Junkers J.1 by Abiogenisis Junkers J.1 by Abiogenisis
Just completed a Wingnut Wings 1:32 Junkers J.1.

The A-10 of its day, apparently they were so well armoured none were ever taken down by enemy fire.

Oh, MAN! I love the wear on this--both the "random" things like the marred front hubcap/wheel cover/whatever and the non-random damage patterns like the chipped paint on leading edges, rust where rivets & seams shift just enough to crack the paint, hard-to-reach grime.... I'm female, so I'm rarely impressed by unbelievably perfect models (yes, that's a sexist remark, but no harm done), but I LOVE realism that makes SENSE.

And that's also why I just spent over an hour delightedly browsing your Birrin section. Just--wow!


My own hobby is languages, where you can see the same sort of underlying logic despite all the apparently random chaos.

For example, English has predictable grammar for most words: one computer, two computers; I compute, he computes, they have computed.

But our oldest and most basic words still have the messier fossil grammars of thousands of years of habit, like the odd animal plurals: goose/geese, mouse/mice and louse/lice; but sheep/sheep and fish/fish; and then there's sow/swine; and, if you're hieland Scots, cow/kye or kine.

We also use irregular fossil verbs all the time: drink/drank/drunk/drunken; see/sees/saw/seen; and most of all, be/am/are/is/was/were/been (I'm told those are a merge of two different root words, beon & (w)esan, but I haven't tracked the whole sequence down personally). And then there's go/goes/went/gone (again, two different roots; "went" is the past tense of "wend," as in "He wends his way," and hieland Scots uses "gaed" instead of "went"), and so on.

So human languages, like everything else about us, are always a very human compromise between logic and habit.

Take the way different languages construct a basic sentence like "John hit the ball" (as opposed to secondary versions like "The ball was hit by John," "John's the one who hit the ball," and "The ball is what John hit").

English puts the verb "hit" in the middle; German puts it at the end (John the ball hit) and some other languages put it at the beginning (Hit John the ball). But in EVERY  language, "John" ALWAYS goes before "ball" in that basic sentence, because we all know that John's the one doing something, and the ball's just what he does it to.


So yeah, I'm a geek. A word geek; a language geek, the way others are code geeks or train geeks or geology geeks. And I love to see another geek who cares enough to get things right. ;)

You might be interested to know I am working with the fellow who developed the Na'vi language to flesh out the birrin language some more!

The detail on this is seriously mind blowing. I've got such clumsy hands when I'm trying to get any small detail with a brush, or even decals. When did you start assembling models? You're a master at it.

The key is not to use your hands XD Use surgical tweezers and dental tools!

I only had whatever the bathroom cabinet yielded, which was toothpicks and normal tweezers. I saw the kit at a local model shop and it was sort of a spur of the moment purchase, I didn't do as much prepping before hand as I should have :P
