That's a bit of an optical illusion of the camera. The wall is plumb and level. ;)

It's an R/C bird I've seen a few built. Google shows you can still buy it today along with new parts such as engine cowl and spinner

Greg, when is your mancave done. It is becoming time too see more cartoon builds in which you excell

UK Wiring all depends on the floor construction. If floors are old school with joists and boards, Socket wiring is run under the floor, popping straight up to the sockets from below, with Lighting circuits run above, dropping straight down to switches & wall fixtures, If walls are plastered, original lighting wiring it run in steel conduit buried in the wall, later additions are generally just buried in the plaster, after sealing the cable with moisture proof coating (i just spray gloss paint on them). In plaster walls, similar rules apply, but long vertical runs should be attached to something solid.

P.S. Whether or not that complies with Nth edition regs is not the point, who can tell once it's closed up, we don't need to get permits for that stuff.

Thanks for the info Chaz. Only did basic NVQ and then ended up changing careers due to health.

Me too! I've got plans for Johnny "The Navajo Ace" Cloud's P-51, and the Hans "Enemy Ace" von Hammer's Fokker Dr. I... for starters. ;)

Greg...you have to be the only modeler concerned with the correct "haunting" mechanism for his tank...
15. October, 04:55
Greg Baker
Hey... if you don't get the ghost right, it's just not a haunted tank... ;)

Interesting subject. I'm looking forward to see this diorama coming to live

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
Greg Baker
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 :)

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.
