More progress pics soon-ish, oh and if anyone's interested the NinJa scientist has been grounded till he's 9 in October or is it September. I honestly thought he was 9 already but turns out he's still 8, meh I've been 35 for the last 3 years simply cuz I forget these kind of things and if it was really important they would tattoo stuff like that on yer arm before you leave hospital wouldn't they! wouldn't they??? Anyway he's grounded till me or the wife gives in so he may get some more models done before parole time.

quick stick together of some extra parts that will be going on soon. Also I've bought a palm sander for taking back some of those big lumps along the side. I know there there but until i get a coat of primer on her its hard to see them. Hoping to work on the layout of teh cockpit and form teh canopy area this week plus get the lower setions smooth and start plating the rear sections.

This has got to be one of the best sites anywhere if your looking to see the creations of a master of the scale model scratch building art. Even if you don't like Space Battle Ship Yamoto and don't understand the babel fish translations just the images along make it worth anyone's while to spend a good hour or so soaking up the skills this guy has. It's a site i will be referencing A LOT for my recon ship build, which i will be updating you all on tomorrow.
Ha ha, I apologize for the grand opinion i have of my little blog reaching that big an ordinance but it helps me push on with builds and organise my plans and thoughts so it's gotta be worth it just for that.

LOT'S o putty (P38 car stuff) and ally mesh to form shapes and I'm looking to buy a palm sander at the weekend cuz there's still LOT'S more putty work to do. There is a definite plan going on here even tho it looks very random as it's progressed and junk an kit bits have come to the top of the greebly box ( i just get a bit of old pipe and swish it around till i spot something i like) When I've finished streamlining the bottom and where the to different pipes meet i will start on the nose and cockpit area. Still need to find a couple of 1/48 or 1/35 pilots that look scifi-ey sort of looking. Ohh I've cut of the nose err prow is it of the Carl Vincent and glued on a kinder egg after seeing a Canberra pic online. More putty arrrrrrrrggggggg.
More soon as this build is flowing quite well (in my head) so i need to get it more done before all the random kit parts i've been putting aside start getting used in other builds.
