    HK B-17...D??? 23/9 the "aisle stand" :)

    Oh my gosh, this is totally stunning! As chance would have it, I saw this video about the Photon yesterday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YrUQOYLoK0 And now I see your impressive results with this machine. I could not hold myself back, and 10 minutes ago, I ordered this printer for just 400 € Sometimes, I also have problems with some 3d-files, that look nice in the CAD software, but are not properly working in the slicing software. Sometimes, it helps when I load the files up to this online repair service: https://service.netfabb.com/login.php Cheers Alex

    Oh, this is great - and confusing. I see aluminium, with some blue anti-corrosion coat , black, interior green, and some ... maybe olive drab. This can only go wrong

    Talking about the interior, apparently many areas were padded with diamond pattern fabric. I think I can do a littel cheating and cover those areas with some (2d) printed drawings

    Thank you all for your encouraging words Not at all, very interesting discussion. Talking about the Marauder, since threre are some news about the Resin2Detail kit, I'm very motivated to get this one finished. Sooner or later, I'll have to make a decision about the interior colors. From what I have read so far, I don't think that everyting was interior green over all (like in the museeum machine). The facts seem to be a bit unclear about the Marauder. I'm thinking about doing everything behind the cockpit/radio operater section in aluminium (like I've already done with the bomb bays). For the forward fuselage starting at the radio operator section, I think about olive drab. Do you have any clues what might be accurate Alex

    In my little tiny display case I built some time ago (75 cm deep, 140 cm wide). Predictive planning is paying off I wonder if I manage to resist until the D-version,, to which I'm really looking for. Alex

    150 € for such a beast? That's a steal. I'll get one for sure

    Thanks for your kind comments! Yes, these are styrene plates I bought some yeas ago when I was dreaming of a Ju-52. It didn't happen, and propably won't happen since I think HKM is working on this one. Hi Matt, most parts are printed with a material called HIPS, which means High Impact Polystyrene, and can be perfectly glued with normal cement. Some parts of the wings are printed with a material called PLA, which is more difficult to glue. But I found a glue from Pattex which works pretty well on PLA as well on styrene. http://www.pattex.de/do-it-yourself-mit-pattex-klebstoffe-produkte-new/pattex-klebstoffe/spezialkleber/spezialkleber-modellbau.html

    Little progress. I've been busy on the bomb bay(s). The bomb bay walls are not very clean, with some scratches here and there. But most areas will be pretty invisible at the end, so no problem for me Bombs come from the spare box. Left ones are from the Revell P-51. I think the four ones on the right were from some Trumpy kit. I enlarged the fins a bit so they will match with the other ones. Don't know where the two partly painted ones in the midle came from. Cheers Alex
