  1. I never use the sandpaper to remove the central palstic lines. I just use my "delicate" file. After the central line is sandpapered, I polish all the canopy with a car (but multiporpouse) cream. It is from Arexons since the one I was used to use is not more imported in Italy (the product was called "IOSSO" and it was first sold for shinying cromate boat parts - it was fantastic). I also use this paste in order to restore dark or clear visor from my flight helmet collection or my motorcycle helmet visor. It REALLY works fine. Within a 7-10 minutes your canopy will be ready. cheers Maurizio

Use Evergreen stirene sheet or rods for adding particulars... sorry for my English-explanation Good luck! ciao Maurizio Bressan this tip is from my

I airsbush the tires in Humbrol matt black as usual. after 2 days I pass the tire in trough my fingers. since the fingers are little bit "grease" the black MATT paint will appear a little more satin, a real satin. You can decide if your tires will be more satin or more glossy... up to you! cheers Maurizio Bressan www.ma-files.it[/url] thanx for the suggestion to:
