I'm calling the scale police, and they're going to lock you up.

We could always add a sub association - the PSSSA.

Power Semi Scale Soaring Association just for us mere mortals! laugh

Considering the liberties taken with shapes across the pond, I think we do alright.

PNQTSSA - Power Not Quite True Scale Soaring Association!

... now I'm beginning to understand...

So, the 'Scale' in PSSA isn't the definition of those miraculous little devices with a precision down to 0,1gr and sold in Shenzhen??? ... surprise

That's probably also why nobody mentions the weights of their parts and/or sub-assemblies in their blogs...

Cheers & stay scale all

Hey you lot, remember the rules for scale modellers during Lock-down, where's the slide?

Masking became a mix of different techniques. I first made a template of the desired drawing from low tack masking film,just the curved parts. I made them a little smaller actually (the width of the fine line tape ).Then went around it with the fine line tape to where the straight line began.You have to pull a little while pressing it down to avoid wrinkles. I'm surprised it went that easy!On to the painting !

Well,the painting went fine,just a few dust particles wich i can polish out when the paint is hard .

Just a few tips for those who have to do similar paint jobs

Go over the fine line tape with a small roller to secure it 100%

Take all the masking away before the paint is completely dry so you don't have to '' brake it ''

Before you spray, take the dust away with a sticky cloth!embarrassed

Fantastic job, Dirk.

Are these the same Motip cans - available from the Brico - you used for the red? cool

So, I guess the Sharan timing belt went OK as well? ... wink

Cheers

Chris

Thanks, Dirk.

Nope... not getting 'old', just 'experienced'... big difference there...

Cheers & stay safe in St Niklaas

I am always envious of those that can do masking and spraying, as I don't have the skills/patience/setup

Very sharp paint job Dirk.
