    RMS Carpathia, Scratchbuild, 1/500 Scale

    My grandad always said we had a relative on the Carpathia when she responded to the Titanic, but damned if I can remember who it was. I look forward to seeing this one coming together. May, you say? Looks like there's at least as many fiddly bits as an Avro. Wonder if anyone's running a book...

    You're welcome Steve, I'll have to give it a go myself some time. Looking good there.

    Fiddly little details are the best bit. Anyway, Britmodeller expects that every man shall do his duty - and in your case that means photos of the boat on the judging table posted by close of play on Sunday 29th.
  4. The picture in post #178 is visible on my android phone. Such a shame most of the rest aren't, I'd love to see this one coming together.

    How do I post Pictures?

    Let's try:

    I have an idea that they make a tool specifically for that task, but given that you're clearly acheiving excellent results with the bench sander you're probably wise to avoid investing in specialist equipment for now. Really enjoying this build, its the kind of modelling that I'd like to be doing myself, if I could sort myself out and make the time.

    I see what you did there...

    When you think about it, waterline depictions of submarines has potential for some very lazy modelling indeed...

    Pub malt. Try a Glenlivet, 16 yr old. I'd join you, but I've been off the sauce since June.
  10. I'd second Etienne's and Mad Hatter's comments - I'd ratherlike to know how this turns out. If you won't post any more here, perhaps you could post a link to the thread on the Military Modeller site?

    Those US marines, they do like their crème-brulees. Earlier, you asked for suggestions for alternatives to PVA glue for attaching the paper templates to the wings etc. You could try searching for repositionable spray mount adhesive. It comes in an aerosol can and when sprayed on the back of a piece of paper it makes it tacky, like a post-it note. 3M make some, but don't confuse it with their spray photomount adhesive, which gives a strong, permanent bond.

    3D printing, anyone tried it?

    There's a WIP in armour, using professionally printed parts. The modeller (Wogga) has designed most of the parts himself using CAD software, but bought an off-the-shelf 3D plan for a jerry can. Quality of the parts is stunning, but definitely not home printer stuff: Long Job - FV439 Royal Signals Radio Relay with some 3d Printing
  13. I like the photography - the low camera angle really puts you in the scene.
  14. I don't know if it's any use to you, but the Tangmere museum website has a virtual tour of the Canberra cockpit: http://www.haraldjoergens.com/panoramas/canberra/files/

    Avia B-71 - ICM 1/72

    Now where have I seen something like that before? Hang on...
