Lt.Col. Maxwells BUSTER

Recommended Posts

harolds nose (an absolute must) was now attached to the front. the kit intake has very strange locating tabs at the front that have to be removed, a gap all around has to be filled on the inside. i used tamiya light-curing putty for this, it adheres nicely to plastic and resin. in the past i didnt have good results with this product, but tried it again since i found it in the toolbox. you have to make sure its mixed properly to get it to work, it then hardens very good in a miunte in direct sunlight and thereafter and can be scribed like plastic

Good show, Karl.  The F-86F is a fave.

 

'. . . you have to make sure its mixed properly . . . '

I didn't know their light-curing putty was 2-part.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

thanx mark, its not two part, but the first time i used it, there was some clear fluid at the top of the pack. just mixing this into the pastier substance deeper in didnt cut it, it never hardened. now i only used the paste and it worked properly

Ah, a Korean era F-86, my favorite subject!

If you do come across a pic of 554, please share(i collect Korean era F-86 pics and don't have this one yet)

Also have a Wolfpack F-86 in the stash that is very similar to the Italeri, so following your build with interest.

not much mojo in the last couple of days, but i managed to join the fuselage and wings. i had a hard time mounting the resin nose, because the kit intake has to be shortened a little and gaps filled. i even had to make a half-round sanding stick to be able to smooth everything out
