Show Us your favorite "old" project.........

We all have had projects that stuck with us long after we were done with them. Here is one of my personal favorites. It is alittle outdated, no batterybackpacks. But still my favorite. The first pics was what got me started on the project.

Enjoy
vehicle



Now show us yours

It would have to be my old M8 HMC. I never did finish it off, but it's definately the last 1/6 anything I would part with.

This was my first photo shoot done Sept '01. A simple US vers Germans set up. Done with a 35mm camera, and scanned to computer. This is my favorite, because this is what started it all for me. The best photos are of Scott and Edward's assult of the hill. I've done many shoots since, they are better each time out, but the first one will always be best.

My first "real" project, meaning one that I put extra effort and research into (including asking the veteran in question) was "Johann Voss", author of "Black Edelweiss".



The first draft.



The finished figure.

Cool posts!

Here's a few of my highlights from yesteryear...(I've haven't been able to engage in 1/6 enough in the past year to come up with any new stuff, anyway. )

If I had to get rid of everything but one thing I would keep my homebuilt Marder III Ausf H:



As far as figures: Hans, Baldur, and Billy Hicks are 3 that come to mind, but I really like all the tankers and air force figures I have.

Man, there's some great work there guys. Reading this post made me go back over some of my old pieces (mostly now stored in my loft)
My one favourite piece which I never got to finish to my satisfaction (are they ever? lol) was my Brit WWII Para Jeep





Keep up the posts it's amazing what gems you forget about.

Regards,

Paul

One of my favorite old projects is my first custom/bash fig which was my avatar for many years



Another of my favorite old projects was my first 1/6th group I put together with a few guys called "The 1/6th Scale WW II Modelers Society" which is still around as an archive of all the great work people contributed

http://p075.ezboard.com/bonesixthwwiimodelerssociety

There are many other projects I have from over the years, photo shoots, figure bashes, and vehicle projects, but I have to say that these two would be a couple of my oldest. I also have to add that one of the first shoots I ever did with my son I still chersish, and was alot of fun

My Favorite Old Time Bf-109

The Bf-109 that I made a couple of years back is still my favorite and has it's place in the War Room. I get more comments on it than my other projects when anyone stops by.

Here's some old stuff that I found on some backup-CD's:








Of all the old projects, this must be my favorite;


Man, I have to make a new version of him some day!

Sadly I don't have any them in my collection anymore, most of them were hacked up for parts for other projects, others sold.

Best old project

I would have to think that my 21C Kett, and my 2nd attempt at modeling pretty much anything, would be my favorite. Though the 21C Kett is not as accurate as the later DiD and DML versions, I still love it and have a hard time thinking of parting with it.











Thanks for asking.

Steve

Here's the SECOND (the first thing was my 1/6 Fokker DVIII, sorry) thing I ever built in 1/6, shortly after Hans appeared on the scene:



I showed this on Greenleader's board (picture 100 I think) and shortly after someone contacted me wanting to buy it. I think I sold it for $80. Seems like a long time ago now.

Not too bad for some PVC pipe, wooden table legs, and lawnmower tires!!!


LOL!!! I had to go look to see if it was still there:

GREENLEADERS PHOTO SECTION


Might as well show a picture of the DVIII (Has an original German G.I. Joe in the cockpit):

Thanks SV!

The crew consisted of the original German G.I. Joe, 2 Cotswold Germans, and Hans.

It doesn't seem like that was only 10 years ago

I've been griping lately about the cost of the new figures, but the Cotswold Germans were around $60 back then. The Cohoon Plastics Kubelwagen was $110!!!

I just love what you did with the hasbro halftrack. I saw one on ebay the other day and alomost got into it because of the possibilities shown in your work. But at the last minute I changed my mind. The price was just getting too high.
Anyway thanks for showing her again. This thread is really turning into a great show case, there is so much fantastic work out there.

I really like that halftrack. You did a good job modifying it and how you set up that picture. I didn't buy one when they were on clearance at Toy-R-Us now I regret it. The fact that they were obviously underscale bothered me, but now I wish I had one to use for photoshoots. Those Hasbro Halftracks can look great as long as you put a little thought into how you compose your pictures.

Thanks for the kind words. I have enjoyed all the photos posted on this thread. What a great review!

Here are links to the original 'halftrack threads' if anyone missed 'em the first time around.

It's ashame that Hasbro couldn't make their half-track closer to scale. It wasn't a bad base to work with. Yours looks pretty good Mdeevl.
