  1. Did you have much luck sorting this issue? i had seen somewhere that for some obscure reason people who had problems with USB stick reading had some success when using a USB>SD card reader and then actually put the program on the SD card. Not sure why or how that impacts. There seems to be quite a few devices that are coming onto the market in the sphere of large format resin printers. But i think that many of them will be updated to use monochrome screens and next time round i think ill look for one of those machines. Ive not had much printing this month at all, in res
  2. Welcome to the site! youll find a wealth of banter, knowledge, and tips on this forum! Was doing some site surveys up on the North Yorkshire Moors last week! Quite beautiful up there, but also surprisingly desolate! Stick a Yurt on the horizon and you could be fooled for thinking your on the Mongolian steppes!
  3. From the opposite end of the spectrum, how about going 'New School' - you can always learn to do modelling in 3D on the computer! There is lots of free software out there, vast swathes of tutorials and support groups, and you could even have them 3d printed and ready to go as one piece designs! just a thought! Staying in the physical realm, paper modelling is honestly incredible. i always am blown away by the quality achieved with the most basic of building materials. @Stephen W has done some amazing designs on this site!

  4. @Tony C no chance of that happening, there is a scary level of logic and reason used in your decision making process. One thing that i think is almost a great feature a lot of these museums seem to miss is just how the VARIETY of former aircraft is what makes them so unique. if we avoid kit and single engine civil aircraft, we probably only see a handful of 'new designs' come out per decade now. In the past, you seemed to get 20 or 30 new aircraft designs in a SINGLE YEAR. Prototypes, one offs, bizzare sub variants, they can be some of the most interesting exhibits at a museum, an
  5. Just caught wind of this thread and cant believe the number of airframes that may potentially be lost, particularly at Cosford. I do however see the issue. Reduced funding, limited space, and an ever deteriorating collection and less and less skilled workers/engineers to keep them in good condition. I think if anything does look to be moving, its worth taking a trip down there to get as many 4k walkarounds and footage as possible. At least we can provide a digital alternative after the physical shoots off. What i have noticed is that there seems to be quite a number of
  6. Hope everyones supply issues have been resolved, but i had noticed an issue with something i was getting delivered and thought i may chime in if anyone is still waiting. It seems that with the latest covid restrictions that have gone into effect in Germany, they are currently not dispatching any goods in or out of the UK, my sellers official comment was : "Germany’s post advises that several European countries have imposed transport and travel bans on the United Kingdom due to COVID-19. The post has stopped accepting transit mail to the UK and Ireland." Now im actu
  7. Unfortunately we got an aborted takeoff on this latest Blitzbuild contestant. Got the model complete but ran out of time for paint decals and finishing. Deciding to go the single seat option was definitley my downfall,as this left large gaps where the hinged 2 seater canopy would have been, and required totally scratchbuilding the rear bulkhead behind the pilot. On the other hand, i learned how to do bulkheads and also fill and sand large gaps to a degree i haven't before, so it was a generally positive experience overall. I think next time i will a
  8. Ok, bit of a late start! got started at 3.18pm and first thing was a light coat of grey primer on everything. once that dries ill see how things look and begin painting and cockpit assembly. not sure if i might need to quickly fashion some kind of firewall behind the pilots seat to blank out the rear or if there will be a gaping maw left...
  9. Looking good! Always tempted to get me one of these Bat kits to go along with a 'what if' of the full sized version planned!
  10. Hello All! Ok for this year i am going to attempt the following kit, slightly scaling my ambitions back from the twin engined SB-2 of this summers blitzbuild. Thought i would stick with a single engine, and avoid the issues of a prop by going into the jet era! So with that in mind, this is the kit i will be working on today! Well, parts already look lightyears ahead of the Novo SB-2 i worked on earlier in the year, so lets hope less filling is needed! From the looks of it, the instructions make this appear quite a simple build. The hope
  11. look like reproductions, but possibly suitable? http://jt-graphics.com/D_48.html
  12. Not sure whether to add this as a comment or create its own topic, but it seems that on the main page ( https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/) and all the various subsections, a lot of user profile picture thumbnails seem to be not loading, with around 50% showing the generic 'dead/broken image link' thumbnail. I can add a pic if needed and not sure if this is specific just to my machine /internet connection
  13. Try Here - https://www.the-blueprints.com/blueprints/weapons/bulletsmissiles/ Its not an exhaustive list, and misses a lot of 3 views, but its a good starting point. I now inextricably find myself modelling an AKS Burlak launch vehicle concept.......
  14. Any 'Test Shots' of the model in resin form available yet? Looks Great!
  15. Ditto to the thanks @Pilgrim_UK for showing me this Obsolete series, had not heard of it before. Some of the styling reminds me of Gasaraki, which i really enjoyed many years back, but any model kits for that universe are ridiculously priced! (quick check on ebay proves thats still the case even now!)
