Here's a shot of the progress so far and a a rendering of where I want to try and get...
Working on those balast tanks and the back end at the minute, will post pics as the story develops.

Keep glued to this space.

Engine scratching

A quick update on the scratch built AG Chopper (working title)...
I've been building it an engine...

Cooling fans/air intake:

En the rest of it. Some parts came from a '33 Model T Ford ( I think) and various Ma.K. spare sprues. 
Also bought some condensers from the electronics store. It's not done yet.. it needs a ton more details and wires... but it's progress.

AG Vehicle cratch build

I've been away for a while, traveling Japan, so most of my Maschinen Krieger builds have been on pause... I have however since my return started a scratch build of my own design.

As you might or might not know, I'm make my money as an illustator. So I do a fair bit of drawing, and when I'm not being payed to do so my doodles are usually quite heavily inspired by science fiction related subject...
These are some examples of the kind of doodles I post on my instagram page

So this kinds of things were what I based my design on. It was going to be some kind of single-seat anti gravity motorbike type of thing...

I roughly sketched out the a couple of views of the things and chose the nicest one and scaled it up to about 1/20 (the scale of the figure I was going to use).

And based on the this I started building.

 I had already done some playing around with a pilot from a MK Falke kit. Adding some details and putting him in a seat. I decied this guy would be a handy figure to build my machine around.

For the vehicle the first (and so far the only) thing to build was the biggest part. The front part.

I built it up out of styrene plate and a plastic boerboel with a 60 mm diametre for the core and sides.

I wanted the top of to be a little more interesting than just flat. So I built some ribs so I could lay down some planks and sand them smooth.

 And the I build a little cockpit/windshield thingy on the back end and added the first detailing part, a cockpit from a helicopter kit.

That's it for now. I'm quite happy with it so far, but there's a long way to go yet. 
It's my first proper scratch build and it's a lot of fun, I hope I won't fuck it up...

UnderSea Pig Massive update...

Hey there,
It's been a while since my last confession... mainly because I haven't had a chance to do a lot building. Having said that however, the seepage has come quite a ways since the last post.

The general build was done a while back. Besides the props I added some wings, a cast steel texture, (using Mr.Surfacer 500), weld seams (using Aves) and some details here and there... also made the periscope a bit fancier.

Here are some progress shots:

Then I wanted to give him some kind of specialty tool... for his left arm. The laser wouldn't work under water, so I thought of some kind of torpedo rig, but ultimately settle on some kind of grinder tool with and extra grab claw.

This al had to be scratch built so that is what I did.

I used styrene and some donor parts... mainly styrene.
First up the claw...

Followed by the grinder tool:

Combining the lot...

Next up is covering the joints with epoxy putty.

Thanks for looking.

Hi there,
I've been taking a little break from my workbench after finishing my last two project kind of simulaniously... I have worked on little thing, but nothing serious.
Anyway I though it was time to something again so I started work on the Seapig from Wave.

Initially I thought it would be a nautical suit, as the name was kind of suggesting... but it was another space suit...
Well I decided to turn it into a nautical suit anyway.

I took the props from a kit of a 1:72 pilot boat and stuck them on this guy.. fit like a glove.

This is all I've got to show for so far, but you get the idea.
I'll also scratch it some fins, a periscope and maybe some other nautical accessoires...

Thanks for looking.
