    Hi Tom - ANOTHER awesome build...Question: I tried to look at larger images in your article that I thought I would find on Flickr, but it says This photo is private. Did you intend that to be the case? Thanks! Enjoying another great build! Clark

    WOW! I think we have reached the cost - benefit threshold and now can we can all get a high rez machine for a reasonable price! Keep pushing the envelope!

    Hi Alex - good stuff there with the 3D printed parts....please take a close-up of the detail on the ammo feed....Stuff looks good from normal viewing range!
  6. Juraj - great beginning to an ambitious project! What/whose plans are you using for dimensional accuracy? Hope you can keep the momentum for this awesome project! Clark Cone - a Yank in King Arthur's Court!

    HPH Fw-189 A-1 Uhu

    There's an old idiom that rightly applies here: you made "a silk purse out of a sow's ear"....my faith in HpH products as been improved. Can't wait to see the A-20 and DC-3! Excellent craftsmanship here, Jan! Clark
  9. Nice work! Question about your nose gear bay detail: that compressed air bottle - where did you get that valve? Did you make it? If so, from what. That looks elegant. Enjoying the show - keep at it! Clark

    Hi Brian - just got caught up on this awesome build! I wanted to ask you a few questions about your Silhouette Portrait...I have one and I am about ready to try it out but my research has raised some issues that you apparently did not encounter - or, if you did, you found a solution...In short, other Portrait users I've read about encounter issues with the cutter blade not cutting a straight or accurate line - even using the vector software. Did you encounter any inaccuracies in cutting the Oramask 810? Judging from the stars you cut out for the LG wheel hubs, they look pretty accurate to me. I could not detect any issues with the checker board masks, either... I guess what I want to know is if there were any issues you encountered cutting those masks and what you did to mitigate the issue...Again, spot on modelling! Clark

    Maybe some help here? I'm going to assume that this is fair use of John's video posted on his Facebook page - he vacs PETG in this vid: https://www.facebook.com/john.wilkes.338/videos/1614569725225016/ Clark
