ATHENA - Steampunk Airship (106)

Hi all,
Well, so you like the idea of me finishing the ATHENA at last, huh?
Some seem not so confident - me neither :)
But well.

Look what's on my desk!

The last time she was seen, was September 2013 (ATHENASteampunk Airship - 105)
But honestly I'm not sure how far I will get this time.
By now the plastic is very brittle, and many pieces started to warp.
She's still a beauty though.
Got some real spider webs :)
So now I'm taking stock
Some pieces are broken
and she needs a good cleaning.
Sheesh, probably a whole spider colony.
So I started to repair some of the broken pieces - a wheel on the STRIX VTOL aircraft and a blade on the propeller.
As said, no promises.
I'm trying to enter her at the SMA Big Spring Contest as "Shelf Queen" for which she definately qualifies :)
But I will be out for two weeks - visiting Scottland - and then I'll see.

A Meeting of Scouts (8)

Hi all,
I hope you are all well :)
I'm currently a bit down with a cold - you know the one that's a sneeze to women, but life-threatening to men ;)
But luckily I was able to complete the diorama.
Too bad the auto-focus didn't agree with me.
But I think you get the idea :)
Even though I'm not 100% satisfied with the lady's face, I think I can live with it ;)
To bring it all together I applied some more pigments to the vehicles and the scene.
I think this makes it look a bit more realistic.
And the completed scene :D
I hope you like it.
I want to thank you very much for accompanying me on this little journey and I hope you enjoyed the ride.
Thank you for your feedback, suggestions and comments.
They lifted this project a bit higher and made it better.
Some HQ images to follow :)
