as you have seen i had this 109 in a late G model now i want it as a Early Spec 109 so everything Late G has to be changed to a Early G part ,, as below the tail wheel has to be extended and i need to scratch build a new support DSC00390_zps4c41a347.jpg

Here i have changed the Late G tail half and rudder to Early G ones

These upper wing halves have to be painted and weathered

Hi Alex, one thing I would do before going on much further

would be stripping off the old paint with Mr Muscle oven cleaner.

That way you'll have it back to the bare plastic.

Regards

Dan

Alex

You got to go with what you gat and keep plodding away !!!!!!!!! I see you still have blobs of paint an things like the tail and wing surfaces !!!!!!!! If you can stump up the cost of Mr Muscle oven cleaner, gather all the parts that still need paint removed !!!!! Place them in a polly bag with the spray covering all the parts and let it sit overnight !!!!!

Take the bits out and rub the debris off with a toothbrush under water !!!!!!!! If it is bits with your engine already in place just make sure the Mr Muscle doe not get to the engine !!!!! And wipe off the surface with damp kitchen roll !!!!!!! That should give you a better chance to fill your joint lines to prepare and repaint to a better surface !!!!!!!!

I know what like it is getting started when no model shops or funds hold back on the stuff you want !!!!!

All the best

Nige
