I love the matching display stand too, how did you do that?

well, I took the BW stand and colored it to mach the paint scheme on the plane. I'm considering sending it in to chip, after the upright piece is tweaked. (it used to be four- sided, but it has to three-sided to work) In all I have a stand for the PT-17 & the PT-26, the P-26 & B-10 are to follow.
it could be done for any aircraft, as long as you have a paint program that can read or convert PDFs.

Thanks, it adds a lovely finishing touch to the model. Where did you get the artwork from? I have Photoshop CS2 that I use to edit .pdf files btw.

I stole the picture of the plane of the top of the PT-26 page, and the insignia is modified one from the bone yard folder, (which you can no longer download, but you can generaly copy it from the aircraft the stand is for) and I drew the red/white/blue strips.

my latest, a R.A.F. desert camo P-4C repaint I'm working on.
It was originally supposed to just test build to make sure every thing lined up correctly, (which it didn't) but I got a little carried away and added guns...

and a free-flight glider P-26 peashooter, that rusty metal hook thingy in the cowling is the rubber band catapult launching hook, which dose double duty as a nose wight as well! The pilot cutout is from the Grumman duck.

although, the P-26 is such a funky little plane, that I don't fly it much for fear of destroying it.

Very nice John! For being a beta, the P-40 sure looks nice. That peashooter looks like it would be a lot of fun. However, I tend to get into trouble at work when I start having "fun" with planes. :twisted:

I agree with willygoat, the Kittyhawk looks amazing :D. Nice Peashooter too.

Nice work. My repainting abilities are very limited; I wish I could do as well.

thanks fellers! the P-40 still needs a bit o' work and new sharks teeth, when its done it'ill be in the markings of R.A.F. No. 112 squadron. BTW, it its a Tomahawk (P-40B-C) not a Kittyhawk (P-40D-N). The Peashooter is easy to build, 'cept for the landin' gear, which are kinda tricky

I quite like the little pilot in the peashooter. I often felt a few simple, side-view pilots in sitting position, would be a great addition.

It would be nice if there was generic pilots for WWI, II, and the jet age, that you could scale up or down to fit.

Does anyone know if such a 2-D thing exists?

The guys from the "Flying Barrel" model here would work for some WWI applications

Both are super nice. I have a P-40 underway myself. I hope it turns out as eyecatching as your beta build did.

John do you know of a paint program that can convert pdf files. I am very interested in making model stands to match each model. A free one would be nice :)

Thanks Bob

Bob,
you might be able to use GIMP, it is sorta like photoshop, 'cept with out the price tag. It runs on both Macs & PCs. If you have a Mac, (like I do) you could also use Seashore, witch is a simpler GIMP compatible paint program. Both can import PDFs and save them as tiff, png, ect. And both are free!!

probably should 'ave hidden the white edges, they stick out like a sore thumb at this scale! I might be able to get smaller if I used lighter card stock, hmmm.....
