    HKM 1/32 Lancaster Kit review

    I don't understand German but I still basically understood it. The kit looks pretty much like what I expected. What I've seen elsewhere of the Merlins look pretty spartan. It clearly has endless possibilities for super-detailers and the after market industry and I can already see where I would like to see more detail but it will still make an excellent build right out of the box. I just wish WN hadn't muddied the waters. Thanks for posting.

    Anyone here capable of doing CAD work for 3D printing?

    Yes, feel free to contact me.

    Great Wall Hobby P-40B Tomahawk in 1/32

    I hope it's better than the existing early P-40 because I'd love one.

    and now, again, some civilians by Reedoak

    The old school sculptors have nothing to worry about. I've been fooling around this and it's not that straight forward. Photogrammetry is the preferred scanning method, at this time, which requires roughly 90 cameras. There are ways to get the 90 photos of your subject without buying 90 cameras. The photos then need to be processed into a cg model called a mesh. That mesh need to be cleaned up using another computer program which requires some practiced skills. The final mesh or model now needs to be 3D printed. Some artists are sculpting figures digitally on a computer without any scanning but that's not what these figures are. The other thing to realize is that you can't mix scanned figures with sculpted ones because they look so different. On the other hand, old school sculptors just need epoxy or clay, wire and magnification.

    This has nothing to do with large scale planes (maybe there's one in the climax) but you have to see this. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/11/theater/king-kong-broadway-musical.html?login=email&auth=login-email

    Revell USA rises like a Phoenix....

    I have fond memories of the old kits and I have a few, but my problem with a lot of the reissues is that many of the molds are worn out.

    NEW! Free manual for applying Archer Rivets

    Very informative. Thank you.
  10. If you have access to take more photos, I would recommend photogrammetry to get the dimensions followed by 3D printing.
