  1. Brilliant work lain, even though you say you are learning new techniques you are making it look easy. Really enjoying your work!
  2. Great tip, thanks so much for posting it!
  3. Absolutely jaw dropping work here Peter, everytime I look in you are pushing the boundaries of scale modeling beyond what I ever thought possible. Also, didn't expect to see Solartex mentioned here, previously I had only seen that at the other forum I frequent.
  4. Bravo Tim, love your work on this one! Those temporary winter schemes are tough to pull off but you nailed it.
  5. Wow, great photos Thomaz! Thank you so much, that's exactly what I was looking for.
  6. I am working on a P-38, and would like to try to replicate the patchy look on the OD where the sealing tape was applied for shipping them overseas. I have seen photos showing this effect, but I am not sure how much of the airframe was taped up like this. In the photo below, you can see where the tape was applied over the nose panels: My question is, was there was a standard way of doing it, or did it vary depending on who was taping the airframe? I have searched for a photo showing a fully taped aircraft or a diagram showing how much of the airplane was covered this
  7. Hey Jennings! As much as I would love to support this sheet, I would have to pass on it. I have used many of your decal sheets (and have many more in the stash as they are AWESOME) but I would not choose any of the subjects on this sheet.
  8. Thanks for the clarification, very interested in some of these for myself!
  9. I like that gear, sorry if I missed where you got them from?
  10. VERY impressive work, never saw anyone turn a 1/32 cowl before. I'll be watching this one!
  11. NICE!!! Can't wait to see what you come up with, no mater what I am down for these.
  12. Are any of those schemes from the Aleutian campaign? I would love to model one from that theater.
  13. A CAD render of the engine, but I don't what engine it is. An inline 6, something German? Looks a little bit like the engine in the Stahltaube.
  14. Yeah, no thank you! I'll take shoveling mountains of snow over those critters any day.
  15. I'll be ordering two of these sheets the moment they are available!
  16. Karim- I followed the link and like the others had no problem at all following along. I am happy to see that the accompanying photos to this build are not lost, it would be a real shame for all of us to lose the WIP photos on this build! I am staggered by the quality of your work as well as the photography, and doubly so as a lot of the work is done from a hotel room! Brilliant work Karim, looking forward to the next installment!
  17. +1 Dave is a great guy, and will get you what you need. Thank you Karim for the detailed explanation on using your Silhouette for cutting the decal material, makes perfect sense to me! I have gone back a couple of times now to re-read through your thread, mind boggling stuff here. The fact you are building this "on the road" makes it even better, if that is even possible! Stunning work.
  18. Hello Kirk! Good to see you here building this one, a subject which I hope to do myself very soon! I have wanted to build this aircraft since first seeing photos of it in this scheme. I am looking forward to seeing how that KASL exhaust fits the kit, as I just got one of those myself. Signed on!
  19. Now THIS is fantastic stuff! I have seen amazing builds of WWI subjects here, but yours (both this one and the D.VII) stand above all IMHO. It's builds like this which inspire to try these WNW kits. I have several now, just have not yet built one. Your painting skills, especially on areas often overlooked like exhausts, really make them stand out. A question if you will on how you did the decals on the Silhouette plotter? Did you scan the decal sheet, then import it into the Silhouette program and trace around it? I like what you have accomplished, and want to try something similar
  20. Preordered two of the new Fokker D.VII's so I can avoid paying scalpers prices on Ebay a month from now!
  21. I'll third that one! I do understand not wanted to repeat ideas too often, but like Peter said there has been an abundance of WWI releases the past couple of years.
  22. Beautiful as always Mike! Tried doing that exact same aircraft a few years back, didn't work out and ended up being repainted as white 12. Always a pleasure seeing your work my friend.
  23. Cheers Wolf! I am excited to see one of these here as a WIP, watching you build one is an extra bonus. Can I ask which boxing you chose, and have you selected a particular scheme yet? I have just finished cleaning up all of the parts in my "Clerget" boxing, and noticed a few potential issues which you might want to check on yours? I purchased six WNW Camels, and three of those arrived with broken A26 parts. In each case, the rear strut was broken off right at the spot where the strut changes angles to meet the upper wing. I was able to get two replacements from WNW, will have to try a
