Hello again all,
I tried to continue on the previous post but the search function is not working, I'd appreciate it if someone can link to it.

Here they are as promised my friends ….. I had to add small flt bases to them as they were wobbling over.
Sandstone, Buff, Carmine Oil colour diluted with non stink type W&N turp wash turns the sandstone colour to a pinkish hue, W&N ultramarine . Windshields made with Pearlescent paint + Ultramarine…. The base was done in cracked sandstone then given a wash of carmine.

They look great! Very ‘natural' outgrowth from the Serpentia who built and use them. Terrific paint job. And I love the doors on the back.

They look great.

Very nice! Would love to see pics before paint if you have them.

zrunelord04 Feb 2018 11:59 a.m. PST

Thanks all for the praise.

Ragbones, you are right. I tried to reason the logic a snakeman would use to build a vehicle.

Look at the build pictures on the blog. Link is above. You'll see how easy they are to do.The pipe is a washing machine ( if I'm not mistaken ) drain. I chose it specifically for the internal "ribs" texture….

Note to Cacique Dan – these " ribs " might be useful to create impressions for walls.

Grizzly, easily solved my friend,clik on the link above & you'll have all the pics you need & more.

My modeling and painting skills have pretty much dried up, but I am still pretty good at research.

I truly love your work. Card stock and found objects were some of my favorite materials when I had better hands and eyes.

I really like it. Your work has such a great look to it, very unique. Sort of reminds me of the Moebius comics from way back in the day. Good stuff!

zrunelord05 Feb 2018 12:22 p.m. PST

You're the man Dyehard ,that's the one :) thanks
I'm truly sorry that you can't build any more my friend, I will do my best to post more & more then…..

Indeed DSG, glad you them ,Moebius, Chris Foss & others like them were some of my favourites which I grew up with.
Plus 2000AD,Gundam,MazingaZ,Patlabor etc etc…..
You brought back loads of good memories
