Assembling the resin model is similar
to putting together plastic injection models. After cleaning and matching joint we can use any kind medium and higher viscosity
CA glue, but proved the best is odorless PLASTICa++ZAP (orange bottle) from Pacer Technology. Dried joint is easy to shape
and polishes without pealing and sag holes.
Tools most handy to use are knife, medium and fine sand paper, needle files, scissors, soft brush
or mini spray brush
Painting is most rewarding part of finishing because is able to bring
some life in our little project. In search to find the perfect paint to match specific character of glider surface we went
trough with couple of the applications with sufficient results, but we are still in search for perfect match here in USA.
to consider are:
Humbrol semi gloss (is excellent for vintage gliders).
Pactra, Krylon (both spray cans) can do good on modern molded ones like Junior and Jantar.
Humbrol and Pactra flat are good for cockpit interiors.
