The little mech is entirely my creation, but it's currently sitting on a hard drive that's not attached to a computer and password protected, along with Jim's Entire One Monk Figures Library. I'm working on rescuing it, along with the others, and finally getting around to coloring and releasing it.
The Huge Titan started out as a build of someone else's paper modle, but I kept adding and redesigning it as I went along. Sadly enough those files are with the others, and the model itself was destroyed by my son. It never got finshed, and I don't play 40K enough to motivate me to rebuild it from scratch.
I seem to only be able to focus on projects that revolve around what ever game I'm playing at the moment. Right now that's Marvel and Mutants and Death Ray Guns. Robots are used in both, and something I don't suck at, so I'm rolling with it.
Reivaj, I'm getting use out of your androids and Plant Elementals in my Mutants and Death Ray Guns campaign. I'll try to take some pictures if we play this weekend.

Dangit! The old inaccessible hard drive ...
Back when The Sims was popular, I had all kinds of creations I did for it. All of the gone due to a hard drive crash. Really inaccessible now, since my computer tech/friend who was trying to retrieve it has since used the computer for target practice.
I noticed you had some figures that I don't remember seeing before. They are probably in your One Monk file on the same hard drive, huh?
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

I know there is at least one guy in the Ottawa area that puts old computers in the trees around his farm and uses them for target practice. It sounds therapeutic, but I didn't imagine it was wide spread.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
This make clear, to me, why i don't draw paper figures.... you have a lot of sketch and drawings, i have 3, 4 HD with all my "music phrases" (a rythm, a chord progression, a melody).... all things that i "captured" in 20 years of "computer music" and that i keep copying around 'cause i don't want to miss them.
Sorry for the OT, i've found interesting the similarity between your "idea basket" and mine

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
