Welcome to Large Scale Modeller: The home of the large scale military model builder. 

Sir Desmond Glazebrook

Clearing my "Shelf of doom".

Recommended Posts

The 1st model tackled is the excellent Tamiya M6A1 Seiran float plane. This build began in 1999. I have now painted the trolley.  I hope to apply camouflage over the coming weekend.

Following this build I will attempt to end my entire SHELF OF DOOOOM! Mostly 1/48 scale models and a few 1/32 models.

That trolley looks excellent!   The wood is done very nicely!

Thanks Bill. I have been hesitant until my brain worked properly. Obviously an ongoing work. 1st I need to recognise that the organ in my head ever worked normally at all. I fear my quest will end in tears. :D

Hi guys. This little Spitfire is for a young student. I spent quite some time on it. I have my other work to complete so want to get this done. I used MRP RAF dark green and brown. It doesn't look right. I was tempted to strip it and use GSI paint instead. However I can't justify the time. The boy won't know or care.

However......???

Anyway his mum told me he is too lazy to build it. :D

I used a black base. I think this is where it all went wrong. Knowing me, I will probably strip it and invest in a decal sheet.

We shall see.

Hi Dale. colours look ok other than the dark green which looks a bit 'olive' in the photos but that may just be how it appears on screen.

The ability to 'live with' things is always a hard one. Hope the kid likes it anyway.

After the teeny weeny Spitfire it was a day for my stuff. I set the alarm for 4.50 AM.  I got up and had breaky, Coke Zero and a leftover slice of pizza, and bingo bango i began. I have been painting and sanding until just now, 5.31 PM. I painted gear bays and cockpits for a 1/48 Me 262, F-84, Aichi Seiran and 1/32 Dauntless. 12 hours solid. I even forgot to shower.

No, I don't stink.

(Not much anyway)

Here's the Seiran with my testing a new way to weather. The AC is painted top bottom but I have only weatherd the top and sides. Not complete but I ran out of time. I am using my AK pencil set for the first time and pastels. Tell me what you think.

I have been very busy over the last two days. I dug out the Ki-46 I began a couple of years ago. Models worked on are, Ki-46, Seiran, Thunderjet, Me 262.

I have also been working on my lovely Trumpeter 1/32 SBD3. 

Here is where I am now.

My life is now happier than it has been in years. This morning I awoke early to put some paint on my Dinah. I now go to my studio to play drums for 7 hours. Then return home to continue modelling. I have no complaints and consider myself very lucky. :)

The Dinah at this early stage in her paint job.
