  1. I cannot recommend highly enough this vice https://www.bunnings.com.au/stanley-multi-angle-hobby-vice_p5860190?gclid=CjwKCAiAz4b_BRBbEiwA5XlVVtknHMycDWIEAYWkdZecVyfQxlkbbJsjcMu9fU3DjRzeMCQEKuCCqxoC7lcQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
  2. As far as I understand the hairspray technique just involves 1 (Primer first) Then A base coat of the colour you eventually want to show through as chips (eg rust red for a vehicle for eg) 2 Spray hairspray lightly on.

  7. Thankyou Hsae The figures are in fact Gunthwaite figures.

  10. Thanks normanh. I agree with the bulkheads. managed to finish the planking in this area finally. Need to sand and varnish later.
