Default Re: Moonbase Alpha Laser Tanks...ALL THREE!

Hey George! Glad to see you finally jumped in. Welcome to RI! Of COURSE you can count on help here.

Ok folks, Got one practically finished, but better yet, any others won't take NEAR as long 'cause I got templates made! Hopefully when others join me here, I'll be able to answer the questions now and can help speed others along!

This one is ready for some painting and finish detailing. The only thing left is to make a small circular detail covered in kit parts which fits up INSIDE the top of the dome under that outside white cap.

Y'all see anything that don't look right, start telling me something! Won't be long it'll be too late to correct.

As always, any comments AT ALL will be welcomed.

Rob.

Default Re: Moonbase Alpha Laser Tanks...ALL THREE!

Now, it's ALSO time to start showing some of what was used for this one, especially things that may not readily be available in your 'normal' greebly piles.

Here's what was originally used on all three laser tanks as the shaft holding each laser. It is the axle from the very rare Tamiya JagDpanther that the deck and a couple of the parts on that small rear deck (with the circles) all come in. It's always said that it's just bent aluminum strip, but there may be more involved than just that because all three use these modified in some way or other.

These are made from brass AND metal.

Rob.

Thank you Chris! I think it's coming out pretty nice myself, but y'all all know I'm biased here, so SPEAK UP if y'all notice anything.

ANYBODY! You won't hurt my feelings AT ALL if it helps me correct something.

You are on "positive track" Rob.

Make sure you weather them accordingly. I have seen these three studio miniatures in the flesh and they were very dusty looking.


Keep it up mate. Brilliant.

Samples always welcome..............

Default Re: Moonbase Alpha Laser Tanks...ALL THREE!

Hey Chris. From those pictures you posted awhile back right? I really think alot of THAT dirt is from years of neglect, although I do know there are many little subtle markings and such that are suppose to be there.

I have some of the absolute best pictures of these possible. They came from our mutual friend BEFORE they left his shed just after he completed them. He didn't have very many (you and I both know he didn't spend alot of time back then taking pictures), but I do have a couple of each tank.

Here's a question for ya' Chris, having actually SEEN the originals....

That forked laser mount looks too tall on mine don't it? I was completely serious here guys when I said SPEAK UP. How y'all gonna hurt my feelings. I ain't GOT none.

Rob.

Default Re: Moonbase Alpha Laser Tanks...ALL THREE!

With All Three being built. Has anyone thought about adding figures? I know I would like to add figures to my C.M Laser Tank build. Since it is in 1/24 scale. I guess the figures should be 1/24, is that right? Anyone know of a source of Good type of figures that could be used?

Let me know please.

Thanks In advance

George

Default Re: Moonbase Alpha Laser Tanks...ALL THREE!

The figures that WERE used on everything Space:1999 that I know of are from the 1/24 scale Revell Gemini Space Capsule. Two of the original tanks HAD pilots. They were the 1/24 Revell Gemini pilots as usual. The two that had pilots were the Flat-Top and Dome-Type tanks, BOTH clearly visable through the canopies....of course.

The 44" Eagle had two Revell 1/24 pilots with their legs hacked off at the hips in the CM.

The 1/24 scale Moonbuggy had a Revell 1/24 pilot seated in it when it got used.

I would suggest that you CAN'T go wrong with 1/24 Revell Gemini pilots on ANYTHING 1/24 scale you build from Space:1999.

They'll be right at home!

Now, that ain't really saying much because you practically can't BUILD Space:1999 with using the Revell Gemini Space Capsule...BOTH 1/24 and 1/48.

Rob.

Default Re: Moonbase Alpha Laser Tanks...ALL THREE!

Ok guys.

The fork was not only too tall, but there ended up being more than one thing changed. I ended up at 25 MM X 25 MM X 8 MM. This thing is an exact square! Had several TOP MEN help me figure out this one, but I really think it looks practically the way it's suppose too. Remember what I mentioned about it "looking" like it was talller than it was wide? Look at it now and you can see that mine looks that way too now and it is perfectly square. It doesn't take much to fool ya' with some of this, I'll give it that. Ended up working on this for several hours now, but I think I'll leave it alone.....unless y'all see something else?

Gun fixed, so I moved on to a small detail that gets mounted inside the roof of the canopy. It's a small circle of styrene which resembles an "Overhead Console". It takes 5 kit parts to make this small 34.5 MM diameter circle!

Folks, I know I've been silent for too long here, but I'm having a VERY tough time trying to figure out just how to include the rotating and elevating turret.

Sean C or Dave.....if y'all figure something out, I need to be "clued" in??
