Kit instructions site

Postby Peter_D » Tue Dec 20, 2011 8:12

I would like to invite you on my new site:

http://galaxykits.com/instructions

This is site with all kind of plastic kit instructions.

The main purpose was to create place where you can find lost instructions or you can check what's the difficulty of some kit You are plan tu buy.

Maybe it's not strict an 1:144 site, but there's a lot of kits in this scale from my collection that I scan specifically for this site.

Hope you enjoy :)

That's a pretty good start on the 144 stuff. Though not a big problem for me, I must admit I have one that needs the assembly plan (and you don't seem to have it, yet). Hazards of Ebay. I like that you can sort by scale and results group by maker. Puts you one up on the other guy. Our scale can use the support. Thanks for posting the link.

Thanks Peter, for posting that link and a very unique and needed site.

Welcome also to KG144, in case I forgot to do that! :D

Seeing that collection of pages from instructions almost makes me wonder why the various kit manufacturers do not put up something similar on their sites. Its not Web Design intensive to do it and when you think about it, doing this could very well get a few mildly interested modelmakers off of the fence and buying/building, especially if and when they see a particular feature or set of them in some of these better kits. It might go like this: I've built Mig - 21's in the past but this one has a full-out cockpit and a nose intake that is molded so it goes together with no guesswork as to where the cone sits? Oh yeah, I'm in, order one up for me.

Thanks for taking interest, gentlemen. Actually it's the Revell Chinook, US Army version. I can get a kit number but I need to dig it out. Though it would help assure I have the pieces figured out, it's the decal bits that have me scratching my head. The instruction sheet hasn't hit the list yet on Revell's site (which you could teach them a couple things, Peter, about getting organized- it's a dump).

I don't know that it would help, but I can search for this kit and scan instructions for you.

Appreciate the gesture. Yeah, it's pretty much going to have to be the right sheet to get those tiny stickers placed.

Thanks again.

Hi 144hack

I just noticed your request and I have the US Chinook Revell kit. I've just scanned the painting/decal instructions which is what you need. How can I post it or send it to you without degrading the quality? If you want the whole instruction sheet scanned I can arrange it.

Cheers
