I didn't know where else to put this - I thought we had a modelling/crafts forum.

I started making this months ago...and it's sat in it's current state for about 4 months or more.

So I decided to give it a kick this weekend - see if I could get back into the swing of things




This was the engine that came with it


I decided to jazz it up a bit with some copper electrical wire from my electrician neighbour




A bit of paint



Then I added some oil wash to grub it up a bit

FINALLY...got some more progress on the Salamander

As soon as I did up the airbrush, I had a blockage...it's that kind of thing that gives me hives when I'm thinking about getting back to it. But...I soldiered on

Cheers. Bit of dirt and some different thickness electric wire. Gives it a bit more life.

There are so, soooo much better out there though. I've seen what people can do when they actually give it a proper go

So my daughter got me a Revell F14D for father's day.

So I decided to give this a push get it done and get it sold so I could start the F14.

I put some gloss on it so I could get weathering on and the decals. When that was done, I was going to put the guns in place...and dropped the model.

Rather than letting it hit the ground, I decided to close the gap between my body and desk...and caught the model between my body and desk, breaking the undercarriage off.

So this never got finished.
