    Another gluing question

    The problem is trying to glue the screen on top of the screen frame. In reality the screen is "trapped" between likely a fixed structure on the aircraft and a frame that retains the screen in place or the frame is a part of the assembly that includes the screen. The pattern of fasteners that I see in your pic around the screen should be visible once the screen is in place not glued under the screen. I would make a two piece frame shaped to fit the opening with the frame between the pieces. Then glue the assembly into the opening allowing you to glue the frame and not the screen. Adding fastener detail as needed to the frame assembly. Barry

    1/24th Scale

    That's the way I see it also, WW I 1/18, WW II 1/24. IMO it allows a greater level of detail. Barry

    South East Asia revetments question

    The ones at Ubon RTAFB were 8 sections deep and 6 wide. Cheers, Barry
  8. Jay, Have you considered annealed thin brass or aluminum sheet. It will retain shape and will drill without ripping. Make a form out of a hard wood then layout the pattern, cut , drill it then bend over form. Barry
  9. Eric, You have truly captured the look and feel or did you just shrink an actual aircraft down? Beautiful work!! Barry
