  1. Great Work Iain. I went down the path with lots of 3D printing for my Bearcat (engine, cowling cockpit, wheels). The small successes can really draw you in, but there is so much work. It's a real test of your love for Aircraft, for sure.
  2. Peter, My 1/24 scratchbuilt Fury says (a very humble) hello! I recall you always had an eye for this plane and happy you are able to pursue it. OMG, I'm crying at what you've done. I know all those part so well but was never quite that skilled/experienced to pursue them. Recall you gave me some metal foil to help me along and it's here behind the cockpit! Will be watching more as you progress.
  3. Lots of love in there. Congrats, Tom. Great work!
  4. Congrats, Ben. I was not here to see it cross the finish line. So amazing. Really.
  5. 3 Year anniversary of this being completed and I'm only more proud of it. So fun to build. Oddly enough, this is (to date) my only completed LSP. I have lost my hobby space as kids grew and extra room was lost. Thought I'd stop back and say hi. Sorry for checking out, many of you were great support on all my efforts here and I enjoyed it so much. Carry on everyone! Such great work!
  6. Jay, I have not been here in years but wandered back to see what was up. Lots of great stuff make me cry. This is one of them. Got go check out the P-47 now.
  7. Sadly the cat fell victim of a bad plan and too much ambition. I really like the 3D stuff but then lost interest in the more conventional modeling which is considerable in this project. In over my head!
  8. I'm late too. (I do not read the GB threads, my fault). Being a scratch builder I certainly cheer you on and see a lot of talent here for sure! I love the subject!
  9. Lots of great progress. Congrats on fitting the engine in. Getting very real here.
  10. Had a good day but not a lot of time. Sanding fuselage nose now and while I like the work, I hate wearing goggles and a respirator. I've been evaluating the props and going back and forth on them, but today I rejected them and decided to edit the 3D file, correct the flaws and reprint. I had just a bit too much twist at the tip and a pitch angle that was probably below the minimum though I'm not entirely certain what the minimum is exactly. Also needed to give a little more airfoil shape to it. My penalty for my inaccuracy: $28. I kind of knew it was a hasty first effort and while no one coul
  11. Some really great scratch reports going on out there from classic forum contributors . Loving the early dev of Peter's P-51C interior and Martin's B-17 ball turret. It's helping my motivation to keep working and learning. Also reading Kevin's digital publication of Peter's #80 Spitfire project and enjoying that quite a bit when not mumbling to myself "I'm not worthy" The props came back today. Feeling like a little Grumman factory here. They cheered me up on an otherwise very busy day at work that made me very grumpy.
  12. Cool products in Model Monkey's shop especially if you like ship models . I just found it last week. Wow!
