  1. Hey guys cheers for all the great advice! Gonna have an experiment with it all! sorry for the late reply been away! Excellent stuff can get on with my F-117 now! cheers al :)
  2. Hey guys, i'm having a bit of a nightmare at the moment filling some unsightly gaps on Revell's 1/48 F-117 nighthawk mainly between the fuselage and wings. I use the following methods: 1. masking tape either side along area to be filled to minimise excess filler 2. fill the gap 3. rub down with isoprophyl alcohol on a q-tip/cotton bud 4. sand any remaining stubborn filler with finer and finer sandpaper BUT!! I still have problems i seem to get ridges between the filler and the plastic or noticeable lines where the filler ends and the plastic begins no matter how much rubbing and sanding i do. I currently use squadron white putty. It's really bugging me because i kinda hoped i would by now have been able to make real nice flush smooth gap fills like most of the work on this site, yet i get these horrible (small but noticeable - to my eye anyway) ridges between filler and plastic. Is there something i am doing wrong or could do better? many thanks sorry for the waffle. al
  3. ahh thats gorgeous! but now i need to start my BMF one but so little time! Al
  4. I know some may say i have double posted (if they've been to jet modelling) but this post is directed to technique whereas the other is better related to actual reference. I am building a 1/48 Revell F-117 and was wondering if you guys had any tips for great all black finishes on this aircraft or similar ones (Blackbirds, X-15s etc) Many thanks Al
  5. I am building the Revell 1/48 F-117. I have only ever finished one 'all black' scheme (a Sr-71 Blackbird) i was wondering how best to finish the 'all black' scheme and to what level or any i should weather the craft. Also if anyone has any good reference, i have googled and that but some seem a bit worse for wear whereas others looking virtually brand new. Al
  6. wish i could make them like that! outstanding! al
