Re: Happy Birthday Pearl

I made the decision to put Pearl to sleep on April 15th. While the experience itself was anguishing, once it was over I didn't feel any sadness. There's an emptiness, to be sure, and you never quite love a pet so much as the one you grew up with. But it was time, and she and I both knew it. She too...

Re: Spindrift from Land of the Giants by Polar Lights

Update for today... I used this technique in my Apollo 11 Eagle build to separate the two glass (?) panels in the upper docking window port of the LEM. Only that time I used red adhesive backed vinyl strips. I cut thin strips of black sticky backed vinyl thin enough to fit along the back edge of the...

Re: Spindrift from Land of the Giants by Polar Lights

Decided to unmask the bow window ports in case any of the tape had come unsealed along the edges. Was planning a quick re-masking with fresh tape before priming when I noticed one of my worst fears.... Both windows had a tiny bit of "crap" on the inside surface??? It was quite clearly visi...

Re: 1966 AMT Enterprise Nacelle Dilemma

I've used nail acrylic for windows before. I used it in my Leif Ericson but not much since then. Makes for really tough slightly opaque windows which is fine since I don't want you to see the interior.

Re: Spindrift from Land of the Giants by Polar Lights

The saga continues... The gap in the upper hull and window frame was closed about 75% using Plastic Surgery glue and holding for about 1 minute. More glue was then run along the seam for added strength. The next step is using putty to complete the contours: https://farm1.staticflickr.com/808/4029915...

Re: Spindrift from Land of the Giants by Polar Lights

Engine lights... Six LEDs wired in parallel - three on each circuit. The black wire is common while the Tencontrols flasher board has two white wires for each of the two circuits. This is actually the second set of 6 LEDs I soldered for the engine glow effect. The first time I used the red LEDs that...
