Well I will start the ball rolling.

This is the IJN Tama by Tamiya in 1/700 built out of the box except for some minor rigging. Painted using Tamiya acrylic and WEM Linoleum.
The sea base was made using Vallejo water effects Pacific blue.

Heres my entry for the MOM. It is a 1/6 vinyl figure of Piccard as Locutus of Borg. This was a speedy build and took me two weeks to completly finish including the base i fabricated for him. Spent the majority of time waiting for oil paints to dry so i could continue.

Here is my entry for this months comp. It the Andrea Miniatures white metal 54mm "The Buccaneer" aka Captain Jack sparrow from the film Pirates of the Caribbean. The kit was built oob and painted entirely with acrylics the water was made from plaster of paris and also painted with acrylics.







Good luck to all that have entered

I would upload to the gallery but all I get is the following error message: You are allowed a maximum of 5242880 bytes of diskspace. If you would like to upload more images, please delete some of your older images and/or optimize your images using lower quality jpg settings before uploading. I've put a post in the network talk thread as it seems that my account as been chopped from 25Mb down to 5Mb for some reason. But I thought that the MoM galleries were unlimited on space?

Well even after a clear out of my galleries i still have no room to upload the image into the MOM gallery so Camogirl has volunteered to upload it on my behalf. So don't panic and think that Sam is edging her bets by putting in two entries

My entry this month, Hasegawa's 1/48 Ju87B-Trop.
Built OOB except for cutting off and replacing the aileron and flap actuating mechanisms, PE seat belts and rear gun vane sight and antenna wire from invisable mending thread with white glue insulators.
Camo was freehand airbrushed and the decals are from the kit. Washed using artist oil colour and white spirit.
