If you missed January’s meet, you missed a presentation by Jeremy Kennedy about how to mold and create copies of your small parts quickly and cheaply without using expensive resins. All you need is “Blue Stuff”, some Milliput and some boiling hot water.
Watch the entire presentation below.
PSM’s James Steel has given us a new video of his latest work at Our Home and Miniature Land. Great work as always.
Wolf Karalus completed this gorgeous kit back in May. It’s a Mirage 1/700 Sep submarine. As always, stellar work from Wolf!
PSM member James Steele has completed another one of his fantastic lighted police cruisers.
PSM member Wolfgang Karalus just sent in these great pictures of his latest project. A 1:72 Novo kit of a Percival Proctor VI sold to Hudson’s Bay 1946. The floats, dock, and cockpit details were all scratch built! Enjoy!
This project was rather special to PSM member Jeremy Kennedy. His father has been restoring a 1968 Mercury Cougar for many years, and finally got it on the road last year. Jeremy wanted to create a nice display piece to give to his Dad for Christmas. Jeremy used a 1:18 die cast Sunstar 1968 Cougar as a base, but it required heavy customization. For starters, the “real” car was a hard top, but the die cast was a rag top. So it was taken down to bare metal, grinded, and wet sanded smooth. Many imperfections in the casting were fixed and resculpted. The original car was also HEAVILY customized from stock. A new dashboard, new shifter, different engine, new door panels, etc. The list went on.
Jeremy scratchbuilt a new dashboard and centre console. Resculpted the floor panels. He used black flocking powder to recreate the interior carpet. He even tried to lightly customize the engine area to match his father’s car.
The part that really shines is the paint job on the body. Jeremy had a local Ford dealership match the paint code, and painted it in their paint shop, and even gave it a nice clear coat.
Custom decals were made for license plates and instrument decals.
It was finally given to his father on Christmas.
Wolf’s been patiently waiting for us to upload these fine pics of one of his latest creations.
