  1. Wow. Fantastic looking build. Nice work!
  2. Yah, non essential is banned, but business and emergency service workers are able to cross. I was just hoping someone may have another idea I hadn't thought of.
  3. This is a bit of a long shot I know, but I have a number of parcels at my U.S. mailbox that I'm not able to get forwarded to Canada unless I want to pay an arm and a leg. Most of the items I can wait for, but a couple of things I need ASAP. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get parcels brought across the border with the current covid closures at a reasonable cost? The mailbox quoted my over $200 to have one medium sized parcel shipped which was just to much for my blood. Any ideas out there? Thanks.
  4. I’ve been stumped with figuring out a way to replicate a knurled surround and there you go and come up with the solution! Great work Wolf!
  5. Just received the same email as well.
  6. Looking forward to see how this builds out. Thanks for posting!
  7. Very nice. Love the color scheme!
  8. Interesting comparison. Looking forward to more from you, Chuck.
  9. Got it. I'll do some tests and see what I come up with. Thanks.
  10. How much gloss did you add to thew paint roughly? Thanks guys.
  11. Has anyone done this? Just wondering if it would transform a normally satin finish to more of a gloss I’m looking for. I know I can spray a clear gloss over the satin gunze to get to the same destination, but if I can add some gloss to the paint when I add the thinner to airbrush, it would save me some time for a particular technique (simulating wood grain) I’m trying to figure out. Thanks in advance, Chuck.
  12. Glad to see another build from you being posted. Looking forward to the next update, Chuck.
  13. I'm did some research comparing the thicknesses of various tin foils. Looks like aluminum leaf is .0005mm thick, standard household foil is roughly .016mm and heavy duty foil .02mm thick. I'm not so sure now I need the extra thin stuff! Let me do some experiments and see if the regular foil is going to give the look I'm after. Stand by.
  14. I'm looking for a thinnert than usual foil to use to simulate cracked leather. Regular tin foils is too thick and leaf is way to thin. Any ideas?
  15. Has anyone come across thin aluminum foil? I’m looking for something like the foil you find in a cigarette pack. I though about aluminum leaf, but that’s just too thin. Any ideas? Thanks.
  16. Looking great as always with your builds. Thanks for posting.
  17. Aviattic makes some very nice wood grain decals as well. I have Uschi’s which are also pretty good, but Aviattic seems to take it to another level. Upon closer inspection of both the uschi wood grain is a bit pixelated but to the casual viewer they both look good. My two cents.
  18. I want to order Achim Engels PDF book on the Fokker Dr.I and have sent him an email. He says on his webpage that he doesnt use banks, so I'm woundering if anyone on here has ordered one of his PDF books and what the process was like? Thanks.
