  1. Yeah I think I get that, so it's got to be wider\deeper so that it sticks out of the vacform. When I'm nearer the time John, i'll drop you an email as I was also going to ask about getting it vacformed
  2. Hi guys, Been thinking alot lately about vacs since I got started on the Hudson. I'm going to attempted at making my own master, unsure of what aircraft yet, but it's going to be fairly large. I've got the balsa wood sorted with thanks to my dad, but I've got a question. Say i'm making a 1/32nd scale aircraft, do you have to take into account the thickness of the plastic used when vacforming (the final scale), so really I'd make the master slightly smaller? Or is that me being silly. I've no idea what i'm going to do, i'm weighing up my options with regards to engines etc to see what would be best as I wouldn't want to make engines etc! Thanks all, Radleigh.
  3. All 1/32nd scale CL-215, A-20 Havoc Hansa Jet Gulfstream 1/2/3/4 & 5
  4. You would never think so much detail goes into something so basic looking. Top notch Eric!
  5. Superb stuff, that'll be my toy if my numbers come in! I've wanted one for years.
  6. Alright Steve, I'd go for the Dauntless although I was going to say the F.3! Radleigh.
  7. LOL, Telford '14! Telford '13 i'll have the Hudson on show all being well. I'm thinking of getting the B-24 just after Christmas once the Hudson is in full flow.
  8. Hi guys, was thinking of 32nd scale using 'Tigger's' vacform kit. Decisions..
  9. Hi guys, Quck question... As title, is this a doable conversion? I assume, it's a case of changing the tail... or is there more to it? Cheers all..
  10. Hi Bob, I did once have the Revell Ju-88 to do this conversion but due to lack of work I sold all my large kits so it never got built! Needless to say it's never left my mind and seeing this really makes me want to try and tackle it. I look forward to the updates!
  11. Wow, man after my own heart! I would love this kit/conversion!!
  12. Cheers Lee, have been on that site but can't find where to download? I think I would like a Learjet 35, but if there is a large list then I will have a scout through as i'm open to all sort of aircraft, especially Russian. Eric, would be great to see the V1 progress
  13. Anyone got a Harrier for sale? I really fancy 'Tiggers' 2 seater vac conversion!
  14. Thats the one! I couldn't remember what it was. I was thinking if someone could make something for me, then turn that into a master so it could be vacformed. I'm trying to get out of carving up a load of balsa wood!
  15. Hi all, I've seen somewhere on here, but for the life of me can't find it again.. someone making a model from a machine that was done using some form of equipment and a block of vinyl(?) I think it was laser cut. Can anyone help? i'm intrigued as to how it works and weather it's an expensive process? Thanks all, Radders
  16. Hi Matt, cheers for the link I hadn't seen that before, but reading through there are a few kits there I would love to have a go at! 1/32nd C-47, F7F Tigercat and RB-57F Canberra! Maybe one day?? Regarding the detail parts, I'll be doing everything from scratch so I wouldn't buy them in the first place, cheers though!
  17. Not quite sure, ideally wanted a list to scroll through and see what took my fancy! I really want something different from the 'norm'. I quite like WW2 twin engine bombers, so I've been eyeing up the Invader etc on Combats site! Cheers for the link, You've got me thinking about making my own, it's just the time of making the aircraft in balsa! I'm sure I could do it though.
  18. Brilliant, I've also got a large(ish) vac on the go because of certain members Look forward to seeing this unfold I've thought about getting the Lanc but space is an issue at the moment, so maybe next year... Here's my build http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=41933
  19. Stunning! I love this little Migs!
  20. Afternoon all. I'm having a bit of a frenzy with vacform kits and urging to buy another. I know 'Tigger' sells them and Combat Models, but are there any other companies out there that do any? I'm looking for 32nd kits ideally... Ta all, Radleigh.
  21. Cheers Iain, I'm going to go for the Dauntless, hopefuly pick up a cheap Trumpeter one soon!
  22. Thanks all, this is my second vacform kit, my first is still a WIP too, a quick photo for all. It's a 72nd scale Sea Wolf. Untitled-11 by Rainbow 1984, on Flickr I couldn't resist yesterday, was a nice day so I set about starting this although my plan was not to just yet. The moulding is great, fuselage all sanded and fits together a treat, the nose is slightly bowed but thats not an issue. I just cut the wings out to see how big this thing is, it's sat next to a roll of 1" tape for size but measures in at just over 2' wide Granted not as big as some vacs on here though! Regarding what aircraft I'm doing, unsure on reg but I'm going for a Costal Command scheme with a lifeboat slung underneath. I'm going to carve a boat from balsa and then vacform it.... hopefully can arrange something with Tigger for that. MB9T3013 by Rainbow 1984, on Flickr Brilliant, thanks mate
  23. Only took this one, I really need a wide angle lens MB9T2851 by Rainbow 1984, on Flickr
  24. Hi guys, I'm new to the forum. After speaking to a few guys at SMW I decided to join up. I aquired this kit from John Wilkes ('Tigger' as I'm sure many know him on here) with plenty of scratch building stuff from Telford. It's going to be a slow start, especially with Christmas around the corner etc! Anyway, here's some photos. Johns done me quite a few spares of the clear parts just incase I screw up! (..there are more wing sections/cowlings I just didn't photo them) http://www.flickr.com/photos/radders84/8192036179/'> http://www.flickr.com/photos/radders84/8192036179/'>MB9T3002 by http://www.flickr.com/people/radders84/'>Rainbow 1984, on Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/radders84/8193123182/'> http://www.flickr.com/photos/radders84/8193123182/'>MB9T3003 by http://www.flickr.com/people/radders84/'>Rainbow 1984, on Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/radders84/8193122974/'> http://www.flickr.com/photos/radders84/8193122974/'>MB9T3004 by http://www.flickr.com/people/radders84/'>Rainbow 1984, on Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/radders84/8192035551/'> http://www.flickr.com/photos/radders84/8192035551/'>MB9T3008 by http://www.flickr.com/people/radders84/'>Rainbow 1984, on Flickr
