Frank Spahr Thanks, guys, I hope I can get it all done on time for the Lingen show ...

Łukasz Gliński That's a very interesting project, have you already started with the tanker?
31. October 2016 at 10:33:05
Frank Spahr Thanks, Lukasz! I have the material together and have started grinding off some of the molded-on "railings". Right now I´m painting 1:350 figures and will soon switch to the tanker.

Frank Spahr I´ve completed the model, at least for now. I added very convincing 3D printed boats and Carley floats plus NorthStar figures, followed by the iffy lattice antenna masts and their rigging plus the even iffier three radar aerials atop the island. A generous flat coat hopefully hid most blemishes ...

Derek Huggett You write a great article Frank - Homer (the Greek, not Simpson) would be proud of narration like yours! I hope the project continues well.

Achim Ribbe Well done ..I like this tiny details very much...thats why I have to ask.. HOW DO yOU GLUE THE PE'S?
11. November 2016 at 11:34:38
Frank Spahr Thank you both, Derek and Achim! I use an optivisor to begin with, to see what I do, and Zap-a-Gap CA glue in two viscosities, thin and medium. Sometimes I carefully dip the PE part into the glue, sometimes I use CA applicators (read this as wires of varying diameters in holders) or disposable pipettes. Letting capillary action take place works well, the glue thus runs to where I need it. Sometimes I also use CA accelerator spray.

Achim Ribbe Thx, Frank.. your answer will give me a c(g)lue. Yes and a optivisor...sigh.. we are getting all older.
