The workbench in progress
« on: September 01, 2009, 07:16:16 pm »
Finally cleared up the hobby room enough to get back to the hobby table. So I'm trying to catch up projects and clear a couple half-done projects.



I'm glad to be doing instead of watching once more!  ;D :party:
USS New Jersey, BB-62, Vietnam
USS Neshanic, AO 71, out of Lindberg Neches and a WHOLE lot of extra details
And several other vessels named after NJ, locations and battles herein, and people herefrom

Interesting ship there Joe - looks odd with the triple over the double like that, like an inverted Andrea Doria.

Overkill? Nah, it's Insurance.  So are the 20" guns.

Noice!  :thumbsup: What's that plane to the rear of the ship? Looks very cool!  Bear-derived flying wing? :wacko:  :bow:
Cheers,
Moritz


Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

The tiny little airplanes have my attention. I can't wait to see what you do with them!

The ship is based on a drawing, in Russian, I don't remember where I found. Maybe wunderwaffe.ru?

The planes on the left are for a project I've mentioned elsewhere here. They go with the printed photo on the right rear.

The flying wing is something that suddenly came to me and I started cutting. It'll be done soon.

The other plane behind the ship is a tandem V-22, something I'd been thinking about for a while and finally just started cutting plastic.

Weaver, you'll see my "Kolrabie" in the upper right corner. It is what you thought, but with a Patchwork World twist.

I am seriously glad to be modeling again. I almost forgot how much fun it is!   :rolleyes:
