Today is the last day for us here and so, its time to clean things up. I think this is the last of the lot but I know there are still some termite gunk-ed Playmates TNG Tricorders, a Type I TNG Phaser, a Borg cube and an Enterprise-D somewhere. Anyway, here are more recovered models and toys.
|FFVII's Cloud Strife's Hardy Daytona.|
Sadly, I could not find Cloud and chances are, most of the parts are not 100% recoverable. Then again, I think there is still the toy...
|Airfix's 2001 Space Clipper.|
The unpainted on the left is missing a tail sensor while the one on the right is an embarrassing exercise in hair-brushing
|Complete six sides and stand for the Playmates Borg Cube|
|Some other 4WD stuff and (now vintage?) Warhammer plastic skeletons|
|The details are OK but not as sharp as what you see on the current plastic models.|
|Repeat after me: "This is not earth. There are no termite bodies in there."|
OK? These are dried termite gunk.
|Just want to share with you on this model. Its Prince Xizor's Virago. It has moving wings/sail.|
|Why is it so special? The model was left exactly as it was, nearly ten years ago. This is where I found and currently using the model cement.|
|The pair of cutters that has rusted and grown moldy.|
|The clothes pegs still on the wings/sail, clamping it while waiting for the glue to set. Its as if it was frozen in time, waiting for me to come back to complete it.|
|Some resin fantasy girl which I got it for no reason|
|The beautiful resin crouching Alien. Missing was the throne/base made of bones and facehugger|
|Finally, found more parts to the Heavy Metal resin kit, "The Embrace"|
|I think, most of the parts are complete now, what is missing are the instruction sheets, Well, hope to track some reference pictures in the Internet one day...|
|The classic Monogram Colonial Viper where I spoilt the canopy and ruined the base when I first try out a scriber. I was very impatient then. And still am, now.|
|The Aoshima (I think) 1/24 Back to the Future 2 DeLorean. The sprue frame of the grey parts in the bag is warped, while the decal is well, spoilt by water and the instruction sheet eaten by the termites.|
|Russian BMP-1, supposedly bought as kitbashing source. Surprisingly, it survived intact.|
|Ah, my Enterprise cutaway which I wanted to light it up them. Thank goodness I did not because looking back at my electronics and LED skills, it was more of a work done by a caveman.|
|Sadly, this Merkava will be a source for kit-bashing now since the tracks, suspensions, wheels, lead parts, etc are all gone.|
|And that's it for now. After clearing so much crap (yes), this one big bag of sadness is what was left. Its going to the bin and I hope this is the last I will remember of the termites saga.|
