    Thanks everyone, cheers for the interest! UFO was definitely a childhood favourite. I remember getting up on a sunday morning to watch it, in black & white! I have the complete series on DVD now and frequently re-watch it. Some of the scripts, and dialogue haven't weathered the sand of time too well, but the miniature effects are spectacular! Some more progress. After hollowing out the fuselage, I decided to go for a full cockpit, rather than the head and shoulders provided. I drilled out the cockpit and modified the kit's part to form a tub: I sourced an ejector seat (Monogram 1:48th F-100?) and pilot from the spares box: A close up of captain Carlin: The new cockpit module just drops into the fuselage: I have drilled into the wing roots, and fuselage to add some re-enforcement to the wing to fuselage join: Last thing. I raided Halfords for the correct colour: Thanks for looking Angelo.

    I'm pulling up my chair for this one, if you don't mind with a beer or two now I'm 56, going on 14 again. Brilliant stuff, Ah, happy days indeed. I fear many of my beer tokens may be spent with these guys in the future, I had no idea these chaps were out there. Cheers.
  8. That’s quite a remarkable story, but perhaps not a manageable solution to the question for every Shapeways customer. Great to see you got the good result.

  11. Great looking Robot\ Mech \Machine,very impressive.
  12. I agree Steve. We don't have agree to have an enjoyable conversation. Even if I didn't agree with it, Doog's review was well written. I may be eating my words. They just released another Solo trailer and it looks way better than the first two.

    Red Dwarf models?

    I can appreciate that Planehazza, it's not an amount I am used to splashing out for a model myself (well, not on a weekly basis, anyway ). On the other hand, the kits won't become available until end of this year, so if you put you kit purchases on hold for the rest of the year and concentrate on (finally) building some of your stash, you'd probably be able to afford this kit without having to resort to a Brussels Sprouts-only diet (yes, the one that Rimmer had in mind for the rest of the crew while in quarantine). So give it another thought; you've got time and you know you want one...
  14. Hello everybody, here's my report on my flying visit to the Dental lab last week. At my penultimate dentist appointment, I came up with the idea to confront my doctor with my Intertank cleaning problem and to ask if I could not even consult his colleagues in the neighboring dental laboratory. And friendly as he is, he agreed immediately and said that I should just bring along the tank at the next appointment. Said done, before my appointment last week, I was in the lab next door and I just happened to get to the nice manager, whom I showed me the original tank on a shuttle photo of the STS-6 and pressed him the Intertank in the hand, together with a short briefing to my previous chin-ups in the ultrasonic cleaning and the necessary parameters, i.e. mild medium (no Acetone!) and about 50°C. After the impression for an inlay I went back in the lab to the dental technicians 'with bite', as the name ChiliDent suggests already. This is the manager, Benjamin Geyer, and next to him on the wall stands a Sonorex high performance ultrasonic bath (Bandelin) with integrated heating. In this bath, he cleaned the IT in soapy water at approx. 50-60°C for approx. 15 minutes, whereby he carried out several visual inspections in between and brushed off the detached wax particles. Individual areas with remaining wax residues can then be removed in this Reitel Blast cabin, whereby finest glass beads (50 μm) are used. And then the IT can still be thoroughly rinsed with a high-pressure water jet. That's how I imagine the cleaning of the final IT for which I have already made a date. These are, of course, exclusive opportunities that I do not have at home and therefore thankfully like to use. One simply just must have a bit luck!
  15. Hi friends, over the weekend I took advantage of the bomb weather and bathed the final Intertank in the sun for half a day. Thereby not completely 'exposed' FUD/FXD should cure, which makes it easier to remove the wax.

    Red Dwarf models?

    Hi Warren, well, that's just the price of two Tamifujigawa kits (or one 1/32 Trumpy) , and that for a very exclusive kit! So yes, I'm game for one of these! Will post a new topic to raise more interest for one of these later today. So can we put down Mr Fibbles for one? Robert
