Great start Gary- looks like you're immersing yourself into "challenging construction" already! Love the narrative too!
6. September, 22:07
Gary Kitchen
Cheers Andy. I'll try and keep the narrative going. I'm loving my little research journey through the Jan Zumbach years. Pity I wasn't ready for the Hurricane build, the work you guys did there was superb. If I can get to even a third of the way to yours and others skills, I'll be happy.

Hi Gary, nice pre-shading! Regarding your question about decals the 3 & 4 looks good. With some washes at the end they will be ok. If you want to take them out (if the paint is not clear coated) will be tough not to damage the paint, even for acrylic paint. If the paint is protected with clear varnish before application, with a brush and water you can do it. cheers

Cheers Micky. I've learnt my trade on this forum and so definitely clear glossed before hand. I'm still debating in my mind what to do. Thanks for the encouraging comment.

Great, with acrylic paint plus clear gloss you can do it, very careful waiting for the decal to separate(the decal will be destroyed of course) . At the end maybe the gloss coat will be gone but the paint should stay.
Anyway IMO the numbers are pretty good, if you cover them with another gloss coat then you can apply a black and brown wash, let it dry for a couple of hours and remove it with a kitchen paper and the result will be fine. Looking forward for the result of this interesting Heller kit of a French Morane! cheers

Hi All. I've spare one of these somehow, if anyone wants it. Postage paid (within reason).

Great start. :)

Hey, that's a great start!, I thought it was "The 'fix" one for a second-similarly detailed, that I've previously built. My Trumpeter 72nd experience is their Tu-128 which went together great, albeit with some sloppy inaccuracies [that others pointed out to me, so I'd have been none the wiser]

Gary Kitchen
Thanks for the encouraging comments guys. @Andy I'll have a look in your albums and take a look at your Wellington for tips @Erik thanks- I see you have a P.11c in your albums which was a Heller kit. I've just finished an Arma Hobby version which was lovely but a bit fiddly for my reintroduction to hobby. I've not detailed the build but have few snaps to put up soon.

Hello mates. I’ve contrived to demolish the nose turret canopy for my Wellington MkIII. Incredibly frustrating but wondered whether anyone out there has a spare nose canopy for a Wellington, Manchester, Short Stirling (all FN-5 I believe), or a Lancaster (FN-5a) not sure how different. Asking mainly in hope as I suspect spares or unused canopies are a rare thing. otherwise I’ll be jumping into the aftermarket which all seem to be vacuform that are wafer thin.

Hi All, I'm really struggling with ultra-small PE cockpit pieces in 1/72 scale. It's not the bending per se, rather the manipulation and combining and positioning.
I think I need a better set of ultra-slim tweezers; any recommendations greatly received.
15. May, 10:45
Scot R
I found tweezers from stamp collecting hobby to have very precise tips. Some are broad yet flat. Others come to a very close tip. Tweezers are like paint brushes. One set just isn't enough to cover every eventuality. You need a bit of variety to get you through certain tough projects.

Also, you could try to experiment with a different CA/superglue. Maybe something that sets more or less quickly could be what you're needing.

There is quite a variety of shapes, sizes and prices if you search here for: tweezer.

I tried using a stickie cut to shape and a toothpick dipped in melted wax. Both work quite well for tiny bits.
25. May, 05:39
Gary Kitchen
Thanks Scot, Eddie, Luc. I've also invested in an angle-poise magnifier and LED light which has also helped.
