  1. So sorry to hear what happened. You did the best you could do: You continued the model for him amd you. Thats strength. I am highly impressed by your build and your person. Kind regards from Sweden /Pontus
  2. As I remember it, this line of ships where French constructions from the beginning... Russia bought two from France as I remember it, and later a number of russian ships were based on that construction they bought.
  3. As beeing said here, very common amongst 1/350 and 1/700 modellers. Also among WWI airplane modellers. I think its there where it originated. Has been used for a rather long time now, and I have known about these products for at least 10 years. Never heard ONE single negative thing about them.

  9. Welcome to heaven! I am also in Linköping :) Have the same background as you I would say. ie: Im a returning modeller. Cheers!
  10. Hi there Good luck with your new project Patience is the first thing you need. That can not be bought though I would say a bender could be nice to have, but you can come a long way with simply a small steel ruler and a razor blade for bending PE. Remember it should always be done on a hard surface, like maybe a tile or a small piece of glass. CA works fine. Another option is the acrylic Hobby glue from Gator Grip. It is a bit more forgiving and gives more time for placing/building your PE parts. Bigger PE parts can be placed with
