  1. Tom, How's your build going? I didn't find any info on airfoils, so they're simple oblongs (as with the Disney version). I guess I could use a NACA profile - it'd be period correct(ish) at least, but it's more, "Out of the pages of Colliers", so I wasn't super concerned correct aerodynamics and more just matching the overall aesthetics.
  2. I just want to see pics of the kit. 🙂
  3. Well that's... different. https://www.luckymodel.com/scale.aspx?item_no=PSD-AMK-001 Complete with LEDs so it can light up. As is usual on airbrush-based spacecraft, I guess?
  4. Yep. Agreed. No 3D file = no 3D print.
  5. What are you looking to print? Do you have a file? There are a few people on ARC who have printers and would likely be willing to help. (including me, but I'm not in the US)
  6. When are the EJ/Kai re-releases due?
  7. I don't really agree. If you want variety, in types, in appearances, and in colour schemes, WWI is way, way more diverse (you can literally build something in any colour of the rainbow... WWII planes are *literally* painted drab!) yet it's still a really niche subject matter. Besides, even given the variety of WWII subjects, most *actual* model building is still limited to the same six or seven basic aircraft, which often depict the same high-profile pilots. IMO, it's more to do with the WWII echo that happened as the boomers were growing up - classic war movies and shows on TV,
  8. I wonder if this will change as the boomers start dying. Or if it's so ingrained in modellers now, it's just the default 'mainstream' subject.
  9. Question for the crowd, since we're discussing Phantom minutiae... Is there a good overview of which wheel/hub styles were used when/where/on which versions? I'd like to do some upgrade parts - it's one of the few areas that underwhelmed me on the kit.
  10. Damnit! I've got a fairly comprehensive collection of early Koku Fan on CD, some 25+ years worth - including all of 1983 - except for that issue! Like, literally, it seems to be the ONLY issue that I don't have. 😣 Sigh. FWIW, there's a small piece on the '82 William Tell in the January issue including a pic of an ANG Phantom, but it's a direct profile, so it's impossible to tell what the wing walks look like. Nothing in the March issue (except a cool model of a proposed Thunderbirds A-10 scheme...) And there are a few MiANG Phantom pics in the December '82 issue (p
  11. I could see someone like Italeri or *maybe* Revell buying them to add a bunch of European-interest subjects to their catalogue in one fell swoop. Someone who isn't afraid to reissue mediocre kits from defunct manufacturers (thinking of some Esci toolings for Italeri, while Revell still reissue some stinkers). As long as the offer is more than scrap value, *someone* will pick them up... they just have to be willing to sit on the tooling for a few years before reissuing them; sure, there's excess inventory today, but 5 - 10 years from now, people will probably be desperate for at least a coup
  12. Interior. The Hindenburg had two main decks inside the envelope. The upper had passenger accommodations, while the lower was a mix of passenger and crew amenities. Starting with the lower deck, from port, looking aft... I seem to have screwed up my dimensions, as the hallway is too narrow, but NBD. Up front (bottom) is the captain's table. Aft of that is the kitchen, then crew dining area, lav and stairs leading to the second (upper) deck. On the other side, from right to left, we have the smoking room (yes, it had a smoking room; it was

  14. Kind of a big topic... what do you want to know? A few TL;DR points... You won't get much modelling use out of a printer unless you can design your own parts. For miniatures, there are lots of files online (the 3d printing world is lousy with warhammer people...) For detail parts and figures, you'll want a resin printer, not an FDM one. Most resin printers use identical basic components, so brand isn't super important; size and resolution are. Resin printing and cleanup are kinda smelly - probably on par with airbrushing overall, but the printer runs for
  15. BigClive had a ton of great videos. What etchant did you use?
