  4. hi all , I use a very fine Armature Wire, and then flatten lengths with Bench Vice that was'nt completed durin' my Apprenticeship ( last Century !) The moveable smooth faced Jaw is free movin' in the guide . I stand it up, place 70mm lengths of this wire on the fixed also smooth Jawed and. drop the moveable about (6) times onto the wire . Bein' Copper with some shiny coatin', the Copper gets work hardened and stiff, so it's very easy to cut with scissors, .........and hope you have cut the right length ! I have predrilled #75 holes before assembly of the Kit and leave stubs of the wire protrudin' out to be removed when it comes around to riggin' the Model . cheery "stay safe 'n' model " mumbas !

  7. hI Doggy , try an Industrial Acylic Thinner such as ACLAC 20, it is available from Auto Repair Supplies Shops. I also use a Product call GUNWASH to clean my Paasche Airbrush , don't muck around with the expensive "Modellin' Size " Products, go for (1) Litre size tins....... that goes for a General Purpose Thinner . Also check to see if the Nozzle is not split ! cheery "Modellin' " mumbas ! Geoff F.T.G. 3156

  11. hi ALL , OUR TIME HAS COME ! Time to indoctorate the "Lost " durin' the World Wide Self Isolation period . I am sure the "Green Box " Builders amongst us (A.F.V ) will lead the way. cheery "Modellin' " mumbas ! Geoff F.T.G.3156
  12. hi ALL , considerin' to trick my B-25D up to a N.E.I.A.F. Mitchell N5 146 at Batchelor Creek 1942/43 but I don't have such Decals. and provin' difficult to source . Does anyone have the DUTCH DECAL #DD72090 or ESCI or FLEO. TALLY HO or AVI PRINT sheets that they are willing to part with for payment of course. btw: the EDUARD Mask Kit CX017 don't suit the AIRFIX Kit ,the Brassin Wheel Set are ok but the Tread coulda been deeper.
