  4. Open canopies usually look great on most types, but something has been bugging me on this one but wasn't sure how to fix it. Its those giant 4 inch blocks of plastic representing the hinges. On this video from Kermit Weeks it can be seen how they should look. I'm going to cut off the blocks and replace the cockpit ledge with some plasticard and rod representations. Ive cut a strip of 0.125mm card 1.5mm x 10mm and scribed line down the middle. Next I glued 2 pieces of 0.3mm rod 1mm long for the hinges. This was fiddly to say the least and took a while. Managed to make two of them and painted them interior green with aluminium on the hinges. Once I had test fitted them I cut the old blocks off and filed the edge of the door flush. Think they now look much better. Ive also done the same with the Queen. Stay safe and keep up the social distancing. CT
  5. I used ALC106 white aluminium but I think it works on any of the low shine Alclads. Give it a try and see what works. Also it is very good for varying the shades using tiny trace amounts of black, white, Grey or colour for different panels on NMF aircraft. CT
  6. Very nice. Good glossy finish.
  7. Yes Alclad 2 can be tinted with Humbrol enamel. I haven't tried other paints but that doesn't mean others wont work. This only works with the low shine Alclads The high shine Alclad just turns in an unusable mess in the mixing cup instantly.
  8. All the best projects are not finished on time. A new ship might still be being completed when it enters service or released from a re fit.
  9. Removed the mirror this morning, (I had used gator glue) Respray and glued back on All happy its corrected, I just need to do the landing light on the Dooley bird next and also wonder if I should fit aerial wires and if so what arrangement, there were many! Difficult to see as they dont show very well on 1940s photos. CT
  10. Great. But I cant see it on the GB calendar.
  11. Thanks for the comments during the build. Actually on reflection I may have made and error there, The Hunters mirror is white and I had in my mind I had also seen a pic of the Queen mirror being white, I'm mistaken, I've just looked at this pic and my best guess is now olive drab. Will have to change mine now. Regards CT
