    3D printer for Modeling

    I'll forward you my "how to" CD" covering the subject of making molds. It covers all the same techniques I use at Flagship for making the molds here.

    3D printer for Modeling

    I haven't used a 3D printer at the library providing your library has one at all. To get a part made to the quality you and I want would require a pretty expensive printer which I doubt (but I may be wrong here) most libraries have the budget for. Moreover, a good scanner to produce complex parts isn't cheap either. Call your local library and ask what they have for public use. Even better, check your local Vo-Tech school. They are always wanting projects for their students. Why would you want to scan and print an existing part when you can more easily make a mold and cast your own? Just curious.

    OOB question

    As an ex-head ship judge, we (the head judges) had an "unspoken rule" that the modeler in the event of a category placement question, the modeler gets to choose. FWIW.

    OOB question

    ONE figure not performing any task is traditionally allowed for scale and not judged. I would suggest NOT placing the figure on the model, rather on the ground. FWIW.

    Bah Humbug!

    Nice painting and a striking likeness to the actor. Personally, I prefer the "Scrooge" musical version with Albert Finney.

    Do you "stiffen" the chain or let it just sway?

    re: Judging was: Haters group

    Pete, Nick, I understand that everyone has been civil, but unfortunately, I am the "Forum Police" (moderator) charged by the web master to enforce the rules of the forum. Staying on topic is one of the rules, so all I ask is that you move your discussion to a new thread and debate away. It's an interesting subject that should be discussed further.

    Starting to wander here a bit guys. Let's stay on topic.

    Haters group

    I agree Dave. We used to have a modeler in our group (he passed away) who built models that couldn't "compete" in a contest, but he didn't care. Seams not or poorly filled, less than perfect paint finish, decals, etc. He built models "his" way and enjoyed the hobby as much as anyone in the club and we welcomed his contributions as much as anyone else's.

    Thanks for asking the flat coat question Gil. I had the same question. Really nice looking job.

    Good Plastic Model Sailing Ship??

    The 1/150 scale Revell "Vasa" is one the best plastic sailing ship kits around today reflecting the more up-to-date tooling. The Revell Constitution kits, while good quality for their time, show the mold's age and dated engineering and tooling technology. Both of which I am sure you noticed. The Vasa is also manufactured by Revell Germany (I think), which usually turns out better quality products. FWIW.

    3D printer for Modeling

    Go to Shapeways.com. I had someone design the 1/192 scale American civil war figures I sell on my web site and I was very pleased. There is a whole section there containing folks who can design the STL files for you.
  13. Thanks much for the link. I placed the order.

    Sandle Hobbies

    They were a client of mine some years back. If it's the same Sandle Hobbies I dealt with, they were based in Australia.
