Greg Baker Took some heavy duty sanding of one side of the epoxy coat to get the rocket as round and true as possible. It's not perfect, but for a paper model created out of plastic... who can complain. Sanding the epoxy coat got me close, but it might take a few sessions of Tamiya grey putty and sanding to fill in the imperfections to the point where they're not really noticeable.

Martin Oostrom You do know you're not from this planet, don't you?
20. November at 08:26:25
Spanjaard i will certainly not miss this one! you are building it fully from scratch... wow. also the towers?
20. November at 09:11:14
Greg Baker I'm not entirely sure what planet I am from though... ;)

It is 100% scratchbuilt, but I did cheat a bit. This is supposed to be a 1/72 scale XFLR-6, which is the test rocket (not the actual moon rocket). So the size is correct, but the shape is actually the Moon rocket because I was able to find those dimensions more easily. The test rocket is a little thinner, so I would have had to do all the calculations to cut it into 2D segments myself, and that sounded like just a bit too much work. :)

Once the straight XFLR fins are on, only the most nit picky fans will know the difference.

I have to admit, after I glued all the segments together... even though I tried to be as precise as possible, the rocket was a bit misshapen and I wasn't sure this was going to work. My wife even asked me why I was building a pickle... :). But after a few rounds of sanding, even if it's not laser perfect, I think it will look good enough,
20. November at 16:32:27
Spanjaard this is one of those occasions when a lathe would have been really handy.... so many tools so little space/money :D
20. November at 16:57:13
Uwe Kaeding Wow Greg - that's a lot of scratch building! Looks good though. I think I'll stick to the Blue Rider book's suggestion and use a V1 model kit as the base, but it will probably be too cylindrical (and need 3 instead of 4 fins). Looking forward to seeing how yours works out :)
21. November at 08:48:52
Greg Baker I thought long and hard about just using a V1 kit as the base, but the shape isn't quite bulbous enough so I figured I might end up doing much the same thing trying to modify the shape to fit. Now that I added the fins and the antenna I think it looks a little better. I was even able to scratch up some sort of 2-part rocket engine which will be painted separately and inserted in the end - both positionally and chronologically. ;)

At least my wife stopped calling it the pickle rocket... of course now she's calling it the cow rocket. ;D

Rv Great !
Just one comment: the wheels seems too big no ?
16. October at 19:26:57
Greg Baker Yes.. indeed they are. I've been struggling a bit with how to deal with that. The problem basically comes down to the fact that a) I'm trying to grind a Fiat 500 out of a Fiat 600 shell and b) the wheel wells aren't quite accurate. The wheels I've got look perfect, but are indeed too big. However, the wheel wells are also too big, so if I get smaller wheels, I have to deal with that problem next. I don't think there's much choice though, so I've started work on plan "b" - sanding down some smallish jeep wheels to remove the treads. However, to extend the wheel well rims... I dunno. Maybe a bit of epoxy putty? That seems the least painful way. Since the shell is resin, I can't just cement some styrene extensions on... and CA glue is less forgiving about trying to fiddle something into place. I'll try a couple of tests before I decide... any suggestions are welcome!
17. October at 02:19:06
Patrick Hagelstein Whow! That is cool! I like the push toy, ideal for 1/72 dioramas.
17. October at 03:21:16
Greg Baker Rv - I added a new pic of the beginning of plan "b"... smaller wheels!
17. October at 18:17:35
17. October at 19:52:56
Greg Baker Ok.. I admit it. I just couldn't get the Fiat 600 to look enough like the 500... so I'm declaring a do-over - this time with a real Fiat 500 shell. New master (courtesy of an ancient PEZ toy), new mold and a new resin cast victim. Luckily now I know what I'm doing... yeah right!
16. November at 05:52:08
JOHN THOMAS Greg, nice casting work. Keep up the good work.

Greg Baker There aren't a lot of options for vehicles from this Tintin album (since it's basically a "mystery in a locked room" story). However, I think the most iconic is the Peugeot 403 taxi that finally delivers the Milanese Nightengale away from Marlinspike Hall (aka Moulinsart). The base is the shell from an old Peugeot 403 plastic toy. Pretty rough, but some resin casts will give me a few swings at this one. There will be a roofrack added and the trunk will be opened, but I'm debating if I should try to open one (or more) of the doors as well. Any opinions?
16. November at 05:58:09
Spanjaard if you have several ones to try, is worth trying to open the doors, certainly.
16. November at 23:57:42
JOHN THOMAS Hey Greg, were do you fine these little cars? Great casting job also
17. November at 14:40:41
Greg Baker Thanks John. The little cars are just old PEZ-type plastic toys that I found on eBay. It takes a bit of checking to make sure they're actually 1/72 scale since a lot of them are actually 1/87 or 1/64 scale. Once I have the shell though, I do a resin cast and then scratch build the chassis and interior details.
18. November at 00:29:10
JOHN THOMAS Very nice

J W Got to be watching this beauty too!
26. August at 06:20:08
Greg Baker Yeah, well let's just hope I don't screw it up. This was in my "to tackle once I'm good enough" stash... and for some reason, I'm now cocky enough to believe I am... I'm just waiting to quickly and inevitably be proved wrong. :)

So I bought the Curtiss R3C-0 as well today..l just in case.

If it REALLY goes to hell, I'll just say I always wanted to build the Savioa S.21F instead... and that one will go in my "when I'm good enough" stash... ;)
26. August at 14:23:50
J W Just put on some of your favourite French/Italian crooning to listen to, sip on a glass of Chianti and let your undoubted mojo flow Greg ... but don't forget the odd photo for us mortals observe your progress and for Choppa suggest improvements !!!
27. August at 04:35:09
Choppa Nutta Popular plane to model recently I've noticed :)
27. August at 09:41:41
John Coverley Hi Greg. I built the 1/48 S21 and Curtiss a few years ago. I built the S21F a few months ago. (See my album)The build process for the 1/72 seems to be totally different from the 1/48. In 1/48th the cockpit is assembled and fitted to the floor. Then both items are fitted up into the 1 piece fuselage section. The hardest part was painting the figure of Fio.
11. November at 05:35:56
Greg Baker You're right, John. The build process is completely different. I've also notice that some of the paint callouts for the 1/72 are a bit different as well, so I've been following the 1/48 instructions as closely as possible instead. I had some arbitrary rule that I should only buy 1 version of the Savoia, so I chose the S.21... mainly 'cause I took one look at that Fio figure and panicked. :)

Anyway, I've got the fuselage all done up now and am i trying to figure out what's next. The wings, pontoons and most of the engine are assembled, but i'm debating the order of painting. Basically Red first? Or red after? There's a lot of red. ;)
13. November at 01:42:58
John Coverley In 1/48th, the wings,floats, and engine cowling fitted so well they could all be painted before assembly. I painted the red, white and green tricolori bits instead of using the decals.

Greg Baker All done. Might've gone a bit overboard with the dark wash. It doesn't look too bad in person, but those photos really enhance it. Partially a lighting issue, but still. Oh, well. Good enough is good enough!
06. November at 00:35:25
Martin Oostrom And it sure looks good
06. November at 08:10:41
Spanjaard beautiful!
06. November at 08:25:28
Greg Baker Just when I thought it was done... I decided that it looked "empty" on the Tintin shelf next to the armoured car, two jeeps (and a motorcycle). Everyone else had a diorama-ette base... and I just happened to have some extra angel clay...

It'll take a few days for the clary to dry out and shrink to final size. This time I plane to paint it and see how that works...
07. November at 23:49:51
Thomas Bischoff well done!
09. November at 16:23:25
Greg Baker Thanks Thomas! I had to make a last second repair on it, but you can't really notice. Some bright spark on a Tintin forum mentioned that the Alfa Romeo-like car in the comics only has one exhaust pipe. So I quickly tore one off, filled the holes and painted over it. D'oh!
09. November at 16:30:39
Thomas Bischoff ... you do go the extra mile! The car is really gorgeous
09. November at 16:31:56
Greg Baker Heh. Thanks! I have to admit though, having to tear it off was a lot easier than suddenly finding out at the end that I should've built two. In that case I would just leave the "good side" showing. ;)

Spanjaard you are not the only Tintin builder now... have a look at Uwe Kaeding

Martin Oostrom There are more people with this idea: SCM Search: tintin
01. November at 13:13:43
Greg Baker Now, admittedly, most of the projects on that list are mine (well, ideas stage anyway). Still, I've haunted lots of Uwe's and Mike Grants builds. Those guys know what they're doing!
01. November at 15:01:42
Greg Baker Alright... so this one is now done! I'm pretty happy since it was a 100% scratch build... even the wheels are modified resin casts off an Academy 1/72 MiG-21. My ONE regret is that I screwed up the rivets. When I first poked the holes, the little ridge of plastic that was pushed up created a very nice rivet effect. However, I accidentally poked too hard and pushed in the front plate in the process. So I had to fix that with some more putty and glued and in the process of sanding I managed to take off several of the rivet heads. So I decided to err on the side of uniformity and sanded all the rest down too (except the doors). Sigh... the holes just aren't the same... oh, well.
07. November at 23:56:23
Spanjaard i think you should be proud of it :)
08. November at 02:01:07
Thomas Bischoff I agree with Spanjaard - beautifully scratchbuilt!
09. November at 16:22:16
Miro Herold somewhat newly! Japs are there still too few.

07. November at 23:36:25 Share
Greg Baker After what I had to shell out for the Vintage Models resin kit of a Macchi M.52 in 1/72, I decided to try to make a resin cast copy and work off that instead... it's more work because a) I have no pressure chamber, so there are bubble issues and b) I'll have to scratch some of the finer parts myself... but there's always putty for a) and I probably would've done b) anyway, right? :)

I spared you all the pics of the messy incompetent mold-making process, so we're skipping right to the part where I actually have copies to work from.

20. October at 11:08:08
Greg Baker After much humming and hawing, I've decided I need to cheat a bit on the cockpit. I knew the nose was a bit sharper than it should be, but it would require major, life-threatening surgery to try and fix... so we'll just have to live with it as-is. But by consequence, the cockpit is really too narrow for a 1/72 3-man crew. I guess i'll Just have to use the 1/144 seats that came with the kit. So, in that case, the cockpit will rudimentary and I plan to try and tint the windows to obscure vision. I usually hate blacking out the windows, but oh well.... just nobody tell Choppa it's out of scale... ;)

Is there a section where we can report an affiliate vendor? I ordered several kits from https://modelhobbies.co.uk and did not receive them and had very little in the way of communication with the vendor. After a search, it seems there are a great many people who have experienced the same problem I have. Usually I'm a little more careful in making my online purchases, but as a scalemates affiliate, I felt a (false) sense of security...

Greg Baker I couldn't quite get the white numbers to work... since my homemade decals were a bust. But close enough I think.
30. October at 10:54:10
Spanjaard looks nice, pity the silvering of the numbers. if it were 1/72 you could create a mask and airbrush them, but in 1/72 they are probably to small. there is people making really good tiny masks using those cutting machines (https://home.cricut.com/ and others)
03. November at 15:07:40
JOHN THOMAS Greg, nice work on an older kit. You could try poking some very small holes were it has silvered and use some setting solution. I use Microscale Micro Set and Micro Sol. In the Red and Blue bottles. I have done this in the pass and it helps. There may be orther companies that make setting solution in your area.
03. November at 18:13:01
Spanjaard i did resolve once a really bad silvering case with lacker solvent, but i doubt i will date dare again. it was really close to a total disaster. the risk of completely ruining the model is too high.....

Spanjaard but the pink cover bottles are also a good idea.
06. December 2016 at 07:10:45
Murad ÖZER yeah cleaning the empty pots is always a good idea, better than dishing out 3usd (at least here) per clean jars anyway. cleaning em can get messy tho...
06. December 2016 at 07:36:01
Greg Baker I keep the Tamiya jars too... but I find it a lot easier to load mixed paint with a squeeze bottle.
06. December 2016 at 08:28:34
gorbygould In the UK, Tamiya 10ml paints cost £1.60, the empty bottles cost £1.10! So yes, I clean out the old bottles as Spanjaard does. I wonder – if I take my empty bottles along to the shop, would they fill it for 50p?
But it's an interesting idea Greg, about the medicine bottles. A quick look on Amazon and 'Squeezable plastic dropper bottles' look ideal. They can be bought in a range of sizes and are dirt cheap. They look perfect for mixed paint.

I was advised not to, but I put a 6mm stainless steal ball bearing into all my Tamiya jars and it's perfect for mixing up the paint, saves having to stir it.
06. December 2016 at 10:54:40
Spanjaard I got a bah of steel balls that I got on eBay for next to nothing. Each of my tamiya ones have one inside. Alclad use to include them, last ones did not, so I added them myself :-p

JOHN THOMAS Greg, nice build. I wish the one I built some years ago turned out as nice.

Martin Oostrom To say you did a good job would be an understatement.
30. October at 14:20:24
Greg Baker Thanks guys! John, that's quite a compliment considering the high quality of your builds. I'm guessing "some years ago" would have to be over 30... ;)

JOHN THOMAS Greg, yes. I built several F4F's in the mid to late 1990's in a collection of Grumman Aircraft I did for a contest. I built F4Fs, F6Fs, F7Fs and F8Fs all at 1/72 scale. The contest was at the National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola Florida. A great place. I folded the wings one of each plane and posed some in flight. I even won a award or two. All I have now are some poor snap shots of the collection. I would have to scan them to post them. I also have some other collection I did for the same contest in pass years. Give me a few days and may be I will get them up on the site

Antonio De Girolamo That's simply clever! Fantastic build Greg!

Greg Baker Heh! Thanks Antonio. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out actually. The only thing I'd have done different would have been to trim back the length of the fuselage. It's just a tiny bit too long. Oh, well...

JOHN THOMAS Very cool
23. August at 14:02:39
Greg Baker Thanks John! That's means a lot coming from a scratch builder like you!
23. August at 18:15:03
JOHN THOMAS Greg, your scratch building skills have serviced you well. I don't know much about your little Ghibli projects but from what I have seen they are really fantastic. Looking forward to future projects

Choppa Nutta The Flapter body would be good as a quad copter you ride like a chariot
you could even make the blade protectors look like insect wings :)
