    that region has a colorful history - the gold rushes of the 1800's were sprawling.
    I hope you all have a milder summer this year John -

    Heywood Planes on youtube

    For those who don't know I have a youtube channel available where I post MSFS videos - no narration, just in-game captures, occasionally with music soundtracks added at low volume, as well as some build progress, and otherwise descriptive videos of the static display models I have built.
    if anyone is interested the link is here - Heywood Planes - YouTube
    and in my signature.
    The channel was never intended to be a revenue source and is far from becoming one (for me that is - youtube adds commercials to every video that has over 100 views but that is revenue they use to maintain that colossal enterprise of theirs) .
    I started making the build vids as a way of answering questions about the projects I had done from this and other forum communities that still photos couldn't answer, and because I like doing the 'work'..
    Since I am an avid flight sim enthusiast I have also posted some MSFS content (more recently) to help maintain regular input and keep things 'fresh' as it were.
    I thought some folks here might find them interesting maybe, is the only reason for this post.
    As you were then..

    almost a quarter of a million views to date - quite a milestone.
    Hopefully there will be a few more projects to post progress on..

    Hi Daveroo - thanks for subscribing to the channel.
    I have two methods for posting videos, one for the builds and another for the flight sims
    I use a GoPro camera to record the builds, then transfer those recordings to my laptop where they can then be uploaded to YT. The camera has a built-in microphone so I feel compelled to try and provide something more than the clatter of tools and my heavy breathing - so these are narrated..
    The PC recordings are made with Nvidia’s Experience overlay. This is why there is no narration from me - just the video and audio captured ‘in-game’….and those recordings can be then uploaded to YT directly.
    I hope that this is helpful.

    Hi,yes thanks on the YT help,the truck ,you use a AITM resin cab?..thats a good lookin truck.ive about got my apartment set up..i moved from the boat in california to price utah on June 1st.im just now about ready to start some builds.got a long list of projects.gonna give me hours of fun.yay

  11. #461
    the trucks are all built straight from the box - no resin castings were used. I only augment these builds with solder, aluminum tubing, and card stock or sheet styrene.
    I hear there are some nice places in Utah - looking forward to visiting the Parks there someday. Brice, Zion, etc..

    one more plastic project - the 1/9th scale WLA 750 Harley from Italeri...but as a civilian



    it's going to take a while..

    THIS is the target


    I'll be making those fender skirts out of .020 sheet styrene - aside from that everything is in the kit.

    front fender light, tail light, license frame and plate attached..

    I modified the tail light bracket (cut it down to make it skinnier for the single light can) and also the front fender light (made a lens for it out of balsa with a ring of solder)
