Polar Bear WIP 10, PB unite!

Thanks guys, not much modeling done until tonight...
I added the power cable to the main laser arm, added welds to each upper arm (bit hard to see) and with extra bondite, added a bulge to the laser. Also drilled and added a periscope on the top bulge.

Thanks to Agent L for the AFS Night Stalker, I fixed up the left manipulator to my second PB.
Found a perfect part for the missile, the end of a pen (seen in the picture)

I plan to attach/hand a snow board to the PB, roughly this size... What do you guys think?

Again, the final layout of the trio...

I hope to finish this for the Oct 11 PLAMO meet, together with the Falke... :)

Daddy Falke WIP 2

I finally cleaned up the seamlines and did first coat of primer, then cleaned up more seamlines which showed up.
This is how it looks like after the second coat of primer (for the cleaned up portions)
This is so nice and sexy that I am tempted to keep it just primed. :D

Here's a shot Daddy and Baby together...

Shipment 16

After a long wait, shipment 16 is in... Some of the stuff is still stuck in Japan though...
Let my kid Ashley have a go at taking out the newpaper padding...

blog down?!

Got me a shock today, my blog was disabled temporarily due to my Google account being disabled.
Just logged in now and everything is fine again...
Super strange...

More WIP updates soon!

Polar Bear WIP 9 & Falke WIP 1

I know I know, its been a while since I updated my WIP. But I have not been lazy (real lazy anyways). :)

I've sanded down all the seamlines and rough patches on the Hard boiled Polar Bear and also started gluing and sanding the Falke.
Now don't let the low number of parts cheat you, many of them need sanding and the hardest part for me was to glue the two halves together. I did it the way taught by viper1972 in one of the PLAMO videos, using the Tamiya extra thin cement to glue it bit by bit, all the while trying to align the joints... Thanks viper!

I also had problems with the front part of the cockpit, you can see the bondite I used to putty up the joints. I had to sand and sand and also use sandpaper with tweezer to sand the sides of the cockpit... Now to prime it!
