Cut bottle in half for heat forming.

Nigel, not to make too fine a point on this, but you can cut a bottle in half, heat form each half and add a middle section to "bridge" the gap so to speak. I have not done this, but I think it is...

Thumbs up Top coat of Humbrol looking very good.

Barry, just chiming in on your Lanc; looks great with the Humbrol enamel on there.;) Your nacelles look very scale as well. Your idea of using the GWS rubber spinners for inline motors is very...

Wink EPS not EPP

Michael, I really meant using EPS for silk and acrylic sealer. I agree on EPP- no point as it is memory foam so tape is better. Now silk on EPS- to me- is the cat's meow (pun intended:)). It gives...

Smile Silk and acrylic sealer.

Michael, you need to try some silk (1 square yard is easily enough to cover a 39" wingspan model). It should not cost more than $10 to order some silk from either Thai Silks or Dharma Trading (I have...

Michael, did I mention that this plane would be taking some hits?;) I think you should try spackle and silk. You would be shocked at how resilient that combination is on plain EPS foam. Barry and I...
