  1. How on earth did I miss this thing? Looks great, I haven't heard of the game though. Going to have to look into it.
  2. I picked up another Revell Monogram ICBM display set, several gundam models, and some styrene for a large scratchbuild eventually. I wanted a 1/12 F16 cockpit model but it's not in the budget, wish i still had the old one from when i was a kid.
  3. I wish we had one of these nearby. It's mail order or the craft shop for paint as the nearest hobby lobby is an hour one way. Luckily years ago i bought a lot of action figure customizing supplies on a site for custom figures and got a ton of paints from Citadel and Game Workshops. I need to get some vallejo sealent as my friend in canada sent me some.
  4. My attention span and bad habit of rushing a project. The lack of scifi entries at the local contest/swap meet, it's been a while but last time it was nothing but military and a few cars covered in after market parts that won.
  5. I agree. After 200 years engines would have been torn down for fuel and interiors for who knows what. It'd be that way in the real world too i'd assume. If it burns or keeps you warm it'd be salvaged. This is good as I am really horrible at putting engines inside these things as they never fit right lol.
  6. I'm doing several builds based on wrecked cars and trucks from the Fallout post apocalyptic game series. You never see the engines of these things in game as most of them have been stripped for parts over the 200 years after the bombs hit. My question is should i go out of my way to detail the few that still have the engines but you don't see them or just do enough so that it looks right? A few of them are nuclear powered like the old Ford Nucleon was going to be so for those i'm making a reactor to show off. I figured even if i put an engine in it after 200 years it'd be picked over and the smaller parts having rusted away. Opinions?
  7. My friend didnt' believe me how massive the B29 kits are at 1/48 until i put my xbox controller next to it in a photo. I have the Revell but they look pretty much the same and I'm betting have the same issues. I'm glad i'm holding off on putting it together as i want to keep an eye on this thread.
  8. A 71 monte carlo so i wouldn't have to modify i 70 monte kit, the Ford Nucleon with detailed engine.
  9. I noticed this too when messing around with my giant Revell one. I have a pair of 1:144 from Minicraft and i'm assuming they have this issue too but it's so tiny i doubt anyone will notice. It's a nice little kit other than they give you the cockpit floor but no seats to go in it.
  10. I'll look into it, if nothing else i'll go with the green we repainted it. None of the factory colors were all that great but the green was rough and the matching green interior was way out there lol.
  11. I found a couple that i bought cheap just to have in the parts box and even lucked out to get a new in the box 70 carlo i can mod into a 71. I found the original paint chart for the 71 too, just have to match that god aweful green color to a model paint lol.
  12. I'm going to do 2 versions of this crashed plane: the real crash which i have a pic of here and the one from the Fallout New Vegas game, in the Fallout Universe the plane didn't have nearly as rough a time. The colors are different as they didnt' go photo realistic in the game yet they did include a full cockpit you can see if you look in the windows. Anyhow I was wondering how best to replicate the colors of a sunken plane, the real one has layers of silt on it and is a tan color but i wasn't sure if going with silver for the original skin then tan would be best or not. I'm going to paint both planes the same as the one in the game looks more like camo than dirty. Anyhow ideas are appreciated.
  13. if I had the talent at wood working i'd make a wooden one to mold and do either resin or find someone to vacuform it as a kit with props or jet engines.
  14. And it would just be betting to be turned into various modified versions like a VTOL and such.
