Thank you my friend!Grendels said:Nicely done!
Thank you for the kind words Mr. Gag! You're right there are tons of cool parts in this kit that would be great for scratch building starship details. As far as the main paint job I have been doing some tests with different camo patterns and colors. I want to do something a little different than my usual deep green scheems. Im thinking maybe a grey/blue and grey/green camo pattern. Still working it out ;DThe Nylon Gag said:Just catching up with this one MrN
Buddy, wow, what a great start, lights look fantastic
As a scratchbuilder those first sprue shots gave me greebly envy, and i saw about.....well, i could of used all of it. ;D
Any ideas on colouring yet?
Thanks so much John, Im a big fan of your work so its quite encouraging to hear.JohnSimmons said:Dont you dare tear up a Ma.K Camel Gag! Lol. Awesome work on this man.
Thanks man, so glad you're enjoying the build! I thought long and hard about lighting the cockpit but I decided against it this time around since this is my first lighting project and having a deadline I didn't want to jinx myself and not be able to get it done because it would be rather complicated (for me anyway) to light the cockpit. I want to purchase another kit and spend a good 6 months lighting it up and detailing it out more.the Baron said:Excellent build, MrNatural! I've missed following this, so I got caught now.
Great solution for lighting the thruster! Have you though about lights in the cockpit, too? Apologies if you mentioned it and I missed it. I can see some fiber options or some wheat grain lamps in there.
Also, a heads-up, but from other Camel builds going on at Krueger's Maschinen Krieger forum (www.maschinenkrueger.com/forum), getting the pilot into the seat might require shaving his bum a little.
This is such a wonderful kit, and I look forward to seeing your build.
PS-I agree about the kit hoses. I like using solid copper wire, with or without an insulated coating, wrapped with a piece of fine wire. No seams, you can shape it however you want, and you can coat it, too, to help tie everything together.
Will do sir!java said:Fire it up!. 8)
Thanks my friend!CheesyGrin said:
I think I waited for this kit to come out for over a year, I even set the money aside for it so right when it came out I could snag one up.Grendels said:
Thanks man, I understand, I have trouble finding the time to comment as much as I would like to. Thanks for checking it out!Ravhin said:I've not commented often but I've been following closely, as I wait for my own camel to arrive ;D. That office looks simply stunning.
Thanks buddy!ModelMakerMike said:WOW.. That is schnazzy!
All the work you have done on the cockpit, is great!!!! ;D
Thanks for checking it out man, I do appreciate it.steezy said:This has been a very interesting build so far!
Thanks man, yeah, its bigger than I thought it would be. And yeah, that cockpit is a bit claustrophobic!Cave_Dweller said:This looks really cool, also a lot bigger than I thought. Shaping up nicely although that cockpit doesn't look very comfortable for long lunar missions...
Thanks man!!Solander said:Great work on the cockpit!
Like the colors!
Thanks dude!java said:Cockpit rocks!.
Thanks man, shoelaces is not a bad idea at all, might be slightly troublesome to work with, I got 25 feet of this fiberglass tubing for something like $5 to my door.the Baron said:Nice detailing in the cockpit, CG! I like your idea for replacing the power hoses, but something just came to mind--I have shoelaces that have the same texture I bet they could be used, maybe soaked with some thinned white glue to stiffen them
