Panzerzug "Panzertragerwagen" WIP

by Spack on Wed Jun 20, 2012 8:12 am
Managed to start on the Panzertragerwagen wagon, which is a well wagon with folding forward ramp that is designed to carry a Pz 38t light tank. This wagon sits between the Artillery/Flak railcar and the Panzerjagerwagen (flat wagon with Pz IV turret).

Still needs some work around the top of the ramp, and buffers adding.

Finally arrived

by Jay on Sun Jan 20, 2013 3:46 pm
The heads got here even with the calamities of snow, I knocked together some mock ups, these won't be the final torso but gives you an idea of scale and detail. Apologies for the poor pictures, the Iphone is no comparison to an DSLR but that's off limits :(

The 'beak' holes are for tubing that will be added later. The third picture is the covered variant. For the purpose of explantion, the first two pictures are using the maxmini combat torso and legs, the third is a cadian torso with FW renegade arms.

Panzerzug BP44 First Mockup

by Spack on Tue May 29, 2012 8:23 am
To make sure that the locomotive and tender won't look too big or too small alongside the existing OO scale trains that my son has on his railway a card mockup of the Sketchup model has been made. Using the Flattery plugin it was pretty easy to unfold the model faces to create a flat printable mesh that could then be folded and glued.

This is scaled at 1:87 (which is HO scale rather than OO, but means that the train will be in proportion to the track width), and next to a small 0-4-0 steam engine looks about the right size. This card mockup will also be used to find a chassis to fit the locomotive, and I've already got donor parts for the tender chassis from an old flat bed carriage which has 6 wheeled bogies at each end (the tender is sitting on one of these bogies in the photo below).

Predator P1 Bio 1/4 scale 3D modelling continued

by Spack on Thu Mar 26, 2015 9:01 pm
Initial modelling details can be found in blog/Spack/predator_bio_mask_14_scale_modelling_b-176.html

I finally got around to working on the 3D model again, and have reached a point where I'm happy with the details and have prepared the model for printing. As well as finishing the interior venting details, the hose connector on the left temple was replaced with something closer to that used on the NECA Big Red figure (the Big Red bio is almost identical to the original P1 helmet, the only differences being the two half spheres on the forehead and the colour), and a small hose connector detail was added to the left cheek (this detail is missing from the NECA bios).

Malifaux - Avatars

by DaBoss on Sun Jan 15, 2012 10:37 am
I haven't got Twisting Fates book yet (was not going to bother), but on reading about the Avatars for each of the different Factions and seeing what the Pandora & Rasputina look like I had a bit of a compulsive purchase (nearly as bad as I have with Games Workshop)....

So I got both and have put them together - Pandora was a bit of effort as it came in 2 metal pieces and 5 resin which did not fit perfectly without a lot of shaping and cutting - but am now really happy with it.

I think Rasputina Avatar of Famine will be quite an easy one to paint, very much like what I did for the Ice Golem then flesh up Rasputina body.

Pandora will be a bit more effort but the contrast between the Tentacles and the Serpent trails will be interesting.
Love the Teenage Candy - will have to think how her clothes will look compared to her...
