WIP French Embassy on Mars/August 2021

 So its not finished......what's new lol. A WIP of the French Embassy in Syrtis Major. I still have to square the circle of the corbels from my mdf waste box. Add some basic furniture and maybe two internal walls to make offices and of cause flags. Lots of flags! Tricolours everywhere in honour of the 3rd Republic.

More mini Martian projects WIP/July 2021

 Two posts in one month, not my usual form.

First the start of a French Embassy and second a little mystery.

Working from the 'TRANSACTIONS OF THE ROYAL MARTIAN GEOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY' 

EDWARDS GUIDE TO SYRTIS MAJOR: THE LEGATION COMPOUND

19. FRENCH LEGATION

Second only to the Russian Embassy, the French Embassy sits in the southeast

corner of the Legation Compound. They have built an Louis XIV Embassy

in all the glory that was France of the end of the last century. Adding

to the splendor is the Ambassador’s residence in Martian stone and French

gilt. The Trade Delegation is almost as large as the Embassy, but it was

constructed in a imitation Martian style that some have found offensive in

middle of the Legation Compound. The French reason for building it in this

style is quit pragmatic, as they would say, “We trade with Martians and they

feel more at home here so they are more willing to bargain.” The French

have a full platoon of infantry stationed here, the largest of the garrisons. To

house them they have built a two story barracks.


TT Combat WWII hotel is the basis for the building.



The next is still in the bag for now.




A kit found online that shouted out to be converted to something else Martian.

WIP Consul Buildings on Mars July 2021

 Not much to show today. Working on some consul buildings for Mars. Likely to be Spain and Italy but with additional buildings and a flag change. They could be Dutch or Austro-Hungarian? However they couldn't be Russian or French due to their larger structures in TRMGS's Syrtis Major work.

March/April 2021 update

Very little to show you. April has been a busy real life month and not much time for hobbies. Working all year and last month training new staff etc etc. Hopefully the Summer will allow my time for paint,glue and mdf.








Just a little progress on the older Hullcutter.

Martian Gashant Yard/Jan 2021

So now we are in the new year a steady start. A small WIP of a gashant yard for the market place board. Made from left over kits and mdf sprues. A few extra internal walls to add, animal troughs and the main gate. The idea is it was once a domestic/commercial building now being used to house gashants for sale in Syrtis Major.






And a reorganising of my painting station to hopefully get some more VSF minis out this year.





One little message to the London Business School. Please stop trying to post on my page! GO AWAY!
