Transporter Detail

The interior gubbins has been finished off, the screens have been added and it is just about finished. I think.

The bridge has three screens on the main wall, and looks quite good.

The back wall of the bridge has a famous nebula display…

The green screen displays are not brilliant, but taken overall, they will have to do.

The EVA suits came up very nice.

The rear part is the engineering section with some Star Trek screens.

The Med bay area with medical bed and medical screens.

I may add a few more lengths of wire as it looks quite good.

When the lights are on, the red tubes illuminate nicely.

Now I need to work on the landing pad for it.

Nearly Done

Some of the large transporter wall decor are separate resin bits, mostly from Ainsty and Antenocitis Workshop. These have been painted as individual components rather than trying to paint them glued into position.

I do like Antenocitis power junctions with the tinted plastic tube.

Next up are some Ainsty bits, a computer bank, a spacesuit (painted in 2001 colours), some oxygen/chemical tanks and a medical bed.

I have cheated a bit and used some printed screen images for monitors dotted around the ship. I still have two more do, but the finished screens have some displays from well known movies and tv.

The interior of the ship is nearly finished, I think.

I have to hope that some inking and the addtion of the wall components will bring it all together.

Quinjet Quick Build

This is yet another cheap eBay purchase that I thought would make either good scenery or a good flyer for a game, an Avengers Quinjet. I did not buy it new in a box, but this is how it was originally sold…

The shape is good, I am not planning to do anything much with this model, but I did want some undercarriage as I did not like the way the fuselage just sat on the ground.

I have cut some mdf wheels so I thought I would make some chunky undercarriage.

It was a bit too chunky for my liking, so I added some bodywork to cover most of it up.

I am going to add some magnets inside the wings for weapon mounts and then I need to decide if I am going to add any flying base mount before I glue the two halves together.

What’s On The Table?

The upper hull is about done.


The nose cone is removable and reveals…

…an embarkation point for models.

As you can see, I added a few rivets…

…and a missile launch module

The engines will get glued into a fixed position, when they rotate, the paint on the supporting arms gets scratched off as the engine body moves, a pain in the butt.

Looking good, time to start on the lower hull.
