movies to model by

Does anyone else here like to pop a movie in the dvd as background noise while modeling? I put on either 50s sci fi or documentaries,depending on my mood. Tonight it's the original "the Thing" although I may watch the remake next time. Battle of Britain is good while doing a '109...Tora Tora Tora while doing a Zero...etc Now to find a model to work on,having just finished the smer me262a (with the nose from the haswgawa kit grafted on and decals for white 19 from the revell kit)

I have the TV on when I model but only if it's something I am interested in slightly. If it's a show I like, I can't concentrate on my modeling. Same with movies, that's why I never model with one on. Eric There is never enough time to do all the nothing you want. Calvin and Hobbs 1990

News junkie. That and cop shows. History shows. Wings channel.

This may all change when I get the VCR set up in the office. I have about forty aircraft videos that may just get worn out.

I like it right now in the summer (in NZ) because then I can model while watching cricket. The two just seem to work together.

Usually 50s sci-fi or a war movie.The Thing, Them and Body Snatchers are favorites along with Tora Tora Tora and They Were Expendable. There's a real sleeper called The Flying Saucer I use as background while doing some tedious. Saturday morning I used to work to Mystery Science theater.

50's SF is always good... especially the cheap (>$9) DVDs with 3 or 4 movies on them. All but the worst movies are fun to build to.

I built a Tamiya T-72 tank while watching the MST3K episode of "Lost Continent".

You God-Damnned poor bastard, how the hell do you model with the flying bats attacking you?

Here, take some ether.

Killer Klowns was filmed in the hometown here. (Capitola, CA., down in the village at the beach). Cool movie.

What the hell ARE these goddamn animals? I need to switch to acrylics! There is nothing more pathetic than to see someone in the throes of a Xylene binge.
