    Marie Fredriksson

    I have never posted at Zealot about something that wasn't related to modeling in some way. Yesterday I woke up, and then I was shattered. I saw that Marie had passed on the 9th. She sang the songs that played behind most of my life. I am still reeling. I know that we all have things other than...

    BSG custom power sled

    I decided to rebuild Revell-Fan's BSG Power Sled. I am me, so, I couldn't leave well enough alone. I repainted it, cut out the treads (because Rhaven Black set that standard), added the Landram tread cleats, made a passenger bench seat, and recessed the headlights. There are a few other...

    Addams family living room

    A few months ago I ran across a paper model of the Addams family living room, from the TV series (link not included at this time, intentionally). I hemmed and hawed for a few weeks trying to justify the price, and finally the subject matter overcame my cheapskate nature (and the knowledge that...

    I decided to try building some 1:18 planes, to go with the 21st century and BBI planes I have. I thought a MiG-21 would be an easy first try (it's just a tube and two deltas, right?). I figured that at 1:18 I would need to beef up a paper model. So, I have scaled up a GPM MiG-21 too, well, 1:18...

    After doing nothing of note for an entire week, I decided to build the stocks I designed earlier this month.

    The rack

    Another weekend, another alpha build. This weekend's build is the rack. This is a design I have been planning for awhile. Also, I did not alpha this in the white. I am getting more familiar with Gimp, so I went for broke. It is not finished, so if you like it, stay tuned.

    Another mine car

    So, instead of building or designing Halloween themed stuff, I am working on mine stuff. My father and brother just returned from Butte, MT with plenty of pictures, so here I am. My father saw the previous ore car, and said "You should make the two holer." So, here it is. You should figure out...

    Mine ore carts

    So, I had a wild hair. My grandfather worked in the mines of Butte, MT. As a child we went back to Butte almost annually. I decided to design and build some ore carts. I did these as I could design the models using only a scale and pencil. I designed both with a 1" gauge and the intention of...

    Patlabor AV-98 Ingram 2

    So, now that I have the wide format printer, I up-sized the Paper-replika Patlabor Ingram. I saw that the AV-98 models are designed to 1:24 scale, so I printer the model at 133%. I intend to add LED lights with flasher circuits. Any help with that would be appreciated, I am thinking 555 IC.

    Kallboys' Chapel

    I decided to set up my new Epson Artisan 1430 wide format printer. The first model is from, The chapel. The model is 1:25, but I scaled it up to 1:18. I did not embellish this build.

    Papermau's new crypt

    So, being in that October 34th kinda mood, when I saw Mauther's crypt I had to build it. Being me I had to build it 1:18ish. I printed one page did some math and 115% it is. On Friday we had a dark and stormy night, and lost power for several hours. When I started printing my damn print (Knowing...

    Rest in peace Scott Carpenter

    Today I got to work and was sadden by the news that space pioneer Scott Carpenter died today. Several years ago I visited the Naval undersea museum in Keyport, Washington and was excited to see the endcap to Sealab II, where Carpenter spent time exploring the sea after his Mercury flight. I am...

    Trying my hand at design

    The title is an outright lie, to be honest. I have an evaluation version of Rhino (Catia is too damn expensive, Draftsight is 2D, I have an eval copy of Sketchup; but Zathros vehemently endorses Rhino). At work I play in Catia, but I can't take it home. So, I have some ideas for models, twisted...

    The Knoll gatehouse

    Ray Keim has released the second model from his excellent Knoll story last week ( I have spent several days studying the model and what I'm going to do with it. Well, because it's me I'm building it at as near to 1:18 as I can figure. After a daunting...

    1:18 Crichton build

    Hiya! I am chronicling my test build of Marcell's excellent Crichton model, from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. His design is very intuitive and elegant! I did deviate from the design in one area, when building cylinders, I try to avoid an overlapping joint. So I made a tab to lap behind both...

    1:18 BSG Snow Ram

    I have started it, my first BSG Ram. Many thanks to Revell Fan for his excellent design! I am planning to build the vehicle that is stuck in the memory of a starry eyed 7 year old watching "Gun on Ice Planet Zero" in glorious low definition with stunning mono sound. That memory distilled for...
