Hi Russ!
Welcome. I am glad to see you here. This is my favorite modeling forum. I have not been very active here lately but I am always lurking around. :)

Thanks Luis,
Thanks again for the heads up on the printer. Here's a 1/144 scale civilian S-61N I printed. (The canopy is missing because it is out soaking up the sun.

Welcome from me too!
The level of detail you are achieving is amazing. It looks like an ideal setup for 1/144 given the small sizes and the necessary production time involved. Perhaps one area where something like this could be very cost effective is in the making of upgrade or correction sets. It would be great to see engines, wheels or cockpit sets one day.

And to that I'd add conversion kits. RetrokiT has been doing an excellent job in these areas (upgrades, corrections, detail sets and conversions) in resin for quite some time, but there's still ample room for a second (and third, and fourth ...) player, whether it be resin or 3D-printing.
