    Acrylic rod bending

    A heat gun works well if you use something like a pipe of sorts that will form the bend, so you dont have to judge free hand. You heat the rod and bend it around the pipe.

    My 1/24 Trumpeter P-51

    What a disaster this was. I had to strip the paint three times. 1st , my chosen OOB scheme, the Trumpeter Decals disintegrated. Back to the drawing board. Stuffed up the 2nd paint coat and redid it. Now at the decaling stage. I just want this off my bench!!! This is my 1st 1/24 scale in as many years. I will complete the weathering etc today, and then crack on with the 1/24 Mosquito for the GB.

    F-100D Super Sabre 1/32 Trumpeter kit

    Very good NMF, one of the best I have seen.
  11. I learned something new!! The phrase (Judas Goat) was also used in World War II by the 8th Air Force, U.S. Army Air Forces B-17 Flying Fortress and B-24 Liberator crew members. Each bomb group employed a nearly worn-out bomber known as a formation, lead, or assembly ship. These aircraft were brightly painted with group-specific high-contrast patterns in stripes, checkers, or polka dots, enabling easy recognition by their flock of bombers to form up from various airbases over England and fly strategic bombing missions over Europe. After guiding their own combat bombers into the appropriate formation groups the assembly ships would return home—thus their poor condition and lack of camouflage and weapons mattered little.

    For mottled camo I use this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Airwaves-AEMM503-1-32-Luftwaffe-WWII-Fighter-Mottle-Mask-Bf-109-Fw-190-etc/372565925829?epid=28012034312&hash=item56bea8dfc5:g:dtYAAOSwzTFcEqi7
