  1. Hi Bill I see that Ben has answered this mainly and what he says is correct, and I agree with it. The resin I use is a UV stabilised polyurethane resin, and therefore it should not yellow. I have cast many clear parts over the past 15 years and do not know of any that have yellowed, extreme sunlight for many years might, but I do not know of any modeller that would do that to their models. Many other guys cast using epoxy resin, that will and does yellow but you still need a section thickness of at least 0.8 to 1.2 mm like most kit parts for the material to flow. I am not sure
  2. Thank you for the purchases, and for the kind comments, it makes it all worthwhile. More sets are in the works, with lots more to follow in the coming months.
  3. Get well soon, hope you are on the road to recovery now
  4. Apologies for the delay, simple answer is that the project is not dead but it is not ready either, however a few are pestering me for it so will try and finish it off soonest. cheers Ali
  5.

  6. Just a short update from Aerocraft Models. Well firstly to all my loyal customers, and followers thank you for all the support through last year. I like many do hope that 2021 will be a better year for all of us in many ways, even though the start of 2021 already looks to bringing even new challenges. Over the Christmas holiday period both my wife and I tested positive for Covid, I think I may have brought it from work as far back as the 18th of December. One way or another I have had to isolate from the 20th through to the 12th, boy it is a long time.......It gets really complicated as I
  7. Ok all sorted, I will make Ben a set of clear parts this week all being well, and then will make up a complete set with the frames etc. hope all goes well, when I have a result I shall inform you all.
  8. Thanks Anthony and Rick. I have a Tamika kit, in BITS AND PIECES, from when I was going to do the K/M conversion, and canopies are still good to be used as masters. I will do a set of clear canopy only parts for STARFIGHTER if he wants them, after that I will assemble and cast with the frames, so he best be fairly quick. PM on the way Rick, regards other items discussing
  9. What would you guys prefer, just the clear parts recast in clear resin that being parts D5 and D6 or them assembled onto B52 and B53? Also would you want the screen doing as well? I cannot see any reason to do the frame D3 between front and rear but do let me know otherwise. Starfighter :- I think you would prefer just the clear parts without the frames, am I correct? I could make you a set of those fairly quickly all being well, BUT with the holidays and everything they may take 2-3 weeks from now to arrive?? Please send me a PM if you would like me to do this for you, o
  10. I am not sure what way to take this comment, and as I do not know who you are it makes it even more difficult to reply. do you mean like my other projects OR OTHER PEOPLES PRODUCTS. I am a one man band, I do have others helping from time to time with some projects but in essence it is just me. I have a full time job and the rest of my life to live as well. Added to this I did start these originally by hand mastering that was not working, then decided to try the 3D approach, which I started teaching myself in August.I was struggling I asked another to help with the 3D drawing, a very
  11. Two more great looking books, I will be needing one of each to add to my growing collection of this series. Keep up the great work on producing these books
  12. Some sneak previews and news about what I have been up to over the past few months. A few months ago I took the plunge and invested in 3D software and 3D printers.......and upto that point I had no experience in 3D drawing personally or to do the printing. Previously I always had to rely on others to do the drawing and Shapeways or similar to do the printing. Well I jumped in at the deep end and I have developed some parts and printed them myself (not without a lot of torture, late nights, frustration and lots of wasted resin) BUT that is what it takes to self teach yourself new skills and fat

  14. Hi Guys Thank you for the suggestion, do keep them coming, cannot promise I will do all of them but will try and do some especially where interest is shown. This is a project that I do have in mind so there is a good chance that it will happen fairly soon, however there is quite a delay with the brass casting company with creating new moulds and also in production, so that may slow new brass products down a little further. cheers Ali
