  1. I've recently acquired a camouflage paint mask set for the 1/48 Tamiya Meteor F.1 from LF Models. It will be my first experience with painting masks. I have used self-adhesive canopy masks from Chris Loney of EZ Masks before with good results. One tip that Chris suggests is to wet the canopy (or the individual vinyl piece) in some soapy water. That allows one to arrange the mask into position. My question is will the same technique work with these LF painting masks as well? Like the EZ Masks, they are self-adhesive and I'm wondering how much "wiggle room" one might have when applying these to the painted surface. I'm hesitant to dip one of the LF pieces into soapy water without knowing if that will botch it up or allow for easier placement. I could sure use some advice before proceeding further. Thanks so much for any help! Cheers, Gary. 🍺
  2. Tim "thePlasticSurgeon" suggested this kit as a good start when I visited the Jet Age Museum a while ago: An excerpt from the squadron’s records of the 4th August 1944 states “F/O D “Dixie” Dean took off from Manston at 1545 to patrol inland area under Kingsley II (Biggin Hill) Control. At 1616 hours a Diver was sighted at 1000 ft near Tonbridge on course of 330°, at speed of 365 IAS. Dean dived down from 4500 ft at speed of 450 mph, and attacked from dead astern; his 4 x 20mm cannons failed to fire owing to a technical trouble now being investigated, so flying level alongside the bomb, Dean manoeuvred his wing tip a few inches under the wing of the flying bomb and by pulling upwards sharply he sent the bomb diving to earth four miles South of Tunbridge." From the IWM website wing tip from Gloster Meteor aircraft serial number EE 216. © IWM (EPH 4609)IWM Non Commercial Licence Gloster Meteor Is of No 616 Squadron at Manston, 4 January 1945. The Allies' first operational turbo-jet aircraft, the Meteor entered service with No 616 in July 1944, being employed against the V-1s. Despite its revolutionary power-plant (two 1,700lb-thrust Rolls-Royce Welland engines), the Meteor I's top speed of 410mph was below that of the Tempest or Spitfire XIV.
