  1. I've been searching but have found little. Just found the Brit modeller write up thanks to you! Thanks!
  2. I want to make some custom photo etched parts which require me to do the artwork, but for some reason I can't get past the artwork part. I'm guessing the answer is obvious to one of you, but for me I just don't see it. Is the following set of steps the best way to go about it, or am I missing something?: -research the part I want and figure out the size and final dimensions I need it to be -make some vector drawings on my computer scaled up from its final size so its easier to work with using a 2D drawing program -scale down my drawings to final size and print off a test to confirm the size and dimensions are correct -make any adjustment as needed -print off the artwork and photo etch Is this about right, or am I missing something?
  3. Thanks Ralph. I'll keep my eyes peeled for one.
  4. Hi there. I'm hoping to start on my big 32nd. scale HK Do 335 and was wondering what good references I should get for it? I do have the monarch book (on order) plus the older schiffer book and Merrick's cockpit book which all cover this aircraft, but are there any other references with good pictures anyone can think of? Thanks, Chuck.
  5. Wow! They seem to be setting the standard for 3D printed figures. Is there any kind of layering visible like you would normally find from the 3D printing process?
  6. Fantastic airbrushing Ralph! I don't know if you've covered this before or not, but would you mind sharing what your set up is for the very subtle airbrushing you do? More specifically, what kind of air pressure you spray at, how thin is the paint, how close to the model do you apply it from and anything else you can add to this topic. Thanks for sharing your work, Chuck.
  7. Looks great! Not sure if I missed it somewhere, but would you mind sharing what software you used for the 3D printing?
  8. Just seeing this now. Beautiful wood grain on the LVG! Can you tell us your method?
  9. Amazing if it's legit. Who said dreams don't come true!
  10. The Felixstowe would be at the top of my list, but seeing that it might be coming, here are my next top three: Siemens-Schuckert D.III Albatros W.4 Junker D.1
