@single mosby: can you give a link to the perry crew?

For my two trebuchets (8 crewmen models) I will be using a two or three from this bombard, four or five from these labourers and this cart.

I have received the Perry miniatures yesterday, can't wait till I get the Trebs. They should be here any day now.

Re:Alternative trebuchet model 1 Year, 8 Months ago
Just ordered a couple of these, how long do they usually take to arrive?

Re:Alternative trebuchet model 1 Year, 7 Months ago
Looks like a nice model. One question though: Is there actually enough room for the weight to swing without hitting the ground? That's the only thing stopping me from ordering one right now. I know it doesn't really matter, but it would bug me if I had a model of a trebuchet that couldn't actually function in real life. I'm hoping the answer is yes, because these look great!

Re:Alternative trebuchet model 1 Year, 6 Months ago
I've to say, when i sculpted it i tried to make it working.

But i must confess that when i assembled it i didn't pay attention to that aspect, so it really looks that it won't work, unless you glue it differently.
Sorry about that =(


beside that, i just read a bad review about this piece on a forum (the first one, luckly)... well, not considering the not-too-kind-words about the resin excesses and casting bubbles that in my advice where quite out of the track, there seems to be a complain about the time taken to assemble it.
for that, I prefer to warn all the future buyers here:
This is NOT an easy kit!

I wrote it several time around here and on other forums, but i prefer to make it clear(er). I sculpted it for a few people interested and it has having an unexpected success.
There will always be unhappy people and, as always, hater's gonna hate.

Cheers,

Jack

Re:Alternative trebuchet model 1 Year, 6 Months ago
Well, all of that said, I'm still interested in picking two up. I'll probably drop you a line towards the end of the month. Now to start tracking down crew.

Re:Alternative trebuchet model 1 Year, 6 Months ago
Sangennaru's Treb comes with a fair bit of flash to remove, and the occasional bubble to fill. It holds detail very well but could be brittle, or a little warped in transit. (thats what you get shipping to down under in a hot cargo hold i guess.) But at only 10 Euro, it beats the pants of GW's!

It is a one sided mold, so I found whittling down the resin's underside to be helpful. It removed the flash as well as adding shape to the inside which would be expected on a carved tree stump. Keep your box cutter blade sharp and its not too much trouble. A bit of fun even.

I havent yet decided whether to drill out and use a metal rod for the swing arm, or to just glue it together. Mine are cleaned up, but not assembled yet Another project in the mountain of plastic/lead.

Re:Alternative trebuchet model 1 Year, 6 Months ago
mine (the first of two) is still WIP, but I found that gluing was not really an option - the surfaces are much too small for the final product to withstand any kind of transport. Drilling turned out to be pretty easy though (less hassle than the gluing, actually), which is what I would recommend everyone else do.

Re:Alternative trebuchet model 1 Year, 6 Months ago
Do you have a tutorial or photo's of your pin points? I'd be interested in seeing it while still in WIP.

Re:Alternative trebuchet model 1 Year, 6 Months ago
Sure, I am not quite sure if this is what you mean, but here are some pics of the drilled holes, and of one of the crossbars (which is just a nail that I've clipped the end off). Drilling in resin turns out to be very easy.








All glued joins (except for the two sides of the counter-weight) have been reinforced with bits of paper-clip.

As to the painting, this is just the first layer, I plan to add one or two home-made washes on top of this.

Re:Alternative trebuchet model 1 Year, 6 Months ago
It's such a pleasure to see all you people working on my kits.

I understand that it could be more pratical, but homecasting a bivalve mould is something i wouldn't suggest to my worse enemy!

Re:Alternative trebuchet model 1 Year, 6 Months ago
so, sangennaru, you said you'd be working on some stakes and braziers, how are they coming along?

Re:Alternative trebuchet model 1 Year, 6 Months ago
UPS!

The project now has been put apart.

But if you say you are interested, i'll start working on them again! Sorry for that! I'm having many WWII commissions and i've to sculpt several master buildings for mass production, that is distracting! But I can shure find some time to finish the project of stakes! ^_^
