View Full Version : What are you working on now?
10-03-2004, 10:59 PM
Just thought it would be interesting and fun to see what everyone is working on these days. Although there are a number of building threads right now, maybe a few don't have the time to write a building thread but would be willing to post a photo of something in progress. It doesn't have to be done, just a sort of show and tell. :D
I've got a thread going on my 1:250 Constitution, but here is a photo just to get things going.
A clue as regards my case...,

This week, I have mostly been lookin at LCT drawings.....
PS and thinking about starting again in 1:72 scale.
Great idea for a thread, Jim! :D
Here's my build of Ralph Currell's R 101 that I finished up this weekend. Today also happens to be the 74th Anniversary of R 101's final flight.

How to I attach a file? Sounds pretty stupid but I think I'm doing something wrong :oops: :?:
10-04-2004, 11:26 AM
Either you attach the file at the bottom of the post, or you use the img tags.
for the img tags you need use this format http://image_url
that will post the image inside the post.
as for the attachment, click on add an attachment at the bottom of the message window, and just follow the directions.
it is pretty easy

Like Rick wrote, it's pretty easy to post a photo.
I like doing it as an attachment. When you "Post a Reply", before you submit or preview, look at the bottom of the box, and click on the "Add an Attachment" button. That then reopens the "Post a Reply", but this time there is a section for you to indicate the link for the source of the attachment, your photo, which you then enter in the appropriate space (or use "browse" which is what I mainly do), then click on the button "Add Attachment."
If the size of the picture file is within the restrictions permitted by the site, it will reopen the Post a Reply and you can then select "Preview" to see your message with the attachment before submitting it to the thread. If the file is too large, it tells you with an error message and you need to adjust the file size.
It actually takes longer to explain than to actually do, but I hope this helps.
Tried reposting photo and this is what appears:
Sorry, but the maximum filesize for all Attachments is reached. Please contact the Board Administrator if you have questions.

Guess you got carded again, Gil. :lol:
Funny, I never got that message except when sending PM and I didn't clean out my mailbox. :?
Hope it gets sorted out.
10-04-2004, 01:53 PM
Ok, bumped it up to 100Megs of storage.

Ron, fix it if you see the need, or complain to me in private :P
One more try...,
10-04-2004, 04:19 PM
Okay I'm going to give this attached picture thing a shot. Here's the Phoenix that I'm working on. This is the last full sized in-progress shot that I have I'll take pictures of the almost finished model tonight.
10-04-2004, 08:11 PM

I have to tell you, I am enjoying everyone's post to this thread. :D
Some extraordinary stuff being built by the members. I only wish they could be the subject of some building threads so I could steal some of your building secrets. :lol:
Keep them coming, folks!

I am now working in the GPM me 262.
Sorry no photos for now beceuse I dont have a digital camera.

Old model of Yak 9 1/35th , modified as one of Normandie Niemen. Lots of difficulties due to poor quality of printing and design. Wing fully redesigned with internal structure. Some parts added.
Definitely not the best model I have made :cry:
Let's say it's a prototype....... :evil:
10-05-2004, 07:47 AM
I am very glad to show what model I am doing now.
There's long way to go though.
The ModelArt VISBY CORVETTE + WESTLAND LYNX 1:200
And the Yak-23 Czech camouflage( easy to find in the following picture). Excellent design by NOBI.
10-05-2004, 10:21 AM
That's the model I'm working on at the moment. Another GPM B-25 Mitchell is also somewhere on my desk.
10-05-2004, 10:35 AM
Liberator looking good. Is it a Navy version, or what? - I don't recognize the color scheme.
10-05-2004, 12:34 PM
Here is a photo of my latest progress on the GPM JU-87 Stuka. I am almost done, and I am looking forward to completing this model so I can begin the Modelik IS-2
10-05-2004, 03:18 PM
Here's the finished Phoenix. I couldn't resist adding Jimmy and Hardy to the background. "The design is perfect the only possible defect is the pilot". Or something like that. Anyway, I used the double stick tape method for the windscreens. Nice to have no glue smears to deal with. The rigging in metallic floss from the craft store and the spreader bars were shaved and shaped from bamboo skewers.
10-05-2004, 03:52 PM
Really nice Phoenix, Cecil! Well done.
10-05-2004, 03:53 PM
Now that came out real nice!
Great photo!! :D
10-05-2004, 05:11 PM
Thanks guys, The Canford Frosted Silver paper seems to have just about the right level of beat-up look for this model.
10-05-2004, 07:50 PM
Here is a piece of History.
The PB4Y-1 depicted by the model served with VB-103 stationed at Dunkenswell, Devon, England. On the night of November 12, 1943 this aircraft, flown by Lieutenant (jg) Brownnell, attached a German Type IXC U-boat noth of Cape Ortegal, Spain. This was U-508 commanded by Kptl. Goerge Staats of the 10th based at Lorient, France. In the ensueing battle LT. Browell and crew succeded in sinking the U-boat but the PB4Y was apperently heavly damaged by the U-boats AA fire and crashed into the sea. The next day, two oil slicks were spotted, about 5 miles apart. There were unfortunatly no survivors from either the PB4Y-1 or the U-boat.
This is my working on...
10-06-2004, 12:01 AM
What is it? The Texan??!!
10-06-2004, 12:53 AM
Houw about a Tucano? Pardon the spelling...it's late.
Short Tucano T.1...available soon
10-06-2004, 08:43 AM
You nailed Darwin! Way to go!
10-06-2004, 04:38 PM
Dunkeswell! Hey, that pic of me looping in a Stampe SV4 is over Dunkeswell! Small world. When I was there last, (9 years ago) they had a prop pulled out of the sea which they reckoned was from a crashed USN bomber. It was pretty badly corroded though...
10-08-2004, 10:33 AM
Another nice one NOBI
Tucanos in their nest agree
Guinness is good for you
Open some today and see
What one or Toucan do.
scroll down to the first image
Completely irrelevant of course. :D
This is what I have been working on for a bit now.
This is the second build the first being a white model???
10-15-2004, 10:44 PM
