Re: Airbus Beluga XL + extras

Very cool work. I designed a 3D model for a loader too, but have yet to buy it off Shapeways to see how it fits this plane.

Re: 1/400 Airport Fire station First Look!!

Looks warped and has nicks in it. I guess this is 3D printed. Will the final production be 3D printed or injection molded? Nice to see new diorama accessories, keep it going.

Re: My collection

Pretty nice. I'm sure many are interested in what cabinet that is with that mirror and all. I would want to drill more holes in to add shelves but the extra weight might be too dangerous.

Re: Photo Diorama

Nice, I didn't know JC made some new jetways so ordered one myself.
Print some vertical backgrounds or buildings to place the jetway against to complete the scene.

Re: PHX vs JC 787-9 Round 2 - Glossy or not?

I would get a thin tip Sharpie and try to cover the scratch. Alcohol wipe will remove it if you mess up.

Yes, matte finish is more realistic although I still like my glossy PHX models.

I think the only one in demand is the 747 SCA with the space shuttle on it since no one has made a newer one. Hopefully NG decides to make this set in the future.
