  1. Would look nice next to a Saladin? Loverly model great finish
  2. The only thing i can critique is the lack of harness on the horses. Pulling with just the straps would cut and chaff. The rest however absolutly supurb
  3. My dear Martian I have a question for a modeller with vast experience I'm sorry that this is probably not the right place but here goes anyway. Can you tell me how long kleer usually takes to dry ? 

    Thank you many tentacled one


    1. Martian


      It is touch dry within about fifteen to twenty minutes but I never touch what I have used it on, usually transparencies, for a good twenty four hours. I can then be 100% sure that it is fully cured. It is almost certainly cured well before that, about an hour at a guess, as it is originally designed as a floor polish but I don't believe in taking any unnecessary chances with my builds.


      Hope that helps

      Thank you very much it helps a lot

  4. Cracking build. Hairy stick finish is fabulous. Congratulations all round great result. All the best Steve.
  5. Heather wrestling with a loco? Don't believe it for a moment All your modeling work is wonderful All the best p.s. its not a gateneal kit is it ? lol
  6. Stunning build. Great faded paintwork. Love it, the only thing I noticed was the lack of handles on the ammunition drums ? Might just be me old eyes tho,only have a phone and limited magnification. Still a great job Stay safe Regards steve
  7. You will need flux to tin the tip of the iron. Liquid type is fine, beware of bakers fluid it is very corrosive and will eat into the tips core. Clean, flux and apply solder but be as quick as you can. Keep a damp piece of sponge handy to wipe the tip on this will help keep it clean. The new solder without lead can be a bit of a s#d. I still use the old stuff ( only got a klio or so left) Hope this helps. Heather of this parish might also be able to help Regards Steve
  8. Raised rivers Marklo? Mine only had raised rivets!! You obviously had a special release lol
  9. Just wondering if any modeling is liable to break out? Mind you the drivel is entertaining though most of it is beyond my IQ level lol
  10. Truly remarkable camo. I'm not sure if you should get an honour or be psyco analysed! Great work and well beyond and my talents. Can't wait to see the finished aircraft
  11. I'm sorry to say that the blue plaque people don't seem to do all the research they should. Unlike model kit producers who go to the nnnth degree........ha ha
  12. Great beaufighter heather. Love the finish. Can't wait for the next one!! And thanks for the links
