    Delores O’Riordan RIP

    I usually never comment on the passing of someone from the celebrity world, but she was so much more... when I first heard "Zombie" I fell in love with her voice and her music... It's very sad to know I will never hear that voice again. May she rest in peace

    Weight issues

    well, I use fishing weights. They come in different shapes and sizes, so it's easy to make them fit. Sometimes I use a table vice to shape the lead in a suitable form. For example, if I need to weight down a front end of a 1/72 Huey, I press the lead in a thin strip to place beneath the floor, and it fits nicely. To fix it in place, I use Bison 2k epoxy glue, or sometimes PVA wood glue. Also, if I need the lead to stay in place while the glue sets, I use just a really tiny dab of CA glue before applying the epoxy. Never put more CA, because in contact with lead it develops a chemical reaction which can destroy the model.
  13. Wonderful model, you can be very proud love the Beriev, it is one of my favorite aircraft... still waiting for a reasonable priced Be-40 Mermaid and Be-200 Altair
  14. really fantastic build! just when I had all but decided to bin my half-built MB one and go for Airfix, your build made me reconsider... if I can build mine half as good as yours, it would be an outstanding success
