    Rescaling decals

    Percentage to enlarge a set of 1/48 scale decale to 1/32? I'm going to scan a set and try to enlarge them for my personal use. I'm great at Algebra and Geometry, but simple math and percentages kills me. ;-) Thanx, Tracy

    CJ.. consider a pin perpendicular off the gluing surface for better security gluing to the fuselage. I'll drill the receptacles into the fuselage. Tracy
  3. Conversion to 1/100 scale in the foreseeable future? Tracy

    Sorry for the delay! Now I can't find MY digital caliper... I marked up 1mm from the top of the aft dome windows, then used a set of two-point dividers and read off the metric side of a standard ruler. The spread is 39mm. Tracy
  5. WOW! I just received their F-9 Cougar and F-8C Crusader conversion kit in the mail not too long ago. Glad they are safe and hope their home is fine. Prayers and best wishes! Tracy

    Tomcat 14” squat function.

    Thanx! That'll help when I start flying Heatblur's new F-14A/B in DCS. :-)

    Tomcat 14” squat function.

    So, the launch is with the switch in the kneel position, and the nose strut extends normally due to weight off wheels for normal retraction. There should be something in a checklist to ensure it’s in the extend position prior to landing? There is a reason I’m asking about this function. 😉 Tracy
  8. Hopefully there are a few Turkey drivers out there that can answer my question. After compressing the nose wheel strut to get the launch bar into the shuttle, at some point, is the nose strut switch set to Extend prior to launch? Thanks, Tracy

    I’ll dig out the 74 and measure... pics too. Here's a thought... add small pegs onto the glueing surfaces. I’ll drill small holes into the fuselage dome so the forward mount can snap into place for better support. Tracy Tracy

    Are you talking about from ball-joint to ball-joint, port-to-starboard? If so, there a pic on the previous page that shows them with the measurement written on the fuselage... roughly 49.5mm. The fuselage halves aren't fully mated, so maybe a tad less. Tracy
  11. Can we get a moderator to pin this at the top? Tracy

    USS Excelsior NX-2000

    Getting the urge to get back to this. With the passing of my best friend earlier this year, Gil "DutyCat" Gregg, I haven't felt like touching a model all year. Here's how the masters to the Excelsior project sit right now... The next section planned is the nacelle struts. Tracy

    Some images of the aft mounts with the lateral stanchions separated for a tongue n groove fit. The lateral parts just snapped into place. No glue here. Tracy

    I received the new rear mounts. They look great and will be easy to mold and cast into a more durable medium. I’ll post pics when I get home from my current trip. Tracy
