    The planes come labeled in ziplock style bags

    I received my order from Table Top Flights the other day. Table Top Flights? Member mikejr74 is offering planes for a heck of a great price and they are very clean prints. The range is rather large, with both 1:144 World War One and 1:200 World War Two aircraft available. I'll leave it to him to post more about his products, but I am very happy with the quality of the prints and the service. I sent ...

    Leutnant Klein's Pfalz D.XII

    Some time ago in a galaxy far, far...well, maybe more like on blog post from a long time ago, I had talked about doing a Shapeways Pfalz D.XII. That was before the big selloff, plus that particular Shapeways plane was printed in the white natural versatile plastic which, while others have created some magic with that finish, is a grainy mistress. That Pfalz was included in the selloff, and no more thought had been ...

    Other than adding a peg to the bottom of the fuselage, this project is complete!

    The sharp eyed among you will notice that the crosses are not 100% correct - I had ordered a sheet of the Mark I decals (modern Luftwaffe) and the picture in the description did not allow a clear and large view of the crosses and so I thought I would be receiving crosses with no white borders. Even the decal sheet, being on a light blue background, was in my hands, ...

    So odd what the digital camera will pick up...this bird looks much nicer with the naked eye!

    Prop in place, details painted, varnish applied, and the plane is nearing completion. Another touch up of matte varnish and perhaps before that a couple of touchups of paint. Then off to order decals!

    The grainy finish is evident in the picture, even after two costs of paint.

    While I am awaiting the next Siemens-Schuckert D.I to make its way to Cincinnati, I have decided to work on another Shapeways plane, this one being the Pfalz Dr.I offering from Decapod. Ordered in the Gray PA12, which is my preferred base material due to inherent "primed" finish, I've had this cool little beast - for me one of the most aesthetically pleasing ...
