  3. Have put some time into, and am currently putting more time into, a 1/25 Tamiya Centurion conversion. Before: Now: I've been to Latrun, Israel's Armor Museum, a couple of times and have photos of the Gimel/Dalet. If you're interested in the photos I can burn you a CD and send it to you. All I need is your address. If not, this is another source I'm using. https://www.sabingamartin.com/books/simbk_17.html Sincerely, Mark
  4. 'Armoured Models out of the UK' Got a link? Thank you. Sincerely, Mark
  5. Yes. I solved the problem by lying a paper towel on my model and saturating the paper towel with windex. The ammonia in windex softens the clear acrylic, the acrylic is absorbed into the paper towel, the paper towel dries, and when removed, so is the clear acrylic. I posted pictures and a description of this process but cannot find them. Maybe someone else can. Good luck. Sincerely, Mark

  10. I'm working on a paper model-to-plastic model project right now, tho not an airplane. I'm working on converting a 1/25 paper LVT(A)-1 to plastic. https://www.super-hobby.com/products/LVT-A-1AMTank.html I scanned everything, instructions and parts. Basically, I traced parts using Adobe Illustrator, making dimensional adjustments, copied parts as needed, bought a plug in for Adobe Illustrator (Silhouette Connect) so I could send images to my Silhouette to cut them out. Now I'm gluing together. ''The major problen I am working on is how to get the wing to have the tapering thickness (difficult when one has a convex surface on the top and a convex shape on the bottom. Also trying to have the concave shapr between the ribs. This was easy when I was making models in 1/16 and 1/8 scales out of balsa wood back in the 1950's. One covered the ribs with "tissue paper" or "silkspan" or even silk and then sprayed the wing with "dope". ["Harry, you dope. Stop sitting on my model!").' I don't understand the comment about wings having tapering thicknesses, unless it refers to the leading edge. As for the concave shape, if your structure is plastic you are going to have a sturdy frame, so your skin can still be paper, otherwise .005 sheet can be pressed into sewrvice. Sincerely, Mark
