    At first I thought it was an old Graupner kit, might just be a scratch build. Either way itโ€™s super nice!!!!

    Bruce! I always use insta-set, just be mindful of the spray and at times resulting smoke fumes while curing. Also, get a a pile of crappy brushes so you can open the insta-set bottle and use a brush to only dab specific areas so you won't broadcast the spray all over the items to be joined.

    Like Ken, I go with Tamiya Extra Thin all the time. When I have an assembly that will be under some extra stress I double up with a slow setting epoxy in hidden areas.
    When in doubt run some break tests on some scrap if you have some lying about. I am โ€œtestโ€ obsessed with glues and especially rattle can paints.

    Thanks for the post Lew. I do my best to get figures and interiors into everything I build...especially if it's runs, flies or floats. Just adds another nuance to the build and I enjoy the challenge of sourcing figures. By way of explanation...

    Right now there's a gentleman in Spain who is doing wonderful work for me albeit pricey. He did my 1:16th scale USGC crew and my 1:24 Caltex captain and mate plus three additional figures. (52Euro and 48Euro respectively).

    3D printing has been a boon for the hobby industry and some of the work almost goes beyond scale to almost lifelike. Jeff Shiu in China raised the bar on figure sculpts to the point where the figures have a discernible personality...re: the tank commander picture. Sadly he has also become the most pirated figure sculptor on Earth. Jeff's figures go for $45 a piece.

    The last photo is of a 1:29 scale train engineer that I ordered yesterday from a young fella who specializes in human figures in multiple scales on Etsy (of all places) for $5. He takes 360 degree 24P photos of regular people and he's off to the races!
    I am trying to get him to get some folks dressed in seafaring garb!

    The Sopwith Camel pilot was a kit bash of mine...from an old 1:12th scale bust that cost about $10 years ago.

    The James Hunt figure in 1:8th scale was cheap about 10 years ago, but it was a limited run by a sculptor in Belgium for a man who markets (impossible to find) large scale F1 kits. Today that figures goes for 140Euro and up.

    Grab the Rustoleum primers too for tests. Also check out their Satin Claret Wine. It's almost spot on Colin's red lead oxide. Their main upside is they gas out faster than the Krylon paints. They also spray very well for a rattle can over a large surface area with a more robust nozzle, not to mention that they are cheaper than Krylon. A few test sprays on primed scrap is ALWAYS advised. On a personal note: The Krylon Fusion paints stink to High-Heaven and can lead to a one way ticket to divorce court, but their gloss quality is great. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Also, my son has been steering me towards GamesWorkshop/Citadel Paints. But, the top of the line rattle cans by "The Army Painter," and are all the rage with the "games figures" crowd, although at $20 a can they are pricey! But they set fast, gas out well, and dry super flat. Truth be told, I have to do more experimenting with these Warhammer paints...I'm not sold on them yet despite their color variety.

    Double accounts have exploded everywhere in the last two weeks and itโ€™s become a huge issue over at Facebook. The popular Zelle $ transfer service is a mess right now. Always helps to change your passwords and be watchful.

    Finally managed my ballast test in an old tub I'm re-finishing at my son's place. I was thrilled with the outcome. Even without the iron pipe bits she sat perfectly. Dang! I wish this winter will come to an end so I can get to the lake! ๐Ÿ˜œ

    After gagging on the last few questions, I ran down to the shop and painted up my 1:16 USCG crew for my upcoming Dumas build. It seemed to have changed my luck a bit! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Just saw a nice Model Shipways lifeboat that was made of die-cut plywood hanging in a forgotten corner of a very small local hobby shop. The owner is a wonderful man who orders odd bits and pieces for me, but more importantly he keeps his balsa and basswood displays fully stocked at all times!

    "H" ! Glad you like the Grammys! I spent 38 years in Hollywood feature films and when I retired I ran from the biz like I would run from a burning building! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ. But, I always enjoyed working with musicians and film composers when ever I got the chance. Had a few drinks with Miley's dad many years ago. Mark Mothersbaugh of DEVO is big in movie and TV composing nowadays. Big Talent. ๐Ÿ˜Š
