  1. So my daughter just had her first birthday a couple weeks ago and while plenty of people showed up we did end up bringing home a lot of leftovers, dessert in particular. We had about a quarter of a sheet cake and a few cupcakes too. Those cupcakes in particular though had a little something extra, topping each one was a plastic ring. Well I have to admit I couldn't help myself and the wheels started turning. After maybe a couple hours from start to finish my "Fabulous" guardsmen" now have a "Fabulous" barricade/firing line. With its very large coverage I think this piece may be bet
  2. Here is our current adventuring party for Iron Kingdoms. We started a new campaign shortly after Reapercon, so I was able to make use of several of the convention minis. This party is quite an odd mix of races. Lately, I've been quite fond of having a semi-cohesive color pallet for our adventuring parties. The last one I did was all in cold blues, so with this one I went for a very warm pallet. Lil is an investigator who 'secretly' is a Thamar Advocate. She's just the stock mini of the vampire hunter from Reapercon (by Bob Ridolfi) This Pygmie Troll is very fo
  3. Awhile ago I came across a terrain tutorial video about building barrels and thought I'd give it a go. After the initial steps of collecting water bottle/soda lids, gluing them together, and even priming them the project came to a halt. Well after a couple months of staring at a bag of primed bottle caps I finally got back to work. The next step in the build was to create an actual lid/opening in the top of the barrel. This required two pieces; it needed a small bead and a slightly larger round piece to glue the bead onto (in the tutorial the builder used small wooden discs they f
  4. PROJECT...Shanty town outhouse (gift for a friend)... DATA...On August 6, 2014...I displayed a shanty shack that I built as a gift for one of the Reaper members who has become a close friend...this is the outhouse that goes with that shanty shack...My son and I just returned from a luncheon meeting where I delivered both the shanty shack and outhouse. I really enjoyed building these 2 small pieces and hope that my friend (ub3r) enjoys the final results. Paul (Catdancer)

Open Wooden cigar box (used as cash register)... 8.
  6. MODEL...CONGO KEEL BOAT...1/35th SCALE...SCRATCH BUILT...AFRICAN PRINCESS (AMANDA)... HISTORY...On the river, known in common terms as the (taxi)...the version depicted here is the (23'6") boat with a (2'4") draft. Used for the moving of just about everything on the Congo River system. The most famous version of this type of boat was depicted in the 1951 movie " The African Queen " with Humphrey Bogart. The (Princess) version was in common usage from 1928 to 1972...although you can still find some in usage today on both the Congo and Nile river systems. NOTE...My model is completely sc
  7. As promised, here are the postings of the secondary building that goes with the previously posted wharf workshop. This building is again 98% scratch built...it has no interior details (only the exterior). This brings to a close my postings of non-fantasy items. I hope that you enjoyed viewing the (3 such postings) as much as I enjoyed the presentation of them and wish to thank all the members for their comments and I am sure in some cases...their toleration of my posting my nostalgic memory materials. Catdancer!
  8. Having spent my youthful summer vacations from school at places like Vaca Key, Breton Sound and Alazan Bay; I learned a great deal about boat repair and salvage work by doing all kinds of jobs at small wharves and deep sea salvage firms. This piece is from those youthful days and memories...It is 98% completely scratch built (example: the paint cans are drinking straws...the hot water heater is a cigar tube...the sink is fashioned out of heated plastic sheet...the coffee pot, fry pan and other items are made from sheet lead...and so on. The non-scratch built items are all parts from my ext
  9. From a very early age, I had no parents...as my profile states...I have been married to a wonderful lady for (40+) years...her father became the closest thing to my having a " dad " and with all my love and respect through his living years...I called him " pop ". I built this piece as a nostalgic memory of that wonderful man (T.O. Dunn). T. O. Dunn Junkyard & Salvage: Vintage pickup truck...at the gas pump is a Wheelworks metal miniature truck kit. Rusted junk car...car in work area...tractor...are all die-cast toys that have been reworked. Human figures...are all Preiser figures
  10. As a change of pace from my fantasy miniature painting and fantasy terrain building; I work in the modern era in areas that deal with modern mercenary models and figures. This is a (Congo Keel Boat). On the river it is known by the common name of (river taxi)...the version depicted here is (23'6") with a draft of (2'4")...used for moving just about anything on the Congo river system. The most famous version of this boat (a longer version) was depicted in the 1951 movie (The African Queen) with Humphrey Bogart. The model is 97% scratch built in the 1/35th scale area and in the " princes
  11. GYPSY WAGON # 3...(Small 2 wheel utility/supply wagon under repair)...This is the (3rd) of 6 wagons that will be featured in this part of my traveling Gypsy nomad band. The wagon is complete except for the base edge ground cover work and the final seal spray of the whole vignette piece. It is completely scratch built and the vignette measures (3"x4"). NOTE: Credit for this wagon idea & vignette concept goes to fellow member Darsc Zacal...who suggested that I do a wagon that was being repaired.
  12. I am often asked (HOW DO YOU DO THAT)? Every modeler has their own way of doing things and this quick note is not intended to change the way established model builders work. It just puts forth the way that I do things (for what it might be worth to others reading this). 1. PHOTO # 1...I build 98% of my pieces on standard ceiling tile. It is easy to cut, shape, groove, paint, etc...it is light weight and takes both white glue & hot stuff very well and it does not warp or bend. 2. PHOTO # 2...All my roads are made/covered with real desert dirt (not store bought)...I gather up a j
