    I use a plastic soft drink bottle. Put a piece of double sided tape on the cap and attach the body to it. I put some sand or gravel in the bottom of the bottle to aid in stability. I had a pic on the forum here but can't find it.

    Nitrile is all I use. Never have had a problem. I always spray my models with a solution of 80% distilled water and 20% isopropyl alcohol (91%) and dry with compressed air before painting.

    I think you answered your own question, Skip. Different browser.

    Great work! I've got one that's about 90% done with the exception of the floor pan and it's attached parts. It was warped and I managed to break it. I'll try again sometime to finish it and hope it comes out as nice as yours.

    Great job! This model was the first one I finished when I returned to the hobby. It's an easy build and one that I recommend for beginners or as a confidence booster, if needed. At the time I finished mine, I needed a boost after a few failures.

    I was just thinking, why does he have a shipping charge with a price like that? Maybe he meant 99 cents and fell asleep on the 9 button.

    I believe that the sanding cloths contain silicone. As Bill said, that will cause fisheyes. Follow his recommendation and WASH THOROUGHLY! I always use Dawn. Get the blue stuff with no moisturizers in it.

    I paint with lacquers and they're tough to remove. You might also need to use a stiff bristle brush with the alcohol on some places.

    Some use the small metal ferrules that you can find in the sewing section at Walmart, Hobby Lobby, Michael's, etc.
