  1. Having just seen an F-35B in action last weekend I can assure you that the only thing even remotely boring about that jet is the grey.

    Can I use an enormous compressor for airbrushing?

    That's what I do. I would also add an air dryer to the line to eliminate moisture. Compressor turns on every couple weeks instead of every 5 minutes.

    Captain Morgan Private Stock for me. Strait with maybe a couple ice cubes. A great rum in my opinion, but I'm not a connoisseur.

    Salyut 7 film

    The US shuttle scene at the end was absolutely ridiculous...but on the whole it was pretty good.

    "Annihilation" movie

    From the previews it looked like it has a "roadside picnic" kind of vibe to it? For those not familiar with the book...look it up, I highly recommend it.

    Looking for ESCI/AMT/Italeri 1/48 S-3 Viking instructions

    That'll do it! Thanks very much Dave! Thank you sir for your generous offer! I think I can make due with the instructions shown in the link above. They are pictures of the instructions but they get the point across. Very generous of you to offer up your time up like that, I know we've all got a lot going on these days. Thanks all for the replys!

    Looking for ESCI/AMT/Italeri 1/48 S-3 Viking instructions

    I gave them a shot first. No joy there as far as I can tell.
  12. Hey guys! Any idea where I might find a .pdf of the instructions for the ESCI S-3 Viking? I got a 1/48 kit off ebay that was complete except for the instructions. I know they're just "recommendations" but it would be nice to see how ESCI/AMT/Italeri S-3 intended the kit to be put together. Thanks!
  13. Modelcollect is the manufacturer of the new B2. Despy, you don't have to worry about rescribing panel lines if you don't want to. The real one is (almost) as smooth as a baby's bottom.

    DIY project: plasticard printing/cutting machine

    It definitely wasn't built with safety in mind. I've got a friend who owns one and the first two things he did was add a microswitch to turn the laser off if you open the lid while it's running; and second, he moved the ground for the high voltage from the case (yes it was grounded to the case) to the electrical cord ground.

    A cheaper Chinese laser - quite popular on eBay... https://www.ebay.com/itm/40W-CO2-USB-Port-Laser-Engraving-Cutting-Machine-300x200mm-Engraver-Cutter/152532418116?epid=1272508730&hash=item2383a3fe44:g:WJEAAOSwjL5ZB2nR Although I would second a cutter personally. I've got a Silhouette Cameo and it has proven super handy, from cutting super thin strips of masking tape for making WW1 wing rib tape, plastic circles for making scratch wire wheels, and custom paint masks. Roundels are now super easy. I'm all for building a tool for the sake of learning to build a tool if that's what you're going for. I've done it myself plenty. If you want a tool because you want to do "stuff" with it, buying one is probably cheaper - in time and money - and a lot less frustrating. Plus, it gets you doing what you really want to do a lot faster.
