Am nearly done with assemblying and painting the ramp.

The rocket is half undercoated (brushed black paint into the bits I know the spray undercoat will miss). I really need to get basic colours today (not much time for the hobby during the week).

I also started on the tower, photos aren't a great reflection of what it looks like:




It stands about 21cm tall and will need ladder rungs for the bottom half (the supaglue-stiffened rope is just for climbing the top half) and sheet metal panels for the crow's nest.

Thanks. Was just spraying on the matt varnish. Stupid thing falls. Grrr - will need a little touch up paint before I take photos and then submit.

All painted, photos taken - just need to sort and create final image.

Here's the rocket before painting:


Good luck to all that are in the final push to the finish.

Thanks, but after a busy week at work I didn't have the time nor energy to complete the tower. Did you get the handler sculpted and it all painted (I see you've submitted - well done)?

But it will be done in the next few weeks as it'll only take a few quiet hours. I have definitely enjoyed this, but have decided LPL will be too much to take on in a few weeks as there's a few things I have to concentrate on for tournaments/game days.

Na didn't get it painted but submitted anyway. Handler was completed enough. I was going to do a backpack but it is fine(ish) without it.
