  1. You can also fold a piece of cardboard over the tail and tape it in place to protect it.
  2. You should remove the needle out the front, otherwise you can drag paint back into the internal parts of the airbrush.
  3. I would use a metal rod. such as a straight pin or music wire, and place it as late in the build as practical. Yeah, pewter will bend, but only so many times before it too fails because of stress fracture occurring. Bob
  4. Quite a few years ago I sent a request in for replacement wings for their BAE Hawk !/48. The wings in the kit were severely warped. A month or two later they sent me not one but TWO sets of wings....both more warped than the original ones!! Guess whose kits I am NEVER buying again!! They are their own words enemy.

What you want to do is get a spray can of Tamiya Fine Whte Primer and shoot it right out of the can. It lays down beautifully and the model is white. It is a great base for any white you put over it. Done in no time at all. It is just easier this way. Keep it simple. Bob
