Great work everyone, and those are some excellent pics mekugi

General life and stuff been gettingin the way last couple of weeks, but I'm still here...hoping a good run at it on Saturday will see it finished....or at least in a state I can call finished and take pics of

Paint has commenced on the characters, albeit roughly as yet, and the road itself is just about done.....and some pics to show something is still happening...





note to self: don't forget to sort out some backpacks.....

All right, this should be a busy week-end for you guys, and the calm before the storm for us judges. Except me. I need to figure out this forum's PM system, as a few of you have already learned.

Currently, we have entries from:
Littletower
Mekugi
M0rdain
xXWeaponPrimeXx

Excellent work gentlemen, and thank you entering.

Me too. Real Life has me by the throat these days, and for the foreseeable future, so I will not be in it. I've had zero hobby time this week.

Not dead, just busy and had to decide: Groceries or Internet?


Work up to this point:


Completed tire spikes and ready for priming/painting





The board I decided to use that was cheap and effective was the back of a dry erase board. I attached the cork board with rubber cement and weathered it up as well as roughed up the edges a little. I wanted this road to appear to be fairly new, but not as if just recently paved either. I also tried to add some depth to the areas that will be grass by attaching some styrene to make it less flat. Flocking and such to come. Using Frog Tape I painted the lines onto the road, again, not weathering them too much so as to look like the road was made within the last year or so. It bled a little through the tape so a little clean up is needed.


The barricades are mostly done. I just need to get the reflectors painted and add some details in the painting.







The street lights are made up almost entirely of pens, using the tube and caps as well as that little end piece. These are almost ready for priming, just need to file off the little "made in china" spots on them. The circuits used for this will be two parrellel sets of LEDs, 4 white in one and 2 red/1blue in the other, which should eliminate my need of a resistor which so many guides insist on having. The whites, naturally are in streetlights while the other will be in the guard shack. The guard shack will also be making use of Fiber Optic cable so as to add more realism to various spots inside the shack as well as outside the shack. All lights will be controlled by a single switch located inside the air conditioning unit on the roof of the guard shack.

So, I am expecting to be done either Sunday night or Monday afternoon, weather and kids permitting.





There are 10 types of people in this world; those that know binary and those that dont.

PM with link to gallery sent.

Didn't quite get it to where I wanted, and looking at pics can see lots of other bits I've missed paintwise...but that's not the worst of it.

I dropped it earlier today, so some of the tentacles are a little shorter than they were, and several bits had to be re-done and slime-strands re-attached.... ....and it turns out it's not that stable and during a choppy patch in the afternoon it went over again.....more re-working required.

And then I dropped it whilst taking pics.....so only got one pic of the overall thing because for some reason I did detail shots first.......and it's now in several bits again.

Should be fixable, but I just haven't got it in me to try and sort it now, and then try another shoot.....

Still, got something entered

omg...monkey...that sounds cruel...but after all... you played around with forces that doesn´t like to shown here it seems...

(wheeww... might be my only chance to top your entry at all......as it is such a freaking detailed entry...)

and gamesetc... that looks like a hefty workload to finish... but it is worth it... that looks very promising!!!

as from my own finishing line... I will be making my own final post in my own thread this very hour...and will write then a pm to red to have it all wrapped up...
(to be frank...didn´t knew I would be able to finish this one...but glad I did nevertheless...)

cheers, vik

I'm very sorry to hear that Barnzie4Moop. I can sympathize about the RL stuff.

So we now have:
Camkierhi
Viktor von Domm
MonkeyTroll

For a total of 7 entries. I'll do a summation post for everybody's entries sometime tomorrow evening, when I have time, complete with a few choice pictures of each entry.

There is still ~8 hours to go folks, so plenty of time

Judging will start after the deadline passes and we have all the entries organized.

To those that didn't finish in time, I hope you continue and finish your pieces.

I'm working my way though the entries (and the many many pictures that you have supplied... over 200 images for all 7 of you) and will be doing my customary write-ups. Let me know, on here is fine, if you want it sent to you or posted on here for everyone to see, and I'll release them after the results are finalised.

In the mean time, here's some music to keep you entertained:
