    Toothpicks work well to clean up painted canopy frames provided:
    -You use acrylic paint, not enamels or lacquers
    -You clean up the frames before the paint completely cures
    -You haven’t used Future (or similar) on the canopy
    Spiros (@fiveten), I’m with you. Getting a sharp blade near a canopy makes my hands shake.

    I’ve concluded that the starboard wing has too much dihedral and that the tailplane is pretty square.
    So, I cut the wing off, breaking one of the radar antennae off in the process.
    I’ve re-glued the wing on at a better angle.

    Two steps forward. . . .

    Good thing you realised it before painting it.

    Good job, Michael @michaelt!
    Some things you just can’t stand living with….

    Better to have it solved up forehand.
    Correcting it after painting would be a nightmare.

  • George R Blair Jr said 2 months, 4 weeks ago:

    Nice catch, Michael (@michaelt). I probably would have just kept pushing on it till it broke, and then had to deal with a much bigger problem. Much better to do it this way.

    George (@gblair) – actually I split the fuselage seam a bit vainly trying to “push”, and broke off one of the “towel rail” antenna under the fuselage. But don’t tell anyone…
