I began as a drawing concentration, and still am, but lately I've switched to (surprise surprise) sculpture.  I'm trying to draw together many of my interests into one conhesive unit, interests that include aviation.  I've been building a few wall-mounted pieces that are inspired by the tail units of aircraft.  I've done three different ones, each with a different technique, but I'd like to do more.

My senior year (next year!) I have to put on a one-man show, and I'm considering the possibility of getting some of my models in it.

As for after I graduate..... I don't have a clue!  Shock [:O]

Um... wow.  TOTALLY didn't realize ANY of that.  That is... (edited) AMAZING!  I'm going to have to take a longer gander at the website later, but that's really sweet.

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. A fraulein! Just what the other thread was missing. But what's up with the mysterious Gestapo looking guy? I am looking forward to letting this one unfold. And what will chuk call the coin this time? Giant Pfennig Eagle? And the burly guy? This is more than just your everyday tutorial, this has entertainment value. Thanks, chuk!

Dunno if this is the same kit, reboxed, but it could be a sign (good) of things to come....

Giant Pfennig Eagle- I like that!

I'm deeply grateful for the warm reception given to my introductory post- many thanks!  As usual, though, I'm running against the clock, so my lovely assistant Fritzi will get this project, um,  into gear!

That little sucker would've come in real handy when I was building my Short Stirling.  I might have to steal- I mean, appropriate the design in the future.  Wink [;)]

Your riveter is a nice adaptation of a pattern tracing wheel. I am not 100% certain, but I think that your telephone tool might just be an old example of a tool that is used to lay wire conductors neatly tucked away in a crowded circuit tray.

Was spell bound by the Helldiver postings, will be watching this one like a hawk as well.  I dont think of these as Works in Progress but more of a tutorial and how-to, with some great illustrations to keep us entertained.  Love it, keep up the great work.

Looking forward to watching this one. followed the Helldiver build with great interest. That cartoon 'Fritzie' reminds me of an ex G/F of mine. could almost be a caracature of her cept Ellen had bigger..... er.... blue eyes - if you know what I mean ;-)

All the best.

Excellent, Chuck, I just got an alert that you started the new build, a great start!  You do not disappoint, I like how you even scratchbuild your tools.

And as the others have noted, great characters, especially Marlene ("Zay it viss me, now, poys-mar-layhn-eh")  But here's a challenge for you--would you scratchbuild and modify the kit figures into your characters?  It only seems fitting, that they be there with the final product.

Can't wait for your next installment!

Chuck,

You are one amazingly talented person!  Thanks for sharing your skills with us mere mortals!  Looking forward to the build.  I made a "rivet" tool using an old watch gear.

I have to say that your previous build was incredible and I will be watching this one as well.

Since I'm just getting into scribing and detailing your thread is very informative.

May I ask what size that watch gear is?

I have a few sitting around including 2 with dual rows of teeth.

Thanks. 

 

Eric...
