    Hello John from Portland, Portlandia happens to be my favorite show right now. Is there any truth to that (other than the Parody). It kind of seems like a nice place to live.

    Would like to see some pics of the Duey model. We love pictures!! :)

    Welcome John, great to have you here. I have been to Portland a few times and liked it there. Look forward to seeing some of your builds.

    Hi John, Welcome, I'm pretty new here too. I just moved to the Seattle area from Portland last summer. They are always comparing/contrasting the two places, now I'm experiencing them both. We liked Portland a lot but have to give points to this area for being next to the water.

    One of my favorite all times movies. It could be because of my youth when I first saw it. Regardless, very nice build! :)

    Well I have done more work on the littel guy . I added his arm and side vent .I also added a 3d pc to make the cover on both his sides. I also added the 3d pc on the top . I am trying give this model more dimensions so it looks better . I just need to figure out a nice base for it . So any sugestions ?

    Very cool! I'd think a diorama scene from the movie would be awesome. UHU02's model of this ship is the wrong scale(though it is pretty big) but a section of it could make a good reference for a diorama.

    Your going to be making a full size one pretty soon I imagine. The texturing and 3D feet really make the model "POP". Very nice! Kid of keeps the movie alive too. :)

    YOU know I was laying awake during my nap before work tonight thinking about a full size one . I have the demensions for it so I was thinking of all the things I could do LOLOL My wife says I am a dork . I will have to wait on this one until we get in a new house though . And thanks for the compliments I still have more to do and then onto the B-17 . I just need a decent model to start with on that ?
