That's a good way of looking at it.

Mine is Juggy Beta Wink

Just looking for something to yack about (its raining its butt off in Stuttgart today and I'm stuck inside)...

This is a fun kitbash I did just before I left the States. One more reason to buy an extra F-OL...

The Nancy


This job barrows on some techniques I used years ago to make my first AxBC (which I now use as an AxCVA). In that case, I had a couple of old F-S minis with the engines long lost. I had a couple of old NCL engines available, and the rest is history...

The Samantha


I think these guys compare reasonably well to the "official" mini for the AxBC...

The Jean Marie (don't tell my wife)


Not a perfect match, but given the sort of hodge-podgery going on in the WYN fleet anyway, I think its fine that all the details don't match exactly.

Thanks man!

My wife says the checker board on my WYN ships makes them look like taxi cabs. I could never have hoped to paint them on, so I used the smallest black and white decals I could find from Microscale: http://www.microscale.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=CH-2-1-16&Category_Code=STRIPES&Product_Count=245

If you stare at the decal sheet too long, your eyes will play tricks on you. Shocked

My wife said "What, no racing stripes?", so it sounds like her and your wife would get along. Wink

No doubt.

Here's a couple other WYNs, just to fill the time...

Those look really great, Jeremy.

In case you missed them a few months back - here's my WYN minis thread.

Scoutdad, awesome work on the WYN's as usual. I knew I had see another set with checkerboard someplace. I need to get myself a Fed Pol and paint it white!

Love your WYN Jeremy. I got to get working on some of mine! Very Happy

What'd you use for the "bracing" on the Nancy, styrene? Nice cutting job if so!

'Bout time you got over here buddy!

Yeah, the Nancy's "modules", "bracing", whatever, is styrene strip cut to shape. Not as hard as it might look - the key is get the styrene built up to form the outer edge of the frame, then use putty to fill in the inside of the frame next to the pod hulls.

I was about to ask you how you cut out those perfect half-circle holes to mate it to the hull. Wink

Now I know. Putty. Good job man!

Yeah, this board is definitely where the "minis love" is at these days!

Green with envy (like a Gorn) of Dale's Lyrans, I have to post a couple pictures of my own...
