Bob, hang in there, I'm 7 months out of a double lung transplant and am doing great. You'll do fine. I'm sorry about your moter in law.

I have started on my Shackleton and this is an ancient kit with raised rivet and pannel detal but almost no cockpit or wheelwell detail.

As an experiment I lightly sanded the detail on the surface to see if I can tone it down however to get a nice equal look doesnt work for me so I will re'scribe some of the detail and sand smooth.

Theuns, that is a big improvement. I can see why you wanted to go through the trouble. Your version is much better.

I agree with BK that looks really good Theuns. Do you mind sharing what your prefered tool for getting these results is? I have never tried this for fear of butchering it - pun intended..

 

Nice work for sure!

Thanks Steve, I'm really glad you're doing well.  I had my appointment with the transplant team on Tuesday and they think I'll be a good candidate for transplant, but I'll find out for sure next week.  It's been rough on the family losing her, but I think we're doing as good as we can.

I've got to agree with the others Theuns, that looks really nice.  Night and day difference.

I know I can speak for many others when I say we've been pulling for Steve, and the same can be said for you SB. We are all pulling for you.

I use a standard tamya scriber, for the straight edge I use a thin strip og litho plate that shapes well around corners.

 

I actually need another new blade for my scriber as the one I now have is getting dull, when it is new it really gives exelent sharp fine detail, a must have tool together with my trumpeter rivet tool....I cant go without them :)
