  1. It may have overheated and locked the switch. Unplug it and wait a few hours, then plug it back in and give it a try. It happens to my second-hand Sil-Air. Bast of luck!
  2. The beautiful consistency of the finish is remarkable- cheers, Carlos!
  3. Glad to see you getting a break at last, and hope you can ramp down to one job, Steve!
  4. THANKS, GUYS! You can grab an e-copy right now if you want to see the whole thing. I'm gonna do that right now!
  5. Great pic- welcome! I used to live in Redondo Beach- miss the weather!
  6. It's been a while, but my 1/48 Revell (ICM) Dornier Do215 B-5 Night Fighter is being published- right now! I'm absolutely pumped. That radar is soldered brass, and the cockpit is 85% scratch built. Here's a couple of images from my article:
  7. Marvelous work and supreme attention to detail- cheers, Gabor!
  8. That's heartbreaking- you have my sincere sympathies, Ryan.
  9. Molodyets, Sergei! Well done!
  10. Fresh from Ukraine! I ordered these some weeks ago when Wingsy announced that they were still kickin' and shipping kits. The outer box was kinda dinged, but the kits are immaculate. Cardstock box tops with stapled corners, corrugated bottoms with a folding lid that keys into the front sides. All have an etched fret, comprehensive decals, beautiful instructions and lovely sprues chock full of detail. The 109 and Sonia have canopy masks, and the 109 has a beautiful full color insert of the color options, while the Claude has an option of a transparency for the instrument gauges as well as decals
  11. I've made some orders- hope they come in, but if not at least I've helped. Here's Dora wings new FB profile pic- you've got to admire their guts!
  12. I'm back! My vision isn't perfect, but I've had some improvement, and am on track to try some new therapies. Here's what I managed to pull off in the meantime- enjoy!
  13. I just tried it turned all the way down and it seems quite slow. Also, laying a finger on the chuck slows it down quite easily, so the plastic's resistance to the bit may well be a factor. I've never melted plastic with it unless I accidentally left it set too high.
