  1. My plan: to reduce the fuselage length in front of the wing, to reduce a little the fuselage width, to ignore the small difference in fuselage height; Use Milliput or similar to re-contour the nose. For the wings, to get rid of the glove. Tail elements, wing to fuselage fairing, engines and other details to think about later. What do you think? Anyone attempted it? I'd be interested to share ideas about the conversion. As refs I have Merlin Woodman's guide on converting C-135 to 720 on Airlinercafe, the Ultimate Boeing 707 Guide by David Hingtgen on the same forum, a P
  2. Thank you guys. I'll start a topic on the build soon.
  3. More than seven years later I started the model! Not the Heller kit as I planned but the beautiful Arma Hobby one. One more question for the experts out there: what to do with the cannon ejection holes? Fill them or not? Have a good Christmas and stay safe... Carlos

    Paint Shaker

    I am looking for a mixer for a long time, after watching in action one used in a lab. However, these are expensive and I never could justify paying more than 100 euros for one. Your post made me look in Aliexpress for the one you shared and I even put it on the cart when I thought I should look again for a lab shaker. And I've found a cheap one, with good reviews from modelers! For a little more than the Nail Lacker Shacker I ordered this one: From here: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001270476552.html It's coming from China, so I don't ex
  5. You know you will make "The Hearts's Content" (*) that has the very same metal prop, so don't be lazy! (*) as I will, an order to Avi Models is imminent
  6. Congratulations for the magnificent work and a big thank you for sharing it! I'll print it with my Photon S soon. Carlos
  7. What did you use for the luggage rack? It seems to be thinner than my tea bags!
  8. I will follow this very closely, as the Puss Moth is one of my favourite aircraft. Great work so far!
  9. These came from the LHS. Unfortunately no Scooter, so I had to grab a Swallow. Comparing the Albatros with the Czechmaster Resin one shows an obvious ancestry - not bad, unless for the very thick trailing edges of the wings. Of course I had to start immediately the Joystick vac!
  10. And it is very effective! Can you share some details of the pen, a pic maybe? I've been training with John's bow pen method and it works very well for small wings where you can make all the ribs with a charge of ink. But for larger wings, where you must refill, it takes some time to achieve the same amount of ink debit - a matter of experience, of course. Congratulations for the great topic. It's a delight to follow your build. As for the Vulcan, here's mine in the shelf of doom...
