  1. Early Tu-104 did not have tail strobes at all
  2. Super cool, I want to do the same one day
  3. Enamel. Dilute with white spirit.
  4. IPA will do (it dissolves Klear and neutral to styrene), acetone is aggressive to styrene so it is a "no" . Depending on how much of Mr. Surfacer have you dropped and what it was diluted with it may have eaten through the coat of Klear, even in this case the canopy is still salvageable but it would require some fine sanding and polishing, in this case Tamiya Compound does wonders.
  5. One of the prominent features that are missing in the kit are rudder and elevator weight balances SWMBO just reminded me that we are going to theatre tonight ... This means that the chances to complete it on time are very slim. I don't want to rush, black gloss is not an easy finish
  6. Not really, such position was quite usual for tail-draggers of the epoch Resin transparencies are a bit turbid to my taste, I would prefer a vacform. Usual remedies - Tamiya polishing compounds and Kleer bath to the rescue
  7. Resin has much higher dimensional stability than styrene. The fit is perfect
  8. Resin kits of high quality such as SBS, Small Stuff, Dekno or Prop&Jet are ideal for Blitz! The day was too beautiful for glue sniffing. Still, I managed to make some progress. The biggest problem is that the whole plane is black, including interior. Black is a difficult colour, too blind if not articulated so I tried to do some shading and drybrushing
  9. I always liked the Comet. SBS kit is a bunch of resin, etched and metal cast parts of highest quality, will be fun to build. It will be Black/Gold "Black Magic", of course
  10. The boxes deliberately follow Plasticart's design
  11. Added two inserts to increase wingspan to match the scale Panel lines are drawn according to photos. Moved windows but some proportions are off and cannot be fixed without major surgery Strips of transparent plastic, sanded smooth and polished Copied engines, props and cowlings from S.23
  12. Pearl shells and hardware, Remo skins, why the cymbals are anonymous? Any Ziljian, Sabian or Meinl decals around?
