Starting off as a place to show my 2000AD-themed projects, its mutated into a diary of what i'm up to in the SF & Fantasy modelling hobby. And the odd rant, review and ramble.

Spielberg Tripod - what to do?
Am a massive, MASSIVE fan of War Of The Worlds so, really, i should've snapped up this kit long ago.
But was kinda skint when it was available for pre-order and certainly can't afford it now.
But i got a lot of dosh for my birthday, so thought i'd splash out.
Now its here though, what do i do with it?
That's an idea.
But a lighting kit is only available in the States - and i don't want to wait long for it.
But, looking at it, all i need is 3 LED's and a lighting strip, things readily available from Maplins for way under half the price.
But do i want to light it?
My other Tripod kits aren't lighted, so why should this one be?
But its got clear parts ready for lighting, so i should do so.
But how many of my lighted kits do i actually switch on?
What to do?
Also, do i make it as the Spielberg film version, or do i try and adapt it more into Wells' version?
My brain hurts.

Fan of decent film, especially 50's SF, Universal and Hammer horrors, the shorts of Laurel & Hardy. Love the British boys comics i grew up on, special effects in any form, history, mythology, fantasy and cheese.
