  1. I've used their 1/48 sets on some NMF P-47's and they worked very well especially if the instructions are followed closely. One user provided commodity is essential: patience - if you ain't got it you won't be happy with the result. HTH D.B.

    Loosing that “Loving feeling”.

    My other hobby was shooting in Conventional Highpower Service Rifle competitions. Loved it - so different from work. Cheers, D.B.

    Gunze thinner vs leveling thinner

    I bought 400ml of standard thinner by mistake and it dries a bit too quickly for my taste. So, I added a bunch of Mr. Retarder and all is good. Try saying Mr. Retarder outside the modeling community and stand by for adverse reactions!
