Lately I have been using tamiya cement to fix my clear parts and it has been working well until now. I had a little too much solvent on my brush and got a little drip on the windscreen.

Hi all, I'm currently working on my KH 1:48 AH-1Z, and am in the process of adding some detail to it - I've never liked having open photoetched screens with nothing behind them, and on the Cobra, there are a couple that are particularly obvious, because you can see daylight through them. As such, I want to avoid having an empty hole on my model, so I'm looking for photos of what's behind these particular grates: I don't necessarily need extreme detail, but I'd like to at least get an idea of what's behind them, particularly the general location of the structure inside (e.g. is it a
I have heard a lot of good things about this kit so I decided to pick one up and I started the build immediately. It is really a good kit but not perfect. I have mixed feelings about rised rivets.

The pit lacks of seatbelts which is painful especially since it is hard to find any good pictures showing how they look. Nevertheless the parts fit together pretty nicely and the kit seem to be well engineered. So this is what
First, let me start off by saying that this is NOT a review by me. I am wholly unqualified to put off such a thing, as I am just getting back into model building after decades of not building for various reasons. Anyway, I just happened upon a review like none I have ever seen before, and believe me, over the last 6 months, all I have been doing is researching the kits I hope to build. So I found this Korean page, giving the most thorough and detailed review I have ever seen. The review has more than a dozen photos of the aircraft depicted in the kit, from inside the cockpit, in-fl
