This is definitely the best jet-bike ever... including star wars etc. Because it looks so... well... normal! Like the next evolution step of moto-cross-bikes and jet skis. The paint job sells it. Plus of course the design cries "speed": Something Lucas did right, but GW did not. Fie for that ravenwing jet bike, it's a flying brick of shame, it is! THIS is how it's done!

Thanks Lion. Glad you think so (but maybe hang around a bit longer ). Those extra details are what I enjoy most about modelling.

Thanks Stormwall. Unique is the point of this army. I'm glad many people think it is also cool.

Ruglud wrote:Excellent mate, just excellent... An I-robot vibe going on with the paint job on the lady-cron...
Thanks. Yeah, that's the vibe. Although I couldn't use grey or blue shading for the white (due to the colour of the bike), I may make something closer to I-Robot in the future.

Thanks MT. Some aren't as crisp as I'd like, but the best I can achieve at the moment.

Thankie kindly Mr 'Splitta.

Thanks ckig.

I have finished tidying my workspace and have started making a mess of it again.
However, this is a project that will be going in my other blog as it's something to sell. (nothing to show yet, but keep your eyes peeled for that thread reappearing)

And remember to check out the LoER competition...

Thanks lliu. Just don't look too closely at my earlier work.

I sat down today at my work space (or at least rolled my chair forward to the desk) to go though my bits and find something that I could possibly use for the Terminators I'm working on... there's a knock at the door and a package for me...

...My prize for the LoER contest from OMN!!!

And Holy

More bits...

and not just a few more bits, I've just spent ages sorting though these and re-arranging my bits collection to accommodate them all.

There are (in no particular order):
A couple of sniper rifles, some future AK-alikes, and 2 blades.
A couple of drill bits, a teapot, toaster, and radio (love that radio), and something that had me stuck for quite a while but is actually a loaf of bread.
A hatch and some turret weapons (really like the flamer end).
The top of a vehicle, some fuel tanks (or similar), some ridged things and some lamp-post top-like things.
A load of fancy-edged bases, a couple of windows (may see if I can use the filled in one as it is), a couple of big wheels, some lights and a (very nice) dual bolter-alike.
Some flying buttresses.
Some headlights, a hatch, some little hatches with vision ports, some co-ax' (or hull-mounted) bolters and flamers, a few grills, some cylindrical fuel tanks and some things that are probably batteries with vents (but I think look like car sub-woofers), load more lights, some megaphones, some little wheels, exhaust pipes, and some random armour plates (?).
Loads of bottles and cans (love the flat sided bottles), more lights, drain grills, strange Gothic shaped things (?), little storage boxes and electrical boxes and control panels, battery packs and vents... so many vents... (nice fan ones too).
A turret (that the previously mentioned turret weapons fit into), a couple of boxes (that are very much like the metal boxes from Fallout 3), some terrain bits of various shapes, some riveted metal plate things, some trench crossing things (damn you dyslexia... rails, trench rails), and some of those things for models to stand on stairs with.
Some Gothic postboxes, more lights, more and large boxes, vent-like boxes, large calibre tank gun ends, a couple of doors/wall sections, and a load of sprue bits.

And the last photo shows my workspace completely swamped with the large volume of bits before I put them all away in their rightful places.


Thanks OMN. Great selection, nice pieces (puts some of my casting efforts to shame). Love it.

Holy Moly I wish I had entered now although I would not have won anyway

Nice Haul indeed I know as Noodle has taken some of my hard earned cash but well worth it he has created some nice pieces and the resin casts are pretty clean and free from issues.

Anyway back to you Doc can't wait see what you come up with next besides the terminators of course

Oh good you got it.

The windows were the first casts I made of them, so I'm still figuring out how to cast them best. That bolterish thing was intended to be an exhaust / engine... If you want to use it as a bolter thing by all means do as you wish .

Strange gothic shaped things... which one I think you mean the little alcoves (at least that's what I call them), if it's the cylindrical shaped things or the half hexagon things... yea.. no idea. You should have plenty of lights and vents though.

I think I sent you about .5 kg of resin there, between your's and Cam's prizes you made a small dent on my stockpile. Speaking of Cam he hasn't gotten back to me yet to claim his prize...

I just hope some of those things will be useful to you! Thanks for making such an awesome entry!

Thanks Red'.
It might be because grimme is too close to grime which is dirt or a type of music, and therefore not grim; which is... grim (a bit like the north... )

At the rate I build things, the game will have moved on and something else will be the broken powergamer's friend. I might even have played the game by then... and Satan will be skating to work...

Thanks.

Thanks Magos. I like to imbue all my models with character and the characteristics of a jet-bike is that it is fast.

Ah yes, that makes sense. A matter of perception. Might still use it as a gun anyway, but either way, I'll need to build something to put it on first.

Yeah, the alcoves.
And nice lights and vents they are.

I think Cam' is still in the middle of moving, so he's either busy or doesn't know which address to give you.

I just hope some of those things will be useful to you! Thanks for making such an awesome entry!
Everything will be useful. Maybe not as what they are intended (intentionally or not; see engine/gun), but they will all find a use.
Thanks again.

The Scientist has quite a backlog of materials to work with (and write fluff about).

I have been busy creating a wooden hut kit over in my "money-making" thread. Once that is cast up and ready to go, I'll be back here for something new...
