and now for something completely different

i have problems at the moment as i dont have an airbrush so whatever i make has to be painted by rattle can or hairy brush, and realised this can be done like that, and since i really fancy doing something different and i did get this for crimbo, its the next thing on the bench

one thing i wasnt impressed with was although the whole kit was sealed in a bag there was a sizeable number of parts broken off the sprues

Hi Paul,

This look's like a very interesting kit, seeing the box photo, it has a turning handle, does that mean this will this me a fully moving model...??

As for the state of the spurs, might be worth popping an e-mail off with the photos to Airfix, you never know, they might feel festive...

Andy... popcorn

it does indeed have a turning handle so need to be careful with the glue .........ive got the single cylinder 4 stroke engine too thats cut away so that you can see the cylinder going up and down and the valves going in and out

im not bothered about the sprues.....all the parts are there, just seems poor that so many were broken off

A trick I learned when building my Visible V-8's is to put a drop of cooking oil ( Corn oil) on the moving parts before gluing other parts to them. Not only will it work as a lubricant it will keep the glue from sticking to the moving parts. I have been told light machine oil will work as well as petroleum Jelly (Vaseline). Hope that helps.
