I am going to hijack my thread a bit now, I was hunting around my box of figures today, to see if I had anything I could use with the phantom I'm going to build, and I came across this, it's a vallejo paint bottle sculpted to look like a little monster, it has a load of teeth to go in the mouth and a choice of tongues , it will be a nice fun little thing to do !

Another interesting one was this terminator figure

It's cast in white metal, in 54mm or 1/32 scale in old money

And this one is neo from the matrix, in full on climb up the wall Uzi blazing pose

I do remember starting this, it was around the time I got back into the hobby, I got no further than this. I really should have a go at finishing it

And I found this little fella In The box too, it's a tiny baby and he appears to be holding a really battered teddy bear, I have no idea who made this or where it's from, I don't think it's games workshop, it's very well sculpted but tiny

Here's teddy, he's all sewn together like Frankenstein

And this I got from modelzone in the closing down sale for 20 quid, it's a 1/72 scale flying saucer from the movie forbidden planet
It has some figures with it including Robby the robot and the ID monster, I doubt I will ever build it the diameter of the completed model is 28 inches lol, it's like a dustbin lid

I found quite a few interesting bits and bobs , but I'll save them For another time
And finally as the sun was shining bright in Wales today I took a summer selfie ! I didn't realise until I took this pic, that I am Heisenberg lol
I am now going to turn the cellar into a meth lab lol, now where's Pinkman !

Now you've done it Simon ! I am going to give it a go, I went off and found this pic as soon as I saw your comment, I don't know when I will get it done but I will start looking for bits and bobs to scratch the boat as soon as I can, and thank you for the kind comments mate, I am very happy you like what I do Pete

Sorry Pete my bad. [smile]
       keep looking at the skin tone on the head section and inside the mouth it is absolutely spot on.

The sculpt of the shark is spot on to this pic, I have to have a go at it, it shouldn't be too difficult to just make that section of the deck, the wood I used for the falke diorama will be ideal as it's easy to work with and cheap as chips, I am really pleased you suggested the idea, I would never have thought of it !

Back to the shark ! I sanded back the filler, and put a thick coat of surfacer 500 over it to smooth it out a bit, this is the result after sanding

I am now going to leave the hole as it is and use the kit stand for the time being, I will not be doing the display I had in mind now, so I can try and do the Jaws diorama with the other head

If you zoom in you can see that the surface is not perfect, only the primer will show me how bad or not it really is. The skin of a great white is a mass of lumps bumps and scars so I. Not too worried about making it perfect

A quick blast of primer, it's still wet here so looks a bit shiny at the mo !

Again it's not perfect but I think it will be ok with the colours on it

I left the fins off until now to make it easier to sand the head to body join, but the "wingroot" needed a bit of surfacer

Same for the other side !

Overall the join is not too bad, it looks a little more obvious than it actually is because the seam doesn't have as many coats of primer as the rest due to the sanding, but after I clean the fin seams up I will be spraying it all white, so it should unify everything

Quick update, everything sanded now, and primer on

It's in the mid 20s here today (which believe me is hot for us up here) so ten minutes outside and it's dry enough to spray white

Due to my less than Stellar lighting in the mancave it doesn't look white but I promise it is ! Once this is dry I can get this thing finished
