Hello

How many of you have a modelling blog such as Blogspot, Tumblr Blog, etc ?

I'd like to know so I can check out & follow your blogs (and so you can follow mine if you wish)

I started a (Google) Blogspot in 2009 and somehow never got around to updating it. Till this week.

In the last few days I have added 12 blogs to it regarding Braille scale builds that have been completed in the last couple of years. These blogs abut old builds mainly have one or two pictures of each build, & brief comments about the build & kit. Not much in the way of 'in progress' pictures or comments for these past completions.

But as I get up to date with more new blogs to my recent builds (Horch Ambulance, Opel Blitz bus, Steyr 1500 etc) and then onto current 'in progress' builds, the blog will be updated a few times a week with detailed progress on whats on the workbench at my place.

I hope to add a few blogs each day of next week of my already completed builds to get it up to date.

Of course I will still fully participate in the Weekly Updates, and Group Build, and in this BS forum as per normal.

My blog is in the below link, if you wanted to have a look.

For anyone unfamiliar with Blogspot, you will see pictures are quite small. If you click pictures they enlarge. Comments can be made or questions asked, about anything in any blog. Only the most recent blogs display, in order. When you get to the last blog click 'Older Posts' to see more.

These Blogspots are very easy to make, edit & add new posts to, & are free, and no I.T. skills are needed, for anyone thinking of making their own blog. I believe Tumblr is similar but haven't tried it, I'm happy enough with Blogspot.

cheers
Neil

good idea Neil

I started mine a year ago no models but sculpted figures and conversions I made for varies companies over the last year and a few just for myself, do plan on making more models but with all the sculpting finding time is hard, last kit I started I got as far as cleaning the hull and redoing the engine that was 2 months ago

Hello Patrick

I had a look at your site, very fine sculpting indeed, and in the perfect scale. I will enjoy having a good look around at your work. The Carrier crew, & SAS North Africa Jeep was very interesting as was the 'bomb girl' - great diversity in your work

Hopefully some more people will post their blog links so we can all see whats going on of interest.

cheers
Neil

After receiving so much help on The Net from guys from around the world I decided it's time to return the favor and made a website of my own. It's Wordpress-based, I am paying about $60 a year and have full access to it, no limits to image size, etc. Some of you have already been there, as I tend to post a few images as an appetizer, and the rest (in-box, build and ready stuff) is here:

http://modelcrafters.net

Still some more stuff to upload (the completed Panther, a Pz. III, and some more), just finished a Mk. III Churchill from DML, which you can see on Armorama:http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op= ... nt&id=7918

I am building in different scales now - currently another Armorama review of a 35th Stug IV (DML again), some 48th aircraft soon to appear as well. Hope you'd find it interesting and useful.

Hey Peter

wow, I had a look, its just great !

your Panther G log had me amazed, with some ideas I had not heard of or tried, the camo pattern idea looks to be a new technique with a great end result. And good detail in general of what you have done and found with the build, you don't do anything by half . I'll by bookmarking this one to read your other build logs & check regularly, thanks for the link.

cheers

Hi Slavi

I had a quick look around and see you have kit previews, and noted a couple of kits of interest. I will return for a long look at whats on your sites (using the english language options).

Thanks for posting these links
