    Queens of Comedy. Apparently I was watching it at the exact same time you were. Chris Rock is on tonight at 10.

    "Earlier tonight"?! Good Lord, man! What time did you post that, 2AM?

    Funny how when you show us a picture, instead of paying attention to the main theme of the pic, we're freakishly inspecting everything in the background -_^ Ooo, look! It's a glimpse into another person's house! Must inspect!!!

    I keep vampire hours since my real job is from 4 pm til 4 am (3 or 4 nights a week) so I don't usually turn in until 7 or 8 am!

    The plane will be painted up like a battered warplane with some Iron Maiden oriented decoration. I'm hunting around for a 1/40th scale pilot to go in the cockpit. The hard part will be to not go bugeyed trying to sculpt a 1/40th scale zombie head and hands!

    Wanna see something scary? Here's ,my "work area" before the new desk and storage rack:

    here is a shot of my work desk:

    [img]http://home.**********.com/users/scottychaos/desk.jpg[/img]

    I just went to Home Depot and got a big slab of board,
    and attached it at a 90degree angle to my computer desk..
    making an angled desk..works great!
    on the desk is my latest project under construction.
    a live-steam G gauge locomotive.



    more on the locomotive, if anyone is interested:

    Hey Scotty that's a sweet train! Is it scratchbuilt with styrene and brass or is it a working kit that moves and everything?

    thanks Josh,
    its going to be a working live-steam locomotive..
    it is powered by fire and water.
    real steam moves the pistons..just like a full-size steam loco.
    its based on the Accucraft Ruby, a live steam kit.
    here is what it looked like originally, before I started modifying it:

    parts of it are scratch built, other parts I bought.
    its half and half.
    Scot

    Cool to see "kitbashing" is a common term for various modeling communities! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    With that reference pic I can see the awesome amount of work you did-you should post that pic here so people can see how far you took it! Most of my modeling is figure based with the odd styrene kit buildup or whatever so that kinda actual fabricating stuff like that is foreign to me. It looks totally machined! I'd love to see any in progress pics you may have of the construction. How in the world do you cut your brass stock so clean? It's a thing of beauty for sure!

    So there's an actual little water well and flame in there? That's wild, I thought mini trains were always electrical since my uncles was. What's the gauge in the scale key in reference to? Is that the gauge track it will fit on?

    Hey Josh- Nice Work as always, got a real Harryhausen/Frazetta look to the snakeman especially

    You might look into using a fantasy miniature for the Spit pilot, a lot of the "Heroic Scale" stuff is pretty much 1/48 in many respects (I think that kit is 1/48, not too many 1/40 scale kits available IIRC)
    One thing ya might try- I have a whole mess of plastic skeletons from games workshop (I inherited them, a buddy who was into it got out and I ended up with my own techno skeleton army) You could start with a skeleton figure and just build it up a bit- even if you just used the head and arms crossed with a pilot...... either way, full scratch would likely drive ya even more buggy than you already are [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
