Nearing completion on the Split Suit

Well, my Polar Bear split suit diorama is coming along nicely. Been working on the engineer and some of the equipment, and things are slowly nearing completion.

Here's some pics:

Gallery Links Added

I have added links to my model galleries. Bear with me on this one, as they are linked through to my old web site and need to be reorganised.

Split Polar Bear Quick Update

Just a quick update, I've finished the new camo and have gone over with a fine grade sandpaper to simulated scuffing and wear.

Removed all the cabling, as I plan to replace these with some better ones I recently picked up and given everything a gloss coat ready for decals.

No pics yet, it looks really weird with the gloss coat, so I'll wait until I dullcote it.

SFM:uk Group Build 2008

The 2008 SFM:uk Group Build is currently going strong.

Several of us are using the WAVE 1/20 kit of the AFS-CD Type Polar Bear from the Ma.K. universe as the base of the build.

The rules are simple: do anything you like with the kit!

I chose to create a "split suit" - basically modifying the kit to represent a suit in maintenance mode, opened up to show the inner workings and pilot. This will eventually be shown in a diorama of a maintenance bay of some kind.

Anyway, enough of the talk, this is where I am currently up to with the split suit:

Still lots to do and not much time left to do it in! Wish me luck!

More information and a build diary for this can be found over at SFM:uk.
