Bedbug Mine

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

Done a bit more with the control stuff - plasticard, paper clip wire, a couple of small beads and some resin bits...

Another view, the battery box lid is removable to allow access to mounting screw on the Tenshodo bogie, and to give room for some ballast weight.

Grrr, damn pooter. Anyhoo, a ctrl-alt-del later we have another piccy..

The scary bits are still to come, painting and making a driver (I'll add a seat when doing the driver, that way it can be made to fit). I might try sculpting from scratch but I do have some people parts in the bit box so may be able to put something together from them. Some details like lights still to add but I think the next stage is probably to paint the main assembly...

Ian,
That looks very impressive. I'm sure you will manage to manufacture a convincing driver to manage the controls.

Cheers

Beautiful work as usual. There is enough space in that thing to easily hold a receiver and battery for radio.
