It sprouted a guppy tail when I wasn't looking!



So all the paint is on now so it will be decal time here quickly.



I need to get on with this as next Saturday is the club's "Get out of your comfort zone" challenge reveal.  Decals, touch ups, mount on the base and assembly the band.
At least it doesn't look like this thing.



And you Aussies thought you had all the strange animals! Commonlly known as the Tully monster, it's the Illinois state fossile. Its only found in the Mazon Creek Lagerstštte which is only about 30 miles from my house. A very interesting place if you're into palentology.

That Tullimonstrum gregarium is certainly a weird one & just goes to show that there ain't nuthin' so weird that Humans can make that Nature can't do weirder! ;D ;)

Heh. The original was only about two~three feet long, if memory serves. But its very oddness has inspired much, from decorating the sides of U-Haul trailers, to one of the wonkiest theories about the identity of the Loch Ness monster...

(Holiday goes to great lengths to prove that Nessie is a gigantic specimen of Tully monster. Naturally, the cover conveys no hint of this. Anyway, back to the model.)

Come to this one late, looking good that Victor fuselage is a perfect shoe-in for a sub :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

To me it had to be built as a sub or space ship. Then the generous Mr Fontaine sent me a box o parts which included the sub sail so sub it was.

There is another pile-o-parts accumulating if you want to go for another round of "whats in the box"...  ;)

I'm declaring this model finished!











I'll try to complete the band in HO scale. New paint and a left handed guitar player. Maybe some equipment around the band.

Looking 'very finished'.   Such a stand and font, perfect for display.    :smiley:

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Could you imagine that? And having in dry dock to paint it yellow?

Thanks guys!
The hull was the Victor bomber fuselage, the sail was the only submarine part, rudder and rear plane were junk aircraft parts, the diving planes on the sail were horizontal stabilizers from an Apache helicopter with all the rivets sanded off, the periscopes were pieces of sprue with a curved end and the base was from the back of an old printer I junked. So I didnít have to buy anything. The decals were printed on my inkjet printer and the color density was a little thin so the orange and yellow background tinted the decal colors. Iíll live with that.

Still working on reconfiguring Paulís arms. George is finished painting as he has the simplest costume. John and Ringo need stripes but I donít know how that will work. It would be hard enough in 1/35th but HO scale? I managed a fairly decent bass for Paul plus microphones for everyone. I need some shade of purple for Paulís jacket.
