I could be working on models, but....

The latest last minute project for the wife's kindergarten class in progress.  Nothing quite like getting a "Hey can you do..." in the late afternoon the day before you need it.


Also tearing apart/reorganizing the art/hobby room. Its 1am right now and still have a way to go on the dragon, but the Ork pilot parts ARE on my desk. Depending on how long it takes me to ransack the hobby room and catch a nap or two I should have at least the first cockpit pretty well built by Wednesday, so keep an eye open for that update. Until then.... I have to get back to work. Thank got for Pandora on my laptop.

Cheers Ya'll!

Update: The finished product. Drugs are bad, M'kay?

Out with the old kit, in with the new.

We survived the Hurricane with a little screen damage on the back deck, otherwise those of us inland were very,very lucky.

Now that that's all over its back to sneaking in some hobby time.  I spent a few hours on the hellcat. When I was done, I gauged the frustration and lack of progress against the time I spent and decided that old model was just too damned brittle to keep fooling with. But, while that particular model kit didn't cooperate much due to advanced age, I have a few more that the Orks will be happy to loot and fly!


 Greggles will be pleased to see the one in the lower right corner. And there is also this monster, which I'm sure I can make some sort of Mek plane out of.


Thank God I didn't get to go to the local IPMS show this last month or I'd probably have half a dozen more and an angry wife.  I DO have two dakka jet kits on top of this mess.  So, the end result will be a bit of an air armada.

I also picked up Killteam, the Genestealer Cult codex (which I absolutely love) and a Goliath truck.

On top of all this fun, I have had the chance to work on some artwork and will hopefully have a 40k comic up within the week.  First modelling priority will be Ork pilots and cockpits. The scale challenge (which I figured out by shattering that old Hellcat kit) is how the cockpit will work. SO, I've decided to build the basic cockpit "tub" and pilots first. While the Me110 will be a special one. I'll do the 3 single seaters first, so that will be the next post. A bit of scratch building 101 and making a standing ork sit.

Cheers Ya'll!

Major Nelson is in danger!


I'm 60 or so miles in land, but Matthew is on his way to visit Cocoa Beach.  That little crappy house that Major Nelson has in trouble. Luckily, he has a genie.....


Catch ya on the other side ya'll!

A pause... for craziness.



Sorry gang,my hobby time has been minimal. I've got a new job and now we are preparing for the arrival of a Hurricane tomorrow.  I'll get back to hobby stuff after the storm.... or maybe during it if I don't lose power.

OH!  Aaaaaaand I bought the Kill Team box.   Expect some kill teams in the future, after I get teh orky air force started.

Cheers Ya'll!
