    Bah Humbug!

    Staying with the sculpts of John Dennett, I picked up his new release in the form of Ebeneezer Scrooge. This is the Alastair Sim portrayal from the 1951 film. The kit comes in just 2 parts ~ the bust and the base. The first decision was whether to do the figure in B&W or color. Despite the box art being in color the movie was in B&W. I spoke with the sculptor, who sent 2 colorized pics at the same time I found my own. This is the one I went with - Starting to add color - Then once again, I got into a groove painting the facial features and forgot to take WIP pics. I used a splatter technique on the base and then applied the woodland Scenics snow with a few layers of PVA. Thanks for looking.

    Red Iron's Luna 2

    Picking up from the last session, I removed those 2 bottom parts and shorten the wires. Once glued on I gave it a shot of gloss black primer and let that dry. when dry I gave it a shot of V's Metallics Chrome. The base was given black primer spray - matte this time, and then masked off the lunar soil, and gave the label area a shot of V's Duraluminum just for some contrast. The soil was then dry brushed in 3 levels of gray paint. even tho the crate was small, I tried to show some rays coming from it. And it was done. Thanks for looking.

    Red Iron's Luna 2

    Needing a break from my figures, I pulled out a relatively recent get from Red Iron Models - it's the Luna 2 . From the site: Luna 2 (E-1A series) or Lunik 2 was the second of the Soviet Unions Luna program spacecraft launched to the Moon. It was the first spacecraft to reach the surface of the moon and the first man-made object to land on another celestial body. On September 13, 1959, it hit the Moon's surface east of Mare Imbrium near the craters Aristides, Archimedes, and Autolycus. From the above, "land" is a relative term. It actually "landed" going full speed. 😉 Inside it contained a capsule of Sodium, so that when it crashed a plume of sodium rose out of the crater, hit the sunlight, and was able to be see from Earth. The 1:35 scale kit comes in 10 parts including some wire and a lunar landscape base. It was a very easy kit to build. I had it finished in 2 hours. The parts break down including one page of instructions After removing the pour plug, an interesting attachment point(s) The bus built and just before the wire antenna added Antenna added After getting the kit built according to directions, I noticed the two "L" shaped bottom parts were too long compared to illustrations. I will have to removed them and shorten the wires. You can see how small the bottom parts were.

    Thanks for the kind words guys. Mike: hehe yeah yep a bit different. 😉 But my other weakness are the odd ball planes whether it be the Luft '46 or other paper only, or too futuristic designs. 😉
