  1. Thanks to a week off work and a push this afternoon I've finally finished my floaty boat build, Misfit 2. Based on an ancient pre-built FROG Shell Welder tanker, This build has cost me very little, mostly just paint & glues as virtually everything came out of the spares boxes. And it has provided many hours of enjoyment. If you're wondering, the Maschinen kreiger universe is on Earth 800 years in the future, and resources are being fought over. I like the Ian McQue floaty boats & I like kreiger, so, what if the seas are dried up, you have useless ships and anti gravity devices, what do you do? Now without further ado, the pictures, and this time they're mostly in focus. It's a busy day down at the dock, unloading a mixed cargo.... Notice that the lower part of the dock can't now be seen. So much for my desert simulation! The blue fold down wings provide a bit of ground effect lift at speed. This probably counts as a diorama really. Don't tell the Mods. They'll all want one. That drum doesn't seem very heavy. This blokes a Bludger!* *(Aussie speak for Skiver) That's Radar from a Revell MASH set working the crane remote control. All the figures were on the original Misfit. The sharp end, See the leaping antelope up there? This ship is a product of the Springbok shipyards. I think it's intended to be a Reindeer, I nicked some from a table at Christmas! Underneath there is the ground mapping Radar bowl, ex-Harrier steering thrusters and a wonky (rusty/miscoloured) heat exhaust from the Fwd Anti Gravity unit. Below the Springbok is a thruster. (From a toy Space Shuttle, 20p at the car boot). At the back we have a similar arrangement except the heat exhausts are ex Ju87 Night exhausts, cheap from the Big H. In the centre is the main thruster. Back at the front, the figurehead is an Eagle. Actually ex Matchbox tank kit? Nazi Eagle with a missile head placed where the Swastika was. Some clutter behind the wheelhouse. Drums, jerrycans and a bucket. Meanwhile back on the dock. See that silver thing behind the bloke? Ex Revell Dambuster Lancaster and about 50 years old. Now it's a special container of some sort. The Skipper keeps an eye on the unloading procedures. The cargo net was just some mesh and was used (along with the crane) on Misfit 1. A pretty mixed cargo, I think you'll agree. The yellow thing with the 'ears' is a screw on cap for something that I found. Here's Dockyard Matey again, He's been with this since the start. The green wire is plugged into the gizmo for power from the dock. Blue gas bottles on Ju88 bomb racks. Don't ask me what they're for though. (They were bombs at one point). Another view down the old dock. Getting bored yet? Oh, the metal U shaped thing? Staples. Probably now a special part they are delivering. A last long look down the length of the dock. Oh, I measured Misfit, 16 inches bow to stern. And in case you were in any doubt, The name on the back. These were rub down letters I've had for years. Stick them on and add a coat of matt varnish. Result. They've pretty much come out the same colour as the side numbers. The main thruster can be seen better here too. I'm not sure what it was previously meant to be though. And thanks for looking. Any comments, and or money gratefully accepted Next up, I'll be in the vehicle section, with a modified Volkswagen pick up truck. Cheers Pete

    Misfit

    Floaty boats. Well, That's the term I use. Imagine a world where the Anti gravity engine has been discovered. You need to transport goods (No roads? Seas dried up?) The only craftsmen are boat builders. So.... There are kits available, Have a look at the Remora build on this thread. But, I thought I'd have a go myself. This is my first In prog on here with pics, So be gentle with me. Hopefully this is a picture of the basic hull, With the base below. Yes, It was under a birthday cake. Next we have the hull clad with plastic card (superglued to the wood) and about 250+ dressmakers pins cutdown & superglued into drilled holes. The card was lightly scored so it followed the contours. This was a Boss Orange aftershave container. Now an Oil tank (Probably) And in place. I forgot to say the scale is 1/35th. The figure is italeri. Leaping about in time here, But here is the completed base. Note the two holes in the front face. The bare hull 'Floating' by the dock. And here is how. rememeber those holes? Add perspex rod and voila! And it eventually got painted Remember Firefly. Loved it, But that engine? Well what does an anti grav engine look like? And then painted & in place The thrusters were 1/24th Formula one car wheels at one point in their lives. The wheelhouse roof. And I think I'll leave it there. The build is more advanced now. I'll see if you like it before I post more! Comments welcome. Thanks for looking. Pete
