Back in 2008 Jim Hartman was creating a series of Battlecar models, the first two kits are here; One Monk Downloads
When I acquired all of his files five years ago I came across a prototype for the third version...and then forgot about it. Recently I spent a week in the hospital and I remembered this old project, which I've now cleaned up and released. The second link is for the blank version of the model so that people can make their own color versions, which I'd be happy to collect and host.
The first two kits were themed around corporate sponsorships for their color schemes. What I'd really like to see is a collection of Battlecars themed around Paper Model creators. Have fun with these and please post your designs.
Hi! I'm Harry, formerly "Coyotepunc" here on the forum. I am a hobby addict; I prefer papercraft scenery to use alongside my 28mm metal and plastic miniatures, and am not afraid to mix and match my hobby media. I game sci-fi, fantasy, and historical (including Ancients, Dark Ages, Renaissance, and World War II Italy & Sahara.)

I'm getting better. The doctors told me it was the worst case of shingles they'd ever seen. It was the Ramsay-Hunt version so half of my head was enflamed and it felt like my teeth were being electrocuted every two seconds. The hospital put me in isolation and gave me 8 different medications, the food was pretty good though. I've still got crazy pains stabbing my ear and half my face is mostly paralyzed, makes it hard to wear my glasses when the muscles around the eye don't work correctly. I'm getting better though, thanks.
Shingles are NO FUN! Sorry to hear that. I caught a case early and missed most of the issues one can face. I was very lucky and it still sucked. I was also dating a doctor specializing in geriatrics at the time so THAT helped.
Made it all the way through the blog. Can we place a link to it in the header here?
Sure, but I don't think it'd be terribly useful to place it here. I mainly use it to mirror announcements that I make here, in two places on Facebook, and on Patreon. I'm also pretty sure that all of the blog followers are here in the forum.
Vermin King: I appreciate the effort to do comics. Story line, setting up the scenes/frames, setting the dialog to be concise, and bringing it all together. All the best, sir

Vermin King: I had gotten down to less than 1/16 of a mile and not being able to stand for more than 4 minutes without crumbling to the ground, so getting better. Now, I just need to get my folks improving

Vermin King: My stressful 2023 started in March, 2020, and fortunately, progress is keeping up with the set-backs ... for the most part. I'm still upright and last Monday, I was able to stretch my after-breakfast walk to 3/4 of a mile.
