gorbygould Thanks very much Alec. I'm pleased that you enjoyed my efforts, although, a little concerned that someone may actually follow my advice. It's never done me any good. :D
As you enjoyed that, I'll let you into a secret – I've decided what my next scratch-build is going to be, Google 'holt 150 ton field monitor'. It's going to be a whopper!

You're right, this one didn't seem to go down that well on Brexitmodeller (A very unfortunate name – but the 'Brexit' bit has nothing to do with this 'leaving Europe' business). It's only got a very small membership (I don''t think the name helps) but they're are a great bunch of nut-jobs who rarely take anything seriously. Which is why I like it. I usually repeat my stuff on Britmodeller as well, and it got a much better reception there.
17. February at 15:19:31
Alec K Wow! That looks very ambitious. Send us a link to your WIP thread on Brexit or Britmodeller when you get started so we don't have wait until it's all over
18. February at 03:21:07
gorbygould Will do Alec.

bughunter gorby, just found it - well done mate Looked into your build report: nice, but you should offer your spray booth a new filter ;)
25. February at 18:06:48
25. February at 18:08:27
bughunter gorby, regarding your new project - search here or Google 'russian tsar tank'. Saw a model at a exhibition, very impressive ;)
25. February at 18:33:25
Nathan Dempsey What a great build Gorby! I'm glad you persevered with this build.
25. February at 18:46:40
gorbygould Thanks very much mates. :)
Bughunter: Yes it is very, very impressive and I did give it some thought, but to do it justice it needs to be built by a significantly better modelled than myself. Someone like Angel or, errmmm, let me think, eerrrmmmm, are yes, BUGHUNTER! Go on, I dare you. ;)

JD You're too kind gorby, since the spotlight is on you here. My last post was a flop, but because of kind people like you, I'm not afraid to show where my skills are. A little embarrassment is a good kick in the ass. You got yourself another follower!

gorbygould Thanks Micky.
I'm surprised that this one keeps cropping up. As they were my first builds they certainly aren't the ones I'm proudest off.

Spanjaard looks really good. would love to have a closer look at the 262 and the stuka :)
12. January at 01:04:31
gorbygould Thanks for all the nice comments mates. :)
I'm not worthy (plainly a load of tosh, but I need to keep up the pretence of looking humble). :D
Spanjaard: The Stuka is in my Albums and the 262 is too shy to show it's face in public, so I'm afraid I can't show any more photos of it. ;)
12. January at 16:34:03
Spanjaard yes, i have seen again the album of the stuka, very nice indeed. i will have a look at gain, when i do mine one day

gorbygould Thanks very much Bernhard. :)
Alex: I did consider doing the XF-85 Goblin, but I really enjoyed doing the twiddly bits on the steamer. I also quite enjoyed making it up as I went along, rather than building an exact miniature of reality. Which is probably a complete anathema to most of the modellers on ScaleMates.
24. December 2019 at 15:30:52
Chris Greathouse You should scratch make vehicles from the animated movie, Steamboy... My all time favorite steam era type movie. Even if you don't like animated movies, this one will still suck you in, it's so good :) So many funky vehicles. If you haven't seen it, you might find it online free, but is totally worth the couple dollars from a streaming service. I would love to see you make attempt Ray Steam's Monocycle. Youtube Video

24. December 2019 at 18:45:53
gorbygould Thanks for the suggestion Chirs, I'll have a look into that. :)
I hope you have a happy Xmas to all you good'un's out there in ScaleMates land.
25. December 2019 at 07:28:43
wilky You could make a Miles M52

25. December 2019 at 10:32:48
Spanjaard it certainly looks great to me!
25. December 2019 at 20:47:10
Chris Greathouse What would be cooler?? Another awesome aircraft (tons of aircraft on scalemates), or an awesome steampunk monowheel that's scratch built?
25. December 2019 at 21:34:22

Nigel Not wishing to be a "history nazi", but the curtains aren't as outlandish as you might think: (second row, seventh image)

The googly eye, on the other hand... ;)
16. November 2019 at 20:29:47
gorbygould Thanks mates. :)
Nigel: The curtain decals came with the kit. The googly eyes were an after-market resin detail update set because I wanted to go that extra mile to make it as (in)accurate as possible – very, very expensive, nearly 50p for 50!!!! So I've got plenty more in my googly-eye stash. I wonder what a Stuka would look like with googl…… ;)
17. November 2019 at 09:38:39
David Andrs I hope this is not your last WWI build...
19. November 2019 at 00:23:52
gorbygould :)
It certainly won't be, but it may be the last one with wings, at least for quite some time to come. The build I did after this, was a WWI tank. You don't have to rig those. ;)
19. November 2019 at 10:45:51
David Andrs hehe :) rigging those biplanes is a zen like experience - at least for me. If you ever get that craving again, I highly recommend trying something from WnW. They build beautifully. Just saying - no pressure :-D
19. November 2019 at 13:07:43
Ben M I love the fishy so much. Great build of a great subject! Don't forget, it's the GREAT war.

gorbygould Thanks very much Frank, your praise has made my day! :)
Up until this, tanks were of little interest to me, but I thoroughly enjoyed this build, probably more than any model I've ever done. It kept my brain working right to the end. I'm not saying that there will be no more aircraft from me, but there will certainly be more AFV in my near future.
3. May 2019 at 15:44:35
Jean-Michel Tilquin Wow! I missed this one, but the view from the trend is impressive, so real!
5. July 2019 at 17:19:46

Gordon Sørensen Great looking work area, gorby! If only mine was as neat and organized...
10. August 2019 at 09:45:48
gorbygould Thanks mates.
That's a good name for the room Urban, although I'm not sure I would be classed as entirely sane.
Gordon: I wish mine was that neat and organised as well! The photos are before any plastic was mangled. I've added another photo on the end to give a more accurate image of what's it's like in use.
10. August 2019 at 10:24:23
Spanjaard ventilation shaft will certainly be copied :)
10. August 2019 at 10:42:31
Urban Gardini Well, of course you're not able to classify as sane. You're after all a modeller...
10. August 2019 at 10:45:36
gorbygould :D (I assume that is supposed to represent laughing – it looks more like constipation to me).
Spanjaard: The ducting was one of my slightly better ideas. It doesn't get rid of the paint smells completely, but it's much better than it was. Incidentally the stuff I used is called 'Kair System 100 Rectangular'. I bought it from a well known South American river ;) and it was quite a reasonable price - £37 all in. The brackets are overpriced but I managed to do it with just one of them.
10. August 2019 at 11:10:13
Alec K Very nice job Gorby, and considering your self-reported aversion to labor a laudable effort indeed. I envy the natural light (my cave is in the basement, so no cigar). Nice work on the tool storage and compressor mounting as well
10. August 2019 at 12:41:10
gorbygould Thanks Alec. I had hoped those years of manual labour were behind me, it's not good for your health you know. The compressor mounting works well – the rubber shelf mounting and the rubber mat absorb quite a lot of the vibration, so it sounds much quieter.
10. August 2019 at 16:27:18
Spanjaard i actually have part of the stuff already... i had a couple of tubes leftover from some crazy idea during the renovation of our place... i just need the ends of it, and i have it almost done. well, i need to connect it to the window, but i have an idea about it :)

22. May 2019 at 18:06:31

Shawn: I didn't know that I could until I tried, give it a go, you might surprise yourself. At the very least you'll learn from your mistakes - as I did from my first dio.
