Title: Demise of the QE2
Post by: kpnuts on June 20, 2019, 03:49:57 AM
Hi all well due to the move these are the last pics of a scratch built  7'4" model of the new QE2

I fear I will be burning loads more.

I'm trying to figure out how you can have a fire that close to vegetation without at least a metre of cleared ground all around & not have it set the entire state alight! :o


Recovering from that: I feel your pain but, sometimes, as gut-wrenching as it may be, it needs to be done & is for the greater good. :icon_meditation:




I can't believe I just wrote that shit!

Why destroy them?  Fair enough if you don't want them yourself but why not first offer them for sale?

No one would buy it been through trying to sell models before, and I couldn't give it away it was too big.

Title: Model "Funeral Pyres"
Post by: Retired In Kalifornia on July 19, 2019, 05:53:37 PM
Absolute last one for me was of a badly built Airfix P-38 one afternoon winter 2005-6 during a rainstorm no less. Still remember the 1960s pyres; hissing, bubbling styrene minute or so after igniting the gasoline, thick black acrid smoke wrapping 'round the engine nacelles of that hand brushed & spray can-painted Airfix Heinkel 111H-20 winter 1965-6 in particular, only time I'd ever see perfect soot stains 'round engine nacelles. The final 1960s "Burning Men" were 16 or so models formerly hanging over the bedroom ceiling one afternoon 50 years ago last June, thought then I'd never build models again.

The place looks wet.

Way back as a kid, some of the worst ones I built ended up as airgun targets.
