Completed – The Dogan

The Dogan was a place of some sinister quality.  Whatever purpose it had once served was lost to the men that occupied this time.  Strange noises emanated from it on occasion, accompanied by strange smells of ozone and heat.  It was a squat octagon of concrete that seemed to belie a larger warren.  Like aContinue reading “Completed – The Dogan”

The Dogan Part 1

This project is a work in progress, tying together 3D printing, a model kit, and base building.  It is a dark future that takes place in this world or one not too terribly far along the beam as this one.  There are relics of a world gone by strewn across the landscape and not allContinue reading “The Dogan Part 1”

The M113 Part 3

I’m waiting on the Ukrainian postal service to send me the figures that will complete this project.  As a result, this will be the last post for awhile concerning the M113.  I’ll rustle something else up to keep me busy until then.  I’d just gotten the chipping done last you saw the vehicle.  At thisContinue reading “The M113 Part 3”

The M113 Part 2

When we last left, our hot dog-fingered protagonist was trying to super glue tiny metal shavings onto a hunk of plastic.  Did he succeed? What is he doing now?  What’s the next step?  Stay tuned to find out! Most of the photo etch in place, I gave everything a coat of primer through the airbrush. Continue reading “The M113 Part 2”

Completed – A Boy and His Dog

Father would have been proud.  The hunt had gone exceptionally well this season.  The slow muties had come out of the hills early this year.  But so had spring, after all.  Whatever warmth they derived from the deep holes and warrens they hibernated in had kept the muties quiet all winter.  Now that the frostContinue reading “Completed – A Boy and His Dog”

Interview With a Prop Master

I was browsing Reddit, waiting for glue or paint to dry, and stumbled across this amazing diorama.  If the internet is good for anything, it’s for showing you people that have the same hobbies as you… doing them better!  Another thing it’s good for is bothering strangers!  With that in mind I sent Nick aContinue reading “Interview With a Prop Master”

Completed – The Last Stop Part 2

They drew to a stop with a few feet to spare.  The cart’s wheels ground against the old rail like fingernails on a chalkboard.  The blockage on the rail presented itself when they rounded the corner about 200 feet back.  The pair had been going slow anyway.  It didn’t pay to fly around blind corners. Continue reading “Completed – The Last Stop Part 2”

The Last Stop Part 1

I decided to break out the spare parts boxes and give the 3D printer a rest.  The weather has gotten chilly here and that messes with the resin out in the garage.  I’ve saved just about every extra part and old model since I started the hobby, so I wanted to see what I couldContinue reading “The Last Stop Part 1”

Completed – The Final Lair of the Lavish Lizard

Caught this sucker in the chicken coop a week back. Wasn’t trying to eat a chicken, though. Was trying to lay an egg, I believe. The hoe made short work of it. I decided to mount the head. Legs fried up nice, too. All six of them!  Most of that wasn’t true. It’s actually aContinue reading “Completed – The Final Lair of the Lavish Lizard”

Completed – Hare o’ the Bear Part 3

The Hare had the scanner plugged into the control panel.  Its faint green glow was overshadowed by the glow of the C-ALL goggles he wore on his face.  The goggles told him there wasn’t any lifeforms on the other side of the door.  This was good.  They also indicated that the thickness of the doorContinue reading “Completed – Hare o’ the Bear Part 3”
