  1. https://www.amazon.com/EZLine-Simulating-Wires-Charcoal-Black/dp/B07KSDVF4V/ref=asc_df_B07KSDVF4V/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312136795426&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=5010355661960664780&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9005171&hvtargid=pla-630405503981&psc=1
  2. This may depend on what kind of access you have to the mirror site. I would paint and the decal the model in your usual sequence. Then in the mirror site(s) brush paint it black and when dry brush paint a drop of Future (or the like). Then, once the gloss is thoroughly dry, use a Molotow Liquid Chrome marker/pen to fill it in. They come in various sizes. I would get the smallest. Mine is 1mm. Practice on a piece of scrap plastic first. I did this on the mirrors of a 1/24 racing car and they came out very nice. HTH Bob
  3. I'd drill a dimple halfway or so into the plastic. A 1/16 drill bit is about the right size, based on your noted size. Paint it silver, add the appropriate clear color and overcoat if necessary with a drop of gloss. Bob
  4. Correct. On the first few reverse passes, use very light pressure (just the weight of the scriber) and angle it slightly into the raised panel line. I think tomorrow I may be able to do a cut and paste of the appropriate paragraph. Bob
  5. On straight (or nearly straight) lines, run the scriber backwards along the raised panel lines to establish a shallow groove. Then use the normal pulling motion to enhance the groove. On circular/oval etc areas you will probably need a scribing guide. Randy Lutz had a very concise guide to rescribing, but I can't find it with Google. Maybe someone else can chime in with the info. I may have it on an old computer. Bob
  6. Darren, I just looked in my model closet and....I have one!! How is it as a kit? Bob
  7. Check Youtube for "building a small spray booth" or the like. All you really need is that and some dryer vent hose. Many videos out there. No reason this could not work.. HTH Bob
  8. It depends somewhat on the sheen of the paint. the flatter the paint the more coats. Generally two. Also depends on how glossy you want it to be. It dries pretty fast, but I'm never in that much of a hurry. Model building isn't a race. I'd give it 24 hours prior to masking, but I'm sure some do it much sooner. You can spray it on fairly heavily without runs. Beats Future hands down. Bob
  9. Tamiya X-22 thinned with Mr Color Leveling Thinner, about 50/50 at about 15 psi. Bob
  10. He's over on largescaleplanes.
  11. If there is a local hobby shop, you might approach them. They might agree to take your models on consignment and sell them. This gives them merchandise on the shelves at not cost to them. If they accept this premise, agree to a mutually agreeable percent ratio. A lot depends on what models you have and who might want them. Also..model meets, club meetings, contests, check buy/sell on ARC etc.. HTH Bob
  12. Thanks for all the information. I appreciate all of the replies. Bob
  13. I'm trying to look up the selling prices of two Hasegawa 1/48 (high grade "SP", metal wheel hubs etc) F-14's....an "A" and "D" model without any success. I know those sorts of prices depend upon what the buyer is willing to spend etc and can vary widely. I have Googled using many different entries. Can anyone here give me an approximate value? Lacking that, can anyone direct me to an easy to use data base/site that I could use to look up such information? Thanks for any help. Bob
  14. What's the purpose of the semi-circular cutout in the razor saw? I've never seen that before. Thanks.
  15. Pete must be salivating like a rabid dog :) :) Bob
