  1. Really nice job! I hope the one I've had sitting 80% done for 2 years turns out as nice...when I get around to finishing it!
  2. Dang, too broke right now to do it. I'll have to wait and hope it doesn't go up!!
  3. Ooof...been there. Kind of a pain in the arse, but I have to hand it to my credit card company - they were very helpful and got is sorted very quickly.
  4. Good grief, when will this thing be released?
  5. Hi Peter, I read through your great tutorial threads, but I just can't seem to find anyone who sells 0.06mm (.0024 inch) litho plate material. Any suggestions?
  6. I do have a digital microscope, though I haven't used it for model building yet. Mostly for coin collecting, on the rare occasion I do that anymore. It works well, and might do for what you need - https://amazon.com/gp/product/B00XNYXQHE/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Tim
  7. Hi Peter, I was referring to SLA type 3D printing (such as with a printer like an Anycubic Photon or Phrozen Sonic)- done with photoreactive liquid resin. If you have been having parts printed for you, it was most likely done using this method. There are quite few of us on LSP who are using it now, including pros like Steve at Model Monkey, though his printers are VERY high end. SLA allows for much higher detail and quality, and the resin parts can be used directly in the build - no need to recast in resin unless you wish to make large quantities of copies. Those exhausts would have been the sort of thing that would turn out amazing with an SLA printer, though I'm doubtful it could improve on your finished product, as your quality is second to none. The only advantage is that it most likely would have been much quicker and less tedious than scratchbuilding them. Again, your skinning abilities are inspiring, and continue to push me toward trying it myself. Is there a thread where you describe your process so I can give it a try? Tim
  8. He's obviously not a model builder - there are no panel lines and rivets.......
  9. Sounds like you should have a "going out of business" sale once a year or so!
  10. I'm not much for group builds, but I think it would be fun to have a monochrome build - all black and white schemes, as a few of our members have done beautifully here. Learning a new technique that most of us haven't tried might be interesting. The NMF idea might do this as well, providing it required the use of foil.
