modelwork and magazine article update

Tuesday 19th October 2010

Well, Ashley is determined to get the modelwork completed so we can get all the shots finished for Devious. Here's a couple of recent shots showing the intricate nature of some of the work...

 

Above we see one of the completed gunsticks - although the keen-eyed will note it only has 6 rods instead of the usual 8. This is because it was one of the first to be made and the construction method had not been refined to allow all 8 to fit. Apparently the first four are threaded through the central rod and bent to shape and glued, whilst the other four vanes are attached to the outside of the rod. The hope is that the glue will suffice as these are rather delicate - he had hoped to solder them as he had done 20 years ago when he last tried this - unfortunately the rods were made of steel and the central core was brass.

Below are a whole set fixed to polystyrene blocks in order to dry...

 

. and as a bonus we see a certain David Tennant (in his new BBC drama Single Father) on the tv behind some of the new dalek guns! Well, you need to have the telly on when you're working - just to keep sane! (well that's what he tells us).

Ashley is hoping to have the modelwork fully completed for next February...

... is the issue we beliefve there is an article about Doctor Who fan films - and we feature! That's all we know at the moment!!! If anyone sees us please let us know via the usual method (say hello page).
