    Right on thanks guys. The vacuformed process seam pretty straight forward.
    Tim that Stuka is sick!  OMG the detail of the guns, WOW!!!!
     
    My biggest concern is the Master. I have a set of clear windshield I want to copy.
    Would the hot clear plastic damage the master?
    Do I have to make a wood master of the windshields?

    waltmert reacted to 1to1scale in Kinetic F-86F 40 ext wing, can I covert to Korean War Sabre?   
    I found a great deal on on a Kinetic F-86F 40 NATO extended 6'3' wing, can I covert it to Korean War Sabre? I can't seem to find the short wing Sabre anywhere. I noticed in some sprue shots that showed it comes with tip extensions, if I leave them off, does that make a 30 Model?

    Right on guys, thanks!
    I cleaned them up with alcohol and they are no longer sticky.
    I am going to try the "Future" trick and see what happens.
    There is no easy way to separate the tires from the wheel to put aluminium foil so I am sure the sticky process will start again.
    I decided I am not going to super detail the model as I first thought, I am going to hang it from the ceiling
    just as it is and wheels up!
    Funny that even the pilot started to get sticky! He is going to have to sit on aluminium foil for sure!
     
    Harold thanks a million for the offer to cast the tires/wheels but if I am going to bug you with a resin set, it will have to be another F4U-5N set. I really like that bird.
     
    For now I am going to concentrate my time and efforts on the two 1/24 Harriers I have been working on for............
    yeah, for ever!!!

    Gentlemen,
    I have noticed that a lot of the 1/32 and larger scale models tent to come with rubber tires.
    In fact, I just happen to purchase a large 1/18 F-104 model. Boy is she big and gorgeous!
    But, the rubber tires are all sticky and soft. I guess they are self destroying.
    Is there a process to stop the deterioration of rubber tires?
     
    Thanks,
    Walter
