Looking sharp!
Love the way that base is starting to look. Steel and timber work fits very nicely with the theme. Top marks that fella

Not far from the finish line now. Bit more weathering to the landing pad and finish the base that the landing pad will sit on and wire up the wing an she's all done











That's all I have for now but I shall be working on it over Sunday through to Tuesday and hopefully it'll be 99% fiished by then
As always, thank for looking

Nice work - where did you get the base? Scratch?

Default Re: A nude Dragonfly

Thanks guys The base is scratch build

So, time for one last WIP update I think before it's finished. I was struggling with ideas on what to do with the ground work until I came across some Tamiya textured surface mats which really worked well here. They're made of card but feel a bit rubbery on the top which works well to help hold models to the base.
So now I have all 3 elements on one display: wood, metal and stone

I am still to rig the wings up with some wires which ought to be interesting and finalise the way in which I will get power to the base - something I am still struggling to come up with a suitable plan with. I could just put a battery underneath but then it would literally be just that and ruin the overall look of the base. I'm looking at building a small metal crate to hold a switch and a power socket for mains power. It seems a little bit of over kill to run this off mains, but it would mean I don't have to find a way to hide a 9V battery in such a way that I make it changeable. Anyway, I'm sure I will come up with something in keeping with this

I added a few oil drops (dark wash) to the landing pad to make it look a little more used.

So, enough talking, time for pics:











Well, the next time I update this, it should be the finished product!
As always, thanks for looking in and thank you for the appreciation
Kind regards
Si

Gorgeous work!

Wait- So the base (legs) are plastic with metalizer paint? What wood did you use for the platform?
And what are the "hooks" around the base? Looks like stringers for safety netting...?

The legs are cut down telegraph poles from a Miniart set, the frame is just Evergreen H frame and the wood is balsa wood cut into uniform strips. The stair case is also from Miniart. You shall see what the hooks are for soon

I think I know what the 'hooks' are for and if so, this is going to look seriously nice!

Default Re: A nude Dragonfly

While I had the camera out I took some night shots of the completed base etc. For those of you who wondered what those protrusions on the sides of the landing pad were, now you shall see:














These will likely be the only lit shots I take as I broke the socket getting the plug in It'll require major surgery to fix it which I can't be bothered doing right now. It'll be fixed for Expo next year though


Day light pictures to be taken over the upcoming weekend sorry
Thanks for looking
Si
