Gunbots

Although they had an outing recently, here are my finished Meridian Miniatures Gunbots, decided on green, simple really.

I like these little guys, they fit in with my British Army nicely, a basic robot design, not as advanced as certain other robots I have used in the Mechanica for example.

Grey and Gray

I will be painting most of the upper hull of the GR-75 Transporter a few colours, grey and gray. Well I actually have about four versions of grey and plan to paint all the panels in different greys. I have started on the nose section, so if it goes wrong, I can just respray that bit.

Industrial Office Tower

Having designed the Industrial Processing Tower based around a Pringles tube, I thought I would design a Pringle-less tower, something that does not require munching through a pack of snacks (although having a couple of teenage girls around always helps in that respect.

This construction, the Industrial Office Tower, uses level at the same heights for the levels as the Industrial Processing Tower so they fit together nicely with the joining ramps.

There is still loads of work to do on all the boring flat surfaces, I have plenty of sketches that I will turn into designs in the next few weeks.

I have also been experimenting with a removable wall section to allow models to be positioned inside.

Hiding tabs is sometimes quite tricky, so in some places, I make a feature of it and make some interesting alternating patterns, such as where there are raised sections around the stairwells.

On the top level is large design, but I think that may be going or at least changing to something else.

The most difficult bit has been designing the stairs, they are almost finished, watch this space. Some of the supports were a bit short on this iteration and did not line up with the wall tabs.
