    Hello all,

    Just wanted to introduce myself. I've been modeling on and off since age 5 but very, very new to forums. My 16 year old son insists I need to learn "social networking" on the computer, so here goes ( In my day it was called going out for a beer after work). Please excuse me while I make mistakes in the future but I shall endeavour to do better in the future. Thanks til later.

    Thank you again for the warm welcome! And now for something completely different . . . A man with a stupid question. My current obsession is the Fleet Air Arm Martlet. My next project is the Martlet Mk. I. The difficulty is the more bulbous cowl, owing to the larger diameter of the Wright Cyclone engine, and how to manufacture it. I have resigned myself to vacuforming one and despite the excellent research material gathered so far from Bruce Archer, Scott Spencer, Tom Cleaver, the FAA website and others, I have yet to find a really decent photograph or schematic showing the profile of the cowl. Could someone please direct me to which portion of the forum I should be looking at? Thank You.

    P.S. Yes I know, I am long winded.

    Welcome to the site. Greetings from Poland. :wave:

    Of course the forum area you might be interested in , is the Modeling Section. There you can find a great selection of threads regarding the model building, etc... Also the Techical section can be a great source for that. For finding pictures you should use the Aircraft Pictures one.
    As far as the way for making a such parts like the engine cowling, you might find interesting the thread :

    http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/bu...w-make-your-own-pilots-seat-models-26095.html

    The way of making a pilot's seat can be used for making many different details including entire models.

    That is a most excellent how-to article, simple yet effective. I shall give it a try on the new build. I shall also take your advice and move my labours over to the modelling and technical sections. Thank You!
