Hi to all!

New to the forum? Introduce yourself here.

Postby Cush » Thu Oct 15, 2020 10:11 pm

I've seen that some members of this forum visited our website.
I don't know who mentionned it here but I thank him (or her) for it.
I'm not a specialist of 1/16 scale, not even a good modelist. Anyway, as a kid, and building models myself, I always fell frustrated to see them slowly disapearing under thin layers of dust.
Then, working in electronics, I had the opportunity to "cure" my old frustration. We've designed a small electronic module to "give life" to small models.
Our module fit most models (planes, cars, ships, tanks, trucks...) and scales (1/700 - 1/24) of plastic kits.
I will post a few videos of the models here. If you have any question, I will gladly answer.

Hello and welcome to the forum Christophe :wave:

I'm sure you'll like it here, we have a very friendly bunch of members, although some of them are a bit weird ;)

Enjoy the forum.

Mick.

That's just down the road from where I take my car for its yearly road worthy test, we call an MOT test (Ministry Of Transport test).

I was at a paintball event :D

And I only put on women's clothing at the weekends, although the lockdown has messed up hanging around in bars :(

Sorry about this Christophe.

Welcome again, especially as you are now Vendor blue :thumbup:

It's time for you to display your website.
Hopefully members have translation programs running on their devices until you sort out the English option on your website :thumbup:

I'm sure there is going to be some overlap between what most of us do here and your work (we do have a few 1/35 enthusiasts too). There are a lot of potential projects out there for smaller vehicles in 1/16 (Bren Carrier, CV35, Renault UE, TKS, Weasel, etc.) that would benefit from your expertise in motorising 1/35 kits :thumbup:

Looking at your aircraft motor and light kits makes me think that you could help me with the 3D printed Piper Cub I have in mind as well 8|

most welcome!
... but don't expect me to make it fly...
Strangely enough, I never thought of 1/16 scale while working on this project but now that you mention these vehicles, there might be something to do...

I fully expect the Cub to have the aerodynamics of a house brick by the time I am done printing it, plus the club insurance doesn't cover 'misguided missiles' :D
I will settle for it to be able to taxi ;)
