  1. I bought a Shining 3D SE a few months ago, it's OK for larger scans (above 30-40mm) but for small parts it's not great. The quality of the scans is OK but not really what I wanted for detail levels and you do get a degradation of detail because it's a copy. (Some of this may be where I need to learn to use the scanner better) I would probably say that learning Fusion 360 would be the way to go for ultimate detail (and cost). Cheers, Stuart
  2. I'm still waiting for the Blakes 7 reboot. To be honest I wasn't that taken with the Revell B5 kits, too small. A Whitestar would be good though.
  3. Are you attempting to cut off the supports before curing or after? The resin has a lot more flex before curing but has other drawbacks. (messy)
  4. Good to see you back on the Tyrrell. I always wondered why the airbox was matt, thanks for the info. Cheers, Stuart
  5. One of the new cats eyes perhaps? Think they are LED.
  6. I can't speak for the others but Anycubic stuff comes from a warehouse in the UK. I ordered a photon mono x after Jan 2021 and it arrived with no hassle or fees. I checked the shipping address and it came from a UK address. Also ordered resin and supplies from Anycubics ebay account and again it comes from within the UK.
  7. Devastating, he was a brilliant comedian and came out with some of the best lines I ever heard.
  8. I use Tameo red decal solution, it melts the whole decal film ( very careful application of the solution is a must) Paul Fitzmaurice introduced me to it (little cars/ modelling tools) https://www.modellingtools.co.uk/ I use it exclusively for tyre decals.
  9. I think you will need to supply a little more info, is the proto to be printed in resin or filament? The build volume you give would exclude resin unless it's printed in several parts and assembled. Resin proto is only good for static items whereas filament is good for a dynamic use.
  10. C of G will be out with him in the flightdeck.
  11. Not just military aircraft, Hawker 125s had depleted uranium mass balances I think. Radiation in flight is cosmic radiation, much higher at altitude than on the ground. Again 125s had interior insulation with a lead content to absorb some of it (although I think it was unecessary). I seem to recall Concorde had a cosmic radiation detector as it flew at 70k ft, the suns solar flares have a big effect on cosmic radiation levels. At normal flight levels the aluminium skin of the aircraft is all the shielding you need (stops alpha and beta radiation).
  12. The Starfury and gantry really work well as a display, by far the best Starfury build I've seen in a long time. So Thunderbolt next? Cheers, Stuart.
  13. Hello Mike, In what way are the model halves failing? At the print stage or are you unable to plane cut the nacelles? I find that the ability to plane cut with a minimal fill can fail depending on the source file. Are you using the Equinox file from Thingiverse? Regards, Stuart
  14. Do you mean the whole stash or just the ones I bought today?
