If I post you some 2mm Aluminium rods do you want to do the det cords for my Hawk? No? Oh well worth a try...... Great work, used to see these things daily from Valley and Brawdy growing up. From the days when they were Red and White, the switch to Grey and the final switch to the current Black.

Bob, the seats look great (isn't the Airscale stuff terrific?).  And I love what you've done with the det cord - it's such a prominent feature on the aircraft, in my opinion it was worth it.

I like them, I wish you got more in a pack though. With it being a two seater, I've used quite a few straight away! 

 

Pushing along nicely Breaker ! Love the det-cord and I can imagine it must have been great fun trying to get it all symetrical and conform to the inside curvature of the canopy... As to Your doubt wether it is an improvement or not, I'd say: definately worth the effort ! Would You mind "letting out the secret" regarding how You've attached it to the canopy ? My guess is gloss-varnish...???

 

Regards Rudy.

 

Yeah, Aquagloss was used to glue the wire just wicked into the joint

Flaps are on and in place. I don't really recommend the CMK kit, I'd of rather rebuilt it myself but with the time limit it seemed the best option. It could of done with more mounting points to ensure everything was symmetrical.

See, this is why me and my fat thumbs can not be trusted to tackle the job myself, proof you should do the det chord for me.....

Great work! Those flaps really add something to the model's looks. Definitely worth doing, I say.

Threw some paint down on the undersides, Mr Hobby Barley Grey.

Found some of this sellotape in my junk draw, it's festive silver tape. I've made some mirrors for the canopy, so I've stuck them face down on the tape and trimmed around. Instant mirror finish and no need for glue and it's completely resistant to handling!

Started work on the Tyres.

And some of the other little bits and pieces.

I LIKE the trick with the silver tape! Cockpit mirrors give me fits, that's a brilliant solution!
