  1. Finally closing up the box after many hours of work. Halfway through making this parlor guitar in memory of a dear friend of mine. Making this guitar has brought catharsis and joy in the face of devastating loss. It's Martin style X bracing, alpine spruce top, Brazilian rosewood back and sides with a heavily inlaid fretboard.
  2. I did see one or two more basic 3rd angle projection drawings but I was hoping for proper station cross sections for the bodywork profiles. I was looking again and found proper 3D models of the '91 and '93 cars. What level of detail they have I can only guess but even if it was just the outside it'd be a good starting point for drawing the suspension and engine etc. from some good walk-around photos and making any necessary changes for the 1992 car. Which is the next thing I need to find out! Long story short - I want to start a collection of all Le Mans group C winners in 1:24 So
  3. Hi guys, (I also posted this in 3D printing discussion so please delete if not ok to double-post!) This is probably a long shot, but I'm on a quest for a set of drawings for the le mans winning Peugeot 905 ev1 with a view to drawing it in 3S and eventually printing it. I'm fairly experienced at 3D modelling and thought that this would be a fun project to do. I'm aware that there are Airfix and Heller kits in 1:24, I'm also aware of how catastrophically awful they are supposed to be too! Thanks a lot, Jered
  4. Hi guys, This is probably a long shot, but I'm on a quest for a set of drawings for the le mans winning Peugeot 905 ev1 with a view to drawing it on Rhino and eventually printing it. I'm fairly experienced at 3D modelling in Rhino and thought that this would be a fun project to do. I'm aware that there are Airfix and Heller kits in 1:24, I'm also aware of how catastrophically awful they are supposed to be too! Thanks a lot, Jered
  5. Great car and nice job! This kit has been on my wishlist for a little while. Looks really crisp.
  6. Since we're on the topic of being slightly off-topic with guitars Here's a battery holder I got for the transducer for the guitar I'm making. Martin style O, alpine spruce top, Brazilian rosewood back and sides. The rosette was... Challenging!
  7. 1:32 Revell Eurocopter EC145 plus Renaissance model's photoetch detail set. I'm also getting some decals done for the Wales air ambulance too. 1:72 CMR hawker typhoon which I'm thinking about doing a diorama of Baron Selys Longchamps's assault on the Brussels Gestapo HQ Coming back to modelling after a hiatus. I'm so tempted to go nuts on kits but I've already got so many to make!
  8. This arrived in the post to work yesterday I thought about making one myself at work, however, the amount of time it'd have taken plus materials it was much cheaper to work overtime and buy one.
  9. Uuuuurrrrgh that sounds like an absolute nightmare! How did you end up fixing it? Fig. 17 Coat of Alclad black primer which revealed that I need more careful sanding. I ended up double sided taping a small piece of paper onto a piece of cork sheet which did a nice job of faring in the sides. Fig. 18 "zenith" painted the engine details hopefully to give it a bit more depth come the paint job. I wish I had painted each component individually now! Ah well, learning curve and all that Fig. 19 Undercarriage and hatches/covers don
  10. Ah that's excellent, thank you. I did have a look at what was involved with home etching but the cost of setting up, learning what looks like quite a complex skill and as you say - the chemicals - I'd rather play to my strengths, ie. drafting and just do the design work then sub it out to someone who's already proficient at etching.
  11. Cheers guys. As long as you don't mind waiting a little while for it to start. I'm actually contemplating designing my own fret of PE for the model as I've found the ship's manual and scale drawings. Railings, ladders, chimney cowling and crane detail could then all be possibilities
  12. Hi guys, Sitting on on the shelf is a Revell 1:300 scale research vessel Meteor. The railings all look really chunky from the kit parts. I can't seem to find any 1:300 photoetch detail parts or railings. Would 1:350 look silly? I've seen a few 1:350 general ship detailing parts around but would they look odd at the difference in scales? TIA Jered.
  13. Thanks! I'm enjoying your Marchetti build. I will probably re do the control surfaces assembies as I'm not happy with the gaps. I work as a bespoke fine furniture maker so it feels more like all my woodworking skills are transferable! Still a learning curve getting back into it.
  14. Only a micro update as I've been away all weekend. Fig. 16 Picked up some fresh milliput from a petrol station (of all places) on my way home from North Wales back to Oxfordshire which enabled me to fair in the canopy. I found this quite challenging to try and get a decent shape to minimise sanding later on. Repositioned the ailerons and still have a couple of antennas to go on as they're fragile I was going to do them after rescribing some panel lines
  15. Evening all. Culebra. Solid bike that. Cheers, I'm a bespoke furniture maker by trade so a lot of the skills are transferable plus an eye for detail helps! I mostly do road and circuit racing at 2nd cat level with a wee bit of time trialling too. Got my first UCI stage race in April which I'm looking forward to. Fig. 10 Got the resin tail plane assy on. The moulding is really crisp, however a LOT of sanding is needed to get the rest of the fuselage flowing nicely. Also, there are a few panel lines missing on the surfaces. Undecided whether to scribe them
