  1. So I’m working on the Kinetic EA-6B and it’s coming together. I was placing the nose cone part and saw the instructions suggested weighting down the nose. I took my putty and filled the cone up and slide a couple quarters in as well for good measure. After an hour or so I glued the nose on the jet. The next day I painted the model. Now this afternoon, (24 hours after the paint job), I noticed wrinkles in the nose. As touched to see what was going on and the nose dented in like it was chewing gum when I touched it. I literally pulled it apart. It appears the putty disintegrated the plastic. Now I need a replacement nose cone. I have emailed Kinetic’s address I found online, but in case I can’t get a replacement part, does anyone have any suggestions for a new nose cone? Thanks, and now lesson learned about using putty in that manner. regards, jim
  2. Guten Tag, I'm quite new to the modeling scene (I've only made two other models); And for my third model, I plan on using the "Tamiya basic type putty" to fill in the gaps to hopefully make it look better. Now, I've never used putty before so I'm looking for the best way to apply putty into a seam. Any suggestions/tips would be appreciated, Grüß Gott.
