  1. The parts arrived last week. Thanks much!!! No w I have kit that will work with the decals that are out!

  2. I was at Scottcon. There were some nice looking 32nd build ups. The vendoring was not to bad.

  3. Go figure. I was there for a conference at Macon State College. Wish I could have stuck around for Scottcon. Did you go?

    Parts should be there tomorrow.

  4. I was in Macon Myself. Small world LOL.

  5. Hey Rob...sorry for the delay. Been doing alot of traveling for work. Then no boxes...then no packing tape. Was in Macon last week. I should have driven up to ATL when work was through, dropped the parts off with you, and visited some of the hobby shops up your way.

  6. Here is a link to the list of the performers. http://www.beaufortairshow.com/performers.html I can't wait. I haven't been over there in a few years.
  7. I bought a small spool of CAT3 to try out. Awesome stuff!! The combination of the wire and sheathing opens up tons of possibilities. Is the big tube at the top left of that cockpit pic miiliput?
  8. Ok...so here are the results I am getting. There is a bit of touch up left to do. I am sure someone that has been working with styrene longer than me could get a perfect result from the kit coaming. Took quite a bit of work for me to get to this point and I am not happy with the results...yet.
  9. Thanks guys, I am going to try all these tips out this weekend. The only thing I don't have is the 6lb test. I don't know why I never thought to put something on the tips of my tweezers. I have even seen coated tweezers and for some reason but never put two and two together. I do have a couple more questions. Was the jig for painting only or did it play a roll in shaping the wiring as well? How do you apply the future to the parts that are laying down...small brush and let it wick into the cavity? Is there a specific order to which you drill, paint, etc. or does it just depend on the situation? I am really looking forward to trying out the guitar strings as well. Have you tried all types of guitar strings? Steel, brass, etc. If so, are there advantages to using one over the other. I think this will help greatly since my biggest problem with lead wire is keeping the straight pieces straight. I just don't know how many E string strings I can part with. Please keep the tips coming. I would love to hear more about everyone's various methods and it would be nice to have all this info in one place. Thanks again!!! I am ready for the weekend now!!!
  10. So...I am getting better with almost every aspect of modelling with the exception of wiring, tubing, etc. I see everyone sprucing up their gear bays, engines, and pits with all kinds of interesting parts but I just can't seem to figure out what it takes. I have tried styrene, copper wire, lead wire, paper etc but can't seem to make things look right. I either have trouble bending the material because it is too hard or too soft, or I have trouble attaching it to the model. Either it won't stick or I make a mess with the glue. Anyhow, I have looked for tutorials or build logs for more info about doing this type of detailing and can't seem to find anything that is helping me. Do any of you have any good references for this? With all the various materials available, do you just have to find something that works for you and run with it? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
  11. In short...no. Me and that book have a "love hate" relationship. It is definitely an awesome reference. I have a WIP thread buried on pg 4 or 5 at the moment that shows some of the work I have done on it. There is also a link to someone elses. I am planning to update mine this weekend with pics of the finished product. It is not hard to get a decent result with a little extra styrene. I would not buy the kit just for that part though. Try posting on some forums to see if someone would be willing to part with the spare one from their 18. I would give you mine but I have already promised it to someone.
  12. http://www.britmodeller.co.uk/ Only the homepage. My guess is either dns issues or a migration.

  14. Aviad There is a large and highly detailed F-15 on sale over at the UMM-USA site. I think the price is > 18,000 USD just to give you an idea of the kind of change something like that could bring. I think he is charging $1000 for every month he spent working on it. Oh...I kinda wondered how that worked. I always though it would take alot more than 48 of them to equal 1. Yep...that is how we think...although Hubert's post has now made me question where the 1/4, 1/8, 1/10 etc.. measurements come from in RC. If you look at the cars and planes it would still take more than 4 to equal 1. I guess when your goal is to go fast you don't really care or think too much about the scale measurements.
  15. One more update for the weekend. A little cleanup. Gonna try to add the 4 stiffeners and the rivets before next weekend. Then I need to figure out how to integrate this thing into the cockpit. There is some paneling and bracing but I can't really make out the shapes and terminating locations. I have the book and I love it!
