EBay Wonder Buy Restoration Blog

Ok, seeing as how everyone wanted to see the progress of my Ebay restoration, I figured I would try my hand at this Blogging thing and make one out of it. Lets start with the original photos:

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).

Rocks and ruined temple Bases.

by Cain Tiberius on Sun Feb 24, 2013 6:41 pm
Ok so I better get round to posting this.

Rocks

Start of by cutting shapes out of various sizes of balsa wood. And stack them up gluing them into your desired size/shape.

Then cover the whole thing with Quick Drying Polyfilla. I thought this was a good idea :-

Board Games - Mantic Dwarf King's Hold

by Baragash on Sun Apr 10, 2011 10:41 am
So assembling Dwarf King's Hold is part of my Q2 Hobby Challenge

Just finished the 10 Revenants (Armoured Skeletons) for the game as well. There's also a Pit of Souls (used in the game) and a Pile of Bones (you get counters for these, but if you had enough Mantic skellies, as I do with a 1k army, you could use "actual" piles), and a Skeleton Rat (used in Kings of War).

6 of the models on the sprue are sculpted Revenants, the other 4 are Skeleton Torsos with blinged up heads and armour pieces to be stuck on (which works fine IMO).

They were nice models to put together:

Bara's adventures in dipping

by Baragash on Thu Jan 26, 2012 11:11 pm
Little experiment in dipping on a "red shirt" model:
Image

Method:
Spray white
Usual base technique
Brush on Quickshade Medium
Clean brush in white spirit
Pick out collar in Chainmail
Light drybrush of Bleached Bone
Light drybrush of Skull White (inc base)

Job done :)

(Well I need to tidy the rim and do a quick wash on the Chainmail, but yeah)

Hopefully this will develop into a speedy appearance of my Tomb Kings :)

Thanks Matt :)
