Great to see you firing on all cylinders again Ted !

I'm liking the modifications and added details a lot mate, and am really keen to see what you have planned for your display idea.

Those little bits and bobs that get saved and then get given a new lease of life on other models are called greeblies

That engine turned out very nice. Glad it will be seen at the end. And very creative work on the little truck.

Pete, Fabian, and Perry,
Your comments are very welcome and it gives me extra Mojo to store away for those times when it seems to leak out and disappear. with some RX from my doctor, a "Nettie pot", and tons of tissues, the sinus infection seems to be moving out? feeling much better.

UNIT 7 + a Dr. appointment [podiatrist today], and then leaving early yesterday PM to go with GF to the market, the day was fragmented, yet I had a great time getting closer to finishing the "ESCI Aircraft Support Group" tractor conversion to an aircraft carrier moto tug---WHEW!!!!

Well, that's my excuse for just now getting the WIP updated from yesterday. Yes, it was moto tug all the way. small parts, more chopping and sanding, and I finally got the pesty driver controls in place. I needed kicker for those parts and a brand new solution I bought DOES NOT WORK!. Grrrrr.......taking it back to the hobby shop later this week.

here are some montages and the final side view will be matched with the "inspiration image" once again. hope you enjoy. I am more than ready to paint this moto tug project and get it out of the way.











NOT MY PICTURE   NOT MY PICTURE   NOT MY PICTURE


Just for comparison, here is an image of a different boxing of the ESCI "Aircraft Support Group" kit. The box art is different and you can see a better image of the tractor [?]. It took a bit of thinking to assure myself that I could convert that to a more moto tug style but I am glad I took a shot at it. saved me some $$$!

Thank you Steven. I like to do the WIP threads. Glad you enjoy.

Yesterday
...............I'm behind. Life + hobby busy busy. Finally got the moto tug conversion finished and some primer [Vallego Grey Primer] applied. Looks better in terms of continuity at least. Plenty of rough spots and the primer highlights them all. I created some damage to the push plate and fenders before primer.

I also separated all the parts of the cowl carefully except for one section, so my solution was to remove that section and make it part of the Diorama maintenance element. I have the panel and other cowl piece to show in the diorama.

Last work was to RE-AB all of the parts of the Corsair that needed the internal green. Still not the exact right color but what you see is what you get. final answer!







one more time, a photo of my inspiration for the conversion from "tractor" to moto tub

Thanks Neil! it does represent a lot of time and effort. I really should have bought the AM kit that had the moto tug, driver, loaders [ammo] and the pilots group. I saw the maintenance group first and bought them Using my AM "budget". I wanted a tug so the conversion scratchbuild tug was the option I went with.

should have bought this?:



But saw this first and bought it:



so I "borrowed" some items from this kit [I have 2 of these]:



converting the tractor to moto tug and using the flat trailer + the mechanics and possibly 3 figures from the aircraft support group should give me plenty to work with in terms of diorama options? that's a long explanation but that's the how what when where of my choices.

Thanks Paul! I did the same thing for 8 years in a photography hobby. Sometimes it was worth it [see below] and I hope it pans out in scale modeling becasue I am hooked on that style of work. I just hope to do it better and better.



Sarah is in a background that I made using old dress patterns I fastened to the wall and floor and a fashion I made. I hired a MU/HS to do her makeup/hairstyle.It took me several days and a bit of $$$ to do a 30 minute shoot. The patterns were very delicate and had to be carefully glued to each other but NOT to the wall to keep them still as the model moved through various poses. go figure. I did all of my own sets/props/and many fashions as well. I think I have a control issue??

I like that!.....most people just think I am nuts-LOL. I showed my GF my P-38 and she said, "That really looks Real"--the spinning props and rocket firing. I almost fainted. She usually says,"That's really cute honey, what is it?"
