  1. I was reading an article about the 81st TFW where it said that the AR tailcode stood for Alconbury Recon. That makes sense, but why WR for Woodbridge/Bentwaters and not WB? And what does the N stand for in LN; 'nuclear' perhaps? LH would make more sense. Similarly, BT (Bitburg), why not BB, or following Alconbury logic, BF for Bitburg Fighter? Anyone have a definitive list/answer? I've often wondered actually.
  2. Giddey to all, I tried to scratch build the coal winches, but as they are very tiny peaces (3 mm height) and 20 x, I did not succeed. So I decided to 3D print them. I worked many hours with TINKERCAD and learned to use it. Then I uploaded the 3D file at SHAPEWAYS and ordered the model. Starting the next lesson: the printability! Loose shells, thin walls and the scale. The design of the coal winch is relatively simple there are only 8 shells, so I got it after 6 tries. Here are the pic´s of this design: and the real thing: here is the next step for the build, 3D printed boat davits and the 2 boat cranes: take look at the red arrow ! This is the previous scratch build part and should be exchanged with 3D Part boat crane The boat davits - challenge was/is they should be movable! Design relatively simple: and the real challenge - the 2 boat cranes! I have to make 2 different designs to get it placed at my model. As designed with tinkercad: As designed with tinkercad: A very komplex design, 4 movable parts, 2 different designs and more than 60 shells! When shapeways noted issues, I had to disconnect up to 20 shells, -change the design, realign and connect the shells again. When uploaded I often discovered missing shells, and start all over again. Here what I ordered at shapeways: I am waiting now for the printed parts, I am very curious! regards Andreas
  3. Giddey to all! Here another design, a muffler for the Italeri 1/24 MAN F90 kit. This detail is missing in the model, they have only the rather unusual sidepipes! It was not easy to design with tinkercad, but easy to print by shapeways. Regards Andreas Edited 5 minutes ago by Andreas.R
