From Ice cream to Jules Verne
« on: June 21, 2018, 03:13:22 PM »
First up is Royal Models, Ice Cream Time which I was asked to build, paint then review by a certain Mr Dewar. I must say the subject if the model interested me a boy eating an ice creamon what apoears to be a naval mine was just different enough for me to have a go at it. The figure is 1/35 and wonderfully detailed. The second onto my bench (well box lid on my knee, no fancy workshop for me oh no) was pegasus hobbies 1/144 nautillus model kit, having built a number of their kitsand seeing finished versions at shows I knew this was hoing to bea great buid and it was, everything fit nicely and even the addition of pesky etched brass couldnt spoil the build for me. Any way heres the pictures...

Hi Wayne,

Great looking models. For me I like the 'Boy on the Mine'. It somehow joins the 'Innocence of youth with the brutality of War' seamlessly.

A nice subject in its own right. Love the Nautilus too, I've seen these built up and you have done a cracking job!


What next from the 'Otherworld79 Stable'.....?


I only know it will be good....


Cheers,
Bigkev
