    It's been a while since I have done any papermodelling, but I felt it was time to make a return. Things have been mulling around in my head as to what to work on. I know I have a large scale Stardestroyer to finish someday, and will do more work on Warhammer vehicles .... but I wanted something else to work on...and this was it!

    There is a whole range of stuff I can work on here, none of which I have seen done before. Everything from a Judge Dredd Lawmaster bike through to RoBusters mechs and spaceships from the VC's, Dan Dare etc. Masses of material and some varied projects.

    First to be built, though, will be the VC's spacecraft. It's a design I loved since I was a kid, and always wanted to build a model of it. Now I will!

    Pictures to follow as things get going :)

    For those old agers ( like me ) way back 2000ad ran a cartoon strip about a near future war with aliens ( Geeks) invading earth. The earth forces were fighting a defensive battle. One of the ships had a misfit bunch of battle hardened veterans who called themselves the VC's ....Vacuum Cleaners!

    It ran from issue 140 through to 175, and initially had some very good artwork . I loved the shi pdesign, and wanted to build it. Wikipedia has a summary ..just do a search for 2000ad VC and google willo find it for you :thumb:.

    Here's a picture :

    OK...3D model is now complete, and the texturing has begun. Soon as I get a chance I will post some pictures of the progress. Once she is textured, I will start the unfolding process.

    Texturing is going well...but not as fast as I would like. Stiull..happy with the result! The green colour I chose from a colour cover which showed the whole lot as a sort of olive drab colour. Looks Ok to me

    Any progress on this? I used to get 2000ad every week so I know there is a wealth of kits in there.

    I've never had an interest in 2000ad, but that ship is remarkable! Any progress, Flare?






    Also,



    WHERE'S MY STAR DESTROYER?!

    I'd love to see the ABC Robot as a paper model. Someone started on it a couple of years ago, but I never heard if it being finished. Anything Judge Dredd would be cool!

    Oh, I'm so looking forward to this! 2000AD has been a big part of my life and the V.C.s were an early favourite.

    Looking real good so far!

    The VC's Armour was another great bit of kit too.
