It's every kind of awesome, you're a frighteningly talented chap. I understand your struggles all too well, hobby is pretty much the only release valve I have. Don't feel guilty about lurking, just enjoy the view. Whilst the daily grind can be utterly demoralising, just think how weird it is that you can brighten people's day with some bits of cardboard, plastic and paint. That's a real gift, that is.

The sand crawler is coming along great-- it's going to be quite the centerpiece when it's finished.

There's not much beyond words of encouragement that I can offer from the other side of the world. Your work and your comments really make time spent on Dakka feel well spent.

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!

Holy cow, is that a custom scratch build Sand Crawler?!?! That is amazing. Are you using it for Legion? Or just building for fun? Either way, it is epic. Keep up the great work Cam.

Thank you all so very much for your kind and generous words. I truly appreciate it.

Fiddled a bit with control panels.


And did external panelling for nose.


Then sorted the ramp. A hinge embedded in and some magnets to hold.




Lots still to do. C&C welcome.

Lots of nifty details inside that sand crawler. I assume you cast those in resin?

That's looking iconic Cam I wonder if any movie companies still make scale models rather than all the CGI stuff? You should apply for a job if they do.

Greebling always feels like a Lego modelling term to me. Oddly appropriate here though.

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.

Thank you for looking.
