If this one turns out anything like your F-16 , it will be a beauty. looking forward to some modelling time together.

Thank You Sir, and yes next weekend can't come quick enough. I'll bring the M901 Launching Station & M983 Prime Mover (Tractor). I'll continue working on these after I finish the Rhino.

Michael Hickey
Most of the work to the wing structure is done now, just some tiding up to do. Then I'll cut in the seamless air intakes and then start the cockpit.

As 2020 comes to a close and we will see the "Scalemates Messerschmitt Bf 109 Group Build 2020" finish with it. I sit here and have looked back over at all those incredible Bf 109's and wonder what could the next Group Build topic be. Maybe something armour related or two engine aircraft, I'm sure you guys and gals out there have some ideas so lets here them.😄

What is on the other side of that brick wall if I may ask?

I ask because I think you should really consider venting the air to the outside.

After a year you should imo wipe your walls clean with a DRY microfiber cloth (not/never a moist cloth). I found traces of green paint on my walls, because I had one time sprayed with 40 psi primer paint. Went on well, but even my expensive ventilator, obviously isn't made for 40 psi airbrushing. I now only airbrush with around 20 psi. High psi really clogged up my ventilator filter, badly. Shockingly so.
30. November 2020, 12:53
Michael Hickey
There's a huge open space that goes back nearly a meter and a half, and I always spray around 15 to 20 psi. So should have no problems with over spray.🙂
