  1. This took awhile, but it was an on again/off again type thing. But now it's done. I plan to take more photos with a more suitable backdrop, but for now... here's the EVA. Astronaut (and Mission Commander) John Young is flying the CM; LEM Pilot Charlie Duke is in the hatch (his suit is dirty on purpose--can't get the moon dust out easily). Ken Mattingly (CM Pilot) is retrieving film canisters from the SIM Bay.
  2. Thanks. That hatch was a real PITA to sand (the casting was a bit rough) and then paint. the windows are that Crystal Kleer stuff--I couldn't manage with plastic that didn't look dirty or scuffed afterward. there's an inner and outer window. Next come the astronauts.
  3. Weird. It was there this morning. I'll try again.
  4. A bit more progress. Hatch and EVA camera installed, as well as the EVA light. Probably should have thought of a way of LEDing the light, but oh well.

    Dang! Really cool!
  6. BTW, anybody have ideas on where to get 1/32 astronaut space suit decals? There's a site called JBOT that used to do them--but apparently the owner had a stroke in 2018 and isn't filling orders anymore. I can't find anything anywhere else. TW
  7. Thanks! Astronauts will be up next. Leaving off the antenna array until the end--because if I put it on now I'll just break it off... still touching up to do on the CM and elsewhere, but a lot of the heavy lifting is done. Also leaving off engine bell--easier to work with this thing without it on there right now. Also found a stand from Polar Lights that I think will support all this plastic and resin.
  8. More progress. Finally doing the decals, which are excellent from Space Model Systems (CultMan TV has them). They are delicate, however, so use caution.

    1:32 Sopwith Camel of Barker

    Amazing work! Tim W.
  10. I just want to say I find the Rube Goldberg main gear on this aircraft annoying. But I got them on! Some more small bits need to be added, then some touching up and gloss coat and decaling. Then the real work of detailing and weathering shall begin!

    MIG-15 Bis BG Air Force Trumpeter 1/32

    Wow! That is the ultimate MiG-15. Very nice details! Tim W.
  13. Yes, the light isn't the best. It'll be more obvious once I do the sludge treatment!
