nyone here into models?

Postby Master Jedi Mike on Mon Nov 23, 2009 10:31 am

Modeling is one of my hobbies. In fact it's my #1 hobby above woodworking, rocktumbling and my houseplants.

Got into it soon after I saw Star Trek IV. I thought it would be cool to have spaceships that I made up on my dresser or on a mantle or something instead of a pre-built, pre-finished toy.

This is my Alien 3 creature.

ooooh, "anyone." I thought you were talking about the television station.
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

cool would be ne1. I just assumed you had a keyboard like mine - missing a couple of keys.

That alien is purty spiffy. Do you make these things from scratch?

I don't do models, can't hardly see anything smaller than a bus. I also have a tendency to bust stuff, especially small stuff. One of the consequences of being large, I suppose. My nuncle is into the model train scene big time. He's in a club that has a monster setup, takes about ten guys to run it. Cool enough, I guess, but I'd be more into the Adams Family method (6:10).

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

I used to share a flat with a guy who did architectural modelling, and modelling for movies and TV. He had a lot of bits and pieces of model kits, bits of plastic, interesting stuff he found in skips, and thousands of different paints. He got me interested in modelmaking for a while.

At the time I was into motorbikes, so I made a few bike models (including a rather spiffy 1:12 Harley Davidson / 1:24 Dennis Fire Tender trike), but unfortunately I lost them along with most of my possessions in the great 'unmedicated girlfriend with accelerant, matches and a grudge' incident of 1991.

Yes. She was sectioned as a result, but she was back out on a treatment order a few months later. I have contacts in Social Work, so I know where she is and how she's doing, but the arrangement is not reciprocal.

Perhaps you could build a model of her so we can all avoid her if we spot her on the other side of the street and we are wearing anything flammable.
