Might as well doing something hot whilst it is cold.......
A raw brass 44" Eagle Spine so far made from the spares box (and I still have loads of spare fish mouthed bit left, but not enough to make anything else).
The spine so far, included about £100's worth of material. With luck someone thinks I have added some value to this, I will put it up on eBay.
It has come out really nice so far, flat and straight, just one or two tube to adjust the line of but looking ok.
I will definitely add the angled ends before offering for sale and will consider adding the 3/32" diagonals, I will check to see what material I have left over.
I am adding the diagonals, the end sloped pieces and have cleaned up a little before finishing. Just waiting on some extra small diameter brass tube now. Looking good and will definitely be up for sale.
I have one spare with ear moulding on eBay (now sold).
If anyone would like one, I can make to order. I have One spare Ear Moulding.
Just let me know. Thanks.
Couple of images from the internet.
I haven't been around for a while. I have been doing some bits and pieces of modelling but an unintended break seemed to happen for no apparent reason.
I have a massive collection of data for war gaming and sci-fi modelling and have been wondering what to do with it.
I have signed up to Patron, a great place where creative types can get a bit of support and where collectively this can be meaningful. For me it will be a way of sharing data at very little cost to individuals but might make something to cover my efforts.
Have a look, I am offering two levels of support, one at $2 and the other at $5. At the $5 level, I will offer CAD data at my Battletech Longbow and Star Wars Tie Scimitar level. I will get on and finish my Star Wars Tie Tank and offer that.
Feel free to let me know what you think.
I purchased a few books of interest, sacred geometry, golden section, and one on compass and ruler exercises.
I really love the sacred geometry styled Gothic church windows. I have designed some in CAD and shall print some off with the hope that they make nice details for MDF type laser cut buildings for war gaming.
Also available on my Shapeways shop.
Here's one to look at; set of 4 windows works out as a good price.
To help me get this project moving I am offering the STL files for personal use through Kickstarter. If you are interested please check the Kickstarter page out. Funding closes on the 1st Feb 2017.
If you want any extra info or details; give me a shout here or there.
Machined jigs from 6mm thick aluminium plate.
The guides locate the cross tubes in position and at the correct height. Although the plate is a big heat sink the soldering is fine with a small butane torch.
The single jig is one to go along with my others; the combination jig is made to include the spine and cage location holes and made to order.
Added to the Shapeways Store.
2 versions of the radar tower; both with a control bunker below the base / in the base, one with a larger dome and extended supporting structure.
The structure / base is available on its own or with a hollowed out water tower.
The radar control towers are in scale equivalent to about 20m tall and the water tower when assembled at about 25m tall.
I have some 6mm 1/285 resin buildings and items for sale on ebay. I have adjust the price to offer a better deal.
See the ebay page here.
I don't have any feedback and wonder if this is why I didn't get much interest before (I have sold a few bits and pieces elsewhere with good feedback).
If you have come across this page and might be interested, thank you - I am honest, the prices I believe are fair but I am looking for positive feedback on ebay. If you are interested in the items and mention this post in the Paypal notes I will send a couple of extra items free. I will send my large command centre and the other smaller command bunker (the hex shaped one). These can be found in the blogs - check the data sheet filter and found on the Shapeways page.
Thanks for reading, feel free to get in touch if you are interested in a different set of parts or if you have any other feedback. Contact me or comments here are good for me.
I have been on the Facebook War Gaming Trade and Sell page, see the comments for a deal on a bundle set of buildings here or give me a shout via the contact button.
I have put together a Sci-Fi Building set; suitable for 6mm scale gaming. Message me if interested, £24 with UK free post. Will post overseas.
Advertised on the Facebook page Wargame Trade and Sell 6mm - 10mm and managed to discuss making a set or 2 with Glenn from North Down War Gaming Centre.
