    Hi Johan, If you do find the time to make a few more of this jig, I would very much like to purchase one. Cheers, Chris

    Fokker Dr. I 'Skeletal'

    Great work so far on this project, I'm sure this will be a real head turner when finished. I was surprised to see you use styrene for the fuselage and not brass rod, I know it is much easier to work with but would be concerned about supporting the finished weight without twisting or bending. But that is why I am merely the padawan, not the master.... Looking forward to following along and learning some new ideas.
  5. I'll be using the X-Wing book to gauge what the paid books are like.

    super glue tip clogging

    The wall thickness for the needle is very thin so the heat does not travel very far at all, less than 1/2 it's length. The only downside to this trick is that when you go to purchase your needles you get some funny looks.

    super glue tip clogging

    Go get a hypodermic needle, cut the tip off so that it is no longer sharp. The plastic end on the needle fits nice and tight onto the end of the Zap CA bottle. When the needle gets blocked with glue simply take a lighter and heat the tip, the glue will burn out and leave a nice fresh fine hole to apply the glue with. As an added benefit as the needle blocks it keeps the glue fresh!
  13. +1 for the Shikego Koike prints from HLJ, I have a couple and they look great when professionaly framed. Well worth the money.
