  1. I’ve got the top sheet available if you’re still looking. Chris
  2. Any interest in making some $$$ by selling these parts to your peers? Chris
  3. I threw some Caracal markings for a NWEF TA-7C on my Skyshark. I dig it. Chris
  4. Did someone say SR-71 LASRE?
  5. I think it’s less than 18”, but not around to measure it.
  6. I use a Waller iron. This was pretty easy to solder. Any goo that was piled up was easily spread around with some heat.
  7. Here are two WIP of my Metallic Details Antares rocket and (sort of) LUT. The brass is all soldered. It’s very thick and it took more effort than usual to bed; including scoring the opposite side of the bend. The LUT is secured to the base with soldered brass rods (@ 1/8”) and another rod going up into the rocket from below. The “arms” hugging the rocket were soldered in place once the rocket was fixed into place. I airbrushed those areas afterwards. Next up is to add a wash to bring out the detail and decals. There are four cooling ducts coming out of the ba
  8. Why is the boarding ladder partially deployed?
  9. Deleted. Posted that sheet #2 is still available. Missed your title.
  10. I made some entries on the 3/4, 3/8, and 3/18 ARC Facebook page with some WIP pictures. 3/1, 3/4, 3/6 3/7, and 3/17 in “Space Modeling”
  11. It took a third behind the LEM and Ben Guenther’s “Ingenuity”. The kit gives copper wire for the axles, and antennas (coming out if the sides). I used telescoping and soldered brass tubing. I also added .006” solder for the wiring. I had a build thread on one of the Facebook space modeling and ARC pages. It’s pretty much OOB.
  12. Fun little kit even with 37 parts to solder for each wheel. Chris
  13. The CWM kit is awesome. I used fine lead wire instead of the rubber thread. I 50/50 scratchbuilt my CRL. Bone Fragments has a more detailed and accurate version hitting the market soon. Chris PS No need to mention my Navy JDAMS on a USAF jet. I know. I know.
