  10. Nice Just checking. I,m afraid personal issues will keep me from Phoenix and the show. SOOOO more effort for Battle of Britain. Spitfire needs some decent wing walk decals. in mail. Polish Hurricane and Blenheim are in the bullpen.

  12. Greetings Progress moves on 1/72nd Tamiya Spitfire Don't let the wrinkly decals scare you Moving On
  13. Thanks Gil The oversprayed wing markings are called for on the reference sheet for the 109 from JG51 based in France in August 1940. The reference for this aircraft called for the subdoing of the wing markings with RLM O2. these instructions came from the excellent decal sheet on Battle of Britain from Southern Expo model club in England. They are fantastic decals and great instructions. I posted the 109 profiles earlier. The little cone like insulators were constructed based on a technique explained to me by Barry Numerick. Take a thick piece of Plastic and a small needle, heat the needle and slowly push it through. The needle cools as it goes through the plastica but retains enough heat to form a small cone on the opposite side. Slice off with a straight razor and the hole is already throgh the cone from the needle. I practiced on about 15 to get 2 good ones. Cheers
  14. Greetings 1/72nd Scale ICM 109E-3 is completed. Tamiya 1/72nd spitfir MkI under way. 109 Photos (obviously)
