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.

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

You're doing better than I, Cam. I can't even get the momentum to build or paint.

Things are looking great on that Sandcrawler!

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.

You know me, statue is interesting, but I saw massive treads, so, wondering what is cooking and waiting to see what the whole vehicle comes out like.

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?
