    Ah, that infamous shrinking!
    Happens to me quite often, Allan. I believe the chance to happen is at areas where the styrene is thin and glue concentrates for one reason or another….
    And, yes, it takes a few days to stop!

    Thanks Eric, should not be too difficult to fix, ————-
    Thanks Spiros, I would have expected it to show sooner, ————

    All it needs is time. One of the most difficult parts of the hobby, I think. . .

    Waiting is so frustrating when you are at the end of a build, isn’t it? I guess that’s the advantage of working on several kits at the same time.

    It is as you say Eric, thanks for following !!

  • Spiros Pendedekas said 1 month ago:

    Yep, this kind of shrinking can be nerve wracking, Allan @kalamazoo!
    Funny how styrene glue works!

    I think it’s done with the shrinking, a lot of masking for two or so little patches, but better than cleaning up over spray !!

    Nice, my friend @kalamazoo!
    Overspraying is the story of my airbrushing time 🙂
