So a few years ago I picked up a couple of these King Tiger models for an absolute song. So I haven’t taken any pictures of the build as I didn’t know I would be blogging when I started it, but now it’s finished there are a few below. I did enjoy this build. A lot of complex parts, individual tracks which were a new thing for me. To be honest it is a very nice looking tank. I have gone for a distressed winter camo look with this one. The first time I really used an airbrush, I started to learn about the effects of air pressure and paint thinning. Also played around with some weathering. Only had to deal with a couple of pieces of photo-etch, which were grills for the engine. In the end, I went for a winter finish. Here are the results, let me know what you think.Continue reading “Academy King Tiger Last Production Winter Camo”
A £5 Light Box for Foodies, Ebayers or Crafters
So this one is a project of necessity. So I took a few pictures of the King Tiger but I just wasn’t impressed with the result. Partly down to the camera on my phone and party down to the surroundings. So the way to go is a light box. I don’t have the money to buy one and I don’t have the time for a serious build so here is a cheap, cheap! Lightbox to get these pictures done. Continue reading “Homemade DIY Under £5 Light Box”
So I have decided to push ahead with some serious blogging in 2019 and feel the model making content is a good way to go. A Lot is still a learning process. I like a huge range of models probably modern armour is one of my greatest interest. However, I grew up building a lot of model aeroplanes. I have amassed a large collection of models to work on but some I clearly know is beyond my abilities. So I have picked myself up a few different cheap models to help hone my techniques.

If I didn’t have enough to do with the living room I thought why not build a shed. To be fair it is just one of those kits that you stick together. Managed to find this nice little pent shed. As it is for the girlfriend got some pink paint to finish it off.Continue reading “She Shed Part One Building A Pent Shed For The Girlfriend”

Sound clichéd but what the hey. After a huge November, I had a quiet December.
I love Christmas and the girlfriend did a spectacular job of decorating the house. Work was ok I arrived back at the start of December after a lengthy break. Felt good to be back!Continue reading “December 2018 A Little Bit Christmas”
This has been quite a busy and fun packed month.
I have had a couple of weeks of work so have been able to finish decorating the living room and hall. There will be some quite meaty posts coming about that.
So I got playing around with photoshop.
To be fair it is a huge program and I’m only just beginning, So my first project was to do some vector style cars..Went with the classics of a Mini Cooper and a Volkswagen Beetle.
I’m very happy with the results and want to explore some more now, I will upload my new project to HERE.
I have included the images below and the PSD file for you to use.
This weeks problem is the Blu Ray player. It is a Samsung 3d player. I have a Samsung Smart TV and a Yamaha Receiver.
So I had the Blu Ray connected and we were watching the Last Jedi. Both fell asleep on the sofa. So the next day the player won’t boot up on screen. However, when I connect it straight to the HDMI in the back of the tv there are no problems works fine. Doing a bit of reading it appears to be a problem with the HDMI handshake. Looking again with it plugged into the receiver the load screen boots and then just a blank screen.
Quick little weekend project.
I got Sam a refurbished Dell OptiPlex 780 computer a couple of years ago to go in her room. Just needed something basic as she mostly just uses the internet. It has 120gb hard drive and 2gb of ram. Paid less than £100.
Problem is it takes an age to boot and just isn’t that responsive.
