Hey great job. Get some detail pics of these and the rest up pretty soon, OK? Are you doing these for sale or just showing off your work. If you are doing them for sale you will probably get your thread shut down pretty soon so figure how to get us some links to reach you or something. If just for show then you deserve some bragging room.

Over on the right side of your screen is an area called 'community search". If you put in a search question about posting pictures from fotki you will get the instructions that have already been given on other threads. I use photobucket myself, so afraid I can't help you with that. Good luck.

Good lord that is some fine work. How much of this stuff did you scratchbuild? This is insane good. I'll bet if you ever decide to market any of these you will have plenty of buyers.

I spend 7 days and 9 hours each day to make the master and then the molds

 part of this time  to made the correct scale  parts from pictures.
and the casting techniques, can you see in magazines and books several casting techniques but no one will show the secrets to make the more complex parts maybe youtube show a little more

about the scale 1/64   in my opinion the scale changes everything

the same level of details to 1/64 scale is no problem but who will pay for it ??and the machined for this small parts can be a nightmare, no problem for a basic model with some details

all is scratch built from styrene and machined metal
the lathe was made from over 100 individual parts and reduced to  56 after casting it 
yes all was made for sell but not like a kit because it not easy  to assemble, I have too a replica of the power hammer pullmax style sheet metal machine  (can you see it at a lot of garages on tv shows)   and old band saw machine

Thank you

yes, I understand you

II am a modeler and I never gonna change it.

and a seller never gonna have the level of details of a modeler

primarily I am a modeler and I don't have problems to share my tech with another modelers, in fact I sent a article to mr Ken ´´how to make realistic spiderwebs´´ to publish in this magazine 2-3  years ago
