  1. EDIT JUNE 2018 - To see pictures please google sternail. Any pictures of the ship in a garden are of this build. There is also a photoshopped image of the ship with clouds in the background. Yeah, thanks Photobrokit. Pete And there's more! This one I built about a year ago, I think. There are, In the Ma.k universe, Two types of Sternail. Both Space going and operated by the opposing sides. One is large & grey, The other smaller & white (usually) So far as I know, there are only a few of these around. The small white one can be had as a garage kit (I think) But this one has to be scratchbuilt, using the few bits of information on the net. It ended up at 65cm long. So, This is a 1/35th scale, Single seat spaceship (The door is on the left side. Yes, those are Russian tank turrets at the back. This is as close as I could get to the original by Kow Yokoyama. The other models aren't armed, But I built this for my mate John and he wanted missiles. Now, Ma.k is part styled on WW2 Germany. (Markings, some shapes etc) So, Based on the Rucksetz? used by the Luftwaffe to add weapons to say, Fw190's, I 'bolted on' a couple of homemade ones. Actually a modded blue steel & a TSR2 missile! Pictures are by Johns wife, Maria. Many thanks. (Photobucket wouldn't do all of them to 640x480 for some reason?) The basic frame is model boat type wooden strips. Add a 1/48th F15, The Turrets, Drop tank halves for the hump, Various other bits, LOTS of filler & plasticard and hours of rubbing down & painting. Markings are a deaths head near the bow, Then a German Tornado sqn badge. the blue & white stripes are because John is a Scot. As always, Comments are welcome. Pete
  2. Here's my Hasegawa 1/35th scale Melusine. First model I've actually finished to completion in something like 8 years! Cheers Richard.
  3. Hello. I would like to present to you my new project. It is series of Maschinen Krieger from Hasegawa. The model is illuminated and the battery is hidden in the base. This time it's winter scenery. So enjoy the pictures. Cheers Mike
  4. Bit of a leap from what you saw on WIP to this but Sometimes that's how it turns out. As it turned out the beast wasn't too stable (as predicted) I couldn't get the autostab to work. Ahem. I cut discs from a kit box and used a product called mod podge (I think) it's like thick white glue, Slapped it on and plunged the feet into it overnight. Some paint and model railway foliage followed. I'd put kitchen foil around the cardboard, rather like a cupcake, when I removed it I found it had dried clear and vertical in places rather like splashes. Result! I then cut plasticard discs and epoxied the feet to them. Now it stands up! I also applied Johnsons Klear up to the 'knees' so it looks wet. 1/35th figure painting isn't my forte' so you'll have to forgive my crewman! Anyway, hope you like what you see here, The typ B7 Sumpfesel. It seems I didn't resize one picture. Apologies. BTW, Photobucket worked for me. Edit, The foliage looks like cricket stumps. Oops. As always, your opinion is valued and lessons will be learned, etc. Pete
  5. Given the interest in my completed builds I thought that maybe someone out there might want to see just how I come up with these things. This one will be a small walker built using whatever I can find amongst my redundant kits & bits boxes. No prizes for guessing the origin of any of those bits! I can tell you I started with a SMER 1/48th Swordfish that I bought years ago just for the floats. I chopped off the tail section and added a Wessex nose to the front. Engine unit goes on the back and tank bits on the side along with (I think) Buccaneer drop tank halves? The grey part on the right will go under the main body and was tank mudguards. The odd bit in the foreground is ex 1/24th Fw190. Next we move to a rear shot. You can see that I'd used an Otaki? Fw190 cowl to cover the Swordfish cockpit and the cowling now contains that 190 gearbox piece inside an oval ring which was part of the air intake from a muscle car. You should also make out the cupola with it's ring of vision slots and some grey tank bits along the sides. At the front I added a kubelwagen engine bay and binoculars with a crashbar. And a grey hatch has appeared on top of the nose. next up is a side view showing another tank bit added to the side. One either side actually, and at the rear bits of Sherman suspension have gone on to add interest. On the extreme right you might make out a chrome wheel which will be the pivot point for the main body and which fits into the cutout that you may just see under the body. In the foreground, meanwhile, is what I think is an Airfix Boeing Vertol cockpit floor. I have two of these which will be modified to become the feet. (I've had these for over 40 years!). And finally for now you get a better view of that wheel (From an ancient drive by wire remote control car) That and the grey bit will go on top of the white box you can see. In the foreground are what will become the upper pivot points for the legs which will go either side of the white box. The pictures aren't the best, I only have a little Nikon (fnar!) but my fumblings may inspire someone else to have a go at this subject. It keeps me going, and there aren't any rivet counters to criticize you! More soon (I hope) thanks for looking. Pete
  6. Hello, Here is my first kit in the Ma.K universe. It was really fun to do !!! Hope you'll like the result:
  7. As requested, here are some more of my scratchbuilds from the maschinen kreiger universe. An earlier build of mine, sternail, can be found on here by using the search box at the top of the page. Oddly, the ma.k universe has two ships called sternail. The first here was inspired by the LUM Camel. The body was built from the caps of three deodorant cans. The cockpit is a pencil sharpener. Legs are a balsa and plasticard sandwich. The feet came out of old hardrives. Everything else is from bits boxes. Next up, this one was inspired by the Heinkel UHU (ish) Again the cockpit is a pencil sharpener while the main fuselage was a 1/20th F1 car. The swiveling rocket motor here on the side was another type of pencil sharpener and the radome on the spine was a make up compact. Other parts are from the spares boxes. Pencil sharpeners? Here they are in their natural state. About 30p each, bulk bought in Riyadh. Nest one is based on a cheapo Russian helicopter kit bought decades ago along with part of a missile for the tail, I added drop tanks and the green bits are ex Nimrod sonar buoys. And then we come to the Jaeger Sau (fighting pig). Based on a Hasegawa submersible model which I turned upside down. The ring of fuel calls around the back was a child's bracelet I found in the street. There is a long probe on the RH side. That was a Smirnoff swizel stick but is now a linear accelerator with an ammo feed at the rear. If you look closely you'll see the carb setup from a Kubelwagen on it. More Nimrod sonar buoys are fitted too. The two sensors on the front are mounted on B-17 ball turret swivels. The black 'aerial' was a rotor blade. In a secret location in Lincolnshire.... Finally, this may not be very clear as yet but is the latest WIP. This will be another walker and is based on a SMER 1.48th Swordfish. Plus yet more bits box bits. Hope you enjoyed this lot and thanks for looking. Regards Pete
  8. Hello This is my first modelling post here "Snowman" is my latest completed model. This is a powered armour (S.A.F.S.) from Sci-Fi fiction "Maschinen Krieger" created by Japanese artist Mr.Kow Yokoyama. Snowman is one of the famous S.A.F.S. schemes in the story. The model was painted by Vallejo and MIG Ammo acrylic color, plus some MIG enamel wash and weathering products. The pilot I was trying to paint a African skin tone... not sure can you guys find it out? The last image I put my other figure aside to show the contrast of the skin color.

    Ma.k overload

    I've been asked to put these on here, So I hope you like them! I've taken basic models/objects and adapted them to fit the maschinen kreiger universe. The first one I finished last week. It was a 1/30th scale walker from Aoshima, brought back from Japan. It looked a bit 'Fairyland' to me so it was told to tighten up & be more butch. I did take prepaint pictures so you could see where bits came from. Dunno where they went! So, It's Aoshima + Schwimwagen & tank bits with spares box add ons. The Panzerschrek & their carriers are homebuilt. Now in the background you can see a weird thing with tubes. The Ma.k universe contains a hovertank called Nutrocker. The kit isn't too cheap. The original was made from kitchen spoons! This is my version. It was a computer mouse. The tubes are a nod to the Sherman Calliope. They were lollypop sticks. The intake on the top here (with the yellow stripe) was 1/24th Fw190. The back. Again the bit with the stripe was a Spitfire tropical intake. The exhaust was just bits. The two cupola's were 1/24th truck wheels sanded to fit the curve of the body. The tubes, as you can see, do swivel up for firing. Camo is late European WW2 German. Over exposed but you can just see the Tamiya 1/48th Beaufighter crewman inside. So, Here they are together, Different scales but same unit markings. Ma.k uses WW2 German ones. While we're at it, I got a Star Wars AT-ST half built from a Britmodeller a while ago. Guess what I did with it? The right 'eye' Is the end of an Enterprise engine.the left is ex Nimrod. Weapons from various kits, Hoses from guitar wire. And I added various other bit box bits. Plus that camo again This one and the Maus (Hovertank) are a couple of years old now. A rear view. I re-engineered the mech bits. Upper left is an Airfix skyraider radial! Finally, Side by side, The two walkers. I hope you've enjoyed seeing them. As much as I enjoyed building them. I do have more. Thanks for looking. Comments/likes/dislikes/queries etc welcome. Pete
