    Question about Tamiya cement

    Thanks Collin! I'll order some right now.
  2. I used to use Ambroid Pro Weld, and was always very happy with it, but apparently it's no longer available. I picked up a bottle of Tamiya Extra Thin, but it doesn't seem to have a very strong bond on the test pieces I tried it on, and isn't very solvent-y. What is the best solvent cement available in the US? Thanks!

    You've probably seen this, but here's a 360° cockpit view of her: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10156847319893623&id=192081688622
  4. That's a good-looking airplane, I hope you build it! What scale are you thinking of?

    1/32 385th BG(H) B-17G - Fictitious

    I wonder if the different barrel lengths in the kit are due to how they attach at their appropriate locations? Maybe they all would appear the same length once installed? If that were the case, one would think they'd have specified it in the instructions. Either way, whatever you decide will look great I'm sure!

    In the book "Aerial Armament in WWII: Vol I, Guns, Ammunition and Turrets" it states the gun was 57 inches long with a barrel length of 36 inches. I've seen these same measurements elsewhere as well, but can't remember where right off hand. It's been awhile since I walked around Aluminum Overcast, I missed our local airshow last time around.

    I guess I didn't know there were different barrel lengths on the .50 cal M2. Everything I can remember reading said that the barrel length was 36 inches. I'll be interested to know which lengths were at which gun position.

    Wow, nice job on the white swirlies! I wouldn't have the guts to attempt that.

    Nice touch with the SUU-20 and BDU-33s!
  10. While I've always liked the twin-engine models best, I have to say, you've made me a convert, that is really beautiful!
  11. Sorry Jay that I led you to that wrong chain (I was under the assumption that it was mini bicycle chain too), but I think you're right, it still looks fine.
  12. Wow, there's an awful lot going on in those drawings, isn't there? Good luck, whichever way you choose, I'm sure it'll look great!

    Found these walk-around detail pics. They're of the prototype, but maybe the flaps and gear are the same? http://www.primeportal.net/hangar/howard_mason2/wyvern_tf1/index.php?Page=1
  14. It's Dan. Glad to be of help, can't wait to see what it looks like!
