  1. I'm gonna have to go with the "it depends" answer. True, a good number of parts on the market now are being produced by liquid resin 3d printers, but that's still not always the case. Shapeways does offer parts that are still supported with wax and while yes they do say they "clean" the parts before shipping, as many can attests, their cleaning process isn't always so complete and the dreaded "wax ghost frost" still can pop up. I'd recommend getting in contact with who ever sold you the parts and finding out for sure what processes were used to print them. Also, even some FDM prints of certain
  2. Very interesting question. I wonder if the change in tension occurred when they switched to Super Hornets. Which also could account for the looser formations. Bigger planes, not quite as agile, etc.... But I would like to hear the real answer.
  3. And another beautiful job. Got kind of a Mad Max meets Star Wars walker look about it. Interesting and very well done.
  4. Wow, beautiful work there! It's not my cup of tea subject-wise, but man it's awesome enough to make me consider that genre. Nice colors and the metallics are gorgeous. Thanks for posting!
  5. Outstanding! REALLY great job on this. Which files are these from? I have the Gambody model that I haven't printed yet. Thanks for sharing! Bill
  6. 😄 perhaps, just not quite as much....acne?
  7. Thanks Gregg. Here's a 96% completed pic in front of a computer monitor back drop. The backdrop really helps sell it and distract from the flaws...some.
  8. Still got a ways to go, but I think it's looking ok-ish.
  9. "You built that? You're braver than I thought!"🙂 Nice job on that hunk of junk. It would be interesting to see a smashup build with a star ship and this as it's saucer section. Might throw fans of both series in to convulsions, but would be pretty cool. Bill
  10. Not completely about space arrangement, but sort of. One of the things I started doing with instructions is taking cell pics of them and then viewing on a tablet instead of keeping the paper at my desk. It's neater, takes up less room and you can zoom in and out as needed. (important for older eyes like mine) I've been meaning to get a swivel arm tablet/computer monitor mount above my desk for it as well to help keep it out of the way when I don't need, but ready for access. Also good for keeping reference photos close by to look at. Nice looking are you got to work with for sure!
  11. I watched the new trailer and am a little less excited about it now. Not sure, just something about it is looking more over the top with some of the effects. Sure, I'll probably go see it because ANY chance to see real fighter jets on the big screen is worth checking out. But a lot of the scenes in the new trailer are just a little too hard to believe. (under the bridge, really had to do that cliche'?) Just my take.
  12. Isn't the Shuttle ET and the SLS main core the same diameter or am I mistaken?
  13. Just curious, has anyone looked at what it would take to maybe modify the 1/72 scale Space Shuttle Stack and create an SLS rocket? They share many of the same components but would still require quite a bit of scratch building. Could be a fun project for sure!
  14. Not to mention the builder didn't clear coat over the "VMA-513" decals on the second plan in. That doesn't look real AT ALL! 🤣
  15. Many years ago someone at our local club contest entered 2 Halo figures. They were really large, maybe 1/6 scale perhaps? I doubt they were 3D printed as this was maybe 10 years ago. I would guess resin kits. but they were really well done. I'll have to dig to see if I can find the pics I took of them.
