  1. The last several projects have been LSPs, this seems small.
  2. Well, that was easier than I expected. Two different scribers and a little judicious use of a photoetch saw blade. The PE part isn't damaged at all.
  3. It's a whole lot easier said than done. I used epoxy because I didn't want a slight bump to knock it out.
  4. Hmmm, per Detail and Scale #48 the SBD-1 and SBD-2 has floatation air bags for use in the event of ditching. Since there are two of the canisters and restraining straps, I wonder if that might be the purpose of the canisters? Dave
  5. Hmmm, that's what the Eduard instructions show. I've had a hard time finding photos with it open. This is from an old Detail and Scale #50.
  6. Update, cockpit parts painted. Engine painted.
  7. This is the original release of this kit. I have a 3D model of the Vindicator that I started several years ago and I was going to get back to it. I've used this kit along with numerous books and drawings (Ginter, Squadron 1122, Aircraft Pictorial #2, online photos, photos from NNAM that I took, and stuff from Avialogs.) I thought building this kit might get me started again. As if I don't have enough going already. Dave
  8. Yeah, it would. I have a Curtis SOC model too. I should drag it out and retexture it in SP and then work on STLs for that too.
  9. Something different, everything is digitally created. The "Dave" was modeled in Modo and textured in Substance Painter. The back plates were created in Terragen. I'm planning on working toward altering the modeling to be able to 3D print a 1/32 "Dave". #4 aircraft from Haruna at Midway. (At least my interpretation of the markings.) "Dave"s over China. Dave
  10. Another update, wings and tail.
  11. It's getting there Maru. I'm trying out some of Woody's Dzus fasteners on the fuselage. They go on easy. The only concern at the moment is whether one sheet is enough. Dave
  12. Thanks, didn't realize that I was typing with fat fingers. These photos were from Thursday when there was only one overflow location and it only contained ~half a dozen aircraft. The WWI aircraft were in a different location.
  13. My wife is already making plans for next year. She has places in Texas that she wants to visit.
