Tena Lady solution - thought we had enough dampness already.

Wow Richard, talk about 'Wetting the Appetite' I've nearly wet something else. Looking really good Richard. Perhaps you could keep your kit cutter fully stocked with Haribos in case he starts flagginglaugh.

It's looking good Ron. Servo at the back is a great idea. Much less slop than using the bell crank, almost worth doing a retro fit.

Nice! Did you design it or is it available somewhere. Could be very useful for when we get the WR P51.

Looking really nice Graham. I am impressed by the speed of your building and finishing.

Ron, enjoy the build. It will be interesting to see how you build the tail with the servo at the back. It's a bit tight down there.

I wonder if they have Jeti instructions in english?

Thank you both for putting things into perspective. The finishing of a warbird is certainly the hardest part of the build compared to a sport model. Off to SMC soon to pick up some sample paints.

Thanks Paul, didn't think of that.

Oh !!! what happened to the 110? On Richards suggestion I have been waiting to hear how the maiden when it happens before trying mine.

09/07/2020 12:28:28

Thank you Richard,

I think what I really asking is a picture of somebodies model along with actual acrylic paint shade used so I don't worry that it looks wrong.

Thank you guys for your help.

I think it’s time I admitted something and get it out in the open. After doing a lot of research I have come to realise that I suffer with a form of ADHD - perfectionism. This is where very little is right and so what will others think. This leads to procrastination, anxiety and round we go again.

In the case of the WB spit, I have spent many hours looking at paint charts from different manufacturers comparing paint colours against pictures (of which non match) and so asking for help.

The same happened with my guitar playing which I have now stopped.

This condition seems to get worse as I get older.

Thank you for reading.

ps. Richard, The bf109 really did fall from a height and broke its back end.

Thank you Ron, I am really looking for ready mixed scale colours that can be airbrushed.

08/07/2020 17:36:38

I am at the stage where I can apply paint to mine. I can't use normal solvent based paints due to health reasons so I am left with acrylics. Having looked at most of the brands, there is quite a variation of colour for shades of the same name.

I know that a number get their emulsion mixed at a diy store. but to do that you need to take a good printed sample which I don't have.

I don't mind which colour scheme. Aircraft will be a mk5 with no invasion stripes. paint will be airbrushed.

Thank you.

Sorry, can’t keep up with the acronyms generated on here. Got too much building to do.

Thread: Vinyl cutter

I have the very old Craft Robo, the forerunner to the Cameo and it is excellent. I should upgrade to A3 as I am struggling with the 210mm width. I cannot get replacement blades for the CC200 and although the Cameo blades fit they don't cut as well as the older blades.

But a few hundreds pound very well spent.

I use the 100 micron paint-mask material from MetaMark, I have tried others but keep coming back to them.


Everything you can see was done on the plotter, roundels, stencils reg and nomenclature.

I have a plug in for Illustrator so do all the graphics heavy work in Illustrator.



Danny, Could you tell me which details are vinyl and which ace been sprayed using a paint mask.

I have only used coloured vinyl so far, only trouble is that there is a limited range of useful colours.


26/06/2020 22:08:51

I agree with Martin. I also have a Silhouette Cameo. I have only used it for decals so far, both vinyl and print and cut.

I find it very useful (so do other club members).
