  1. I'm usually a Helo kinda Guy, but picked this up for $10 recently and thought it would make a good break from flappy things. Cheers Andrew Mac
  2. What color is your ceiling ? if its white try pointing ALL your lights towards the ceiling and bumping your ISO to compensate for the reduction light. or chase down / make a soft box. Though to get the details to pop you will need some side lighting. Try having the bounced light as the main light and setting the side light at around 1/2 to 1/4 stop less than the main light. Popping the contrast in post will help but getting it right in the camera is always better.
  3. Yes I'm a bit miffed about the silvering, That one is the worst, but looks OK from 3 feet :) so I will leave it as it is.
  4. It's done.... Just to give an idea of size .. Cheers Andrew...
  5. Your 46 is a totally different level of build than this Everett, I don't have quite the same level of AMS that you do :) The Scheme is from the Kit, with a few liberties taken to make it easier to paint. Cheers Andrew
  6. Tamiya tape and buckles made from fine fuse wire.
  7. Foil from the top of a baby formula can... and a frame made of evergreen.
  8. A big move forward... with lots of masking The Orange is Citadel Blood Red with Yellow added. Just the black around the exhausts to do and a clearcoat.
  9. A little more done... Quietly plugging away, but have been very busy over the last few weeks Photographing a Celtic Music Festival. My Photography site Still have about 30 gig of video to workup before I can call it done.
  10. If you have photoetch for 1:48th or 1:32 scan/scale then print it on to some quality paper,
  11. I have another 46 to build so will document the process in photos.
  12. Here's my latest project, Academy's CH-46 1:48th.. Need the rotors folded to save space. A bit of work but I'm happy with the result. Andrew MacKay

  14. Thanks Guys, Just started cutting plastic on a CH-46 :)
