Ferry Dierckxsens Ah that's great. Count me in following this build.

Felix Kronlage I have this in my stash as well, am actually thinking about making this my next project once the tug boat is finished.
06. March 2017 at 16:38:35
Martin Oostrom Okay, started this one. It seems I'm incapable of building two planes/cars/whatever in successive builds. I kinda need the change.
It goes together fairly easy. Tender was done in a couple of hours. How I'm going to paint it in two-tone livery? Not sure yet, lots of nooks and crannies.
The loc chassis was eay enough. The boiler is a two part piece. In my case with a small step: sanding. Some primer will reveal whether I left enough detail.

First ever train, by the way :D

I really need to find some way to decently paint the bogey and chassis. Lots of intersecting parts.

Spanjaard only one kit a barrel and two resin engines? were you ok? maybe was the lack of "external motivation" ;)
26. November at 23:57:56
Martin Oostrom Yup. My regular companion and instigator wasn't with me. Something about 'other business' in Germany ;)
27. November at 08:19:31
Peter Hardy I somehow doubt you need Spanjaard's assistance to buy a carfull of boxed sprues!
27. November at 08:26:04
Spanjaard Ha ha ha. Believe me, I would have loved to be there!
27. November at 08:29:32
Lode Schildermans Peter, doubts? I'm sure martin is a real modeler with more cars in his stash than a man can build in a lifetime. Oh yes, he has also planes and ships in his stah. I don't understand why he's complaining about a lack of space for his Rodney. With all his boxes, he can build a desk big enough for the Rodney ;)
27. November at 10:35:55
Martin Oostrom Now there's an idea Lode. But where to leave the new 'table'? Might not get the approval of mrs. Oostrom to put it in the living room :D
27. November at 23:09:02
Lode Schildermans Hey Martin, just helping you to find a solution ;). And want you to build that HMS Rodney. As for me, I found my scale. It's big. Just kidding. Rodney is fantastic to build. Let's hope the build will be fantastic
28. November at 00:06:29

Rick Corts I made some but when i got home i saw the AWFUL quality of my photo's so I'm a bit worried to share them because they really don't do the models justice...
26. November at 16:48:57
Ferry Dierckxsens Thanks for sharing Martin. There where so many models to see. I just had little time to take some pictures at the contest. As ESM team member and also taking my place at the IPMS south-west regional table not much time left to look around. I will share my pics with pleasure.

Martin Oostrom I wanted to depict an autumn wedding. The car is parked on some coloured grass with leaves from nearby trees falling on the car.
22. November at 21:26:49
Daniel Klink Great Result Martin
But where is the white Lace on the Antenna? ;)
22. November at 21:49:13
Martin Oostrom Daniel, get the **** outta here! Great comment though. Can I get away with "There wasn't an antenna included in the kit"?
22. November at 21:52:24
Tom Brillo! What a great gift. Bravo, Mr Martin! Leaves are such a nice touch.
22. November at 22:07:37
Daniel Klink All the other details are perfect Martin... I woul have been so happy about such a handmade present in that quality.
Nevertheless.. Tamiya becomes only 4/5 stars cause of the missing radio antenna.. :)
22. November at 22:24:56
Chris Greathouse beyond my skills, mind blown :D can you tell me the brand/color for the base... it's almost a plum color... very good
22. November at 22:39:35
Greg Baker Great job Martin, especially on the decals. Love it!
23. November at 00:07:40
Spanjaard really fantastic job Martin. a present to be proud of
if you want to do the antenna, a piece of steel wire can resolve that quickly... and some thin paper or silk could resolve the white lace ;)
but i like it as it is now :)
24. November at 01:06:40
Lode Schildermans Martin, it is a fantastic build. This is so highly detailed and painted excellently. Top job, mate
24. November at 11:58:45
Martin Oostrom I'll take 4/5 from you anyday Daniel! 8)
Chris, the purple is Alclad Candy Purple over a silver base.
Greg, decals wouldn't have been possible without you, many thanks. :D
Tom, Spanjaard & Lode, thank you for the generous compliments.

Martin Oostrom I bought those prismatic colours from Alclad. Did a testrun on some spoons. First sprayed alclads gloss primer, then (almost immediately) the paint. I think I like what I saw, but does anybody know where the white mist could be coming from (pic 14)??
10. November at 12:51:05
Peter Hardy Radioactive fallout?
10. November at 20:47:00
Spanjaard paint reaction with plastic due to very thin primer? (it is just a wild guess)
10. November at 23:18:10
Vinny Panda Looks to me like it's bloomed. Was it cold/damp when you sprayed?
18. November at 13:34:34
Spanjaard noooo pretty warm and dry around here in november, right Martin? :D
19. November at 01:20:33
Martin Oostrom Vinny might have a point. Wasn't it raining last weekend? I never remember something trivial like the weather ;)
19. November at 07:10:14
Peter Hardy Smells like a dairy farm in this thread.
19. November at 09:41:47
Wim van der Luijt judging by the smell of most nail polishes, I would say Ethyl Acetate is the thinner you want....my girlfriend's nail polishes all reek of the stuff....not sure what it will do to your plastic ...... might be so hot you wont even need primer....give it a try (most nail polish remover are acetone free these days btw)

15. November at 22:36:52 Share
Martin Oostrom While the idea of the just married cans for the Mini is percolating in the back of my mind, I started this one. The Mini is for my youngest brothers wife. This will be for my other brothers girlfriend. Can't have the illusion of preference?

The body needed quite some sanding with 600 grit. As I will paint it with Alclad candy, I will need a smooth surface. The paint lifted from the polished Mini. Could a primer layer of Mr Surfacer 1500 add some bite to the silver base AND get rid of the sanding traces?
Penny for your thoughts!
15. November at 22:43:37
Donald Dickson II Given your experience with the Mini, I would say give it a go. Try it on the hood separately. That way if it doesnt work out, it will be easier to strip off.
16. November at 01:49:05
Greg Baker I agree... because it's probably not the best idea to have to include a "Just Married" sign on the car for the girlfriend... :)
16. November at 02:05:06
Peter Hardy Geeze don't you just hate it when Don is right?
16. November at 03:20:23
Greg Baker No... it happens so infrequently... ;)
16. November at 03:50:42
Martin Oostrom Thanks Don. Instead of the hood, I'll abuse some plastic spoons. Much safer!
You're right Greg, the girlfriend isn't a fan of the institution called marriage. Don is on a being-right-spree this week. Just check Michaels ZM phantom thread ;)
16. November at 08:11:17
Peter Hardy Oh Gawd, twice in a week? The man is insufferable at the best of times. There will be no living with him now!
16. November at 08:45:40
Spanjaard i am of course in :)
16. November at 09:21:24
Donald Dickson II My left cheek. All of you, kiss it! LMAO ;)

Martin the only reason I didnt suggest spoons is that the plastic is different and may not have the same final result. Though I imagine it would be close.

Michael Phillips Haha it's all good. Based on my current build pace, I have projects planned, in order, until about 2035. Sadly, I am being completely serious there (I'm weird in that way)... LOL So two more builds before you get to this is no big deal. ;)
13. November at 21:39:44
Konrad Limmer ;) Thats true Micheal so true...
13. November at 21:42:25
Martin Oostrom I have projects planned in order as well. I just change it whenever it is time to start something new 8)
Moods change and I'm very flexible…. Perhaps the Mrs thinks otherwise :D
13. November at 22:38:29
Michael Phillips I do flex projects in and out sometimes as well, depending on my mood, buddy builds, group builds, or theme contests at my IPMS club. So that way I can keep if fresh, despite planning so far ahead lol.

Great minds think alike! :-D
