Wow, quite a bit of detailing in such a tiny model! In the early '60s, my father was stationed in Japan for a while, and I remember at the BX, they had dozens of tiny aircraft kits for sale for only 10 yen (about 3¢ at the time), so my brother and I used to buy them from time to time. They must have been about 1:144. I had no idea they still made aircraft kits in that scale. It would never have occurred to me to try to add so much detail. Nice work!
2. September, 12:56
it is possible to add detail.... to any scale if you really wan to :) glad you like it.
there is plenty of stuff a 1/144, believe me.

1:144 way too small scale for me!
20. November, 11:19
it can be some fun :)
20. November, 11:20

I tried a revell Ju-52 in that scale but it is a big plane.

I'll stick to 1:72 planes or 1:48 in tanks thanks

looking for the electronics module for a dremel 8000 cordless (part number for the module is 2610919742) anybody has one to spare?
maybe somebody has this model with dead motor or dead battery that can be used for spares
I hate to buy a new tool for just one or two electronics components fried... and i can not find that module any more (found a couple but for the price of a complete new tool)

I am impressed and inspired by your removal of the outer body wiring. That would have been no fun to paint, and adding actual wires will look more realistic. I wasn't so sure about taking a knife to mine, but now that I've seen your results I have a bit more confidence for doing the same. (I'm still debating whether to try opening at least one of the doors for better visibility into the cabin.)
14. July, 19:37
@Starbase101, that temptation has come to mind to me too.... I have been playing with the idea of getting a second kit, and try exactly that when I can come back to this one....but it requires a lot more surgery and scratch build that this attempt has....
@JD, shelf of doom... ? kind of of, but i hope to be able to go back to the hobby soon... and this time, actually build rather than comment on what others build ;)
14. July, 20:09
Sorry If I was insensitive Spanjaard, I don't know what your situation is, I was just teasing you a little because your last post on this thread was in 2018, and I wanted to see you get back at it. :( :)

Fluorescent vs LED Tubes?
Hi all, I am planning my new modelling area and I was wondering about the lighting. I always loved fluorescent tubes but now maybe it is time for LED tubes... Anybody has changed from fluorescent to LED? What is your view of it? Any recommendations?

I recently switched to LED. If you want to do any painting in that light don't use SOME white LEDs. Look for high CRI LEDs. CRI > 90 or even 95. Even for fluorescent bulbs there are special daylight variants. Just looking for color temperature is not enough!
21. August 2019, 20:40
Thanks Ingmar

viva el led

Sergej I
Spanjaard, I develop light for food and to support my hobby, what Ingmar wrote is the most important characteristic. Next to that, also watch out for frequency. LED light power supply mostly works via PWM signal, means it switches on and off many times per second. A LED is not like Wolfram bulbs, it actually turns off during their off time. It just tricks our visual nerve into seeing it as continuous. But in fact, after several hours, eyes and head can hurt us if the power supply is a cheap one.
So my advice, test every light in the store first. Wave your hand in front of the light and see if you can see a strobe-light disco effect. If yes, move on.
Temperature to your own liking, but suggest between 3500K and 5500K. I am using a 3000lm, 98% CRI, 3500K custom made spotlight for main above the table, then a second one commercial, which is a circle like LED, from the side.
2. May, 06:53
Lode Schildermans
Spanjaard, I use cold white LED's for the modelling, especially for the PE, for the visibility. Priming and painting larger surfaces is also possible, but for the fine painting, weathering etc, I only do that with natural light
2. May, 07:54
Rod -
Not sure if it matters, but LEDs emit almost zero UV light.

To all these stuck at home due to the Corona virus outbreak, patience, good health and the best of luck. And happy modelling if you have the chance.
To those in essential services (from health care, security and all other essential services, to those keeping shops open so there is no panic and no shortage of essential products) our gratitude is with you. Good luck
To everybody, from Amsterdam, stay healthy

In Spain we are with the third day of official quarantine. Hopefully these measures will serve to reduce the high level of infected and deaths, which increases day by day.

We are following the evolution in Italy and how it is being solved little by little in China, South Korea or Singapore (Congrats these last countries and much encouragement to Italy. We are with you!). Let us hope that in the rest of Europe and the world the victims do not increase as much as they are doing in Italy and Spain and we hope that everything will be solved as soon as possible.

Luckily we have one of the best healthcare systems in the world and with these recently implemented measures we are trying to prevent it from reaching the brink of collapse.

My enormous thanks to the enormous efforts that are being made by the fantastic health personnel, the people who have to work outside and inside their homes, our bodies and forces of State Security and in general the whole of society. Together we will make it possible to defeat the virus!

Much strength and good luck to all the world!

And please... Keep scrupulous measures to avoid contagion and the spread of the virus (wash your hands frequently, do not touch your eyes, mouth or nose, keep the distance between people, avoid crowds, be at home, avoid displacement as much as possible... Any caution is insufficient).
16. March, 09:34
People seem to think it is a good idea exchanging the trust of having a safe society, with food in the store. I think that is wrong. Also, lack of resources like masks is imo just bizarre, or indicative of government incompetence.

Good thing I bought some extra stuff, little by little. A woman was, or pretending to be coughing at my local store, I'll be wearing one time gloves and a mask next time I go shopping for food (don't have many ) to do what I think is best.

I do wash my hands more often at home during the day, just in case I somehow have the virus, thinking, maybe good idea to try limit the amount of potential virus inside my home, even if a virus might come only from myself. I am so far not sick, or it doesn't feel that way. I did sneeze a couple of times, but I suspect that might perhaps stem from me sanding my models, which sometimes can provoke a sneeze because of the particles.

Last night I swear I saw a local news article that discussed the possibility, that quarantined people could soon maybe go to the stores as long as they kept their distance. Which is somewhat worrysome.

Presumably, and a small hope, is that, being grazed with the virus isn't too bad, but that people that get loads of the virus in a single moment perhaps gets ill.

Since we've been doing this so long in Korea already, I feel that sharing experiences might help others. It's a stressful time for absolutely everyone and it's easy to get angry quickly. Try to keep calm as best you can. Also, it's easy to get tired... and then your mind starts to play tricks on you. In the last month, I was sure I had the virus about five times... every cough, every sneeze... it makes you think... am I? Don't make yourself crazy. Luckily, most of us on this site probably have pretty well-developed levels of patience. ;)
16. March, 10:36
Btw, I am not really angry but I am a little upset. I like to think I have a sensible take on things. The imo only sensible way to run society is if everybody at least act sensibly, so simply being told stuff isn't good enough. Ergo, one can't calculate out, or demand, to sort of nulling out the "egoist" part of being a human being, because society basically relies on it anyway to function, or we would become more like robots which imo would be bad but also highly unrelistic overall.

My life will be about staying at home, so simple enough until I need to buy more food again.

Here's a fun looking tweet, which is also relevant:

My favorite food these days is some kind of rice porrige made my mixing rice + powder from a bag plus dried milk, adding cinnemon and suger, hydrated with boiling water and simmering in a food thermos for 20 min. :) Super lazy, and easier and less messy than cooking it on the stove.
16. March, 11:06
Btw, if one is to believe this here below (supposedly info from WHO), sneezing not belived to be a typical symptom of being infected with COVID-19 (corona virus disease 2019):
