I'd rather have something that I can buy and have, electronic or otherwise.

Well, that's that then. All painted up and ready to go.

Here's another project that started life as an excess-putty-monster, and now has morphed into a mixing-up-putty-on-purpose-monster. The eyeball is a 12mm ball bearing I had lying around, one of a bajillion I salvaged from a c...

The fuselage of my 1:300 scale BE2c is pretty much complete. The majority of it is carved from a piece of clear 2mm acrylic, which is quite good for this sort of work because it's pretty hard, and takes good sharp facets. Sof...

Gaaaaaah.... I think I actually HATE Picasa. Really, really hate it. As a desktop image file management system, it sucks dead donkey dick. It pretty much ignores the existing file system in favour of its own arcane cataloguing system, and if it decides not to display a folder... well, good luck ever adding it until it mysteriously decides, at some future time, that you're worthy to have access to it. Or not, as the case may be.

For some reason, I became overcome with an uncontrollable urge* to build a 1:300 scale model of a BE2c (that's a very slow, very stable British WW1 aeroplane, for those who don't know).

Just on the off-chance that somebody else might be suffering from similar insanity, here's a link to a PDF I made with 1:72 3-view drawings of the BE2c-d and BE2e, plus size/cutting templates in 1:72, 1:144, 1:288 and 1:300 scales.

* I suspect orbital mind-control lasers at work again.
