  1. It’s a nonstarter unfortunately… reviewing info I was directed to last night, this conversion would need an entirely new fuselage as well as changes to the wing chord inboard of the engines. Way too involved for what I can take on, so I’ll hold on to hope that we see one in plastic in this lifetime
  2. Hi folks, I’m pondering adding a Tracer to my collection in 48th scale and am curious if anyone here is very familiar with the plane. Aside from the obvious radome /mounts and changing out the tail assembly for the double tail, are there other external changes that would be needed to take the Kinetic Tracker and make it a true Stoof with a roof?
  3. Hey guys, we moved to a new house late last year and I still don’t have a full build area / display area organized yet. The Handley is sitting carefully protected in my storage unit until I am confident that I have the room and organization done right. The last thing I want to do is risk the safety of the bloody paralyser!
  4. Nice!!! You can expect an order for 2 sets of trumpeter gear coming from me once they’re online
  5. Yes, the price does include the decal sheet. Can't wait to get my hands on the finished set
  6. Hey good news, I got my stash sort of organized and will add a Revell 1/32 He 162 (with Quinta cockpit and Fusion V-tail conversion) for the raffle
  7. Awesome pic! Remember though that the Wingnut kit represents an early-build Lancaster, I doubt of of those early builds would still have been in front line service by ‘44. I can’t find my copy of Richard Alexander’s Lanc book tonight for some reason but I’d start there to confirm any questionable details
  8. You could always get the ZM conversion set to make your Shinden into the jet version as another option too
  9. Hooray, another one wanting to play with printing! One thing to keep in mind is that an FDM printer like yours (using spools of various plastics and other materials to print, instead of liquid resin) cannot achieve fine details such as for inside cockpits, but they are capable of producing much larger pieces and at a cheaper cost (such as fuselage sections for 1/32 P-8 Poseidons!). The Ender series are quite popular printers so you should be good from that angle. While not the only option for CAD out there, a lot of folks including me like to use Fusion360 to design parts for printing. They have a free hobbyist license that you can renew yearly. There are also have a lot of very helpful how-to videos on youtube for using Fusion360, from the day-1 basics to advanced techniques beyond what you or I will never need to know for making models or parts for models. These videos are from both the company themselves and from other users. Good luck as you get started, no doubt others will also weigh in with their thoughts and we'll all be happy to help you as you get started Cheers, Mike
  10. Well... that's what I get for not reading every thread!
  11. If anyone wants seamless intakes for their 1/32 Tamiya F-4, I just spied someone has made a free print file available for them on Cults. Get your resin printers ready! https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/1-32-f-4-phantom-seamless-intake-tube
  12. I own a few vacs, but admittedly they're only here so that I can copy the shapes into CAD as the basis for models I want to build. I simply have no patience whatsoever for scratchbuilding even the simplest items, so building vacs is out of the question for me, but I seem to have near-infinite patience for computer designs.
  13. thanks for the update. Can we expect the vampire mk.3 or mk.5 to be released first?
  14. three variants of the A6M3? What am I missing after the models 32 and 22?
