  1. All looking very good & handsome Alex. All the trimming takes time but certainly pays dividends. I use that technique on cockpit windows. Gives a nice clean edge. Plus any paint which has seeped under the masking is cut & easy to remove. Very tricky masking around those window frames. Think I will do Jersey's own Islander next with the Viking following. Laurie
  2. Thanks Rog. Member on SMF gave me an idea using Blue Tack. Used C'A on a little scaffold worked perfectly more accurate 10% of the time & all in tack compared to the first one. http://
  3. Slow hopefully sure. Some progress. Wings & engines. http://
  4. Looking good Alex. Not sure how many coats of Stynylerez. I put on a mist then full. Start sanding after about 2 hours & not had any problems with curing.. Had same dilemma on the Dakota. White on top silver under. And I had stripping of silver. I use Vallejo Metal Color which is a bit fragile. However, I did find though it stripped in a couple of places it wet 7 dried on the edge of the strip very well. Blowing it back it was invisible. I did a day or so after curing the Metal Color repair apply Vallejo metal color varnish to all the Silver to strengthen which seemed to work

  11. Hi Rog & a great new year. Just spent the last 10 days in hospital, so I hope my new year is a good one. Great not a good fit kit but it certainly tests your filling finishing abilities. Unfortunately did not totally finish my build but most of the difficult stuff is there. I use the full range of of Mr White Putty. Putty, PuttyR. Mr Hobby 500 for final touches. After 20 years found these the best. They stick & do not flake at the adge they sand to a feather. About the same thickness as most plastics so sanding to a very fine adge is perfection. They also cure v
