    Putty Test

    Now before I had watched a lot of build videos or asked advice. I ordered some Testors Contour Putty because that was the only thing i knew existed that would not melt plastic. The Kneadatite (AKA Green Stuff) that I use on metal and for sculpting melted plastic on me when I tried it on plastic...

    Does anybody have a good diagram of a generic WWII Fighter?

    I'm using the wrong names for stuff and I am not coming up with the right search term to come up with a diagram that shows me the difference between a Flap and an ailleron or what the name of the ubiquitous skinny little projection sticking out from the leading edge of the wing is.

    Local Hobby Shop Surprise

    My Journeys today brought me into close proximity of the only Hobby shop in town. If nothing else I figured I’d see what they had in 1/72 scale. With the thought that if I was saving shipping I might buy something that was otherwise low on my list. Besides maybe I would luck out. And I sort of...

    Returning to Hobby Tool Questions?

    Hi this is my first post here and I really didn’t see a better place to put it. I haven’t built a plastic model for decades. Most of the plastic modeling I did was back in the 60’s 70’s when I was a kid. Just slapping together kits without painting then putting on the decals. I’ve decided to...
