  1. Hi, I hope this post wont be misinterpreted. I dont want to speak ill of anybody, but in that case i think it is really justified. This guy is a crook and he sullies the reputation of all the nice and honest resin producers. More than 2 years ago (31st March 2012) i've pre-order to Superbugmodels (Daniel Phelps) a full detail set for the F/A-18E. I paid $165 for it. It was due to be released very soon, in early April. But it hasn't. I wasn't too worry because Daniel Phelps always answered my emails and even sent me pictures of his WIP. He was saying that he was late for many reasons, but t
  2. Hi, I'm posting there as i cant have any contact from the website. Some weeks ago, i've made an order on the site. But as you know, one cant pay directly, you have to wait for them to check the availability and how much would cost the shipment, so your order is pending, payment status "estimating". My problem is that it's now several weeks and nothing has changed. I tried several time to send emails, but cant get any answer. Looks like a deserted website. It seems that i am not the only one in this situation (other people on LSP). So is there any one who know Kim, or who know what's happe
  3. Thanks, For the UK available booth, i have seen, and it is the same than in France or in Germany. My link The airflow is 4m³/min, so it is 240m³/h, whereas the artograph one is 370CFM which make about 630m³/h. So even with 2 boots, it is below the artograph, and in addition the artograph airflow is downward, which is better i think. But that is true the Euro one is quite cheaper (note that i need 2 in dimension consideration) and in the good voltage, but i think i will take the artograph. I had several emails with them, they informed me that with a good voltage converter it wil
  4. Thank you, i will try it. The concerned decals are the 2 "static vent..." and "do not paint - torque to 120/140 Lb. In." stencils on the nose of the F-4J's. I placed them too high. I tried to reprint them on decal sheet, but it is too small, and the printing is not clean. If i cant find any other solution, i would use those reprinted ones, anyway.
  5. Thank you for your answers. I got a response from artograph today : I really dont a projector, but i will ask them if it would be Ok to use it with an adapter, as i dont mind order it in the USA. Marcelo, there is also the frequency to consider. I think frequency is 60Hz in the US and 50Hz in Europe, and i think it would impact the fan rotation speed or make them overheat. (but i have to confess i am a dumb in electricity...)
  6. I have a different problem, i have to remove decals without damaging them, from a smooth futured area. I have placed them at the wrong place. I tried with some microset but they dont want to move, while i even start to damage the paint underneath (no problem i will respray). Do you think it would be ok with some hot water?
  7. When i start to paint with an airbrush, i bought my first air compressor in USA, and it was in 110v. I did not have any problem with a 110 to 220v adapter, and it even happend that i forgot to plug the adapter and directly plus the compressor to 220v without any damage (you quickly realize something is wrong when the motor turn twice its normal rpm...). But in an amazon.com page for a artograph booth, it is clearly said : So i am worrying about using this kind of adapter...
  8. No i have not, but on the artograph site, it is said in the technical datas that it is 110v powered. I will try to send them an email, and we will see.... Spray booth seems to be more common in America than in Europe or Asia. American lungs say "thanks".....
  9. Hi, I want to buy a spary booth in order to avoid breathing all of these toxic fumes, but i need a quite big one (30") because i only build 1/32 kits. The artograph 1530 seems to be great, with its downward vacuum, but i cant find any one in 220v, and i live in Europe. On Ebay, it is written that even with a 110 to 220v adapter it would damage the booth. So, is there any way to adapt it, or does it exist any large and good paint booth in european voltage?
  10. Hello, Desperatly looking for a set of pitzmodels photoetched Su-27 nozzles, i have just found that Nothern Star (from Latvia) is about to release that : My link I dont know if it would be as good as pitzmodels was, but it seems that it could be a good alternative. Hard to say with only the few pictures, but the shape seems to tend to be narrower at the extremity, like a kind of conic shape, while the pitzmodels was just a bit open just like the real thing. It has to be confirmed.... Anyway, this set still is not available yet, so perhaps we could have some more reviews soon. I am about
  11. Hi everybody, Does anybody know if a 1/35 K-50 model exists or is intented to be released soon? I looked for it everywhere but found nothing. I cant understand why? There is many 1/72 models, some 1/48, but no 1/35. Same thing for the Mi-28... Another question : is there any conversion for the 1/35 Mi-24V from trumpeter in order to make a Mi-24P? (side mounted twin-barrel 30mm gun instead of the front mounted .50 gatling gun) THank you by advance !
  12. I've never seen such a clean work at this scale! I would have never tell that it is 1/72 if i have not read it... It is great !
  13. Thank you, Yes, it is because of the angle of the camera. The picture was nos shot perfectly straight above. I will try to make some few more shot, with a better light, because on those ones, the shades of metal finish are bitten by the excess of light, and the very slightly weathering, too. I tried to make this aircraft not so dirty, as it appeared on the original picture, but it is possible i was a bit too shy with that. It is both a good and a bad kit ! Yes it is one of the early trumpeter kits, with MIG-15's and MIG-17's. Actually, the kit is not so bad for its quite cheap price fo
  14. I also thing you should let it go. I you only spotted it after building, priming, glossing, posing decals and varnishing your model, it is obvious that this seam must be very hard to spot. I know that when we find a defect on our model it is then almost impossible to stop thinking about it, and we just only see it on the model. But you certainly will be almost the only one.
