    Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    I noticed that as well; I'm wondering then if some type of latch could be worked into it that would be released when the motor started, and would be closed again when the ramp was drawn back up? Not sure how that would work, but just an idea.

    At this rate, they should just have Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer just tossing paper airplanes at each other.

    Back from my hiatus. The following is a photo record of my latest project:

    Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Update: The Dougram project just skidded to a permanent halt; while working on it, my hand slipped off one of the parts as i was test-fitting the pieces for modification and collided with the main body of the mode. Upon impact, all the blue pieces disintegrated. Total Loss. Thanks for tuning in folks, but with the amount of fragments, I think this one is out of my hands. On that note: I'm taking a hiatus from MWF. Burned out, depressed and just hate life right now. Be back in roughly 6 months (more or less)

    Custom Bandai/Matchbox 1/3000 SDF-1 Macross vintage

    That is just plain incredible! If I ever get another Matchbox SDF-1, I think I'd go that route! If you ever come across an old junker takatoku valk 1/55 (or jetfire), I've had luck removing the ratchet joint and plastic-welding the parts into place to replace it.

    As promised, pics of the Dougram as I got it: After doing an inspection on this and the Bushman, I decided to save the Bushman for later and focus first on the Dougram. It needs duplicates of the shoulder and arm armors, hip block, a new cockpit, backpack, weapons pods, pilot and new knee and ankle joints. Also, one shoulder was snapped in half, so I reworked that. Pics of current work: With the age of the plastic, trying to salvage the snapped linkages on the old parts was a major waste of time, so i removed them. I opted instead to replace them with clip joints from 1/144 Gundam kits (leftovers I scored at a thrift store) that would last longer and allow for disassembly without prying apart fragile glue joints. I took apart the remaining pieces that were glues, sanded and re-glued them, and will wash components when they are assembles as module units. The cockpit: while normally, scratching up a cockpit is a major hassle, the flat plates of the Dougram make this a lot easier: It's nice to have reference pics: (Pics courtesy of BigBadToyStore) Stay tuned folks...

    Is there any way you and Derex could carve up wood bucks and do a "heat and smash" of the canopies?

    Star Trek: Discovery

    Frankly. the Discovery looks like a hood ornament attached to someone's partially disassembled hard drive.

    Robotech by Titan Comics

    Just took a look at the "issue 11" preview. Frankly, I think I know how Rick's eyes got burned out in the comic: he also read the preview.... O.o

    Okay, got this today: It looks like "Condar" from the "Robotech Defenders" line (Fang of the Sun Dougram's "Bushman" if memory serves). So...who thinks this model is doomed, and who thinks I can save it? Bets anyone? Update: I apparently have most of the actual "Dougram" model as well (will take photos in a bit); just missing the head and weapons amongst a few other things.. I'm going to see if I can scratchbuild the missing parts on each. Stay tuned...

    Sketchley, Devcon Plastic Welder works wonders for reattaching small pieces. You can even make parts from it; I've had to when something fell and the components vanished.
