    1:1 scale modelling on the cheap

    Apparently he told his family that he had an appointment with a spacecraft and was leaving to live with aliens and was never seen again. In reality his truck was found on the side of a mountain and had human remains inside..it had been blown up in a remote location. It appears that whoever was in it had committed suicide. His P40 was purchased from his estate (off of his parents) and had parts of a Blenheim fuselage and an epenage from a Harvard (t-6 Texan)..but was properly restored to flying condition as N7205A..”old exterminator”

    1/32 CH-53E / MH-53E - 3D printed / scratchbuilt

    Scuse my ignorance but what’s the difference? Aside from the color, fuel tanks and refueling probe is there much else?

    B-24 Ditching test

    It had lots of horrible reputations..like one cannon shell through the spar between the fues and either engine 2 or 3 and it was bye-bye wing

    Can you believe this???

    Probably loading ammo into the drum, then feeding it into the gun and loading it ready for a sortie I’m not sure if it’s the same as the A-10 but you can see the gun turning as the ammo is fed into the drum. Traditionally if the gun rotates the pin fires..I’m not sure how you make that safe other than making sure no live rounds are in the gun while it’s turning??

    1/32 Marauder

    So the word on the street was that 3D printing used a material that when combined with the heat of the process makes the finished product not long lasting..is that true? Or is there a trick to get a long lasting model?

    Its definitely there when the aircraft is flying..wings have obvious oil canning when there's flying pressure over the wing surface (also what an ungodly racket!)

    https://www.urbanghostsmedia.com/2016/06/avro-lancaster-replica-dam-busters-remake/ this is is a bit of the back story..Weta Workshops and Peter Jackson went to MOTAT in Auckland to try use their Lanc to take detailed measurments from but MOTAT weren’t keen to have the Weta people crawling all over her. So apparently a Canadian group with a Lanc let them go ahead and got some generous $$ for their troubles. (Of course Weta and Wingnut are pretty much hand in hand)
