Re: Scotian Shipyards

I've been at a loss as to a "good" paint scheme. Grays have been done and done to death; yet I want something not-gaudy, something business-like, because Traveler is all about the business of running one's own starship (at least, the way I play it). So one wants a memorable paint combo, one that is ...

Re: Who's ready for a new Challenge Build?

Well, I feel dumb. For some reason I had it in my mind that 30 Sept was the deadline, not 1 Sept. :oops: :oops: So, in common with a lot of folks in this challenge, I'm not done. Painting to do, and all that. You know what happens when you rush a paint job? Fingers become salamis; "dexterity" and "a...

Re: Scotian Shipyards

Last weekend I got no work done due to attending a wedding in Newfield, NY just outside Ithaca. We stayed at a great B&B - Enfield Manor - less than a mile from the venue, the Treman Centre - an old barn converted to a party venue with a honeymoon/wedding night suite in the former hay loft. I must s...

Re: Scotian Shipyards

I was really hoping to have something to show for this weekend. However, there are other things happening. My dear friend SiaoMouse is back in the hospital for the fourth time with a recurrent brain tumour that affects his optic nerve, among other things. His girlfriend, Nikita - also a dear friend ...

Re: Scotian Shipyards

Thank-you, ptitrainrouge. I'm just having fun with it. :) Yes, that's a turret. It was for another build, originally, but it fit well here, so ... parts is parts, n'est pas?

southwestforests, in my mind the word "Inimical" is kinda defined as "something bad, a thing we do not want."

Re: Scotian Shipyards

Whilst awaiting a package from MicroMark, I thought to work on the Phaeton's landing legs. Pic 60 I realized that with the ventral turret in place, the Phaeton will need landing legs with which to sit upon my display shelf - so legs we must devise. This is a first attempt. Depending on how these tur...

Re: Scotian Shipyards

The Fae Mk II is moving right along - I feel that I'm close to done.

(Again, sorry for the quality of the pictures - I am a ham-handed photog at best, despite the best efforts of digital camera technology.)

Re: Scotian Shipyards

The nice thing about holidays is the added modeling time, especially if the invited family members bail on their invitations, thus reducing the barbeque time to a minimum. :)

I worked on the Phaeton

Re: Scotian Shipyards

I'm not sure what happened. I somehow lost the post with the Fae Mk II pictures #15-21 ... Since they're of a now-abandoned direction, no problem, really - just perplexing. Moderators, if you can find that post I'd kinda like to have it up here again. :) If you can't find it, no worries, I guess, ot...

Re: Scotian Shipyards

New direction, part duh. I realized that I'd kinda lost the focus of the build, but I think I'm back to facing front again. The Fae Mk I is the troop-ship, with the Fae Mk II being the gun-ship of the pair - I kinda lost sight of that. So back into the parts bin with the fans, and on with figuring o...

A most unepected greeblie source

I was at my local "pretentious stuff for the house" store looking for my favourite scented candle that only they stock - Ginger Peach. With the candle I also bought some tea lights in the same scent. The point? The tea lights are not clad in thin metal, but in clear plastic cup that is apparently im...

Looks like it's coming along nicely - always good to see Traveller getting some respect. It's always been my favourite SciFi game - mostly due to how many ways the game can be played. There're always the "bang you're dead" players, but I knew one guy who was so into accounting that the games he ran...
