TOPIC: Revell Ar-196A3 & HpH Catapult Launcher

Revell Ar-196A3 & HpH Catapult Launcher 07 Apr 2019 15:42 #1

I really enjoyed building this aircraft. It was a bargain too, $35-38 for the kit. It is a big box full of well molded styrene. On the other hand, the HpH Catapult launcher was a bit more of a challenge. The largest challenge was the sled that carries the aircraft. The kit parts were miscast and very flimsy. I did not feel they would support the aircraft securely. I had to duplicate the parts with brass tubing and solder it.
I documented the build on our club's website. The link:
www.tulsaipms.org/forum/on-the-bench/1-3...ph-catapult-launcher
Please note that there is more than one page.

Thanks for looking.
Jager
PS: I would have posted pix but they caused the MA website to go into FATAL SERVER problems. The link has the pictures

Trying to grab your last image, yeah some funky stuff going on in that URL. Seems to work though. I just right click on the image and copy the location. Then put it in our bbcode image link like this.

Even if I try to save the image it's coming up with some sort of Web extension.

Wonderful aircraft, if you attach the original image I'm sure it'll show up here.

EDIT by Saul Garcia:
Image above is for troubleshooting. It appeared in one of the IPMS newsletters (Saskatoon)
by Jason McQueen. It took Best Aircraft, Best of Show and Peoples' Choice at Bridgecon 2018.
I told you photobucket sucks...

Thanks for the help. It is not working for me. The above test image is not my model though. I will wait to see if the weirdness of posting an image gets resolved, then I will attempt to post up a pic.

You know our pal Paul right? Maybe he can help.

What browser are you using?

Thanks for your concern Moon Puppy. I did talk to Paul. We came up with nothing. I did a post to our website and all worked well. I have posted previously on MA with no problems. I will attempt tomorrow after the server gets an overnight rest.

Run CCleaner or delete internet cache on your computer. Promise you there's nothing wrong on our side.

Kurt is too modest to tell you that he took top awards at our show last Saturday with that model. I would like to say that I had a lot to do with his awards but that is not the case. When he brought it to a club meeting this past year I knew that it was a winner. I would love to see how it would do in a nationals.

Kurt, I am not sure if this is where your problem lies, but the "Red Box of NO" in the upload in Coppermine can be fixed easily. You just have to do it each session. At least it is a simple fix and I think it has something to do with how Adobe flash works with Google Chrome.

Thanks HE for your help. I can get thru this now. I am held up once I get the download into the Album now. Error is that the file is too big.
The photos were taken on my DSLR in raw image mode. I am computer challenged, if the signs were not evident enough. I am attempting to figure out a way to get a smaller image out of my Apple photos.
Once again I thank all those who are taking their modeling time to help me with my rookie posting issue.
