  2. Welcome Vitor. You’re obviously experienced in all the skills required so please feel free to share your knowledge and models in any of the sections on the forum. Max
  3. Thanks, Max. I had a lot of fun with this one, and the combination of 3D printing and custom paint masks takes the modeller one step closer to being fully self-sufficient. Kev
  4. Not even remotely my kind of thing Kev, but I can most certainly recognise and applaud the work, the techniques and the skill that has gone into creating it….well done my friend! 👋
  5. Hello, I am a modeler for more than 20 years. I'm a graphic designer, in my day, I work with a two plotter one prints and the other cut's the two have 1.62 mt. My software is CorelDraw and Illustrator. In the begin of the pandemic i started to draw my cut masks, for my planes and for auto windows. i have some drawing, hope i can help.. Thanks in advance for add me Vitor A.

  7. That’s a good thought Guy. I have cut masks for several people (over on LSP) but purely on a “friends” basis and on the understanding that whilst I know my way around a Silhouette machine and software, I do not pretend to be a professional and therefore do not supply them with any guarantee of quality or accuracy. I would be willing to consider doing a similar thing here if required for cost of materials and postage. Max
  8. Interesting idea, Guy. At the moment we don't really have such a place in a dedicated sense, as I always assumed members would make such requests in the applicable sub-forum that relates to their request. But a dedicated section would make things clearer, so I'll give it some thought! Kev
  9. Hi everyone, hope all is well in your neck of the woods. This forum is a magnificent resource for all things masking/cutting etc. but not everyone owns or has access to a printer/cutter. Many however, would very much like to take advantage of the benefits of masks on their models. Since I'm new here I may well have missed a sub forum so please forgive me but, is there anywhere on site here where requests are placed? With so much talent available on tap, it occured to me that there could be a demand for custom masks? Is this something that has already been discussed? Cheers, Guy
  10. This was supposed to be a quick little side project to give me an excuse to print something on my Elegoo Saturn 3D printer, but like most of my projects, dragged on and got more complicated. I decided to try to recreate the metallic effects and overall weathering as close to what we see on screen as possible, and late in the piece, I decided it needed a base for stability purposes. The lettering on the base was cut iwth my Silhoutte Portrait and applied over a white base, and SMS Jet Black applied over the top. Took me 3 goes to get this right! So what was supposed to take a few days has ended up taking a few months, but here it is. Thanks for looking! Now I need to get back to one of my many unfinished aircraft projects! Kev
  11. Hi guys, thanks for the warm welcome. Still finding my way around but all looks very exciting. 🙂
  12. ‘bout time you joined Guy……where’ve you been?? 😄 Good to see you here my friend.
  13. Hi Guy, good to see you here. Quite a few folks here from LSP you'll recognise.
  14. Hi Kev, good to see you. Thanks for having me. 😊 👍
  15. Welcome aboard, Guy! Great to have you here. Kev
  16. Hello all, I discovered this forum from LSP. I've modelled for many years and I'm fascinated by modern advancements in home diy tools and techniques. Very much looking forward to seeing what everyone's up to. Cheers, Guy
  17. Thanks for providing these - will come in very helpful for my build.
  18. View File TM-Windscreen-324872.studio3 I've been working on a pair of ICM Tiger Moths, and in common with many ICM kits, there is a mask template in the instructions which was easily used to produce these masks. I thought that as we have recent kits of this from Airfix in both 1/48 and 1/72, I'd include these by downscaling the 1/32 masks as detailed in a note on the file. There is also a separate set of drawings off the cutting area: these are there as an indicator of which mask is which, they correspond to the ICM instructions, thus they are not guaranteed to be the same size as the final masks on the cutting area. I am in the process of masking up the ICM windscreens, and the fit is OK so far. I have not yet tried the smaller masks on a kit. I have a pair of 48th examples in the stash, and will update the file if necessary when I've built them. If you try the smaller-scale masks, please PM me with any feedback, particularly if the sizes are significantly incorrect. Thank you. Submitter MikeC Submitted 10/23/2022 Category Canopy Masks

  20. Hey Tim, not sure if you still need help. I have. Cameo 3, I, like Dave use a cutting mat, I feel you have a bit more control over the amount of material you use and you can arrange your cuts on any part of the mat. For example, if you want to print on a small 1 inch square, you can direct the cut area to that part, thus being able to use scraps of the 810 vinyl that you may have left from other cuts. I]similarly, I used the standard setting for 650 vinyl and it worked well even for some rather small masks,.
  21. So, here is my messed up experience with the Silhouette and fonts…. I read this feed and noticed that I too was having issues with the software recognizing fonts. Well, long story short: I noticed that MS Word recognized the font and after rebooting the computer viola the Silhoutte also has the font listed. I hope this works for you. Just for the sake of completeness, I found US Navy stencil font for some 1942/easy 1943 number boards. The Silhouette and the 810 vinyl self adhesive stencil worked wonderfully.
  22. Hi Brian, good to see other modelling genres represented.
  23. Morning Brian, and welcome. It’s a bit quiet at the moment but I there’s plenty here for you to digest and apply to your models. Any questions……please ask. Max
  24. Welcome aboard, Brian! I think you could well be our first RC guy, which will definitely be a fresh perspective for us. Kev
  25. Hi folks I've just joined the site, hoping to make more use of my Silhouette Cameo vinyl cutter for making paint masks for my RC model aeroplanes. So far I've only used the machine for cutting vinyl stick-on markings, but want to progress to paint masks for airbrushing. Looking forward to taking part in the site and seeing what everyone is up to. Best wishes Brian
  26. Welcome aboard from someone who used to live just down the coast in Hampshire. As for supplies, I find Graphtec Craft Store give excellent service: I bought my Silhouette 3 from them, and have put in another order for a lo-tack cutting mat and other stuff since.
