  1. What else do you model besides SIBs?

    Thats very impressive. That would be a fun industry to be a part of.
  2. CA Glue incident

    I really like CA and use it a lot. I agree though it can be troublesome. A similar problem I have is switching between an old bottle and a new one. I try to get out every last drop before getting a new bottle and very often I'm squeezing the bottle very hard by the time its done. I then switch to a new bottle with the same habit of squeezing hard and of coarse glue goes every where. Be careful with CA. One more note on CA. If you end of glueing your fingers to your model and don't want to break the model getting them off I have found that instead of pulling try twisting. As you twist the glued area it comes apart and creates a smaller and smaller serface until pulling them apart is easy and doesnt break things.

    Looks like you pulled it right out of the picture.

    She's great. I've learned it can be better not to compare my work to others. Absolutely learn from others and try to emulate what I like about others work but, every one is on their own path. If your ship is better then the last then your doing great. Even the greatest modelers are critical of their own work and hope the next will be better. In that way we're all the same.
