    LEM/Ruporator 32018: Bell P-59 "Airacomet"

    Nice review, thanks ! One small niggle with the kit, the 59 had centrifugal engines, like the Meteor, not axial flow so you don't see a fan when you look down its throat like you do on an axial flow engine.

    Paul Fisher Fire Relief - GoFundMe

    A local body shop owner frustrated by his dealings with the three major insurance companies always finishes his commercials with "Remember... they are not your good neighbor, you are not in good hands and they are not on your side" !

    Very nice, looks like an 'A' wing from Star Wars !
  4. Thanks ! Am enjoying watching your progress on this, keep up the good work !
  5. Just curious, does the interior lip of the cowling on the real McCoy extend back that far ? It looks like it would be hard for cooling air to reach the upper part of the cylinders if so.
  6. I have not had any of them come loose yet and some are several years old dating back to when the self adhesive sets were first released. That said I usually put a drop of Future into the instrument openings to provide a lens and this often times seeps between the layers so that may be supplementing Eduard's adhesive. I also have found that flat coating the upper layer helps reducing the grainy appearance. While I like not needed to paint them, of late I've become dissatisfied with the one dimensional appearance of the Eduard sets for 1/32 and have been using supplied decals or Airscale's over the instruments or using the Yuhu panels instead. I still use Eduard's for the smaller scale stuff.

    Ach! No panel lines...

    They will probably preshade it before painting

    Lovely, in my younger days I would be all of this but now I just see a lot of work going into places it won't be seen. Just give me the stuff that shows and I would be happy !

    A little Lancaster Inspiration

    Nice, interesting with the artificial light it almost looks like a model !
  11. Evening looking at photographs I can never achieve the variety of mottle shapes that you have achieved, I think it looks excellent just as it is !

    Weathering your Heinkel

    I agree they tend to be way over done but there are panel lines visible in spite of the very dark colors.
  13. The one time I've used Alclad's dull aluminum was as an undercoat for chipping purposes. I sprayed it over gray Mr. Surfacer and was surprised to see how hard it was to see where I had sprayed. Of all the Alclad paints I think their dull aluminum has the least amount of metal sheen to it. I have not tried it over any other primers so can speak to how that affects the final look.

    super glue tip clogging

    The key is to clear the nozzle before recapping otherwise capillary action will cause it to creep back up to the top and sometimes into the cap gluing it on, Mark's tip above usually works, I also give the bottle a sharp rap on the table top to force the glue back down into the bottle before recapping.
