|Thread: How are you buying your modeling stuff in 2020|
We have 2 model shops in town, one allows 6 customers at a time and the other takes phone or internet orders and has curbside service. I have been using both shops to pick up my supplies.
|Thread: Hatch Catch|
I have been making my own latches. A piece of bent wire and a spring rescued from a dried up ball point pen works.
I soldered on the washer, but a locking collar will work.
There was an article in RCM&E

|Thread: Chris McG F-86 Sabre Dog build blog|
Sorry to read that La Grotte is off limits Chris. Maybe you could find a small corner in your house to carry on with some parts of the build. I do all my building in a 5' 6" x 6' 6" [1.9 x 2.0]metre closet. My wife quilts in a larger room and I build airplanes, that's what will keep us sane over the upcoming months.
