That launcher's excellent - well done!

The whole thing reminds me very much of '70s sci-fi art.

Nope, definitely not overdone. Perfect ... maybe not, but it's pretty close. ;)

Hi Guys!

First of all sorry for almost a year of absence, just have few things to sort out.
But in the meantime I've finished one of old projects started probably somwhere in 2011 na postponed, well for better times ;) .

In 2011 I've fought about building Sherman tank that appeared in Fallout Tactics:

But after some internet searching on Sherman tank varaints I've got stonger and stronger feeling that that Fallout Tactics modification is, well at least exorbitant waste of technology and equipment. Than I fought that if so many Crypts and at least one military base had survived the nuclear holocaust of 2160 than low priority targets like weaponary museums or even some private collections of military vehicles could survie to the era of Fallouts gameplay. So I've taken HVSS suspesion (from AFV Club), than added M4A1(75) Final hull (with “cast in appliqué”) and a final model of differential cover (both made by Panzerart) and changed old barrel for new one - literraly M1A1 Abrams cannon (RB Model). Then there was a long process of scratchbuilding of parts (back part of turret, some details and etc) just to give him an Israeli super sherman look. About 3 weeks ago airbrushing started and a process of building the diorama.
I've decided to make desert yellow cameo instead of metalic grey with rust, beacuse it looks more realistic especially in army like organization. In theory armour is reinforced with that super-duper compund used to hardening the surface of power armour (and it's covered by desert yellow cameo of course ;) ), propulsion is based on fusion batteries (same tehnology used in Fallout's 2 higwayman). i'd say that time frame of that vehicle is somwhere around Fallout New Vegas and later.

Ok enought of talking, here are some photos:







I've added springs from few ballpens and modiified the carriages of suspension to make it fully flexible







in future I'm plannig to made a larger diorama for it and adding a Willys based Fast Attack Vehicle (if all works out good some photos of that vehicle will be posted here around sunday)

As for other builds started in this thread - I'm planning to return to that martian variant of HEMMT, but first some paint removal must be done. Secondly I'm planning to finally finish Avro Arcturus but first there is still a lot of painting ahead...

Thanks for kind words :)
Besides I fought that 120 mm would be more than for enough for any kind of carnivorous fauna or flora encountered in Fallout universe.

Hi guys,

been a while since my last visit here, though it wasn't intended that way...
But in the meantime I've almost finished one of my never ending projects - some mecha from late 80's anime series called 'Blue Meteor SPT Layzner'. Funny thing is that these series is seriously outdated right now:
Quote
The Story takes place in the year 1996, where humanity is advanced enough to develop long-range space travel, as well as bases on both the Moon and Mars. However, the Cold War tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union have not ended; rather, they've escalated as both sides build military facilities in space, and the shadow of nuclear conflict looms over humanity, both on and off Earth.

Model was made by Bandai and as I heard it is some '4th grade' kit (?), basicly it should looks like that when finished:



But after some time spent with that model I've decided to gain bigger insight to the series universe (after all these mecha looks quite mean). That's how whiffed version was born. Except from changing the painting scheme I've added some details to whole body, scratchbuild the backpack (axhausts from some toy motor bike + space shuttle engine jets), shield (Eduard 1:48 Tiger fenders + two Warhammer standard swords) and modified the gun (basicly by adding a large portion of proto X-wing main gun to orginal one).
Here are results:



That USB cable on one of the photos is just for size refernce. Still haven't done all the chipping that was intended, but the model is almost done.
