    one can order directly from 81 without problems. Shipping was included or really cheap, irc.

    Impressive and very dynamic model! Though I feel like the rider is looking quite a bit too large compared to the horse.

    Your OSL is amazing. Very effective. Not a huge fan of the light ring in the sphere between hose and weapon, though.

    Cthulhu. And sculpted by hand, not digital. Can't help it, there's just something lost with digital sculpts. Couldn't resist just another Kickstarter as always. Be fast, if you want to jump in: http://kck.st/2ImcU6x

    Tamiya 1/24 Impreza WRC 2001 with engine build

    Hi Paul (?), thank you for digging this one up. The engine kit is more suitable for road cars than for the customized rally machines. It is of acceptable quality and not too expensive. Detail is quite good and small. You'll have to decide for yourself if you'd rather live with a too small but detailed engine or if you want it to look more accurate. I ordered the kit directly from http://www.eightyone81.com/ Communication was a bit sparse, but everything arrived after a few weeks and was nicely packed. Anyone, if you wonder what happened: I finished my master thesis, switched jobs, am full time employed now and got me a house to rebuild to a modern standard. Not much model building going on anytime soon. Planning on kids we might speak of years without any modelling. I'll eventually return to the Impreza and the truck, but for now both are tucked away.
  7. yeah, that's it. Absolutely impressive engineering. But lots of the emotion in motorsports is transported by the sounds. Maybe in a few years we're able to identify cars by the sound of their electric motors. Today to me there's nothing like the deep thunder of a V8 or the buzzing of a Japanese biturbo revving to the limits, blowing flames. But then there's differences. In Drag-racing for example, or time attack races where a single car is on the road, the sound matters much more to me. With lots of cars on the track there's more potential for action, which is not entirely dependent on the sounds. I do for example enjoy a formula E race more than a F1. But that might just be me.

    Same here! Kept them like little treasures.

    Confrontation is back! Well, kind of. There's a kickstarter going on right now to get a good part of the classic miniatures back into production. Seems to be plastic this time, but why not. I'm in, always loved those miniatures and the studio paintjobs where always special and super colourful. I hope it is ok to post the link. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/996665814/confrontation-classic-the-legendary-skirmish-game?ref=discovery&term=confrontation classic

    Kingdom Death Kickstarter Wave 2 landed a few days ago. The twelve classic expansions to the core game. Holy... And this is just the beginning. The game is rated 17+ for good reasons, just google for it, if you are interested. I do not think I'd be allowed to show pictures here. I finally settled on a way to paint the miniatures - I will take an arty approach instead of painting anything in full detail. I am going to do a full black basecoat to everything and then airbrush pure white highlights, just like black and white pictures or some fine comic artwork in the style of the sin city movie. The lanterns - a constant theme across all models - may get some soft glow in warm colours to work against the harsh airbrushed shadows and lights. This way I should get a reasonably fast and extraordinary paintjob suitable for an extraordinary game while it still allows to visually push all the fine details.

    This is a slow hobby anyway. No need to hurry! Dein Nick ist auch klasse und mit hohem Wiedererkennungswert. Viele Grüße aus Krefeld, Jan

    I might be interested in a body, if you do a mold! Great topic, looking forward to your updates.

    There's also Wax Pens: http://www.greenstuffworld.com/en/amazing-tools/368-wax-picking-pencil.html Very useful for light and small parts.
  14. What kind of collectors Item is it aiming to be? - A highly detailed display only model with very accurate details and perfect high quality surfaces does not need a working suspension, but every bit that can be seen under any angle must be detailed. - A kind of functional model with "play features" like opening doors, hood and bonnet should also have a working suspension and steering. If it can be seen it should be looking like the original, but the functions could be simplyfied. - A more High quality toy like model should have lots of working features and gimmicks like light and sound. Squishiness is a must, detail could be less. Might even think of an RC-toy, or for model racetracks. - A model Kit should detail any part, working features I wouldn't expect as a builder, but everything should be detailed, no matter if one sees it after being built. Maybe this helps a bit.
  15. She's a beauty! And you did a very cool display base.
