  1. No one here gets out alive.... The now hard to find 1/18 Great White Shark & Diver Diorama model from Pegasus Hobbies, turned into a diorama with a bit of a difference to get the most from the kit boxes contents as opposed to having to waste the unused alternative choice of head posture. The kit is supplied to be modelled as the shark and diver/cage as 2 separate free standing standalone pieces, using a choice of snapping jaw head or dormant jaw head. A few alterations to the diver and cage to get the blood splattering reminder of the might, power and aggression of these amazing beasts right up the top of the food chain.
  2. Picked up at Telford last year for £30, here is the vinyl and poly combination kit of the 1/18 Great white Shark and Diver / diving cage model. It is a fine model and a bit of a refresher to work on in-between the sci-fi stuff I have out on the bench. My intended final model will utilise both the optional heads, as the below pictures explain. I expect to have to go through at least 3 stages of filling and sanding/priming, however these photos only run through to the second stage of filling. The diver is rubber and was boiled for 5 mins and then wired into his new leg pose and had his arms cut, manipulated and filled into the new arm pose. The spare head will be used as shown, poking up from within the cage flesh chewing fun bye for now - John
  3. total construction time just under two years. From Merit SBD-3/4 kit with extensive modifications. New windshield, scratchbuilt flaps and actuating mechanism, scratchbuilt interior, twin 0.30 cals, engine, engine accessory compartment, bomb racks and fuselage interior. Skinned with pewter sheet.
  4. This Catwoman Batpod build was a follow on from the Moebius Tumbler Diorama. I wasn't happy with the cannons on the front of the Batpod, the kit ones looked a little too puny so I scratch built some new ones using some electrical gold connectors and some plastic tubing, I think it looks a lot more menacing and purposeful. I also wasn't happy with the resin cast of her hair it was too thick and looked unnatural so I filed the ends of the hair down as thin as I dared, then using my heat gun I reshaped the hair into a more natural look. I used Indian ink for her boots to add contrast also she had serrated blades on the inside of her heels in the movie however I took a little artistic license and using an old Tamiya saw blade I cynoed them to the rear of her heels, my excuse was Bruce Wayne gave her a new set of boots that were easier to ride the Batpod with LOL. I had an old vase stand that was destined for the trash I kept it for a future model base, it was perfect for this project. It was my first attempt at making a snow diorama, I used pva glue on the steps then spooned baking soda over the pva knocking off the excess then I hit the steps with hair spray lacquer, it locked in the soda and gave a slightly melted effect, I think it looks ok so enjoy the ride guys.
