PostPosted: Sun Feb 19, 2017 3:31 pm    Post subject: a new project Reply with quote

hello I felt in love with a model in the reader gallery from the yellow contest;
this one:
http://www.starshipmodeler.com/contest/CONTEST14/scratch_18.htm

I have decided to build something in the same shape and color
I am afraid that it will be almost a one year project.
the length will be nearly 70cm.

The first work: a dorsal trench, based on the backside of two old HO train cars

My reaction was two-fold:

1) Great Work! Looks ... interesting, in a "Look at that! That's cool!", non-Oriental sort of way. Smile

and

2) Oh, wonderful - now I've gotta buy train models in addition to ship, aircraft, tank, car, and sci-fi models. I'm gonna need a bigger ... cupboard. Wink

<grumble> My wife is gonna disown me. <grumble>

Very Happy trains may be very small ; Nscale 1/160 and smaler Z scale 1/220

there is another tiny scale 1/500, but it is a bit far from modelism

you can build a Z layout on a pizza box. You dont need a cupboard Razz

Great progress. Those hull pieces look good, and nice start on the bridge. Pieces can come from anywhere!

the price for theese cartridges is about 30$ for 100 (thx google); a bit expensive if you dont drink this coffee , and you must have the special Lavazza machine to use them.
you can have them in the us or canada


personnaly I had them in an wastebin of an office during a job meeting. (people were looking at me strangely)
Very Happy if I find some more, I will tell it to you
