FINALLY back to the bench! In anticipation of getting, boxing, shipping, and painting the upcoming Remora kits from Industria Mechanika, Ian McQue and FichtenFoo (me!), I started on the cargo for the two I'm building for Ian and I. Check the link for lots of technique info and pics. Can't wait to get my hands on the kits now... gonna be 2 piles of heaping rusty goodness.

These photos show so much more than the 3D photos. Nice work. -- Russ

I so look forward to seeing this build. Really like the pallets, the spool, and the grating.

Great to see you have cleared the hurdles on this one... and I love that we are going to see two examples out of the gate - nice touch, man!

Now stop reading the forums and get back to the bench  Grin

Thanks guys! Everything's coming along at my typical quick modeling pace. Ian wants a plain black base, but I'm making something more rust-ic. I found this on the Industrial Decay Network Flickr group and immediately wanted to recreate portions of it. So I'm doing a section of steel bridge, a tower of sorts, and some water underneath.

I am really looking forward to seeing how you do these kits as I will want to steal ideas from you . However , I can't work out how three sand channels can be of use to a flying ship ! Or am I being thick ? ( (Anyone else with a smart-arsed comment to my last question please feel free to write it down on a postcard and mail it in).

I just like them for the extra detail, but in the metal I depict them as they could be gang-planks, temp barriers, traction on deck, in port, etc... Whatever one can cobble together is the theme in Ian's series anyway. As for me... I just needed more detailish crap to greeblie up the deck.  Cheesy

Obviously you are too young or were too isolated in the English hinterland, to recall the Yes album cover with the floating-in-air islands/pieces of land. The sand rails are needed in case the Remora gets beached on one of those....or they can use it as a gang-plank to one of those, when they go look for the thong clad rebel vixens.

How funny... I had that bookmarked apparently and must have forgotten about it. I went to bookmark it... again I guess and saw I already had it. Thanks for the reminder... great stuff in there!

  Yes were the first group that I took any interest in back in 1973/4 ( before you were born?) , so I am very familiar with their album covers by Roger Dean . And you are right they could be of use in such situations and  would be a great idea for a diorama  . I think I'll dig out my old albums and see how it could be done .

... wasn't YES the band with Rick Wakeman on Keyboards, who left the band 5 (or 6?) times for re-entering again every time a few months/years later  ... ? Was more listening i. e. to Grand Funk Railroad then ...  Wink

  Yes it was. I worked at his house in 1984 and drove my old boss to one of his weddings . Haven't a clue how many times he has been married .
