Wim van der Luijt Nice work on the Pilots, I'll steal that when i do mine

Ben M So I painted this with vallejo gloss black, followed by vallejo aluminum. I then used some tamiya panel line marker, had never used it before. I let it dry and tried to wipe off the excess later with some enamel thinner. Well, disaster struck, and it removed the paint. I had to strip the model and start over :(

Did not expect enamel thinner to remove acrylic. Friend suggested spraying with clear laquer befor applying panel line thinner. Would Future work as well? I ask because I have future in my garage, and do not have clear laquer spray paint.

Ben M Added some rigging to the tailfeathers on this one last night. First time ever! I used ez-line, one observation is it's not round, actually slightly flat, so I should make more of an effort to ensure it does not twist when installed. Pretty neat stuff. I'm improving my skills with ultra thin super glue as well. I do still have a bit of trouble trying to get the right amount in the right place. It seems a toothpick is not ideal for this.

Ben M Found this kit from 1954 in an antique store in Golden, Colorado. Looks like all the parts are there! It's molded in a nice mint green, panel lines are lightly scribed.
15. August at 15:24:32
Alex K I love old kits - and antique shop finds! :)

Derek Huggett Did they box them in sealed plastic bags back in the 50's?
23. August at 15:38:47
Tom ... looking forward to the build. A fire engine from 1966 is my oldest kit.
23. August at 16:04:53
Ben M One thing I've always struggled with, and maybe someone on scalemates can help me - how do I mask the hubs, whitewalls, etc. on tires? Any tips or articles?

Ben M I thought I'd do a nice simple build while waiting for paint & glue to dry on my Ryan STM-S2. When I opened this one up I discovered it had a full interior and photoetched parts - maybe not so simple after all. But it's not a huge model, so what the heck. So I find myself building miniature ammo cans this morning with photo etch handles!
27. May at 16:57:02
Ben M I'm 1 for 3 on PE parts - the first two handles I tried to put on ammo cans vanished... and I tipped over my bottle of thin CA. But still, it's fun for some reason I can't really explain.
27. May at 19:39:08
Ben M This model is a great joke. PE, full interior, needlessly complex and totally imaginary but presented as real, even with fake blueprints. It even has a little propeller on the back, it purports to be amphibious. I just updated the decal list on the kit with the three imaginary units they provide decals for.

Ben M I have a rebox of this kit that isn't in the database. I need to learn how to add it to the database. Also I want to learn how to do rigging and how to do a wash to enhance panel lines as part of this project.

Ben M Dear mates, if anyone has a small 1:48 or large 1:72 aircooled engine cylinder in the spare parts bin, I could use it to go inside the cowling. Also I would swap one of the 1:48 pilot figures for a different one so I don't have two identical twins in my trainer.
3. December 2018 at 14:42:57
Ben M Nope... I cut open the nose to open up the air intakes so now I need something to put in there. I bet I can scratch something out of my junk drawer, maybe alternating sized washers on a small bolt.
3. December 2018 at 17:15:34
Ben M I've moved in enough in my new place to where I can have some fun. The two identical pilots were going to look kind of weird, so I tried a resin pilot, but the resin pilot has a comparatively huge head which made the original pilot look microcephalic. So I decapitated one of the original pilots and rotated and tilted his head a bit.

18. April at 16:25:09
Ben M Yes! Exactly. There are some really, really large rockets elsewhere in the garage. I just moved and I'm trying to get organized.
18. April at 20:15:14
Nathan Dempsey I've got a few of them hanging around too. Awaiting the little one to get big enough to enjoy launching them.

Choppa Nutta Cool subject, I've just been watching season one of this show and I have to say it hasn't aged too badly at all :)
Although some episodes are a bit silly and it doesn't seem to matter how many people die on Alpha One there is always over 300 people there haha :D
still though, all good fun.
I shall enjoy following this :)
30. September 2018 at 11:26:09
Ben M Yes the show is pretty funny. My wife and I watched a couple episodes and laughed the whole time. I loved it when I was a kid, and I had built this model and the one of the hawk when I was a kid. I also built some alien with a car that I think was from the show.
30. September 2018 at 17:02:21
Ben M The landing gear continues to challenge me but I have one leg done maybe. Kind of wish now I would have made them spring loaded, wouldn't have been much harder. The foot pad is a ground down plastic part from the kit, the rest is brass parts and photoetch.
1. November 2018 at 17:30:24
Ben M Not sure how I will mask this for painting. The bottom of the pod should remain black, the rest silver. Liquid masking compound maybe?
1. November 2018 at 17:32:13
Torsten Wendt I think liquid is the best choice
1. November 2018 at 18:11:49
Ben M Unfortunately the liquid mask pulled the Vallejo black primer off the brass ... I'm repainting everything with a brush.
18. November 2018 at 00:06:55
Ben M Now the tamiya tape pulled the paint off the photo etch. There sure is a learning curve here... Any advice on how to keep this from happening? I used tamiya grey primer as my base coat.

Ben M I spent 3 hours masking and burnishing down the tape with a toothpick, and the results are not so great. I even gave it a shot of white paint before I did the black to try to seal up any leaks. The white vinyl tamiya tape didn't work well. The masking tape worked somewhat better but not great.

Torsten Wendt Sounds a little bit frustrating :(
3. December 2018 at 06:10:09
Ben M Future floor wax didn't go so well. Think maybe i used the wrong needle with the nozzle on my airbrush. The future beaded up and I had to flood it to get it to cover. Hopefully it will look better after I dullcote it,

Now decal decal decal decal.
19. December 2018 at 04:12:57
Ben M All done! I'm pretty happy with the result, despite a few issues. This was the first time I'd used photoetch and the first time I'd used future. I also hadn't done decals since I was a kid. Very fun and relaxing, also made me watch the silly show I loved as a kid.
