You can do whatever you want on this baby. LOL No one can say it isnt correct. ;)

Personally I think that would be wicked cool in a NMF.

What's NMF stand for?

Yes, that's what I was thinking.

Nice work. I also have this kit in the stash. Agree on the winglets just because! :)

Yes I thought the rounded wings just looked wrong.

Has anyone made sprue goo with normal liquid cement? I don't have any extra thin cement that I can spare but I do have an extra bottle of normal liquid cement. What are the differences in quality?
14. September, 14:56
Skywalker
Can anyone respond to my question?
14. September, 20:36
Roland Gunslinger
First of all: I have no experience with this technique. But my thoughts are:
The extra thin acts as a solvent for the plastic parts. The "normal" one is more like a common glue. It will not work with it or it will only work very slowly.
14. September, 20:44
Skywalker
Well I tested a batch and it seems to work but the drying time is a few hours. Anyone have any experience with this stuff?
15. September, 01:16
Steven Van Dyck
Wouldn't it be more efficient to use household acetone or something you can buy cheaper? The more volatile your thinning agent is, the faster it would cure.
15. September, 05:23
Skywalker
Steven you may be right. After 24 hours the test piece still hasn't cured completely. It also has a bit of shrinkage. Right now I don't see an advantage over using super glue.
15. September, 15:17
Steven Van Dyck
The problem is that the glue has some components that don't evaporate. Good for trying to fill seams but a problem for predictable curing.

Off to a great start!
15. August, 00:41
Skywalker
Thanks JD. Love your PodRacer. I'd love to do one sometime but I've committed myself to 1:72 scale.
15. August, 01:09
JD
Thank you, nice of you to say so! :D

How is he gonna be able to see those Rebel scum with all that tape on the windows?? Just kidding, it's looking great! (Who says all your models need to be in one and only one scale?)
15. August, 23:11
Ben M
Looks great
15. August, 23:34
Skywalker
Thanks guys. I'm fascinated by the sizes and shapes of aircraft. 1:72 helps me to visualize compare the different variations.
16. August, 00:57
Skywalker
May the force, and a couple of other things, be with you.
16. August, 01:11
Skywalker
Finished! I'm pretty pleased with how this came out. The kit was very good quality.
26. August, 18:03
JD
Great job! I like the color modulation from the cockpit out to the wing panels, and it looks like you used oils for the panel lines? Nice.
26. August, 18:09
Skywalker
Thanks JD. Little tricks I learned in art school. Who said that University degree in art was worthless? At least I got a good model out of the deal.
26. August, 18:13
JD
Lol! I got a degree in music. Fat lot of good it does me! :D
