Laugh good stuff!  Express bacon delivery!

I think with the exhaust trail coming out of the back, it should be called smoked bacon!

Added more Green Stuff. Can definitely tell I don't sculpt at all, but this contest has pushed me out of my comfort zone and nudged me to try it, so I'm happy I'm expanding my skill within the hobby.

I used an old brush (pulling out all the bristles) to get a sculpting tool to do the rivets:


I think it looks okay (I have no idea why that photo is off centre - I blame the eve of a looong weekend Cheesy).

Also found two snotlings to fly with my pig, they're not being helpful to each other:




The angle's a little off - but the back guy is really clinging on for dear life. The PVA glue in the smoke trail is taking a little long to dry.

Think I'll be painting by Friday (and maybe I'll get the tower done, we'll see).

I have the same goblins Wirelizard is using for his build, and one of them is holding a torch. I was going to base him on the launch ramp's base, but I think I'll keep him based singularly now.

Thanks. Have started to paint, so this might be the last photo for a while (depending if I think I can get the tower done in time).

Bits held together with Blu-Tack as it'll be easier to paint in parts.


The rocket will be sperate, and I'll glue a rare-earth magnet to it so I can alternatively attach to a flight stand.

That is awesome!

No straps to hold Tromper to his ride? Wouldn't want flat ham after he fell off, would we?

 Laugh This looks great. The pig looks like he will enjoy the flight at least, if not the end... Cheesy

Yeah, I'm going to add some pegs (like on a motorcycle) for each trotter.

Ridiculously nice. At least there is a good chance there will be some bacon along the way.
