  1. Aww, I thought it'd be more challenging than that. It is indeed a Drachenballoon. 1/144 (they're surprisingly large), designed in Solidworks and printed on my Photon. And far and away the most explicitly phallic looking modelling object I've ever seen! ๐Ÿ˜„ The full balloon is done in two halves so it's a simple assembly. Roughly placed together here, but after grinding out the base and giving the halves a quick sand, it's a perfect fit. (the halves are hollow, with 2mm thick walls so it's very robust, but the base of each half cupped slightly when curing. easy to remove with
  2. Pic of my latest WIP. Any guesses? ๐Ÿ˜ (hint: it's upside down)
  3. Glad I haven't started work on the aftermarket pods I'd planned to do. ๐Ÿ˜„
  4. Yeah, the answer to the OP is 'learn how to use an airbrush', not to buy a different brand.
  5. Yup. https://www.renaissance-models.com/ter/index.php/avions-toutes-echelles/echelle-1-48/produits/2549-mica-em-1-48e https://www.renaissance-models.com/ter/index.php/avions-toutes-echelles/echelle-1-48/produits/2550-mica-ir-1-48e
  6. Tapchan posted pictures from the show Narcos, showing Pablo Escobar looking sad while in hiding. I posted a picture from the same show, after he'd been caught (and executed). Though I see how it could be misinterpreted. Note the camera man and sound guys, though.
  7. Nope, it's definitely not, because when the mediocre Airfix kits were released, all the Brits said the holes were impossible to do in 1/72. So you must be mistaken. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  8. Thanks guys. And it is indeed Solidworks, though Fusion360 should do much the same things if you're looking for free software. Oh, and Peter, I found the single biggest hurdle was just thinking through the sequence of operations needed to produce something. I'm entirely self taught, through a combination of experimenting and Googling, and my first few models involved a lot of deleting-once-I-was-halfway-through-because-I'd-done-things-out-of-sequence. The models above are all done with simple operations (revolve, extrude, loft, chamfer/fillet), so the only 'trick' is being able
  9. No, they do not need to be "RealSpace" brand model kits. You can post any actual, non-fictional space vehicle here.
  10. Minor update to this thread (squashing a rumor, mostly). It has been suggested elsewhere that Express Hobbies in Saskatchewan stock MRP paint. THEY DO NOT. I reached out to them and was told that no, they do not stock MPR, nor do they have a distributor for them. Once again, someone has confused MRP with Mr. Color. ๐Ÿ™„ I guess that whenever you ask about it, you should say "Does anyone sell MRP Paint, the stuff in the Alclad-like bottle?' Or just, "Does anyone sell this stuff? "
  11. It's a necro-thread, Dave. So the 'new' news when it was posted was the first post in that ww1aircraftmodels thread
  12. Heads up Steve, that post above yours is probably about to become a spammer.
  13. Wow, I'm overwhelmed by the response from everybody. Here's another update: Not a whole lot visually different, but I've re-built the entire model. Most of my horizontal dimensions were slightly out, so I had to revise... pretty much everything. I also added the cockpit and observer's windows and landing gear wells, and proper rounded wing tips. With the basic structure more or less done (though I'll probably add panel lines, eventually), I could start adding proper details: Kind of hard to show everything in one shot, so hopeful
