As a result of the close-down of the UK by the British Government last night, we have made all the Buy/Sell areas read-only until we open back up again, so please have a look at the announcement linked here.
I've been working on this kit for a couple of years (lost interest at the paint stage). Had the thought of doing this conversion myself as I'd seen the movie around the same. Pretty cool to see it being done... seems to be coming together nicely.
Ooooh, that's a really nasty engine seam you have there! My own experience with Anigrand kits is a slight raising of the blood pressure if you really need things accurate, but you just have to love those subjects. Not seen this one made up before though, so very curious as to the finished article.
Hi folks, been away from here a few years due to ill health, and with modelling returning, I thought I'd join in this GB as a relaxed swing back into the fray! Seems a fitting excuse to bring this one out from under the stairs, what's not to like about the Mole? It seems a simple enough looking build, with perhaps a few tricky spots. Not many parts, but it seems accurate at first glance (I'm sure careful study of screencaps will highlight many things to fix, but as the models in the show varied I'm not going to be a huge stickler for getting it 100%) Most of the effort will be spent on the painting on weathering for this beast, if I can figure out a good way to get a 'earthy' base, I'll include that as well. Doesn't seem to fitting to have this one sat in limbo, away from the context of it's use. First thing to do will be removing the horrible seam line from the drill. I might have to strip the chrome, but for now I'm assuming a decent primer coat will stick to it nicely. That's it for now, be back soon with some progress once I kick the lazy from me.
