The Build List ...

In a comment on my last post - wip-stoelzels-structures-federal-house - LuckyJoe, author of the superb LuckyJoe's Place blog, asked what I was building next ...

"Good question!" I thought, and decided to do a post listing what I'm intending to build ...

So here it is:

The following are for an idea I have to create a base for a security force that will be attacked by zeds at some point:
And I also have a bunch of models to make for a spaceport from Ebbles Minatures too.

On top of that lot, I've got a few Dave's Games models to build 

I'd also like to have a go at one of the models I got from the Illinois Main Street webpage that Zabadak found ...

And finally - that I'm prepared to admit anyway! - there is a secret Stoelzel's build that relates to Door Number 2 in the Clinic ...

So, as you can see, the 'Collins & Nash' architectural firm is going to be shoulder deep in foamcore/cardstock for several years at least ... A positive note, though, is that Zombie-Me has agreed to become the regular guide to builds following the unexplained, mysterious disappearance of Van Fampi ...

  1. Colin, there is an awful lot of stuff on that list that's on my own "to build" list. Great minds think alike! Like you, I've become a big fan of the work produced by Stoelzel's Structures.

    1. Thank you both for the kind words, the admiration of work is certainly returned to you guys (and Joe (among others)), and not just in that self fulfilling way, the detail and attention you bring to your tables has always made for the most gorgeous and inspiring of eye candy. Cheers, Carl

  2. Looking forward to all these builds, but especially the Stoelzel ones. It's good to see other's problems (haha)and have warning of some of the potential pitfalls.

    Van Fampi was a pain anyway- he's such a perfectionist !

    1. So does that make be a trailblazer then?! Kewl!!

      I really can't comment on the 'Van-Fampi-debacle' - sorry. The lawyers for Collins & Nash Architects have taken out a gag order on my blog ...

  3. Man, that is a lot of stuff on the build list. Thanks for the kind mention of my blog, too. :) I agree with Vampifan, great minds do think alike. I have all of the Stoelzel kits listed, but none of the Ebbles (all of my Ebbles stuff are the older ones) and none of the F&T kits you listed. I really like the F&T Factory, especially. Thanks for posting the links, that is very helpful.

    1. Yes it is ... as for mentioning your blog, it was the least I could do, which to quote Colonel Bloodnok, "is a quantity that I specialise in!" ;)

      And very glad to be of help to you LJ - your blog is inspirational
