@Treehugger I didn't need to drill any hole in this kit (just had to cut off two parts and plug the resulting holes with a part), but whenever I need to do so, I tend to use the same procedure you suggested... :)

Project is going slowly but nicely, expect new pics during the weekend.

Soooo... Big problem!
"Wadda mistake to make" as they would say in Allo Allo.

I'm absolutely not used to varnish large surfaces and apparently overdid it "slightly" while coating the submarine with my Vallejo gloss varnish (can't seem to find any Klear/Future here in Belgium).
The result is that I have three or four pools (drops) of cured varnish that have formed on the external part of the top side.
Only one thing to do: sanding followed by polishing those pools before continuing.

Lesson learned.

To all Great War airplane fans:
I recently discovered a new YouTube channel with really well written presentations of early planes (and related material) :

I'm rapidly becoming a fan and I guess he could use a few more views or even subscribers...

Hi everybody!
Any idea where in Belgium one could find some clear/future?
The only one remotely resembling it I could find isn't clear at all: right manufacturer and all, but slightly milky instead of clear...
Thanks in advance for any help!

Question: for CA glue, I mainly use ZAP-A-GAP CA+ Super Glue Med..5oz / 14.1g) (ZAP PT-03, No)
Problem is, I never get to empty the bottle, the stuff hardens more and more as time passes. First it becomes a tad less fluid, then it takes quite a while before it gets into the bottle's nozzle and finally, it becomes a semi-hard goo that's unusable.
Do you have a trick to prevent this from happening?
Thanks in advance!

Store it in the fridge, if not used. This delays the reaction a bit ...
12. September, 09:44
René "Bilbo" Bartholemy
Whow! So simple?! ;)
12. September, 09:54
bughunter
It do not solve the issue, only delays it. The problem is, that once it is open you get air and humidity into the bottle - and humidity triggers the reaction (also if you want to glue something).
12. September, 10:29
Treehugger
I only use small tubes (Tamiya) or small bottles for cyanoacrylate, and I keep them in a sealed glass jar with lots of silica bags in them (to help prevent drying, by removing humidity).

I remember buying two or three medium sized bottles of cyanoacrylate, all went hard, without even having opened a single bottle(!). Those bottles was made of some kind of plastic.
12. September, 10:48
Treehugger
So there is a fridge trick? Interesting, I will try that out! :D
12. September, 10:50
René "Bilbo" Bartholemy
Soooo... In a closed glass jar with silica-gel and then in the fridge. I'll do that!
Thanks guys!
12. September, 11:24

Don't expect to much ... The problem is, when you use it, you have to refill that volume with air :(
12. September, 11:45
René "Bilbo" Bartholemy
Yes, I know, he H2O in the air is (one of) the catalyst(s) for the CA to harden. [That's why I tend to blow on it when gluing parts...]
But I'll try it nonetheless, just to see if I can keep a bottle in a usable state for longer than 6 month. As my den is located just next to the bathroom, the relative humidity in the air is generally quite high, so that's that already. If it still doesn't help, "meh"! :)
12. September, 11:52
Treehugger
I would go for smaller bottles. Maybe not cheaper, but I don't dare buy a large bottle of CA or risk having it all go to waste.
12. September, 12:28
JD
I use precision glue extender tips. They are cheap and self sealing, and so you don't have to open the bottle repeatedly exposing it to air. They have become a necessity for me. :) https://amazon.com/s?k=glue+..2C273&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_3_9

Hi René, great post! I'm just getting into electronics myself, and am planning on making one too, Interesting design!

That's how it begins... 8)
I just got my first breadboard starter set, and have no idea what all those components are for yet, except for the leds and resistors. I've also got fiber optic cable on the way.
Gotta start somewhere!
6. September, 22:43
René "Bilbo" Bartholemy
Soooo... Finished it! There's just one tiny little snag...
It doesn't work at all! ;)
I'll double check all of the wiring and see what I can do.
Just not today!

I made one out of a bug zapper, and the only thing that got zapped was me. It did not generate any static electricity at all, but shocked me several times really good :P Oh well, that's how we learn!

I used the book "Light Car Patrols 1916-19" and I learned that most of the cars the ANZAC "inherited" from the Brits were in bad condition. As the two Ford Model Ts were already build and as I didn't want to dent and cut the plastic, I decided to give them another kind of battered look...
