Nope. HD Webcam and when I have to leave my desk, I switch to a HD pocket cam.
OH! I sometimes use my digi cam to record 720p SD video if I need a second camera doing stuff away from the desk but I try not to use it since it's not HD otherwise I'd have to do a lot of tweeking to it to make it match up with the other cams in post. Too much time :/

DreamKnight, you had mentioned not being sure if one wing folded was technically correct. I found this video showing a corsair lowering it's wings one at a time.

Oooo nice. thanks for the find. I'm pretty sure can be lowered seperately cause I've seen photos of em but I'm not sure if they were the right model of the F4U.

Hey DK, something I have been meaning to ask you, where do you get those little plastic cups (the ones that look like Nyquil dosers)

OH! In the US, there is a place called Smart and Final here. Sells grocery and restaurant supplies wholesale. I buy a 100 lot package for like $3. You can get caps for them too for like $1.5. They have other sizes too... like same vloume but lower and wider.

Eugene Oregon? You're on the west coast, you guys should have Smart and Finals? If you do, they stock Future too... and just like... surf the isle... there's SO much stuff you can use for the hobby you can buy in bulk. lol

I looked up Smart and Final, they haven't made it this far north, the closest one is in Sacramento (which ironically is where I used to live 4 years ago).

Go to your local $ store, should be able to buy a sleeve of shot glasses for next to nothing. Not quite the same size, but would do the trick. Or look up restaurant supplies in the phone book in your area, they look like the cups that take outs would put salad dressing or similar in.

Yeh suppose to be navy blue or something like that. I don't really pay attention to the colors since I'm going to do weathering to it that'll wear the color. I just need to get it close enough to what I need to.

Oh also, the color darkens when you gloss coat for decals. I don't know why so I don't see the point in trying to get exact colors. When I dust coat it, it'll get lighter again then even more when I weather it to wear down the plane

The build itself has been stalled for awhile because Dreamknight's been tied up with work
