Ross,

I like also transformations like that one, made for a Warhammer 40K Eldar motojet pilot (not finished):

First the "before" pic...

... and then of course, the "after" one...

I must say that as model maker, I dislike the quality of the plastic of GW figures (remenber the 1/72 and 1/32 Airfix soldiers: it's the same. Good for play. Bad for model working...)

The soft plastic that is used in these figures is mainly done for the safety of children.

The last time I played with my Airfix soldiers most of them died from the home made flamethrower I had. Aero fuel for control line planes shwo does burn quick... :eek:

Ross,

I understand perfectly that soft plastic is more secure for kids: when my son was younger, as he liked to observe/dismount all what falled in his hands, every toy was potentially dangerous... :) Fortunately he's more quiet now, just putting my cars out of the way on Formule Dice; shooting down my aircrafts on Airforce; burning my T-34's on SPWAW... and my entire armies on Warlords III or Warhammer 40K :D
Sometimes I find he's really aggressive; sometimes I find me becoming old... :D
I just remain better at chess.

Like you, some of my Airfix soldiers were victim of fire. It was the time I bought some aircraft kits especially to play with the HO figures (with a friend, we found that a burning kit was extremely "realistic" during our games...), in the sand my father bought for some work to do at home. He was really not happy when he founded (sometimes that happened!) some little soldiers in the maçonry :D

Jamming with my buds. No time anymore for "serious" bands anymore but woodshedding with the guys is still a kick.

Photography. I make a few bucks doing special projects for people and that keeps me in film for the fun photo stuff I like doing like manipulating Polaroid image transfers. I gave up having a darkroom until I can build a permanant one.

Golf anytime it's not snowing. Just got a new set of Pings a couple of months ago.

Bikes- both kinds though I haven't owned a motorcycle in years. One day maybe I'll have a few extra bucks and will be able to get that new Guzzi.;)

Cooking. Baking mostly now that I live alone because I can take most of it to work and give it away.

Women that despise me. I don't know why I find them so attractive.

[QUOTE]Originally posted by Les the Sarge 9-1
[B]There is a lesson to be learned here people.

Don't do drugs, or smoke anything for that matter, don't drink unless it is offered to you free from a buddy, avoid owning a car (and a license and insurance and gas costs and repairs), and get married so you don't spend a fortune on dating.......

...... and you can own hundreds of models

Contrary to popular belief, cars are not always vital, and well yes wives have a tendency to produce children, that can become interesting [/B][/QUOTE]

Live in Belgium.
Taxes are so high your boss will eventually pay the car for you. so he spends 100 and you get 90. if not he spends 144 and you get 48.

Anyway as it goes about hobbies

1. kids
2. books (no space eaters)
3. gardening.

these are the 'politically correct hobbies'
egoistic hobbies would be
comics (you can't avoid it and live in Belgium); chocolate (same), model buiding but stopped when i was 18; dungeons and dragons but stopped before end of studies, squash (but stopped for lack of time).

you know what ? this is depressing, man. i realize i don't have hobbies anymore. i jut try to survice and spend some time at home with wife and kids.

as i don't fell like i have enough time for it, the rest goes into the basket.

In the past it was radio controled aircfraft, mostly scale WW2 fighters, I'd like now to get into R/C quarter scale cars, But they just built a new go-cart race track near my house and now my 7 year year old granddaughter wants to go go-cart racing. she has me wrapped, so I'm helpless to refuse.

Reading, history or fiction
Cooking, doing most of it for the family now
used to be hunting but the days of just asking permission and getting to hunt are gone as the local farmers are all leasing their places now to help make more income and I can't kill enough to feed the kids compared to the amount of groceries I can purchase for the cost of a lease.
