I have decided to do something well outside my comfort zone.  That includes snow and ice since I do not have any experience modeling either.  That being said I am going to build a ice covered lake with a few extra snowy details.  I have started on some trees and gone to Hobbycraft to pick up some supplies so we shall see where this goes.

Baby steps. 
So far I have built up some of the trees that I envision for this build.  The pines are spun wire and Silesia string off my jig. 

The oaks are twisted copper wire that I wrapped up this afternoon. 

The lake top has also been roughed up out of a piece of 3mm plexiglass.  Shown here on a black background. 

I cannot claim the frozen lake technique That belongs to the master Richard Windrow.

Hope you like.

Snow day today so just like Eric the shed I cannot use my garage/shed as a paint booth.  I had to work on something else for the lake.  I was going to add this close to last but I had to switch my timetable around.  Based off this aerosled from Alaska. 

Here is what I came up with this afternoon in Stencil card.

Lots of filling needed plus the engine and the running gear. 
Hope you like.

Uh-oh, this looks better than my SkateR - which incidentally was to have a frozen lake base as well!
Only way I'll beat Snitchy would be in a race of the beasties as mine has an auxiliary jet engine  Grin

Very nice work - curious to see how you'll make the running gear.  Cool Cool Cool
Reminds me strangely of the Guild Navigator tank in Dune (the film).

Don't count yourself out yet.  I can easily screw this up since I have never even tried snow and ice.  Thanks for the encouragement all.

Not so much problem solving.  Near as I can tell all the aerosleds outside of Finland and Russia are one of a kind home made vehicles so that gives me quite a bit of artistic license.  Unfortunately an afternoon is all that I had.  Looking for work and housework ate up the rest of my time.  Sucks that my last contract ended just as this competition started up.

Take care all and thanks for the kind words.

You've got the lake, trees, and a beautiful aerosled is nearly done. What are you planning to show us on the remaining 55 days of the competition?
