Wondering if there are any other model builders here...

Postby Turquoise Dragon on Sun Feb 24, 2013 4:59 pm

Curious if I'm the only modeller here or not. Personally only build trains and train-related stuffs.

A very small sample of some of the stuffs I've done:

Three engines I hand-painted. The left two I also asssembled from kits.

A series of commuter cars I assembled and hand-painted. Also took a hacksaw to the underframe of another locomotive to be able to power the first one. A number of other modifications were undertaken to make it work.

A refrigerator car I hand-painted to replicate the effects of the weather on a car that's been standing outside for a few decades.

I had a passing interest in models back when I was like 12. I think there are still some in my closet at home. I did airplanes for awhile too. Certainly nothing as complex as this.

Plastic or stickbuilt airplane models? I did a plastic one myself when I was like 10 os so. No idea what happened to it. I kinda have the opportunity to do a stickbuilt one now, as my dad bought one two years ago and never assembled it. After about a year, it's generally fari game to me to steal and build lol.

I dabbled in Warhammer about 9 years ago, but soon ran out of space to do what I wanted with them so I gave up the hobby. Was fun though.
