Hi. This might seem a dumb question for many, but I've seen photo's of Scimitars' and Buccaneers ready for take off on aircraft carriers tail sitting, I just wondered how they did it. (sarcastic comments accepted but don't be too boring, thanx).
How do people cut small tube without crimping it? I've bought some 1mm x 0.25mm aluminium tube to use as replacement gun barrels etc, but it is too small to be gripped by my K&S tube cutter which goes down to 1/16" leaving me at a little bit of a loss...
I have an old 1/32 scale Revell Mirage which was pretty decent in its day but is now a faded old glory I was thinking of buying another and doing it up with AM parts - possibly something from Isracast - but they are hard to find and when you do they are a tad expensive for what nowadays would be a very basic model. I got to thinking about taking the old one apart, stripping the paint off (old Humbrol enamels) opening her up for a new cockpit etc. I have seen lots of old models "getting the treatment" but wondered if there were any good methods for removing paint, loosening old tube glue etc and any pitfalls to watch out for? Any advice welcome as always John
