Saw the poster for this yesterday and looked it up:


With the way I feel about heights...

I would have to say, it was hard to watch. I also have an extreme fear of heights. This film deserved an Oscar, given the risks they took to make the film. He had climbers with video cameras all along the way.

The most difficult to watch was the Boulder Problem portion. A part of the climb that required an insane amount of risk. One minute mistake, and he was a goner.

The only other film that made me so uncomfortable was the 2015's The Walk, the dramatic retelling of Phillipe Petit's 1974 attempt to high-wire walk between the Twin Towers in NY. The CGI in that film alone made me close my eyes at times. And I saw it in 3D.

I like Van Jones a lot - wish he and Axlerod would team up and run for POTUS........or at least have them both on the ticket. Barring that - a role in the current administration.

4th and final episode (for now) is airing next Sunday. I followed the case on Serial and Undisclosed podcasts. The show has been pretty good as well.

Stopmotion assembling the Romfell Panzerwagen kit from Copper State Models in 1/35. With the diorama I tried to simulate the kit's boxart.

Many thanks to Chloé Plattner for her great support.

The Romfell panzerwagen, a unique Austro Hungarian armoured car with its distinctive inward-sloping body, even today it looks like from another galaxy. It was designed by Hauptmann Romanic and Oberleutenant Fellner. Their names were combined to give the name to this car. Romfell was equipped with a machine gun that was an air-cooled Schwarzlose M07/12 protected by gun shields, with a supply of 3,000 rounds. Based on the schassis of a civilian Mercedes passenger car, the idea was to design a fast, high.y manoeuvrable vehicle with good towing capacity, giving full protection to its crew and equipment against standard infantry bullets. In some literature it is suggested that there have been two Romfell armoured cars. Official reports do not mention anything about a second car and the conclusion is that there was only ever one car body, but with two different chassis. I painted the model with colours from Alclad II (Mil-Specs and metallics), additional details achieved with rods and tubes from Albion Alloys.

Music: Night Snow from Asher Fulero
