    Some nice releases in the list. Quick question. Which kit are the Fokker DR.1 wings aimed at? Regards, Mark
  2. I pre-ordered an Anycubic Mono SE in early October and also ordered 1KG of white plant based resin and a wash and cure machine. It was delivered in mid November in seperate shipments over three days my additional resin purchased in the 3 for 2 offer arrived in a couple of weeks. Hopefully this will give you an indicator of current shipment times I've done some initial tests but need to experiment with exposure times and learn the art of adding supports. I'm still learning but I'm pleased I've been able to design some engine detail to go in the intakes of my Trumpeter F
  3. That sounds like a good deal will have to keep an eye out for it. Well my wash and cure machine arrived yesterday and the resin arrived today so just missing a vital missing item now, the printer. The strange thing is, on my order on the anycubic website is that only the wash and cure machine is showing as shipped the resin isn't but I have it.
  4. Airfix released the Italeri kit with markings for Bravo November a few years ago. Hope you manage to track one down.
  5. I don’t know if this is of use to anyone, Anycubic are selling their resin on a buy two, get one free offer with the code RESIN3 at the moment. Regards, Mark
  6. This looks really good. Do you think it will fit the Roden Kit? I was also thinking that Fokker D.VII or Albatros D.V struts might have also been popular too but understand that the kits not being in production any more might impact a decision to do this. Although Albatros struts for the Roden D.III would be useful due to the weight of the model and the soft plastic they use. Regards, Mark
  7. Well I've taken the plunge and ordered an anycubic Photon Mono SE based on the discussion on this thread. Looking forward to receiving it and have been busy learning and creating things to print in fusion 360. I've not heard anything since ordering last week but they were on holiday and I don't think they are shipping till the 25th October so I'm hoping there will be no delays like others have received.
  8. Thanks for the heads up Julien, I’ll look into it. Making some correctly sized LN masks shouldn’t be too much of a problem for me if that’s the case. The tail serial numbers should also be doable in 1:32 as well on my silhouette cameo thankfully.
  9. Hi @Julien Was that specifically the Maximum Effort Eagles sheet I have or a different one? Also was it the whole sheet that was the wrong size or just specific markings? Cheers, Mark
  10. I think @Piero on here did a resin update set a few years ago. Can’t remember if it included a nose. As I don’t think this set is currently available, I was thinking of making my own corrections for my kit when I get round to it. Hope this helps, Mark
  11. I highly recommend the recently released Two Bobs sheet 32-070 F-15E Maximum Effort Eagles. All aircraft are Lakenheath Based Strike Eagles that took part in operations against ISIS in 2018. All aircraft have nose art and mission markings. The research is up up to the usual Two Bobs standard and there is even a nice touch of a map of England. Near the tail with a stencil saying it was painted at RAF Lakenheath and has details of the paint used. I think some work will need to be done to bring the Tamiya kit up to date. I can recommend the Jake Melampy book f
  12. I've spent a week learning fusion 360 and must say, I really like it. I have almost finished my first drawing. I've watched a few youtube tutorials and taken it from there. I had an email last week about changes to the free version and that some features were being removed. https://www.autodesk.com/products/fusion-360/blog/changes-to-fusion-360-for-personal-use/ As a new user of Fusion 360, the biggest issue as a result of the change to me will be to only have 10 active documents at one time but I can get around this by archiving projects that I'm not working on. Othe
  13. Just looking on the Anycubic Site and the sale seems to have been extended. They also have the new printers available for pre-order in October Photon Mono - $209 Photon Mono SE - $349 Photon Mono x - $589 Just been comparing the specs below copied from the Anycubic website and I'm now considering the Photon Mono as a starter 3D Printer. Technical Specifications System : ANYCUBIC Photon Mono X ANYCUBIC Photon Mono SE ANYCUBIC Photon Mono Operation : 3.5 inch Touch Screen
  14. Thanks for the information here, it's really useful. When there was talk of screens on here, I thought it was the touch screen to operate the printer that was being discussed so thought the quality wouldn't be a big deal but now I realise that the screen is used for the actual printing so I can see how a 4k screen would be benificial. I think that the information in this thread is making me come to the conclusion that if I can get a photon as part of the deal, I'll get one but as I won't be able to print what I want until I've learned the software and designed the items I want to
  15. I think that was going to be my next question, I was drawn to the Photon because of the offer mentioned here. I was wondering which other manufacturers were worth looking at if I don't get a photon? I imagine that 3D printing is developing at pace and new printers will offer better printers at lower prices so it's a question of when to jump in although I feel that the quality and price now seem to me making it a more viable option than when I was looking a few years ago.
