  1. Hey - you go really good at panel lining and weathering. Good work!
  2. Messing around a bit. The Aoshima DeLorean kit has some kind of mechanic installed to make the wheels switch to flying mode. I have to develop a gearbox and the wheel suspension for the back and the front.
  3. Hard to tell from the pictures. The "Hammer approach" would be to paint everything the same color instead of trying to match one part to the color of the rest. Best would be to know which RAL hue is used for the plastic. (https://www.ralcolorchart.com/ral-plastics-p1/white-and-black-hues) You can then go by the RAL color code and match the hand to that color.
  4. I usually use the grey surface primer on my stuff. I even used it on a RC boat and did some test driving in the water with it. The primer is resistant to a lot of stuff, so it should be okay.
  5. Sand the hand a bit first and then use Tamiya Surface Primer. Worked best for me for 3D printed parts. You'll be able to paint it with whatever color you like.
  6. Currently working on this VF-9. It'll be a static 1/72 version, so I can display it with my Hasegawa 1/72 kits. It is far from being finished and with my perfectionism, it'll take some time. Here is a preview: Two Piece Canopy: Done Front Canards: Done Cockpit Main Body: Done Cockpit Panels + Other interior: 0% Pilot Seat: 0% Pilot: 0% Nose: 30% Main Wings: Done Fins: 90% Mainbody: 10% Engine Bays: 0% Arms: 0% Gear: 0% Exhausts: 0% Other yet unknownparts to be added.
  7. Now there is a thread for 3D printing - thanks for the idea
  8. Hey everyone, As 3D printing is becoming more popular and affordable, I thought it'll be great to have a place to share the current progress on active projects without posting new threads. I am currently working on a secret project which will take a while and I am not satisfied with the progress I made so far. I'll fix some parts in the next weeks and post it here. if you want to check out my old printable stuff, you can check it on shapeways: https://www.shapeways.com/shops/urashiman Happy sharing!
  9. Yeah, frikkin' C05 varioprop Graupner Servos. They were huge...
  10. Repurposing servos is something that is done for a long time. In the 90's I used servos as "mini" gearboxes. Check the resistance on the pot, remove the pot and solder in fixed resistors. Et voila, mini electric speed controler with mini electric motor and gearbox. This technique is mostly used for 1:87 RC cars/trucks. Nowadays, people tinkering around with makerboards use it too to create easy 360° movement servos instead of using expensive stepping motors.
  11. Seriously, this is awesome. I need a 3D printer too... but before that a bigger flat. No space in my current one at the moment.
  12. I think I just had a nerdgasm, awesome work!
