Hey Voss,
It takes quite a bit of time to do really good decals yourself. You must find really high grade pics of the decals first then work with them in a paint program to get them down to the correct size and then you have print them out a few times as well until you get it right. If I have to make them I could but its always easier to just buy them first.......Ya know what I mean.. :wink:

Sorry, Vorlander: I was talking pre-computercrash yesterday. I lost all the links in that onfortunate totall loss ofcourse. But it's really not hard at all to get yourself started. Google, remember ? :wink:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mTVuiZ3 ... ature=plcp

Plenty of extra links starting from these two.

And I advise to register on a modelers' forum. Always plenty of people that want to share their knowledge.

I've just tried to send you a first e-book on modeling, but it's too big to get through. 35Mb.
:cry:

If I may be of some service here:

http://www.ww1aircraftmodels.com/

This is absolutely the best sight if you are interested in the larger 1/32 scale kits.

http://wingnutwings.com/ww/

the best 1/32 scale kits on earth, pricy but well worth it.

Thats fine Vossie you can still upload it to one of those sites and then just send him the link. Most sites allow up to 50 mbs for a file.....

I have a whole library of ebooks for modeling you name the plane and I have it...over 350 ebooks in all. Theres a good website out there called ebookee check it out for free downloadable books...just

Example:

http://ebookee.org/Albatross-Aces-of-Wo ... 13685.html

Furthermore, If you really want good videos like Voss stated in his post! YOUTUBE has everything from best glue to airbrushing techniques to weathering and displaying..just do a search for what ever you need help with...

Hijack away, Wolf, no prob at all and no need to get defensive. It's not my thread and why should I lose time when you have everything lined up already ?
Easy peasy. :wink:
Post fixed ?!
