Thanks folks,

This lot is killing me, but can see a very tiny light.

But in other wonderful news check out this Article by our own inmygravenimage, so chuffed to get a mention.

Update soon I promise.


Thanks for the mention yourself old son!

Well...been bit busy and life getting in the way and health messing me about, and struggling to think what I could reasonably post....

OK thanks Vik and Graven, much appreciated.

Going to do a little bit on working with styrene here, mainly how I manipulate the material into irregular shapes.

I was making a batch of old fashioned fire trucks. And so I needed to run off multiples of everything, many complex parts were molded and cast in resin, but some parts are just easier and more accurate to be made in sheet material.

The material I used for some of this was a bulkier styrene sheet at 3mm thickness.

So here are the bulkheads.

You can see I made a wedged shape for the floor and a sheet for the bulkhead itself, on the truck it has a curve to the top.

To achieve the curve I first made a former. (a piece of material that has the shape you need to form.) This has to be made taking into account your material thickness. in this case I used MDF.

The material is clamped in place.

Then we apply heat, for maost of this build I used a heat gun, but I also use a blowtorch (small kitchen variety) a lighter, and a candle. Dependant on the part needed.

These things get very hot, but for these parts you only require approx. 15 seconds of heat to be able to start manipulating.

Then firmly rolling around the bend and then holding in place for it to cool, maybe a minute.


Thinking ahead and doing things in batches is key in a project such as this. These took about 15 minutes to produce the 10 parts I needed. If I was setting up for each one separately it would take much more time.


Here is leaf spring production, needed 40 for this. These I can make easily down to 28mm scale now I have a bit of a system going. The former would need to be made but that does not take long. These ones are 100mm long. And yes when they are all one the vehicle they work just like the real thing.


Another part I needed was a "U" channel, this is the former for it.


And here you can see them, with the front wings and the former for them above.


The heat gun is a cheap £20 DIY store special. The only special equipement I used here are probably the brass clamps. They are not necessary, as you could use any clamp that would fit. But these I love, they are simply brilliant. I got mine Here

And here are a couple pics of the finished work.








Thank you for looking, normal service will resume very shortly after I clear up a bit.

You Sir are a mad genius . Amazing work with these pieces, you have truly taken the Ford mass production line theory to a new level.

Hopefully you get a fireman’s hat out this at the very Least.

Please tell me you made a few extra to loot for your Orks.

Aberdeen City Fire Brigade... but not this Aberdeen, home to the US Army proving ground and formerly the home of the US Ordnance Museum.. which had some cool stuff.

Fire trucks are indeed magnificent, as 'Graven so eloquently put it. That line up is all kinds of serious fethin' cool. Makes my day to see something like that.

Cam, you do your best work when you are not doing 40k stuff. My humble opinion.

The brass clamps, yeah. I saw Dave had some and I had to get me some too. They are darned useful to have, and they just look classy, eh?

Creating one firetruck was a work of art; building a fleet- all to the same high standard- approaches witchcraft. Transferring the techniques that worked for one and adapting them to work for many is a problem that industry tries to solve all the time, and you've cracked the code.

They look terrific; adding superlatives simply won't help.

Well done.

It has been quite a while that you treated us with one of your excellent tutorials! you´ve been the cause...again... for me recently to get me a heat gun myself...which i haven´t used at all yet...

question tho...my heat gun came with two or three different muzzles...(i fully well know that your custom made former is the one you needed...so there is that...) i wonder if you have some of these on your own or that you had to make a former on your own because your gun came without any ...?


also...the trucks all together shiny and painted... that is a sight all on it´s own for sure!!! i hope you get handsomely paid for these...and that you feel proud about your work!!!! artisan is a term you can fully well call yourself with all due honour attached to that name!

It's okay to type in gak, Cam. The forum will *sanitize* it for you. Take the time, and help, you need, and when you're ready, give life a few kicks in return. Turn about is fair play after all. I suggest giving life a swift kick to the danglies, all things considered. Yes, it's fighting dirty, but when has life ever not fought dirty?

Rest, recuperate, and enjoy the well deserved accolades and satisfaction from completing the fire engines. Amazing stuff. Hell, that was well nigh a year's worth of work for almost anyone else, and you completed in it in how long?

Be well, my friend.

Thank you all for your wonderful thoughts.

Well folks, I am still buggered at the mo, internet is very limited, and a few other issues have cropped up, I have been working on a few projects but can't upload pics at mo.

Spoilered, only for the brave. Just want to make it a little clearer for some of my best friends here abouts.
Spoiler:

Finances have meant that we have lost internet for a while, hope to sort it later this week but I am really struggling with out it.
Life is very difficult. Depression kicking the living gak out of me. Can't go a week without wishing I was dead.
Brother has lost both legs to diabetes now, that was tough going, he managed to get one of these necrotic bugs that eat your flesh in his remaining leg, so they had to remove it in an emergency op, was touch and go for a bit. Couple long nights for that one.
My step dad, whom I love and cherish very much, has had a scare, he is in his 90's and they are working on the assumption that he is riddled with cancer, still awaiting tests. This one is hard as I am not able to be there, no way I can manage it. Not that I would be any good.

For about 6 months now, if I over do it, I have been having funny turns, you know chest pain, weak as a kitten, can't breath etc. 3 weeks ago I had one of these turns, and ended up a dribbling gakker for half an hour, and my beloved wife rang for an ambulance and I was blue lighted 50 miles into hospital with what appeared to be a heart attack, all the signs where there. Full on. But tests showed nothing going on! Weird! Had another one a few days ago. Hospital again. All the tests again show nothing wrong, in fact my heart and arteries are in great shape, strong as an ox and all clear. So it appears I am now having panic attacks, and my system goes full on shut down on me. The latest one a few days ago was really scary as I was driving at the time with my boys in the car. Now scared to drive. Can't concentrate, feel pretty bloody pathetic as there is really bugger all wrong with me. I really could have done with the heart being the real deal and just ending it all, but now I feel sad and pathetic and cheated.

So yeah life is gak. Without my modelling and the wonderful connection I have on here with you guys my life is really, really crap.

Sorry if this upsets anyone, really not my intent, I wanted to explain to everyone why I have gone silent. Please forgive me.


Back soon I hope, trying and thank you all again for your thoughts, you really have no idea how much they mean to me.

Keep looking after yourself. Try to talk to those you love but if you can't, then my recommendation is at least talk to a stranger. I spoke to the Samaritans a few times about 6 or 7 years ago and found it really helped. You can talk to them on the phone or in person, and you don't have to say anything you don't want to. And you don't have to be on the very edge, or anything. You can basically talk to them any time you think you really, really need it. I wasn't suicidal each time I spoke to them, but I was not always that far from it. It gave me the extra strength I needed to keep pushing through the gak each time.

It is one option, anyway.

Am I back? Maybe. It's still tough going.

I will say sorry in advance here, but more hobby space shots. Bit of a shift around, finally looking like I might be able to play. Still some sorting to do but here you go.








And first on the table is a commission to build a Star Wars, Sand crawler.
Hope to be back soon.

Hmm, that's sort of tongue in cheek, but only sort of, because I suspect that you do have a few tricks for them. You have continuously surprised and impressed me with your ingenuity, so I am always prepared to be surprised and impressed when I look in on your blog. I am never disappointed.

Sand Crawler sounds like an excellent project. Classic Star Wars.

If you’ve been watching The Mandalorian on Disney+ you’ll get plenty of shots with it in action.

Thanks folks.

@ Red, funny enough I do heat water, but more for things like GS work or mixing stuff. And the oven is very useful. Was actually originally bought with heat treatment of metal in mind.

@ Theo, not sure on your taste in music, but CD's would be a good source though I would just use them as is. I melt old sprue and milk bottles. Enough cooking and a little pressure and you get nice sheet material. Experimenting with"forming" soon.

Well here is a bit of an update. Did a drawing to get some ideas.


Then decided I needed to make a mock up.




Main reason was to work out width. Thoughts appreciated.

A few things highlighted. And easy enough to sort on the real one soon. Also decided to make the mock up a 40K model once I am done with it. Thinking a super-mega-battle fortress full of goblins, probably converted night gobbos.

Anyway, IRL is still very much gak. Think it is starting to pass, only for another slap in the face, and feet swept away. Enough of that crap though, come here to escape.

Thank you all for stopping by, and your comments mean so much to me.

Thank you all. Truly grateful for your thoughts.

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. I will no doubt be here. Thoughts appreciated.

Post by: Camkierhi


Thank you all for the thoughts, and I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

Well I have been fairly steady over Christmas, in modelling terms. Had pretty much a day off, then back at it a bit and then couple days ago back to normal. (in myself, this is a tough time of year for most, and I try very hard to be positive through it, but that is exhausting in itself.)

So I did get some nice bits for gifts, haven't taken a pic yet, will soon. And I have been plodding away at the Sandcrawler.

So pic dump....


Yes I drybrushed again and will be bringing it back up to that lovely colour you all liked, but this is an attempt to unify the paint.



This side is magnetised so you can see the interior, which I have started in on.












As you can see fair bit of a start on the interior. This is a very difficult area as there is very little in the way of layout or pictures to reference for the interior. I am winging it the only way I know how, basically think about it logically and work out what you have to do in what amount of space and go from there. I have the main conveyor started, happy with the "belt" part but a lot to work out as to actual length and what it does, and for that matter mounting structure for it. Generally some parts are fixed and I am only modelling what you will actually be able to see. Others are "working" parts. The conveyor will static probably, though sat here already have a couple ideas of how to make it work!!! Last shot there is the underside, just starting. Not going to be working on it properly until the upper is a lot further along. But needed the basics in to line up the "vacuum" on the side which I hope to have as extendable. Tons of work still to do and most of this is well beyond the brief, typical of me. Mate did not ask for a detailed interior, but he will get one now.

OK as always your thoughts and critique are most welcome, I am actually looking for as much advice as i can get. A lot of this is artistic license, which I would prefer to be accurate. Hope to get another update later today as I have a few more details which are not pictured here yet, and will sort a prezzy pic. Thanks for looking in.

There might not be much to go on, but since they probably have more than one I figure each dune crawler would be slightly different, so go with what feels right. Exterior detailing is excellent.


Camkierhi's other stuff blog. Currently in a galaxy far far away! @ 2019/12/30 20:55:32


Post by: Red Harvest


Yeah, I would expect a great deal of variation on the interiors of something that big, and essentially cobbled together from whatever could be scavenged.

Everything looks top notch.

For interior reference, how about the Lego Star wars trilogy? They had internal sandcrawler levels.

Also, damn cool

Well I better do an update! Been plodding along with the Sandcrawler. Just a couple bits done.

Better have a quick look where I was.....

Ok, so buggered up here a bit. Did a heap of work on the interior and not only will it hardly ever be seen I also forgot to take pictures and it is nearly impossible to get a picture now. Oh well.

Here are some pictures.











So now some pictures, some with flash so colours look off.









And so how she sits...

I feel the need to swallow a dictionary because I don’t have enough words to describe how awesome this is coming along.

The conveyor may not move but the thermal power plant is more than compensating for the energy consumption and is keeping the air conditioner running at peak performance .

Thanks folks. Very much appreciated.

@ Josh, yes but figured it would not really be beneficial. Think I will do it for the track units though. Maybe not motorised but moving, not sure yet, already going a bit far for this, but hey that's how we roll right!

So... made a few minor mods to the plan.

Roof...


And a sliding door on the main body roof....



To be able to see the detailing...


And some lights to better see with...






C&C welcome and indeed encouraged. Thank you so much for your words, and even just looking in.

P.S. Following Gravens advise, I do post a lot of this to FB and have started posting to Instagram

Sliding door is epic. Well done on joining insta, it's a fantastic showcase for your talent. Whilst I'm not quite au fait with it, it IS - like it or loathe it - a great way to be seen. Last year, I got my access to MCM ComicCon largely off the back of my insta and that was when I wasn't really actively trying to use it.

Post by: Camkierhi


Thank you folks. Most appreciated.

Well will do a little irl update at the end. On to the Sandcrawler. Putting a face to the beast.


That is a heck of a silhouette.

And working on internal details. Mainly layout.



And a bit of paint being splashed about.



Actually a little further on but no pics. Don't really want to bore you with small progress.
Spoiler:
Life. Well such as it is. It is hard to find words. I don't want to make a thing of it and I know that many of you have been truly amazing. And I will never forget how you have helped me.
Every day I sit down at my work bench and get inspired to do a little more. Your words help with this. I still have to work very hard to get past the darkness. Wishing I was gone, wishing I had never got up. Every day I sit up in bed and the pain hits like a hammer, I take copious amounts of pain relief to no avail. A steady decline throughout the day to the point of not being able to find any peace. Not able to get to sleep until truly exhausted.
Every day I sit down to model and wish I could believe that I could make something out of this. Can't seem to see anything else to do. Afraid to try and have a go because I know I will fail. I always fail. Will be written on my grave, "Brilliant but failed."
I struggle lately to come here. Easier to fire away something quick on FB. Kicking myself for not making time to read your blogs, I want to, just don't know what to do.
I can honestly say I would never wish this gak on anyone. Truly gak.

So thanks for looking in. And please forgive me. I will try harder.

Following you on Facebook as well. I always appreciate your visits and your work. I think the only thing you fail at is seeing how appreciated you are by all of us. We aspire to have a tenth of your talent, failing that we just are grateful for your presence here when you can manage it. I have no idea how bad the pain is, how you continue to push through it and knock out these amazing kits is beyond my understanding. You are truly an amazing person with how creative and skilled you are and I know I’m better off having seen your talents in action here.

I remember when my father was dying and everything else around me was falling apart one of the pastors told me that God gives us only what we can handle. I really wanted to punch him (the pastor...and sometimes God too) in the face and say I can’t handle any more. It took time, lots more than I wanted to invest in it, but things have started to look up. Keep pushing that boulder up the hill, eventually you get to the top. Then you get to roll it down the other side and enjoy the show .

The bolded part. QFT. Seeing Cam's work posted always brightens my day.

Sandcrawler is amazing work so far. Moi, not surprised.

And, spoilered, because that's how we roll here.
Spoiler:
You mention the pain. Is that the hip injury? Can you get some physical therapy for it? I had PT for my back problem, and believe me, it was such a relief, but it takes work. Worth every second. Have you tried a TENS device? A good one. It is a massive help too. I have found that the more time I spend outdoors, the better my mood/spirits. Maybe you and the Mrs could try daily walks or something?

Your work is truly inspiring. Even though I don't post here very often, I keep visiting regurarly. I'm amazed every time. Just magnificent stuff.

It's good to have a hobby you love. It helps keeping all the bad thoughts and things away. A year and a half ago when my father suddenly passed away in a relative young age, I was stunned. To that point, life had not treated me all too well in general, and that was the last straw. I felt like nothing mattered anymore. This hobby, painting and modelling, kept me sane. It helped me to keep going. Hopefully it does the same for you. Keep focusing on the things you love and take it one step at a time.

Looking forward for more of your work!

Nice sandcrawler. I really dig the technical drawings you've made. Sings to my industrial designer's heart. I often do similar, but as I mostly make Ork stuff, it tends to look a little less technical and a bit more slapdash. Ah, well.

I'm glad you're taking time for yourself. As others have said, personal time is important and healthy.

In an attempt to get back at this, many more thin coats have been applied. Hope this is getting close to the right colouration.

There will be more done on the painting, but for now it has done enough to peek my interest.




Peculiar how the two pics vary, in to seems much the same all the way round.

quoting this post for the page flip...

looks amazing!
you´ve reached a new peak with this amount of patience in such a build... i still avoid anything star wars due to the iconic randomness of plate- arangement... i tend to build with a certain kind of order...and thus i would stress myself immensely in this kind of process... my hat´s off to you good sir!!

Thank you folks. Love the comments.

Well, here I am on the raggedy edge....

Actually got hold of tools yesterday and did something.










So tracks are started, working elsewhere again today, trying desperately to keep life on the rails. More soon I hope.

Thoughts and critique most welcome as always.

The detail is incredible in its complexity and utterly believable in its function- no suspension of disbelief required. It gets repetitious, but is nevertheless entirely accurate and appropriate, to say that you've upped your own standards Cam, AGAIN. Rock on!

The depth of detail on the track unit is remarkable--I assume you have molds of all the parts? I can't imagine you'd want to make all those gears from scratch.

And the fantastic journey continues.

For a moment, I thought that you were setting up those tracks to take a small motor. A RC sandcrawler.

Because you are one of the few who could pull it off. The whole mad skillz thing.

Thank you all, you are far too kind.

On a side note, does anyone have a picture of the rear end of a mark 1 landraider. For some reason no one has ever taken a picture of it.

Well Cam, I have not seen the back end of one of those in over 20 years, when I scratch built one using a real model as a template. However, this guy's thread here on dakka has a rear view, and I can attest that it is pretty much as I remember it. https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/776637.page#10479186 He's added tail pipes that are not 'original' I 'bumped" his thread too. A good necro, this time

Ah, a papercraft version here https://vk.com/photo-28784290_271251768 and/or here http://vk.com/doc-28784290_26359803?hash=5d26dbeb4cd6112db1

Thank you folks.

@ Syro, Bud we will have to rectify that.
@ Red, that was brilliant thanks.
@ Gits, If you get a chance please throw me some, either post herre or PM me.
@ Brianj, bud I sincerely hope you are feeling better, I am in a bit of a state these days, so I can understand at least a little. Best wishes sir.


Well, what have I been up to......bugger all. Been working on cars IRL and a few odd jobs. Most of the time is spent procrastinating and then beating myself up for wasting the time away. But....

Entered a sculpting comp. Daft bit of fun (see I am trying!) you had to create a character in MSNgen, a gloriously silly little app online Here
Mine ended up a Hunchback, Golem, Paladin, Meso American, Female.

So in between times and work on the sandcrawler I have been sculpting away. Here are the pics...
Armature.

First batch of Super Sculpey and GSM (greenstuff and miliput mixed together) Over the armature, the sculpey was put over a tinfoil bulk on the wire armature and baked, then once I was happy eough with shape added GSM.






And there it sat until yesterday when I was reminded that the comp ends tomorrow!!! So kicked myself up the arse and did a bit more, this is still WIP and a few details to sort yet, but this is getting close to were I am happy.






Well I will be catching up with all your blogs, I have been loitering, but just not good at present.
IRL
Spoiler:
Just crap really, Dr has put me onto Morphine tablets, and Psycho are worried as apparently picking at your skin until it bleeds is self harming, it is a subconscious thing, but it's not great, got a scar on my stomach that has been a scab for over 4 months now, so apparently I need seeing too. Sounds fun. Wife wont let me out in public alone. And funny enough if it is remotely icy out I wont go out anyway. Getting slightly agoraphobic. You would think that all that time locked up with me models would work out well. Nope, got n real desire to do F all. Family are great but to be frank and honest, hold me down every time I try and get up. So life is gak here. OK now but spent the last 2 weeks with 5 adults surviving on £3.50 from the copper jar, genuinely skint. Not eaten in the last 3 days, but OK today, "payday" so can get some food. Just wish it would move on a bit, it's bloody boring here.And please, please, please no I do not want anyones money or help, you guys just listening is enough. So by all means comment on my crap sculpting just to let me know I can still make you guys smile at least.
I don't want to whinge on and not after sympathy, many of you have shown me such amazing care and respect already I just wanted to throw an update out.

Thank you for looking in and would love to hear what you think of the sculpt.

I appreciate the update on your life Cam, thank you. Hang in there. It's also really nice getting to see so much progress on your entry for the sculpture competition. it looks great! You may be able to take a slight breath before doing the finishing touches, this year is leap year so there is one extra day this month.

first thing that I though of when I saw the sculpt:



Also, how you Brits pronounce Jaguar "Jag-you-are" instead of "Jag-wahr". Strange, I know.

The sculpt looks very fitting. Any specific historic reference, or is it a fusion?

Hello, back from the abyss.

No more bad news on here. It's all pretty gak, but no more on here.

So back at it.
Made a rig to sand the track pieces to a consistent thickness.



Now settling down to sand 400 tracks, no worries. Back soon.

Post by: Viktor von Domm


cool... how wobbly would you say is the construction? i mean it has some serious rpm for sure...?

as for the tracks... have you considered a softer material like foam/styrodur and then slice them off the before shaped block?... could save you some hours...

hows life on your island? we recently (october 2019) left the big city of berlin and traded it with a new apartment in brandenburg ...way spacier and not so overcrowded... thus the whole big "C" issue is like a far away bad dream... sure we had to go hunting for toilet paper but other than than it´s fairly like a picnic here...? the media currently doesn´t compare to well with what we currently see as some subjective reality...

thus best wishes to all of you everywhere!!!

Smart thinking Cam

Possibly could have made the jig hold 2 pieces of track - then only 200 goes needed. Would that still connect smoothly with the sander?

Enjoy the soothing drone of the sanding...

Post by: Camkierhi


Thanks folks.

My process is probably a bit weird. So I painted it metal, sealed that in with a clear coat, now painted it factory fresh, and will be messing it up! The parts are now all assembled, it is in 4 parts still, legs, torso and each arm, but it is going to be left unglued from here on. I will now weather the bare body, and will be adding embellishments. Some wolf skulls, a skin or two, maybe a cloak and banner, thinking about a shield, etc. These will get glued on after I scrape the paint off enough to get plastic to plastic.

I know many people will fully build a kit before it ever sees paint, it may be in sub assembly's but has all parts finished glued. I prefer to do my way as, when you get the model in hand you can seethe deep recesses are not just left in shadow but actually painted. Means I paint a lot of unnecessary bit, and a lot will either never be seen or no one cares anyway.

All that waffle, so I can show you some halfway pics. Nowhere near finished though I guess it would be fine to table.








Any and all input most welcome. Hope it maybe helps someone.

I applaud the work, and doing sub assemblies.

Will you do a salt type technique to get the weathering done?

Thank you folks.

Progress. Done a bit of sculpting.






And with flash so you can maybe see more details.



Trying to feel human again, I am so very sorry, I am not who or what I was once, life keeps going on though. Thank you all so much for your support, I am really trying to pull it up again.

Lots of love to you and your family, Cam. You aren't feeling like yourself, but you will one day. Keep trying, I am proud of you for how hard you already push yourself. I really like all the details and alterations you are adding to the dread.

Sometimes trying is all you can do, and there is no shame in doing all you could do. Keep on sluggin'.

That turned out beautifully. I love the cloak and the blending on the back modules.

Keep being awesome Cam I like your finished dread. It's also nice seeing you post more often after your long silence (no pressure tho).

Love the step by step on the Dreadnought build. Great final results too.

Never took you for a Space Wolf kind of guy though.
