Like me, you are doing the figures first . These Zvezda figures really are impressive. Mine wouldn't click together either You have scratched a strap - well done. I am not sure I'm up to that but I may have a go.

Sorry to hear about your eyes but it’s good to take some rest.
Just take your time, have fun and you’ll end up with some great(and odd) models.
Allen, I’m in the same league of crazy.
Built the Warp models BORG Cube from Star Trek First Contact some years ago.
One kilo of resin(give or take), 8 pieces:
For size, the F84 on top is 1/48.
Too bad the insert and sphere fell in during last year’s cleaning……

Good evening fellow Milmoders . Well apart from thanking the following.................................................................
Allen ......Ha you noticed at last I was mad you can come back in , but shake the snow off .
Paul........ Thank you , we all seem to like these figures .
Simon ..... Glad you checking in on me , I had a think about doing a cut away , but your quite right its just to small , so shall stick to plan A . Set into the ground , with the rear hatch open and the crew talking to the spotters .
Shan't do any more small scale , I have enjoyed what Ive done and are doing , but its just not worth the strain.
Jim ....... I'am glad that it wasn't just me with the click not working then . The strap was easy , you can't see the blob of glue under the arm
Fernando.......... Hi , nice of you to stop by . I like something a little odd , just has something about it .Would make a nice cave to build in , apart from the fumes, although you would have the peddle extraction system , so that would keep you fit at the same time .Some nice models there , I will have to check out the Borg Cube on the net. .
there is nothing to report , may have a little play at the week end . Thanks for stopping by .

Evenin` Mr.R ,
Finally got a few hours benchtime after many days slaving over my end of year books,so i`m having a right royal catch up around the parish!!
All looking pretty nice so far there,and,as the guys have said,considering the size,some lovely details-HOWEVER,don`t you dare go too far and bugger up that eyesight again.............,no matter how much you`re tempted ,
The figures look insane for the scale too,very "Wantable"!!!
Take it easy mate,and as Simon T said...... why not try something a little larger?!!
Andy,and of course......Mort

Now for a history lesson ,
In Italy the Germans have been using a mobile steel pillbox, nicknamed the "Armored Crab," which made its first appearance on the Russian front in 1943. These prefabricated bunkers, without rotation, had an armored casting carapace armed with a machine gun.
These pills boxes were manufactured by various companies in subassemblies contracts being transported to local use by train, trucks or tractors. They were very simple but extremely effective equipment.

This pillbox was mounted in an inverted position on wagon-like wheels, and usually is hauled by tractor or lorry to a designated site, where it is overturned into a prepared cavity.:
After this, the exposed upper half of the pillbox (which is non-rotating) is camouflaged with rocks, earth, or local vegetation.
