  1. Yes, but people say the same thing about the T-37 and still no 48th scale kit
  2. Thanks for the advice and correcting my terminology. my FDM printer is a CR-10.The more I read, the more I think that drawing or scribbling the panel lines will be the best way to go. On another project I'm working on I found that printing the fuselage in "ring" sections seems to work best as appose to printing them in traditional left and right halves. Yes and no, weather its printed FDM or with Resin there will still be a post print process that will need to be done to make a perfectly smooth part. But I'm not expecting to print Tamiya quality kits
  3. MoFo, I have a Creaality ALS printer and a Anycudic resin printer. I'm going to print the main parts (fuselage , Wings.etc) in SLA and do detail parts with the resin printer. I know I'm going to have to do some work on the SLA parts to get a smooth finish,but so be it. Right now I,m drawing a P-8A Poseidon in 48th scale and I have plans for many other planes like a C-23 Sherpa, T-1 Jayhawk, T-37, TT-1 and a few more. 2020 is going to be a busy year of drawing for me
  4. Anyone know a good dimension for a panel line in 48th scale ? How deep and wide should I go in the 3d drawings I'm working on?
  5. The fire did millions in improvements. but all kidding aside, Im saddened by the loss of sailors
  6. Did anyone notice the refueling doors open in the second B-52 photo?
  7. Ordered! Although I accidentally ordered 2 sets
  8. Model Master SAC Bomber green works for me.
  9. Quoting the great Jeremy Clarkson: "What could possibly go wrong" https://warbirdwatcher.com/2017/01/30/project-cutlass-vought-f7u-restoration/
  10. The only one I see doing another 48th B-58 is Trumpeter, and I'll be willing to bet there would be shape issues, mistakes in the decals and 200.00 price tag!
  11. Chases are that those where painted in a civilian paint burn and not painted following any FS standards. Just go with that looks right to you.
  12. MIKE, Athought I agree with you there have been many NASA subsets over the years, I think there is room for new ones. Take the 1/48 F-104. There are kits out there which include decals for a NASA they are not so great. The the decals in the Hasegawa NASA F-104 kit was brittle and nearly on usable. Plus I haven't seen a sheet that covers the TF-104G yet.
