    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...

    ...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)

    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!

    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.

    So I did the Salvadorian P-51's. Now here is the last Honduran Corsair. Also added props ( from the Aerodrome store) to them. Corsair 609 is on one that was flown by a Capt Henriquez who shot down 2 P-51's and a Corsair.

    So I had 2 F86 Sabers I have been going to decal. Here they are.
    First up a ROC Saber. Their markings were pretty much the same as the USAF at that time.

    Then I decided to do the other one as a JSDAF. The markings are from different decal set I have from MISCMINI. Fuselage stripes are from a ZERO set and the tail markings are from the ANN set I have. Thought I would just do what I wanted on this one.

    I was inspired by Matt's cylinder and started looking around at my supplies. Turns out I have some cardboard cylinders from vinyl so I mocked up the end pice on fusion 360.

    I'm thinking that a cool scenario for the cylinder would be to start with one tripod protecting the cylinder then add additional tripods in a set amount of turns to represent the time it takes for the Martians to build each unit. Squids could be built quicker and cuttlefish would take longer.

    The end piece looks really cool. Would you be making it in two parts, for an end rim and open hatch?

    I'm not making the prototype in two parts but that is a great Idea. I remember from reading the war of the worlds that the back unscrewed to open so maybe I'll make a threaded hatch.

    This was just a one minute quickie, but I wanted to differentiate the Nieuport 16s from the two T&T starter sets I picked up. A handful of decals and a dab of white paint later, and I have N16 2, one of the anonymous planes outfitted in a hurry to fend off the martian invaders.

    I painted up the prototype and the threaded hatch is on the printer. The cardboard cylinder gives it a rough texture as described in the book.

    After I painted it I did a bit more research and found this description that says the metal had a yellowish hew.
    "The external encrustation of the projectile's outer hull is an ablative material designed to radiate heat from the atmospheric entry away from the interior. The metal used in the construction of the projectile is 'an unfamiliar alloy with a yellowish hue."
    I also found this information that will help with putting it into the game.
    "Each cylinder could hold five Martians..., five semi-disassembled Tripods, two semi-disassembled Handling Machines, ... The diameter of each cylinder is approximately thirty yards. The Cylinder also comes equipped with a Heat-Ray Cannon to clear the areas around the impact site. The Martians then use the cover of the crater to build their machines and weaponry, deploying a Digging Machine if they need more space."

    Looks fantastic. Those who have no access to 3D printing will shall surely go for a regular silver painted jar lid .
