  1. Great footage. I don't think I've seen this before, which is a nice treat. Thanks for posting.
  2. Hello, I received the H-B W.12 for XMas and am gathering info and materials to start the build. I'm probably not going to superdetail it since it's my first WW1 plane build in a long time, but there are two things I wanted to add: nice rigging and some pilot/crew figures. Any suggestions for turnbuckles to use for this plane? Ideally some that are relatively easy to use. I don't think I'm ready for microtubing, but I do want to have the look/ form of the turnbuckle at the end of the cable. Also, any suggestions for pilot and crew figures for this machine? I don't think I'll do a whole display diorama, but I like to have guys sitting in the cockpit at least. Thanks for any ideas! Dan
  3. Magnifying lamp suggestions

    Wow, thanks for all the great suggestions! The video monitor set up will have to wait (brilliant idea!), but getting a nice set of magnifying visors sounds like a good start. I also need a good desk lamp to light the area well. Last one I got burned too hot, which is why I thought a magnifying lamp would be good. Just need to shop around though. Thanks again everyone! Dan
  4. Very nice! Looking forward to seeing more of your build as inspiration for mine which I plan to start on soon...
  5. Looks amazing! Very inspirational.
  6. Hello, I was wondering if any of you had any recommendations on a good magnifying lamp set-up. There are so many out there, I'm wondering what are the best brands and types. I'm looking for something that would help with painting details, and also working with small parts such as photoetch. What kind of magnification would be best? My close-in vision is OK, especially if the subject is well-lit, but I just need a little help sometimes. Thanks for any suggestions! Dan
