  1. Hi, I bought it from UMM-USA Here is the description UMS11 Adjustable ANGLE Gluing Jig [UMS 11] $28.95 $22.99 Adjustable Angle Gluing Jig: Designed to facilitate difficult gluing challenges, this tool provides a stable platform to keep separate pieces at a specified angle while the glue dries.

  10. Made some more progress over the last week or so As there is going to be lots of black and white in various combinations on the three models a quick dry run with the Albino lightning, and hey presto part of it is now the Zebra Lightning. Also played around with laying down coats of Winsor & Newton varnishes. Tried the Matt, gloss and the Satin. So far all is good with them, particularly impressed with the matt To help with a more accurate and consistent set up with spraying pressures i have cobbled together this set up. The gauge is accurate to 0.5PSI. I instal
