July Meeting this Saturday (July 02 2016)

This month is the Annual General Meeting of the MoB. If, like me, you forgot to pay and update your membership last month these must be paid before the AGM to vote or stand for office. After the AGM, there’ll be the usual club business, bluster and modelling talk. Come along and take part in the business of the club and support your local Sheriff.

Don’t forget to visit the club’s Facebook page (thanks Dominic Mishka for setting that up) to see what is going on during the month.

Visitors are always welcome at our meetings. Bring along whatever you are working on, or nothing at all, and enjoy the company of the group.

Note that the Kohinoor Community Centre is at the corner of Sebastopol Street and Errard Street in Ballarat – check the map on the right side of the page for further instructions.

Modelling Battle Damage

Modelling Battle Damage

Click the image to head back to the reference site

Recently while tooling around the internet looking for something else I came upon this outstanding conversion made to a Fine Molds 1/72nd scale X-Wing from the Star Wars universe.

While the work on the open panels is brilliant, what really caught my eye was the battle damage done to the lower left X wing. Which you’ll find if you head over to the referring website – or click on the image to the left.

And while the work is outstanding, the modeller who came up with the means to create the battle damage, from the Turkish chapter of the IPMS has a great pictorial post about how they created the original of the battle damage on another Fine Molds kit.

If you don’t speak Turkish, you are forgiven as I don’t either, but I got a masterclass in making broken bits of space and aircraft.So well worth taking a look at and learning from.
