    Dave, you sure get a lot done while under MO restrictions...
    Great work on Hunter’s Shapeways.

    Robert, That Snoopy looks perfect.

    Again everything looks great, have a couple of Shapeways E III's myself.

    Now for my weekly Jap group (should finish this up as he gave me Marines tonight). And a couple of my Black Seas ships half done, still need rigging and sails. Figured a few Brigs and a 74 gun SOL should be a nice start.

    Roughing out a couple of Martian cylinders for Tripods and Triplanes - will likely use one in our gaming tomorrow at our monthly get-together. We recently had an oriental rug cleaned, and it came back from the cleaner rolled around this 4-inch-diameter/3-foot-long cardboard tube...talk about serendipity! I had already purchased a piece of 4-inch-diameter PVC drain pipe for the same purpose, but the cardboard one seemed easier to use in all respects. The first picture shows the tube with a Scarab next to it for size...

    Here is the first 'buried' cylinder I cut from the tube...

    ...each a bit different in buried attitude. I plan on mounting them on bases and using papier mache to build up the dirt and cover the tubes so they have a roughened appearance described by Wells in TWOTW. I am toying with putting a battery-operated green light inside them so they have that otherworldly glow Wells describes, too, but we shall see how that goes. More pictures as things come together.

    All the best,
    Matt

    PS - Wells describes the cylinders as being 30 yards across. At 1/200 scale that's roughly 5.4 inches...but I think 4 inches is close enough to give a proper 'feel' to things - plus, things come in 4-inch measurements (I looked for 5-inch things and came up empty-handed)

    Now that's how you recycle things!

    Hmmm, it does make sense for the cylinders to be made out of containers used for shipping.

    Matt, those scarabs/cylinders are really well done!

    Great idea for those cylinders Matt. Always great to recycle something that would just be thrown away.

    Nice Snoopy! Love your painting and the bullet holes!

    Nice idea for the Martians. Tim, concerning the sails, I NEED the rigging as those plastic masts are going to break real quick without support. Also as it is a combat game where the ships are under sail..Well gotta put em in. One thing I will do though is make sure they are curved. Seen a few on You Tube where they just glue the top to the spar and let em hang straight down, nope...looks too odd to me.

    Looking forward to those Cylinders Matt.

    Stylish idea for the cylinders Matt. Your prototype has me thinking about some scrap PVC.

    The Massacre of Mankind has a scene of the Martian city with numerous structures, valleys and cylinders . . . makes for a challenging play mat, toss in some red vine fabric mesh and a few tanks . . .

    These strangely painted birds are taking a bath in paint remover, might survive to become a new squadron . . . not that I need another one.

    Very nice - are you going to go for rigging on them? Personally I thought about it, then decided "life's too short" but the ones I have seen done are damned impressive
