  1.

  2. Hi, I do not have a Sabre as yet, will probably get one soonish, could you send me a photograph or two of the kit parts, and the area that you want removed, if I understand you correctly. I do have the Mitchell, so I will have another look at those. However I am a little more cautious developing 1/72 sets in particular and even 1/48 scale as the way my production costs work it makes it tricky sometimes to make sets that I market at competitive prices and at the same time make it worth my while. However I will look at most suggestions put forward, and access viability, and then t
  3. Hi Chris, all being well you may not have to wait too long, watch this space in the next week or two, I just hope all works out the way I have planned
  4. Hi Guys A replacement canopy set is now available https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/eurofighter-typhoon-replacement-canopy-set-for-revell-kit
  5. Hi Guys A new set is now available for the single seat Typhoon https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/eurofighter-typhoon-replacement-canopy-set-for-revell-kit
  6. Where did you order from and where do you live in the world, just curious
  7. My ones came from a Kinetic box, but if it is the same moulds then, they will fit.
  8. Thanks for the order, glad everything worked out well, happy modelling.
  9. Hey it is not your fault, it was and is always worth a punt, you never know it could turn around. However even with a huge flow of website traffic from them being posted up on Hyperscale today, no biters, strange but true.
  10. Hi yes I am, but thought would try these first, also tricky to find really good details to make them. Another point is that these are and have not sold very much as yet, I do not think I have sold 1 set of 1/72 as of yet so I ask the question is it worth it???? it was worth a punt to see how these go, but confidence is not in abundance.
  11. I would stay away from the bottom line Anycubic, could never get mine to print well. Now got Elegoo Saturn, a lot more money but so much better. I would go for the Elegoo Mars 2 or one of the smaller Phrozen machines. I bought the Anycubic wash and cure machine, the wash is too cumbersome, I just just old ice cream tubs or similar with IPA in with a tooth brush to scrub parts down, BUT the curing part of the machine is GREAT.... as it rotates while curing it cures parts evenly. If money is a huge factor, I would suggest getting the best printer you can afford and then get a curing machine

  15. Thank you for support guys, and to all those making purchases.
  16. Hi guys I now have the replacement canopy sets for the Tamiya kits available This set ended up being a little more tricky than first thought, but I am pleased with the results in the end, you now have three clear resin cast parts, two separate support frames and the canopy supporting cylinders in two alternative lengths for both the front and rear canopies, all supplied as 3D printed parts. Note use the frame part between front and rear canopy from the kit. https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/mcdonnell-douglas-phantom-replacement-canopy-set-for-tamiya-kits

  18. Firstly this is good news as the 1/32 scale one is just too big for me but a 1/48 scale one will be great. So many ideas and things that can be done, but not sure if I will get to everything quick enough having my to do list rammed packed. However will just have to see how things go, firstly will need a kit, maybe 2 and that is where it gets expensive. After that it takes at least 6 months development, and by then so many people move on to the next new model......... I am not adverse to ideas and looking at things so no slam against you Homebee, but the modellers seem to think that
  19. Hi, best go to the website go to the instruction tab, 1/72, Hornet, I am sure these will help, cheers Ali, enjoy your modelling
  20. I have found that it is better to purchase from a local U.K. supplier, when the Tunnan was first released I bought one direct, and found it worked out a little more than buying it locally. I have a feeling with all the new rulings that may be even more the case, BUT WHO KNOWS..... also it may take a little longer to get here than ordering direct from Pilot, but the kits are great, not perfect, but good.
  21. Looking forward to this, the early Tunnan and the SK105, BUT just remember these will more than likely be in the £50-£60.00 price range, based on the kits that are currently available from Pilot Replica’s. So just hope we do not have too many complaints at that price when it becomes official. The Clear Prop Skyshark is at that price and quite a few are complaining at that price. We need to realise that the smaller injection moulded companies doing more unique and specialised aircraft kits just cannot try and compete with the larger guys and produce these kits at the £30.00 -£40.00 price ran
  22. It is the books that I will miss the most I think
  23. Thank you appreciate that comment. Well I do some of my own casting and a friend does some, but what this offers is being able to print parts, that do not have huge flash attached. Things like the prop blades are very tricky to cast, easy to print, also I can do hollow parts like the cowling, that are tricky to do in resin casting, hollow is always better to reduce SHRINKAGE, this applies to both types of production. Although a few of us are seeing that the printed parts are prone to swell a little, all fine margins though, with many variables. For many parts though going foreward print
  24. Thanks James, I am glad that you are pleased. I agree the exhausts could be possibly repositioned, but with care they can be removed, best is a fine razor saw. Blades are interesting as they are quite flexible, but other times some printed parts are brittle.....I am so new to all of this 3D design and printing, so somethings still puzzle me a little.
