Greg, promising for all the new builds ;)
15. September, 22:06
Greg Baker
Thanks guys. The work on the modelling room - or the "Monkey Business Office" as my wife has taken to calling it ;) - has stalled out a bit this week. The good news is my shipment from Korea has arrived... but the bad news is now I'm swimming in cardboard boxes. I snuck a quick peek at my "FRAGILE - BUILT MODELS" boxes, and I'm happy to report that most of my Tintin, Area 88 and Studio Ghibli projects have arrived safe and mostly sound. A few broken propellers and landing gear here and there, but thankfully nothing major has been broken. My first task will really be to get them back to shelf ready... as soon as I find a shelf.

I also stashed away my stash (OH! that's why they call it...) and I've come to realise that my house isn't as big as I thought. I'm already having trouble finding a spot for the built projects. I have no idea how I plan to display the rest of them. :D

After being reunited with my comic book collection, I've got an urge to build a few projects based on (North) American comics as well as Asian and European... so stay tuned for that~

Looks like the 3D printer arrived safe & sound, matched with a few comic ideas ... GB magic. Now, how about a set of well lit shelves under the stairs? You know next to the jungle gym, for the chimps ...

Blimey!! Respect!, much "Main Monkey Business" indeed!

I did that in my last house. Got it all finished amd then we moved. Bummer for me. Hope you enjoy yours longer than I did mine.

glad to hear all arrived in good order. looking forward seeing the magic being created again :)

Great weathering effects beautifully done. It looks so real
13. August, 06:31
Greg Baker
Oh, man.... I WISH I could take credit for it. It looks real, because it IS real. I just started this project. Technically speaking, it may not belong on Scalemates, because I'm going to refurbish an ancient diecast matchbox car as part of my Tintin projects. So the weathering is real paint off metal. I was going to put it on diecastmates.com, but I couldn't figure out how to create a project on there (and I'm not sure it's active), so I just dumped it here. I've got a plan to scratchbuild some of the plastic interior, so hopefully that counts. Sorry for the confusion.
13. August, 12:26
Chaz Gordon
as part of your TinTin series, it definitely belongs here. Plenty of scratch built and kitbashed stuff on here that has random parts.
17. August, 20:42
Matthew A
I've got some matchbox Porsches that I want to convert into the Prognoviach from Condorman.

LOL, what a missed chance.... i also thought it was your weathering :)
26. August, 17:44
Greg Baker
I should've just called this done, collected some accolades and been on my way. ;). I stumbled across a Ford Zephyr that's part of the same series. It's going to get the same treatment and turn into a Tintin taxi. ;)

My kit stash and modelling equipment is now floating on a ship in the Pacific Ocean, I traded The last of my semi-used supplies away, and I bought all the last-minute kits I could conceivably squeeze into my luggage. So, now I’m just scrolling through Scalemates to see all the cool projects my mates are up to, and plotting my own future projects. I’ve got a few “interlude” projects that I want to try... ones that require minimal tools/supplies, but I can’t decide what “real” project I want to tackle after the shackles of my move are off... I want to build them all at once! ;)
27. July, 13:34
Łukasz Gliński
Don't we all share the same problem of wanting to build all kits "asap as possible"? ;)
27. July, 13:51

well, I didn't think I was alone in that... ;)

5. August, 11:56
Greg Baker
Thanks guys. I wrapped everything very carefully, but I'm sure my first few projects on Canadian soil will be repair jobs. I've had itchy fingers the last few weeks... but amazingly my stash seems to be growing. I'm pretty sure there will be a small tower of boxes waiting for me on my new (old) doorstep. :)
5. August, 11:58
Roland Gunslinger
I wish you a smooth move! Good luck :)
5. August, 13:42
bughunter
I now that whole-stash-built-at-once wish ;) Sometime I think about solutions of specific things 4 or 5 projects ahead, with the kit untouched in stash. I think it would be better to concentrate on a actual project.

Thanks guys. I actually finished this one a while ago, but after getting a new base for the Tintin Moon Tank, I figured that the Loch Lomond Tanker deserved a bit bigger base. It was looking a bit squished before.
12. July, 11:24
Peter Hardy
Like fine wine, improving with age. Enjoyed another look Greg.

better indeed :)

Choppa Nutta
Ah how strange ... Loch Lomond was where my dad died in a helicopter crash he was piloting about 28 years ago ...
13. July, 21:46
Greg Baker
That is a strange coincidence indeed. Loch Lomond is Captain Haddock's whisky of choice, so that's the Tintin connection. Unfortunately, a terrible connection for you. I'm sorry to hear that.
13. July, 23:08
Choppa Nutta
Ah just one of those things hey, and it was a long time ago but thanks for your good wishes anyway.
Sorry for the downer, anyhow, to brighten the mood a little it is a beautiful place though and I like whisky too ...... and Tintin of course !! ;)

Just had a DVD arrive from Korea - it's the brilliant French film That Man From Rio (1964). Heavily influenced by Tintin it went on to intluence Lucas and Spielberg.

Chaz sounds like you tried the wrong kind of modelling

This thread has kind of taken on a life of its own. Most of my modelling stuff will get packed away and shipped by sea. I'm just plotting for a survival kit (pun intended) to bring with me in my checked luggage.
3. July, 12:45
Nils Steyaert
i wa quite inspired by your idea, and i have a number of spare planes aswell, these im gonna use in my Area 88 2.0 project. i believe you will like it :)

Droopy1984
9. July, 08:48
Greg Baker
Sign me up for that Nils! I also have an (old) idea (that I haven't forgotten) to re-imagine the iconic Area 88 planes as WWII "equivalents". So... a A6M Zero for Shin, and F7F Tigercat for Mickey... a P-47 Thunderbolt for Greg, etc... I already built Shin's Crusader as a Corsair... but I'd like a do-over on that one. ;)

Not sure I follow... there are three sets of three (so nines tracks on either side. Which ones front and back?
6. July, 13:29
Martin von Schreckenstein
wow. looking forward to this
6. July, 13:33
Łukasz Gliński
Thought you can skip the mid part of the internal tracks, no-one will ever see it anyway...
Not sure that cuts the expenses, but the workload maybe.
6. July, 13:59
Choppa Nutta
haha, well I did actually go and look at a review of those AS-90 tanks and I did find myself thinking -
"mmm, a fine collection of left over greeblies" :D

The kit bashing thoughts that went through my mind went something like...

make the turret as per and use the upper hull and sprues to carve up into four legs for a squad of spider tanks or.....

use two turrets back to back for the basis of a mech suit Ma.K. style ish or .....

use four turrets and barrels as four shoulders and legs, take two upper hulls back to back for the basis of the body and greeblie up and use those spare decals to decorate etc. or ....

make a space freighter in the esque of Chris Foss and cut up everything for some interesting surface detail .....

I can see some speeder bike potential in there too :)

I think I might need more kits for all the ideas floating through my head !! haha :D
6. July, 15:15
Choppa Nutta
Another idea that springs to mind is that this made make one very cool coffee table if you were to scale it up to 1/144 scale :D :D :D
6. July, 15:20
Greg Baker
I had a feeling it was going to look like that... I had some similar thoughts... a walking four gun barrel monster... a Star Wars Death Star dio for my 1/144 collection of Bandai kits? Who knows?

After studying the images of the carrier a bit more, I think he tank treads will have a sort of tray fit over them, so none of the tops of treads will be visible. That will likely mean I can repurpose their unseen treads elsewhere. If I really want to push it, I could probably use the same tank kits for the middle front and back. If I do that, I'd need 5 kits total - 3 three for all the outside edges, and two for the inside front/back. That might work. One of the reasons I chose this kit to work with is that the tank treads are plastic and separate pieces (not a rubber strip), so I have total control over their placement. Or at least that's what I tell myself. ;)
6. July, 15:27
Choppa Nutta
Well you do have a gift for solving those kind of problems :)
