  8. Thank you chaps, And yes, Ken, its free for publishing, RGDS
  9. Well, at the end, must explain, why not follow the LUKGRAPH painting and decalling instructions , and chose yellow top wing scheme. First, its more colorful , and to me, represents 1930's Naval aviation "standard". So, i do little research and found , that 7738 , from CV-2, USS Lexington, 1931/32, have few paint scheme incarnations , after some overhauls, and in part of its service life, have yellow topsides, clearly shown at this photo, where wing topside is darker than silver undersides. 7738 photos found at Papermodels forum, explaining source of these pics. Also , was puzzled with paint description given by Lukgraph, Admiral blue ; Silver and Light Gray , generic, but not enough for me. Found this Esoteric 1/72 scale vacuform Boeing F3B-1 kit instructions, and Colorslide decals , where exact FS is given and paints stated as: Orange Yellow FS 13538 ANA 506 Gray FS 16473 ANA 512 Strata Blue FS 15045 Using color conversion charts, closest paints i have in my stock are Revell 310 Lufthansa Yellow, Revell 350 Lufthansa Blue and Humbrol 175. With some scale effect blending , hope this is real representation of Boeing F3B-1 from USS Lexington.
  10. Boeing F3B-1 Command Aircraft by LUKGRAPH bought at 2019. Moson model show , at LUKGRAPH stand , waited till Jan.2020 to start work on it , Overall, nicely enginered , well casted and finely detailed , one of easiest to build resin kits i work on, and i build it a lot , to mention just few labels , Preiser, MDC/RB, HPH, Legato, Fisher, Omega, Planet, NKR, Montex ... Not counting my own, Aeropoxy range kits... (they are out of contention) :-( Starting by the book, nice illustrated 16 pages A4 instruction. Cleaning and assembling, Cockpit, Fuselage, Engine, Subassemblies, Priming with Mr Surfacer, Wings, tail, struts, with copper wire made anchors for bracing , drilled and glued, and painting, Silver, Yellow, Revell 310 Gray, Humbrol 175 (now discontinued , use any Hellgrau 76) Blue, Revell 350 Windscreen, 0.1mm thin clear acetate foil, cuted using provided template and glued to the etched frame with MrColor gloss lacquer. Decalling , over Humbrol Clear gloss varnished surfaces , Somehow, i do not take pics of rigging process, (which take whole sunday afternoon) but this is done in usual way, using 0,2mm fishing line, and microtubing as a turnbuckles, drops of superglue and later spanned with hot screwdriver tip. After decalling, started with final lacquer coats to gain high gloss finish, using recomended MrCollor GX100 ... what a disaster... Dark blue instantly became light gray and dust white..., Almost a month of work , instead of RFI topic, was candidate for RFTB , Ready for trash bin... But, after overnight drying, old, trusty Revell 01 gloss and Humbrol Clear brings salvation. Almost all the traces of dust removed , just few spots i must to overspray with Revell 350. After a subtle wash and weathering, Boeing Command Aircraft was ready for inspection, here:
  11. Same weird logic of cutting have my Graphtec CraftRobo cutter, sometimes function "COMBINE" in Corel X4 helps to reduce randomly rolling and cutting here and there, sometimes not. After 5+ years of use, i still not have answer to this question. If someone have the answer , will gladly read it and learn something new.
  12. Thanx for the nice words, to all. Yes, full interior completed, despite more than a half will never be seen again. But i know what's inside... Wings, i do it separate, see the photo attached, connected with four 2,5mm steel wire pins. Canopy was made by instructions , and real plane wartime photos , no changes. Squaring wings and tail is troublesome , but in few dry fitting and adjusting steps , looks OK. Fuselage was little warped, but its thin, and with all the inner rib structure , fits more or less OK, need some superglue as a filer in some places. I love Walruses , build Airfix an Matchbox in 72, SMER in 50 and looking for new Airfix in 48. Uggly plane, but story behind its name is great. And, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
