  1. Hi . Hope some one can help me. I have been trying to get in touch with some one at shape ways to help me get back in to my account. Does any one have any ideals. Seems they don't want you to contact them because there isn't a phone number at all. Wanted to order the pieces for my SRB jbut have forgotten my infor. Thanks and hope some one can help me.Its okay now shapeway finally fixed the problem. Gary
  2. Yes sir . Was a lot of fun and really adds the detail even through you can't see much when you mount the shuttle, but thats ok I know its there. Gary
  3. Hi Ernie. Sorry about the delay but life sometimes gets in the way. I got it in fine detail plastic which cost a few dollars more, but it worth it to get the detail. Gary
  4. Hi Guys. Here's a small update on the cockpit and figures and finally got around to putting on some paint for the figures and seat's. Also you can see the decal that I down loaded from the site that Homer gave me. She is moving along but at a snail's pace. Gary space shuttle windows (7)
  5. Hi Homer. Can you show me or tell me what or where I can find the colors that the seats, flight deck and crew should be. I know I seen it some well be don't seem to be having to much luck finding it at the moment. Thank you sir. Gary
  6. Hi Homer. I finally got around to applying some paint to the windows and it didn't come out to bad. I painted it once and like you it didn't work out. Having another one coming gives me time to work with this one and figure out the best way to do it. The other one will be installed and then painted. Added a couple of photos so let me know what you think. Gary space shuttle windows (4)
  7. I could go for one or two my self, if and when you have them done sir. Gary
  8. Hi Pete. Out standing job on your payload sir. Haven't seen any updates in a while and was hoping you had more photo's of you masterpiece. Am hoping to copy what you have done and add it to my new shuttle I started to work on. Like your self I am downloading the AXM paper payload bay of this and enlarge it, that is as soon as i figure out how much to increase the size to. Thanks for the outstanding work and hope to see you work in the future. Gary
  9. Thanks Homer. Well, clipping the wrong parts just gave me a reason to buy another set but don't tell the misses. Guess you could call it enthusiasm I just call it having a lot of fun adding good detail parts to my models, sort of like that feeling you have when the work day comes to a end and you just can't wait to get home and back to work on the project. The mask for the windows should come in handed. . The one window that I added, looked like it had good clear view to the flight deck but won't know for sure till it's all together. Are you planning on lighting up your flight deck and if so what hard ware are you plan on using. Seems a shame to put all that detail and not seeing any of it. I also want to light up the payload bay. I just order a payload bay from real space models , he posted on his site that he will be shipping them at the end of November. Had a lot of fun adding the payload bay to my last shuttle and does help bring the bay to life as I call it.
  10. Hi Bill and thank you. Attempt is a good word for my build. If you make any more 3D parts for the shuttle let me know sir and will add them. ;o)Here is one showing some work on the windows and the clear film am using. Not much but a start.Probably going to lite her cockpit up and was wondering if any one has any ideal about were to get some hard ware for doing that. Thanks again. Gary space shuttle windows (2)
  11. Hi Homer. Just to give you a up date on the windows I used some clear lay film .005 and seems to fit in place. Add a link so you can see how it looks. I only added it for the first window on the left side, all the rest are still empty. Gary space shuttle windows (2)
  12. Thank you sir. The 3D printed parts really add a lot of detail to models and a real joy to add them. I do thank those folks the design and spend the time making them, they have my highest respect. Am hoping they will design even more parts and pieces for our models.
  13. Hi Guys. Figure I would add some photo's of the last shuttle I built along with my 1/32 LM and the new shuttle that I started. Hoping I can figure out how to do the size and then we will be off to the races. Gary space shuttle (12)
  14. Hi Homer. Just to let you know sir I finally got the all of the parts and they are great, just what one needs to really make the windows pop along with the tile. I sort of made a boo boo on the cap and cutr off the insert pieces but I order another one with all the parts and pieces. Have put a little paint on them but don't think the tiles come out like yours do in the picture. Have to put very fine coats on them or all that great detail will be gone. Thank you and now I have a second set coming so will practrice on this set. and keep them for the next shuttle stack I get in the future. Not to steal the great parts and pieces but thought I would show you the 1/32 shape ways LM that Vincent Meens designed. I really enjoyed building this. Now back to the great shuttle parts to paint and install in my shuttle. Well Homer thought I was going to upload a couple of photos but have to figure that part out sir. Be back l Gary. Not the same as seeing the photo here but maybe I figure it out before to much longer. space shuttle (12)
  15. Thanks Bill. Might be a little while before I need them and will keep a eye out for them. Gary
  16. Hi Bill. I was looking for the SRB aft skirts with separation motors on shapeway at your shop and can't find them. Am hoping that I can stll get them, that is if your still doing them. Started another shuttle stack and want to add them to this one to. Thank you sir and look forward in hearing from you. Gary
  17. Hot Dog, are you selling these decals now? Gary
  18. Hello every one. I am looking for the 1/72 real space model space shuttle pay load detail set. I am doing another shuttle stack and want to add this item to the build. Enjoyed the last one I purchased from him and hope to find another one. Thank you and look forward to the help in finding one. Gary Well seems real space models are once again selling their payload bays for the Mongram space shuttle. Thank goodness.
  19. looks better every time I look at it Bill and can't wait to install it in my shuttle sir. Looking fwd to seeing what you come up with next. Wish I had some thing to add but really enjoy what your doing. Gary
  20. Looks good Scott. Hoping mine will look as good, that ia as soon as I can get back to work on her. Gary
  21. Hi Bill. Here's a photo of why I don't think I get done any time soon. Figure out that after the first couple of hundreds, probably be seeing them in my sleep. Thanks to EGT95 for giving me ideals and such as your self a push to do this. Biggest reason is the decals doesn't cover the back end like they should and wasn't happy with their dry fit. Gary
  22. Hi Bill. This is great sir and I am so impressed with your drawings that it is a honer to install them on my shuttle. One thing that model shuttles have needed for a while is good outstanding and different payload bays even if they add a couple of dollers to the cost and could never figure out why there isn't more but you sir have done a outstanding job on doing this. Don't believe my shuttle is going to get done any time soon and will be adding this as soon as I can purchase them, no pressure sir none at all. Thank you. Gary
  23. Hi Bill and Hotdog. I do believe am going to do Atlantis, sort of fell in love with her and it probably be in her later years. I have tile decals that I purchased from Ed some time ago off of ebay a while back and was saving them for this build. Well guess am buying some more paints Hotdog, probably get the ones from Alclad. All of the reviews of them say they are really good, for air brushing. They seem to have just what I need for her tail end. Thank you sir. Bill thank you,and maybe one day I will go back to work on her. As far as the photo that helps a lot and will come in handy when I do finally get around to painting this part. Thanks guys. Gary
