    Tie Bomber design and building thread

    Every section you want to water form will have it's own procedure. Those lines you are trying to cut have to be done when the part is flat. It's virtually impossible to cut on a tube like that, and have them all look the same. Keep plugging along, you'll get it. ;)

    Combat Engineering Vehicle - IMR-1 'TEST SHOT' & Full Build

    I prefer laminating to cutting thick sheets. With the right kinds of glue, you can make a laminated sheet extremely firm, and it's a whole lot easier on the hands! :)

    My son is dealing with issue for the last 4 years. He could not finish his senior year. All the scholarships were coming in, then a problem with his hypothalamus and pituitary gland caused then to stop reacting with his adrenal gland properly. A very difficult situation. My heart goes out to...

    Don't make a whole model. Make a subsection, like the engine, or wheels. Make a pile of parts. Each one is a model unto itself. You are having a problem by looking at the end and it seeming over whelming. When I was a machinist, I enjoyed it. I would make a part, not having any idea (in...

    That explains a lot. He makes a lot of models, but does not really go for much detail. He does make models of really odd subject matter than cannot be found anywhere else, and that's cool. I'd like to see him put his vast talent on making something very detailed. I just started an Anatory...

    I would take a dull pizza cutter and push all the lines on the hull to give it texture. Color in those white edges, Black would be better than white bare cardboard. Is this you own design? If so, you're off to a good start. If not, can you provide the link? :)

    Sopwith Camel F.1 - (Wood and Metal kit)

    I would consider making a detailed paper model for the engine, and have the metal engine onn a display stand, so you can spin it. I am hoping you will make it a non static enginee model. This is a beauty of a kit. I know you will do it justice, and even more. ;)

    Thank you guys, I hope people build this model. I hope they watch at least video clips of it to know where to greeble it. It is a very engrossing Anime. It was bigger than "Sta wars" was to America in Japan. I had to wait 4 years to get the extra edition DVDs. It's one of the few...

    I didn't see that one. The one I have is all in one ..zip file. If you felt up to the task. that would be a great addition to the Resource Section. Let me know. I'm terribly bust these days, barely on the computer at all. It would be worth having. Excellent find!! :)
