    There is also a Magnifier setting in the Accessibility section and a Magnifying widget for the Command Center. Both are part of iOS 11. Eric

    Scale Motorsport is closing

    I've 'known' Matt Wells for quite a long time - he was one of the earliest sponsors for F1M.com - and while I've only actually run into him a few times in real life, he's always been a great promoter of scale modeling, especially F1 models. Scale Motorsport will be missed... Eric
  6. Yeah I have the big E kit too. Have not started it. But the D7 may be something to dive into. E

    Forum Update Soon?

    It looks like I may need to update the Forum software soon. We are seeing a lot of bogus account creation requests... I figure its because we're using an older version of the software. When I do the update, it will be late in the evening as to not disrupt things. I may only be able to post an alert an hour or so before I disable login access... Thanks, Eric

    Could you try going to https://www.whatsmybrowser.org and sending me the link in the box via a private message (or email to webmaster@ipmsusa.org) I'd like to see if it is a browser issue... Thanks, Eric

    Little hiccup logging into new forum

    Luckily IPMS purchases the Forum software, if I had to develop it, it would never happen as its so massively complicated. And the upgrade was quite large in this case in terms of the software and server changes that had to be made... Next up, the Gallery.... Eric

    Forum Update Soon?

    Try going to this page and editing the settings >> https://forum.ipmsusa3.org/index.php?/notifications/options/ I think this system has changed and there was one option that users could not change that should be editable. Eric

    Forum Update Soon?

    I have done the upgrade to the Forums... you will notice a number of changes. First is you can now log in with either your display name or email address. The theme is also different - I will need to do a little work on that... If you have any issues, please let me know. Eric

    WW1 German biplane on this site's home page question

    I took the pic, but really don't remember much. Its most like a Wingnut Wings Albatross... but no idea which one, but likely a D.V (a?).. 1/32 scale... I think the decals might be from Pheon >> https://www.pheondecals.com Eric
