    I totally recommend building this model. It's fantastic. Though as for finishing it I just haven't had enough time.

    As you know I've been busy with a few things lately and just haven't been able to keep going on them all. The Sulaco is almost done for now and when Christmas is out of the way (you know what I mean?) I'll be able to come back at this. I'm also building one of the Lazy Town airships for my kids tonight, and because it needs test building before Claudio can host it on his site.

    Busy busy busy!

    I'm really looking forward to doing mine, and am starting to consider slightly larger than double size, I just hope I can get a new camera before I start cos I plan to go pretty nuts on added detail and really want to document the whole process.

    Still eagerly awaiting those pics of yours though... don't be shy now. :D

    I just came across this, while getting some more data for the Batwing.
    you will have to register to view this forum so i just took a screenshot...

    Claudio, do you know this dude? he is offering both your tumbler, the '66, as well as the ninjatoe's 89 versions.
    while not calling them his own - he isn't disclosing they ain't his either....
    his files are here -> Badongo free file hosting and image hosting

    Not very clever that. He's from my neck of the woods too! Just hope he got the permission for it.

    That's sounds good to me. I host and hosted Ron Caudillos 1/50th and 1/25th TOS Bridge models and didn't even think to add additional information. I mean, it was on every page of the model and directions. I sure as heck didn't try to take credit for the production. I think people get way to twisted up over copyright stuff. I mean for Pete's sake DC Comics, Universal.....etc.... they own the copyright. I've always credited everyone when working with them on the project, but unless a guy is blatantly taking credit for someone elses work.... I don't it as an issue. A lot of people don't even credit their work for being inspired by say Paramount, or Matt Jeffries. I know Oyl does, as does Ron, but a lot don't. I wouldn't sweat it.

    I've been working on a TOS Enterprise and was litterally run out of the styrene community, now all of a sudden another person, or persons are working on one for production, but you don't see him crediting me for inspiring him to actually do it, instead of talking about it and I'm sure not going to loose sleep over it. :mrgreen: You also don't him/them crediting Paramount. I'm sure if a C&D showed up he'd be crying though.

    Sorry, end of rant.:eek:

    Nice and sincere maybe, but wouldn't it have been even easier for him to just give them a link to Claudio's site?

    Oh and how's that tumbler going Skip? long time no updatey :D

    I know, I've been off my game!

    Been so busy here. I made the mistake of starting another build for my kids, then got too busy to finish that as soon as I'd have hoped. Now I doubt I'll get anything done until after Crimbo!

    I'm trying but this damn REAL WORLD keeps getting in my way! :)

    Sorry buddy. Though upon saying that I've been studying Batman Begins for you. I have the mechanism for the cockpit hatch nailed now! I think if I could get hold of Claudio's original mesh, I could model an interior for your second big build! I think I have enough of what I need for it.

    Not my Tumbler but I call that an Tumbler update! ;)
