  1. Great job on the dio. I really like the scratched shovel. Here in NYC the second the truck goes by, people are out throwing it back into the street. For me, I found out by accident that (again here in NYC) if you move onto a one way street, and live on the left side, you'll never be plowed in. All the plows are angled to the right! LOL :D
  2. Agreed. The craftsman style RR models are great for super detailing fans. It's also a good way to get a handle on how to design your own buildings.
  3. [/size]Hi gang, I saw this over at Starship Modeler. Member "karim" made an app for the iPhone that - "is a set of calculation tools designed for scale model builders, model-railroad enthusiasts, scratch-builders, or anyone else who needs to quickly and easily convert between measurements in different scales, figure out the scale of a model or model part, or perform other modeling-related calculations. Model Kit version 1.0 features: Convert measurements from one scale to another - enter measurements in inches, feet, millimeters, centimeters, and meters and even mix units during input - enter arbitrary scales, or select from a library of common numeric scales, architectural & engineering scales, and model railroad scales - flag commonly used scales as "favorites" for easy access Calculate unknown scales - Add the calculated scale to the library Convenient Unit converter Cone shell calculator - enter top diameter, bottom diameter, and cone height * More features to come in future updates " http://www.karimnassar.com/makery/model-kit Its only $4.99 and can be gotten from the App Store by searching "Model Kit" I just bought it and it's everything you'd expect. Its perfect for people like me who's PC is not near my model building room. BTW I have no involvement in this, just a happy customer...
  4. Excellent job! Very nicely done - and very cool it is displayed.. I know it was supposed to be OOB, but I think I still would have gotten rid of the gold coloring on the CM in favor of the real silver. ;) A year ago I was lucky enuff to get a Buzz vehicle into a case the the Buzz Aldrin science Center in NJ - Gemini
  5. Site must have bandwidth problems now., I'll have a look later. But a few IPMS Nats ago, Mat Irvine, spfx guru for some BBC sci-fi shows and IIRC did some model work on 2001, gave a talk about the difference between real models and CGI - an excellent talk While there is a lot CGI can do, IMHO I prefer a real model.

    FWIW, if it's not too deep I use the Mr. Surfacer 500. Any deeper and I use good ol' Aves. Let dry and then wet sand.
  7. WOW! $500! Wouldn't that be nice to get.
  8. Woof - whats up rob. Glad to see you here. Been hanging here for a while but mostly right when the Nats cities are selected and when the Nats get closer. Otherwise not a lot going on here in our categories.

  9. Nice link. While I'm not big in ST, I wish someone would produce the "old Spock's" starship -
