  1. Manfred, You did a fantastic job finishing the London bus and I know Thomas is proudly watching down on it now. You did a wonderful thing. Mike.
  2. Manfred, Hopefully the superglue will cure fast and there will be no fogging. Mike.
  3. Hi Manfred, I'm not sure how long the Micro Krystal Klear takes to dry. I think it's about an hour or so.
  4. Hi Manfred, As superglue is curing it gives of the fumes. It could take several days. The Micro Krystal Klear or Formula 560 Canopy Glue or something similar is best for installing clear plastic.
  5. Manfred, Have you used the Pattex superglue on clear plastic before this build? The fumes from superglue can fog the clear plastic. Mike.
  6. Hi Manfred, I use either Formula 560 Canopy Glue or Microscale Micro Krystal Klear for gluing windows into painted car bodies. These are a strong and won't harm the paint. http://www.supergluecorp.com/?q=zap/zap-glues/formula-560-canopy-glue http://www.microscale.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=MI-9 Mike.

    1/1000 1701-A Refit

    This looks great! The aztec looks much better with the base coat sprayed over it. You sprayed some base color over the markings too?
  8. Hi Manfred, That would be nice if you get to finish Thomas' Revell Shuttle Stack and display it on his MLP. You now have 2 really great MLP's which will make a nice display. You and Elisabeth have a Happy New Year too!
  9. Manfred, Thanks for showing the pictures of Thomas' build that you will be using. Thomas did an incredible job! Would you mind showing some close up pictures of Thomas' MLP? Will you be building another Shuttle Stack as Discovery STS-41D to put on Thomas' MLP? Happy New Year! Mike.
  10. Manfred, This is a wonderful thing you are doing! I can't wait to see it it finished. Merry Christmas! Mike.
  11. Hi Manfred, I'm also looking forward to seeing the build thread of your friend Thomas' bus you finished. What parts of his Space Shuttle Launch Complex 39A with Discovery STS-41D will you be integrating into your project? Do you have pictures of the parts you'll be using? Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Mike.

    Revell 1/144 OV-099 Challenger

    I just removed the horizontal bands(ribs) and the vertical Inter-Tank ribs. I did this while the 2 halves were glued together.
  13. Manfred, The Main Sprocket set looks fantastic! I can't wait to see you put all this together. Mike.

    Revell 1/144 OV-099 Challenger

    It's nice to see a Revell stack being built. I actually prefer the look of the Revell shuttle. The cockpit's window area seems to have a more accurate shape than the Airfix kit. Thanks for the compliment. I don't think my pictures show anymore since PhotoBucket started charging. I didn't pay for their service. I just shaved off the ET's horizontal ribs with a razor saw. I think it took about 10 minutes to do at the time. It wasn't pretty so I have to use a sanding stick to clean it up and some putty but it wasn't difficult.
