The Workbench – now with video

As we all go into social distancing, it’s time to get back to the workbench.

I’ve made a couple of videos already, and I’m likely to make more. The exact timetable will be worked out as I go along, but, for now, some timelapse I shot over the last two weekends.

1- Putting some figures together, so I can practice figure painting-

2- Diving into the big box of dismantled Gundam I won on eBay, and seeing how many I can put back together-

More coming soon!


The Workbench – Atomic Gas

I’ve got behind on the workbench reports. Atomic Gas was completed a while ago, but I’m only now writing it up.

Atomic Gas

This little service station is a model from Sarissa Precision┬áthat I picked up at the Britcon show in Manchester last year. It’s my first laser cut wood kit (if you don’t count the bed I got the same day), and I’m impressed.

I went overboard with the weathering and debris, but it is meant to be a post apocalyptic location, after all. The transfers came from a bunch of locations- some were old bus advertising from my Dad’s model railway stash, others were sold for nail art, and the graffiti comes from a Judge Dredd game, and my own designs.

Now I need a post apocalyptic game to play, so I can use this location.
