Yet another spare Karman model, in this case Cornelius, allowed me to convert another for use in Rogue Stars.
I have not worked out a profile for this chap yet, but I reckon he will work out as a lot of points.
Nicky Hayden, 2006 MotoGP World Champion and one of the nicest blokes around, passes away after a cycling accident.
I have been fortunate enough to see him race all over Europe since 2003. He will be missed.
220mph on a MotoGP bike, easy.
Cycling in Italy, too damn dangerous.
Hardly the most exciting update, but I have finished some markers to be used to mark the possible position of a tunneling machine.
Things have been a bit slow with my King Buggy conversions as I had to find some larger magnets to fix inside the wing section.
I have now rebuilt the wings and am pretty much ready to rebuild the fuselage and undercoat them. I may paint the inside of the cockpit before I glue the fuselage together and then mask the cockpit to spray the rest.
I went to see Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 yesterday with the family. Quite enjoyed it, but it did not grab me as much as the first one did.
The special effects are almost too much, there is sometimes so much going on that it is difficult to keep to with what is actually going on. It must be very difficult to act in one of these movies as it must nearly all be green screen on set. There are some good gags, but I did feel it tries too hard to be funny.
Still worth seeing.
The Reaper range of figures covers just about every genre, I have a good few from most of the collections. Their sci-fi range includes some armoured troopers that I have used in several different game systems, most recently in a Grey Knights Retinue and a Rogue Stars Space Cops crew.
I have long been a fan of Kev White’s models and I have had a small band of the Grymn knocking around for ages. They were painted many years ago and could do with being touched up and inked for Rogue Stars.
The larger chap here is Geezer, armed with a rather substantial machine gun. Not sure I need to touch up the old paint job on him so much, I quite like the way he looks as is.
