Where would you go to even find them?  Never seen them advertised.

Pickles Auctions Gazza...

You see them come up from time to time. A few ending tomorrow even, they're a bit long in the tooth but some have less than 20K's on the clock.

After my recent Wingnut Wings acquisitions, I tried to convince myself to a little time of new kit abstinence. Didn't work out and with the help of Ernie's excellent WIP, I had no choice ;).

I am anything but a prude, but I have to say that, with this stance,  « Mindy » looks like the only long haul relationship she is likely to develop is with her pimp ...

Just my :2c:, of course :D

You're right. I *might* be tempted, just out of sheer curiosity, of course ...

Sure, and naturally out of scientific reasoning only, I'm sure :D, that's at least, what I tell my wife in this kind of situation. I'm not that deep  into this trucker and babes thing, but maybe this is because I don't own a truck ;).

Been on a buying binge... I had forgot I ordered this...

It's the bombardier's nose blister for my Dambuster Lanc. Needs a little polishing, but it's very nicely done.

Bill, nice to see what it looks like. I've got two of them on the way but everything I read says overseas shipments  to Canada are completely screwed up.

What you guys usually use for polishing?

P21S Alu-Polish :D, yesterday I received the ordered paste and spent five hours polishing my turntable, which started to look a little ugly, with humidity and hints of salt in the air. Hand polishing for hours in a heat wave, man I was exhausted. I have to make a second session, to get it right, but had no more power left yesterday.
The paste worked better than expected. OT-end, just being a little sensitive to polishing lately ;)

Back to topic, sometimes, it is not necessary to polish at all. The part Bill has shown might only need a dip into Future to enhance clarity, which I generally do with clear parts.
If polishing is necessary, because of a scratch or a seam, my method depends on how much material has to be removed. a protruding seam, I remove carefully scratching with a blade and start to grind carefully with my Albion pads from coarse to fine. If further polishing is needed, I use my micro drill with a soft cotton disc and some fine polishing paste by Tamiya.
If I can get away without polishing the last step, I do, because it's so easy that lets say a canopy is caught by the cotton disc and sent airborne or I crack the brittle stuff while holding.
A coat of Future is preferable here too and often sufficent. The benefit here is that besides enhancing clarity, you can glue e.g. PE parts or frames with CA, without the risk of fogging.

Cheers Rob
