  1. Even with her makeup scrubbed off she is a beautiful bird. Good luck tomorrow!
  2. This is extremely interesting to hear. That as ones skills increase, the forces that swirl around ones work area increase proportionally. It is heartening to observe that ones recovery time is also decreased. A lovely plump little being coming into shape Moa!
  3. Another beautiful civil aircraft Moa. I must say thatI find them more attractive than the killing machines. I love the color of the plastic on this one!
  4. Curious to know how you constructed the tube and it’s very realistic ribbing. It looked like you use PVC pipe in the previous Caproni-Stipa build I assume that you had to resort to epoxy or CA glue on that one. Both very sculptural.
  5. Another gorgeous art work of a lovely aircraft! Thank you Moa for sharing your joy with us.
  6. Interesting and lovely work Tony. Curious how you are going to represent the fasteners, rivets etc. Will deforming the brass change the shape? Or will you work on the painted layer? Inspiring to watch as always. Terry
  7. Looks really nice Gadget. I think that your paint job is subtly done. Speaking as anther newbie here, lurking in awe, your admonition to “swallow your pride and post the picture” is excellent advice. I too have struggled with the wires and finally discovered E-Z line, an elastic thread which makes it all much easier. Plus it gives if you accidentally hit it after installing it! Great work. Thank you for sharing it! Terry
  8. It has been such an instructive pleasure to watch this build Tony. A wealth of modeling tips and tricks on display, as well as just great skill and determination to care this incredible project through to completion. Thank you for sharing your journey with us.
  9. Re, the gorgeous ball turret. Have thought of making netsuke Fozzy? https://goo.gl/images/eEv7pg Beautiful work as usual Fozzy.
  10. Thanks Corsircorp, coming from you, high praise indeed! Thanks for stopping by. ble as the old Mono kit wit when you've done with it! I do like that little anvil you have there! Keith I can't remember where that little anvil came from but it has been quite useful! Thanks for keeping an eye on me Keith. LOL , well you caught me out there Devilfish, apparently I'm building some sort of night fighter bomber! Truly a "What the heck is it?". Basically I just like the shapes involved and after wavering a
  11. The hand grinder that I have can be turned down to fairly slow rpm so that made it easier. The cooper wire is really fine and worked well. I think that with practice I could produce longer runs of useful stuff. The lead wire was interesting as it would twist up so easily and then automatically break off! Really I was trying to represent what we call Romex cable or metal-sheathed cable. I saw someone here doing it by winding really thin wire around a thicker wire and then coating it. Looked much more like Romex that my twisted affair. After getting the crew sorted I st
  12. Thanks for checking on me Martian. The weather is still a bit too hot for painting I think, but I think that it will be sooner than later.. I have been enjoying your tug build. Wish that I could scratch build as cleanly! Terry
  13. Still working on the cockpit. Gave it a coat of Mr Surfacer 500: Began making wire harnesses to detail the cockpit, out of lead wire and foil. Added wires to the radio equipment: Discovered that if I chucked up thin wire in my Proxxon I could twist it evenly. Even worked with the lead wire! Added the pilot and navigator's seats. Made the boot that covers the linkages to the column. Decided to populate the cockpit. It became very crowded very quickly. I can see why Monogram d
