Soldering Landing Gear — Old-School Tips for Giant Scale Mains

Soldering Landing Gear — Old-School Tips for Giant Scale Mains

When I made my landing gear for my Sopwith Camel project, I did it the old-fashioned way–I cut and bent all the parts from music wire, wrapped the joints with thin copper wire and soldered everything together.

DIY Shop Table (you’ll wonder how you lived without it!)

As a long-time-fan of the PBS show “New Yankee Workshop” I’ve seen quite a few good woodworking projects, but none more handy than the large roll around shop table. I knew I’d have to build it one day when I had the room for it in a workshop I hadn’t even yet built. Sorry to […]

I know I am not alone when I mention that there is nothing like the looks of a giant-scale airplane, complete with all of the bells and whistles. From panel lines to rivets, sliding canopies, flaps, retracts, and lights, the list can go on and on! However, with all of these added features and functions […]

Painting Micro Pilot Figures — A little detail that adds a lot!!!

For the Flyzone Micro Albatros and the micro Fokker Dr.I Triplane, there’s a little white styrofoam, super lightweight pilot bust included in the box. But few RC modelers add this little guy because it requires some painting to make him look like a WW1 aviator instead of a snowman! Here’s some tips to make the […]
