Oh I see now.  I've never worked with a resin kit before. I just can't muster the courage!

I have worked with pl;enty of resin AM parts and built 2 resin engines. You just have to take thing slower and check everything. I have some 72nd resin aircraft kits, i will get to one of those soon.

Martin, that looks like a repurposed bread truck!  Nice work.

 

The camel looks real good too.  I can see the extra effort going in to it.

Bish your Landy build is impressive, great job!

Theuns, I love the wood on your Camel, another great job!

All the builds so far are amazing, everyone should be proud of their builds.

I have been adding details to the cockpit and created a compass, more to follow.

your shipmate,

Ziggy

Bish, thanks for the complement!  I have to make three gauges for the cockpit, I will show the details when I get to them.

Theuns, how did you do such a great job rigging?  Do you use wire, thread or something else?

your shipmate,

Ziggy

Enjoying this build and taking any opportunity in the cold evenings to make advances. This kit comes with a large piece of PE which needs to be used in the construction, it all fits together very well but is time consuming but worth taking the time.      " alt="" />

Hi Bish, The FSM page is playing up on me again so I am posting this one quickly before I lose connectivity. Need to put the Staghound on hold, parts missing and are being replaced. Am I good to go with this one:



Would be my first attempt at figure painting in 45 years :) With regards Svenne

Yes,
it is a cool little kit.

Sadly my copy is badly warped...

If it would have been the lower tub I could have glued a rod in place but how do I fix this issue?
Will try hot water and a hairdryer any other ideas or suggestions are appreciated!

Maybe I should not be surprised, the box has travelled with me for 8 years.

With regards

Svenne, that is a good bit of warpage there.  I would correct it after it is fixed solid to the hull,with some gentle finger pressure pushing it past it's proper alignment.  I'd be hesitant of trying this with the problem piece on it's own in hot water or via hairdryer,  as it could create new bends elsewhere - but if someone has already tried this option successfully, it would be good to hear.

 

regards,

Jack

I'm going to leave it to Jack, since I'm not that knowlegable about how to deal with this. I'll just say good luck!!!

Yep, that entry is fine Svenne. That is a bad bit of warpage. I think i would go with Joe's suggestion.

Started coming up with a plan for the magazine holders on the outsides of the cockpit.  This pic shows a 1/32 scale cockpit with the holders. The kit only has a holder on one side and no detail showing magazines. I will remove the kit holder and scratch build one for each side.

your shipmate,

Ziggy

Got the snatch painted up. Took a few goes until i was happy with the colour. After painted, it got a couple of coats of Alclad aqua gloss.

And then the decals. These went on well, first time i have used AA decals. These were followed by some more Aqua gloss to protect the decals.

Next up some weathering and detail painting.

Theuns, a fine example of the Camel - very well done! Yes

If I followed the chart history correctly over at Scalemates, the kit you used has it origins back to Aurora, a 1956 tooling - so that makes your results that much more impressive.

Jack

Great Job Theuns!

Bish, looking good!  I do not understand decals, but you are not yet finished and maybe I missed something on an earlier post.

your shipmate,

Ziggy
