Back in the garage again Christmas is just a distant memory. I am now working a radar screen for this model hopefully if all goes well when the radar scanner is turned the screen will also work.

An interesting idea that Stan, a bit like those "chaser" lights we sometimes see during the festive period. I hope it works ok for you. :-)

HI al2612 Radar screen now has a map fitted in front of the rotating L E D  ready to fit the front  cover and finish off the detail. Then it need wiring into the radar scanner circuit and hopefully they will both come on together more pictures to follow.

I love your attention to detail with this sort of thing- it's little bits of detailing that make a model even more interesting! :-))

I have started to cover outside of the hull prior to priming. I am trying a product from Deluxe models. The resin is water based and it is used in conjunction with a lightweight fibre glass sheet.  More pictures to  follow when primer is applied.

How did you find the Ezecote and Glass cloth? The finish looks very smooth.
