In fact I grabbed an extra handful of toothpicks from Olive Garden last week, so now I can do that
Tamiya's Insignia White in a rattle can? They began selling this lacquer paint in a glass bottle. It's called Tamiya LP-35 Insignia White. It's also essentially the same as Mr. Color 316, although that is a gloss paint.Yeah the insignia white seams to be just the right hue... Rather annoying that it only comes in spray cans. Then again I've heard that 1 part buff to 4 parts white should do the job.
Hmm... I hadn't noticed. I'll check it out.Tamiya's Insignia White in a rattle can? They began selling this lacquer paint in a glass bottle. It's called Tamiya LP-35 Insignia White. It's also essentially the same as Mr. Color 316, although that is a gloss paint.
Loved reading your build. A great result.Well, After 11 months and 2 days I'm finally calling this one done.
It's not the most fancy one out there in the galaxy, but this is my hunk of junk.
The first model started in over 30 years, and the first one that I've ever tried lights and weathering on.
I've got a looooooong way to go with my weathering skills, just lucky I've got another 13 Falcons in my stash to get it right....
I'm more than happy to take pointers, advice and yes, even a little criticism because it's through these things I learn better ways of doing this.
Good-day. You're doing a great job with the model.
LMAO, Well done brother. Yours looks like its been well loved...
Instfitt, me too. Spent all my remaining 6 yrs at 2AD, half the time in the cleanroom.LMAO, Well done brother. Yours looks like its been well loved...
I like the big one too.
You could see mine was an '87 model
Went on to grow up to be an Instfitt
I was 3AD top shop then Hangar 410 F-111 deeper maintenance, 1 Sqn, then 501WG F-111 deeper maintenance, then out to Boeing for F-111 deeper maintenance.Instfitt, me too. Spent all my remaining 6 yrs at 2AD, half the time in the cleanroom.
About my vice. I would say that it was used/abused more than most others. It is now worn and no longer clamps square and even. In fact, it is now more often used for holding another vice; holding one handle/side of a pair of surgical clamps. I find these work much better than alligator clips.
The other vice was made from a broken G-clamp, and the jaws from broken files. It is my main vice. Though it is heavy, I often clamp it to the worktable to keep it steady when hacksawing metal.
Anyway, keep up the good works, and imagination with your creativity... it's good for the mind and soul.
