      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    If the paint bubbled after you finished applying the last "coat" it probably is the result of not allowing the paint to "gas out" for a few minutes between coats (ask me how I know)......   Even with fast drying lacquer, I think you need to wait 10-20 minutes between coats, at least that's what I was told when I had a similar albeit less severe issue.  I think Ray's response is also correct though.  sacrifice a few plastic spoons to make sure your viscosity, pressure and spray distances are OK before you jump on the model itself.

    Thanks, Bill.  I have problems with my vise and my vices too.

    Pin vice question
    What hand held pin vise (or other drill devise) do you use for very small diameter bits in the #84 to # 70 range? I' would like to find one with a collet that is capable of a true 0' and can keep small diameter bits centered properly. My garden variety vices don't seem to be able to do either. Low cost and precision may be mutually exclusive terms, but I'm looking for the best compromise.
    Thanks for your input.

    Bill, would you mind sharing your technique for removing the roof from the donor? Looks pretty clean for such a delicate piece.
