Well, my new air compressor came in yesterday. Can’t wait to give it a spin. I’ll let you know how it performs. The other one is still working, but I thought I’d get another one for “just in case.”
Another video up on Youtube, this time its a review of a 1:35 scale ruler. Be sure to check it out and subscribe.
I remember reading in Finescale Modeler magazine or on their website about people trying to get or build their own vacuforming machine. Vacuforming is a way to mold objects by heating a sheet of plastic, then pulling it down over a vacuum table, which sucks the plastic over a pattern. Ta da, a copy of the surface is born. This has been used in model kits for quite awhile, especially in MiniArt kits.
I was flipping around YouTube and came across some videos that show you how to make a vacuforming machine, so I decided to post them here. Some of these machines are pretty big and not made for modeling purposes, but I think they’re still useful.
Hopefully you can use this info.
