Archer Fine Transfers has a new .PDF catalog that has all their 3D resin decals in actual size when you print it out. I have used their weld beads and I find them to be a realistic and easy product to use. I would strongly suggest printing this out as a reference to the sizes of their many sheets of various details. Look at the top of the first page on their site for the link to download the catalog. I would suggest getting Adobe Reader to use if you don't have it as my first printing of the particular PDF file using the default Windows 7 printer was not satisfactory.
Edit: I looked back at my post and realize I didn't stress the value of this catalog. All the rivets, louvers, treadplate, fasteners, welds .. etc. are printed ACTUAL size when you print the PDF file. Just hold a line of printed rivets against your build and you can see exactly which size you need. Simple.
Since I haven't had one competition this year I am regulated to here, but I've had a blast and have worked hard and long. So here's a few shots of some that might end up done in 2014, but no promises!
I still can't get touch up paint for my 2013 Mini Countryman but at least the 5th seat for the interior got done.
The '32 ford has progressed to paint!
Did a lot on making the '69 VW Bug I owned converting from a '66. This is the IRS I made that no Beetle kit has .
'81 Plymouth Reliant my daughter had got paint and the engine dirtied up
My first Porsche 944, an '84, is getting close to completion. Here in primer with the fender protectors showing.
My last Porsche 944, a '91 S2, is ready for a second painting after the first had to be stripped ..
My wife's old '95 Legacy is moving again after I bought a 2nd kit to get a new rear window.
I just realized I DID finish something, but just a die cast I only painted the interior to match my son's '95 Subaru WRX for my grandson.
Pershing Missile ... This was my "gun" in the Army and I found a model on ebay to build it! I already built the tracked carrierand the missile model is a bit off scale so I'll probably have to scratch build the erector launcher. This will be On the Workbench for some time ... I haven't even posted a thread on it yet.
The mountains (hills?) of Western Mass are white this morning as everyone prepares to come to Grandma's (oh my, that's US!) house for T-Day. I'm feeling good about the All-4 Mini I got last winter as I cruised down the hill for breakfast! Only about 2" but enough this early in the season.
I came on this demo of Beamng and it a blast to just try the FREE tech demo. It's a driving game that promises real time injury to your vehicle. The demo is just a test area you can drive a pickup into all manner of rocks, walls and jumps that will cause damage as this ...
It is only in Alpha now but you can join in for a modest $15. I have nothing to do with this but thought some might get a kick out of it after all those driving simulations that do no damage to your vehicle!
