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.

the Mark MK6
I'm VERY indebetted to top bloke Mark McGee for very kindly suppling me with a whole boxfull of sprues to replenish my Bits Box:
There's tons of interesting shapes and things, including this ball thing, which screams Star Wars Probe Droid to me, and am sure i will do:
But it was finding this aircraft body and wing that i was drawn to:
That lovely curved tail really looks like the prow of a ship to me, and that wing, if upright, would make for a heck of a sail sort of shape:
And the whole thing would be done in a Ma.K/Dust sort of style, and be called the Mark MK6 as a nod to its supplier.
Okay, lets go then.
As i was cleaning up the parts, it came to me that it would be a nice challenge to try and do the whole thing using parts that Mark suppied, so that's what i'm doing.
Here you can see i've got the wing upright. Sandwiched between that and the body is that grey part, which i've put there as it comes with a couple of stubby wings, which i'll be putting on either side:
Born '62, growing old but not up. Ex-Projectionist.
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.
