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.
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:
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
