Jenny, top drawer, when I tell guys how good you and Laura are, they don't believe me, that is until they take a look! You guys are great conversation subjects. You are so unique!

Marvelous , just marvelous. One more great little lesson to go into my little mental tool box. Very Happy

Have you thought about putting this in the " Top Tips" section so all the silly people that aren't watching everyting you do here can see it? Question

Cool

Thanks for the lovely comments everyone , I will copy the stuff to the Top Tips section for you later Very Happy .

Well I finished the commander figure Very Happy from Neo Grade , unfortunately I bumped him as I went to photograph him & his index finger fell off Crying or Very sad & I cannot find it !

So I added some brass wire & coated it with Mr Surfacer 500 & I will fix it up when he dries .

The head is a Hornet one , not through a fault to the other one , it was the expression I was after . I used the kit cap with the head removed with a router in my dremel .

I added the hair from Magic Sculpt epoxy sculpt .

Excellent job on the downpipe ! Very convincing!

The wood is also well represented!

You girls keep us on our toes! Smile

Sad about the figure... I hate when something like that happens! Extra job! Mad

Jennys Build : Dragon Marder II ALL FINISHED SEPTEMBER 6th !!!!!! - Page 9 Empty One work of art after the other

Post  tigertanktoo on Sun Apr 26, 2009 9:21 pm

Jenny, this entire "in progress" build has been absolutely beautiful. There has been metal bending, pipes rusting, buildings getting bob's sponged style, wine consumed (had to drink the wine to use the foil for the gutters right?), fences faded, bent PE posts, sponson's spun up, heaps oh hasps made, heads swapped, goats milked and fingers broken off, not to mention every creature on earth called off trying to guess what the mystery figure was going to be. I have just been through every post for this subject and was completely entertained. The Marder is looking great and I can't wait to see it finished and on the diorama. I want to thank everyone who added a reply to this post for keeping me in stitches tonight. And the pictures of the Italian landscape are beautiful and going on my screen saver. Keep up the great work and have fun. That's what this hobby is all about, FUN. Later tomaters.

Dear Jenny:

Your work is very nice. I like the way you have painted the building. Tha balcony is a little piece of art.

I´m very, very sorry, but I can not say the same about the downpipe ... Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed .... probably I´d made a 90 angle fold on the upper "U" channel to the main wall instead the way you solved it crossing the lateral, and really beautiful wall of the balcony ... it´s just my opinion, anyway.... Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

I will use the same technique for painting wood parts as yours are REALLY nice.

Congratulations!

Sounds like you need the little purple haired fella to make a visit to your place and check your model building area for that lost finger. That's why I hired him. Great for finding small parts. Good luck with the rest of your project. It is really turning out "Great". I love it. Later tomater.

Mervyn is always ready to travel. As I will be on vacation starting next week, his services will not be required. He will be seeking temporary employment while I am away. You could always get that t-shirt for him while he's visiting. Think about that for a little bit and let me know. I can get a cheap ticket via the US Postal service and dispatch him this week. Later tomater.

Post  Jenny Ryan on Mon Jun 08, 2009 1:21 pm

Well I have been away from this build while building my Teeney Weeney Braille Tiger but I am back in full build mode again . I am painting all the interior stuff as well as interior stowage . Here is my first thing finished , the Aphon Transmission .

Jennys Build : Dragon Marder II ALL FINISHED SEPTEMBER 6th !!!!!! - Page 9 AphonTransmission2
Here is the real thing , note the fire extinguisher bracket & the bracket for the oil can . It is always important to remember that I am modelling a fully functioning vehicle so all the stowage should be shown in situ , unlike the often empty stowage racks of Museum examples .
