Unfortunately, if you buy the Voyager PE set for the 251/9 you may wish to pick up the Aber set for the 250/8 anyway as there's virtually no detailing for the gun. As it happens I'm using the 250/8 set on mine so opening the package wasn't such a disappointment.

And yes, I'm still alive, BTW.

Not as yet, unfortunately my digital camera's macro function, when set to "best quality" has gone dodgy on me all of a sudden - the images are turning out heavily pixilated and covered in day-glo green dots (!!) I'm still trying to figure out a way around this...

What's ISO? I have a Kodak DX3700, basically nothing fancy but it's worked adequately up to now... I've reformatted it, let's see how that works.

iso/asa- this is the "speed" setting of the "film".
The lower the number the better. Higher numbers will give you "noise with your images. Maybe that was the problem...just a guess

Ah, I should have remembered that from photography 101... duh. No, my camera doesn't have a ISO simulator that's aware of.

ISO simulator?
Many,if not most digital cameras have optional settings for ISO/ASA. This attunes the camera to light sensitivety, important if you have optional shooting settings (aperature priority,shutter priority etc.) In your camera it appears, if I'm reading this specs sheet right- to have an Auto setting of 100 or 200 ASA.
http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/spec...dak_dx3700.asp
try doing a search on that website's forum using your camera name.
Is there any improvement since your adjustment?
The camera may be kaput,ja?

I have entered this build in two contests this fall- one at the Alberta AMPS type show were it took best German Military Subject, and then more recently a I.P.M.S. show here in Vancouver were it was panned due to some "build" problems. (IPMS rules are more focused on the actual "building" of a kit- no glue marks etc.)
A quote from the judge
Quote:
At first glance your kit was very striking, the paint finish and chipping/rain streaks very well done! But, the front wheels were all askew, the road wheels projected out beyond the tracks, worse on one side then the other, the top 'shell' fit to the bottom 'shell' was off on both sides and there was a big glossy glue stain on the wooden slat crew seat in the back.
part of my response to that,
Quote:
But perhaps the fact that I haven't glued them may have something to do with that. That one I kinda expected- it's an easy fix once I double check my references on the exact angle on the toe in position.
As for the road wheels going beyond the tracks- I guess that was the luck of how I placed the model down on the table- as they are loose and there position shifts- I guess next time I will have to be more careful about that. The tracks are from the DML kit I believe.
If you look at the attached image you can see that the road wheels are right on the very edge of the tracks- sorta like mine. But Like I say I guess things were misaligned because of my placement- next time I'll check.
so always check the tracks when you place your kit down to be judged- the workable links may shift into an unfavourable position.

So after rechecking my references I have to say that I was wrong when I said that my top fit - it is a short shell after all
Maybe look to these threads for some fixes.

My humble apologies to anyone who may have been steered wrong about the fit issue. I live and learn.
