Yes LR, pardon the pun, but... You're screwed! ;)
You'll have to motorize yours, even if it's only to show the inner workings of the steam engine's transmission system.
Have you seen that beam going up and down? Fascinating! :)

Very beautiful. Red stars on Russian green is an attractive combination. And the model really is something special.

This is the first step in the Vega series project...

The interiors and the side windows, which don't add much, won't be used, to move things along...this is mostly a painting and decaling project.

Two versions were completed..one Luftwaffe...the other Spanish Civil War

These are interesting kits but its hard to recommend them...too flimsy....I also noticed the wheels of the Civil War version need attention

I once voted for Bob Dole to be President of the United States....because we've never had a president named "Bob".

That made the choice in decal scheme easy!

Go Bob!!

Thanks...this one will bring out the smiles for sometime.

This whole project will be put aside while new decals arrive (more and different version of the Vega have been discovered) and now, someone is making masks for these models but they aren't shipping yet....bottom line...the Vega project is on hold.

All my projects have now shifted into parts prep only.....with the smoke in the western US, the windows can't be opened to ventilate for painting....

They say the skies will clear in about 5 days...until then...sanding, trimming and scrapping will be the order of the day.

I have a Scalemates admission to make here...perhaps I should PM Tim so he will be sure to see it!

Seriously, here is what happened...that little model was moved again and again for testing of the backgrounds, eventually fell on the floor and was slightly damaged...then it had little pieces of carpet fuzz all over it....

long story short....i had touched up the model to get rid of some spots on the left side, but never got a decent photo with that fix...so i touched up an earlier series of photos and got rid of the spots.

my only defense is that i am convinced this little guy looked like this at SOME point...maybe just before the big crash on the floor.

there...i feel better...honesty can be refreshing to the soul.

(i'm going to leave that crooked tail wheel there (which disappeared entirely at some point in this back and forth process) as a testament to honesty.)

What a lovely little aircraft and a nicely built model... I like the rigging too, very neat! I do feel your pain as it crashed... good thing there are no signs of the mishap any more. But did the kit really come in that huge box on picture 1? :-o

Thank you folks....those new ICM boxes are little works of art in themselves

Rigging little 1/72 biplanes (this one isn't big...you noticed!) without eyelets was the learning goal...perfection was not achieved but the result showed real promise.

When creating a project, the photo says it should be 1440x400 pixels, which is a widescreen landscape cropping, cutting off the top and bottom of a normal photo.

However, sometimes, it works the other way and the project photo comes out full frame.

Does anyone know the secret sauce to always get a full frame photo for a project?
