Painting my fleet

Recommended Posts

Hi the method was tiny pilot hole in the end, then 2mm drill up the nacell,measure the length first and mark your drill bit so you know you've gone far enough in(I can't stress how important this is you've never drilled as far as you think you have ) if you haven't gone far enough in the next part will be a pain.

Now score the knife repeatedly along the nacelle bars edge till it slices through without pressure. I tried using force first and it twisted the bars more and more and I slipped and cut the bats from an engine.

Finally a disclaimer. I am insane, it is not my fault if you bugger up your toys trying this stupid idea. I have a problem and I can't help myself. Have fun and if this is your first time with a pin vice drill wear a steel thimble then your thumb won't resemble a colander like mine does.

Nice work!  I'm loving the...well, everything!

Any close-ups of the other snubfighters?  And are you planning on getting a second AF MkII to be the Gallant Haven?  After all, you'll want to keep those beautiful fighters on the table as long as you can... ;)
