  1. The issue I had with the Gunze 1500 might have been due to me being in a rush. Usually I heat up the cans in a bag in hot water and I shake the can for a couple of minutes before using. This time I failed to do both. Sometimes when your in a rush you just dont think! I'm going to do some test sprays with my rattle cans and do a comparison to make some notes. If they dont give me the results I'm needing I'll also do some test sprays with my various airbrush primers.
  2. Hey everyone. Doing some scratch building and was wondering what your experiences are when it comes to rattle can primers? I know you will never get as smooth a finish from a rattle can as you will an airbrush, but for those times when your in a hurry, which rattle can primer do you find to be the smoothest? So far my Tamiya fine surface primer is giving me a nicer finish as compared to my Gunze 1500 rattle can, but did I just have a bad can of Gunze? Curious your thoughts on this.
  3. Fantastic work! Thanks for sharing it. C.
  4. Fantastic legs!c Looking forward to ordering a number of sets.
  5. Amazing product. I wish you great success!
  6. Hi Peter. Sorry to drag up a thread from so far back, but I was wondering about the above test prints on acetate. Can you tell me what printer the tests were printed with? Just wondering if that was done by your home printer or by a shop. Thanks, Chuck.
  7. Those legs look fantastic! Can’t wait until we see them on the market. Any idea when that might be?
  8. Can’t seem to find a hobby world in Ab. Any other ideas?
  9. I thought I read that MRP now has a Canadian distributor but for the life of me I can’t seem to find it. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks.
  10. Very cool! I for one was bummed when the original model looked like it wasn’t going to be released. I’ll by ordering one when they become available for sure. Chuck.
  11. Thanks for the input guys. I think I’ll do some test runs and get back to you with the results. Please stand by.
  12. I was thinking of using baking soda with the CA. Any thoughts on this? Thanks again.
  13. Hi there everyone. I'm wanting to sand some balsa and overlay it with either resin or cyano to give me a hard surface to scribe and rivet into after sanding smooth. Has anyone out there done this and which material would you choose to coat the raw balsa, resin or cyano glue? Thanks in advance and happy new year, Chuck.
  14. Forgive me if you stated this somewhere already, but would you mind sharing what thickness of card you used to cut into strips early on in the build? I can’t seem to find that info. Great looking scratchbuild and I can’t wait for more updates, C.
  15. I'm wondering if anyone has tried to drill out the center core of a plastic landing gear kit legs? I want to do this so I can stiffen the stock gear and simulate the chrome shock portion by using a polished stainless steel rod to replace what I drill out. As I think about how to do this, the possible problems that come to mind are: -how to do ensure the drill is perfectly centred to the core of the gear leg? -how to keep the drill centered as it makes it way down into the leg when you drill? -how to keep the plastic leg from twisting apart as it gets drilled out? Has anyone had success doing this? If you have, can you a share your technique or any other pointers we can all learn from? Thanks in advance, Chuck.
  16. Wow! Very nice pit. Would you mind sharing your paint techniques?
  17. I don’t remember what they were charging before. Does anyone have a before and after sales price example?
  18. Not sure how I missed the data placards on Archers website before, but I found them in the aircraft section for those who are interested.
  19. Beautiful work as always Wolf. I noticed that you used an Archer fine data stencil in the cockpit. I've searched their catalogue and can't seem to find that anywhere. Can you point us in the right direction? Thanks, Chuck.
