  2. Hello there I am working on the anchors for my 1/84 scale Victory by model space and would like to know if anyone knows the thread size for binding the stock on the anchor I feel I am going to run out I don't think the kit does not give you enough thread the color is not important the anchor will be painted when finished thank you Ronald
  3. all righty thanks Gary I'll stay with the black wheels Ronald
  4. black wheels Gary I am not doubting you but the photos on the real Victory show a grays color wheels I can go with black if it is correct aesthetically Ronald

    cutting out the gunports

    yes I saw the post and it is a good idea if I can find that bit I will try it, but I also drill a few small holes under the main dimensions as well thank you Ronald
  11. Hello there I am in the process of cutting out the second level of gun ports on my model space Victory and found that the x-actor blades are not cutting to good even being new the instruction say to cut diagonally to the center hole and dig out the rest and to leave enough wood to sand to the right dimensions which would be 12mm X12mm, but it is taking way to long my question is there any super sharp blades that would cut thought balsa or what ever the planks are made of to fit a #11 handle will scalpel blades work better I know they are extremely sharp any suggestions would be fine thank you Ronald
