I see, Robert!

Please accept my sincere thanks for allowing the community to follow the build of your great WHIF vehicle!
I hope to see you again- sometime in the future - in a possible sequel.




it was an interesting campaign and I really should've restarted got back modelling sooner in the year, unfortunately that was not to be.. I will be back (and if there is a 2nd scratch build campaign give me a shout)...

I don't suppose I could ask for just a little more time for this campaign? Say like one more week?

In the US our income tax deadline is April 15 and that has been a conflict for me in completing my project!



Will another week(till April 22nd) be enough for you, Mike?
Can't promise, but it won't hurt me asking John.

My Callsign is partly named after my second Cat. Speedy, (J added and you have my favorite DJ from Techno Parties), was a real lady, when I was at home. Leaving my apartment and I always waited one floor below, she got naughty, going every where I did forbid. But after al those years, she did not damage anything.
When at work at my modeling table she could come to watch, but did not reach out to something, just amazed by what I was doing. Once had a fight with her, gave me some nasty wounds on my arms, but I finally got her by the neck. and managed to get her in a corner of the couch. Good and firm talk, kept looking into those magic Cat eyes and she gave up, she winked and looked down. Won the battle.

Cats...

Too smart by far.... smarter than us.

Think about it. They lie around all day, get fed and get attention. They don't 'fetch' or do any interaction with us but demand ... and we still keep them as pets.

I see

Not long ago, the cat of a modelling buddy of mine ate out the barrel of the Leoplod gun he was doing in 1:72.
Then he bought a metal barrel and said to the cat- "Try this again now!".

Well, the cat did not try on the metal barrel, but did try on an almost finished 1:700 submatine...

Cats- they're much more clever than we think!

It will be a cool dio,Peter!

No moggies were hurt in the filming of this movie....

Circumstantial evidence only. Battery pack gone, cat in modelling room. 1 + 1 = culprit.

He is still alive... he is a VERY large cat. Our Vet has never seen a larger one that is not just fat. This and having led a long life hunting our large marsupials, with more scars than skin, it would be a brave man that tried to harm him...

I am building a Matchbox Citroen 11 Legere for the Matchbox Group Build I am hosting here. I am building it as a "confiscated by Germans and pressed into use by a propaganda unit" little dio. The camera and fittings are to be used in the dio. See here:

Looking very fine, Peter!
You have 2 more days to lay some paint on

Just curious(I know it killed the cat )-where do you plan using this Camera set?

Okay, forgot the end of the build is getting close!

Basic build done. Camera now fixed into new tripod mount, tripod legs done, battery pack mark 2 (mark 1 is AWOL - here kitty, kitty ), camera case and case for spare film magazines.



sorry for the quality. No macro lens and if I pull back further they are just white blobs.

Great with an extension - I managed to finish in time though. Quite satisfied with the final result and looks nice despite being made up of small bits and pieces from the spares box.

Looking forward to see how everybody else finishes.
