Dirk Fries Hm, didn't know the movie "The Monuments Men", yet - but I think I should watch it sometime.
16. February at 10:22:13
Brad Furminger You're too kind, Peter. But I'll take the compliments when I can.
16. February at 12:10:04
James C Pete. that's looking bloody awesome mate.
17. February at 00:16:21
Michael Hickey Can't believe I've missed this Peter, your doing a nice job, especially with the weathering.
17. February at 05:02:59
Timothy Heimer Not too bad for an Aussie! Looking good mate!
17. February at 05:56:45
Konrad Limmer Agree with Tim :0! Very nice Peter! Cheers
17. February at 06:34:12
Peter Hardy Prophetic words, made a monumental stuff up today! Going to console myself with a Jameson's or two and repair tomorrow.
17. February at 07:10:59
Konrad Limmer That's a really nice choice! I'll do the same with a Glenfarcles too. Maybe a little later up to now it's 7:30 in the morning :D!

Martin Oostrom@Peter Hardy
Why don’t you stop talking about building the frisbee and actually start building it ;)
Convert your man cave to a fridge and enjoy multiple benefits; your liquid masking stuff won’t get lumpy, your drinks stay cool and you can get building!
And as most women are advert to cold, the misses won’t damage anything whilst ‘cleaning’ 8)

Peter Hardy Mam won't set foot in the cave Martin. Carpet Monster scares the hell out of her. Or she is happy to be rid of me for a while? Still got 5 unfinished on the bench, I can't start a new one. It will be mostly painting and weathering anyway, and as it is 43C today it might be a few weeks away yet. Aircon in the cave is effective but it gets turned off and the temp soars!

I have been thinking about a hull colour, maybe a metallic light grey? The dark stripes I am not sure of. Do I try putting lights in it? Lots of ideas but as it is a rarity, I don't want to stuff up the opportunity! I was just on Skype with Timmy Heimer talking about putties. I use a Vallejo based on marble dust which works. Applies and sands well but doesn't flex at all. With the size of the Raider I am a little concerned with flexing and cracking. My current Enterprise build flexes so much when being sanded the putty cracks and breaks. Makes me laugh, NOT!

Peter Hardy Hey Jimbo! I got a PM from you but it said I didn't have the required security clearance to open it! Fair dinks! If you did write something, write it again!!
22. January at 06:41:24

29. January at 09:36:12
Christian W Very nice *thumbsup*
29. January at 10:56:05
Timothy Heimer You ain't right Peter, you ain't right! Rub it in! Glad you had a great time in the sun and enjoyed your B-day!
29. January at 14:09:03

Xerxes Hi Peter I am currently running short of time for modelling my Nashorn as I am skiing in the wonderful Austrian Alps at the moment. Currently having 1 to 2m of snow here ... But will give u all an update soon
26. January at 07:24:26
Mathew Nate Very good job!
26. January at 08:16:10
Timothy Heimer Too funny Xerxes! Enjoy the outdoor fun!
26. January at 13:27:29
Lode Schildermans Peter, it is a ugly beast, but so well done you only can love it. Nice job with the snow and particulary the figures. Great job
26. January at 21:10:50
Martin Oostrom Great weathering. I'll have to learn that one day. For now; inspirational
28. January at 23:32:37
Peter Hardy Thanks Lode and Martin! Like most of us armour modellers, I struggle with figures but you don't get any better sitting on the bench so I will continue.
All I know about snow is that it is white, cold and wet. I have heard stories that it's not good to eat yellow snow though.
29. January at 02:00:05
Michael Hickey Hey Peter, where you are you've got plenty of the opposite of snow, and it's red, hot & dry. ;)
29. January at 06:33:47
Peter Hardy And loving it!

Timothy Heimer So that's what you've been working on! Thought it was too hot to paint?
26. January at 14:13:59
Peter Hardy Well, it cooled off a bit. And, I got up early to do it. Waiting for a big shipment of Green paint from BNA Modelworld to arrive on Tuesday. Dreaming of that Cylon Raider last night!
26. January at 23:15:39
James C Oh yeah, I like that. Is it a deuce and a half? What kit mate?
26. January at 23:26:19
Peter Hardy Tamiya. Will try a small dio with an added figure.
26. January at 23:46:27
Peter Hardy Can't figure out how to load a kit against the project. Thick as two short planks!
26. January at 23:47:19
Timothy Heimer Don't feel bad...took me some time too!
27. January at 00:43:07
James C No worries mate. Assuming you have already added the Tamiya kit to your stash... just locate it under Your kits/stash list (if it isn't then add it etc) then click on the big + button. Click on projects, then select "Add to" and in your case you should be able to choose "A Chance Meeting" from the drop down list that appears. Or you can just make a new project and add it that way etc. :)

21. January at 21:30:49
Timothy Heimer Peter, I have to say that's a great piece of work, but as soon as you get your chalk skills dialed you can hit those stacks with it!
22. January at 00:08:04
Peter Hardy Already off loaded to a workmate who loved model ships. Made me cry every time I looked at it!

Can’t paint the USS Enterprise today, it’s too hot. The paint dries between the airbrush nozzle and the model. 41* C!
01. January at 08:41:46 Share
Timothy Heimer My heart bleeds for 41*C!!!! It's -4 *F here!!! Too cold to paint! LOL
05. January at 15:36:14
Peter Hardy Temp stayed there all week too, nights were down to a low of 28*C. -4 eh? Your not in Minnesota are you? Been in the news that it has been a wee bit chilly there.
05. January at 21:07:42
Timothy Heimer Nope , Chicago area

Frank Krüger Excellent! So many details !! The submarine is at this stage already a real eye catcher !!!
I wish you continued fun and success in this great project!
02. January at 07:47:07
Peter Hardy Thanks Frank! It's a bit of a challenge for my limited skills with photo etch but you don't improve your game sitting on the bench. Thanks for the encouragement!
02. January at 10:23:15
Spanjaard lots of work with that PE. you have enough PE to really master this skill. looking quite good IMHO
03. January at 01:46:24
Timothy Heimer Looking great Peter! Keep up the good work! Hey does building a Sub have it's ups and downs??
05. January at 15:37:41
Timothy Heimer Oh ..Thanks mate for the help on the Tiger questions I had, much appreciated!
05. January at 15:41:15
Peter Hardy You are a sad reflection on a lonely life Tim! I honestly don't know why I put up with you. That said however, building a sub has left me with a sinking feeling sometimes, but occasionally my wife insists I come up for air.
05. January at 21:03:00
Peter Hardy Did you work out what a Fiefel filter was?
05. January at 21:03:27
Martin Oostrom Don't get out of your depth with all that heavy metal. Looks fine Peter
05. January at 21:07:09
Peter Hardy It is a bit of an Enigma at the moment, perhaps I will take a deep breath and emerse myself this weekend.
05. January at 21:09:36
Timothy Heimer LOL Peter! Yes I found out all about that, and other Tiger ID's. Apparently I'm the last one to learn about 131 in the museum! I should be ashamed,being German and all! LOL If your wife is insisting you come up for air...Occasionally,... you must be doing something wrong. LOl Sorry you left that door open!

Martin Oostrom I categorically deny that I'm in denial, I even deny that I bought too many kits; 2 of the 15+ were gifts, so I can safely deny that I am in denial. I deny knowing the meaning of denial. I deny everything that's been said about me, this is all fake news! I even deny having an account for scalemates.
05. January at 08:15:50
Spanjaard ha ha ha ha ha :D :D yes, you never been in Utrecht (or around) :)
05. January at 08:55:09
playtime 222 Yeah yeah yeah :D I'm glad I didn't go to Utrecht this year! It was only a week after Telford so no cash :D I would have been itching the entire time walking around all those second hand kits on the tables...
05. January at 13:18:19
Spanjaard did you see SCM? not much second hand there, but amazing anyway. i will try to do both next year again. that is certainly a year resolution i intend to keep :)
05. January at 15:31:25
playtime 222 Which one is SCM?
05. January at 17:49:43
Martin Oostrom This one: Scale Model Challenge 2017 (21. and 22. October, RM Veldhoven NL)
05. January at 18:13:05
Spanjaard thanks Martin. specially since i typed SCM (usaly used for scalemates) instead of SMC (Scale Model Chalenge).
SMC is two days instead of just one, and with plenty of seminars to join. I did two last year, both fantastic. i will try to join some next year. the contest level was really high, amazing models. and I also meet some fantastic SCM people (Christian Bruer and Stefan Schacht).
in 2020 they will try to organize World Model Expo... that i will not miss!
05. January at 21:06:36
playtime 222 Interesting :D
