I've been picking away at this periodically. Here's what I've got so far...

Vulcan Progress

Wow! I can't believe how productive I was in December, and how unproductive I've been in January!

Now that I've got the Vulcan and the Flea the size that I want -- time to paint. Here's a work in progress picture of the Vulcan. Its a start.

The paint scheme is an homage to Ken and Paul, with whom I used to play Battletech...

On the 3DSMAX side, I've been working on some stuff for a friend at work. As a side effect, I'll end up with a Chaparrel and a Hatamoto Chi modeled... Also been working on a new Christmas Ornament. Stay tuned.

More Vulcan Pictures

I put the Vulcan together today and it doesn't look too bad. I think the medium laser (left torso) could have been a bit beefier, some missing fine detail on the head and there's some fixing up to do on the left elbow. The rest seems to be OK.

I've been thinking about scale again. Here's a lineup with a 20 ton FLEA, 20 ton Locust, 40 ton Vulcan and 55 ton Griffin. I think I'm going to try and reprint the FLEA a little smaller (maybe 5%) and the VULCAN could be about as tall as the Griffin (align the tops of their heads).


Thanks to everyone that participated in the 2010 Fourth Axis Christmas Ornament EBAY auctions! And thanks to my good friend Darlene for doing all that gluing, sanding and painting! We'll be back next year with more 2001: A Space Odyssey ornaments for sure!
