Re: Obituary...

Sad news for sure. For those who aren't aware, David's builds were quite often featured in reviews in Scale Auto and FSM, and he was also featured often by Scale Motorsports to promote their carbon fibre decal sets. You can see some of his builds on the "Customer Builds" area of their webs...

Re: Non-Auto modelling: Flipping massive Zeppelins

Really nice. The photo with the fighter plane for scale is mind boggling! As per the previous post about pairing an observation balloon with a WNW kit in 1/32, I also considered that once, but now realize that it would just be almost too huge to display. Did you buy your paint at a building supply s...

Re: 1/12 Lotus 49 - What solutions have people used for the over-sized DFV?

I successfully ordered a F2002 correction set from Brian Fawcett in January of this year. He was a little slow to respond to email due to covid restrictions and working from home, but it all worked out perfectly in the end.

Thanks to Cameron for elaborating on the gearbox options.

Cheers,
Richard

Re: 1/12th MFH Ferrari 250 GTO

Hi Dave. Thanks for the resin prep tips. Could you elaborate on the "lava soap" used. The ones I am familiar with are slightly abrasive .... is that the whole idea?

Nice build BTW.

Re: MFH kit for August 2021

Did MFH not say a while back that there would be no more Ferraris for now due to the licensing issues ... same as Tamiya?

Re: PLASTIC Upcoming F1 Releases 2021

If we were to look at Tamiya's "recent" all new 1/12th kits, the Ferrari Enzo and Porsche Carrera GT, they were more than double the cost of the 1/12th re-releases at the time. It would be a tough decision to choose what F1 car to release in order to recover the huge costs involved. I supp...

Re: That Paper With Decals

This is what I have successfully used for years, though not always this brand: https://www.amazon.ca/Pacon-PAC2371-Art1st-Tracing-Pad/dp/B002A2K07Y/ You can find something similar at any craft store with artists supplies. They come in various sizes, and are typically around $10 to $15 per pad here i...

A beautiful and very interesting conversion of a "troubled" kit. Thanks for the link to your WIP as well.
