Building Eagle Transporter - at 80% Completion

Updates!!!..Space 1999:Eagle Transporter

Sorry for the delay, got caught up with my "make a living" job, and only a few days ago got the chance to sit back and enjoy the hobby... and can continue with this Eagle Transporter.

This is where i'm at as of last night, all the parts painted and also applied a coat of Future as a preparation to decal this spaceship.

Windows 7 :The trust relationship between this workstation and primary domain failed

Just thought i add & share something that i found at work the other day.

It seems that Windows 7 have an issue with adding user to the Domain.
It will prompt an error like below:

The trust relationship between this workstation and primary domain failed...

when this happened you'll not be able to add the user from Domain to PC.

Actually there a hot fix for it issued by Microsoft..

You can read all about it here and then Request the fix, the link and password for the download will be emailed to you in a few second.

here is the link to the Hotfix readme Click ME!!
I also already added the link to my APPs TIPs pages for easy reference later.

1. Install the hotfix (it just a small download),
2. restart
3. add the user as usual from the domain

Hope this helps someone out there.

Building the famous RMS Titanic...

"You jump, i jump" 
-- Perhaps one of the most famous sentences uttered in the whole 1997 movie Titanic by James Cameron.

Another build from me since my last build (the Space 1999: Eagle Transporter) is about to be completed soon.

This time around, i'll be building the famous RMS Titanic ship in 1/400 scale (about 2.3 feet long). This is the first ship build for me in this humongous scale. Dunno if i'm up to the challenge since this is a big plunge for me in ship modelling.

I bought this kit a few years back together with an Eduard PE to complement the ship detailing. And this build i target it to be completed by March 26, 2011. Overly ambitious? yes.. since my track record of building anything usually will take around 2-3 months to finish, but i'll try my very best o get ti competed in the time-frame. allocated.

On to the photos...The box art.

Building Eagle Transporter from SPACE 1999 series

 Building Eagle Transporter from SPACE 1999 series

For those that lived in the 70's and 80's sure remember this classic TV Series; SPACE:1999.
read the Detail on Wiki...

in conjunction with another Group Build schedule in March 2011 in KL, i'll build another model just for the GB.

here is the box art... thanks to a fellow modeller - Landyshah@SMM for the photos.
and that is how the Eagle Transporter looks like in the TV Series.

For me this is a true design of a Spaceship :D

first order of business (after washing the plastic with dish soap to remove the moulding oil & dirt), is to cut the frame out.. since this ship suppose to have this frame exposed and showing the inside of it.

Modelling RAF Tornado Gr1 - Desert Storm - "Promodeller Wash!! "

I already can see the finish line for this "Tonka" (another name for Tornado) and its has been a very interesting progress...

Today we'll look at "wash", essentially i use was to make the panel-lines more visible and also to add some of the dirtiness of the aircraft, as real aircraft get really dirty in operation.

Here is the before and after photo of the was application.

Note from above how the panel-lines more "visible" after the application of the wash.

This Promodeller wash is very easy to use, all i need just to make sure the surface already being Gloss coat to make sure that the Wash will flow nicely into the panel-lines and will make cleaning the excess wash easier.

Modelling RAF Tornado Gr1 - Desert Storm - "Decal Completed... "

Sorry for the lack of updates.

The decal was completed a few nights ago and below is the finished product for the decal stage.

I only post the photos of the decal near the nose of the Tornado, since this is where the most decal is located..

As i mentioned before, the decal is a bit thick and a few layers of Future Floor Polish was used to make the decal stay on the kit... pretty tedious job.
