I will sort my address out later for you, and pm you.

So, I have purchased some figures to be heavily adapted. They are 1/35 scale and are 5.25cm tall or a hair's width over 2 inches tall. Does that sound like it would work in your model, Bob?
I'm on it! They are all standing figures so, I am having to adapt two of them to a sitting position. I will leave their lower legs on and you can cut them to fit if you need to!
That should be interesting! At the very least, it'll be miles beyond any lame attempt I'd made at making figures!
After tonight my work week ends, so with luck I'll be able to get back to my build tomorrow!
I'm looking forward to your updates!
I will spend the next couple of days on these and then pop them in the post to you when they are done.
Ummmmmmm............hmmmmmmmmm..........let me think abou- Nope
Whaddawe Want? AN UPDATE!
Whenduwe wannit? NOW!
Well, here's my storm Sandy post. I'm not sure if I'll be able to work on this much longer today, as I keep expecting the power to go off at any moment. The winds are picking up all the time, and I don't want to be stuck gluing on some critical piece in a critical place, only to have the lights suddenly disappear and ruining the work, which I'd have to undo later!
Anyhow, I glued the styrene plates onto the bottom of the module.
Now, comes the more difficult task of plating the pointy nose of this thing! You can see why I'd be leery to do that right now!
To all fellow east coast RPF'ers and non-RPF'ers, best of luck through this storm.
Well that is coming along great! I certainly don't envy you the task of sanding that out and putting the curve on thos side wraps
I have nothing as yet to report on my eagle as I am on another little connected project for now.... I'm having great fun though, and when it is finished, maybe it can be posted up here. We'll see......
Keep up the good stuff, Hurricane Bob, and stay safe!
I'm actually looking forward to sanding them smooth. Unfortunately, that'll probably have to wait until the rear half is attached, so I can form the curves more accurately. After I finish up the nose, I'll probably move back to working on the passenger pod for a while. We shall see!
I look forward to your endeavors, as well!
I made some progress and if you want, I will p.m. You some more pics when I have the opportunity.
Well, storm Sandy has passed, and no damage here of note (that I've seen yet, anyway). Still, it was an awfully long day and night, where 24 hours felt more like 48. So with the power still miraculously on , I decided to plow forward and get this phase of my Eagle built!
I cut out pieces of styrene to attach to the nose and "wrap" around it, to complete the skin of the front section. This part wasn't horribly, horribly difficult, but it was horribly, horribly tedious. I'll just let the pictures do the talking!
After this, the surface will be sanded smooth, but as I said, the rear half of the module will have to be attached first, so I can build up its exterior to match the front half.
But man, am I glad this part is behind me!
Astounding and outstanding work! I bet it's as strong as you like and as light as a feather... can you make me one please?
As for making you one..well, that'll me take time to recover from this one! Besides...if I did that, how would you dazzle me with your skill when you put your talents to styrene?
I admit I am feeling more than a little trepidatious about changing my model making mediums....but in for a penny, in for a pound, as they say...I just need to find a project worthy of the materials..
