Thread: Magnifying aids

Hi Simon.

I use an optivisor similar to SimonT

bought it from a lapidary distributer, the come with 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3.5 magnification but make sure you get glass lenses

this is the 2x lens, but at 72 I quite often use the 2.5

the small light is from one of the dollar stores and can be snapped on to either side, uses 1 AA rechargeable battery and will last a couple of hours continuous.

your probably right, the caption for this photo says Giblet off the back of Queen Anne's Revenge

in others a skeleton can be seen lashed to it.

admittedly this is from a movie, but I would say the depiction is probably fairly accurate.wink 2

In any case it was a fun build (or should I say twisted together)laugh

Looks like an interesting build with lots of scope for additional detail in the diorama.

have you thought of scratch building the house in the background.

you would only need the front wall, bit of the roof and side wall.

John race is scratching a building at the moment and he has a lot of good ideas going on

may be of interest.

As for the missing bits they may have been removed to repair another one.

I'd have thought the Germans would have destroyed it to stop it being used against them.

Good morning Jim.

This sounds like a very impressive build and an emotional one for you.

that PE looks very detailed and at that scale would be a handful for me.

enjoy the time spent on it .

Hi John

I'm not sure as can be seen in the photo 5 up from the bottom the smaller ones are lanterns, maybe they had a fire burning in it, seems to small to act as a brig.

will see if I can find out, don't hold your breath though.

Bound to be somebody on this site who knows

Marcello Hi

The digital camo should look good I should imagine it will be quite fiddly.

I received this as a gift for Christmas.

It is the Queen Anne's Revenge, Blackbeard's Ship.

Kit by Iconx 3D metal kit

Originally the Concord a 200 ton frigate, built in England in 1710.

Captured by the French renamed the La Concorde de Nantes, and modified to carry more cargo, including slaves.

she was captured by the pirate Captain Benjamin Hornigold.

He in turn apparently turned it over to Edward Teach

(later known as Blackbeard), and made him the captain.

"Info from Wikipedia"

It took about 6 hours to assemble everything fitted and the laser cutting is incredible.

Anyway a bit of a diversion and a pleasure to build.

2 sheets of bits.

Thread: Tamiya 1/35th Steyr completed

Looks very nice, and with the wheels It's amazing what you don't notice until you see the model in a photo.

And a small amount of greenery always gives life to a scene.

I also really like the shape of the base, I usually make mine rectangular, (maybe not in the future.)indecision

Congratulations on a great build, ..... now on to the next project!

Watching with interest David, and look forward to seeing how it all progresses.

Interesting comment on the sandbag layout I didn't realize that some of the bags are laid end on so to speak.

There certainly are a lot of small bits, do you paint them before fitting or after?

It coming on a treat.

Paul. Thank you again, now I will have to find a new project to keep me busy.face 22

Joe. Thank you,

Yes happy with it but you can’t see much of it in the modelfrown

SprueOne. Thank you and no problem.yes

Lee. Thank you.

Yes I was wondering if instead of just wetting the surface a little bit of PVA mixed in the water would have the same effect

I will give it a try.idea

John. It certainly has been warm beerbeer

Not sure what to have a go at next, and haven’t bought a new air brush and compressor yet.


And thanks to all for the great encouragement during the build.

Morning John.

great way to do the plaster.

the PVA seems to make it easier to handle without breaking.

I couldn't help but wonder if the piece you have in your hand in the last photo.

May be a good way to make very muddy roads with the tracks quite defined but smooth edges

Hi Colin.

it's about 2 years since I built something that doesn't run around on the ground, maybe it's about time again

This is looking good. molding seems very well detailed.
