    My 1/8 BTTF Delorean (WIP)

    Thanks Brett, I am definitely going to weather the engine after it's completely finished. I'm going to go for the used look that was seen in the movie. Although, the engine looks pretty awesome in it's pristine condition as well. I do have to say this is a very enjoyable build. Keep checking for the updates. Mark

    NOVEMBER/DECEMBER UPDATES - 2018 Sorry about the delay in the update. The weather and work have been nearly impossible this whole last month. A quick update for my website, though: For those visitors who check for updates on their cell phones and tablets, I was able to get the issue of viewing the pictures on my website resolved. I have received several complaints about visitors not being able to view the pictures on my site. It seems there was a software issue that has now been updated, so you should be able to visit my site without any further issues. I've tried it on my own phone and now I don't have any problems seeing any of the pics. Thanks to all for letting me know about this issue! Hopefully everything is fixed. My only update for Nov/Dec is for the DeLorean Build. I have over 50 new pics on the 1/8 BTTF DeLorean page. Check out Slides 57 - 110 on the 1/8 BTTF DeLorean page. The assembly goes very fast with each of the Issues received. It takes about 5 to 10 minutes per issue so I can do a few things every few days if I need to. This is a really enjoyable build. Currently I'm working on the building of the Engine. The details are just phenomenal. Please check out the pics. Drop a few comments if you can. As many of you know, those who have followed my builds over the years, December is a very low model building month for me so I will probably not be able to get much of anything done until early next year. The drydock has been on hold now for a while jus because of my job. But hopefully things will taper down by the 1st week of January and I can get back into the swing of things. Please be safe during this time of the year and I will see you in 2019. Thanks everyone! ~Mark~ http://www.NemVia.net

    I haven't had any issues with the parts fitting, other than some of the pre-painted pieces have had some overspray into some of the screw holes. This is easily taken care of with am Xacto blade to remove the flash. The only real issue I've seen so far is the screws. You are supplied with magnetic screwdrivers (good thing too, I've had a couple of them get away from me) But in some cases you can't get enough torque with the Philips head to tighten the screws enough for a tight fit, so I'm using a screwdriver with a larger head to grab onto some of the meat of the screw head. But it seems to be working out. Mark

    Hey Brett, yes this is the sight I used or the one that I originally found the advert on. Hope you get the subscription. I have been following the build-up on the rpf. I was intrigued that you can get as many issues as you can afford in the UK. But, at the moment I'm in no hurry. Looks like a lot more of fun to come. I just received notice that my next 4 issues (15-19) are on the way. Should have an update in a few weeks. Thanks for your comments. Mark.

    My 1/8 BTTF Delorean (WIP)

    Yes, I've heard of this as well, but the UK way is a little cost prohibitive for me even if we could get it. I have mine budgeted out for each month, so for now this is okay for me. However, when I am building it and get down to the last issue for the month I keep thinking...."That's It?" I must have moooore!. Then I have to wait for the next 4 issues to come in the mail. Oh,well. Thanks for your thoughts, Brett. Mark

    SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER Updates - 2018 Hi Everyone! I didn't forget about you. I've been working my tail off at my secular job. A Lot of changes being made that interfere with my projects BIG TIme. Hopefully it will calm down a bit over the next few weeks. For my DeLorean build, I had to hold off on that for about a month because my ISSUE 10 had some missing parts. The different size fixing screws are all labeled with letters like DM which represent the screw size needed to mount some of the parts together or to the main frame of the car. Well, instead of sending me the screws labeled DM, I received to packets of AP screws which a smaller than the DM screws so I could not finish some of the build. O got on the phone with Eaglemoss right away and told them what the problem was and without question or charge they sent me another issue 10! This was awesome. I only needed the screws but they sent me a Whole new Issue. I couldn't believe it! No problems! Great people to work with. So if anyone needs a new Issue 10 minus the DM screws for whatever reason let me know. Anyway, instead of just the September update with issues 6 - 9, I am also adding Octobers update with Issues 10 - 14. Little by little the car is taking shape. I have 37 new pics of the parts and assembly of issues 6 -14 on the 1/8 Scale DeLorean Build page for this month! Check it out and I'll see you next month. Mark http://www.NemVia.net

    1/260 ST:TMP Drydock(WIP)

    AUGUST UPDATES - 2018 Wiring, Wiring, WIRING! Yes, that's pretty much all that I've been doing this last month. Wiring and double checking the circuits to make sure they're working. I've had to do this because there were so many loose wired from both the Enterprise and the Dock that I needed to start getting these out of the way so I can do more wiring and lighting. Really there are only a few more effects that need to be added and then I can start working on the display stand switches and trim work. Besides the wiring I've sealed the open hanger on the aft end of the dock. The ceiling is now permenetly cemented to the structure. I will be adding a mirror to the back end of the hanger to give the appearance that the Hanger goes much farther back into the modules than it actually does. She's coming together. Please hang in there. See you next month. Mark https://www.nemvia.net/apps/photos/photo?photoid=205240915

    Okay! There you have it! Thanks for the research. Either way the overall cost is too much for me to take on all at once so, spreading it out over time works for me. Also it's nice to put something together that doesn't require painting and masking, etc.. A Nice easy "take-My-Time" build. I appreciate the assistance. Thanks Again, Mark

    My 1/8 BTTF Delorean (WIP)

    Hi Ken, I believe I saw this kit on e-bay and it said it had 18 issues. It was being offered for $140 and about $55 with shipping. I never bothered to look into the entire cost of the kit directly from eaglemoss because I knew it was cost prohibitive for me at least at this time to buy it all at once if that is even possible through this company. I haven't really checked on that. This build is just a diversion for me and one that I can work on very quickly to give myself a sense of accomplishment while working on larger projects. I also like it because all of the painting is done for you. Quick assembly. Thanks for your comment. Mark
  13. I Just received my first 2 issues of my Back To The Future Delorean Time Machine. I've never done a subscription build before, but this model intrigues me. The best part about this build is that everything is pre-painted to specs and all that is required is the assembly of the pieces. I LOVE IT! Each of the issues takes only 10 - 15 minutes to assemble. There are decals and screws that come with the kit. This build is a nice diversion from my other projects which are very time consuming. So here goes.... enjoy! Mark http://www.NemVia.net Go to my Home page, go to "More" look under Members Photo Gallery You'll see it there. https://www.nemvia.net/apps/photos/photo?photoid=205223546 https://www.nemvia.net/apps/photos/photo?photoid=205223547

    1/260 ST:TMP Drydock(WIP)

    JULY UPDATES - 2018 Back on track for this month! I was able to finish off the top of the display base by tacking down some Black Velvet material so that is now completed. I can now prepare to add the trim to the base then begin working on the lighting panel controls. In this month's update I have made some lighting test shots of both the light panels and the mark lighting. But first I had to square off the frame of the dock. This needed to be done because the added weight of the Enterprise was causing the front end of the dock to sag. So I had to level that off by adding a cable and turnbuckle to even things out. This also allowed me to make the panel frames square with the rest of the dock. Next I have to do some tweaking of the individual panels to make sure they are even with the rest of the framework. I am now running all of the ships wiring down the back of the support frame to the switch board panel that will control certain lighting effects for both the Dock and the Ship. The new pics are posted in the JULY UPDATES - 2018 page. The lighting test shots came out pretty good. Check 'em out and I'll see you on the next update. Mark http://www.NemVia.net

    1/260 ST:TMP Drydock(WIP)

    February Updates - 2018Hi Everyone! This months updates are pretty good. First I have started to add the Black Velvet Material to the Base of the model. This will help make the model appear to floating over the base. The panel frames will be supported by two screws on each side of the frames to hold the structure up and help keep it level. This is also a very good sign because it means that I will soon be adding the Enterprise permanently into the drydock, then adding the port side panel frame assembly into place. I've added all of the wiring and some new lighting to the rear hanger bay on the dock by using the LED light strips. They have some interesting details on the strips that would make the lights appear to be a natural fixture on the dock. I will also be replacing the lightings on all the other hanger on the dock as well. It just looks better. On the Enterprise I was originally going to use magnets to hold the two saucer halves together, but because the pieces don't line up very well, I've decided to permanently seal up the saucer. The LEDs should last quite a long time and even if there were a problem it would be impossible to work on the Enterprise in the dock unless I take the whole port side off of the dock and remove the ship. That Ain't gonna happen. In cementing the saucer together, I've found a lot of other gaps that needed to be fixed or repaired. The bottom impulse engine does not meet up with the saucer, so I had to use some styrene and putty to fix that problem. Also, the collar of the Dorsal was not molded very well so I had to replace that as well and then putty, sand and repaint all of these areas. Where the pylons meet the secondary hull there was a gap at that point, so I've puttied that as well on both pylons. The reason for holding off on that was because the model was going to be handled a lot before I added it to the drydock and I knew because of the stresses and weight of the model there would be cracks forming in the putty. So I waited until now so there would be less handling of the model. I also did the same with the Deflector Housing. Because of the way the Secondary hull was molded and put together the two halves did not line-up, so there was a gap on the port side where the pieces would meet. I was originally going to use magnets with this part as well, but decided to seal it permanently and putty up the seam to get rid of the gaps.There are just a few more touch-ups to do and then the Enterprise will finally be added to the dock. I can then add the Port Side Panel framework and begin the final wiring of the model.On a side note, there might be another delay with this build as my landlord decided not to pay his mortgage and has gone into foreclosure with our unit so we will be moving to another location. But I will try to get back to this project asap.I have 11 new pics in the February Updates - 2018 page. Check-em out and I'll get back to you soon. Have a great month everyone.Mark.
