnt out effects lately. As you can see in some pics I have tried simulating carbon fibers as they literally tear into almost thread-like material, by using disinfection wipes. It looks 'OK' but not quite perfect. I have added more modulation effects on the cab and more weathering on the overall cab and truck as a whole. I think , I am satisfied with the results , especially, after taking some outside photos of the model. What do you guys think?

    Model of a model club display 1/12

    That is a really cool idea! And very well executed too!

  23. Yose75, did it need to be so high? See what I did there? Only just found this thread. Great stuff. Superb Chieftain. Only the second one I've seen with this camo. Personally, I'd use paster for the paving slabs, and as for the wall sections, you should have made latex moulds of them so you could make plaster casts of those in the future. You've found some great figures and street furniture there BTW, Looking forward to seeing this progress. Rearguards Badder

    1/76 Thor Missile Site

    Yes, Hemswell was a Thor missile site, it was the group HQ for the Linconshire wing for the Thor sites. The Thor missile site at Hemswell was built on the former runway after most of the missiles were flown into there. Once the runway was closed the Thors were then flown in and out of Scampton which was was a couple of miles down the A15. A C-133 delivering a Thor into Hemswell famously over shot the runway and ended up straddling the B 1398 on the edge of the Lincoln Cliffe.. The Hemswell Thor civils enginnering works are the are believed to be in the the most extant of the former Thor sites in the UK and I believe are now listed. Thomo.

    1/76 Thor Missile Site

    I have read that RAF Hemswell in Lincolnshire was also a Thor site. I now live there in one of the former Officers Quarters. It will be good to see what it actually looked like.

    1/76 Thor Missile Site

    Great work to date. I grew very close to two Thor missile sites Coleby Grange and Bardney and have very vague recolections of them and I have alway been fascinated with the sites and the history. I assume you are au fait with the two John Boyes books and Jim Wilson's book on Thor? All three come with the highest recomendation. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Project-Emily-Thor-Irbm-Raf/dp/0752446118 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Thor-Ballistic-Missile-Kingdom-Partnership/dp/1781554811 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Thor-Ballistic-Missile-Kingdom-Partnership/dp/1781554811 I recommened this DVD, which includes 35mm film of a UK Thor base on the Thunder in Waiting short in glorious colour. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Thor-Ballistic-Missile-Kingdom-Partnership/dp/1781554811 I have a couple of BW models (snagged just before they shut up shop) and Belcher kits tucked away for a rainy day. Watching with interest. Thomo.
