TOPIC: Eindecker IV

Eindecker IV 29 Oct 2019 20:37 #1

I've decided. I've been collecting stuff for this one for a while.

I'll get a proper start photo when I start cutting sprue. May salvage some parts off the first one, like the elevator control horns and shaft I made out of brass.

Just ordered like $50 worth of Bob's Buckles. I've been back and forth between those and Gaspatch and I think the functionality of Bob's is better.
I told you photobucket sucks...

Got an email from "Bob" this am, he's already got my order in the post. That's service!

I will be watching on this Bob. Am curious as to how the Bob's buckles compare to the Gas Patch variety.

It's a matter of taste Paul. Gaspatch looks the part more so but I find more functionality, more options with Bob's Buckles.

Bob it is really easy to make your own eyelets and parts for the turnbuckles. I think in one of my builds I showed the tool and the parts required. I'll look for the stuff and repost if you want. Paul the Gaspatch turnbuckles are grown metal while bobs are eyelets and thin brass rod. I have found 1/48 Gaspatch buckles are better looking on 1/32 scale a/c than the 1/32 turnbuckles.

I know James, I'm just lazy and Bob appreciates my support. :rotf
