  1. A few more photos of the resin crab before it starts being assembled
  2. I 99% sure that that is precisely what they have done - the crab is far too finely details to have been sculpted - I am pretty sure a real crab has been dissected and parts cast individually with some clever parts from the spares box added to tool them up.
  3. Looks like this kit of mine is one of a series of 3 designs available - SII Garage Kits
  4. Looks like you've executed Professor Yaffle from Bagpuss and used his head here Brian?
  5. Don't ask why but this suddenly looked appealing to me so I bought it online last month. Its a superbly casted crisp edged resin kit, I'm not sure of the scale but I think 1/72 scale figures would work well with it on a beach landing type diorama perhaps. weird or what....?
  6. superb - yet again another masterpiece from the top of your workbench
  7. Looks superb, totally refreshing subject and superbly pictured and illuminated tip top
  8. many thanks - I'm glad you like it Thank you I thought you might like this one Rockpop - thanks for the words
  9. This build was a real journey but made easier with the Christmas and New Year holidays which gave me the time to hand paint all that horrible silver scroll work on the Nautilu - it's all done and complted and over on the RFI pages, but here's a few shots to close off with Reaper Bones 25mm Great Kraken kit head over to the RFI pages for more photos of the finished fishy tale..
  10. Here is the completed diorama of the Reaper Miniatures Bones 25mm Great Kraken and the very expensive and hard to find original (i.e. not a resin knock-off copy) WAVE Models 1/700 models Nautilus as depicted in the film 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' I added some 5mm glass reptile eyes to the Giant Kraken to bring it to life. Thanks for looking in. The Nautilus box art (WAVE Models) The Reaper Bones box art And now the completed Diorama badged 'Nemo's Nautilus and The Great Kraken' Thanks for dropping in for a look John
  11. looks great - it reminds me of the buzzing sound the thing made - great model - and nicely presented.
  12. What a great choice of kit and livery to start with there - I'm always glad to see our Chatham Historic Dockyard livery on the assembly line. Good luck with the rest of the build, don't let yourself not be tempted into making the BEA variant straight afterwards ! 26 Decals recommended for that version. Did you know that the BA/German Wings kit you have built is actual quite rare these days and can command upper market prices?
  13. Clash of the Titans - The Nautilus in a real double tangle of tentacle's
