Thread: filling shallow mold marks
07/12/2017 16:21:42

Hi Joe,

I am a big fan of Tip-pex as a filling medium for small areas & joins. I have used it several times with pleasing results.

BMD-1P pre-primer (3)

Stage 4 - Correcting the fit  (4).JPG

The only thing I would say is that like any other medium you've not worked with before, it can take a couple of attempts to get comfortable using it.

My main advice would be exactly the same as paint, a couple of thin coats rather than one big thick one.

I've heard of the superglue /talc combination giving good results as well but not used it myself yet.

Hope that helps.

Bob,

One of my favourites too and it's looking great so far. I recently acquired the Eduard Profi-pack A-5

Wing roots have often been my achilles heel too so a quick and easy fix which I picked up from our good old friend the Timster, is to use a cocktail stick to run in some PVA glue or Mikro Kristal Klear into the join and then wipe away any excess with a moistened cotton wool bud.

Keep fighting the good fight with it. Looking forward to more.

Good evening chaps,

A work colleague is actually leaving the Army so discussions about a leaving gift led to me offering up a model relevant to what he's been looking at...

This one was selected from the collection and it will be presented to him next week. Hope you like how it's presented.

Dave,

I look away and you've got her together. That's looking very clean and smart so far.thumbs up

A decent Buccaneer would be great to see. I'm surprised Trumpeter haven't had a pop at it based on their line of Gannets and Lightnings from the same era.

Keep up the good work.

trump lav-r stg 6 (3).jpgGood evening chaps,

Alistair, yes back on this again but the nurses keep removing my scalpels and cutters saying it is too dangerous to leave me with sharp thingscrook! I will admit that the suspension bits are almost becoming second nature now. Thanks for the support.thumbs up

Ahh Simon, Good show! Is it a Trumpeter one? Heard they are great little kits.

Hi Jim and thanks. Yes they are becoming more straight forward with each one I do in some ways, Hence getting the running gear sorted so quickly. In other areas though they bring new challenges. The representation of the tie downs on this one is not great. I'll have to replace them with wire.disgust

Sjors, Cheers for thatteeth 2

Onwards then...
