    Seems straight forward enough.  How do you not loosen up other nearby completed solder joints while working on the next join?

    I use a heat sink on previously soldered areas. A wet piece of kitchen towel should work. Wrapp around the previously soldered area.

    I bought a Weller Soldering Station, setting the temperature at around 300 degrees Celsius, depending on the task to solder. I also use soldering flux and fine or medium size solder.

    Can you elaborate on this?  Did MBK make additional clear sprues? Or did they get them from border. 



    Paul, those are from Border, as far as I know. I told MBK about the discussion on scratched or broken clear parts here on LSP and elsewhere, so possibly they got some replacements from Border. But this is just me guessing.

    As far as I heard Border has, or will not do, better clear parts. So, I just had some luck and enjoyed great customer service getting much better parts from MBK, where I bought my kit from.

    Anyone have an electronic copy of the latest instructions? The set on Scalemates is pretty much unusable due to low resolution. 

    Just as an explanation, me thinks there might be a restriction on file size to be uploaded to ScaleMates. Doesn’t make things better. Also, whenever I uploaded a PDF file, SM software seems to do something, making the file even worse.


    Also, the assembly manual is also rather on the lower end of what is possible. Far away from anything WNW did… I for myself hope to make it more clear watching the YouTube vids of Nigel’s Modelling Builds.


    Drop me a PM with your Email address, and I will do Scans of the manual. This takes some time, though.

  4. Vincent, after reading the caption of this picture I got curious. What publication is this picture from? I grew up nearby Stuttgart-Echterdingen, where Stuttgart airport is today. Maybe there is a chance to get more information on the place of his "landing", or what has happened?

    Sorry for being off-topic here!

    Hi John.

    The lever from instrument panel isnt straight.





    Always interesting to see one of my pictures pop-up on the Net. This one is from a series I did back then in 2002 in Duxford. I have some more in the walk around section over on SPAModeler, John. But, as one has to be logged in to see those additional pics, it would not hurt to add some more here.
