I have issued the awards to the 13 finishers. The Gallery is quiet amusing, good work gang!

I wanted to add a radio wire from the antenna to the tail fin on my recently completed Ki-44.I decided to try EZ Line. I had pre-drilled a .010 hole in the antenna mast before I attached it to the fuselage. I thought the EZ line worked pretty well. The only hard part was threading a limp .010 wire through a .010 hole, once through I attached a pair of tweezers to the line to put a little stretch on it and applied superglue. I had tried stretched sprue before and this works better.

A little update. I thought I would start the arduous task of masking the canopy (and turret) on my FAA Avenger (was my entry in the FAA Campaign a few years ago). I have gathered the tools - Check, got a fresh beer - Check and a (not so fine) Cigar - Check. I am using masks for a Hasegawa Avenger on a old Frog Avenger. I see that I might need to do a little 'tweeking' of the masks to make them fit. At least in my mind it is much better then just trying to mask with a roll of tape. But no worry, I will not let procrastination take me over - you just wait and see...



Cheers

Um, dude, I don't know how to break this to you. We're on to Hanger Queen 6 by now. Guess I should lock this one.
