    1/32 Marauder

    What program did you use for the design? I've been using Inventor for my BN-2, but it has some limitations I haven't yet come up with a workaround for..

    Matchbox/Revell 1/32 Tiger Moth

    I built one many years ago as a kid. It had pride of place on my shelf until an ex-friend picked it up and threw it across the room, after wondering out loud if it would fly... I have three in the stash, one original Matchbox, and the other two Revell repops. There are soooooo many civvy schemes available that I'm sure I'll pick up a few more as I see them. Following this one - I'm very interested in picking up what can be done with these kits.

    1/32 BN-2 3D print scratch build. Is this too much for me?

    Following...lol I've got an ANET-A8 with a few mods and more to come. Out of the box it doesn't print all that well..

    I'm after a couple of engines and mounts for the 1/32 Extra to put into my BN-2.  How much (roughly) would it cost to post to Australia?

    1/32 BN-2 3D print scratch build. Is this too much for me?

    So today I mucked about with the 3D printer and made the first nose pieces. As this was an experiment, I wasn't too fussed about the quality, because there is a bit of a learning curve to getting this right, and we (me and my son) still need to upgrade some parts of the printer. Anyhow, there is a bit of splitting between the layers, and they're warped (which is a by-product of using tape on the print bed...one of the upgrades we're doing..), but they've shown me areas where I need to improve the shape. So kind of a success.. Unfortunately, they're not good enough for me to glue together, sand and paint - the warping leaves a massive gap!

    Some more work...I've started the nacelles and made a partial cutout for the windscreen. Definitely not to scale - the nacelles are way too small, and the cockpit window is just a guess at the moment. Really need to find my small steel ruler!
