  1. Thanks mark also got some plastic rod. nice idea Love to here from you on the more sophisticated solution Mark. Or you hiding something for me Laurie Thanks for replying much appreciated.
  2. Have two sponsons (1/48) in resin which has to attach to a coupling to the airframe on a Seaking. As all weight of models going on these wanted to ensure best positive attachment. Having just washed 50 models ensuring I do not have as many "crashes" in future. Great ideas received with pleasure. http://
  3. Oh tut tut going to report that man to Root Admin Thanks Ray great explanation. Thanks for your time. I use beading line. Crysta Line. get in about 6 sizes. Not had a problem until recently. Just think the Rocket has gone off. Got some Bob Smiths, thanks Ade, coming. Got some Locktite coming thanks Ray. Also not helping doing a depp clean of model(& bedroom) room. So when cleaning models come across a number of old models where the rigging has lost some of it's spring. The do not seem to want to be re connected . So new line when my new C/A arrives. Thanks all including Root Admin. Laurie
  4. Thanks Ray. Very informative. Been using a thicker one for rigging. Must experiment. My problem is with the end of a mast trying to stick a plastic line to the top of the mast. I use a locktite primer. Used to use Cyberbond primer pen. But they only sell them in 50s. Pity superb. Cyberbond produce for the space industry Laurie
  5. Thanks Ade. Perhaps the Roket that I have is out of date & not working well. Also thought it strange that Amazon used to have it splashed about but not one mention. Just wondered why. Plus Ebay only have one advert seems strange. Thanks for your input will look up Bob Smith looks good. Laurie
  6. Being using Rocket. 20sec 10sec & 5 sec types. Any used these changed to others & found better. Locktite seem to do a number of types. Any recommendations of other type welcomed. I use Locktite primer. Also advice on accelerator not aerosol the pressurized little bottle you press the top button to release accelerator liquid.. Also have trouble with rigging what glues have you found success with. Laurie
  7. Thanks to TT John & Alex. Very nice of you to comment much appreciated.
  8. Any tips appreciated. Got 4 8foot diormamas with about 50 models. Builder has been chucking up flats not 40 feet away. Rather than keep his own dust he has been sharing it. Very thickly over 2 years. So I now am going to clean. Most are 1/48. Got a small vac which also can accommodate wetness. Tried a small area. Top dust comes of but the remainder needs water or liquid to release it. It is not sticky but is still a little squidgy. Any great ideas greatly awarded with a big thank you. Laurie

  12. Building a SeaKing with FlightPath resin sponsons to convert to RAF. The sponsons are connected to a kit connecting effort which fits on the fuselage.. Thought of C/A but danger of cracking.
